Element is an Iori Yagami edit character, created by Zelgadis for his King of Fighters Memorial series of fangames.
He is a grey-coloured version of Iori, with multiple, flashy lightning effects on his sprite. His attacks are very powerful and have high priority, resulting in a foe that should not be taken likely.
Introduced at the conclusion of the first Memorial game, Element is one of the possible final bosses of the sequel, the other being Puppet Yukino.
He was the "ultimate creation" that Gustab Munchausen was gathering battle data for in the first game, but he escapes at its conclusion. He then starts off the events of the second game by disposing of Gustab and Psyqhical easily, then kidnaps Yukino Ozawa to brainwash her into Puppet Yukino for his purposes.
In M.U.G.E.N, Element has two main variants. One is the official one made by Zelgadis, the other is the speculative OPIRUS version made before the second game came out, well known for its wide range of flashy supers and tendencies to kill opponents with 3 supers in 1 combo.
Regardless of the version of the character, edits marked "Element" are very likely to be Cheap Characters.
Based on his appearance in The King of Fighters Memorial Level 2, his most notable feature is a desperation attack that fakes the KO screen at his last sliver of health. After that, he gets up and fires an unblockable instant kill laser that must be jumped over or dodged at point-blank range. If he kills his opponent, he gets up and wins the match.
If the enemy fails to hit Element after he executes the desperation move, Element can get back up and continue fighting at 1hp. However, this fake KO can be overridden by multi-hit moves.
