Mega Man V, known in Japan as Rockman World 5 (ロックマンワールド５), is the last game from the Mega Man classic series for Game Boy. The game has Super Game Boy support, and at one time was considered for a port to the Game Boy Color for Q4 1998, but the project was eventually abandoned.
Japan: July 22, 1994
North America: September 10, 1994
In the year 20XX AD, the world is at peace thanks to Megaman. Dr. Wily's fourth attempt at world domination has failed and his name has once again faded from the minds of the citizens of the world. A few months later...
(Rock and Roll are walking through a field and suddenly a mysterious robot appears in front of them.)
Terra: "So, you are the famous Megaman! I am Terra - and you will soon be my slave!"
(Roll retreats and Mega turns in Mega Man to fight against Terra, but even the charged shot doesn't worked on him, and is defeated.)
Mega Man: "What?! My Mega Buster has no effect on him..."
A few hours later, the world was attacked by warrior robots from space.
Mega Man (awakening): "Where am I?"
Dr. Light found Megaman and equipped him with the new "Mega Arm". The most powerful weapon ever devised.
Why have the Stardroids come here!?
Dr. Light: "Megaman, our world is once again in chaos. The alien robots call themselves "Stardroids" and have conquered most our major cities. They are constructed of alien material which render our weapons useless. But, I have done some analysis and constructed a new weapon for you. It will replace your Super Mega Buster. It is called the "Mega Arm" and it allows you to charge energy in your fist before you fire it. I have also created a new assistant for you. His name is "Tango". I'll enhance this item replicator to make powerful items for you. Collect as many P Chips as possible and return to my lab to exchange them for power-up items. Good luck, Megaman."
Instead of using eight bosses from two NES games like the previous games, all eight bosses from Mega Man V are new.
First four Stardroids (Robot Masters):
Second four Stardroids:
- SRN-001 Terra (Stardroids' leader)
- Skull Blazer
- Enker (from Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge)
- Quint (from Mega Man II)
- Punk (from Mega Man III)
- Ballade (from Mega Man IV)
- Rematch against eight Stardroids
- L. Knuckle and R. Knuckle
- Brain Crusher (Dr. Wily)
- Sunstar (Final boss)
|Image||English name||Japanese name||Stardroid||Description|
|Black Hole||ブラックホール||Saturn||It creates a large black hole above the user's head which sends out a damaging deluge of projectiles through the screen.|
|Break Dash||ブレイクダッシュ||Pluto||A close range attack. Mega Man must charge up the Mega Arm (provided the Break Dash is selected) to use it, using a dash that can break certain blocks. It is like a hybrid of Slash Man's "Slash Claw" and Charge Man's "Charge Kick."|
|Bubble Bomb||バブルボム||Venus||It sends out bubbles that slowly float up and roll through the ceiling before exploding. But if an enemy touches them, they'll explode instantly.|
|Deep Digger||ディープディガー||Uranus||It lifts up certain blocks to throw at enemies, similar to Guts Man's Super Arm. Mega Man must be above the blocks to lift them.|
|Electric Shock||エレクトリックショック||Jupiter||It sends out an short range electrical bolt from Mega Man's hand, damaging anything that gets in its wake.|
|Mercury||It sends a shot that can actually steal energy from the enemy itself.|
|Photon Missile||フォトンミサイル||Mars||It sends out a missile that delays for a second before launching. This is perfect for setting up traps.|
|Salt Water||ソルトウォーター||Neptune||It sends out a large orb of water that, when it hits something, will split and bounce into three smaller balls.|
|Spark Chaser||スパークチェイサー||Terra (Earth)||It is a laser weapon that can change direction (almost in a homing fashion) and can hit multiple times.|
|Tango||タンゴ||Initial||Charging the Mega Arm while Tango is selected will make her appear and roll toward enemies.|
|Rush Coil||ラッシュコイル||Venus||Rush can be used as a spring to Mega Man jump higher.|
|Rush Jet||ラッシュジェット||Saturn||Rush turns into a jet to be used as transport.|
