Shock Arrows immediately dissipate into a burst of electricity after impact. If Link or an enemy is shot by a Shock Arrow, they are electrocuted and stunned for a short period of time. In addition, if Link is using any equipped items while shocked, they are dropped to the ground. Shock Arrows deal an additional 20 damage to the attack power of the Bow being used.
