    I am interested to see what kind of Chris Redfield face we see for this one. :O

  2. Deep Thought on November 7th, 2011 6:05 pm

    inb4 Redfield D: face

  3. MasqueNoMercy on November 7th, 2011 6:09 pm

    wait… did he us spinning metal blades to kill the robot master who uses spinning metal blades?! man why didn't i think of that… his weakness is himself!

  4. Shatman on November 7th, 2011 6:10 pm

    Working on it.

  5. Drjolt on November 7th, 2011 6:14 pm

    Lay off with the blades, son! Even robots with big laser shooters have to hold back on 'da blades!

  6. CriticalQuit on November 7th, 2011 6:18 pm

    When I played Mega Man 2, the only time I panicked was when I either A) Ran out of metal blades or B) Found an enemy immune to metal blades.

  7. Guppy on November 7th, 2011 6:24 pm

    Wiley's first attempts at creating Robot Masters were… less than well thought out.

    He really should have stuck with yoinking Light's creations instead.

  8. redroverone on November 7th, 2011 6:26 pm

    In all fairness, there are very few situations in life you can't get out of with the application of a number of spinning metal blades.

  9. smashpro1 on November 7th, 2011 6:26 pm

    Now you know. and knowing is half the battle.

  10. DiamyoAlex on November 7th, 2011 6:32 pm

    Crazy Buzz Saw Murderer claims another victim: Woodman found brutally murdered.

  11. Dash12345678 on November 7th, 2011 6:35 pm

    Harumph. You did decide to post more things that have been posted on Dueling Analogs, didn't you Shawn? >:U

  12. Senor_Pantalones on November 7th, 2011 6:35 pm

    This will definitely help me in real life!

    When in doubt, use buzz saws.

  13. HughbertEsq on November 7th, 2011 6:37 pm

    I see your Metal saw blades, and raise you my METAL BAWKSES

  14. invadingduck on November 7th, 2011 6:45 pm

    They shoulda saw that one coming.

  15. TheFancyPants on November 7th, 2011 5:51 pm

    A new challenger approaches:

    Metal blade vs. METAL GEAR!

  16. SentryGunner on November 7th, 2011 6:51 pm

    The other half are spinning metal blades

    Even with this awesome guide, I can’t defeat Airman

  19. Red on November 7th, 2011 7:26 pm

    Even with this amazing guide, I still can't defeat Airman!

  20. MC Ninja on November 7th, 2011 7:26 pm

    Like anyone even needed Metal Blades to defeat Bubble Man…

  21. Kittari on November 7th, 2011 7:28 pm

    The Robot Masters in Mega Man 4 and 9 weren't Wily's creations, so he probly learned, had a lapse in memory for the next four games, and learned again.

  22. vash_ts on November 7th, 2011 7:30 pm

    Ravenholm thaught us: Sawblades Ftw

  23. Kittari on November 7th, 2011 7:31 pm

    Looks like Wily's not gonna get the deposit back on those Robot Masters….

  26. PrototypeHero on November 7th, 2011 7:38 pm

    The problem?
    A big, mean, metal, mother hubbard who wants to make you explode into light.
    The solution?
    Use metal blade. And if that don't work, use more metal blade.

  27. Jerach on November 7th, 2011 7:39 pm

    Not bad.

  28. ProfessorLuigi on November 7th, 2011 7:40 pm

    Jock bad grades?
    I LIKE BLADES!
    Awkward dates?
    I LIKE BLADES!
    Don't like blades?

    I LIKE BLADES!

  29. ProfessorLuigi on November 7th, 2011 7:47 pm

    Heat man's weapon blows…
    FIRE!

  30. GazzyW007 on November 7th, 2011 7:49 pm

    Once again we can't beat Air Man~

  31. Twilightdusk on November 7th, 2011 8:04 pm
  32. VaultLegend on November 7th, 2011 8:04 pm

    Airman: "I suck AND blow!"

  33. SirNumel on November 7th, 2011 8:10 pm

    Won't somebody please make a pro as heck guide to beating Airman!?

  34. Ovahdrive on November 7th, 2011 8:43 pm

  37. Krah Klo Zaan on November 7th, 2011 9:08 pm

    The only thing I need as Megaman are blades, lazers, and…blazers

  38. Red on November 7th, 2011 9:09 pm

    Well, there was one documentary about getting rid of air. I think the same principles would apply here. Take a look: rel="nofollow"> rel="nofollow">

  39. Red on November 7th, 2011 9:10 pm

    or any weapon in general

  40. Red on November 7th, 2011 9:11 pm

    It's not like it's the Spanish Inquisition or anything…

  41. Red on November 7th, 2011 9:11 pm

  45. Randomexplosions on November 7th, 2011 9:43 pm

    and mountains

  46. greenxboy on November 7th, 2011 9:57 pm

    I'm I the only one who see that he is using the metal blade againts metal man on his stage?

  47. Skrist on November 7th, 2011 10:06 pm

    Whoever has the best Chris Redfield face should win a Chris Redfield T-shirt.
    But I'll just keep living in my fantasies. :P

  48. Skrist on November 7th, 2011 10:08 pm

    How can anything be immune to metal blades? That's as impossible as shutting off gravity. Wait… gravity is immune to metal blades. I see now… well played.

  49. Skrist on November 7th, 2011 10:11 pm

    I would rather see MegaRedfield.

  50. Omnomynous on November 7th, 2011 10:39 pm

    If only this was around in Megaman and Bass…Freaking Astro Man.

    JUMP'N'SHOOT! JUMP'N'SHOOT!

  52. wolfpax181 on November 7th, 2011 10:44 pm

    Nope, in the non-hardmode MM2, Metal Blades wipes out Metal man in like…2? Or is it 3…but anyway, it's stupidly overpowered against everything that isn't immune to metal blades.

  53. ProfessorLuigi on November 7th, 2011 10:48 pm

    "Just down that tunnel is Castle Wily. We don't go there anymore."

  54. Jimmy on November 7th, 2011 10:49 pm

    Panel to the bottom left…hit Metal Man with Metal Blades even though you haven't beat him yet.

  55. ProfessorLuigi on November 7th, 2011 10:52 pm

    Step 1: Grab a long stick of some sort.
    Step 2: Shove it in his fan body.
    Step 3: Jam his fanblades.
    Step 4: ???
    Step 5: PROFIT.

  56. ProfessorLuigi on November 7th, 2011 10:53 pm

    Correction:
    Step 3: Stick is chopped up and splinters fly everywhere.
    Step 4: Megaman gets a splinter in his eye.
    Step 5: ???
    Step 6: NOT profit. =(

  60. Shady Kitsune on November 7th, 2011 11:03 pm

    The bipedal tank or just some old cog?

  61. Shady Kitsune on November 7th, 2011 11:06 pm

    It's a great way of solving arguements too! =D

    I heard someone issued a challenge on Chris Redfield images.

    Challenge accepted.

  63. Shady Kitsune on November 7th, 2011 11:10 pm

    It looks like Woodman

    Has logged off.

  64. ZeikHunter on November 7th, 2011 11:10 pm

    The battle itself was cut in half by spinning metal blades.

    Fact: Four out of Eight Robot Masters contain Metal Blades.

    And turtles.

  67. Shady Kitsune on November 7th, 2011 11:12 pm

  74. Shady Kitsune on November 7th, 2011 11:34 pm

    Love how Metal Man is punching his own face in. XD

    Both.

  77. Koriko_Hojamine on November 7th, 2011 11:48 pm

    Looks like those villains *sunglasses* didn't make the cut.

  78. BTSnoogans on November 7th, 2011 10:53 pm

    "Heat Man's weapon blows." It kills Wood Man way faster than the Metal Blades do. Just sayin'.

  79. imnutty on November 7th, 2011 11:57 pm

    Shawn, you need to host an official Chris Redface Contest right away.

  82. AManWithACloak on November 8th, 2011 12:19 am

    Can't argue with that!

  83. AManWithACloak on November 8th, 2011 12:19 am

    Then it's not an inquisition!
    It's a teaparty!

  84. TheTopHatKid on November 8th, 2011 12:20 am

    His arm is behind his shoulder…
    Intense pain must be the cause of his expression.

  91. CriticalQuit on November 8th, 2011 12:33 am

    There were some enemies (those fucking walker guys, for example) where when I chucked a metal blade at it… IT BOUNCED OFF.

    My reaction was always OH SHIT I'M FUCKED

  92. CriticalQuit on November 8th, 2011 12:33 am

    Ah! But you have yet to master the art of shooping da whoop, my son.
    You still have much to learn!

  97. TCC on November 8th, 2011 1:00 am

    Nope.avi, he's just looking at the American Megaman boxart.

    You know, other than Capcom denying him existence.

    Except when what you're trying to killitwithfire either reflects or it heals them in some way.

    The only two situations that can be made worse with fire.

    And adding to the list of panacea for life issues, there is no situation that cannot be handled by Macguyver.

    Also, there's a finely powdered chemical compound that smolders at around 540 Fahrenheit when exposed to oxygen. This means you can carry more fire with you than you normally would because a few granules is enough for one count of arson.

  152. Shawn Handyside on November 8th, 2011 12:24 pm

    I kinda want to use that quote for a shirt design now. :O

  153. Shawn Handyside on November 8th, 2011 12:25 pm

    True but you can kill Woodman so fast with Metal Blades it doesn't even really matter if one weapon is slightly more efficient!
