Thunderstorm is a technique introduced in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. It allows the user to attack targets with electricity.


In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Thunderstorm is a Shotlock that has a maximum level of 4 and max lock of 5. After the initial volley, the player can perform extra attacks by pressing X at a specific time to fire additional blasts. The more accurate the player's button press, the more bursts will be fired.

In Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Thunderstorm is a Link Style used by Riku. It allows him to string together combos consisting of him spinning and dashing towards the enemy. He starts his combo by normally attacking the enemy, then he spins, dashes, fires thunder shots, and his finisher has him surging at the enemy at high speeds.

In Kingdom Hearts Union χ, Thunderstorm is a special attack that targets all enemies. It costs 4 special attack gauges to perform. It inflicts more damage the higher the user's HP.
