* The Vestal's Judgment ability in ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' calls down a bolt of lightning from the heavens. Unlike her other HolyHandGrenade ranged attacks, it doesn't inflict a stun or debuff; in exchange, it has the lowest damage penalty and heals the Vestal when it hits, also making it better at stress recovery for her (the game checks criticals for the damage and the healing separately, meaning that if one doesn't come up the other might).

** In the ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'', divine retribution via lightning bolt is not that common, as Talos the god of storms is very possessive of his exclusive dominion over lightning in Faerun. Inverted in Mulhorand, where the war-god Anhur has been known to publicly strike his ''favored'' followers with spectacular lightning bolts that do them no harm, the better to convince skeptical Mulhorandis that their mission is a holy one.

* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proto-Indo-European_religion common Indo-European pantheon]] has this as the primary attribute of the sky god ''Dyeus'', from which developed the Greek Zeus, the Hindu Indra, and Norse Tyr; later, other gods got this attribute as religion changed over time (for instance, as Tyr was displaced in the Norse pantheon by Odin and Thor, they took on some of his attributes).

However, this god was appearently associated with the daylight sky and the sun foremost; the thunderer god aspect acquired by Zeus and Jupiter seems to have been the result of conflation with other gods.
