(1) THE GAME
  The latest installment of the X series offers some new suprises, the
 biggest of which being the jump to the 32-bit Playstation and Saturn
 systems.  In X4 you can play as either X or Zero and the storyline is
 different for either character, even though the stages are the same.  As X,
 you will get information on stages and enemies from a reploid named
 "Double".  As Zero, you will recieve information from a female reploid
 named "Iris".  X still gains special weapons when he defeats the bosses
 but Zero will use a "learning system" instead.  With the learning system,
 Zero will gain new abilities and fighter game style attacks each time he
 defeats an enemy.  While the object of playing as X is to figure out what
 weapon to use on each boss, with Zero you must learn which attacks and
 patterns work best in defeating each enemy, much like in a fighting game.

NOTE:  A lot of the information in the later parts of this guide could be
 considered as "spoilers".  If you want to be suprised by the events in the
 game, it's best to only read this guide when you are stuck.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
(2) THE STORY

  While in a recharging bay, Zero is haunted by a strange vision of an old
 man with wild hair, a big mustache, and a lab coat.  This silouette tells
 Zero that he controls him and controls his life.  As Zero tells the man to
 stop, he suddenly clutches his head and sees flashes of a lab in ruins,
 monitors showing his design schematics, robot bodies torn apart, and his
 own hands with blood on them. This "dark half" of Zero's memory is
 incomplete but dangerous.  As Zero gets up from the floor, an alarm sounds
 warning him of an invasion on Irregular Hunter Headquarters.
  A dark alliance has been formed and reploids all over the world are being
 enlisted to join "Repliforce".  Reliforce was originally created to work
 with the irregular hunter in stopping Irregular Reploids but something has
gone wrong.  Headed by the powerful reploid called "General", Repliforce now 
plans to unite the Reploids of Earth in an effort to destroy mankind.
  X and Zero must rush out to stop General and the Repliforce.  One of thier
 former allies, named "Colonel" has joined Repliforce.  Colonel was a good
 friend to Zero and the older brother of "Iris", a female reploid that works
 with the Irregular Hunters.  Iris hates to see Zero and Colonel fighting
 and, though she is helping the Irregular Hunters, she is torn between her
 friendships to Zero and relation to Colonel.
  X is aided by "Double" as he tries to stop the 8 main commanders of
 Repliforce and find their "Final Weapon" before they can use it to destroy
 the world.  Though he appears to be an ally, there is something strange
 about Double.  Little is known of his past but he offers support for X even
 though he has a habit of being a bit clumsy at times.
  The world hangs in the balance as Repliforce grows in power and General
 and a mysterious figure plot to destroy mankind.  It's up to X and Zero to
 stop Repliforce before it's too late!

(3)SPECIAL ITEMS

Life Energy Capsules: These capsules will give back life energy to your
 power bar.  There are three sizes: Small, which gives back a little energy
 or 1 unit to an E-tank, Medium, which gives back more energy or 2 units to
 an E-tank, and Large, which will refill your life power bar completely or
 give 3 units to an E-tank.

Weapon Energy Orbs: These orbs are like the Life Energy Capsules only they
 refill weapons.  If you have a weapon selected, picking up a Weapon Energy
 Orb will refill it.  If the weapon is full or there is no weapon selected,
 the orb will refill the weapon with the lowest energy, or add to the
 W-Tank if all weapons are full.

Heart Item: In each stage there is one Heart Item, for a total of 8.  Each
 Heart Item will add a little bit of energy to your life bar.  Find all 8
 Heart Items to increase your character to full strength.

E-Tank: There are 2 E-tanks in the game.  Once you gain the E-tanks, you
 will have an energy reserve that you can use if your energy gets low. To
 Fill the E-tanks, collect energy capsules when your life bar is full. 

W-tank: There is one W-tank in the game. The W-Tank is similar to the
 E-Tanks except that it refills weapon energy instead of Life Energy.

EX-Item: The EX-Item will allow your character to start a stage with 4
 lives instead of 2 when you continue.

RIDE ARMORS:
Riden Armor:  Found in the Slash Beastleo and Magmard Dragoon stages.  Press
 the fire button to punch.  Hold down the fire button to charge up and
 release the button to do a dashing punch.  The armor can't move while you
 are charging up.

Eagle Armor: Found in the Storm Fokuroul stage and the second final weapon
 stage.  Press the jump once to jump, press the jump button again in mid-air
 to hover, and press the jump button while hovering to drop. You will also
 drop when you are hovering if you get hit by enemy fire.  Hold the fire
 button to charge a shot up and release it to fire.  You can't walk while
 charging up a shot but if you are hovering when you hold down the button,
 you can still move.

Ride Chase motor bike: Found in the Jet Stingren stage.  Press the fire
 button to shoot at obstacles and enemies, use the jump button to jump over

 at bay.  Hit him and then get back.  If he flies off the screen, keep
 moving.  If he floats back and forth, run under him when he moves up.

 and head to the right.  Use the web for X or double-jump for Zero to get
 around the cliff and collect the 1-up.
  1-up: In the third cavern at the beginning of area 1, there is a 1-up
 hidden in the left wall.  Jump from the dissapearing ice platforms to get

 the falling section and then jump over to the Heart.

 "He lives in Cyberspace and wants to destroy the network system"
 The entire stage is a virtual simulation, but the danger is real.

 as Zero.  To get an "S" rating, you must go through the section as quickly
 as possible.  If you see "HURRY UP" under your character and some arrows
 pointing down appear to the right of your character, you're too late.  Use
 the Soul Body with X or the Sky Waltz attack to keep the yellow orbs out
 of the way and dash or dash-jump through as much of the stage as possible.

 lower row on the screen and attack the red "eye" on the right wall when it
 is open.

(b) Dr. Light Capsule Locations and Descriptions

  Boots: Found behind a waterfall in Area 1 of the Jungle (Web Spidus/Web
 Spider) stage.  Press the jump button twice to use them to hover or press
 the dash button in the middle of a jump to do an air-dash.

  Arms: Found in Area 2 of the Space Fortress (Storm Fokuroul/Storm Owl)
 stage.  Shoot the web from the right distance to barely cover the spikes
 hat line a hole  in the ceiling right before the first door in the Area 2.
 There are 2 different arm upgrades but you can only use one at a time.  The
 first capsule (on the right) will allow you to store up 4 fully charged
 shots to fire one after another.  The second capsule will give you a super
 shot that will leave a lingering energy orb that damages anything that
 touches it. Either arm upgrade will allow you to charge up your special
 weapons.

  Helmet: Found in area 1 of the Cyberspace (Cyber Kujacker/Cyber Peacock)
 stage.  Get an "S" rating in the 3rd section to get to the capsule.  Use
 the Soul Body to Keep the yellow orbs out of the way and use the dash and
 dash-jump as much as possible.  The helmet will allow you to use weapons
 uncharged without losing energy.  Your weapons will only use up energy when
 you charge them.

  Body: Found in Area 2 of the Volcano (Magmard Dragoon/Magma Dragon) stage.
 Dash-jump from the cliff just above where you see the Riden Armor onto a
 ledge above the lava.  Use a fully-charged Twin Slasher shot to break the
 rocks.  The body armor upgrade will give you the Novastrike Giga Attack.
 You can fill up the Novastrike power bar by either getting hurt or by
 picking up energy or weapon capsules.

(c) Boss Patterns

Magmard Dragoon/Magma Dragon:  Use either the Riden armor or the Double
 Cyclone.  In his stage, you can use the Riden armor to walk through the
 lava.  At the end of the lava is a tunnel that you can punch through with
 the armor.  If you've managed to get to Magmard without taking a hit in the
 armor, then just keep attacking him with the armor to defeat him.  If you
 are using the Double Cyclone, attack him and he'll jump to the other side
 of the screen.  Follow him to the other side and attack him again to make
 him jump to the opposite side of the screen again.  Repeat this pattern
 until he's dead.

Frost Kibatodos/Frost Walrus:  Hit him with the Rising Fire and climb the
 wall that he heads towards when he turns into a tank to avoid him.  Jump
 off the wall and repeat this until he starts to form the icicle in the air. 
 Stay just to the side of the icicle and when it falls, run to where it
 landed to avoid the smaller icicles.  When he advances forward, hit him
 with the fire and repeat this pattern until he's dead.

Jet Stingren/Jet Stingray: When he starts to drop down from the sky, jump up
 directly beneath him and fire off the Frost Tower to freeze him.  He'll fly
 off and drop down again. Repeat the pattern until he's dead.

Slash Beastleo/Slash Beast: Hit him with the ground hunter to trip him then
 jump to a wall or use the hover boots to avoid his dash attack. Repeat the
 pattern until he's dead.

Web Spidus/Web Spider: Attack him with the Twin Slasher and jump to the
 walls and off of them to get over his webs. When he spins his web on the
 screen and starts moving around, just keep firing at him with the Twin
 Slasher while avoiding the little spiders he shoots and his webs.

Split Mushroom: Stay in the center of the screen and fire a Lightning Web at
 him each time he jumps onto a wall.

Cyber Kujacker/Cyber Peacock: Keep moving but stay near the center of the
 screen and when he appears, fire off the Soul Body so that the double hits
 him.

Storm Fukuroul/Storm Owl: Use the Aiming Laser to lock onto him and fire at
 him when he tries to attack.

Colonel - Mid Stage: Be sure to have the boots when you get to him.  When
 he dissapears, jump and hover until he swings at you twice.  Hit him with a
 shot as he dashes to the side of the screen and then jump and hover to
 avoid his shots.

Colonel - Space Port: Try and get him to appear in the center of the screen
 so he'll do his lightning attack.  Hover between the green tiles on the
 ground to avoid the lightning and hit him with shots.  Follow the same
 pattern as in the mid-stage battle for the rest.

Double- Hit him with the Double Cyclone and jump and hover to avoid the big
 blue balls he fires at you.

General- Hit him in the head with the Twin Slasher.  There is a safe spot in
 the upper-left corner that you can use to avoid taking excessive damage.
 Just remember to move up and down the wall a bit to avoid the rings that he
 shoots at you when his arms detach.

Bosses: See above.

Sigma:
Part 1 (Grim Reaper): Shoot Rising Fire shots up at him just as he appears
 the first 2 times and then climb one of the walls to avoid him the third
 time.  Repeat this until his power is depleted.

Part 2 (Main Body): For the first attack, dash under him when he jumps to
 avoid the sickle and hit him with the Lightning Web.  On the second attack
 jump to the wall to get him to hit the wall with sickle and drop down
 before it hits you.  Dash-jump to the wall behind him before he fires the
 lasers to avoid being injured.  Repeat until he's defeated.

Parts 3 and 4 (Giant Robot body and Giant Head):  There are 2 parts here you
 have to destroy.  One is a giant robot with a gun which will appear on the
 right side of the screen and the other part is a giant head that appears in
 the lower-left part of the screen.  The yellow, blue, and red heads will
 attack every other attack.  The attacks are in a sequence of 4: first the
 colored heads, then the giant head in the corner, then the colored heads
 again, and then the giant robot.  Destroy the yellow and red heads quickly
 to avoid a lot of damage and climb on the red and yellow heads when the
 blue one spits water at you.  Stay near the right of the screen when the
 giant head appears. If it tries to blow you into the spikes, dash to stay
 away from them and fire when you can.  If it tries to suck you in let the
 yellow head block your path and keep firing charged shots at the head to
 destroy the rocks it spits.  For the giant robot, stay in the upper left
 corner until it appears.  Fire off a shot and if it raises it gun and fires
 along the ground, stay in the corner.  If it fires off the straight beam,
 keep jumping and firing between shots to draw it's fire up.  You can also
 use the Ground Hunter on the big head and the Soul Body on the big robot,
 but it's a lot harder to hit him with them and they don't really do much
 more damage than what your X-Buster will do.
NOTE: There are a number of variations and other ways to defeat the final
 2 parts of Sigma.  What I have included here is the most effective way I've
 found.  Some of the variations include using the Frost Tower on the big
 head, climbing either wall to avoid rocks, and using the Nova Strike to
 take off initial damage to either part.

 through the lava and confront him.  Keep punching away and you will take a
 lot of his energy away if not all of it before the ride armor is destroyed.
 Otherwise, it's a lot like a fighting game, you just have to anticipate
 his moves and try and dodge them, usually by dashing or jumping over him.
  Jump behind him when you can and hit him with the Thunder God Attack.

Frost Kibatodos/Frost Walrus:  Hit him with the Dragon Flame Blade and then
 climb the walls and jump over him to avoid him when he slides along the
 ground. When he starts forming the icicle, stay to either side of it and as
 soon as it hit the ground move to where it landed to avoid the smaller
 icicles.  You can attack him when he's forming the icicle, just don't let
 it land on you while you are in the middle of an attack.

Cyber Kujacker/Cyber Peacock: Stay near the middle of the screen and the
 moment he starts to appear, hit him with the Dragon Flame Blade.  When he
 starts appearing to the sides, move over a little and quickly hit him with
 the Rising Flame Sword and get back to the middle.

Storm Fukuroul/Storm Owl:  Stay near the center of the screen and hit him
 with the Fallen Phoenix Crush.  You'll have to take a few hits or strike at
 him when  he lands because you won't have enough Giga Attack energy to
 finish him off otherwise.
 
Jet Stingren/Jet Stingray:  Get up to the upper-left corner.  When he flies
 up and starts to drop down, quickly hit him with the Ice Stab.  It takes a
 lot of practice and perfect timing, but if you do it right, you can trap
 him in the corner without taking any damage.  Another technique is to use
 the Sky Waltz and Ice Stab.  Get to the wall behind him, jump up twice and
 immediately stab down into him as he's dropping down.

Web Spidus/Web Spider: Use the Sky Waltz to get over the webs he throws at
 you and hit him while you are in the air.  When he spins his web, just keep
 attacking him and dodging the webs and spiders that he throws at you.

Split Mushroom: Hit him while he's on the wall and then use the Thunder God
 Attack on the "real" one (the one that appers to be more solid) when he
 splits in two.

Slash Beastleo/Slash Beast: Dash out of the way when he tries to land on you 
and use Sky Waltz to avoid his rushing attacks and Twin Slasher attack.

Colonel:  When he dissapears, double-jump to avoid his attacks.  Wait until
 he appears in the middle of the screen and does the lightning attack.  Stay
 off the green spots on the ground and double jump to avoid the lightning.
 Jump over the beams he fires and strike at him when he's doing the
 lightning attack or sword attacks.

Iris:  Each time you hit her, she drops air-mines.  Hit her armor until the
 purple crystal is released and then attack the crystal and not her.  When
 the crystal gets under you, stay away from the wall until it stops and then
 dash-jump to the wall to avoid its blast.

General: Stay to the left side of the screen.  When he moves over towards
 you, quickly jump up to the upper-left corner and hit him in the head from
 behind when he comes over to your side.

Bosses: See Above

Sigma:
Part 1 (Grim Reaper):  Use the Dragon Flame Blade on him just as he appears
 the first 2 times and then climb one of the walls to avoid him the third
 time.  Repeat this until his power is depleted.

Part 2 (Main Body): For the first attack, dash under him when he jumps to
 avoid the sickle and hit him with the Sky Waltz.  On the second attack jump 
 to the wall to get him to hit the wall with sickle and drop down before it
 hits you.  Dash-jump to the wall behind him before he fires the lasers to
 avoid being injured.  Repeat until he's defeated.

Parts 3 and 4 (Giant Robot body and Giant Head):  There are 2 parts here you
 have to destroy.  One is a giant robot with a gun which will appear on the
 right side of the screen and the other part is a giant head that appears in
 the lower-left part of the screen.  The yellow, blue, and red heads will
 attack every other attack.  The attacks are in a sequence of 4: first the
 colored heads, then the giant head in the corner, then the colored heads
 again, and then the giant robot.  Destroy the yellow and red heads quickly
 to avoid a lot of damage and climb on the red and yellow heads when the
 blue one spits water at you.  Stay near the right of the screen when the
 giant head appears. If it tries to blow you into the spikes, dash to stay
 away from them and use the Hurricane Fang when you are close enough.  If it
 tries to suck you in let the yellow head block your path as you destroy it
 with the Thunder God Attack and keep attacking the big head after the
 yellow one is destroyed to destroy the rocks it spits and to do damage to
 it.  For the giant robot, stay in the upper left corner until it appears.
 If its raises it gun and fires along the ground, stay in the corner.  If it
 fires off the straight beam, get in close and use the Sky Waltz to hit it
 as well as destroy the red head under it since the gun barrel itself won't
 harm you.

(7) Secret Codes
Turn off background noise:  If you press start to go to the sub screen on
 the Marine Base or Jungle stages and then press start to return to the
 game, the background noise caused by the jet bike on the Marine Base or the
 waterfalls in the Jungle will be turned off.  The bike noise will return
 when you do a dash attack.

Super Armors-
There are hidden special armors for X and Zero that you can access through
 special codes on the character select screen.
To activate the "Ultimate Armor" for X:
 Playstation:
At the player select screen, highlight X.
Press the "X" button (Circle button in the US version) twice.
Press Left on the D-Pad 6 times.
Hold L1 and R2 and press start.

 Saturn:
At the player select screen, highlight X.
Press the "B" button twice.
Press Left on the D-Pad 6 times.
Hold L and R and press start.

If you do this correctly, you'll notice that the light blue parts of X's
 armor are now purple.  When you enter any of the special armor capsules,
 you will be given the full Ultimate Armor suit.  With this armor, you can
 do the Novastrike attack without using up any of it's energy.

(Note: The "Ulimate Armor" is the special armor that X has in the "Mega
 Armor Series" action figure that was packed in with the Japanese "Special
 Limited Pack".  The "Special Limited Pack" is a limited edition version of
 the Japanese Rockman X4 game that came packed in with the first figure in
 the Japanese "Mega Armor Series" of X and Zero action figures.)

Zero's Dark Costume:
To activate the black and white armor for Zero:
 Playstation:
At the player select screen, highlight Zero.
Hold the R1 button and press right 6 times.
Release the R1 button, hold the X button (Circle button in the US version), and press start.

 Saturn:
At the player select screen, highlight Zero.
Hold the R button and press right 6 times.
Release the R button, hold the B button, and press start.

Outside of the different outfit, I haven't found any significant difference
 between the regular Zero and the dark version.

The coolest part is that you can save these armors in memory, so you don't
 have to put the code in every time.

There is a hidden option in the option screen, but I don't know what it is
 or how to access it.  If anyone has any information on this, let me know.

  ---X's QUEST---

--OPENING----------------------------------------------------------------

MYSTERY FIGURE: It's about the Maverick Hunters, General.  They are far too
 eager to please the humans and continue to hunt down the Reploids.  Do you
 believe they pose a significant threat?
GENERAL: Perhaps...
MYSTERY FIGURE:  You already know the truth, General!  Their sole mission
 has been to destroy any Reploids who fail to do as the humans order.  It is
 in your best interest to stop them now, before they turn on you.  You
 possess enough power to destroy them!!
GENERAL:  You're dismissed.
MYSTERY FIGURE: What?!
GENERAL: I will not betray the humans.  Remove yourself from my sight.  My
 business with you has concluded.
MYSTERY FIGURE: Heh-heh... Very well, but you will change your mind soon.
 I assure you... HAHAHAAA!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  MAVERICK HUNTER H.Q.

HUNTER H.Q.: Mavericks have been found at point 5567!  The Mavericks
 occupied the Sky Lagoon using the most advanced weapons available!  The
 army appears to be the Repliforce!
X: Roger that!  I'm on my way now!

  SKY LAGOON Area 1:

X: You're Dragoon from the 14th unit!
DRAGOON: This isn't good, X!  That Maverick just destroyed the power
 reactor!
X: What?!  Then the Sky Lagoon will... come crashing into the ground!
DRAGOON: It's too late, X!  It's time I made my escape.  I suggest you do
 the same... don't do anything reckless on the way out, okay?

X: The city below will become a sea of flames.  Many people will perish... 
 I have no choice but to escape from here and head to the city below!

X: Has the Repliforce been occupying this area?

 army responsible for all the violence in this region is not the Repliforce!
X: Nevertheless, I want you to disarm and follow me back to the H.Q.
COLONEL: Never!  You're asking my soldiers to drop their weapons?  The only
 time we drop our weapons is when we aren't able to fight any longer!
X: But you will be regarded as a Maverick and treated as such.
COLONEL: Do as you will!  The Repliforce would sooner fight and die than
 discard our pride!  Consider us Mavericks if this is what you wish!
X: Wait!  Calm down Colonel!

X: What the...!  Something's got to give.  Otherwise the entire Repliforce
 will be considered to be Mavericks!


--REPLIFORCE ANNOUNCEMENT--------------------------------------------

GENERAL:  Brave soldiers of Repliforce, we have all been wrongfully judged
 as Mavericks by the humans!  We cannot suffer this indignity and live in
 disgrace!  We will build our own nation of Reploids but remember this is
 neither about insurrection or rebellion against our human creators.  This
 is about our liberty and security.  We must battle for our own individual
 rights and our own survival.  Together we will build our nation, a
 sanctuary for all Reploids, our own utopia.  Let us forge onward towards a
 new golden era for the Repliforce.
COLONEL:  I too share the General's sentiment.  Take heed, we have no other
 choice.  Let us fight venerably with courage and pride, without fear for we
 are the Repliforce... the most powerful army in history!!
MYSTERY FIGURE: HAHAHAA! The General has finally taken action... and now my
 Maverick Hunters, what will you do?  I'll be watching closely from here on
 out!  HAHAHAHAAA!!

The battle has ended.  Yet somehow X doesn't feel quite right...
"... What caused all those robots to  turn into Mavericks?"
"... Will it happen to me someday?"
Has X just realized his tragic destiny?  It appears that X will have to
 solve this mystery one day...
Soon...

  MAVERICK HUNTER H.Q.

HUNTER H.Q.:   Mavericks emerged at the point 5567.  They've occupied Sky
 Lagoon!  This looks like Repliforce's doing!
ZERO: Repliforce? ... OK.  I'm on my way.

  SKY LAGOON Area 1

ZERO: Dragoon!?  You're in the 14th unit.  Why...?
DRAGOON: This doesn't look good, Zero!  That Maverick took out the power!
ZERO: What!  Then the Sky Lagoon will... come crashing into the ground!
DRAGOON: Yes... and destroy the entire city.
ZERO: We have to do something!
DRAGOON: It's too late.  I must escape now.  You'd best do the same, Zero...

ZERO: Damn!  If the Sky Lagoon falls... it will be disastrous!  There's no
 time... I'm going down!

  SKY LAGOON Area 2

ZERO: The carnage... It's... horrible... Those Mavericks will pay for this!

IRIS: Zero... Did you come to save me?
ZERO: Yes.  Hang on!
IRIS: A huge Maverick appeared and...
ZERO: Stay here Iris.  I'll handle it!

ZERO: Is this really one of Repliforce's?  I don't have a moment to spare! 
 I have to defeat him or else...

(battle)

COLONEL: Zero!  Long time no see!
ZERO: Colonel... What are you doing here?
COLONEL: I've come to save my sister Iris.  I only hope she's okay...
ZERO: She's fine!  I just rescued her.
COLONEL: Oh?  Thanks Zero!  I owe you one...
ZERO: ...Colonel.  I have a question for you. ...Did your unit attack this
 place?
COLONEL: What are you talking about?  Repliforce came here for help.  We
 weren't involved in the attack!
ZERO: They suspect you've become a Maverick.
COLONEL: What!?
ZERO: Disarm and come with me to the H.Q.
COLONEL: I'm afraid I can't.  Soldiers never drop their weapons!  I won't do
 it, not even for you Zero!
ZERO: Then they'll think you're a Maverick!
COLONEL: So be it!  The Repliforce prefers war over dishonor and shame! 
 Good bye, Zero!
ZERO: Wait!  Colonel!  Listen to me!

ZERO: Damn!  This isn't good Colonel!  They may decide the entire Repliforce
 is a group of Mavericks!

ZERO: Iris! ...What are you doing here?
IRIS: My brother Colonel started the coup!
ZERO: I know...

  (after credits)

... The battle has ended.  But for some reason, Zero's memories of the past
 continue to haunt his mind.
... As a hunter, it is his duty to go after those Mavericks...
... And at the same time, he knows that it is his destiny to defeat his
 friend one day.
Two different people.  Two different fates.
In the future... Zero's decision will lead two great hunters to tragedy.
The future is coming...
