The Thunder Arrow[1] is a move that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs. It is a Chaos Power used by those with a strong connection to the Chaos Force.


When performing the Thunder Arrow, the user forms a lighting bolt made of Chaos energy that electrocutes its victims.[1] It is similar in appearance to the Chaos Spear, except the user summons the energy bolts in bursts of energy instead of throwing them as spears.



An Enerjak-possessed Knuckles using Thunder Arrow, from Sonic the Hedgehog #184.

Knuckles, when he became the new Enerjak, used the Thunder Arrow effectively against Shadow the Hedgehog when invading New Mobotropolis, which defeated him.[1] However, when he tried to use it against Super Sonic, it had no effect due to the fact that he was invincible.[2]

Following his return to normal, Knuckles was shown to be capable of utilizing the move, as he did in battle against Dr. Finitevus.[3] Edmund, a possible future descendant of Knuckles, used it against Prelate-V.[4]
