Lightning occurs in NetHack in several forms:
- A ray attack that deals shock damage, caused by:
- The lightning monster spell
- A potentially deadly bolt of lightning sent by a deity to smite you for angering him/her
- The occasional lightning strikes that occur while in a cloud on the Plane of Air
- The lightning that strikes a target hit by Mjollnir
- The lightning attack spell that can be learned in SLASH'EM
The effects of these forms of lightning are covered by the shock article, which deals with electrical damage of any kind. On this wiki, "lightning" may be used as a synonym for shock damage in general.
