Dracon beams are handleheld weapons used by Yeerks and some other aliens.
Dracon beams are Yeerk handheld weapons. They are a blending of Andalite Shredder technology with Ongachic particle-wave technology. Like Shredders, Dracon beams separate particles and essentially disintegrate objects and individuals. However, while Shredders were designed to kill as painlessly as possible, Dracon beams were purposely altered to inflict excrutiating pain as they disintegrated their targets. They are used to destroy Elfangor's ship.
The Dracon beam is the smaller, less powerful version of the Dracon cannon, which is the weapon that is more usually mounted on ships.
- Both Dracon beams and Shredders have been compared to the phasers from Star Trek.
- While they have the same variation of settings, Dracon beams seem to be labled in reverse, the high number being the stun setting, setting one being kill, this may be a Yeerk deception.
