Black Lightning is a unique form of Lightning Release utilised by the Third Raikage, who passed it on to Darui.[1] Not much is known about it but as the name suggests, the lightning produced by this ability's techniques is black in colour.


  • Both users have the stylised kanji for "lightning" (, kaminari) tattooed on their shoulders; Darui on his left and the Raikage on his right. This seems to be a distinctive trait, as Ginkaku and Kinkaku recognised Darui's possession of this ability through his tattoo.[2]
  • Sasuke used similar technique which generates black-colored lightning due to Cursed Seal against Naruto in their fight.
  • It is similar to Amaterasu in that it is the only other black-coloured elemental technique.
