Force Lightning occurred in at least four colors; '''blue''', '''green''', '''yellow''' and '''red'''. The standard color was a bluish-purple as demonstrated by Palpatine, Dooku, Snoke, and Rey; Nightsister Magic equivalents were green like [[Magical ichor]] as demonstrated by [[Mother (title)|Mother]] [[Talzin]]. Lord [[Momin]] used yet another version that was yellow. It would appear that the most powerful manifestation was "red" as it was used by the [[Son]] (the manifestation of the Dark Side itself) and the disembodied spirit of [[Anakin Skywalker|Darth Vader]] when he entered the portal in his castle on [[Mustafar]]. Anakin blasted the illusion of his master, [[Darth Sidious|Emperor Palpatine]] with red Force lightning after the latter tried to bar him from going to the balcony to see Padme.<ref name="Darth Vader 25">[[Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith 25|''Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith'' 25]]</ref> Momin planned to pour the Force with his version of Force lightning into his engine at the moment of ignition and use it to slow down time, trapping the expressions of horror and pain on the city's inhabitants forever.<ref name="Dark Lord 22" />
