Below is a list of Special Weapons obtained by defeating the Robot Masters in the original Mega Man game, how Mega Man can use them to his advantage and the Robot Master/boss who is the most vulnerable to them.
|Robot Master||Fire Man|
|Abilities||Shoots a fireball, and has a temporary shield effect.|
|Robot Master||Bomb Man|
|Abilities||Throws bombs in a small arc with a slight delay between when a bomb is thrown and when it explodes, but with a decent enough explosion that damages or destroys anything within the blast.|
|Robot Master||Ice Man|
|Abilities||Takes the form of an arrowhead-shaped blade of ice that can either damage or freeze enemies. It is produced via a blast of super-chilled air laced with liquid nitrogen, which then crystallizes to form a projectile.|
|Robot Master||Cut Man|
|Abilities||Takes the form of a large pair of extremely sharp scissor blades that are thrown like boomerangs, flying in front of Mega Man in a teardrop-shaped pattern before returning to him. Can also go through walls.|
|Robot Master||Guts Man|
|Abilities||Mega Man can walk up to certain blocks, and if they can be picked up by the Super Arm, they will flash. Press the attack button to pick them up and press it again to throw them. If there is not enough room available to create an arc, or if/when they land on the ground, the blocks will scatter.|
|Robot Master||Elec Man|
|Abilities||Shoots three long electrical bolts in different directions, one forward, one straight up, and one straight down. Because of the three-way spread and its ability to go through enemies, the Thunder Beam is considered the most powerful weapon in the game.|
