''Water-Human'' (orig. "Człowiek Woda") is a {{Machinima}} series, created in ''VideoGame/{{Gothic}} II'', which tells the adventures and exploits of the eponymous hero, who apparently "likes to rescue people", but the series instead tells the story of him going on a stroll around the world and the consequences of said stroll. It features a lot of silly humor.

The series was originally in Polish, but English subtitles are available on Website/YouTube.

The character also features in a [[ music video]].

[[ Episode 1]] - [[ Episode 2]] - [[ Episode 3]] - [[ Episode 4]]

!!This series provides examples of:

* ArtEvolution: The series becomes progressively more polished; interface elements stop popping up, and the HeadBob is phased out in favor of actual MouthFlaps (which are difficult to do in ''Gothic''.)
* AtomicFBomb: The Fire-Human, when [[spoiler:his game crashes and he has no savegame.]]
* BerserkButton: Don't call the Large Beetle "little".
* BigCreepyCrawlies: The Large Beetle, though he's friendly.
* BigNo: Twice, and [[ExaggeratedTrope very big ones]].
%%* BrainsAndBrawn: Waclaw and Bogdan.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: It's more or less hole-filled throughout the series, but comes crashing down at the end of episode four.
%%* CatsAreMean: Hovercat.
%%* CreepyMonotone: Hovercat.
%%* DisneyVillainDeath: [[spoiler:Waclaw]].
%%* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Spy]].
%%* DumbMuscle: Bogdan.
* ElementalEmbodiment: The Water-Human might be one, since [[spoiler:he actually has blue skin, and some narration in the ending song mentions he's made of nothing but water.]]
* EvenTheSubtitlerIsStumped: The ending of episode four, which depicts a very unintelligible conversation over Skype.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Really exaggerated with Fire-Human's servants.
* GutFeeling: Water-Human sees through the Spy's charade literally by guessing randomly.
** And the Beetle figures out the plot so far through nothing more than a hunch.
* HandWave: How the Beetle's reduction in size is explained. Apparently he [[MST3KMantra became smaller because of sea water]].
%%* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Bogdan]].
* HiddenDepths: The Beetle, who apparently has [[spoiler:PsychicPowers and [[BreathWeapon la]][[EnergyWeapon zors.]]]]
%%* HilariousOuttakes: End of episode two.
* KillItWithWater: Hovercat. It's a cat, so it fears water.
%%* MakingASplash: Water-Human.
%%* MediumAwareness: A couple of gags throughout the series.
* NoTitle: Episode four.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: Fire-Human, big time. He literally does nothing except sit on his throne and play ''Franchise/AceAttorney'', unaware that his nemesis Water-Human has been brought to his doorstep at one point.
* PlayingWithFire: The Fire-Human, and his cronies.
* PrecisionFStrike: Waclaw's reaction to when he's told that the Fire-Human refuses to see him now.
* ShoutOut: A lot of them - LeeroyJenkins, ''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'', ''Franchise/AceAttorney''.
* {{Squick}}: Water-Human's reaction to seeing the Wolf's [[HardGay last text message]]. [[invoked]]
* WackyWaysideTribe: Pretty much the entire episode two. Though David is later off-handedly integrated with the plot.
* WalkIntoCameraObstruction: Episode one has the villain walk into the screen at the end of one scene. The camera ends up partially glitching into his body.
%%* WanderingMinstrel: The Music-Human.
