- "Mega Man: The Noise Crush generates a powerful sound wave, doesn't it?
Dr. Light: Yes, and you can amplify the wave by absorbing the reflected wave with your body."
- ―Mega Man and Dr. Light, Mega Man 7
Noise Crush, also known as Crash Noise and Crush Noise (クラッシュノイズ Kurasshu Noizu), is Shade Man's special weapon. It fires a powerful sound wave to damage enemies. If the wave hits a wall, it will bounce off it. If it comes in contact with Mega Man, he will charge automatically, and he can then discharge a powerful wave. The charged wave is larger and will do more damage to enemies.
In Mega Man 7, this weapon is Turbo Man's primary weakness and hitting him with repeated Noise Crush waves will prevent him from using his Scorch Wheel. If Noise Crush is fired as soon as the player enters the boss room, it will kill Turbo Man instantly. This bug also affects Spring Man and Cloud Man, although in Cloud Man's case it destroys the entire room and forces the player to reset the game.

- The Japanese word "Kurasshu" (クラッシュ) can be translated as both "Crush", "Crash" and "Clash". Because of this, the Noise Crush is called "Crash Noise" in Mega Man: The Power Battle (both English and Japanese versions) and "Crush Noise" in Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters (both versions) and the Japanese version of Mega Man 7.
- If the player fires the Noise Crush and slide immediately afterwards, Mega Man can absorb it without having to fire it against a wall. Note that this only applies to Mega Man 7. This has been fixed in both arcade games.
- Noise Crush is one of the only two sound based weapons, the other being Sonic Wave. Just like the aforementioned weapon, the Noise Crush can bounce off of walls, though in a different way than the Sonic Wave.
- In the Japanese version of Mega Man 7, Roll compares Noise Crush to Dr. Light's singing voice.
