When Dr. Wily escapes from prison, Dr. Light is forced to send Rock, AKA Megaman back out on the warpath.

When we first see Dr. Wily's castle, his saucer flies toward the castle, and we hear the appropriate "saucer beep" sound effects. But in the subsequent exterior shots of the castle, we still hear the saucer noise, even though the saucer is nowhere to be seen. See more »

Crazy Credits

SPOILER: The ending features Mega Man defeating the Wily Alien, uncovering that it was just a projection all along. Wily gets on the floor and begs, like always. Mega Man is then shown walking home, with the four seasons passing. He then runs home, leaving his helmet on a hill. The credits roll follows. See more »
