    Though most often associated with the Dark Side of the Force (such that some iterations of the Jedi Order outright forbade its use), Force Lightning is not a power restricted to Dark Siders, and many Jedi and other Force Users not aligned with the Sith have made use of the power.

    Though his mechanical limbs is said to have made generation of Force Lightning impossible for him, Darth Vader has nevertheless shown the ability to use it in a few Star Wars video games.
