The marine MS are the most specific MS during the OYW. Despite their
really weird shape, they do serve one purpose, it works underwater. The
clawed hands can moved much more freely than the humanoid hand of
reguliar MS. Remember, form follows function rule.

And then of course, you got Cima's OYW collection of Marine Gelgoog. The
coolest Gelgoog of them all.
