Thunder (サンダー Sandā?), Thundara (サンダラ Sandara?), and Thundaga (サンダガ Sandaga?) are a series of magic introduced in Kingdom Hearts. They utilize the element of Lightning, and are associated with the Lightning material. Thunder spells summon lightning bolts from the sky to rain down on enemies, dealing Thunder-type damage.

Thunder is the first magic spell to appear in the Kingdom Hearts series. Donald Duck uses it to wake up a sleeping Goofy.

Mechanics[edit]

Kingdom Hearts[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts, Thundaga darkens the area and summons a cascade of lightning upon the targets.

In Kingdom Hearts, Thunder is offensive magic that can be used by Sora and Donald. Thunder calls down bolts of lightning to strike the target area. It is useful for hitting a group of enemies a distance. The higher-tier Thundara and Thundaga call down greater numbers of more powerful lightning bolts. Thunder costs 1 MP to use, and its power is determined by the following equations:

  • Thunder: Power = (Max MP x 2)+ 14.
  • Thundara: Power = (Max MP x 2) + 18.
  • Thundaga: Power = (Max MP x 2) + 22.

Genie may cast Thunder as part of his Showtime ability.

Thunder magic can be used to activate certain objects in the field, including the exposed wires in the Third District that activate the platforms inside the Gizmo Shop, certain kind of flowers in Wonderland, and the stone tablet on the upper level of the Entrance Hall that activates the moving platforms.

Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories[edit]

In Re:Chain of Memories, the initial onslaught of lightning is summoned at the same time.

In Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories, Thunder is a magic card that can be used by Sora.

The Genie summon card, the Donald and Jack Skellington friend cards, and their associated sleights can cast Thunder magic when used. Larxene also uses Thundara as her magic attack.

The Thunder card can be used in the following sleights:

Aqua activating her Thundaja spell in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage-.

In Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage-, Thundaga is a default offensive spell in which Aqua creates an expanding ring around a target. As the ring expands, bolts of thunder rain down, inflicting damage to anything caught in the radius.
