Maiko Plasma's appearance was that of a Maiko; with her black hair tied up in a traditional Japanese way with many decorative hair clips with stars, clouds and thunderbolts. As a Maiko, she wore a long kimono called a hikizuri, with clouds and thunderbolts printed on it, a black obi sash with two belts tied over it and wedge-heeled wooden sandals. Around her, she had eight Tomoe drums attached to her back and carried two drum sticks in her hand.
When in her High Voltage Mode, her clothing becomes more modern. She wears punk boots and her kimono is considerably shorter. Her drums are no longer attached to her, but are simply free floating.
Maiko Plasma seemed rather calm and acknowledged that there are more powerful beings than her in the world, a trait very few low threat level monsters have.
Maiko Plasma is the implied wife of Electric Catfish Man and they share a mutual respect for each other.
Maiko Plasma and Electric Catfish Man go to attack the recently rebuilt D-City. At the city, they encounter Lightning Genji, an A-Class hero. Unfortunately for Lightning Genji, their attributes nullify his stun attacks. The monster pair eventually defeat Lightning Genji.
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, Maiko Plasma, alongside other Tiger-level monsters including Electric Catfish Man, are attacking Puri-Puri Prisoner. When their attacks have no effect, they attempt to flee only to run into Baquma, a Demon-level monster resembling an elephant. Baquma tells them not to retreat, to which the monsters angrily ask him to fight the S-Class hero in their place. Baquma agrees and subsequently consumes them all to gain their powers. During the consumption, her partner, Electric Catfish Man, manages to escape on his own and tries to save her from being sucked in Baquma, however he fails. Shortly afterwards, she and the other monsters who were absorbed by Baquma are freed when Puri-Puri Prisoner defeats the elephant-like monster. As she is released from Baquma, Electric Catfish Man catches her and leaves the scene. While they are leaving, Maiko Plasma wonders to him if they would be punished for fleeing, which her partner responds that it does not matter anymore and something like a real big earthquake is coming.
