Black Lightning is a unique form of Lightning Release utilised by the Third Raikage, who passed it on to Darui alone. Not much is known about it, but as the name suggests, the lightning produced is black in colour.
However in some areas there have been known to a clan capable of doing so. However, he clan's name or location was never stated. The manga stated the clan were descendants of dragons.
- Both users have the stylised kanji for "lightning" (雷, kaminari) tattooed on their shoulders; Darui on his left and the Third on his right. This seems to be a distinctive tradition, as Ginkaku and Kinkaku recognised Darui's possession of this ability through his tattoo.
- Sasuke Uchiha demonstrated the ability to use something resembling this when he fought against Naruto Uzumaki at the Valley of the End in Part I, and when he attacked Madara Uchiha in the Fourth Shinobi World War after receiving Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki's power.
