Electric Shock (エレクトリックショック Erekutorikku Shokku) is Jupiter's special weapon from Mega Man V. Mega Man sends out a short-range electrical bolt from his hand, damaging anything that gets in its way. It can be used continuously. Each electric bolt lasts for approximately one second, and Mega Man is unable to walk while using it, but he can jump in any direction.

This weapon is Saturn's primary weakness, and it can cancel his Black Hole attack. It has no effect against Uranus and L. Knuckle and R. Knuckle.

  • For Electric Shock, this weapon strikes twice for most bosses when the B button is only pressed. The damage listed is the amount of damage the weapon inflicts while the weapon is activated per hit - not the total amount of damage per hit.
    • In the case of Mercury, Quint and Brain Crusher's second phase, the player is only allowed to hit them on the first hit before the weapon shuts off abruptly.


Activating Electric Shock uses one weapon energy unit. With a full weapon energy gauge, it can be used nineteen times. With the Power Generator obtained however, activating Electric Shock will use only half an energy unit -- it can be activated up to thirty-eight times with a full weapon energy gauge.


  • Due to the continuous nature of this weapon, if Mega Man jumps onto a ladder while Electric Shock is in use, the bolt will continue to fire, causing Mega Man to grab the ladder with one hand.
