How to Get Hadouken in Mega Man X
It’s one of the most iconic attacks in gaming, and if you needed another reason why X was the best Mega Man model of all time (fight me), he can even pull off the trademark technique of the Shotokan warriors. The Hadouken ability is hidden away in an obscure corner of the Armored Armadillo stage in Mega Man X, and you will have to fulfill a few prerequisites before you can acquire it. First, you must have collected all other upgrade capsules, heart tanks and sub tanks, and beaten all bosses prior to Sigma in Mega Man X. Consider the Hadouken almost endgame content, if you will.
Once you’ve managed all of that, progress through the Armored Armadillo stage until you near its end. Climb aboard the last cart (the one that takes you out of the cavern and flies through the air before the boss’ lair), and as it begins to descend, jump onto the wall and climb onto the ledge. You will have to time it well for a clean landing, though it is possible – albeit cumbersome – to reach the ledge if you misjudge your opportunity.
