So to clarify...
— Lightning, on several occasions

Lightning is a former recommended character that could have joined Battle for Dream Island Again, but with only 93 votes, placed 47th, he did not have enough votes to join and was flung to the LOL.

Lightning later appeared in No More Snow!, along with Cloudy, striking a tree and making it fall over and crushing Pin, killing her.

Lightning's IDFB redesign features a more simplistic design and is shorter.


Lightning is a feisty killer who loves zapping people, even if he feels remorse. He affiliates with rude and other killers such as Fanny. His voice is similar to Liy and Ruby's. He does also not take orders from others, like Pencil telling him to zap Flower. He also appears to enjoy clarification.[citation needed]


Lightning appears to be a lightning bolt, a form of plasma. The outline is olive, and the inside is bright yellow. It is debatable what Lightning actually is because real lightning bolts last a fraction of a second and disappear. This is clearly not the case with Lightning.
