The Wanaan (ワナーン Wanān) is an indestructible trap robot created to catch intruders. It hides out in pipes and if Mega Man stands on a Wanaan pipe for too long, it will leap out with a snap to get him with its jaws. Wanaan is found in Hard Man's stage and Wily Stage 2 in Mega Man 3, and in Hard Man's stage in Mega Man II.
