The Cyan Laser takes the form of a cyan-colored lightning bolt emitting cyan-colored energy with sparks flying out.
In gameplay, the Cyan Laser can only be obtained at random from Item Boxes by Whisper. As with most other Items, Metal Sonic can also use the Cyan Laser if he uses the Steal Item to steal it from the aforementioned user.
When used, two energy projectiles are shot out; one travels forwards up the lane while the other flies backwards. The forward shot travels at a high speed while the backward shot travels slowly. Both shots will dissipate when they hit a player or an obstacle, or travel off-course. Opponents hit by the Cyan Laser will take damage and be stunned temporarily. Players also have a chance to increase the damage they can deal with the Cyan Laser by leveling them up to levels 4, 10 and 16.
In order to avoid the Cyan Laser, the player must either jump over it or step out of its lane.
