The Thunder Spear, a part of the lightning-elemental equipment set.

Lightning equipment (サンダー, Sandā?) is a recurring type of equipment in the Final Fantasy series. Although less in number than its brethren flame equipment and ice equipment, Lightning equipment has been around since Final Fantasy II. It is also known as Thunder, Bolt, Yellow, Spark, and sometimes Shock or Shocking equipment, depending on which game it is featured in, and sometimes changes between names in the same game.

It should not be confused with diamond equipment, which occasionally has the attribute of resistance to Lightning. It includes body armor, helmet, shield, the recurring Coral Sword, rod, staff, bow, spear, gloves, and armlets, although weapons are more recurring, due to the existence of the aforementioned Diamond equipment.
