|Artwork of Croaker from Mega Man 2.|
Croaker (also known as Kerog) is a frog robot, with the ability to spawn Petit Kerogs. Croaker was a robot that was originally a member of the underwater robot carnival, but was repurposed for combat by Dr. Wily. They are enemies that originate from Mega Man 2 from Bubble Man's stage.
When a Croaker spawns, it will launch three Petit Kerogs from its mouth at three different angles. If at least one Petit Kerog is alive, all on-screen Croakers will do nothing until they are all despawned or destroyed. If all three Petit Kerogs are either despawned or destroyed, an on-screen Croaker will spit out three more Petit Kerogs. If the Croaker is underwater, the Petit Kerogs will be launched higher and will jump higher.
Petit Kerogs have 1 HP and deal 1 HP contact damage. As frog-based enemies, they jump towards the player. They remain in the same place for a while before doing their jump.
If the player gets behind Croaker, it will turn around to face the player.
