DATA BASE

TopWEAPONSHelp

This doesn’t list every weapon in the game, but I mention a few significant ones.

User: Marino
Appears In: MMXCM
 BEAM CHAKRAM
This three-hit weapon is very similar to Zero’s Rapier; it does a lot of damage because the individual hits stack up. Marino slashes twice with two ring-shaped weapons, then kicks the enemy for good measure before flipping back to her place.

User: X
Appears In: MMXCM
 GATLING BUSTER
An 8-hit rapid-fire gun. Each hit does relatively low damage, but eight hits can really add up. However, the miss rate is pretty high with this; usually, between 2-4 of the hits will miss, so using this weapon is a bit of a gamble. Axl can get an almost identical weapon as well.

User: Massimo
Appears In: MMXCM
 INTERCEPTOR
This weapon has a chance to knock an enemy out of his attack completely. Basically what this does is cancel that enemy’s turn, which in effect moves his icon further down in the rounds lineup.

User: Spider
Appears In: MMXCM
 JOKER
This weapon combines all of the abilities of Spider’s other weapons, and pulls one out randomly each time he attacks. Note that unlike his other weapons, you do not need to be at 75% WE to get the special effects. He will always get a special effect with each hit (though if he doesn’t defeat the enemy with that blow, it might not be obvious). On the other hand, it’s tougher to be strategic when you can never predict what card he will pull out. (“Good card, eh?”)

User: Cinnamon
Appears In: MMXCM
 KITTY GLOVES
Despite their relatively ridiculous appearance (like most of Cinnamon’s weapons), these do five hits and have a chance to lower just about every stat of her target. Believe it or not, Cinnamon surprisingly does good damage with these.

User: X
Appears In: MMXCM
 TURBO BUSTER
This is a relatively high-powered weapon, but on top of that, the more WE X has, the more damage it does. This is ultimately one of his most powerful weapons, and you can buy it from very early in the game...as long as you have the funds, of course.

User: Zero
Appears In: MMXCM
 Z RAPIER
This is a three-hit attack. Don’t be fooled by its relatively low power rating—these are some of the strongest swords in the game. The Z Rapier+ for example does around 1500 per hit...three times. Couple this with two Heat Hazes and you’ve got near 6000 damage—and that’s just a normal attack.

TopSUB WEAPONSHelp

This doesn’t list every sub weapon in the game, but I mention a few significant ones.

Appears In: MMXCM
 BAIT
At first glance this doesn’t seem very useful except as a way to focus attacks on your strongest character to make healing easier. However, with the right enemies, this can make your party near invincible. For example, couple a Reverse Water with Wolfoids—who only use Water-based attacks—then have that character use Bait...and you can start to see where this could be abused. You can also have Axl use Bait when in his Hyper Mode, if you don’t mind burning through a lot of Gain Hypers. Note that Bait will not prevent enemies from using attacks that hit your entire party—and the Bait doesn’t affect such attacks either.

Appears In: MMXCM
 CRYOGENIC
This weapon has a chance to freeze the target. Frozen characters can’t take any actions, so their icons drop entirely out of the lineup at the bottom of the screen. Any damage done to the frozen character will shatter the ice and free the character, but the damage of this first hit is usually elevated (critical hits are frequent). When the Cryogenic freezes an enemy, you may want to cancel the rest of your turn so that you won’t do any damage to him and free him. You can focus on the remaining enemies, then go back to toast the frozen one later.

Appears In: MMXCM
 ENERGY CAPTURE
The damage done by this sub weapon is returned to your character as gained health. Since sub weapons tend to do only 100-200 damage, this might not sound like much, but it can really add up over time.

Appears In: MMXCM
 HAWKEYE
The main use of this is to enable you to hit things which have very high dodge rates. However, Hawkeyes can also be useful for any melee-based character to enable him to hit air units more easily.

Appears In: MMXCM
 HEAT HAZE
Zero begins the game with one of these, and you can get others later on—for example, every time Zero leaves the party and then rejoins, he tends to come back with a few more. A Heat Haze makes a shadow of Zero which duplicates his attack for that round. This affects his main weapon only, not his sub weapons; also, the shadow will only do about 25% of the real Zero’s damage. Having said that, you can equip two Heat Hazes and get double this benefit. Also note that the Heat Haze duplicates all of Zero’s hits, if he has a multi-hit weapon equipped.

Appears In: MMXCM
 ITEM CAPTURE
When you use Analyze on an enemy, you will see up to two items listed under the “Steal” box. These items can only be obtained from the enemy by using an Item Capture on it. The Item Capture itself does no damage to the enemy.

Appears In: MMXCM
 POWER CHARGE
A Power Charge adds about 50% or more to your character’s main weapon attack for that round. You can use two of them for a double increase. Note, though, that a Power Charge affects only the first hit of a multi-hit attack, making it less than useful for most characters in the party aside from X and Massimo.

Appears In: MMXCM
 TRACTOR NET
This weapon has a chance to inflict the Bind status on the enemy, which is the primary reason you would want to use it. Note that Bind won’t affect the enemy’s upcoming turn (his next turn stays where it is in the lineup), but it will slow him down for subsequent turns until it wears off.

Appears In: MMXCM
 VITALITY MISSILE
Each missile does exactly 10% of your character’s current LE. Because most characters will only have 3000-4000 health by the end of the game, this is not really that much. However, unlike the Stamina Missile, the Vitality Missile fires two missiles, not just one, so you actually get twice that amount of damage. Having said that, sub weapons which do purely damage are not usually very useful late in the game; you’re better off going utility instead.

TopFORCE METALSHelp

This doesn’t list every item in the game, but I mention a few significant ones.

Appears In: MMXCM
 BLOCK ALL
Prevents all status ailments. Note that “DOA” (insta-kill) attacks are considered status ailments, so this will block those as well.

Appears In: MMXCM
 INFINITE RESIST
Prevents all stat loss attacks during battle. Not as useful as it might appear given its erosion, considering stat losses are temporary and rarely hinder you in battle.

Appears In: MMXCM
 REVERSE FIRE
The three “Reverse” items set your resistance to that element (Fire, Water, or Thunder) to “Absorb.” You’ve seen this on some enemies—this causes any attack of that type to restore health instead of damaging you. This can be (ab)used quite nicely against any enemy which uses mostly elemental attacks. Try coupling a Reverse item with a Bait sub weapon.

Warning: The paths are not too difficult if you are relatively leveled up or know what you are doing, but the last two in particular will give you a good workout unless you are already high in level. In particular, the last path is a trio of Belladonnas, which is a whole lot of work to go through for a really crappy reward. On the other hand, they aren’t as bad as Rafflesian, so at least there’s that.

TopCHARACTERSHelp

HP: ?AT: ?
Also Known As: Rockman X
Appears In: MMX1, MMX2, MMX3, MMX4, MMX5, MMX6, MMX7, MMX8, MMXI, MMXII, MMXCM, MHX
 MEGA MAN X
Commonly called simply “X,” this robot was built by Dr. Light for reasons unknown. He fights Mavericks to aid both humans and Reploids, but an inner hatred for violence prevents him from being as good of a Hunter as he could be.


HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMX1, MMX2, MMX3, MMX4, MMX5, MMX6, MMX7, MMX8, MMXI, MMXII, MMXCM, MHX
 ZERO
A skilled Maverick Hunter who lets nothing hold him back. After being destroyed and rebuilt, Zero fights with X and the other Hunters full time.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMX7, MMX8, MMXCM
 AXL
A cocky Reploid who can temporarily mimic the appearance and skills of other Reploids. He has some experience in battle but is still somewhat immature, like a kid.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 SPIDER
A bounty hunter who worked with Aile for a time. What drives him is a mystery.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 STEEL MASSIMO
The real Steel Massimo, a powerful warrior, was eventually defeated and destroyed. This Massimo has taken his armor and name in an attempt to pick up where the original left off. He has a heart of gold, even if he lacks the steel nerves that gave his namesake his name.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 MARINO
A thief by her own admission, this dexterous Reploid prides herself at getting in and out of tight situations and claiming the treasure for herself in the process.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 CINNAMON
Innocent of life in general, Cinnamon was created to host a Force Metal that is capable of healing other Reploids. Her ability makes her useful in war, though her creator wants her to have a life of peace.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 EPSILON
A rebel and instigator. What is this Reploid’s true goals? Why did he turn against his own kind, sparking a war of Reploid versus Reploid?

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 COLONEL REDIPS
This Reploid is a commander for the Maverick Hunters, not unlike Signas.

Appears In: MMXCM
 CHIEF R
R is the leader of the resistance force at New Hope.

Appears In: MMXCM
 PROFESSOR GAUDILE
A researcher who has been looking into Force Metal. He wants his discoveries to be used for peaceful things, not weapons of war.

Appears In: MMXCM
 NANA
This operator commands the computer for the resistance base, setting locations on the transporter and providing communications.

Appears In: MMXCM
 AILE
A resistance member who was once a partner of Spider’s back in their bounty hunter days. When Aile gives his life for the resistance, he unknowingly also provides the catalyst that brings Spider to X’s side.

TopBOSSESHelp
HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Water
Strong Against: Fire
Appears In: MMXCM
 BOTOS
Like some other bosses, Botos summons helpers. But his are two Q-bits, which, among other things, can heal Botos for 20,000 LE per round. For this reason you can’t afford to just leave them alone. Have everyone equipped with Ice weapons to do better damage against Botos.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 DR. PSYCHE
For the first part of the battle Psyche is largely a pushover. He summons Needle enemies, and will re-summon them if they are destroyed. So you can prevent him from doing much at all by simply destroying all of the needles repeatedly.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Thunder
Strong Against: Water
Appears In: MMXCM
 FERHAM
Her whip can do multiple hits on both a single and multiple targets. Also, I believe her Crimson Shade is basically a Heat Haze. You can knock her out of it with a strong enough blow; if you do, she will put it back during her next turn—which is a good way to get her to waste her turn. Note that Ferham is an air unit.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Varies
Absorbs: Varies
Appears In: MMXCM
 INCENTAS
Incentas changes elements every turn, not only altering what he is strong and weak against but also changing what kind of attack he performs. Resistance Force Metals are useful here. In particular, if you have any Reverse metals, use them here, because Incentas will heal that character one out of three times.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Water
Absorbs: Fire
Appears In: MMXCM
 MACH JENTRA
Jentra is normally an air unit, but he can be grounded by a powerful attack, and this turns him into a ground unit. However he recovers immediately upon his next turn. Also, Jentra uses Fire-based attacks and regenerates his buddies when you destroy them. The Preon Tank he summons has an attack that makes your characters weaker against Fire, which is interesting when in conjunction with this battle.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 MAD NAUTILUS
Nautilus has an extremely high dodge rate, and he counterattacks for some serious damage even when your attack misses. However, when he attacks using the rod on his machine (the game will say he’s charging the core), the panel lifts on his armor and he can be damaged like normal. The panel lowers again on Nautilus’s next turn.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Fire
Absorbs: Thunder
Appears In: MMXCM
 SCARFACE
Scarface will counter attacks that are repeated against him. In other words, alternate between using shot-based and melee (“combat”) attacks on him. This applies when using Action Triggers and Hyper Modes as well. Remember that Scarface is weak against Fire.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 SHADOW
Near the start of the battle, Shadow will begin charging up his cannon. If you can knock him down you will interrupt the charge. After that, he uses less dangerous attacks and is easier to defeat. Eventually Shadow will use Break Shield which boosts his power but leaves him more vulnerable to shot attacks.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Thunder
Absorbs: Water
Appears In: MMXCM
 SILVER HORN
Be sure to remove any Ice Missiles from anyone who has them before starting this boss fight, as they will be useless against Silver Horn. Also, Water guards help here. His Tidal Wave attack has a low hit rate; though it strikes the entire party, it tends to miss one or two people each time.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Fire
Absorbs: Thunder
Appears In: MMXCM
 WILD JANGO
As an early boss battle, of course Jango isn’t terribly difficult. His Lightning Rod attack hits for damage plus steals 10% speed and gives it to Jango. But your characters are fast enough that this shouldn’t be much of an issue. It helps too that he’s weak against Fire, which is the same type as X’s Hyper Mode.

TopENEMIESHelp

The enemies in this game are delightfully diverse, and most have some sort of “gimmick,” or special strategy that can be applied to them, which makes each one different in battle and more interesting to fight. All HP values are approximate.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 B BLADER
An enemy from the classic games which is fairly durable and summons Deerballs. You’ll want to take out the Blader first in most cases.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 BAT BONE
These flying bats from the classic X series are relatively weak, but when they are angered by the defeat of an ally, they increase in power.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 BATFIGHTER
You can often tell a lot about an enemy’s attacks based on what it drops. In this case, Batfighters drop Berserk Protections so that means they use something which causes Berserk (“Cracking” in this case). They can also drain health (and you can win this too, in the form of an Energy Capture).

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Thunder
Strong Against: Water
Appears In: MMXCM
 BIG MONKEY
A large and, given its size, a relatively durable robot. However, you can use Thunder weapons on them to good effect. These guys sometimes use speed-boosting items.

HP: ?AT: ?
Strong Against: Water
Appears In: MMXCM
 BIGBIT
Summoned by the Preon S Botos. About the most dangerous thing about this is it has Codebreaker.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 BLADEY
Cute little saw blades from the classic games. They have a pretty high dodge rate, but low LE. At least one of their attacks strikes the entire party.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Thunder
Absorbs: Water
Appears In: MMXCM
 BLOWFISH
Flying fish. Like most marine life, it is weak against Thunder.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 CANNON DRIVER
This thing begins each battle with a barrier which defends against both ranged and melee attacks. However, you can break the S or C barriers by using a respective attack—the attack which breaks the barrier won’t do much damage, but subsequent attacks of the same type will. The Cannon Driver replaces its C/S barrier on its next turn.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 DEERBALL
Deerballs regenerate about 950 health each round, so your best choice is to focus on the B Blader (which summons them). The Deerballs’ energy supply is cut off when the B Blader dies, so they stop regaining health.

HP: 2000AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 DEGRAVER
These guys hate the cold. In fact, they start the battle frozen. You get a free attack on them because of this, but the Degraver has a high chance of counterattacking, plus he gets angry afterward. So if you don’t want to wait for them to thaw out naturally, you might want to try to decide the battle with one blow. Another option is to thaw them yourself using a Warm-Up, then defend. They’ll leave the battle like the Preon Nurses. They don’t heal you for this, but they tend to drop Sub-Tank refills as a result. (Thanks to GeneralShenX.)

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 DOBER MAN
Dober Men have SOS, where they call more of their own kind. If you want, you can use this as a way to gain extra Zenny or experience by beating each one down to low health, letting it call a backup, then finishing it off with Spider’s or Marino’s weapons that increase Zenny or experience. Rinse, repeat. You can keep this up with almost no damage to any of your characters as long as the Dober Men remain cooperative, since SOS uses up their turn.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 D-REX
A beefed up version of the D-Shark. Like its weaker cousin, this thing is very durable, particularly against ranged attacks.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Thunder
Strong Against: Water
Appears In: MMXCM
 D-SHARK
These guys are highly durable, though their most irritating thing is their Mini Shark attack. If you hit one of them with a melee strike, you will get a message saying that its jaw is broken, but that won’t stop it from using its Mini Shark attack (though it does seem to reduce the number of sharks that come out—and thus, the damage).

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 EINHAMMER
A relatively strong foe who uses Break Shield on the defeat of an ally. His two chain maces will pack quite a punch after this.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Water
Absorbs: Fire
Strong Against: Thunder
Appears In: MMXCM
 FIRE GLOB
The fire elementals of this game. As might be expected, they are strong against Fire and weak against Water. If you hit a Fire Glob with a Fire-based weapon, its attack power increases, but so does the experience it rewards when you win the battle (assuming the Glob doesn’t run away, which is just as likely). As might be expected, Fire Globs do Fire-based damage. All Globs regenerate some lost health each turn.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 GIFT BOX
These change what items they can drop each turn, but they tend to run away a lot. They have relatively low LE, but very high dodge rates. If you want to kill them on demand, you’d best equip a Hawkeye. But even then, the drop is not a guaranteed thing.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 GOLD BLADER
You can win Item Captures from these which you need to FMG several items. You can also earn good money off them if you let them use Breed Gold first before you kill them. Just kill them quickly after that or they tend to run away.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Melee
Appears In: MMXCM
 GOLD METTAUR
The gold Mettaur is very much like the silver one. It also flees a lot. Like most Mets, you can knock it over with a melee hit, making it vulnerable to shot attacks until its next turn. Gold Mettaurs drop quite a bit of Zenny.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Water
Absorbs: Fire
Appears In: MMXCM
 GULPFAST
A large flying fish; incongruously, this is a Fire-based robot. (A fish that is weak against Water—now I’ve seen everything.)

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Thunder
Absorbs: Water
Appears In: MMXCM
 GUN BIT
White and blue versions of the Rabbids. They are capable of freezing you with their cryogenic attack. Otherwise they behave very much like a Rabbid.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 KILLER MANTIS
You can get one shot-based attack in on this thing before it starts guarding against such attacks. While it is guarding, not only will shot-based attacks do less than half their usual damage, but there is also a chance the mantis will counterattack. However, it stops guarding when its turn comes around.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Thunder
Strong Against: Water
Appears In: MMXCM
 LIQUID GLOB
In liquid form, this elemental has high defense. The game will tell you it is because its body is “absorbing the shock.” So freeze it with any Ice-based weapon or sub weapon. Not only will the Glob be unable to move (until the ice shatters), but subsequent characters that attack the Glob will do better damage.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Water
Absorbs: Fire
Appears In: MMXCM
 MEGA MANTOR
This durable robot wears down with multiple hits. Also, you can prevent it from using its Flame Ray attack if you hit it with an Ice/Water weapon.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 MEGA TORTOISE
The Mega Tortoise opens every battle by poisoning and blinding the entire party (the only two status ailments that don’t wear off after battle, stupidly enough), so if you have a chance, it’s a good idea to defend for the first round of such battles.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 MELTDOWN
These explode for 9999 damage on your entire party after three rounds. A Meltdown has an insane amount of LE, and if you can’t beat it down before it self-destructs, the only chance you have of surviving the explosion is to use Spider/Axl’s Hyper Mode. Otherwise, you’ll have to hope you can run away.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Melee
Appears In: MMXCM
 METTAUR COMMANDER
These guys use Virus a lot which can be irritating, particularly when they get a good shot off on your entire party. Otherwise they behave much like other Mettaurs.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Melee
Appears In: MMXCM
 METTAUR COUNTER
These shift stances according to what you hit them with. For example, using a shot-based attack on one will cause it to duck down into an anti-S stance. When they are in such a stance, they have a high chance of counterattacking attacks of the type they are guarding against.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Melee
Appears In: MMXCM
 METTAUR
The classic Met enemy with a new look. If a Met is jumping up an down, it can be damaged pretty well with shot attacks, but if it is hiding under its helmet, you will definitely want to go close combat. Melee attacks work well in either case.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Melee
Appears In: MMXCM
 METTAURCURE
Yep, the healer for the Mets. This one isn’t as fun as the Preon Nurse, but it does its job. Aside from healing its allies, it can also attack.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 NEEDLES
Dr. Psyche summons these during his boss battle. I forget what they do because I always kill them off immediately. I’ll have to go back and check.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 PARAROID
Pararoids have an insane dodge rate. Also, because they are air units, melee attackers will have an even more difficult time dealing with them. Your best bet is to use a Hawkeye. Or you can wait for the Pararoid to use Parasite which will destroy the Pararoid in the process. If all else fails, just hit the Pararoids with everything you’ve got—they have low enough LE that even a sub weapon or two is often enough to finish them.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Fire
Absorbs: Thunder
Appears In: MMXCM
 PLASMA GLOB
These guys use a lot of Thunder-based attacks which of course means lots of Bind. If you hit them with Thunder weapons, you restore some of their health and increase their attack power, but you’ll gain more FME after the battle.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 PREON BITMASTER
One of the first enemies you will encounter which summons helpers. You can either destroy the bits as it summons them (thus causing it to waste turns summoning more), or ignore them and take out the Bitmaster first.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 PREON CHASER
The first of the Preon series of robots, which are like the Joes of this game. This particular Preon has a stun gun that can temporarily Bind you (lowers your speed).

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 PREON DOC
Sort of an upgraded version of the Preon Nurse. The docs don’t surrender though, sadly. This is because, unlike the nurses, the docs can actually attack.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 PREON ELITE
Elites order other Preons around, and block sometimes with their shields. It can also couple Riot with its “Order” to give your party members commands as well!

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 PREON GUNNER (2)
There seem to be two of these, though the game names them the same thing. This is a more durable variation that has Riot.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 PREON GUNNER
This Preon attacks with a machine gun which can inflict multiple hits, or strike your entire party. Although there is nothing terribly fancy about its normal attacks, it does have a special move which has a chance of inflicting Bind on your entire party.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 PREON NURSE
These Preons heal and boost the stats of their allies. While normally you would want to focus on the healers in a particular battle and take them out first, in this case, if you leave the Nurse alone and destroy all of the other enemies on the battle field instead, the Preon Nurse will surrender in its next turn and heal your entire party. After that, defend until the Preon Nurse’s next turn, and it will leave the battle with a “Thanks.” This is a convenient way to regain the health of your party for free.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Thunder
Strong Against: Water
Appears In: MMXCM
 PREON POD
Ice-based robots which use a freeze shot if you give them time to charge up to it. Each Preon Pod opens the battle preparing its freeze shot attack. Hit it with a blow that knocks it over before its next turn to interrupt the shot. (Or just destroy it outright.)

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Thunder
Strong Against: Water
Appears In: MMXCM
 PREON PRESSURE
Very similar to the Preon Pod except this one uses a hyper gravity weapon. This attack strikes your entire party, but almost always misses. When it does work, it seems to do about half of the target’s LE in damage. Either way, you can interrupt this shot in the same way as with the Preon Pods.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Water
Strong Against: Fire
Appears In: MMXCM
 PREON S BOTOS
These guys use Bit Shift, gaining helpers in the form of Bigbits. Other than this, they use Mega Fire occasionally. They also defend a lot, for some reason.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 PREON S EPSILON
A sword-wielding Preon who has Codebreaker, which is probably its most threatening attack.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 PREON S FACE
These guys “charge” for one round (when they are “taunting you”). The more damage you do to them, the more damage they will inflict in the next round when they attack. Of course, destroying them flat out is preferable. What you don’t want to do is get two or more of them low in health without finishing them off before their next turn. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Thunder
Strong Against: Water
Appears In: MMXCM
 PREON S FERHAM
They can inflict multiple hits with their sabers, and sometimes block hits.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Melee

 PREON SHIELDER
This robot uses a glowing blue shield a lot. While it has its shield up, it is weak against melee attacks and strong against shot attacks. Also, shot-based attacks will net you a counterattack. You can negate the shield by hitting it with a melee attack. If the Preon still has its shield when its next turn comes around, it will shoot it at one of your party members.

HP: ?AT: ?

 PREON SOLDIER
These guys don’t look it, but they have pretty good defense and seem to parry a lot of blows. They can also heal themselves, though they don’t do it very often.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Fire
Strong Against: Thunder
Appears In: MMXCM
 PREON SPARK
Thunder-based Preons, as their name might make you guess. Their attacks are Thunder-based and have a chance of inflicting Bind on you.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Fire
Appears In: MMXCM
 PREON TANK
This guy has an interesting attack which temporarily lowers your resistance against Fire. The Preon also happens to be weak against Fire itself. You can win its Oil Can for your own use; amusingly, this will even reverse someone who normally absorbs Fire and make them vulnerable to it again.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 Q-BIT
Botos summons these. They use Mega Fire a lot, Death Gravity, and can heal their allies. Really, it’s the healing part that’s the most annoying.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 RABBID
They’re small and cute, and they have SOS. Because of this, and because the battle field can fit up to four of them at a time (unlike with some other enemies), these guys are mostly good for Final Strike fodder.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 RADAR KILLER
A durable robot which can use a three-laser attack to strike your entire party at once. Sometimes he uses a targeting mechanism, which really just tells you who he is going to attack next and wastes his turn.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Fire
Appears In: MMXCM
 RED STINGER
Flying humanoid insects which can hit your entire party with one big slash.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 REDIPS GUARD
Relatively small humanoid guards with funny sound effects. They sound more like insects than humans. They can dish out a fair amount of damage.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 RUSH LOADER
Very much like the Roaders from the classic series. These attack by charging you. They get bigger and more powerful each time one of their allies is killed.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Melee
Appears In: MMXCM
 SILVER METTAUR
This Met begins the battle hiding under its helmet, so you will need to use melee-based attacks on it. As you attack it, its body “wears down.” I think this means it drops less Zenny after the battle, but I’m not sure. Silver Mettaurs run away a lot.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 SINEDROPPER
Like the other enemies of this design, this guy has a fairly good dodge rate. Sometimes he will fly over and drop his bomb on one of your characters. This has the potential to Virus you.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Water
Absorbs: Fire
Appears In: MMXCM
 SUPER TRIPUFFER
These guys absorb Fire, and will even sometimes use Mega Fire on themselves to recover their health.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 TRICLAW KILLER
A stronger version of the Radar Killer.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Thunder
Absorbs: Water
Appears In: MMXCM
 TRIPUFFER
Little flying fish. Tripuffers can lower your shields, but aren’t overly dangerous.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 WILD PATROL DOG
Cute little robot dogs. Not terribly dangerous.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 WILD RESCUE DOG
Well, they aren’t there to rescue you, that’s for sure. These are tougher versions of the patrol dogs.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 WILDDOG
These things are durable and can dish out some decent damage, but their most dangerous aspect is their multiple methods of causing your characters to go berserk. If you are fighting a lot of them, you may want to consider some berserk protection.

HP: ?AT: ?
Weakness: Thunder
Strong Against: Water
Appears In: MMXCM
 WOLFLOID
You’ll recognize these guys as the ice cousins of the ones in the desert. They’re strong against Water and do Water-based damage. They sometimes get angry when one of their allies is defeated.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 ZENNYDROPPER
A flying enemy with a high dodge rate. The amount of Zenny it will drop after battle increases with every turn it takes, but it also has a high chance of simply running away, leaving you with nothing.

HP: ?AT: ?
Appears In: MMXCM
 ZWEI HAMMER
Similar to the Einhammer but uses Break Shield only when it is alone. It too uses a variation of a Power Charge which appears to last more than just the turn in which it uses it (since it can’t take any other action that round).
