M-422A is an enemy from Mega Man 4. It is an armoured aquatic survey robot resembling a jellyfish.
M-422A returned in Make a Good Mega Man Level 2, where it appeared in the entry The Dampening, as well as the Wily Star II stage Reality Core, the Tier X stage Metallic Ocean, and the Pit of Pits sublevels "Metroid: Zero Mission" and "Ocean Sickness".
M-422A idly floats in one spot, diving down if Mega Man gets close enough to it in an effort to crash into him. Once it hits a surface, it will float back up to where it started, whereupon it repeats the process. Notably, M-445 is completely invincible against all weapons; Mega Man is forced to move around it instead of dispatching it.
