For a gallery of examples for Electricity Manipulation, see here.

The ability to control, generate, and/or absorb electricity. Sub-power of Electromagnetism Manipulation.

Also Called

  • Electric Current Manipulation
  • Electrokinesis
  • Electric Charge Manipulation
  • Lightning Bending
  • Lightning Control
  • Lightning Manipulation
  • Lightning Release/Raiton


Users are able to absorb, conduct, generate and manipulate a form of energy resulting from the existence of charged particles (such as electrons or protons) which give the user control over electric fields, electric charges, electric currents, electronics, and electromagnetism.

The user can diverse various electrical-based attacks, ranging from simple to complex attacks. Simple effects may include the ability to generate electricity, shoot lightning, or overload a circuit. More complex ones may include manipulating energy in a person, directing current in a more complex route than the one of least resistance, firing sparks, turning off electrical devices, or electrical constructs. With applications ranging from direct electrocution and high energy output, to more complex abilities such as hacking, and electromagnetism generation and constructs, the user is able to control electrons in a variety of the effects that often yield positive results,making Electricity Manipulation one of the most powerful and versatile element.





Universal Difference

In other universes such The Avatar series, electricity manipulation requires the user to be mentally stable with the complete absence of emotions and a peace of mind. But physically it requires separating the energies of yin and yang, also interpreted as positive and negative electric potential respectively. When the yin (positive energy) and yang (negative energy) collide together to become whole again, and thus lightning is created.


  • Electricity can be insulated by the air.
  • Electricity may be redirected by certain materials.
  • May be limited only to the path of least resistance.
  • May become useless if confronted electrical resistant material such as rubber or silicate.
  • 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.
  • Some users may have problems using electronics.
  • Users who possess negative electricity may short circuit if hit with water.
