|First appearance||Donkey Kong Jungle Action Special, "A Blast from the Past" (1995)|
The electrician is a character from the comic "A Blast from the Past" in the magazine Donkey Kong Jungle Action Special, who appears in the flashback sequence when Cranky Kong tells the ace investigative reporter about the last time he saw Pauline. The electrician notices a younger Cranky Kong carrying Pauline to the top of a building from outside the window. He starts climbing the building himself, believing that the event could be a publicity stunt, but that Pauline might still be in danger. He is hit by one of the barrels thrown by Donkey Kong in an attempt to stop him, but he taunts Donkey Kong by claiming that he will have to throw a lot more barrels before he hits him again. He is immediately swarmed by barrels and seemingly falls out of sight, leaving Donkey Kong to wonder where he went before he pops out of the barrel Donkey Kong is holding, greatly scaring him.
- Fleetway's later video game comic, Sonic the Comic, also features electricians as stand-ins for Mario; specifically, it has the "Marxio Brothers," who are a combined parody of the Mario Bros. and the Marx Brothers, and are electricians rather than plumbers.
