Black Lightning is a unique form of Lightning Release utilised by the Third Raikage, who passed it on to Darui alone. Not much is known about it, but as the name suggests, the lightning produced is black in colour.
- Both users have the stylised kanji for "lightning" (雷, kaminari) tattooed on their shoulders; Darui on his left and the Third on his right. This seems to be a distinctive tradition, as Ginkaku and Kinkaku recognised Darui's possession of this ability through his tattoo.
- Sasuke Uchiha demonstrated the ability to use something resembling this when he fought against Naruto Uzumaki at the Valley of the End in Part I, and when he attacked Madara Uchiha in the Fourth Shinobi World War after receiving Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki's power.
- Kakashi Hatake's lightning attack also became black in colour after receiving the Six Paths Power from Obito Uchiha while battling against Kaguya Ōtsutsuki in the Fourth Shinobi World War.
