** Ryuji Sakamoto in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' serves as the team's lightning user, but his low Magic stat means he'll generally favour using his hard-hitting physical attacks instead, much like Kanji.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has Shock Arrows that Link can fire from his bow, which stuns enemies, disarms them, and can create splash damage if the arrow is fired into a pool of water or in a rainstorm. The Zora race can't touch Shock Arrows since Zoras are people of water and they don't mix well with electricity.

Related to BlindedByTheLight and RideTheLightning. Someone with this power may also be a {{Technopath}}. Compare MagnetismManipulation which (sometimes) includes electromagnetism. See ElectricBlackGuy for black people with this power. Contrast AnIcePerson and PlayingWithFire, and WeatherManipulation for weather controllers who use lightning among other attacks. For other uses of lightning and electricity, see MagicalDefibrillator and ElectricTorture. For the physics ([[ArtisticLicensePhysics or lack thereof]]) behind electrical attacks or weapons, see ChainLightning, LightningGun, and StaticStunGun.

** Electro from Franchise/SpiderMan's RoguesGallery. He can generate massive quantities of electricity, theoretically up to approximately one million volts. He can employ this electrostatic energy as lightning arcs from his fingertips, and his maximum charge is more than enough to kill a normal human. When his body is charged to high levels, he becomes superhumanly strong and fast. He can also glide over power lines by using the electricity contained therein for propulsion, and he has on occasion been shown to actually ride on lightning bolts. He can also absorb the energy of electrical equipment such as a power plant to increase his powers further.
*** His "daughter" [[http://marvel.wikia.com/Danielle_Blunt_%28Earth-616%29 Aftershock]] for ComicBook/SpiderGirl.

* Fate Testarossa-Harlaown of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha''. Her squad is called "Lightning" for a reason. Other Lightning mages include her adopted kid Erio, her {{psycho|Electro}}tic and {{abusive|Parents}} [[EvilMatriarch mother]] Precia, and (in [[VideoGame/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable A's Portable continuity]]) her {{Doppelganger}} Material-L/Levi the Slasher. In fact, [[AllThereInTheManual some fluff]] contains the term "Mana Conversion Affinity", an ability to spontaneously convert one's mana into a specific form of energy without the use of spells, etc.. Fate and Erio have Lightning (that is, electricity) affinity, whereas Signum is [[PlayingWithFire attuned to fire]]. Rio on the other hand, has both lightning ''and'' fire, which is really rare.
