A while back, I posted a story about the 10 most deadly Mega Man weapons to appear during the series's NES days. Now, however, it's time for 10 useless weapons. These were the 10 weapons I used the least each time I go through a Mega Man game.

These are in a random order as it's really hard to determine which one is the worst.

Gemini Laser(Mega Man 3)
This weapon is a slow moving weapon. It goes straight once you fire it, and if it hits a wall before an enemy, it bounces off the wall and goes that same degree you hit the wall with. So in other words, if you don't get a direct hit on the enemy, you have to be a physicist to figure out how you want to hit the enemy with this weapon.

Time Stopper(Mega Man 2)
This weapon had to be used all at once to freeze time. It only helped make one area slightly easier. This item did drain half of one enemy's power, but that was only if you could get past that same area mentioned earlier as they were both in the same stage. A vastly improved version was made in Mega Man IV.

Spark Shock(Mega Man 3)
This weapon from Mega Man 3 would just freeze enemies. It wasn't possible to switch to your arm cannon or another more useful item to finish the enemy off, and the enemy still did damage if you touched him. Basically it was a even worse version of the Time Stopper.

Hard Knuckle(Mega Man 3)
Although this was a powerful weapon, it was slow moving and it was hard to time to get a direct hit on some of the enemies it was really powerful on. You were better off just using a faster weapon that did less damage. The game had this weapon work best on bosses who were really quick and could elude this slow weapon.

Top Spin(Mega Man 3)
This is a special weapon that was tricky to use successfully. If you didn't get a direct hit on an enemy, you would take damage from it. This weapon was really only good versus two boss enemies, one of which is the very last boss.

Skull Barrier(Mega Man 4)

Trying to duplicate the success of the Leaf Shield from Mega Man 2, this weapon totally fails. When fighting the boss this weapon works well on, the projectiles are often hit by the weapon or you get damage done to you as well.

Star Crash(Mega Man 5)

See Skull Barrier, same complaints about this weapon.

Plant Barrier(Mega Man 6)

Another shield type weapon that has the same complaints.

Ice Slasher(Mega Man)

This weapon from the first game just froze your enemy and was pretty much like the Spark Shock from above.

Super Arm(Mega Man)

This weapon allows you to clear blocks from your path and chuck them at your enemy. This is easier said than done. It really was only helpful on one boss, but there was a part of Dr. Wily's castle that required the Super Arm.

Someone really hates megaman 3.
I don't hate Mega Man 3, in fact that's one of my favorite games. It just has a bunch of weapons I hardly ever use.
