Forgotten Area[2] is Plant Man's stage in Mega Man 6.


The stage is set in a rainforest environment and contains many animal-themed enemies. It is largely horizontal, but features many springs and pits in its second half.


The stage begins with a short section on solid ground, which has Heli Butons dropping out of trees and a Batabattan hiding in grass. At the end of it is a large Energy item and 1 UP, both of which require Power Mega Man to obtain, and ladder going up.

The ladder leads to an intermediary room with only a Power Slam, then another ladder leads further up. Propeller Eyes and simple Tadahous can be found in this short bit, before Mega Man drops down again to receive a random gift from Eddie and finally drop to the first Gorilla Tank miniboss.

After the miniboss, the rest of the stage is completely horizontal. Springs on the floor are introduced here, which cause Mega Man to bounce constantly and allow him to bounce higher while holding the jump button; they are then combined with a few enemies, and the second set is placed underneath floating spikeballs, though Mega Man will typically only reach them if the jump button is held while bouncing. After a chance to acquire two large Weapon Energy pick-ups with Power Mega Man, the stage then leads into a second, identical Gorilla Tank miniboss fight.

Following the second miniboss is the start of a long section mostly made of narrow rock pillars, some with springs on top, and water-filled pits between them. Jet Butons emerge from the sides here, while Gabgyos will suddenly jump from the pits when approached, with both enemies able to knock Mega Man off.

The final part of the stage is notable for sometimes placing Tadahou cannons on springs, causing them to bounce up and down perpetually while shooting. A unique kind of "closed" platform also appears here, which hovers in the air with a propeller and must first be shot in its central gem to open up and allow Mega Man to stand on it. These are complimented by flowers growing on the foliage in the background, which contain small Energy pellets in the centre that Mega Man can snatch up like any other item.

Finally, after a stretch of two-tile wide pillars with springs, the boss doors await, leading to an in-door fight with Plant Man.

  • This is the only stage in Mega Man 6 that has two identical miniboss fights; other minibosses either use a different room layout for each fight (Metall Potton) or only appear once (Gamarn and Gamadayu).
