|Artwork of Energy Element|
Energy Elements are a level gimmick in Mega Man Maker, featured in the Misc section of the Boss tab. Similarly to Party Balls, they are a non-fighting alternative to bosses for clearing a level, in this case achieved by simply touching it.
Despite commonly being referred to as Energy Elements in various fanworks, the Energy Elements in Mega Man 1 were not named in any way, and were simply used as the first game's version of clearing levels after beating a boss. The name "Energy Element" comes from Mega Man 3, where they are used for an unrelated and unseen element in the game's story (although they are shown in various extended media.)
Energy Elements will remain in the location placed in the editor during a level, being unaffected by gravity or other objects. Upon being touched, the player will have their controls locked as the victory fanfare plays. Note that they can still be affected by pits and objects, and the player may die during the process.
- Despite the name and appearance being unrelated, they were likely combined due to a previous fangame WreckingPrograms worked on, Make a Good Mega Man Level 2, doing the same thing. In that game's case, it was because the project lead didn't know the elements had canon appearances, and simply used the unnamed objects from Mega Man 1.
