Due to cost reduction from Dr. Wily, it is unable to move, appearing twice in Bubble Man's stage as a sub-boss. It deals considerable contact damage. It can only be damaged by attacking his antenna. He attacks by releasing Shrinks (Small shrimp-like robots) from the mouth.

One Anko appears as a sub-boss in Mega Water S's Stage in Mega Man: The Wily Wars.
