    Ok, so we all KNOW (sarcasm) Bass is better then Mega, but lets compare, shall we?

    Mega Man pros:
    can summon rush
    can shoot throgh walls
    has a charge shot
    can slide through small spaces
    has a skin with an altered shooting location( can be used stratigecly

    Mega Man cons:
    does not have a double jump
    can't rapid fire
    takes longer to get all power-ups

    Bass pros:
    has double jump
    rapid fire
    gets powerups faster
    dash jump

    Bass cons:
    cant summon rush (shocker...)
    cant shoot through walls
    no charge shot
    can't slide through small spaces

    Now, if i seem to be flat out ignoring something, just let me know here.

    Really? I thought it was common knowledge that Proto Man shoots lower than Mega Man by now.

    It's common knowledge, but newer members tend to not know it.

    It's pretty hard to notice in game in most cases.

    anyway, back to the main focus of the thread

    Mega Man shoots harder than Bass, and can shoot while walking running.

    Er, what does this mean, exactly? Do you just mean that Bass has one fewer power-up? I'm not sure that really counts as a "Pro" (especially since "can summon Rush" is already listed as a "Pro" for Mega Man).

    Yeah, it's kind of a cop out >_>

    It's true though, and especially will be once more Rush forms are added; Mega Man takes longer to reach full power, even if that full power is moreso than Bass's.

    instead of "rapid fire" I would say that mega man shoots 3 pellets whereas Bass shoots 5 (or was it 4?)

    There's no technical restriction on the speed at which you can fire pellets with mega man, it's just a matter of how fast you push the button.

    Bass shoots 3 pre-Mushroom, 4 post-Mushroom.

    I prefer to spam the button if it's an annoying enemy. i mean, obviusly (woot, best spelling ever.), with bass spamming the buttton is much easier than with... wait, where was i going with this..?

    oh yea, never mind what i said in the last scentence.

    Bass can also fire in multiple directions.
