Wily Machine

Wily Machines are machines that Dr. Wily created in the Mega Man series. * Note these are non-official names*

Wily Machine No. 1

In Mega Man 1, it could be too difficult to beat the Wily Machine without its weaknesses on its two forms. First, Fire Storm is the best weapon at the red gun.

On its second form, Wily is now immune to fire. If Mega Man used Crash Bomber on Boobeam Trap, Mega Man can use Metal Blade, but the shots are difficult to avoid. Also, if Mega Man uses Crash Bomber on Quick Man or Flash Man, Mega Man will have trouble beating it. If Mega Man loses all of his lives, his Crash Bombers are reloaded.
