Charge Man’s Stage and Music Rembakun is our only enemy for the first section. It flies forward while dropping three bombs, and aims in front of Mega Man.

Title Music & Stage Select Music Mega Man 5 gives us a somewhat lackluster intro compared to the last one, this time using Proto Man as Wily’s new scapegoat.
