This article is about the Special Weapon. For the Battle Chip, see Pengi.

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.

In Mega Man 10, the third Weapons Archive accesses Frost Man's data and uses the Ice Wave.

  • 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.

Other media

In the Rockman 8 manga, Mega Man used Ice Wave to defeat Aqua Man by freezing the water in his body. He also used it against Sword Man to create an ice sword and to freeze him.
