―In-game text, Mega Man Maverick Hunter X

Nervous Ghost (ナーバスゴースト Nābasu Gōsuto) is a Shoulder-type laser weapon that Vile obtains by defeating Sting Chameleon and Spark Mandrill in Mega Man Maverick Hunter X. When equipped with this weapon, Vile fires a relatively thin green laser beam from this shoulder cannon. The player can aim this weapon in the same way they can aim Vile’s other shoulder weapons. This weapon inflicts average damage and the Weapon Energy consumption is moderate. As with the rest of Vile's other laser weapons, Nervous Ghost is capable of piercing enemy shields.

Nervous Ghost is Storm Eagle and Rangda Bangda's weakness. X takes a considerable amount of damage from this weapon as well.
