    Pretty much self explanitory. Mega Man (and Bass' Quick Man skin) can't get these coins without killing himself or turning on the Bouncy Pits cheat. There are several other underwater levels that have coins in this situation as well.

    They're just bonuses for characters who can get them, similar to how you can skip SMBS 3-2 if small enough.

    I thought Samus and Link couldn't get them either?
    I don't think that's a bug.

    Wouldn't hurt to add a vertical oscillator there, either.

    Exactly.

    Link can get them with the Boomerang, actually.
    Anyway, yeah, there are a few coins in the game that only some characters can get. If it makes you feel better, though, I believe Mega Man is eventually planned to get the Rush Marine, and Link to get swimming (and possibly Simon to get unlimited underwater jumps).

    Certain characters not getting certain things is not a bug or even necessarily a mistake. It's the result of having a wide variety of characters with different skills.

    There's a powerup in...I think it's 8-2 that Bill cannot reach. And a couple dozen secret coin blocks (just in the SMB maps, I don't know the SMBS maps well yet) that Mario and Luigi can't get because they were unhittable in the original SMB (Jay made them coin blocks back in like 1.2 or something, before that they were just invincible blocks).

    If something is added to let more characters get it, that's awesome, but I don't think it's a bug necessarily.

    Yeah, I wouldn't call this a bug. It's unfortunate that there are a few coins here and there that not all characters can get, but that's the nature of a crossover game.

    I thought that you'd fix things like this so that all characters can get the coins? You guys used to do that, what's happened?

    It's only two extra coins. Beyond that, the coins are just bonuses for people who can get them, similar to how certain characters can skip smbs 3-2 if small enough.

    Link could get them with his Boomerang.

    I already said that.

    Well.
    Whoops.


    But I'm pretty sure Bill can't get those.

    Bill needs the hookshot item, and ceiling grab, fast

    I have actually made a few adjustments to allow for some coin-getting, since we added a new tag to help non-swimming characters underwater.

    Dude, that's just a challenge that he's not taking away. Would SMBC be any fun without a challenge or two?

    It isn't a challenge if it's flatly impossible.
    But regardless it's not really necessary.

    Well, that's not my problem if we don't see eye to eye.

    It literally is not a challenge. It's either get those coins or you physically can't without dying.

    I want that. Also, i think that Megaman should swim like in Mega Man 8.
