The "Video Game Lies Database" is a fun little wiki, archiving fabricated video game cheats and secrets ranging fake Pokemon to unattainable Mortal Kombat fatalities --stuff you might have heard from playground acquaintances.
Among the BS are two Mega Man cheats from MM1 and MM2:
MM1: "After the sequel had been released with a password system, there was a rumor that you could access a password screen in the first game by either holding a certain button combination or inputting a code on the title screen. "MM2:
MM2: "There is a secret boss somehow accessible via the Bubbleman stage. If you beat it, you will be automatically teleported to the end of the game."
"Based on a truth; while there technically is no secret boss, there *is* a glitch that can be performed in Bubbleman's boss room by shooting multiple Item 1 platforms and then trying to go backwards out the door. If done correctly, with exact timing, this will teleport the player into a glitched-up version of a room from one of the Wily stages, where he or she can fight a deformed Bubbleman that's entrapped in the wall. "
Fun, no? Truth be told, I once devoted a whole summer looking for the secret password screen. So naive...
