Fired as a bouncing bolt of energy between two guns, this is guaranteed to give either Dragons or 'toads a sizzlin' sensation of the fatal kind.
~ Official description from the manual

The Sparkbolt is an environmental hazard in Battletoads/Double Dragon.

Description[]

Sparkbolts are one of the main defense mechanisms of the Colossus and are frequently found in Level 3, Ropes 'N' Roper. The device is conformed of two gun-like generators pointing at each other and separated a certain distance, where the appropriately called "sparkbolt", which is a controlled electric bolt, incessantly bounces back and forth from one gun to the other. The separation between both guns can vary, with most having both guns separated the entire length of the room, while a few others are separated only a small distance.

The guns of a Sparkbolt can be found arranged in two ways, either vertically or horizontally, depending on the layout of the current area, and the electric bolt will bounce accordingly between them, with each arrangement presenting its own challenge and how to avoid it.

Sparkbolts are generally encountered either across or over chasms, as well as in some rappeling areas. In some instances, the player must time their movements to make it across the guns through the temporary openings left by the bolt, while other times it's best to evade the entire mechanism altogether.
