This is Bisqwit's new tool-assisted Rockman timeattack.
(Mega Man was originally known as Rockman in Japan.)

It is 1 minute and 23 seconds faster than the previous Rockman movie by the same author.

This movie abuses the minor glitches of the Rockman physics more than ever before. And this is an understatement. Many new techniques were discovered during the making of this movie. Even the route changed completely. Watch it...

There are countless difficult tricks and techniques involved, most of which have been added to the Rockman Tricks collection page.

Some interesting pieces of information:

  • The making of this movie took 8 months - most of which was spent planning how to play the Bombman stage.
  • Certain small parts of this movie have been played by a robot (approximately 8 seconds in total).
  • The ROM of the game was disassembled to find out how to manipulate the bonus drops.
  • When more than 50% of this movie was completed, this movie was constantly in state of being made obsolete. New strategies were continuously found for already-played levels. Therefore, most levels have been completely done over at least 3 times. For this, copypasting was invaluable.
