Surumaker (スルメーカー Surumēkā) is a small cuttlefish squid-like enemy in Mega Man 8 and Mega Man & Bass. It mostly swims smoothly, but when it sees Mega Man, it moves quickly to his direction in a random pattern, causing its movement to be erratic. It makes an appearance in Aqua Man's and Pirate Man's stages.
Surumaker is a play of "surume", Japanese for cuttlefish squid. Alternatively, Surumēkā can also be translated as "Sour Maker".
