Also Called

  • Lightning Direction/Strike/Projectiles
  • Lightning Creation/Generation/Projection
  • Lightning Bolt/Control/Direction/Projection
  • Thunderbolt Control/Direction/Projection


Users can summon lightning bolts from the sky or project them from their own bodies (usually from owns hands), using them to pierce and/or severely burn their opponents even to the point of death. Unlike normal bolts of lightning, they could use them as concussive or even piercing forces, which could be strong enough to affect even greater beings of strength and durability.

Unlike Electrical Bolt Projection, the lightning bolts are far more deadly in terms of voltage and speed, which also grants tremendous temperature and kinetic force, averaging over 50,000°C (5 times hotter than the surface of the sun) with at least 1,000,000,000 volts, moving at 61,111 miles (97 536 km)/second. Of course, advanced users may be able to regulate the voltage discharged and speed, but the power is still enough to be lethal and cannot be compared to low-powered electrical bolts.





  • May exhaust the user to a great extent.
  • May only be able to summon lightning from the sky if there are storm clouds.
  • High power output cannot be lowered to the point of a minor, non-lethal shock.
