    Make a 15 million volt Bug Swatter

    No, the kind of spark of a stun gun will only follow the shortest path. This is especially true for pulsed high voltage (stun guns are pulsing). For continuous high voltage discharge, like Jacob ladders or high power network discharge, the arc can go up and make loops because the air is ionized (burning) a lot, and ionization makes heat, and heated air goes up, and ionized/heated air is a better conductor.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXiOQCRiSp0
