VolGear (ボルケルギア Borukerugia) is a virus appearing in the games Mega Man Battle Network and Mega Man Battle Network 4. When in battle, VolGear viruses move on the two panels not aligned with MegaMan. When attacking, the viruses open their clenched jaws and release a homing fire tower. In Mega Man Battle Network 4, the EX versions open their jaws and three random panels will flash, engulfing them in fire towers. During their attack process, these viruses do not teleport if the player moves to the same row, resulting in the window of opportunity for attack. In Mega Man Battle Network, there was an Aqua variant of this virus, which attacked with water towers instead.
VolGear have a grey colored body and hat, red flames for limbs, and a red colored face.
VolGear2 (ウォルタルギア Worutarugia) have a light-grey colored body and hat, blue flames for limbs, and a blue colored face. They only appeared in the first Mega Man Battle Network game, and unlike all the other member of VolGear family who are Fire attributes, VolGear2 are actually Aqua attributes, whose attack is a water tower instead of a fire one.
VolGearEX have a purple colored body and hat, red flames for limbs, and a red colored face.
