All he's shown so far is a kick attack and people are trying to say he's godlike on a bunch of forums. Ok if he's so good, how could he beat someone like Setsuno? Oh and I'm pretty sure Sani's satan hair would probably end him for good, like, no doubt about it
from this chapter, you can at least see that he can recover from damage on cellular level.
Why do you need to be good at many areas to be impressive?
To beat him, you'll probably have to do more damage that he can regenerated. But well, damage down to cellular level and divide him into who knows how many pieces isn't enough. That's all we know so far. And Tommyrod hasn't show ability higher than that at all.
I don't have doubt Setsuno can deal more damage than he can heal. It's not like physical damage is the only way to go too. Zebra's shinigami voice might also do the trick.
Makes me wonder what the purpose of the bandages Elg had wrapped around him, do they suppress his cells?

As for Tommy vs Elg, let's wait and see what else Elg has to offer before comparing them. But considering Tommy was ranked higher than Elg, I think it's safe to assume he was stronger. Regeneration doesn't automatically equal stronger.

Well, no matter how good his regen is, it deffenetly has a limit. His Cells need energy, so after reaching a limit of his regen, he would die.
And of course as tons of people mantioned, regen doesn't equal strength.
Elg seems to be like "Cell" in Dragon Ball but I think there is a way for Buranchi to finish him. I guest Buranchi has some more skills better than "Inazuma Bouchou". Let's see in next chapter. Can't wait.....
So this Elg guy is immortal. I wonder what the trick behind his ability is. This battle is getting interesting.
What if Buranchi's batteries are not the source of his power but is a way of controlling it? Maybe he uses a device that limits the electric flow coming out from his body. And now that it's gone, his full power will be unleashed. Just like Kenpachi's eyepatch.
First of all, damn the break next week. The manga world has been plagued by breaks since the year started.
On the chapter - it seems Buranchi is Laxus of Toriko world. There had to be someone with electricity (lightning) power, and that is usually very strong power and Buranchi is using it well.
One thing you guys are overlooking is that there has to be a limit to Elg's regeneration power. This is certainly not the first instance where he multiplied. Where are all those other Elgs? If he got cut by Buranchi on a cellular level, are there now millions or billions copies, since there are so many cells in the body? Of course not. Why didn't the Bishokukai just chopped him and made an army of invincible soldiers with ease? It doesn't work that way and there are limits which will be the key to stopping him. He also showed low offencive ability, one named attack, which looks like a regular kick, and he can't just beat his opponents by regenerating infinitely and tiring them out.
Buranchi does have a cool power and he didn't specifically say his batteries were about to die but we can guess that's what he's about to say. But like most people are saying, I don't think the batteries are the limit to his power. He's probably like a computer with a power supply. Where even if he loses his power source he still has enough juice for a certain amount of time.
As far as Elg's "power level" is concerned, we haven't seen much yet but I can already tell he's a lot tougher than people originally thought just because he was ranked lower than Tommy, Grinpatch, etc. For me that doesn't mean anything. In almost every manga I read, there's been people who were ranked lower but still stronger than the people above them. So far we know Elg has speed and his regeneration powers; which are kinda like Cell from DBZ as someone mentioned. I just hope the way to defeat him isn't the same (destroying him beyond the cellular level).
No chapter next week? Ugh!!
Ofcourse there is a limit to Elg's ability. That's how power works in this manga. And I think that limit is on how much regeneration he can do. Each regeneration requires a certain amount of calories to perform. If his body runs out of calories, then he won't be able to regenerate anymore.
And about his clones, I think they can only last for a certain amount of time or for a certain amount of damage received. Much like Naruto's kagebunshin.
What if the leader of NEO is...
