The Aquarion are the 11th tribe in Polytopia and the first special tribe. The Aquarion start off with no technology, but instead three tribe-specific units: the Amphibian, the Tridention and the Crab, replacing the Rider, Knight and Giant, respectively. They resemble the ancient Atlantis culture, conceived by the Greek mythology.

In-game description:

"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."

  • If you convert an Amphibian, Tridention, or Crab, it will say [tribe] Amphibian, Tridention, or Crab, respectively.
  • It is the first "Special" tribe in Polytopia, with its own section below the human tribes.
  • Converted Aquarion Knights and Riders have slightly larger turtles than Amphibians and Tridentions.
  • Aquarion’s special units do not get a defence bonus in cities, yet they get a defence bonus in tech-specific terrain once that tech is researched.
  • 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, several sounds are heard. These sounds are the sound of the sea and of calm music being continously played in the background.
