A Burst's size and intensity could range anywhere from huge and combustible, to small, but relatively deadly. It was usually semi-transparent with a blue or green hue, where as the Sith variant had a reddish shade. The sphere of Force energy sought out its intended target with the utmost accuracy and speed.

A similar dark-side force ability identical to this ability is known as Force Destruction, where the user would unleash a force energy using their body as a conduit.
