So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
To do:
Look for the Shoot! Shoot! sprites and rip them please. The PlayStation version's sprites is being used for reference and need to be replaced.

Mega Man 8 is the eighth entry in the classic Mega Man series. Dr. Wily stole some guy's skulls and he wants them back.

Unused Sprites


Along with "Jump! Jump!" and "Slide! Slide!", there are unused "Shoot! Shoot!" notifiers for the snowboard sections in Frost Man and Wily's stages. There is no corresponding voice clip, so this may've been removed fairly early on. These also are not used in either of the PlayStation prototype versions.

Unused Audio

Mega Man saying "Metal Heroes", the Japanese subtitle of the game. Its presence is interesting, since every Mega Man up to this game removes the subtitles from the international releases.

Dr. Light letting you know who it's up to. It's worth noting that the sound test only includes voice clips from in-game and the menus, and Dr. Light never talks outside cutscenes.

Regional Differences


Japan International

The Japanese intro's theme music, "Electrical Communication" by Ganasia, was replaced by a rather tame synth pop track for the international release.


To do:
Either get the ending theme over the proper footage or just rip the songs and upload these as .oggs.
Japan International

The end theme used in the Japanese version, "Brand New Way" by Ganasia, was also replaced.
