In the early stages of the exploration of Jupiter, it was realized that almost no electronic equipment could function in the incredible storms of the planet's surface. Using a crystal found only on Jupiter's moon Io, scientists were able to create Electra, a HAR capable of withstanding any type of charged particle. Though the crystal is very strong, it is also one of the most expensive molecules in existence. Until the contest in One Must Fall: 2097, the Electra unit was seldom seen in public.
As a combat robot, Electra is formidable. Not only is it fast, but even a touch from its hands can short circuit normal machinery. It can form a flying ball of lightning which lasts for a short duration and explodes for damage capable of turning a house into rubble. Electra can also fly forward, rolling itself into a ball and striking with considerable force. For defense, the unit can send small shards of electric force which do a small amount of damage but is good for keeping an enemy at arm's length.
Electra is all about priority: jump punch, df+K and Electric Shards have it in buckets (plus all are fast moves), so use and abuse these. Nearly everything Electra has is useful: a real throw, good pokes with db+P and f+K, good offense with K and b+K, in addition to the ones already mentioned. The only reason Electra isn't one of the best is because he has real trouble doing damage aside from rehit combos, none of which combo off his jump punch, so even when you land one, you have to hope he won't block.

The Ball Lightning can be controlled with the arrow keys in Hyper Mode. Each enhancement adds a projectile to the Ball Lightning and more hits to the Electric Shards.
