Force Lightning, ou na tradução, Relâmpago da Força, é um poder da Força do Lado Sombrio.
Bastante usado pelos Sith, o Force Lightning eletrocuta a quem seu usuário desejar. Raios saem das pontas dos dedos do usuário. É um poder que requer bastante aprofundamento no Lado Sombrio, portanto, a maioria que usava eram Sith, já que eles eram os mais aprofundados no Lado Sombrio.
Nós vimos Dooku e Sidious usando Force Lightning nos filmes, com Yoda contendo os raios de ambos, mas não aguentando os de Sidious.
No Legends, existia uma habilidade da Força muito semelhante ao Force Lightning, que era usado pelos Jedi; o Electric Judgement, ou Julgamento Elétrico. Eles eram raios menos fortes, com intuição de retardar o oponente, não matá-lo. A cor do raio era diferente também. Variava de acordo com a intensidade dos raios. Luke usou muito essa habilidade, e o dele era verde. O de Plo Koon era amarelo.
SWTOR art part 6! Here’s my Inquisitor Zhanashi Kaan, and boy, is this drawing messy, sorry. Inquisitor outfits are hard to draw.
Zhanashi’s the adopted daughter of my hunter, but was originally born to a pair of terrorists on Belsavis, and like canon implies, was sold into slavery during her teenage years before being picked up as Sith. She started off as your stereotypical crazy Sith who’d electrocute anyone who crossed her, but there’s some depth to her character that I’ve grown to love over time.
Force lightning was a purely offensive, energy-based attack that channeled Force energy down the user's limbs, hurling arcing bolts of electricity from the wielder's fingertips or palms; Force lightning could be executed with either one or two hands. Users skilled in controlling the intensity and force of their lightning could render a target unconscious with only a short burst, or kill a person instantly with a single, powerful blast. Darth Bane's lightning, for example, would often electrocute his opponents to death on contact. Darth Sidious could conjure lightning so powerful that not only would it instantly kill its target, it would also physically hurl them backwards. Force lightning could be blocked with a lightsaber, However, some of the technique's most exceptionally powerful practitioners, were capable of producing blasts that contained enough kinetic energy to tear an ignited lightsaber from their opponent's grasp. One of the most notable examples of this was seen during the duel between Darth Sidious and Yoda, where Sidious disarmed the Jedi master with a particularly powerful lightning blast. Force lightning could also be absorbed and redirected by a Jedi of sufficient skill; Yoda demonstrated this ability by both deflecting and absorbing the dark power during battles with Darths Sidious and Tyranus, using nothing more than his own two hands. Luke Skywalker attempted this, and succeeded for a short amount of time, before the Emperor's attack overwhelmed him. Some Jedi could use a variant of this power called Electric Judgment, It showed up as yellow or green energy instead of blue or white. This power was uncommon and controversial among the Jedi due to its use having intrinsic association with anger and aggression and its similarity to Force lightning #StarWarsLegends#ForceLightning
