Capcom decided to make some easy money, so they recycled parts of Mega Man X5, threw in overly difficult trial-and-error gameplay, made almost everything an obstacle course, and called it Mega Man X6.

Rescuing all Reploids on Xtreme mode is inadvisable for all but the most hardcore, yet this TAS makes it look easy. Not only that, it collects everything that can be collected before beating the game.

In this run, Rolanmen1 uses additional items and tricks that are not present in the any% or all stages runs, such as X's Blade Armor. Though X still has less screentime than Zero, he is used to his fullest potential in the Gate stages.

In this run, Rolanmen1 shows off X's max potential, getting every collectible in the whole game, while Zero watches from the side and enjoys the show.


The author has provided an extra encode with item collection display and a special upscaling filter that reduces pixelization (nnedi3).

Capcom decided to make some easy money, so they recycled parts of Mega Man X5, threw in overly difficult trial-and-error gameplay, made almost everything an obstacle course, and called it Mega Man X6.

This run by Rolanmen1 and FractalFusion plays on the hardest difficulty, Xtreme, and uses both X and Zero. The physics of Zero's sword make it the ideal boss killer, however some bosses have unavoidable invincibility periods, so X is sometimes used to attack during these periods. Some new tricks like duck dashing and saber climbing help save 19 seconds over the previous movie.

If you want to see a run that plays through all of the stages, see this run.

X is trying to find the lost Maverick Hunter Zero, who has gone missing since X5. Of course, once found, Zero does most of the dirty work, while X is practically nowhere to be found.

This run completes all of the stages, showing off how nasty every level is on Xtreme difficulty. As always, Zero is much better suited to killing bosses than X. Zero also uses powerups that he wouldn't be able to use in an any% run.

The author, Rolanmen1, also improves the previous movie by 1:47.03 by taking a different route and using a new trick that allows him to skip the totem poles in Ground Scaravich's stage.

If you want to see the game completed as fast as possible, see the any% run.


Note: There are encodes of higher resolution in the discussion thread.

Capcom decided to make some easy money, so they recycled parts of Mega Man X5, threw in overly difficult trial-and-error gameplay, made almost everything an obstacle course, and called it Mega Man X6.

This run uses both X and Zero. Zero's sword physics makes it the ideal boss killer but some bosses have unavoidable invincibility periods, which is why X is sometimes used. The run also obtains a weapon which is more beneficial to X than to Zero. Zero cannot be obtained right away, but must be obtained by beating a certain boss.

The run uses the hardest difficulty level, Xtreme, which would be more appropriately called insane.

For a run that plays through all stages, see [1516] PSX Mega Man X6 (USA) "all stages" by Mothrayas in 41:18.38.

Rockman The EXE played Rockman X6 "Any% JP" TAS in 34:57.20.

Aims:

  • Hardest difficulty.
  • Aims for fastest time. (not much)
  • Takes damage to save time. (But don't overdo in Extreme Mode cuz emeny don't drop health)
  • Manipulates luck. (not much)

About The Game: This game is Rockman game which was rushed (Because of Capcom ran out of money), with untranslated voices and bad translation, include glitches in *English version. Some bosses were poorly designed and look like a mess as well. Some stages are also poorly designed, being impossible to pass with the wrong armor or character, or structure randomization. The difficulty of the game is very hard, even on Normal. Things exist just to kill you, that's for sure. Not to mention that Xtreme mode turns entire stages into enemy soup.

About The Run: There are 3 ways to reach the fortress stages:

  • Beat all 8 Mavericks. (Only for TAS "All Stages" or "100%")
  • Beat High Max in a secondary area. (Beat Nightmare Zero to unlocked High Max)
  • Obtain 3000 Nightmare Souls. (The same

The second method is fastest, but requires beating a Maverick, since High Max requires a special weapon in order to be damaged. Along the way, the run obtains Zero.

This is the route used:

  • Intro Stage (X)
  • Commander Yammark (X, Need Yammar Option to speed up Mijinion Stage)
  • Infinity Mijinion (X) (Secondary Area)
  • Infinity Mijinion (X) (Secondary Area)
  • Gate's Lab 1 (Zero, Without the Blame Armor can't pass the wall with stripes only Double Jumps can passed)
  • Gate's Lab 2 (X, Only X can changed Special Weapon)
  • Sigma (Zero)

Weapons, mechanics, and other stuff: Yammar Option is a useful weapon, as it gives Zero a ranged attack. Furthermore, X can easily hit enemies with the charged attack, and by wobbling so that the fireflies go in and out of the target, it hits the enemy repeatedly, assuming no invincibility period.

Contact is strange in this game. Apparently an attack only makes contact if no other attacks are in it (hence the need to wobble with Yammar Option). This is also related to the main SDC method in this run, which does 2 damage every 5 frames.

As in all other PSX Rockman games, X can use both a special weapon and X-Buster at the same time.

Duck dashing and saber climbing are tricks that saved time during the run. Saber climbing, which X can only use, eliminates X's recoil from the wall when jumping.

Final Stats:

  • Nightmare Souls obtained: 0 (this has to be wrong, actually it only count souls from bosses)

  • Reploids rescued: 7

  • Clear time: 17:58 (Cuz Gate and High Max wasting my time)

  • X Rank: C

  • Zero Rank: D

  • Note:
  • Because of both company also was rushed, the glitches in the game was never fix in the English Verion. So there no reason why I should play the English or Japanese version, but since the audio are Japanese so I decided to play the JP Version.
  • This run is just for testing so sorry for my horrible run, I'll do a new one A.S.A.P

Info Download

The purpose of this page is to document all known tricks and other interesting information of the PSX Mega Man X games. These include Mega Man X4, Mega Man X5, and Mega Man X6.

Tricks

SDC (Slash Dash Cancel)

This is the trick that makes Zero superior to X in most stages. It destroys most bosses incredibly quickly, and also works well on regular enemies if necessary.

This trick is performed by pressing the attack button to slash on the ground, then dash to cancel the slash animation. The dash can be cancelled by another slash, so slash again as soon as possible. The first two hits of Zero's triple slash do not trigger invincibility on bosses, so every slash will cause damage.

Turnaround SDC (X6)

Zero's sword physics have changed in X6, making this trick possible. First, be as close to the opponent as possible, and have your back faced towards him. Then slash, and when the slash hits, turn around towards the boss. This will instantly make you start the second slash of the three hit combo. Then press dash and the other direction, so you face away from him again. Slash again, and repeat.

Guard Shell trick (X6)

When Zero has his Guard Shell (Shieldner Sheldon's weapon) out, slashing will make his Saber hit multiple times for each slash. This is a valuable asset in unassisted runs, but selecting Guard Shell is generally too slow for a TAS.

Boss information

Bosses with abnormal invincibility

Usually, bosses have 60 (X4) or 30 (X5, X6) frames of invincibility after getting hit from attacks other than Zero's first or second slash, or attacks they don't take damage from. But some exceptions exist:

  • Magma Dragoon (X4): Has only 30 frames of invincibility after each hit, rather than 60 frames like all other bosses from this game.
  • Web Spider (X4): Gains invincibility after getting hit by Zero's first and second slash.
  • Cyber Peacock (X4): Gains invincibility after getting hit by Zero's first and second slash.
  • Frost Walrus (X4): Gains invincibility after getting hit by Zero's first and second slash.
  • Blaze Heatnix (X6): When hit, regardless of which attack, will always trigger a "stunned" state, stopping his attack and giving him a long period of invincibility. This only doesn't happen when he does certain attacks. During these attacks, he has normal invincibility when attacked.
  • Infinity Mijinion (X6): When hit by a saber (either by X or by Zero), he'll always trigger a "stunned" state and gain invincibility.

Z-Saber regular Air Slash vs. Kuuenzan (X4)

Defeating Split Mushroom as Zero gains you Kuuenzan, which replaces Zero's air slash. However, Kuuenzan isn't always better against certain bosses.

Bosses against whom regular Air Slash is better

The following bosses take 3 damage from Air Slash, but 2 from Kuuenzan:

  • Split Mushroom
  • Cyber Peacock

Bosses against whom Kuuenzan is better

The following bosses take 2 damage from Air Slash, but 3 from Kuuenzan:

  • Web Spider
  • Frost Walrus

The following bosses take 1 damage from Air Slash, but 2 from Kuuenzan:

  • Magma Dragoon
  • Slash Beast

Bosses for whom this doesn't matter:

The following bosses take 2 damage from both Air Slash and Kuuenzan:

  • Storm Owl
  • Jet Stingray
