Ishi - Ishi's Chain Lightning is among the most powerful. It is used from Gilgamesh, which from the start increases its power, and requires physical contact, or close enough to it. Ishi's Chain Lightning is meant to deal extreme damage to multiple enemies instantly. The arcing effect is instantaneous among a crowd of enemies, appearing as one bright blue lightning bolt strung between each enemy that quickly disappears. However, the damage this does in such a short time is incredibly high, being able to instantly destroy most enemies, while higher level enemies and bosses that can survive it will most likely be stunned for a while by the powerful and impacting shock. Ishi is able to control which enemies to hit among a crowd, adding precision to this already powerful skill, and is able to adjust the power of the attack to lower or heighten damage dealt. At higher levels of power it can be used at range.

If used at maximum power, this attack will backlash on Ishi, causing considerable damage to himself, but dealing innumerable amounts of damage to his target, enough to almost assuredly destroy any target, even levels above him.
