It is a large, foam ammunition type with fins and a foam head. It appears to be some sort of spiritual successor to the Mega Missile, which was included with the N-Strike Titan AS-V.1. Despite its name, it has little in common with the previous Nerf missiles; instead, it has an appearance similiar to a Buzz Bee Glo-Missile.
It was first revealed on January 20, 2014 alongside the Demolisher 2-In-1. It was initially revealed with black fins, although a later Hasbro reveal showed the missile having red fins, matching the color of the blaster. Oddly, the production version of the missile was shown later on with black fins, scrapping the red fins previously seen.
It was spotted on July 5, 2014 in a refill pack at Smyths Toys' website. This refill pack contains three missiles.
In fall of 2015, these same missiles were packaged with the ThunderBlast.
Elite Missiles refill packs come in the following sizes:
- The Nerf Elite Missile coincidentally fits the Buzz Bee Blastzooka and the Buzz Bee Maniac center launcher, and has been known to fit the Lanard Big Salvo with clever persuasion.
- The Elite Missile is known as the Mega Missile on the Toys "R" Us website.
- Mega Darts can fit into Elite Missiles; as such, it is possible to fit an Elite Dart into a Mega Dart into an Elite Missile.
