User can create, shape and manipulate electricity, a form of energy resulting from the movement of charged particles (such as electrons or protons), allowing control over electric fields, all charge carriers (Ions, Electrons, Protons, and Positrons), and electronics. One could eventually grow to manipulate the weather and create thunderstorms.

- Users of Electricity Resistance are highly resistant and users of Electrical Immunity are not affected.
- Distance, force, precision, etc. depend upon the knowledge, skill, and strength of the user and their power's natural limits.
- Electricity needs a conductor like metal or water to move through, therefore electricity can neither exist in nor move through a vacuum (such as outer space) and may be insulated by non-conductive matter, such as air and rubber.
- May be unable to create electricity, being limited to manipulating only from already existing sources.
- Electricity may be redirected by certain materials.
- A strong enough magnetic force/source may be beneficial or a hindrance.
- May be limited only to the path of least resistance.
- May become useless if confronted with electrical resistant material, such as rubber, silicate, etc. although a strong enough electrical change can overload any insulator and force it to become conductive.
- May have to find electrical sources of power in order to recharge.
- Reflection Manipulation could cause a problem since it's unclear if users are immune or not.
- May have problems using electronics.
- May be short-circuited under certain conditions:
- Contact with water, a magnet, the opposite polarity, etc.
- Absence/lack of electrical resistance between the positive and negative polarities.
- Weak against Electricity Negation.
In universes such as The Avatar series, electricity manipulation requires the user to be mentally stable with the complete absence of emotions and peace of mind. Physically, it requires separating the energies of yin and yang, which in our universe can be interpreted as positive and negative electric potential energy respectively. When the yin (positive chi energy) and yang (negative chi energy) collide together to become whole again, lightning is created. Essentially, it's similar to matter and anti-matter collision. In which when they collide, they release pure energy in the form of protons and electrons (photons are nothing but light, not electricity). Supposedly in the Avatar Universe, the combination of yin and yang release the pure energy in the form of electricity.
Electrokinesis is also the term used in Electrohydrodynamics to refer to the movement of a fluid or particle by an electric field in a fluid with a net mobile charge. To prevent possible confusion, one could use the term Fulgurkinesis to refer to someone with the power to manipulate lightning. However, the term Electrokinesis to refer to fictional users of the power is commonly used enough that it's unlikely to be a major source of confusion.
Because electricity can get extremely hot when lightning passes through the air, lightning can heat the air it passes through to 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit (5 times hotter than the surface of the sun).
