The MAN-08 (MAN-X8) Elmeth is a fictional mobile armor from the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam.

The experimental Elmeth mobile armor was produced by the Principality of Zeon under the auspices of the secret Flanagan Project for use as a Newtype-capable mobile armor. Among the Elmeth's capabilities were its Psycommu control system, which allowed a Newtype-pilot to control the 12 large "bit" pod weapons with his/her brainwaves. The bits had their own onboard reactor and were also equipped with maneuvering thrusters and a beam gun. With the bits the Elmeth could attack targets over great distances and they were its primary weapon although the mobile armor was also equipped with two mega particle guns, which were mounted on its very large body and had a ninety-degree vertical range of fire. The armor itself was also very fast and agile.

The Elmeth was taken into combat only once, under the control of Lalah Sune (who was herself guided by her lover Char Aznable), who used the mobile armor to attack the Earth Federation fleet stationed at the recently captured asteroid base Konpeitoh (the former Solomon). With its bits and the ability to strike nearly unseen Lalah Sune earned the nickname "Ghost of Solomon". However the Elmeth then had to fight against the RX-78-2 Gundam, piloted by Amuro Ray. When Char intervened and fought against his rival, Lalah was killed when she moved her mobile armor between the two fighters. She was killed instantly and the Elmeth destroyed when the Gundam's beam saber pierced the Elmeth's cockpit.
