Black Lightning is a unique form of Lightning Release utilised by the Third Raikage, who passed it on to Darui alone.[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" (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.[2]
  • Sasuke Uchiha demonstrated the ability to use something similar to this, once when he fought against Naruto at the Valley of the End[3] and subsequently after receiving Hagoromo's power.[4]
