Sly sets his cane so that when he hits a guard, it is shocked and dies instantly. It isn't required to complete the game. It is one of Sly's most useful power-ups. Like the Insanity Strike move, Sly taps his cane on the ground and the cane emits small lightning bolts. There is a similar ability version called Lightning Spin in Menace from the North, eh! where you instantly kill all enemies you touch with any part of you.
