Mega Man XZ: The Maverick Hunters


Mega Man 5

The worst thing has happened... Dr Light has been kidnapped, and the culprit appears to be Protoman, Mega Man's robotic brother. He also created eight Robot Masters to prevent Mega Man from rescuing Dr Light, but this time Mega Man will gain additional help from Beat, a flying bird-robot once you find all the special MEGAMANV symbols hidden throughout the game. It's hard to believe Protoman capable of commiting this crime, but is it really him? Below you'll find a boss chart, weapons, special items and Rush ability descriptions, as well as the location of all the special Beat symbols and the final passcode.

Intro Scene...
In the year 20XX AD... A vicious army of robots is bent on destroying the world!! And behind this destruction is... Protoman!?

Beat/MEGAMAN V symbols

Once you find all of the eight symbols hidden throughout the stages, you can use Beat as a special item. He will fly around Mega Man and attack any enemy you come across.
M In Gravity Man's stage, at about the midpoint of the stage, you should see the M floating within one of the gravity-switching panels.
E In Wave Man's stage, after you defeat the large robot while riding in the jet-ski, eventually as you continue on you should see the symbol above the water. Jump up to reach it.
G In Stone Man's stage, after passing the first two ladders, once you reach the third one, shoot the wall in front of it and slide through to find a hidden room with the symbol.
A In Gyro Man's stage, at the area with the green blocks that fall once you step on them, you should see the symbol under one of the platforms. To get it, stand on the block above it and as soon as the block falls and you grab it, jump up to the platform and continue on before you fall in the hole.
M In Star Man's stage, once inside the building, you should eventually see the symbol just below some spikes in the ceiling. Jump up to reach it.
A In Charge Man's stage, once inside the train you should eventually see the symbol in front of one of the windows of the train. Use the Rush Coil to reach it.
N In Napalm Man's stage, just before the second area underground, before the drop you should the the symbol sitting on a ledge. As you drop down hold left to reach it.
V In Crystal Man's stage, at the area with the long drop and the spikes you have to avoid, after falling down the first screen with spikes, hold left as you fall and on the next screen you'll see the symbol floating in mid-air. Keep holding left to fall into it.
