**A few Digimon who are machine or cyborg types have lightning attacks as well. Not to mention Kokuwamon (they're ''beetle-shaped machine Digimon!'' There was pretty much no way their power wasn't going to be lightning. Unfortuantely, being Rookie-level, it wasn't strong enough to keep the villain of their episode from enslaving them as a power source.)

** Lightning Lad of the ''ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}'', as well as Lightning Lass, their PsychoElectro brother Lightning Lord, and Storm Boy. Lightning Lass and Lightning Lad get a free pass from the "no two members with the same powers" rule, for some reason, even though it was the very rule invoked to keep Storm Boy from joining. So when Lightning Lass joined, her powers had been deliberately downgraded so that all she could do was nullify gravity on objects. They just failed to kick her out when she regained her lightning. By then, Lightning Lad was also ''dead''. Once he [[UnexplainedRecovery got better]], she arranged to get the Light Lass powers. And then, yes, she got her lightning back, and they didn't do anything about it. Storm Boy had a wide variety of weather-based abilities; he didn't get in because he was using a concealed WeatherControlMachine, rather than intrinsic powers.

* Force Lightning from ''Franchise/StarWars'', which is considered one of the more powerful abilities of TheDarkSide, though you don't necessarily have to be evil to use it. One of R2-D2's gadgets is an arc welder. A particularly hilarious scene involves a droid KO'ing R2 after getting shocked.

One Doing so is frowned upon, though: a power fueled by anger and aggression is something no Jedi should make a habit of playing around with because using the Force that way leads to ThisIsYourBrainOnEvil.

The same goes for the (otherwise quite different in plot) ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'' version.
