I didn't remember you could only carry 4 E-tanks in MM2.

As far as MM4 bosses are concerned, they aren't all that hard if you take advantage of their weaknesses by using subweapons and there are a lot of E-tanks at the end, actually you can get 9 E-tanks when you respawn after a game over... Which is not a very bright design choice. But still come in handy. In that regard, yes, MM4 has a lot of E-tanks.

I don't know why you are trying to explain to me that MM5 bosses aren't hard since I never said they were hard but OK...
Mega Man 5, your charge shot is so big, it really doesn't matter. Whenever I play the game, I never run low on weapon energy, unless it is the end-game boss rush.
That is what I said... It is meant to be played buster only aside from some bosses where subweapons can come in handy. While it can be seemed as an issue, which I kind of agree with since subweapons are part of MM's design, I don't think it is such a big deal. I often don't use subweapons or run out of energy in other MM games.

The biggest problem with MM5 is that there is no ramp-up in difficulty, which is pretty easy overall, aside from a few segments (like the jet ski section in Wave man's stage or a few cheaply designed platforming sections in dark man's stages) which makes the game unbalanced.

Therefore the flaws of this game are far from being linked to E-tanks or subweapons but more linked to the difficulty curve.

However I don't consider this game being tedious, there is still a good flow. And ironically it feels like most appreciated levels in MMM are MM5 like...

Mega Man 4 has the best music
I think Mega Man 4 has the most unbalanced soundtrack of them all. Some of the tracks are amazingly good (Cossack 3/4, Wily stages, Bright/Pharaoh/Dust) while others suffer a bit (I particularly don't like Ring Man's theme, and the boss theme is way too short and repetitive... at least it sounds like a boss theme). The soundtrack has all kinds of weird non-megamanish sounding choices, like Picardy thirds everywhere, weird harmony sections that sound like they didn't know what they were doing (Ring Man, part of Dust Man), and using lots of 6th intervals for harmony instead of 4ths (compare most of the GB track versions to the NES ones, like the beginning of Dive Man).

The NES one does sound a lot more detailed to me and has some neat stuff going on, and I enjoy it, but it doesn't really sound like a Mega Man track to me other than I know it's from MM4 :P

You guys think MM2, 4 and 5 are giving too many E-Tanks? Check out MM3! It has to be the MM game that gives you THE MOST E-Tanks out of them all! There's one in Needle Man's stage, one in Hard Man's, one in Gemini Man's, and like 20 of them spread across the Wily Castle!

Even Mega Man 3's PWD system is flawed. It's super simple and it can be cracked easily.
Do not listen to the other Brazencoronet17/18s. They are fake accounts that represents somebody who is not incredibly masculine and sexy.

Even more, if you get more than 9, it looks like you didn't collect them, but it turns out the counter just never goes up, and you can still use the E Tanks.
