- "Cool, calm, collected and hellish are the only words I can find to describe Electra."

Arenas of DestructionEdit
In Arenas of Destruction, Electra was a half cylinder shaped robot armoured in titanium and armed with large lifting forks. It had two searchlights and two headlights. It was a heavyweight, but wasn't able to self-right.
- Body: Half Cylinder
- Locomotion: 4 x Medium Inner Pneumatic
- Power: 4 Stroke Petrol Engine 5HP
- Drive: 4 x Differential & Medium Ratio Gearbox
- Weapons: Electric Lifting Spikes
- Armour: Titanium
- Extras: 2 x Headlights & 2 x Searchlights
Due to its shape and high speed, Electra can turn over easily. Your best bet is to drive slowly and attack often, while not letting more than one robot attack you at a time. Luring opposition into pits is also an option.
Electra is simple to defeat. As the robot is highly unstable, all you need to do is to flip it over with a flipper and it is over, as it can't self-right. In addition, if you're lacking a flipper, a ram will work against it, as it will tip over. A powerful weapon is discouraged, however, as Electra has strong armour.
In Extreme Destruction, Electra maintained the same body shape as it did in Arenas of Destruction, but opted for a conventional flipping blade to replace the lifting forks as weaponry, which enables Electra to self-right. In this game, the robot no longer has any extras.
Electra is unlockable after unlocking Stage 5 of "Competition" mode, and costs 6850 credits to buy.

Electra doesn't have great pushing ability, but the flipper is quite powerful, considering its size. The flipper can be used to flip other robots forward to get them into a particular direction, into arena hazards etc. Electra is fairly agile, so can fairly easily get around the sides of robots to flip robots when vulnerable.
Electra's large wheels give it a high ground clearance, which makes it very susceptible to flipping. Electra is also quite unreliable; a large flip can render the engine or the drives immobile. Electra has limited pushing power, so pushing it from the sides or the back can be done with ease. The flipper of Electra is surprisingly powerful, so it is advisable to avoid it as much as possible.
