02) Aquaman

Nope, not THAT Aquaman. The first Aquaman, introduced in Megaman 8 was a pretty fun design to be honest. And while turning the valve on the chest to fire the arm cannon (that had it’s own valve) made zero sense, the animation was really fun whenever it happened.

But all that fun is nothing compared to the absolute joy that is Aquaman from Battle Network. This tiny little hyperactive thing is wonderful. And while it looks like a being of pure joy, your expression is anything but when it conjures a massive water cannon that lays waste to an entire row of the battle board.

Aquaman looks like emojis that are finally able to get their revenge.

01) Punk

This one is a wacky one. Punk is one of Mega Man creator, Keiji Inafune’s favorite of his own creations. In fact, when the Battle Network games were being made he was so desperate to see Punk get the cool Battle Network treatment that he actually drew his own reference images that he sent to Battle Network designer Yuji Ishihara for ideas.

One of the cool things about this is that they took a preexisting character and made some solid changes to it on all fronts while also allowing it to maintain its signature look. This remaster, while not to wildest, is a labor of love that goes all the way back to the original Mega Man creator which makes this really cool. Plus, that torso design is so weird that it just makes it wonderful.

So? What did you think of the list? Was there one that should have been on here that we left out or missed? Was there one that just deserved an honorable mention? Are you going to lie and say Snake Man’s Battle Network design was good? Either way, let us know in the comments!
