|This page is about the Robot Master Aqua Man. To see information on his NetNavi counterpart, see AquaMan.EXE.|
Aqua Man (アクアマン Akuaman?) is a water-themed Robot Master created by Doctor Wily in Mega Man 8. Wily had ordered more parts than necessary for modifying Clown Man and intended to create Frost Man with the extra parts, but failed at creating an ice machine on his first attempt. Wily then converted the machine into a water tank, creating Aqua Man around it. He is one of the eight Robot Masters built to protect the barrier to "Wily Tower", and was put in an abandoned underwater laboratory off the east coast of Madagascar.
Designed with the ability to store water inside of himself and release it using a cannon on his arm, Aqua Man has the unique ability to control water. In order to attack, he can fire controllable jets of highly pressured water, or use his Special Weapon, the Water Balloon, to launch heavy spheres of water at his opponents. However, his internal water tanks are vulnerable to breakage from heavy impacts, especially from the Astro Crush's meteors.
Aqua Man seems to be some what flamboyant; evidenced by some of his taunts to Mega Man when encountering him, as well as using a rainbow to spell out his name. He is a mischievous and somewhat immature Robot Master, with a love for dirty jokes and puns and being something of an attention-seeker. He does not react well to serious situations however, and tends to be made fun of for his rather bulky design.
Video game appearances
Mega Man 8
Aqua Man is one of the second set of Robot Masters, serving as a guard to the Wily Tower's barrier. He can attack by shooting a spread of Water Balloons, shooting a stream of water with an opening Mega Man can hide in or by leaping and stomping the ground, causing a column of water to erupt under Mega Man. Using Astro Crush inflicts the most damage and knocks him out of his attack by breaking his tank, though without the Energy Saver part, the weapon alone doesn't have enough energy to defeat Aqua Man by itself.
Dr. Wily dispatches Aqua Man to Kazakhstan alongside Dive Man to aid Capricorn in his takeover of the Arctic Glaciomarine. He also appears in Dimensional Space as one of the Wily Capsule's backup units, the others being Skull Man, Bomb Man, and Sword Man.
