    This would be an awesome cheat. What I'm thinking is that when enabled, you wil not lose powerups, but you lose some life, represented with the megaman life bar. To unlock, beat the game with megaman and bass.
    What do you think?

    Would the megaman knockback be featured?

    Every character already has their own form of knockback so it'd be weird.
    Also I personally think a more generic lifebar would be a more suitable option.

    Sorry, when I said knockback I meant for the Mario Bros.
    And what would be unsuitable about this?

    When have the Mario Bros had knockback?

    Nat Level 6: Lakitu

    They don't, which is why I thought the cheat would enable knockback for them.

    I think I made life bar mode request sometime very very very long ago before there was even request sections.
    Btw you actually don't need to use Mega Man health bar for the job. Everyone can use it's health bar from it's own game. Example Mario and Luigi can use the hearts life bar from SMB 2. Even for Bill his hit points could be represented by medals, when he would get hit he would drop dead and respawn at the spot where he got hit.

    As I said I already made a thread of such sometime very long ago. I wrote it down in detail in it.

    I mean, in Nintendo games, when did they have knockback?
    Or is it just because everyone else has it?

    Well they have knockback in SMB2 USA (and smash bros, though that doesn't really count)

    Not when shrinking.

    Yes, I remember the request. I think a Life Bar Mode should be added for all characters.

    Alrighty then

    I think characters could still start with 3 lives, but 100 coins and green mushrooms wouldn't give 1ups but refill health to balance gameplay. So one can only have no more than 3 lives.

    What
    If anything, Mushrooms and Fire Flowers should grant health. The 100 coins thing I can sorta get behind, but the 1up mushrooms? Eh.

    How is a generic life-bar more suitable for Mega Man than Mega Man's lifebar...?!

    Or is this referring to a life-bar for all the characters?

    That is exactly what I'm referring to. Either multiple health bars to match the appropriate characters or a single, generic life bar is what I would agree to.

    Don't forget about Castlevania 2's Simon healthbar system:

    I would think Mushrooms/Flowers should be replaced by weapon/item powerups, except for the Mario Bros of course.

    Yeah, it seems the old threads are being revived at the moment. Same with the Ice Flower request, which I suggested a long time ago, and which was immediately shunned by a lot of people. Seems to be doing a lot better now.

    It would be nice to be able to be hit without losing all your stuff while still having a balanced game.
