This page is about the original Elec Man. For his NetNavi counterpart, see ElecMan.EXE.
"Do your worst, but I find it hard to believe that such a low-voltage robot like you can defeat me."
―Elec Man, Mega Man: Powered Up
"Ha! Get ready for some truly en-lightning shock therapy!"
―Elec Man, Mega Man: Powered Up

Elec Man (エレキマン Erekiman?) is a Robot Master from the original Mega Man series. He was built by Dr. Light to control the voltage of nuclear power plants. At the time of his creation, Elec Man was often hailed as Dr. Light's greatest creation and boasts razor-sharp judgement, as well as a physical agility that would not be matched until the creation of Quick Man, who is in turn based on his design.

His Special Weapon, the Thunder Beam, fires off devastating bolts of very high-voltage electrical energy in multiple directions, with sufficient power to go through multiple enemies with one shot and even break through solid rocks. Elec Man is very conceited and egotistical, with something of a sadistic streak in him, but is otherwise very responsible and competent. In his spare time, he has taken up playing the electric guitar.

Mega Man

In the first game, Dr. Wily reprogrammed Elec Man and Dr. Light's other industrial robots to help him conquer the world. Mega Man fights against Elec Man and defeats him.


Elec Man is a difficult boss to beat. He runs fast around the room, often stopping to shoot a single Thunder Beam, and less often shooting one when jumping. The Thunder Beam is very dangerous, as it cuts Mega Man's health for about a third of his maximum HP. However, the beam can be avoided if jumped over it with good timing. His weakness is the Rolling Cutter, which takes him out in three hits, however it is a short range weapon and should be carefully used against him.

Interestingly, Elec Man can be defeated easily with no damage simply by shooting him in his underarms with correct timing. [2]

Mega Man Powered Up

As a remake of the first game, Elec Man appears a boss, but he becomes a playable character if he's beaten by Mega Man using only the Mega Buster.

His personality gets a serious makeover, Elec Man now being very calm and noble, albeit arrogant and somewhat overdramatic.


He inherits the same attacks from the first game, but in Normal and Hard modes, he gains a new attack: the Thunder Bolt, consisting of a lightning striking the screen, trying to hit the player's character where he is standing. This is avoided by rapidly moving out of the way. If playing against him in the New Style mode, his weakness is now Oil Slider, but Elec Man may damage Mega Man by contact damage if he is sliding. He is defeated with fourteen blobs, but five tackles if Mega Man is on the slider.

In Tournament mode, his team consists of three Elec Men, Ice Man, Bomb Man, Air Man, Bubble Man and Flash Man. In League mode, his team contains three Elec Men, two Gemini Men, two Snake Men and Dr. Wily.

Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters

"Elec Man's thunder laser is long and powerful. Distance is the key! Use an electric-proof weapon to stop him!"
—Dr. Light

Elec Man is one of the six bosses from the "Rescue Roll!" course. The power of his Thunder Beam was reduced compared to the first game, but his speed and attacking power, along with new lightning-based attacks, still make him a force to be reckoned with. Even though he was actually one of Dr. Light's creations, the narration indicated that Dr. Wily built him.

Dialogues from Mega Man Powered Up

As a Boss

Elec Man: Well done... but you say good bye here. I might even tell you more about me after I win.

Mega Man: I don't have any reason to fight you, Elec Man! Come on, let's go home...

Elec Man: You'll never blast through my heart with that kind of attitude. It's really too bad, but I'm going to finish you at lightning speed...

Other media

Mega Man (Ruby-Spears)

Elec Man appeared in episodes The Beginning, Terror of The Seven Seas, Mega Dreams and Bro Bots from Ruby-Spears' Mega Man animated series. He is much weaker than his video game counterpart, often being defeated by Roll's vacuum arm.

Mega Man: Upon a Star

Elec Man has a brief appearance in the third episode, being one of the robots that attack Mega Man in the future.

Mega Man (Archie Comics)


Elec Man in the Mega Man comic.

In the Archie Comics Mega Man comic series, Elec Man was reprogrammed by Dr. Wily in Let the Games Begin! to help him conquer the world. While under Wily's command, he attacked Xander Payne, resulting in the loss of his left eye. Elec Man took over a power plant, but he is quickly defeated by Mega Man with a single Rolling Cutter, having ignored Wily's warning for him to evade the attack. He is later repaired by Dr. Wily in his fortress and faces Mega Man again, but the six Robot Masters start fighting each other. Eventually, he alongside the other Robot Masters destroyed Copy Robot, although they let Mega Man fight Dr. Wily, as they technically followed their parameters of "destroying" Mega Man.

In Time Keeps Slipping, Elec Man is assisting with the clean-up of the city after the ordeal, and much later, he helps Mega Man rescue Roll, along with the other Robot Masters and the agent Roslyn Krantz. However, the six Robot Masters ended up being reprogrammed to serve Wily again, at least that's what they want Wily to think. Turns out, Dr. Light made sure they weren't reprogrammed again, and they decided to pretend to be working for Wily again to set up an ambush, which Elec Man helped by subduing Time Man.

In The Return of Dr. Wily, Dr. Light's eight Robot Masters invaded the Wily Castle to save Mega Man. During the invasion, Elec Man is damaged by the Mecha Dragon and is taken back to Dr. Light's lab by Cut Man, Ice Man and Fire Man.

In Spiritus Ex Machina, Elec Man goes with Dr. Light to the A.R.T.S. conventions. He later aided Mega Man, as well as Quake Woman and Pharaoh Man (developed by Drs. Noele Lalinde and Cossack, respectively) in quelling a terrorist occupation of the convention by the anti-Robot extremist group Emerald Spears, although one of the bombs was detonated by second in command/leader Xander Payne when he became privvy to the bombs being deactivated. He later directed the robots that managed to escape the facility to help the wounded out, as well as fought and subdued Xander Payne, also apologizing for his earlier actions while under Wily's control. However, when distracted by a couple of robots not being in line to help people, Xander shot Rush, causing Elec Man to bitterly express his hate for the First Law of Robotics because of this.

Elec Man later appeared in Sonic the Hedgehog Issue 251, the final part of the Worlds Collide crossover arc, where he and the other original Robot Masters were sent by Roll to back up Mega Man, Sonic and their friends in the event that they needed it after Duo was sent to the Skull Egg Zone. He then met up with Dr. Light and informed him about why he and his brothers were present, and also agreed to Knuckles' plan to save Mega Man and Sonic as well as take out the Genesis Wave Generator upon learning that their plan went wrong, stating they'll hold off the other Robot Masters.

In issue 31, Elec Man was revealed to have been supplied with the EMP coating that temporarily shielded him from the effects of Ra Moon's EMP wave, and spent his time using his electrical powers to aid a cafeteria. In issues 32 and 33, in the days after Ra Moon's destruction, Elec Man aided in the recovery of the damage caused by the EMP wave, the former issue by putting cables back together at a bridge area.

Short Circuits

Elec Man appears in issue 14's Short Circuits, where his electrical powers causes the hair of various Advanced Robot and Trade Show attendees' hair to stand on end, including Dr. Light, Quake Woman, and Roll.

Mega Man Megamix

Elec Man is one of the two most prominently featured robots from the original game, along with Cut Man. Acting as the "big brother" of the Light family, he has a very no-nonsense serious personality, though he is shown to have moments of childishness in secret. Throughout the manga, he is slashed in the chest twice. First by Mega Man in "The Birth of Mega Man" with a Rolling Cutter, and again by Quick Man's giant Quick Boomerang in "R Destruction Order".

Elec Man also appears in Mega Man Gigamix.

Other appearances

He has also appeared in several manga series, such as Rockman, Rockman World, Rockman: Yomigaeru Blues, Rockman wo Tsukutta Otokotachi - Rockman Tanjou Densetsu, Rockman 4Koma Dai Koushin, and Rock'n Game Boy.




  • Elec Man is one of the few Robot Masters in the series with the distinction of having the same color and thickness of forearms as the upper arms.
  • In Mega Man Powered Up, Elec Man has a very confident, theatrical personality, often speaking highly of himself and his skills. In addition to this, many of his poses are references to the traditional Japanese genre of tokusatsu.
  • Elec Man shouts "Thunder Bolt!" in Mega Man Powered Up just before unleashing his special attack. However, his special attack is more similar to the Lightning Bolt. To make it even more confusing his Thunder Beam looks more like a Thunder Bolt in Powered Up.
  • Elec Man's level theme sounds very similar to "Faithfully" by Journey.
  • In Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters Elec Man uses an attack he calls Force Field which is similar to the Force Field weapon Mega Man gets off Volt Man in Mega Man 3 for the PC.
  • The thunderbolt on his mask is inverted in his Mega Man 3 mugshot and RockBoard card.
  • The reason for Elec Man's dislike of rubber products is due to how electricity cannot flow freely on rubber- which instead acts as an insulator.
