- I don't think so. It's an ability purely derived from the dark side of the Force, and I didn't see any indication that Yoda was channeling the dark side. I'm not even sure if he could, since being fully immersed in the light side is a condition for becoming a Force spirit in the first place. As far as I could tell, he merely summoned a bolt of lightning from the sky, whereas every example of Force lightning I can think of depicts that power as being channeled directly through the user's hands.

- I asked only cos I saw on the Yoda article that his updated powers sections refers to his lightinng strike as Force Lightning and links to that article. --StargateFanBB (talk) 01:33, December 21, 2017 (UTC)
Anyone opposed to me adding the Jedi as an affiliation with Master and Apprentice as a source due to Dooku using it well before he fell to the dark side. Darth Tomotron (talk) 11:36, August 25, 2019 (UTC)

Ben Solo? Edit
I thought that was a Force vision, we even see Palpatine is talking while Ben Solo fights with Ren?
- Yeah, the lightning doesn't seem to come from Ben in the comic, it surrounds him and Ren as they fall. It's a bit too much speculation to say he's the one causing it. RattsT (talk) 21:04, May 11, 2020 (UTC)
Positive/Good uses for Force Lightning Edit
Defribulator to restart a heart/revive someone. Emergency Power/Battery Charge. Reactivating Droids. Imagine a Jedi posted to a field hospital camp, power goes out in a storm, Force Lightning to the rescue!
