Ice Wave (アイスウェーブ Aisu Wēbu) is Frost Man's Special Weapon from Mega Man 8. When equipped, Mega Man fires an icicle, which upon hitting the ground, will send a flow of ice along the floor until it hits a wall. It can freeze enemies (and some take damage by it), and it can even freeze the lava fountains in Sword Man's stage.
Ice Wave is Tengu Man's weakness. As well as inflicting a considerable amount of damage against him while active and negating any Tornado Holds he creates, Ice Wave also has an added affect of freezing Tengu Man in place the moment his feet touches the ground, allowing Mega Man to fire extra shots at him.

- For Bliking, it is the only boss in Mega Man 8 to take a different amount of damage from each strike from the Ice Wave (2 units of damage, the first strike; 1 the second time; 2, 1, 2, etc.), hence the data value in its field above is listed in fraction form.
- Cut Man and Wood Man are available only in the Sega Saturn version of Mega Man 8.
- The color scheme of Ice Wave bears a striking resemblance to the color scheme use for Mega Man on the North American box art of Mega Man.
