Wild Coil (ワイルドコイル Wairudo Koiru) is Spring Man's special weapon. It sends one spring forward, and one backward. It is one of the few weapons in Mega Man 7, other than the Mega Buster, that can be charged up. When charged, the springs jump higher and cause more damage. When charged, their bounces can also be made higher if the player holds "Up" while releasing the shot. This weapon is Shade Man's primary weakness, and is also effective against the Gameriser and Wily Capsule.
It also appears in Mega Man 9, where Mega Man is equipped with it in the scenes shown by Rush in the ending.

Dialogues about Wild Coil in Mega Man 7
Mega Man: The Wild Coil launches one coil forward and one coil backward, right?
Dr. Light: Yes, but remember to charge the coils to make them jump higher.
- Interestingly, while a normal Wild Coil will cause Shade Man to flinch and fall to the ground, a charged-up Wild Coil will not.
