So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Mega Man 9 is a lovingly-crafted throwback to the glory days of the series, with a plot which is a flimsy excuse for Dr. Wily to stir up trouble again and for Mega Man to go fight a new horde of Robot Masters. All this, with graphics that would be at home on the NES.

This game and the sequel wouldn't be rereleased on a newer console until 2018, which is almost ten years after the original release!

Unused Sprites

Mega Man and Proto Man have throwing animations like the ones used by Mega Man in the first four NES games, but none of the weapons in this game can be thrown. However, both sets of sprites, including Proto Man's, would later on be used for the Rebound Striker weapon in Mega Man 10.

What appears to be a skateboarding robot. Interestingly, there is an animation for the robot to fall off the board, an action rather unusual for the Mega Man series (usually, the pilot is destroyed and the vehicle remains).

A squirrel-like robot that appears to be able to fly or fire with its tail.

Regional Differences

As Dr. Light is known as Dr. Right in Japan, his "R" mark that appears in the boss doors from the eight stages was replaced with an "L" outside Japan.
