Lightning Crystal (KHII)

A Lightning Crystal, the rarest of the Lightning materials

Lightning (とどろく Todoroku?, lit. "Thundering"), also translated as Thunder in Kingdom Hearts, is a material type available in Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts II, and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. Lightning materials contain the essence of Thunder, and are colored yellow.


Lightning materials are represented by yellow-orange jewels with what seem to be bolts of electricity trapped in them. They have an Elemental material structure.

"Lightning" is an atmospheric electrical discharge. The sound of this discharge is referred to as "thunder". This reflects the electricity and "essence of thunder" the material contains.
