Electricity Manipulation is the ability to generate and control electricity through natural or artificial means.


It is rather rare for a person to gain this ability. Volten attained this ability by getting struck by lightning as a child, which was amplified by the consumption of a monster cell. The monsters Maiko Plasma and Electric Catfish Man also have this ability. Orochi can use this ability in his final form. Using his electrified batons, Lightning Genji can utilize electricity as well. Genos can use electricity thanks to his cyborg modifications.

Thanks to the Ninja Village Leader's secret scroll, Speed-o'-Sound Sonic is able to utilize an electricity-based technique called Speed of Sound Electric Discharge Fist, which paralyzes the targets when struck.[1]
