So, it turns out that Ice Man's Ice Breath ability has a potentially game breaking side effect.
If a member of your team gets KO'd while being Frozen by it, it'll still linger on that team member for the rest of the battle--I found this out the hard way when I used an Extra Life on Bass during the battle I just had with Cut Man and Ice Man in Light Chapter 4.
Now, it was a lengthy and woolly battle as it was leading up to the point where the game break occurred. Cut Man was down, as was both Fleas and the Peng. Of the 4 that I brought into this fight--Proto Man, Bass, Time Man and Mega Man--only an extremely weak Mega Man and a newly revived [and Frozen] Bass remained on my side, and Ice Man's HP was in the yellow. I really could've sworn that I'd have this.
Now, I'd have had Mega tag Bass into the battle, but, Bass was Frozen. Unable to act. So, I had no choice but to allow Ice Man to KO Mega Man.
Cue the game break; The team selection Menu popped up with all 4 of my team transparent. Bass, included. His Frozen status hadn't worn out yet, and because I couldn't bring him in, I was stuck in purgatory, only 1 or 2 Turns away from winning.
It's also worth mentioning that I'd burned 2 Energy Tanks and the aforementioned Extra in this fight, and, so far as I can see, they're all gone.
So, yeah, never use an Extra on a Frozen team member unless there's more than one other surviving member of your team.
.....my luck sucks. -_____-
