Mega Man 5

Mega Man 5 for the NES “marks the first appearance of Beat, a bird robot that helps out Mega Man after the player collects eight parts of the name of the title.” Screw Attack takes a look back at this title after the break.

In the original release of the game, Nintendo Power magazine indicated that the Mega Buster is the best choice for every single Robot Master in the game. This would violate the precedent created and render all special weapons for this game absolutely useless.
