Crescent Shot (クレッセントショット Kuressento Shotto), C-Shot for short, is the Special Weapon Mega Man X receives from beating Crescent Grizzly in Mega Man X5. Its normal shot is a crescent blade that is randomly shot either straight, slightly up, or slightly down. Up to three Crescent Shots can be on the screen at a time. Charged up, it surrounds X in a shield of energy crescents that destroys most enemies it touches. The energy shield lasts up to ten seconds before it disappears.

This weapon is the weakness of Tidal Whale and Rangda Bangda W's green eye.
