The Water Cannon, known in Japan as the Mizudeppō (ミズデッポー), is one of three Gadgets introduced in Ape Escape 2. It is a gadget used is a cannon that sprays a stream of water which can be used to put out fires, stun Monkeys and defeat some enemies.


The Water Cannon fits over the player's right arm and looks similar to a blue fire hydrant with a faucet knob on top. When the gadget is in use, the front of the hydrant opens like a lid and the knob spins as the stream of water is fired out.


The Water Cannon has the ability to put out fires. Without this Gadget, the player cannot walk through it. To use it, rotate the Right Analog Stick to spray water, and use the Left Analog Stick to move around. The Water Cannon can also be used to repair damaged vehicles, such as the tank.
