Power Control Center Stage (電力管理センターステージ) and Hydroelectric Power Plant Stage (水力発電所ステージ) are Volt Catfish's stages in Mega Man X3 and Mega Man Xtreme 2, respectively. The former also appears as a stage in Mega Man X DiVE.
The stage begins in an area with many Trappers and elevators. One particular elevator pulls X down into a spiky pit where the only choice is to enter the warp to the Vile Stage, and might be better off avoided. After the elevators section, X crosses a bridge that leads to a sub-boss room for Bit or Byte; after that is a large room with orange floors and a electric bars on the walls. This section then leads to Volt Catfish's boss room.
The Hydroelectric Power Plant on Laguz Island is very different from the Power Control Center, appearing as part of X Mission. Its design instead draws inspiration from Boomer Kuwanger's Tower Stage, and it takes layout sections from Toxic Seahorse's Giant Dam Stage such as the vertical waterfalls segment. There is also an extra section where deadly waves will periodically wash over the bottom of the screen, forcing the player to wait and avoid them.
The Power Control Center is the twelfth stage from the Story mode.

Enemies in Volt Catfish's stage in Mega Man Xtreme 2:
Mega Man X3
|After riding an elevator, you'll notice that the elevator continues upward. The Life Up is sitting on a bed of spikes. Careful maneuvering along the walls and air dashing can retrieve it safely.|
|In the orange area, climb upwards and to the left to find a Ride Armor Platform. Get in a Ride Armor and fall down the gap on the right, destroying the floor to open a secret area with the Sub Tank.|
|The last elevator of the first area leads to a unique platform on the floor. Using a charged Gravity Well causes the platform to levitate, lifting X to the capsule.|
Mega Man Xtreme 2
|In the area with the deadly waves, the Life Up is visible below. Wait for the waves before jumping down to grab the Life Up. It's safer to quit the stage afterwards, rather than to attempt an escape.|
|During the vertical waterfalls segment (from Toxic Seahorse's stage), continuing climbing up the tunnel to find the capsule on the right.|
