Sub-boss: Giant Suzy[edit]

Giant Suzy's room

Weak against the Spark Shock. The more damage it suffers, the faster it gets.

It drops a large E-capsule when defeated.

Stage walkthrough, part 2[edit]

In this part of the stage, feel free to use the Spark Shock, too.

Item list:

  • 2 small E-capsules

Three more enemies appear in the second part of the stage:

  • Garyoby: immune to most weapons, but weak against the Dust Crusher.
  • Jumbig: stun it with the Spark Shock, then finish it off with another weapon.
  • Boulder: the best protection against this falling obstacle is the Skull Barrier.

Boss: Dr. Wily[edit]

The Wily Machine

Wily Machine[edit]

The Wily Machine is only vulnerable to the fully-charged Mega Buster. Hit it in the eyes and slide under it.

Dr. Wily

Dr. Wily is only vulnerable to the Screw Crusher. Unfortunately, the cannonballs deflect it. Dodge the cannonballs and shoot the cockpit between them.
