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


While stated by Jiggmin to be taken from the Mario Kart series,[1] the item differs in terms of effects. Once grabbed, a player can use it at any time to send up bolts at all other users on the map, which will briefly stun them for several seconds, along with remove 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, containing a symbol for a lightning bolt around a yellow glow inside. Platform Racing 3 altered the design by giving it a blue, water-ish color that has several smaller lightning bolts inside.
