"An arrow imbued with the power of electricity. It breaks apart on impact, channeling electricity into nearby objects. It's incredibly effective against anything metal or anything wet."
— In-game description

Shock Arrows are items from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They are a sort of arrows filled by lightning power. Link can use them to paralyze one or several nearby enemies granting them electricity damage. They will also cause enemies to drop any equipment they are wielding such as weapons, bows, or shields. Its area of effect and power will increase in watery areas or when it is raining.


Enemies occasionally wield Shock Arrows and use them to shock Link and cause him to drop his weapon, bow or shield. However Link can consume dishes granting "Electro" effect or Electro Elixirs to increase his Shock Resistance, or wear armor granting Shock Resistance such as the Topaz Earrings, Rubber Helm, Armor, or Tights. Link can be immunized by wearing the Thunder Helm or the whole "Rubber" armor set upgraded to level 2 or higher.


Link can use Shock Arrows to hunt animals and obtain dropped ingredients like normal arrows does and contrary to Fire and Ice arrows roasting and freezing them. They are useful in killing fish, flocks of ducks swimming in water, or hunting in rainy weather.
