Mega Man Zero 2/EX Skills
Zero gains an EX Skill from a boss if his rank is at least A when he defeats it. Keep in mind, it's his rank upon beginning the mission that counts, not the rank he gets at the end of the mission (which counts for the next boss). These can be equipped and unequipped from the subscreen.
Note: The sprites for certain EX Skills in the listings have been given a blue backdrop to make them easier to contrast against the white backdrop of this page.
 Buster Skills
 Laser Shot
- Obtained from: Hyleg Ourobockle
When no element chip is equipped, Zero's charged buster shot becomes a laser that can penetrate enemy defenses.
 Triple Shot
- Obtained from: Poler Kamrous
When the Ice chip is equipped, Zero's charged buster shot splits into three ice shots upon contact with an enemy.
 Spark Shot
- Obtained from: Panter Flauclaws
When the Thunder chip is equipped, Zero's charged buster shot splits into two electric shots that travel up and down upon contact with an enemy.
 Blast Shot
- Obtained from: Fighting Fefnir
When the Flame chip is equipped, Zero's charged buster shot explodes and does more damage upon contact with an enemy.
 Saber Skills
 Tenshouzan: Heaven Rising Slash
- Obtained from: Phoenix Magnion
 Sengatotsu: Spinning Fang Thrust
- Obtained from: Kuwagust Anchus
Press Saber while dashing. Zero thrusts the Saber forward. If the Thunder chip is equipped, the attack becomes a Thunder element and turns into a sharper, electrified blade.
 Sharp Edge
- Obtained from: Fairy Leviathan
 Kougenjin: Mirage Blade
- Obtained from: Sage Harpuia
 Chain Rod Skills
 Energy Chain
- Obtained from: Burble Hekelot
Latch onto an enemy with the Chain Rod and just hold on. After a few seconds, Zero starts leeching away the enemy's HP to restore his own. If Zero's HP is full, this will fill his Sub Tanks. It absorbs HP one point at time.
 Shield Skills
 Filter Shield
- Obtained from: Rainbow Devil MK2
Activate the Shield Boomerang just before an enemy shot hits, and it turns the shot into an E-Crystal. By rapidly tapping the button in front of an enemy that fires multiple shots, like a Pantheon Gunner, it can be used to mine E-Crystals quickly.
