Elec is almost identical in appearance and function to its much older cousin, the Flamer. However, it bears more detail, including an eyelid and segmentation of its outer shell, and is largely green in color.
Elec primarily moves by rolling along whatever wall it is in contact with, turning with each corner of the wall as necessary. However, if angered, it will detach from the wall and float in the air, in an attempt to ram its target. It can be tough to deal with, as it can roll very quickly and has decent durability. Unlike their fiery cousins, Elecs tend to attack from above via electrical field upon getting angry. It also tends to prefer rolling clockwise, unlike Flamer which usually rolls counterclockwise.
Elec returned in Kirby: Planet Robobot, serving the same function as before.
- Elecs earned their name from "electricity", which fits their electrical attack.
