Air Man
Sends a large series of gusts forward at the same time that you must jump through in order to reach him. Weak against Leaf Shield.

Bubble Man
His room is filled with water that slows your jumps and makes them higher. He will fire bubbles at you along with his beam attack. Weak against Metal Blade.
Quick Man
Moving at lightning speed, Quick Man will launch guided boomerangs at you. Weak against Crash Bomber.

Crash Man
He will throw deadly bombs forward on the ground that will explode a few moments later. If they hit you, they will explode on contact. Weak against Air Shooter.

Mega Man 2
Mega Man 2 is more forgiving than the original, even allowing the use of energy tanks that can be used to replenish your health whenever you choose. The number of Robot Masters is up to 8 and their attacks and behaviors are much more versatile than before. The player can challenge the robot masters in any order, allowing many different routes though the game. The powers you receive from them are also more useful and can make dealing with other Robot Masters much easier once you learn what they are weak to, making the order you challenge them in very important. The music is phenomenal and is among the best of anything found on the NES. Mega Man 2 plays very similarly to the other games in the Mega Man series on the NES and many would consider it the high point of the series. Effective maneuvering around your opponent's attacks in order to maintain enough health to handle the Robot Master at the end of the level is necessary if you want to get very far. Each level follows the theme of its respective Robot Master and has its own variety of challenges to overcome besides simply surviving the enemies found in it. If you liked the other Mega Man games, get this one for sure.
