Spike Ball, known as Spike Rope (スパイクロープ Supaiku Rōpu) in Japan, is the Special Weapon that X gains from defeating Spike Rosered in Mega Man X5. Its standard shot consists of X shooting out a green thorny ball of vines that goes a short distance before returning to him. Charged up, X shoots out a purple spiked ball that ricochets across the screen four times (regardless of terrain) before leaving the screen.
