|Sprites of Elec Beams from Mega Man Maker.|
An Elec Beam block is a Level Object that resembles a tile from the Tileset of Elec Man's stage from Mega Man 1, and originates from that same game and stage as well. The Elec Beam block discharges a stream of electricity at regular intervals, in the four tiles horizontally to either the left or right of the source Elec Beam block. The electricity discharged by an Elec Beam block can hurt the player, but will not hurt enemies or bosses.
An Elec Beam block can be assigned to either discharge electricity either horizontally left or right, and can be set to activate at the timer intervals "1", "2", "3", and "4", in the Level Builder.
- The player will be immune to Elec Beam's damage and pass through the electricity unharmed, if Shine's shield is active. Shine will not deflect the electricity from Elec Beam.
- The player will be immune to Elec Beam's damage and pass through the electricity unharmed, if Charge Kick's attack is active.
- Elec Beam can be slowed down by Time Slow.
- Elec Beam can be frozen in time by Flash Stopper.
Proto Shield Interactions
Proto Man's shield's interactions with the electricity discharded by an Elec Beam block will differ depending on where in the hitbox of the electricity the shield connects.
When Proto Man's shield touches the electricity's hitbox from the farthest two horizontal tiles (indicated in the image above with the area in a blue background), the electricity in its entirety will be deflected. The electricity will instantly disappear upon being deflected, and the Elec Beam block will return to its normal behaviour after a few seconds after the electricity is deflected.
When Proto Man's shield touches the electricity's hitbox from the closest two horizontal tiles (indicated in the image above with the area in a red background), Proto Man will not deflect the electricity with his shield, and will instead take damage.
- In Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge / Rockman World 1 for Gameboy, In Elec Man's stage, there are variants of the Elec Beam block that discharge electricity vertically upwards. These don't appear in the NES version of Elec Man's stage.
- Despite both Level Objects behaving similarly, Elec Beam's electricity activates at a faster speed than the Fire Beam's flames.
- Unlike the Fire Beam, the Elec Beams can't hurt the player when it is in its idle state.
