what does the rank you get at the end of the level mean? by rank i mean the S, A, B, C, D, F, not the title which i assume is just for bragin rights.

It simply means how good you did in that level.

Uhh no. If you get an A or S you learn a bosses special moves.

is it the grade you go into the boss fight that matters or the grade that you get after you bear the boss with that gets you the boss skill?

The grade you have when fighting a boss matters. For example, when you have either A or S and beat a boss, you get his skill.

so if beat the preivous mission with a grade less than a B, that mean i cant get the special attack from the next boss? is there a way i can improve my grade other loading and restarting my save file?

Uh..The only one i can think of is using certain Cyber Elves that gives you an A rank automatically.

They are scattered around the stages in fixed ocations. So use a guide from gamefaqs or something.

One thing to note though, if you are intending to get all special skills, do NOT use elves that boost your powers permanently. For example, permanent health boosts. Its because it will stay in your record forever in the 'Cyber Elves Used' section. I made this mistake once and all i can ever get is a 'F' rank even if i clear a stage with no damage at the fastest time.

The elves that boost your rank to 'A'arent permanent though, so go ahead and use them.
