I just made this new thread. Just for Mega Man NES players. Enjoy.

Mega Man:
Cut Man: Use Super Arm (You cannot use Super Arm against him on Wily Stage 2 due to the lack of Arm Blocks.)
Elec Man: Use Rolling Cutter
Ice Man: Use Thunder Beam
Fire Man: Use Ice Slasher
Bomb Man: Use Fire Storm
Guts Man: Use Hyper Bomb
Rock Monster: Use Thunder Beam (Use NES pause glitch to defeat him for a nice quick knock out.)
Clone: Use Fire Storm/Thunder Beam (NES pause glitch can help you if you had trouble fighting him.)
Bubbles: Use Arm Cannon and Super Arm (Super Arm covers the last 4 Bubbles.)
Wily Form 1: Use Fire Storm
Wily Form 2: Use Thunder Beam/Rolling Cutter (Use NES pause glitch if you have a little health left.)

Note: There are no weapon names in the NES version.

Thank you. In that case, I'll do MegaMan 2/3 Robot Master weaknesses now:
MegaMan 2:
Air Man: Use Leaf Shield
Crash Man: Use Air Shooter
Flash Man: Use Crash Bomber
Quick Man: Use Time Stopper
Metal Man: Use Quick Boomerang
Bubble Man: Use Metal Blade
Heat Man: Use Bubble Lead
Wood Man: Use Automic Fire

Note: You can also use Metal Blade against Flash Man and Metal Man. Keep in mind that 1 Metal Blade can easily beat Metal Man. So stick with Quick Bommerang against Metal Man.

MegaMan 3:
Top Man Use Hard Knuckle
Shadow Man: Use Top Spin
Spark Man: Use Shadow Blade
Magnet Man: Use Spark Shock (Spark Shock sucks)
Hard Man: Use Magnet Missile
Snake Man: Use Needle Cannon
Gemini Man: Use Search Snake
Needle Man: Use Gemini Laser (Gemini Laser sucks)

I hope this helps, Mega Man players.

Mega Man 3 is not that hard for me. Look, I beat MM3 Dr Wily stages a bunch of times. Mega Man 3 Wily stages are really easy. Anyway, you can use Top Spin Against Turtles/Hard Knuckle Against Yellow Devil/Search Snake Against Clones/Spark Shock Against Wily 1/Rush Jet Against Wily 2/Shadow Blade Against Gamma 1/Top Spin/Search Snake Against Gamma 2 and you'll do fine. I use those a bunch of times. I hope this helps.:)

Sure. I'll do boss weaknesses for Mega Man 4-6 if I have time. In a mean time, I'm gonna make more mini guides for Monster Rancher 2.

Oh you mean Wily Stage 5 in MegaMan 3. Well, I use Spark Shock against the first form and I use Rush Jet against the second form. As for Wily Stage 5 in MegaMan 2, I use Automic Fire/Metal Blade against the first form and I use Crash Bomb/Arm Cannon (depend on my luck I have) against the second form. The first 3 MegaMan games was played on my Wii via Virtual Console. I hope this helps.

I swear the original Mega Man is impossible to beat. I literally tried for 3 hours yesterday, after beating all the robots, just to get past the Cyclops ass and couldn't do it. I've beat every mega man aside from 1 and 5, I'm so close to beating one, I can taste it. But I can't do it.
oh, and Mega Man 3 is by far my favorite.

I just finished playing and beating mega man 1. I found that for the cyclops man when your using electric beam, all you have to do is dodge all the rocks when he is first appearing and hit him when his eye opens. Then when he is transferring to the other side walk into him and hide behind him since the first two pieces he moves are the bottom of the back leg, giving you a save haven each time. that way when you get to the end of the fight he will have no hp and you will have enough to only survive 1 attack and will complete the stage.

p.s you have to make sure dodge every eye bullet thing he does ever.

p.p.s hope this helped

Mega-Man 2: One of the Wily bosses is weak to Atomic Fire. So I would advise sparing Atomic Fire and throwing Metal Blade to slice Wood Man the second time around. First time around, yes, Atomic Fire. Air Man is weak to Leaf Shield, but it does not save time that the Buster doesn't save. The buster is quicker per shot and can dodge the tornadoes. Air Man is quite a "blow-over." What's better than attaining "Item 2" after the 1st boss you beat?!
Linear order:
Air --> Crash --> Flash --> Quick --> Metal --> Bubble --> Heat --> Wood
Or alternately:
Air --> Crash, then (w/ buster) Metal --> Flash --> Quick, then (w/ Metal Blade) Bubble --> Heat --> Wood
Mega-Man 3: The same advantage to Top Man as to Air Man. Hard Knuckle doesn't save time, slow like it is. Snake Man's 2ndary weakness is Shadow Blade. He's not so hard that you need Needle Cannon. Spark Man's weak to Needle Cannon -- less effective per shot, but faster. Shadow Blade and Spark Shock are equally effective against Magnet Man.
Linear order:
Top --> Shadow --> Snake --> Gemini --> Needle --> Spark --> Magnet --> Hard.
Or alternately:
Top --> Shadow --> Needle --> Snake --> Gemini, then (w/ Shadow Blade/Needle Cannon) Spark --> Magnet --> Hard.
Revisiting: Darkbot versions of bosses from MM2.
Dark Air (Spark Shock)
Dark Crash (Hard Knuckle)
Dark Wood (Needle Cannon/Search Snake)
Dark Heat (Top Spin, lesser Shadow Blade)
Dark Flash (Needle Cannon/Gemini Laser)
Dark Bubble (Shadow Blade/Spark Shock)
Dark Metal (Magnet Missile)
Dark Quick (Gemini Laser/Search Snake)
Mega-Man 7:
Junk Man (Buster/Thunder Bolt)
Freeze Man (Junk Shield/Scorch Wheel)
Burst Man (Buster/Freeze Cracker/Scorch Wheel)
Cloud Man (Danger Wrap)
Slash Man (Freeze Cracker/Scorch Wheel)
Spring Man (Slash Claw)
Shade Man (Wild Coil)
Turbo Man (Noise Crush)
