Thunder Beam is Elec Man's signature weapon from Mega Man 1, and is one of the weapons featured in Mega Man Maker since version 1.0.0.

The user will fire out three large blasts of electricity directly forward, upward, and downward all at once that can do a lot of damage to enemies. Its large hitbox and medium speed make it very easy to hit bosses and groups of enemies with, but it is difficult to be precise with as it can more easily hit shielded enemies or indestructible entities. Before being able to fire the Thunder Beam again, some time must pass, no matter if the attack was successful or not.

It can only deal damage once per hit to an enemy.

In Mega Man, Thunder Beam was one of only two weapons that could destroy Super Arm Blocks, the other being Super Arm. It is unknown if they can in 1.7.0.


  • Prior to version 1.5.0, Thunder Beam was the only electrical weapon.
  • Thunder Beam can destroy the entire Gabyoall family.
  • Prior to 1.1, Thunder Beam had a different icon.
