From Storm to Thor, fictional characters have always had the ability to generate enormous amounts of electricity.
Anime, like its Western counterparts, has its fair share of electrically-inclined characters who can be used for good or evil, or whatever in between.
So who are these ethereal characters, anyway?
Check out some of the most memorable anime characters with lightning-shaped tails, including a yellow creature with a lightning-shaped tail and a skateboarding teenage assassin.
20. Hajime Nagumo
Arifureta: The Rise of a Commoner to the Strongest Man in the World
A more typical isekai animation, Arifureta Shokug you de Sekai Saikyou was at least directed by Hajime Nagumo.
One of the most dramatic alterations has occurred in the character of this MC.
Hajime went from a shy and unassuming adolescent to a fearsome and powerful demon with white hair, a red Demon Eye, and red veins.
By his peers, he was degraded (and betrayed).
Despite this, he made it out alive.
So, you could say he vanquished the forces of evil and was granted mad powers that allowed him to easily slaughter his peers (and anyone who gets in his way).
Although Hajime possesses a wide range of abilities, only his Lightning Field is effective in dissuading enemies.
If there is any conductive material in the area, he will be able to unleash a fatal storm.
Enemies can’t use the same tactics against him because of his lightning resistance.
How Not to Summon a Demon Lord in Anime: A Guide
Diablo is the second white-haired demonic MC to join the ranks.
First, the name belonged to his powerful character in an MMO game.
However, he was then isekai-ed into the video game, which led to this:
There, he was greeted by two fantasy beauties (who were also in his harem, of course). In fact, the erroneous incantation resulted to them becoming his slaves.
Rem and Shera set out on a fresh adventure, hoping to rescue themselves from the shackles of slavery.
He is a Level 150 sorcerer who excels in all sorts of elemental magic. This is Diablo, Takuma Sakamoto’s Diablo.
He has a wide variety of electric spells, from Lightning Bullet and Lightning Arrow to Lightning Sphere and Lightning Storm.
In spite of this, the enemy should be most afraid of his Apocalypse Abyass:
There are thirteen points created by this spell — where earth, fire, wind, and water magic fiercely collide. It takes time to cast.
It is engulfed in lightning and commonplace objects turn to dust in an instant with his Apocalypse Abyss spell. It’s also a whirlwind of lightning-infused elemental magic that annihilates all that stands in its way.
18. Luck Voltia
Black Clover is an anime.
Despite his laid-back demeanor and oversize clothing, this man can’t stop smiling.
When he keeps a smile on his face even when his enemy is on the verge of death, you might consider it a curse. Aside from his mother, a lot of people detested his perpetual smile, which didn’t help matters; neither did his enthusiasm for getting into fights and creating chaos.
Even still, you can’t deny that Luck Voltia is a formidable opponent.
Lightning Magic and the more powerful True Lightning Magic are both at the disposal of this Magic Knight.
Using Creation Magic, he may demonstrate his fighting prowess while holding lightning-forged weapons.
Luck is still in search of the thrill of deadly combat, but he’s come to appreciate the importance of working together as a team.
17. Kurumi Nonaka
Anime: Sister New Devil’s Testament
In the main series, Kurumi Nonaka was a supporting character assigned to defeat Mio Naruse. However, in the Shinmai Maou no Testament Burst sequel, she was promoted to one of the MCs.
But Kurumi isn’t quite a loli, either.
As a result, people are sometimes taken aback when they see her feminine shape, given her diminutive stature.
However, don’t be fooled by her appearance:
When it comes to protecting her onee-san Yuki, Kurumi takes her role as a Hero very seriously.
In her role as an elemental master, she is able to use wind, water, and lightning magic.
In the event of a threat to her sister (or Basara), Kurumi will not hesitate to let out a swarm of lightning bolts.
Among Basara’s harem, Kurumi is one of the most desirable girls.
In the anime Ushio to Tora,
In 2015, MAPPA and Studio VOLM began developing this adaptation.
Despite this, Ushio to Tora was enjoyable to watch because the manga it was based on was published in 1990.
In order to save Ushio and his buddies from another youkai, Ushio freed Tora, a powerful youkai.
After he was freed, he would have killed the kind-hearted boy, but Ushio had the Beast Spear to protect him.
They formed a unique relationship, working together to thwart oncoming threats from the realm of the supernatural.
Is Tora a scary person?
In addition to his elemental powers, he had demonic strength and speed. As a matter of fact, he has the ability to unleash lethal storms of lightning and fire whenever he wants.
Tora actually cared about Ushio, despite his constant threats that he’d eat him.
After spending 500 years in a basement of a temple, he was able to enjoy some delicious burgers from the modern world.
15. Rin Azuma
Cheat Magician in Isekai
Despite being 16 years old, Rin Azuma continues to be a popular and respectable female MC.
It’s true that the method by which she enters the fantasy world is standard in this period of isekai.
Her childhood friend, Taichi, joins her on this amazing voyage that carries with it a wealth of power.
In video game terms, she was given a level-boosting item for nothing.
Rin, on the other hand, goes a step further:
As a result, she uses scientific principles she acquired in school instead of depending solely on her magical prowess to craft more intricate and powerful spells.
Healer of the Wind, Water, Earth and Fire, she is Isekai Cheat Magician’s first Quad Magician.
Lightning is a part of Rin’s wind element, and she may use thunder, lightning beams, and a lightning sword as part of her arsenal.
Many aspects of this series are light and predictable.
But it’s hard not to be smitten with Rin.
During her time in the enchanted world, she develops romantic affections for a handsome boy.
14. Akeno Himejima
DxD High School Musical
Is there a harem like Shinmai Maou no Testament’s in High School DxD?
Akeno Himejima, on the other hand, was a member of the MC team from the beginning, unlike Kurumi Nonaka.
Akeno’s long hair and slender frame make her an easy target for Issei’s charms.
Despite this, she has a troubled past that belies her outwardly faultless femininity.
Akeno’s father Baraqiel was a Fall Angel, and Akeno hates herself for it. This is why she has separated herself from him.
Issei was able to help her reconnect with her father and deal with the loss of her mother.
Despite the fact that Akeno can now act like a masochistic woman around Issei, her cruel side will remain a constant for her enemies.
It is possible to overpower opponents with paralyzing lightning bolts and enormous lightning blows thanks to her Lightning Demonic Power and the Holy Lightning.
The Seven Deadly Sins, an animated series
Despite his conventionally gorgeous features and towering stature, this salmon-haired Holy Knight, sometimes known as “Little Gil,” is merely a supporting player in the series.
Gilthunder, on the other hand, is a match for Meliodas in terms of battling spirit and battle prowess.
With his long sword, he has greater attacking and defensive capabilities.
This ferocious Brittanian warrior is capable of defeating entire armies on his own.
Gilthunder has a lengthy relationship with Meliodas, as well as Howzer and Elizabeth Liones, which is one of the things I admire most about him (and Veronica).
This wonderful youngster has been compelled by his circumstances to despise his closest pals.
12. Laxus Dreyar
Tales of Xehanort
Fairy Tail’s most powerful blond magician has a problem that has real-world ramifications for people who come from well-to-do families.
As it happens, Laxus Dreyar’s grandfather is Makarov Dreyar, a member of the Guild of the Master.
Consequently, he began to believe that he was only known because of the name he shared with his family.
He, for his part, longed to demonstrate his worth.
Laxus grew from a lowly child into an arrogant man who mocked others he considered to be weak.
It just served to bolster his belief that he was the best Lightning Magician in the world.
With a simple command, Laxus was able to generate lightning and electricity, and he was able to control its range and intensity.
Not to mention that this S-Class Mage has the ability to change himself into lightning that is both lethal and extremely fast. ‘
However, the silver lining is that he has subsequently reverted to his more compassionate nature (after a tumultuous battle).
In order to compensate for his misdeeds and keep the Thunder God Tribe in the guild, Laxus is doing everything he possibly can. He may be able to establish his own legacy by adopting a selfless mindset.
Katekyo Hitman Reborn, the anime!
This Bovino Famiglia hitman, who is only 5 years old (yes, he is that young), has the appearance of a baby human cow.
When Lambo relocated to Japan, he was meant to defeat Reborn. Even after using the Ten Year Bazooka to transform into 15-year-old Lambo, he was still too feeble to do so.
To the chagrin of Tsuna and Reborn, among others, Lambo will soon become a resident of the Sawada residence.
Despite his reputation as the show’s obnoxious mascot, I find myself enjoying this 203-episode shounen franchise’s animal protagonist nonetheless.
While he can’t control the electricity stored in his horns, both his present self and the 15-year-old version of him can be quite the sight when he unleashes his strength.
And even though the 25-year-old Lambo appears only briefly, he adds so much to Lambo’s value.
10. Denki Kaminari
My Hero Academia
In the real world, Denki Kaminari, aka Chargebolt, is one of those classmates who keep everyone riveted.
Whether or whether you’re as temperamental as Bakugo, he’ll still enjoy your company.
Denki may not have the best grades, but you’ll be impressed by his knowledge of art and literature.
Furthermore, he doesn’t have any hidden agenda behind his impulsive or less desirable behaviors.
Denki, on the other hand, will defend his peers if they are made fun of.
In fight, he may be nervous because he fears his Quirk will cause harm to his peers.
The Electrification of Denki has the ability to severely cripple anyone who dares to touch him.
And if Denki wishes, he may unleash a massive burst of lightning that travels through the air and ensnares anybody in its path.
While he can generate over a million volts of power, he will laugh nonstop for approximately an hour.
9. Ash’s Pikachu
Pokémon: The Movie
Ash’s Pikachu is the only furry species on this list worthy of inclusion.
For more than a decade now, Pikachu has been a household name, and he’s also one of the most recognizable characters in anime history.
Thunderbolt and Thunder Shock, two of Pikachu’s electrifying attacks, are well-known around the world.
If Ash isn’t around, he has excellent agility, a remarkable physical attack (considering his size), and the ability to lead other Pokémon if he is not.
When it comes to Pikachu, fans are drawn to his amiable nature and how he has helped Ash overcome many obstacles over the years, defeating other trainers while learning from their mistakes.
Pikachu and Ash are inseparable.
With Pokémon around, the phenomenon will only grow.
It’s a little world
In the face of the God of Skypiea, what can you possibly do?
It’s important to remember that Enel isn’t a divine creature endowed with all three of these attributes.
Deity’s Army is the name given to his fanatical followers since he thinks he’s a god.
A tall man from Birka who was given lightning powers by the Goro Goro no Mi is actually just a tall man from Birka who is nearly 9 feet tall.
Enel was able to master lightning with the help of this devil fruit:
He has the ability to unleash lightning bolts with a voltage of up to 200,000,000 volts. That’s a lot of power, but he needs it as the God of Skypiea.
He can also transform into lightning, which gives him lightning-fast reflexes and devastating power.
It was only fair that this hedonistic and conceited dictator be pitted against Luffy.
The MC’s rubber body was the perfect countermeasure to Enel’s invincibility.
7. Makoto Kino
Sailor Moon is an anime series.
The Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys swept the nation in the 1990s.
Fans of anime had their own girl band in the same style. Sailor Jupiter is one of the Sailor Guardians.
A delinquent by the name of Makoto Kino, she was the group’s tallest and most physically developed member.
When it came down to it, she was just like the rest of the girls in her school:
Aside from her love of gardening, baking and reading, Makoto was also fond of the color pink.
Her independence is also something to be admired.
Yes, she was forced to become more self-sufficient due to a horrible event.. Even so, seeing her provide the security and affection that life had taken away from her when she was young is amazing.
It is with this antenna in her tiara that she is able to unleash strong powers like Jupiter Thunder Hurricane and Supreme Thunder to protect her allies from bad forces and the general populace.
6. Ginji Amano
Comics: GetBackers Anime
GetBackers may not be a perfect translation of the manga, but it’s still a lot of fun when Ginji and Ban are at the helm.
For many years, Ginji was referred to as “The Lightning Emperor” for his leadership of the VOLTS gang at Infinity Fortress. Because no one dared to question him, he was able to keep his position uncontested.
Then again, that’s all in the past.
As Ban’s friend and coworker, Ginji adopts a more upbeat and optimistic personality, despite his comically poor sense of direction.
There must have been an explanation for why he was given this title.
Ginji uses the same violent lightning that engulfs the Infinity Fortress to power his abilities and abilities.
By manipulating electromagnetic waves, he can control the minds of others and produce lightning bolts with ease.
It’s a good thing that he’s now on the side of justice, given his powers.
5. Killua Zoldyck
It’s an anime series called “Hunter x Hunter.”
No matter how many episodes of Hunter x Hunter you have watched, you’ll agree that Killua Zoldyck is among the best.
It’s impossible to deny how much he’s loved.
Also, he is the assassin heir and best friend of Gon Freecs, the most famous hunter in the world.
When it comes to his weapon of choice—a custom-made custom yo-yo—a he’s young man who has the killing instincts of someone much older and more experienced.
The fact that he’s a skilled martial artist isn’t in question.
Killua’s Nen transformation bears the appearance of electricity because of this.
Because of the trauma he endured in the presence of his family, he was inspired to create the Whirlwind and Speed of Lightning abilities, which he used to improve his response time and general physical ability.
Despite his painful training, he was still able to exhibit youthful and childish behavior.
He also learnt to be more self-aware and considerate, especially toward his best friend.
4. Sasuke Uchiha
The Naruto Anime
A famous rivalry and friendship have been formed between Sasuke Uchiha and Naruto Uzumaki in anime.
Since Itachi killed the rest of their clan, his drive for power and desire to murder his own brother were among the most talked about themes among anime viewers in the 2000s.
For some reason, no one expected him to align with the Akatsuki or even Orochimaru in order to achieve his aim.
Since then, of course, things have improved.
Sasuke is happily married to Sakura and tries to be a good father to Sarada, despite the fact that he rarely visits Konoha.
The only thing that hasn’t changed is his ability to unleash devastating force.
Lightning Release is one of Sasuke’s most impressive skills, and you can’t deny that.
Kakashi gave him the Chidori, and he developed ninjutsu like Chidori Current and Chidori Senbon as a result of this training.
Finally, he can use Lightning Release to accelerate his speed and amplify the sharpness of the Sword of Kusanagi.
It’s darker than black in Anime
Even if a third season of Darker than Black is never made, Hei will always be a favorite of mine.
By some fans of the show, Hei is referred to be “Chinese electric Batman.”
Because he acquired his power from Bai, his younger sister, he doesn’t get paid like other contractors.
His ability to manipulate electricity and release it through conductive surfaces makes him the Black Reaper or BK-201.
Powerful knives and metal wire ensure that Hei’s ability to extend his reach extends far further than it would without these tools. As with Hei’s trench coat, it’s bulletproof and conductive as well.
Nevertheless, he’s in this position due of his hard journey to atonement.
Hei is unsure of who he is, yet he refuses to give up.
To get her back (and no one really knows what’s going on) is the only option for him now that she’s gone. In addition, he must deal with his history and stay alive in the face of all the threats he faces.
BK-201 isn’t usually the victorious team.
In the aftermath of losing Yin, he turned to drunkenness and pessimism, as well as violence.
Second season taught that there’s always a chance to get back on your feet.
2. Kakashi Hatake
The Naruto Anime
Although Kakashi’s Chidori may have been more developed by Sasuke, I think the character to be more interesting.
To say Kakashi’s life is difficult is an understatement.
At an early age, his mother died, and his father took his own life. He was a potential ninja, but others found it difficult to work with him because of his rigid commitment to the rules.
After the death of his teammates (Obito and Rin), he felt a strong sense of shame and isolation.
Kakashi’s mental state improved gradually thanks to the efforts of Sasuke, Naruto, and Sakura.
He had a profound impact on their development as individuals and as a group.
Even though Kakashi prefers to be alone, he’ll be there for Konoha no matter what.
As a result, he’s a formidable military thinker, military leader, and a soldier.
He can use Chidori, Lightning Release, and Purple Electricity, which he invented as the Sixth Hokage, with Lightning Release (among other natural changes).
Among his many accomplishments, Naruto characters and fans alike will remember Kakashi as the charismatic captain (and mentor) of Team 7.
1. Mikoto Misaka
Manga: A Scientific Railgun
Misaka Mikoto, MC of Toaru Kagaku no Railgun and the “One True Biri-Biri,” takes the top slot.
This esper’s lightning prowess is unmatched as Academy City’s most powerful Electomaster.
Mikoto’s ability to increase its voltage to one billion is five times greater than Enel’s highest capacity, which is one billion times greater than Mikoto’s.
The sheer volume of work she has done makes her the clear winner here.
It turns out that Mikoto is also a very popular and attractive MC.
My favorite thing about her Railgun is that she normally only uses coins to fire it, which demonstrates her incredible ability to turn even the tiniest metal pieces into deadly bullets.
Mikoto, on the other hand, is a fiery tsundere who can be immature and insecure (especially if it’s about her breast size) despite her reputation as a sophisticated young lady.
She has a soft spot for Gekota, the frog mascot of the school.
Finally, Mikoto maintains her humility despite her outstanding talents.
She is a hard-working person who has no issue making friends with people from all walks of life.
