Darth Sidious was the ultimate Sith, yet one canon Star Wars Sith Lord had a Force lightning power that Palpatine never achieved. Star Wars’ Force lighting power was introduced in Return of the Jedi, when the mysterious Emperor shot lightning bolts from his fingertips against Luke Skywalker. The idea was for the Emperor, who did not carry a lightsaber in the film, to have a different fighting style compared to Darth Vader. Since then, several Star Wars characters have used Force Lightning, not just in the movies but in animated shows, comics, novels, and video games.
