Wanaan is a gimmick from Mega Man 3, first found in Hard Man's stage. It is a large bear trap-like security robot that hides in vents.

Wanaans were first made available in the devkit for the original Make a Good Mega Man Level, where it appeared in the entries Wily Combo (with a unique sprite) and Maze of Death. In The Arena, Wanaans appear as one of Zero Soul's attacks, referencing their use in Wily Combo; in Make a Good Mega Man Level Remastered, they are omitted from the Zero Soul fight, but appear in the remade Flashback Database with their Wily Combo appearance.

Wanaans returned in Make a Good Mega Man Level 2, appearing in the entries Cardinal Man, Gigavolt Man, Dragon Lab Lair, Chomp Man, Quint Stage, Ruined Lab, and Escape Sequence, as well as the Wily stage Reality Core, and the Pit of Pits sublevels "Hot Mess" and "WIIIILLLLLLDDDDD West". They also appeared in the Make a Good 24 Hour Mega Man Level entry Breaking Ground, and the Make a Good Mega Man Level: Episode Zero levels Abandoned Lab and Ice Breaker.

Behavior[edit]

Wanaans hide in large vents. If Mega Man stands on one such vent for even a moment, a Wanaan will quickly pop up to bite him before retreating back inside. Wanaans are completely immune to weapons.
