I've run the idea past Jay of having a weapon other than Magma Bazooka represent Mega Man 9, and he didn't seem opposed, so the idea is certainly out there. The question remains, however: which weapon should be used instead? I'll share some reasons why I think a different weapon should represent MM9, but I also thought it would be a good idea to get some community input on this matter. I think that while Magma Bazooka is a good weapon, a different should be chosen, the main reasons being a) Mega Man already has Flame Blast as a fire weapon, and b) Jay has stated he was having trouble getting the charging to work properly (it does charge differently than the Buster). Also, related to a), the colors of the weapon are already pretty much already represented by Flame Blast. I have a few thoughts on which weapons could replace Magma Bazooka. I would choose from among Laser Trident, Plug Ball, and Tornado Blow. Laser Trident would be a lot of fun because it pierces through enemies as it damages them--even when it doesn't kill them. This weapon is my preference. It's fast, simple, and effective. Plug Ball travels along the ground and up around surfaces. This would be a lot of fun. A minor drawback is that the color is already very similar to Charge Kick, though Jay could probably change that (he already has for a couple of the weapons). Tornado Blow would also be a lot of fun, since it gives you a boost in jump height. The "drawback" is that it may be too powerful, as it hits all enemies on the screen. However, you're rarely completely surrounded anyway, so there are only a few instances where it would actually be a screen clearer. What are your thoughts? Keep in mind the power level of the weapon. I've listed all of them in the poll, but some may simply be too powerful to even be considered, or they may simply be a repeat weapon type (like Jewel Satellite as a shield weapon--we already have Water Shield).
