Thunder Claw is Clown Man's signature weapon, originating from Mega Man 8. It is featured in Mega Man Maker as of version 1.5.0.

It lets the user extend an electric tether from their buster that reaches eight tiles out before returning to the user. If the tip strikes an enemy with more than 3 HP or their shield, it will immediately return instead. The claw will pass through most reflective objects such as unmarked Weapon Blocks, and the user is rooted in place if the weapon is fired while grounded. Since it's an electric-based weapon, it can power Fuse Crosser/Xtenders, deactivate Fire Met Spawners, and trigger Spring Man's electromagnetism.

One of Thunder Claw's main features is to allow the user to latch on to Thunder Claw Poles and swing underneath them. While swinging, the claw can still damage anything that comes in contact with it, but the user cannot change their direction until they finish or cancel the swing. Additionally, the user can cling on to poles as long as any part of Thunder Claw comes in contact with it, rather than just the tip.
