|First appearance||Donkey Kong (1994)|
An Aqua Man is an enemy in Donkey Kong for the Game Boy. They resemble short humanoid creatures wearing a diving suit. They first appear in Stage 3-3 on the Ship. Aqua Men only walk around horizontally, changing direction once they encounter a platform's bounds or a wall, and if Mario runs into them, he will lose a life. He can hop on them and hitch a ride as the creatures stroll. To defeat an Aqua Man, it has to be heaved and thrown at another enemy; alternatively, it can be crushed with a hammer.

Let's lift it up and hit it.
Aqua Man is wearing a diving suit, but he is always walking around inside the ship. You can't touch him from the side, but you can get on top of him, so lift him up and hit him to knock him down.
