Lightning is an item in the Platform Racing series that can be found inside item blocks.


While stated by Jiggmin to be taken from the Mario Kart series, the item slightly differs in its effects.[1] Once grabbed, a player can send bolts of lightning at everyone else on the map, briefly stunning them for several seconds along with removing their hat in Platform Racing 3.

Players wearing the Party Hat are immune to its effect, however.


In the first two installments, the item had a round appearance with a symbol for a lightning bolt around a yellow glow inside. PR3 altered the design by giving it a blue, water-ish color that has several smaller lightning bolts inside.
