Pacifist Runs of Classic Mega Man games
« on: May 09, 2009, 03:33:23 PM »
In an attempt to do something different, I've worked on some pacifist runs of Mega Man games.

Mega Man 1:

Mega Man 2:

Mega Man 3:

(MM3 was my first one and I decided halfway in to switch commentary so try not to complain about it.)

The hardest one was Mega Man 5, although Mega Man & Bass is currently giving it a good run. Easiest one was Mega Man 2 or 7. It's really fun to do and makes you think about Mega Man games differently (especially the level design). It also gave me new appreciation for Mega Man 4 as a game (that was was the most entertaining). If anyone has any questions about them or advice for trying similar runs, let me know.

Note: Also, please note that these aren't perfect runs. I'm not the best player in the world and these aren't designed to get the minimal amount of hits. Pacifist Runs are runs where the fewest amount of enemies are killed. Usually this is narrowed to bosses and mini-bosses but there are times exceptions must be made to progress in the game.

Mega Man & Bass Run (As Mega Man):

I don't have the capability to record Mega Man 8 or 9 yet so I'm looking for something new to work on. I could do a Pacifist Run of X2 and X3 but I'd like to work on some other challenge as well.

I especially like doing challenges that aren't on youtube yet. Anyone have ideas?

On MM8, I decided to take on the Tengu Man challenge of not killing the miniboss's minions.

It wasn't all that hard (disclaimer: I had a lot of practice on speed running MM8 and I've been practicing for a Super R-Type run, and both helped GREATLY for this):

The secret is that the cannon is weak to the Mega Ball.  You wouldn't have needed Beat had you just played more with the special weapons. :\

Yea, it woulda been wise to mess around more with the weapons. I'll go ahead and make another video to fix my mistake with Tengu Man. Besides, I played like a COMPLETE idiot against Tengu himself so it'll be good to get my revenge.

If you're looking for another challenge, you can try to beat Airman's stage as a pacifist without using E-tanks. I was able to get it so that I only use 1.... but I couldn't even get that on Camera.

Still, kudos.

To anyone whose knowledgable, I got a question.

I'm looking to do X6 as a pacifist (Not looking forward to it) but I'm having trouble figuring out my path. I know I can get to the gate levels early by taking out High Max. However, there are apparenly necessary parts and or armors that I would need to get.

So, how could I beat X6 with the fewest amount of kills (including Maverick investigators and Nightmares)?
