Trying to run away while underwater gives the following message if you don't have enough diving ability:

You'd have a shot on land, but there's no way you can swim fast enough to get away underwater.

Fighting to a draw while underwater gives the following message:

You're both exhausted by the time you wrap up, heading your separate ways underwater.

You cannot use metallic oil while underwater.
