  • Shocker, one of the starring villains in The Lion King Adventures, has the ability to shoot bolts of lighting from his paws.
  • In Transformers Meta, Bumblebee has the powers with two electrical stingers, similar to his Transformers Animated counterpart. However, in Transformers Meta, revealed in the fifth episode, he is capable of "charging" them by connecting the tips together to create a more potent blast.

  • Ogma in The Tainted Grimoire is skilled enough in lightning-based abilities that his Jump attack is described as hitting as fast and hard like a lightning bolt.
  • Calvin and Hobbes: The Series:
  • Child of the Storm:
    • Thor, which is unsurprising, considering that he's the God of Thunder and Lightning (and it isn't dependent on Mjolnir, either). It also applies to other storm-gods, e.g. Zeus, and Dracula, who's powerful enough to cover most of the eastern seaboard of the United States in a storm system imbued with dark magic, and wields lightning as one of his favored attacks.

    • Mjolnir, also gives wielders this ability while they wield it. Said wielders so far include Steve (though he only ever used it as a doorstop, being completely oblivious to the significance of being able to lift it), Diana in the finale of Book 1, and Maddie during the Forever Red arc of book 2.
    • Maddie Pryor a.k.a. Rachel Grey demonstrates an electrical theme to her psychic powers (which manifest as electric blue energy), and merges lightning with her psychic powers when fighting Harry. Harry, who favors Playing with Fire, copies the trick with fire.
    • Harry is also fairly adept at using lightning in his own right, though he prefers fire, pointing out that he is the son of Thor.
  • Code Geass: Paladins of Voltron: Lelouch's Geass gives him this power in this story in addition to his canon Compelling Voice powers. It's implied this is related to the Galra and their Druids and his Galra heritage.

  • Gwen in Keepers of the Elements has this as one of her powers.
  • Safeyah from Fly or Fall is the Fairy of Lightning.
  • Queen Celesia can shoot 'lightings' out of her eyes in Twillight Sparkle's awesome adventure.
  • In A Posse Ad Esse, Sly is one of these. But considering his mental condition, he tends not to understand how best to utilize it, nor how much damage it can cause someone.
  • Rep-Stallion from My Brave Pony: Starfleet Magic has this power.
  • Miles Prower from CIA Agents has this as his magic element.
  • In Mega Man Reawakened, Flash Man has this power, as well as Elec Man.
  • In Episode 5 of Mega Man: Defender of the Human Race, ProtoMan copies Elec Man's power and shocks Mega Man with it, nearly killing him.
  • In Divided Rainbow, Rarity kills the vicious Mr. 7 by conjuring a thunderstorm right inside the giant spider's cave.
  • Iku, in Game of Touhou, as a reference to her original canon, gains an armor (a medieval version of a Tesla coil) that conducts electricity, and a sword that can discharge electricity enough to vaporize small areas and to kill a dragon. She gained the nickname of "The Thunderbolt".
  • Ha-chan fights this way in FREAKIN GENSOKYO.
  • The End of Ends: Sir Vile, one of the servants of the initial Big Bad, has electrical powers.
  • Kyoshi Rising; Princess Miyaki starts trying to Bend lightning after a conversation with Kyoshi. She succeeds two years later, using it to blow through a squadron of guards and capture Honsou.
  • In the Pony POV Series:
    • Dark World!Rainbow Dash, due to a thousand years of experience, has a mastery of Pegasi magic, to the point of using it to shape weapons.
    • Thunderchild, Shining Armor's second in command, has this as his special talent, and is exceptionally skilled with it, to the point of being a Gifted Pegasus.
  • The Infinite Loops: Petrie, from the The Land Before Time, Looped into Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger in his first Fused Loop, replacing Pteragordon, and gained electrical abilities that stuck with him into future Loops as a result.
  • Oricum, the wizard among the mine-robbers in The Keys Stand Alone: 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. And, later, bestows upon him the ability to see magic and power.
  • This is Azrael's preferred element in Aesir: Cross Wars. Abigail Fletcher also has this.
  • The Rainsverse: Chroma's alicorn magic powers are heavily themed around lightning and storms.
  • Luna in the Wonder Woman (2017) fanfic Legacy can manipulate lightning quite well, being the daughter of Zeus. The same goes for her half-sisters and of course her biological sister, Diana.
  • In Amazing Fantasy, Izuku possesses the same Venom Strike power as Miles Morales. It's strong enough to send Peter flying down the street when it goes off for the first time. Izuku, who knows that Harmless Electrocution isn't really a thing, tries to call the hospital until Peter regains his senses and stops him.
  • A Certain Magical Friendship: Both versions of Misaka Mikoto:
    • The Academy City version is an electromaster, meaning that she has the power to control electricity, like firing it at people.
    • The pegasine version has a habit of storing lightning in her fur, and can also fire it at people.
  • In War of the Biju, besides canon examples like Kakashi, Hizashi reveals that he adds Lightning Release chakra to his Gentle Fist techniques.
  • Sailor Moon Abridged naturally has Sailor Jupiter.
  • Yu Yu Hakusho Abridged: Suzaku's lightning powers are mocked. Apparently he got them by standing outside during a thunderstorm on a drunken dare by his wife Murugu and... "well here we are ten years later."
  • A Diplomatic Visit: In the sequel Diplomat at Large, the Storm King is able to shoot lightning from his helmet.
