It tends to have relatively low hit rate, but much higher [[CriticalHit critical rating.]] (It should be noticed that the ''Lightning'' spell is associated with [[HolyHandGrenade light magic]] and is nothing like the lightning element.)

** [[TheLeader Garnet]] can generate electricity from her hands. Interestingly she hasn't yet weaponized it, favoring her [[PowerFist gauntlets]] instead- and has only used it to power [[MundaneUtility Greg's van and an arcade game]].
** [[spoiler: Peridot]] discharges electricity through her fingers, and unlike Garnet, ''does'' weaponize it by running a live current Amethyst's whip when the latter tries to grab her.

*Oricum, the wizard among the mine-robbers in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', hits Paul twice with massive bolts of lightning from his wand. He gets a rather nasty surprise when this doesn't harm Paul, just intoxicates him and gives him an orgasm. [[LightningCanDoAnything And, later, bestows upon him the ability to see magic and power.]]

* 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 of the spirit-demon guys from ''Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina'' (creatively named "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Lightning]]") used lightning as a weapon.
* The primary streamthrowers in ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 1984}}''. They can burn toilet paper, explode maid's carts, and will cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt if you [[ForbiddenChekhovsGun cross the streams]]. Oh yeah, and you can snare ghosts with it.
* The {{lightning gun}}s used by Zion's forces throughout ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' trilogy.
