|Not to be confused with Spark Shot.|
Spark Shock (スパークショック Supāku Shokku) is Spark Man's Special Weapon. Its system generates an energy ball that can short-circuit electronic components, temporarily paralyzing enemies. However, it is not effective against robots with insulated coating. As such, a few enemies, like Magnet Man, can be damaged by this weapon.
Video game appearances
Spark Shock is obtained by defeating Spark Man and can be used to paralyze enemies, and in some cases, damage them. The trade-off is that only two enemies can be stunned at a time, and Mega Man cannot change weapons while there's one stunned.
Buster Rod. G and the second form of the Wily Machine are immune to it.
Like Mega Man 3, this weapon is obtained after defeating Spark Man and can be used to paralyze enemies; however, Mega Man is now able to switch weapons while enemies are stunned. This can come in very handy when dealing with Shield Attackers and Jumbigs.
The Spark Shock is the last Special Weapon obtained by Mega Man in the game. It is Ra Thor's weakness.
The Spark Shock is used by Mega Man in the fighting game Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, where it appears as his Up Smash move.
Instead of using one Buster to fire spark-like projectiles, he transforms both of his Busters into long electrodes, similar to those of Spark Man himself, which he uses to emit a powerful burst of electricity above him that hits opponents multiple times, dealing a total of 15% if all hits connect (20% if fully charged). Since Mega Man uses both Busters to perform the attack however, there is a brief animation afterward showing him venting the excess heat from his arms afterward, much like when he uses his Flame Blast Down Smash.
Spark Shock uses one weapon energy unit in Mega Man 3 and Mega Man III. With a full weapon energy gauge, it can be used 28 times in Mega Man 3 and 19 times in Mega Man III.
