Rockman & Forte (ロックマン&フォルテ), known as Mega Man & Bass in the western world, used to be the last game chronologically released for the original Rockman/Megaman series, until Rockman & Forte Mirai kara no Chōsensha (ロックマン&フォルテ 未来からの挑戦者) was released on the WonderSwan handheld system. This game bears a striking resemblance to Mega Man 8, not only in style, but in excessive graphic detail.

Similarly to Mega Man X4, the player has the option to choose one of two characters to play through. In this run, Forte is chosen.

FractalFusion takes apart the game with some glitches that allow Forte to zip around in walls. This run is 5:23 faster than the previous run, mostly due to an item called Counter Attacker (Cost Attack in Mega Man & Bass GBA) that allows more damage to a boss if Forte is low on health. This also explains why Forte takes much damage throughout the run. Read the author's comments for more details.

Note: This movie contains a death. It is intentional, and saves time.

There are two more Rockman & Forte runs to watch on this site. There is a run that completes the game as Rockman, and there is a run that collects all 100 CDs as Rockman.
