''VideoGame/MegaManAndBass'' was released on the SuperFamicom in 1998 as a GaidenGame to ''VideoGame/MegaMan8''. [[NoExportForYou It was only released in Japan]] under its Japanese title, ''Rockman & Forte'', since the SNES was dead everywhere else in the world by that time. It was eventually ported to the GameBoyAdvance in 2003 where it saw a Western release.

* FragileSpeedster: Bass has this handicap in contrast to Mega Man. Bass has the advantage of a double jump, dash jump and the ability to shoot diagonally out of the starting gate. But as a tradeoff, he can't shoot while running (although he can while jumping), he takes twice as much damage, and his rapid fire Bass Buster can't shoot through walls, and is very weak against bosses.

* MightyGlacier: Mega Man is this to Bass. He moves slow as molasses compared to the double jump and dash equipped Bass, and can only shoot left or right. But his chargeable Mega Buster packs more of a wallop than the Bass Buster and can shoot through walls, and he's more resilient to damage.

** The Game Boy Advance port unwittingly makes playing as Bass even ''harder'' due to his dash move not having a button mapped to it--that slight split second difference between the SNES dash button and the GBA "Tap left/right twice" will give you a ''lot'' of grief.

** Most of the boss fights outside of Green Devil and Cold Man are grueling to fight, ''especially'' if you fight them without their weakness. Dynamo Man is just a sample of how cruel the game can get--besides his annoying attack pattern, he can heal himself on a whim, and attack you while he's still healing. And if you do get his health low enough, he'll pull a DesperationAttack on you that is very hard to dodge.

Unless you have super reflexes and a lot of patience with how often he regenerates, the battle will really feel like a LuckBasedMission.

** Cold Man, one of the first Robot Masters you fight, is also the easiest of them in the game. The game only gets harder from then on out.

** The second Wily level really takes the cake; you have to fight ''three'' bosses in a row, and the third one has a whopping three forms.
