List of ideas/planned achievements:
- Beat the boss (15)
- Beat mini-bosses using only the Mega Buster (?) [Can remember 3, there might be more, but Bass is in this category]
- Beat the boss using only the Mega Buster (14) [Wily 1 boss is impossible to Mega Buster only on]
- Beat the game without upgrades (1)
- Collect all screws (1)
- Beat Wily 1 boss without destroying any of the other objects (1)
- Beat Wily 2 boss without extra weapons from Mega Man's friends (1)
- Wily 3 boss special condition... (1)
- Wily special condition... (1)
- Clear snowboard sections without taking damage (2) [Might need revision depending on how checkpoints are handled]
- Get secret 1-up in Clown Man's stage (1)

Just a rough idea about achievements until it is possible to revise them during development, numbers in '()' are how many of that achievement there could be:
Beat the boss (15)
Beat mini-bosses using only the Mega Buster (?) [Can remember 3, there might be more, but Bass is in this category]
Beat the boss using only the Mega Buster (14) [Wily 1 boss is impossible to Mega Buster only on]
Beat the game without upgrades (1)
Collect all screws (1)
Beat Wily 1 boss without destroying any of the other objects (1)
Beat Wily 2 boss without extra weapons from Mega Man's friends (1)
Wily 3 boss special condition... (1)
Wily special condition... (1)
Clear snowboard sections without taking damage (2) [Might need revision depending on how checkpoints are handled]

I played this game a lot, so maybe i'll be able to help with ideas for achievements.
1 - Beat any boss using only mega ball
maybe this a silly and annoying achievement, but it's fairly possible if you can reach the boss with mega ball weapon energy full and energy saver. Just an idea.
2 - Beat X boss without taking damage (8 normal bosses + 1 intro stage)
IMO is only a good idea to have damageless achievement for those, so the game isn't flooded with achievements.
3 - Destroy an ice block (Name: Ice Buster (?))
So, this isn't really something important, but it's interesting to have this one in the set, for progression. IDK how this can be handled for the achievement code, but there is only ice blocks in frostman.
4 - Build the x (Energy Balancer, Laser Shot, Arrow Shot, Energy Saver, High Speed Charge and Boost Part) upgrade in Dr. Light's Lab (6)
So, this is interesting and i think don't should be missed. Each upgrade will have its achievement, worth 2 points each. Also, i mention these items specifically, because 1 - You can't have all upgrades from Dr. Light's Lab and 2 - Those upgrades change more Megaman when equipped, so i thought that would make sense to have a achievement to specifically those.
I'll update if i have more ideas.
About the game sub-bosses, there is 5, in Grenademan, Swordman, Clownman, Aquaman and Duo. Bass is considered a boss, because he does have a healthbar. As for Duo, he isn't a boss because he doesn't have a healthbar.

-Finish Flash Bomb Puzzle at Sword Man's Temple without using the Flash Bomb
-Finish Ice Wave Puzzle at Sword Man's Temple without using the Ice Wave
-In the Tornado Hold Puzzle at Sword Man's Temple, open the 3rd lock without using Tornado Hold
-Finish Snow Board Section at Wily 1 without any special weapon
-Clear the game without spending a single Bolt
-Beat Green Devil in 2 cycles
-Beat Grenade Man's Mid Boss without letting him dive
-Pass through Clown Man's Final Bell Puzzle in less than X beats
-Finish Grenade Man's Stage after blowing up the fewer number of platforms
-Finish the Rush Jet Section at Wily 2 without destroying any enemy (you would earn it before the Boss Fight)
-Finish the Underground Section at Intro Stage without swimming (Mega Ball Jump required)
-Beat Grenade Man without letting him blow up the floor
That's it, I'm sorry if I got too excited.
