Electric Catfish Man is an enlarged catfish with muscular human arms and legs. He has an electric field emitted from his body. He has a tattoo of a battery emoji on his belly.
When in his Plate Tectonics Mode, his mouth is opens revealing two eyes within and his skin darkens. He gains armor plating on his belly.
Unlike most other monsters in the association, he appears to have an understanding of the limits of his strength. Additionally, he gave most of the credit of his victory to Gyoro Gyoro and the latter's decision on who he would fight, instead of boastfully taking all of the credit of his victory like most monsters typically would, demonstrating a less arrogant side.
Electric Catfish Man is the implied husband of Maiko Plasma and they share a mutual respect for each other. Electric Catfish Man cares about Maiko Plasma, quickly coming to her aid after Puri-Puri Prisoner defeated Baquma.
He and Maiko Plasma go to attack the recently rebuilt D-City. At the city, they encounter Lightning Genji. Unfortunately for Lightning Genji, their attributes nullify his stun attacks. The monster pair eventually defeat Lightning Genji.
Back in the Monster Association, she and Electric Catfish Man are discussing their victory over Lightning Genji and remarking that it was thanks to Gyoro Gyoro and his carefully-planned choice of who they would fight that the pair won against the A-class hero.
Later, Electric Catfish Man alongside other Tiger-level monsters, including Maiko Plasma, are attacking Puri-Puri Prisoner. When their attacks have no effect, they attempt to flee only to run into Baquma, a humanoid monster with an elephant face. The suddenly appeared monster tells them not to retreat, to which they angrily ask him to fight the S-Class hero in their place. Baquma agrees and subsequently consumes them all to gain their powers. However, Electric Catfish Man manages to avoid getting sucked up and tries to save his partner Maiko Plasma from being sucked in Baquma, but he fails. After Puri-Puri Prisoner defeats the elephant-like monster, all of the monsters it consumed get freed including his partner. Electric Catfish Man catches a free Maiko Plasma while telling her that something worse than a big earthquake is coming as they leave the area.
