Physical is a pseudo-element first introduced in MARDEK Chapter 3. Physical represents pure physical matter, that is unaligned to any of the eight elements. While not a 'real' element, it is found in weapons without an element, which deal physical damage with regular attacks. All robots that have been seen are of the Physical element (except Moric's Security Orbs), since they are not affected by any of the magical forces that influence their elements, and thus are made completely of Physical parts. Annihilator:Karnos can also change its element into Physical. Even though it makes no sense at all, it is possible to absorb Physical damage using Solaar's Astral Form and a Steel Stole.
Contrasts with Thauma.
