The Cannonball Arm is a melee weapon arm for the Ridepod in Dark Chronicle. It is not available for purchase, but like all Ridepod parts, the Cannonball Arm and its later variants can be invented. It came as the default arm part on the Ridepod when Cedric originally made the machine.

The Cannonball Arm's melee combo consists of a right hook, a swing with the left arm, and a downward slam with both arms, dealing more damage with each combo hit. Cedric is shown to be capable of executing a much more powerful, rapid combo sequence, knocking out Linda in seconds in the Channel Pump Room.

The Cannonball Arm belongs to the weakest series of arms in the game, and becomes quickly outclassed by other arms. But because of its high Smash stat it can still be used to defeat Windup monsters with ease early in the game, even in Starlight Canyon.

Both the first Cannonball Arm and Cannonball Arm II can be invented in Chapter 1, although the version II is very expensive at the time. Versions III and IV become available in respectively chapters 3 and 4, but are not worth the cost compared to other alternatives, as almost every other arm part available at the same time is both cheaper and stronger.
