Author's comments and explanations:

Warning, this submission text contains vulgar language and some rude humor. Read it with your mom and discuss afterwards.

Mega Man Five is a special game becase Mega Man has the ability to fly.

  • Used FCEUX 2.2.1 (TAS Editor)
  • Manipulates luck a little bit
  • Contains entertainment/speed trade offs (yet still manages to beat Baxter's run, i don't get it)
  • Uses glitches

Things that are the devil

  • No sliding unless it's required. The Wave Man autoscroller is an exception because sliding doesn't matter there.
  • No riding the Super Arrow (using it as a weapon is OK because destroying devil-made things is good)
  • No taking damage because Mega Man is a man, not an ovarian cancer survivor.

Level Comments


I managed to save a frame over GlitchMan. Weird.

Star Man

Low gravity? Try flying, bitch. Star Man dies quicker than the passengers on the Space Shuttler Challenger. No really. I timed it.

Gravity Man

Poor, poor, Gravity Man. He loses his one niche in the boss battle, which is being able to avoid Mega Man. Now Mega Man is all up in Gravity Man's asshole and Gravity Man can't do anything about it. Woot

Gyro Man

Gyro Man doesn't really have an advantage over Mega Man anyway because Gravity Hold hits everywhere. Gyro Man is a pussbucket.

Crystal Man

Crystal Man's level has dropping crystals. Mega Man flies over every one of them. Crystal is a girl's name. Crystal Man makes no sense.

Napalm Man

The Crystal Eye is a really crappy weapon so fighting Napalm Man is annoying. Not because of Napalm Man, he's a wimp.

Stone Man

Stone Man must really be Stoned, Man because he's jumping around like Barney the Dinosaur. Mega Man doesn't have the time for stupid children's programming so he stuffs some Napalm Bombs in Stone Man's vagina. Bam.

Charge Man

Like Napalm Man, Charge Man's weakness is crappy so fighting him's a bit difficult. But we still defeat him without damage. BITCH.

Wave Man

Since sliding is banned, so is the Charge Kick. We mow down Wave Man with our good old Mega Buster.

Proto Man 1

We fight Liam Neeson as Darkman 1 and he's easy.

Proto Man 2

We fight Arnold Vosloo as Darkman 2: The Return of Durant and he's easy too.

Proto Man 3

Arnold Vosloo as Darkman 3: Die Darkman Die returns. He's easy too.

Proto Man 4

There wasn't a Darkman 4, so this battle never happened.

Wily 1

Wily is up to his old tricks. Because the boss doesn't open his eyes because he doesn't like a face full of Crystal Eye unless you hit his platforms, he's not as slick as we would've hoped.

Wily 2

I switch the Gyro Attack to restore some energy for the loser boss. Mega Man doesn't have time to play shenanigans.

Wily 3

Same as before, except we can't get instantly close to the boss, so that loses time, and we defeat Star Man with some Water Wave. I use the Mega Buster on Wave Man still, and Gravity Man now gets a buttload of charged shots to save Star Crash for the Wily Press. Bitch.

Oh yeah, the Wily Press dies too.

Wily 4

Do I really need to say what happens? Of course not. Mega Man wins the day.

The End

The end credits roll.

Pharaoh Man

wait what

Guts Man

wat r u doing


mega man fife

Splush W0man


adelikat Man

Adelikat upgrades the Robot Masters to BizHawk so they get deprecated. Since goofydylan votes no because of some shitty Chuck Rock game, the run finally ends.

Thanks to

  • Porn for his shitty testrun
  • TASVideos for being a waste of time
  • Me
  • Boners

P.S.: I love you all.

P.M.S: This submission text should not be taken seriously. You shouldn't have even read it.

BTW, in case you were wondering, this is an actual legit run that does complete Megaman V Fly by Matrixz.
