Shrink (シュリンク Shurinku) is a shrimp robot found strictly in Bubble Man's stage. They usually appear near Ankos, which can release many Shrinks from its mouth. They attack Mega Man by swimming in his direction. Metal Blade, Bubble Lead, Crash Bomber, charged Atomic Fire, and Leaf Shield all kill them in one shot.

They also appear in Mega Water S's stage in Mega Man: The Wily Wars.

  • For unknown reasons, in-game, the side of Shrink's tail is orange, and the top of the tail is red; but in the artwork, the colors are reversed.
