The Electric Eel is a single-fire clip-fed Nerf blaster that was released in 1997 under the Max Force 2112 series. It requires two "AA" batteries to use its glow-in-the-dark feature.

It comes with a four dart clip and four Glow-In-The-Dark Mega Darts.


The Electric Eel features an integrated flash bulb that, when the trigger is pulled, goes off and "charges" the flash bulb lights when the trigger is pulled, allowing the darts to glow efficiently. There is an indicator light located above the blaster that lets the user know when the flash bulb is ready for use.


It was the first Nerf blaster to utilize glow-in-the-dark darts; despite this, the Ambush Rip Rockets line of blasters were packaged with darts with glow-in-the-dark dart heads.

Reloading and firing

To reload the Electric Eel, load up to four darts into the included four dart clip. Load the clip into the blaster; there will be a click sound when it is properly loaded in. To ready the blaster for use with glow-in-the-dart darts, flip the switch located above the priming rod to turn on the flash bulb. Wait for the indicator light to light up. Pull back the priming rod to prime the blaster; when the blaster is primed, the clip advances upwards.

Pull the firing trigger to fire a dart.


  • The N-Strike Firefly REV-8 is similar in concept to the Electric Eel, as it also features an integrated flash bulb that goes off when the trigger is pulled. The only difference is that the Firefly REV-8 is not clip-fed.
