AROMOR CAPSULES

The trusty Dr. Light has once again hidden some secret capsules that will enhance Mega Man X's abilities. When he
steps into one of these capsules, it will come to life and change his appearance.

Here are descriptions of what some of the capsules do:

ARM
This addition to his arm power comes in 2 forms: Stock Charge Shot and Plasma Charge Shot. Stock allows you to
store up to 4 charges. You can release as many shots continually as you have stored. Plasma is an enormous shot
that will penetrate and damage even strong enemy framework.

HEAD
This allows Mega Man X to use his special weapons abundantly. When he charges the special weapon it consumes
weapon energy.

BODY
Creates a defense shield for Mega Man X. Reduces damage while building the Nova Strike, a devastating blast move.
Use the Giga Attack button when the Nova Strike is complete.

LEG
The boots allow Mega Man X to perform the Air Dash and Hover Dash:

AIR DASH
Either press the X button to jump, then the Dash button (triangle button) while in the air, or jump and press the Direc-
tional button forward twice quickly while in the air.
                                        Page 9

HOVER DASH
Press the X button to jump, then press the X button again to hover. Use the Directional button to move Mega Man X
left or right.When his hover power runs out, Mega Man X will fall to the ground. To cancel the Hover Dash, press the
X button while hovering.

ROBOT RIDE ARMOR

In addition to Armor Capsules, Dr. Light has set out 3 different armors known as Robot Ride Armor. Mega Man X
and Zero must find these 3 armors, each with different capabilities and functions. Some armor looks like a giant robot
that they can activate by jumping into it.
While Mega Man X and Zero will not be damaged when in the armor, the armor will take damage.

RIDDEN          Use the attack and dash functions inherent to Mega Man X and Zero. By attacking with 
                        strategic timing, it will release a very strong punch attack.
EAGLE           Press the X button to jump, then press and hold the X button again to hover in the air. Press
                        the (square) button or the (triangle) button to shoot missles.
LAND CHASER     Mega Man X can move rapidly with this multi-purpose motorbike armor. Use the Directional
                        button to control the bike, while pressing the (square) button or the (triangle) button to attack.
                        Try ramming enemies with the Dash technique.
                                        Page 10

ZERO'S LEARNING SYSTEM

When Mega Man X defeats a Maverick, he acquires that Maverick's ultimate weapon. Mega Man X then equips that
weapon into his arm cannon. Since Zero has a super power Z-Saber Zero must learn new Saber techniques from the
defeated Mavericks. Here is a short description of some techniques Zero can use:
KUUENBU         Press the X button to jump, then press the X button again while in the air. Zero will do a double
                        jump. Press the (square) button and Zero will perform a somersault slash move.
HIENKYAKU               Press the O button while jumping, or press the Directional button forward twice quickly while
                        jumping. Zero will perform the Air Dash, but cannot Air Dash directly from Dash Jump.
RYUENJIN                While standing on the ground, press the Directional button Up and the Ultimate Tenchnique
                        Button (triangle) simultaneously.
HYOURETASUZAN   While jumping, press Directional Button Down and the Ultimate Technique Button (triangle)
                        simultaneously.

CHARACTER FILES

MEGA MAN X

Reploid leader of the 17th Unit, Maverick Hunters. His creation is a mystery; nobody knows why he was built then
buried. Can X learn?
X is famous among Maverick Hunters for defeating Sigma and leading to its ultimate demise. X understands his role, and
believes in the need to protect reploids and human. But an inner conflict with violence makes him hesitant.

ZERO

Zero is Mega Man X's best friend and past partner.His creation is a mytery as well, shrouded in much speculation. Once
destroyed to protect X, Zero has been revived to continue the aid he has offered X previously.
Originally part of the 17th Unit, Maverick Hunters, Zero has been appointed to his own Special #0 Class Unit. With the
failure of Reploid Force, Zero's sparkling track record and calm demeanor are a necessary match for the canny experience
of Mega Man X.
                                        Page 12

DOUBLE

Dr. Cain's latest creation supports Mega Man X and Zero in many ways. Yet this prototype requires many treatments
and must be refined. While his prime directive is to assist the Maverick Hunters, it seems Douple's top priority is to be 
careless and zealous.

IRIS

Colonel's younger sister, she is distraught by the outbreak of Mavericks and the sudden riot of Reploid Force. Helpless
during the riot, she is rescued by Zero and is now devoted to stopping the battle between her brother and Zero.
                                        Page 13

COLONEL

Youngest high-ranking officer in the new Maverick regime. Prominent and strict with the Mavericks, Colonel treats his
troops and sister the same way - with respect.

GENERAL

Highest commander of the new Maverick regime. Widely recognized by Cain Labs and the Maverick Hunters for 
triggering the new Maverick outbreak.
