Goo Shaver, known as Gel Shaver (ジェルシェイバー Jeru Sheibā) in Japan, is the Special Weapon that Mega Man X gains from defeating Tidal Whale in Mega Man X5. In normal fire, X sends out a small wave of icy gel on the floor. This weapon is capable of only scaling down walls and will disappear if it hits an enemy. Up to three Goo Shavers can be on the screen at a time. Charged up, X launches a row of ice blocks - four on each side - in front and behind him which go up in the air then go down until they are off the screen. This weapon is needed to get the Falcon Armor's Body Part.

This weapon is the primary weakness for Volt Kraken and Rangda Bangda W's sun-like component.
