Megaman's Rush Armors in the Megaman Games

Megaman 6-7 presented the following armor which Rush could combine with Megaman.  These were:


Megaman 6 had the Power Megaman Mode.  Rush would combine with Megaman to form into Power Megaman.  In this form, while it has a short-range blast, he cannot slide but he can use the charged up attack to break bricks.  It may have inspired the Gaea Armor in Megaman X5 and the Shadow Armor in Megaman X6 but this form was NOT immune to spikes!


The other form was called the Jet Megaman.  Rush combines with Megaman, allowing him to fly for a limited period of time then it automatically refuels itself.  I wish this was used during the Rush levels in Megaman 8 instead of riding the Rush Jet.  May have inspired the Falcon Armor in Megaman X5.


Megaman 7 featured Megaman getting the letters RUSH from the first four stages of the game.  Once completed, Megaman can become Super Megaman with a powerful rocket punch (an upgrade gives it homing capabilities).  It's almost like the template for Megaman X where X must find four different pieces of armor.  The problem here is that Megaman cannot slide so it's fortunate he can remove this.
