Zero in the Ending
There are two hidden features in the ending, which are triggered from different variables. The first and most obvious difference is whether or not all of Zero's parts were collected from the X-Hunters; if the player didn't collect them, Zero will be fought and a black copy of Zero will appear in the ''Thanks for playing!!'' screen, but if they were found then Zero will not be a boss and the real one will take the fake's place. Another difference is whether or not the player collected any upgrades from capsules - if Mega Man X has no additional armor, Zero will appear for a moment when the cast roll transitions to the boss list, otherwise he will be missing (hearts and tanks are not factored).

This will work with almost any enemy that can be frozen with the Crystal Hunter. Freeze the enemy with a normal shot then pause the game. Now at the pause menu select the X. Buster and hit start. The enemy that was frozen will no longer be there.

Harmless Sigma/Red X-Buster
To do this trick, you must have all of Zero's parts and the Flaming Dragon Punch. First, go to the last Sigma stage. Right before you enter the room where Sigma drops in, stop. Dragon Punch your way in and try to land where Zero will punch his hole after the dialogue. If done correctly, X will fall through the hole when Zero punches it out. When Zero starts talking, do not let his dialogue disappear. Leave it there until X lands in Sigma's room. When Sigma enters, make Zero's dialogue go away and X should be able to walk over to Sigma. Have X stand right by Sigma, and when Sigma begins to fill up his energy meter, Dragon Punch him.When the fight begins, Sigma should not be able to harm you no matter what he does, making it easy for you to conserve you SubTanks and energy for the second battle. Also, this glitch makes your charged shots look a vibrant reddish-pink color.It will stay this way until the second Sigma battle begins. Also, using the Giga Crush causes your X-Buster shots to go back to their original color.

Ken's Shoryuken Pre-Unlocked
In addition to being unlockable by the separately described method, Ken's Shoryuken can be obtained by combining a password with a specific button combination. On the password entry screen, set the password to one of the following:
1172 3367 6182 3246 (all obtainables except Zero parts, plus the Shoryuken)
8377 8143 6822 7651 (all obtainables plus the Shoryuken)
In order for the Shoryuken part of the password to work, the password must be submitted by holding down-left, R, B, and Y together. First move the password cursor to the bottom line of the password (above Start), then press and hold down (which moves the cursor to Start), left, R, B, and finally Y.

The arm parts in Mega Man X2 are in Wheel Gator's stage. In order to get the arm parts, you must first defeat Wire Sponge. Then see the open space in the Dinosaur Tank, use Wire Sponge's power-up there. Once you did that, you'll get the arm parts.

Stronger Normal Shot
If you dash then fire a normal shot, it will deal doube damage to the enemy. It saves the charging time. It still does double damage also if you do dash-jump or air-dash instead of dash only.

2x Jump Trick
This trick needs the arm part and foot part upgrade. Firstly, charge the upgraded buster shot until full (or at least until it can shoot 2 shots), then release the first charged shot. Then, jump up and quickly fire the second charged shot, dash, and jump again. You may just have done the second jump.

Megaman can use Ken's Shoryuken if you get all of the energy tanks, all of the hearts, and all of X's parts. The capsule for the shoryuken is in the third x-hunter stage (Agile). At one point in his stage, there is a ladder with many bats around. Use the Crystal Hunter to crystalize a bat to reach the ladder. Follow the path until you reach a downward path. Scroll on the left side of the path until X discovers a passage. You must be at full power for the capsule to appear. Dr. Light will give you Ken's Shoryuken.
