Mega Man X8

This trick requires a Life Tank, but it does not have to be full. Spend all
your Metals until you have less than 50. After that, buy the Life Charge Chip.
Normally you cannot buy it if you do not have more than 50 Metals. If it works,
you will see the Metal counter get crazy. You can now buy anything at the R&D
Lab. If you take any Metal on a stage, the metal counter will drop to the top
Easy combo multiplier:
You must have the D-Glaive Weapon for Zero, the Rasensetsu (the weapon obtained
from Dark Mantis). Enter a level with Zero and look for a the enemy that shoots
three rockets at you at the same time. Equip the D-Glaive and stand far enough
from the enemy to where you will not kill him, but will still be able to get him
to shoot rockets at you. Then, perform the spin attack obtained from Dark Mantis
in mid air. After awhile you will rack up a large number of combo attacks.
Successfully complete the game and load your cleared saved file. You can buy
Zero's Sigma-Blade at the R&D Lab.
Just have both character's life at full and perhaps a Life Tank. You can kill
every Boss with only the Buster and Saber.
Successfully complete the game and load your cleared saved file. The navigator
used most to complete the levels will be unlocked (Alia, Layer, or Palette).
Alia is similar to X with an X-buster, but cannot use armor pieces. Layer is
similar to Zero with a Z-saber. Palette is similar to Axl, but has no DNA-copy
Note: Make sure to complete it first so you have his abilities. Use anyone with
X and go through the level. Once you must follow the Mechaniloid, do so until you
reach the small pit during the first run. Charge up crystal wall and release it
to see the special Metal in it.
Easy "S" rank:
This trick requires the Sigma Blade and the Black Armor. It also works with only
the Sigma Blade, however it is easier with the armor as Zero will be twice as
strong. Choose Zero and any other character. At the beginning, equip the Sigma
Blade and simply keep advancing trough the rooms. It should be much easier to
get the top rank at all the rooms, as this weapon breaks enemies' barriers with
a single hit, thus defeating certain enemies with just one hit. By doing this,
you should have about a 60% chance (with Sigma Blade only) and up to 90% chance
(with armor and Sigma Blade) of getting an "S" rank at all the rooms. Two of
the three rare metals of this stage can be collected only if you get top rank
on the rooms. Get top ranking on at least five rooms to get the rare metal
for a life tank. Get top rank in all the rooms to get the metal for the metal
Note: Both will appear at the end of the stage where you collect the battle spools.
Recommended Boss order:
The following is the recommended order of Boss to take on based on weapon
weaknesses. Note: Vile is weak against Yeti's ice weapon.
Gigavolt Man O War
Use the following Boss order, with the corresponding weapon weakness.
Optic Sunflower (Green Spinner)
Dark Mantis (Shining Ray)
Avalanche Yeti (Shadow Runner)
Burn Rooster (Drift Diamond)
Gravity Antonion (Melt Creeper)
Earthrock Trilobyte (Squeeze Ball)
Gigabolt Man-O-War (Crystal Wall)
Bamboo Pandamonium (Thunder Dancer)
Vile (Drift Diamond)
Copy Sigma (Shadow Runner)
Lumine, Angel form (X-Buster)
Use the following Boss order. Each Boss' weakness is the weapon acquired from
the Boss listed above it. Though Earthrock Trilobite's helmet is destroyed by
the gravity weapon and it does more damage, attacking with guard breaking moves
(full charge, third swing, eighth shot) will only knock the helmet off and he
will be vulnerable while he tries to return to it.
Earthrock Trilobite (weak against Guard Breaks or Gravity Weapon;
harder as he is not distracted)
Gigavolt Man-O-War (weak against Avalanche Yeti)
Pitch Black stage: Rare Metal:
*After you start the generator, continue with the stage. Wait until you get to the end
of this room. Do not go through the door yet. Because the lights are now on, you will
see two platforms above you. Note: The second one may be difficult to see. Use somebody
that can jump high to reach the Rare Metal on the second platform.
*After turning on the generator with Thunder Dancer or the Plasma Gun, walk out of the
room you are in. Instead of falling to the lower level, double back where you came from.
Notice that there are ledges to jump on top of. Use Zero to keep jumping the ledges to
get to the Rare Metal.
*Once you have Gigabolt Man o' war's Weapon and the Metal Generator you can buy at the
lab for 5,000 Metal, bring Axl and anyone else, with anyone as the navigator. Have Axl
copy a guard in the level and reach the generator. Once you are there, you can keep
walking into the generator without stopping. With the metal generator you will gain 24
Metal every three seconds.
Noah's Park stage: Rare Metal:
*When you have the Icarus Armor, go to Noah's Park stage again with Pallete as navigator.
When you get to the room where she says "Find a way to break those rocks above you",
jump up and hit the rocks with the Icarus Armor. Up there is a Rare Metal.
*Have Zero and somebody else, and Alia as navigator. At the first waterfall she will
say there is a ledge that you can jump up to. That is where the Rare Metal is located.
Alternate ending sequence:
The character that kills Lumine (Axl, X, or Zero) will determine which ending sequence

2.When you are at the place mentioned above(with X and anyone else) go to the entrance
blocked by containers and break it by the armor's punch.You'll reach a place with spikes
(if you are in the robot you cannot go there so you get out of robot and again get inside
