"From the deep oceans a long lost civilization appears! Their extreme isolation has given them special aquatic abilities that are unknown to the other more human tribes.
Aquarion have a slightly different tech tree and have access to the unique amphibious turtle units that no other tribe can train."

  • Aquarion’s special units formerly did not receive a defence bonus in cities, but in the update that introduced the Fortify skill, the Amphibian and the Tridention were given the Fortify skill. (The Crab, like other super units, does not have the Fortify skill.)
  • According to the web shop, the Aquarion's favourite drink is a mixture of salt water and octopus blood that is usually drunk by their warriors before going to battle.
  • While in beta testing, Aquarion started with the Aquatism tech.

  • In the ambience which plays throughout Aquarion lands, the sound of the sea and calm music are heard.
  • Despite having a movement stat of 2, the Amphibian and the Tridention can only move one tile per turn on land. However, they can use Roads: with Roads, then can travel up to four tiles per turn on land.
