Game History

Mega Man Battle Network 4

MegaMan is matched up against AquaMan in the first tournament. Lan Hikari and MegaMan befriend AquaMan and his operator Shuko Kido. After getting acquainted, the game shows a conversation between Shuko and her brothers about the brother's earning enough to replace Shuko's old washing machine. The way that the machine was described however, AquaMan misunderstood and assumed that they were talking about replacing him with another NetNavi. In his state of being upset, AquaMan ran away from Shuko and began crying alone in the Internet. Blinded by his tears, AquaMan took no notice that he was unintentionally flooding the net and in turn shutting down the area. Shuko asked Lan for help, providing MegaMan with an item to allow him to survive the damages of the water for a prolonged time. MegaMan found AquaMan and tried to explain the mishap to him, but he didn't listen and took off with MegaMan in pursuit. Eventually, MegaMan was able to tell AquaMan the full story and AquaMan was quick to restore the net to normal and return to Shuko. After everything was sorted out, AquaMan apologized and they returned to the Den Dome and began their match. When MegaMan proved victorious, his and AquaMan's soul connected providing MegaMan with Aqua Soul.

AquaMan's emblem

  • Aqua Bomb: AquaMan fires a Bubble Shot that will always hit two squares ahead. It spreads to just behind the point of impact. In BN6, the shot will crack the panel where it first hits. This attack was called Bubble Shot in BN4.
  • Aqua Spout: AquaMan summons two taps, which will fire jets of water at the player if he lines up with them. Used only in BN4 (sometimes in the front center row).
  • Aqua Bomb: AquaMan throws a bomb at the player, and it spreads from the point of impact in a + formation (similar to the Geyser battle chip), or it spreads to all adjacent panels surrounding it, depending on the boss version. Used only in BN4.
  • Aqua Stream: AquaMan pulls out a hose and fires it at the player three times (unless intreupted). The hose fires in a T-shaped fashion. Used only in BN6, where it was translated as Spout Hose.
  • Drip Shower: AquaMan spins around and appears in the player's area, hitting two opposite panels in the 8 panels surrounding him. This forces the player to circle AquaMan to avoid damage. This is the attack used in his Battle Chip. Used only in BN6.
