It is recommended to destroy as many of the smaller cleaning robots as possible (with Wipey being the hardest to do so), to make it easier to avoid getting hit during the cyclone attack despite the limited movement during the attack (which can be made easier if using Speed Gear). Due to its movement abilities underwater and its brushes can occasionally block Mega Man's shots, using rapid-fire would be a good idea, as Cyclone W is not that easy to hit.
Cyclone W's weakness is Block Dropper and can easily be destroyed in two hits if hit directly by the attack while using Power Gear and can also bypass the protection its brushes are able to give from Mega Man's normal attacks. However, the Scramble Thunder is also effective while it swims sideways and waves the brushes, creating an opening for vertical shots to pass through.

- Cyclone W looks somewhat similar to Droppy, but with a much more mechanical appearance.
- Its name could be a reference to Kamen Rider W.
