i've never seen a system where "lightning" qualifies as a separate element....
*Edit* GAH. it's from Naruto. i should have guessed. they love to be very.... "liberal" with their so-called elements.
..i mean.. "sound"? come on... prfectly valid attack method.. very silly as an "element".


As much as I hate quoting a two-year-old post,I must say that Avatar:The Last Airbender had lightning as well.

holy necro-posting batman.

and i'm not really sure i get the point of your quote -- i saw avatar before i wrote that.

Avatar did -not- have lightning as a separate element.
it was a top-tier fire ability, same as how "metal-bending" was a top-tier earth ability.
i think water's top-tier trick was "blood bending" ? i don't recall.
i have no idea what, if any, top-tier trick air had.

Was that how it was?Jesus,not only did I do the necro-post of the week,but I also gave some completely useless false information. I'll just hide in my corner,then.

Edit:In a last ditch attempt to regain my honor,I looked up whether there was a 'top-tier' trick for air-bending or not.I guess you could classify the Air Sphere that Aang used at the end as the most powerful mobile/defensive trick that air has to offer,with it enabling you the ability to fly in the air,deflect most incoming attacks and do both rather quickly.I wouldn't group it with metal and lightning-bending,however.Welp,pardon me for inconveniencing you,sir.

Fire since I can use it for multiple everyday reasons and it's probably fun to fight people with it.
