The passwords listed below will allow you to skip directly to various portions of the game.
Any One Robot Defeated
These passwords will allow you to start the game with a single robot of your choice already defeated and the corresponding letter for Beat collected.
B-1 (red), B-3 (blue), C-6 (red), D-3 (red), E-6 (blue), F-1 (blue)
B-1 (red), B-3 (blue), B-5 (red), D-3 (red), D-5 (blue), F-1 (blue)
Start with Beat
Enter the password below to begin with Beat already unlocked:
B-1 (red), C-1 (blue), D-3 (red), D-4 (blue), F-5 (red), F-6 (blue)
You'll still need to tackle the robot masters, as usual, but now you don't have to worry about missing any letters as you clear their stages.
Enter the password indicated below and you'll start at the front gate to Protoman's castle.
B-4 (blue), C-1 (red), D-4 (red), D-6 (blue), F-1 (blue), F-6 (red)
There is no password to skip directly past this point, so you'll have to play through two sets of final stages all at once in order to reach the closing credits.
