Short Circuit Zap! is an enemy in Mother 3. It appears near the top of Thunder Tower in a room with a large generator in the center; multiple copies of this enemy spawn from it. It careens wildly around the room, only stopping if it runs into Lucas and friends. In battle, it appears as a zigzag spark with a grinning face.
Its battle sound is Battle Sound 32 which falls under Code Numbers 855 for regular attack, 856 for Smaaaash! and 857 for Miss. Kumatora's Brainshock is required to get it to use its battle sound as it never uses physical attacks.
