Elec Man is one of the 6 Robot Masters, and a boss in Mega Man. Originally built to control the voltage in power plants, he was reprogrammed by Dr. Wily to help him rule the world. He is hailed as one of Dr. Light's greatest creations. Elec Man tends to be arrogant and egotistical, but is very responsible otherwise. His signature weapon is the Thunder Beam, a fast bolt that goes in different directions, and deals significant damage.
Elec Man is often referred to as the hardest Robot Master in the game. This is because he runs very fast around the room and repeatedly fires his Thunder Beam, which causes big damage to Mega Man's health, and occasionally shoots while jumping. His weakness is the Roller Cutter and he grants Mega Man the Thunder Beam when defeated.
