Energized Shugguraths are shock-based Shugguraths that use highly damaging and very accurate attacks. They primarily shoot out highly accurate bolts of electricity that are almost impossible to dodge and they can also lob highly damaging shock orbs. They are distinguishable by the three tall growths on top of their bodies that meet at the top and their deep blue colouring. They are the only type of Shugguraths which never spawn Rathyds.
- In True Vault Hunter Mode, they are renamed Capacitor Shuggurath, and in Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode, they are renamed Rectified Shuggurath.
- The Official Strategy Guide states that Energized Shuggurath spawn Storm Rathyds which can become overcharged over time and deal greater damage. However, Storm Rathyds do not appear and does not exist in the game's coding.
