Ey, dis is Electrical Beast, AKA the Jolteon of Let's Plays!


ElectricalBeast (real name Adam, according to his YouTube profile) is a very British YouTube user whose most famous work is a Let's Play of Super Mario 64. At 60 parts, it's very long, and often has many funny moments, exacerbated by his hilarious accent, rather impressive playstyle and happy-go-lucky personality, coupled with a surprisingly expansive, if crazy story he created and tried to apply to the levels as he played through the game. The second-to-last episode was released in April 2008, but due to computer problems, the final episode was put in Development Hell until Christmas 2010, when EB uploaded it as a gift to all his watchers. In September 2010 he started a Let's Play of Minecraft, and in April 2011 he began an LP of Super Mario Bros. Crossover. He may also be starting an LP of Super Mario Sunshine and Runescape.

Retsupurae has done several RPs of him, and have noted that he, along with BillyMC and MuscleBomber2021, is one of their favorite LPers.

Electrical Beast provides examples of these tropes:

  • Running Gag: "Teleport!"
    • Calling Koopa the Quick 'Koopa the Slow'.
  • Shout-Out: He frequently does these for other Let's Players in his videos.
  • Take Up My Sword: Luigi took over Minecraft for Mario after he left to be in the Mushroom Kingdom.
  • Teleport Spam: In Episode 17 of Minecraft, Mario went back to Boo's Mansion and learned how to multi-teleport.
  • Time Travel: His interpretation of Tick Tock Clock is a time machine, and Bowser plans to use it to turn back time by 10 years to when Mario was a baby and get the stars earlier.
    • He also varies between saying that Mario has the power to stop time and turn back time—but only once!
      • Both versions of the power ended up being used in the finale.
  • Time Skip: On April 15 2008 episode 59 came out but it would not be until September 19 2010 (aside from a few short test videos) that he would start doing lets plays again. By this time ElectricalBeast was older and less upbeat than he was before.
  • Treehouse of Fun: He built one in Minecraft, christening it 'Treezilla'.
  • Vapor Ware: The conclusion, Episode 60, took over two years to make, and many fans lost hope until he began his Minecraft LP.
  • Verbal Tic: Huh!
  • Victory Is Boring: The reason Bowser gave Mario his memory back is because he got bored without him, and wanted to finish him personally.
  • Villain Ball: "I think [Bowser] made a mistake by giving our memory back."
  • Wham Episode: Episode 13 of Minecraft. Bowser appears to talk to Mario via a painting, and reveals that he used the time machine's mystical energy to erase Mario's memory, create the monsters in the Minecraft world, and teleport him here. It ends on a cliffhanger.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Justified in episode 46 or the Super Mario 64 Let's Play.
    "The best thing to do when you get in this level is try and find as much spider thingies as you can. So just kill 'em under any circumstance. I know they're animals with feelins', but they're only a game character. HUH!"
  • Zombie Apocalypse: Plays these in Minecraft.
