Trivia

Although they weren't in the PlayStation version of Mega Man 8, if you play the Saturn version of this game, you'll run into two old foes making cameo appearances, and even going to fight you again! Who are these two foes? None other than Cut Man (from Mega Man 1) and Wood Man (from MM2)! Cut Man appears in the intermission stage after you beat the first four Wily Robots, and Wood Man appears as a mini-boss in Seach Man's stage.
