Lightning   Lightning (The LEGO Ninjago Movie)    
“You think lightning is better than water and ice for stopping flames?”
Lloyd to Jay, "The Hands of Time"

Lightning is one of the four main elements of Ninjago. It is the element of electricity and it is generally associated with the color blue. It was first practiced by the First Elemental Master of Lightning, and over a hundred generations later, it was practiced by the Previous Master of Lightning and was passed down to her son, Jay. This element corresponds with the Nunchucks of Lightning, the Lightning Dragon, and the Elemental Lightning Dragon.

Users' Abilities

  • Electrokinesis/Fulgurkinesis - The user can create, generate, increase, absorb, conduct, shape, and manipulate electricity and lightning of various intensities and control the voltage of their electrical attacks. Users of this element can redirect natural lightning in an electrical storm, electrocute opponents, and cause electrical explosions. Also, the user can absorb or redirect electricity while removing it from the source, use it against an adversary, and have a possibility of generating electricity underwater carefully without electrocuting themselves.
    • Electrokinetic Flight - As seen in "The Invitation," the user has the ability to fly using electricity.
    • Technopathy - One application of Lightning, as Jay taught Lloyd, is to overload, control, and power electrical devices or systems, as seen in "Double Trouble." Lloyd used his Lightning powers to overcharge a light bulb, allowing him to use the shards of glass to free himself from his bonds. Jay was even able to create a specific image (of a Steep Wisdom teapot) on multiple screens in "Winds of Change."
      • Electronic Disruption - Lloyd was able to disrupt a message sent to the Ultra Sonic Raider by his father, Lord Garmadon, and play a video game instead.
      • Electrocommunication: The user is able to interface with natural electrical signals to communicate with others.
    • Electrical Force Field - The user can generate a shield of electricity as a defensive tactic (similarly to its Elemental Shield).
    • Lightning Blast - The user can release electricity/lightning over a specific target area which causes great damage and/or delivers great shock waves of pure force.
    • Electricity Immunity - Some users of lightning are immune to concentrated electricity and natural lightning.
    • Electrical Infusion - The user can infuse objects (usually a weapon), beings or powers with electricity, empowering and energizing them and allowing the user to manipulate their qualities and efficiency and use electricity in various ways to attack.
    • Electrical/Lightning Bolt Projection - The user is able to create and project bolts of electricity and lightning and control the intensity/power of their projectiles, the bolts aren't weak but may not be as powerful as a full-powered attack.
    • Electricity Surface Creation - The user can send electricity through a surface (often the ground or a floor), to channel electricity, sending electric shocks to anything in contact with them or the surface.
    • Electric Orb Projection - Few users are able to project an orb of electricity as seen in "Home," when Jay tried to break Cole free from Skales' hypnosis.
    • Electro-Magnekinesis/Magnetokinesis - The user can use their Lightning as a magnet.
  • Elemental Shield - The user can create a Lightning Elemental Shield.

Via the users' True Potential

  • Lightning Mimicry - The user can temporarily transform their body completely into electricity.
    • Electroportation - This allows the user to also "teleport" short distances using electrical currents.


The symbol of Lightning is an octopus. The silhouette of the octopus and its tentacles resembles a storm cloud discharging lightning.

  • Kai (formerly)




Golden Power




  • In "Ghost Story," Morro was able to shoot green lightning. This is not normal lightning, but rather a manifestation between Energy and ghost power.[1]
  • Apparently, the user can ride Lightning and conjure lightning ropes as seen in "The Absolute Worst," although this is just fantasy.


The images on Lightning need to be organized.
  • You can help the Wiki by adding images to the appropriate section on "Lightning."
  • This template can be removed once images have been organized.
