Elec Man 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 is the Thunder Beam. It 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 throughsolid 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.
Video game appearances
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.
Mega Man Powered Up
As a remake of the first game, Elec Man appears as a boss, but he becomes a playable character if he's beaten by Mega Man using only the Mega Buster. His weakness goes from the Rolling Cutter to the Oil Slider.
His personality gets a serious makeover, Elec Man now being very calm and noble, albeit arrogant and somewhat overdramatic. He can still be considered morbid, however, as he seems to be genuinely interested in electrocuting the other Robot Masters.
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.

Elec Man is the sixth fastest player in the game and has average Kick and Defense, but his Tackle is the second lowest. In the Capcom Championship mode, a team formed by eight Elec Men is one of the eight team bosses. One Elec Man joins Mega Man's team after his defeat.
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 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.

If Mega Man is defeated by Air Man, Elec Man will appear to save him, giving the player the chance to fight against Air Man again.

He and Spark Man were subsequently dispatched to defend Cancer in Above the Clouds. Later, he joined Pisces at In a Tornado alongside Tomahawk Man.
In the mini-game Eccentric! Elec Man (エキセントリック！エレキマン?), Mega Man faces Elec Man in a rhythm game.
Elec Man is one of the four bosses from World 3. He also appears in some Battle Memory.
