Wave Cannon (波動砲, Hadōhō?), also known as Surge Beam, Particle Beam, Cannon and FlareWave, is a recurring enemy ability in the series. It typically deals large amounts of damage to the entire party. It is most often associated with the Cloud of Darkness and Omega as their signature attacks.
Only appearing in the Dawn of Souls and 20th Anniversary versions, Wave Cannon is used by Omega, and inflicts massive non-elemental damage to the entire party.

The superboss Omega has access to this attack as well, as does Omega Mk.II in the Game Boy Advance remake.
Wave Cannon, used by Air Force, Io, Gamma, Demon, Kaiser Dragon, and Omega Weapon, inflicts major Lightning-elemental damage to the party. It has a power of 110 with a hit rate of 150, and it cost 20 MP for the enemy to use. It is only used by Air Force after it has finished its countdown for it.

One of the Cloud of Darkness's cards can use Ultra Particle Beam. For the discard of another Cloud of Darkness card and the payment of any amount of Water CP the player chooses, the ability decreases the power of all the opponent's Forwards by 1000 times the amount of CP paid, until the end of the turn. The same card also has a less powerful ability similar to Ultra Particle Beam, Dulling the Cloud of Darkness and paying any amount of CP to decrease the power of a single forward by 1000 times the CP paid.
