Aquatic Heartless that slowly wade through the skies and unleash water attacks.
Kingdom Hearts III
These watery wizards swim through the air with the grace of the majestic trout. Before casting magic, they'll come to a stop and summon spheres of water, leaving themselves open to attack.

Think fast if they do start conjuring, because the speed of their spells is no joke!

Nothing dries them up faster than a zap of Thunder magic. If you've got the MP to spare, use it to give 'em a thousand-volt jolt!

The Marine Rumba is an Emblem Heartless that appears in Kingdom Hearts III.

Design[edit]

The Marine Rumba has a smooth, conical blue body, with lighter blue dots lining it, with the Heartless symbol on its chest. The top of its body flares outward and forms a "collar" of sorts, covering its pitch black head with its white and blue hat. Like many Heartless, it has glowing yellow eyes, and like many of its relatives, two seemingly useless feet with three thin toes.

Like other Heartless in its family, the Marine Rumba's name comes from a color-marine, a shade of blue- and a musical term-rumba, a term used to describe several types of music, but most commonly referring to Cuban or Cubanized types of dance in Latin America.

Strategy[edit]

Kingdom Hearts III[edit]

Marine Rumbas are easy to defeat. Their attacks take a long time to charge up, and they can be easily canceled if Sora attacks them before they fire their water shot. If Sora wishes to fight at a distance, Thunder magic is perfect as not only do they take extra damage from it, but Thunder attacks will also cause their water spheres to vanish. Their water spheres will also vanish if inflicted with the Freeze status effect, though Blizzard attacks deal no extra damage. Their Water Snipe attack will allow the usage of Risk Dodge if blocked.
