The Lightning Bolt spell (summoned by the Fulgur glyph in Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia and called Thunderbolt in Castlevania: Harmony of Despair) is a signature attack of the Thunder Demon. The demon summons a giant ball of lightning in its arms which then heads toward its enemy.
The Lightning Bolt can be captured from the Thunder Demon in some games. Its glyph, Fulgur, can be absorbed by Shanoa in Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (Shanoa calls out the spell name "Lightning Bolt" in the game). Its attack can be absorbed by Charlotte Aulin in Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, and its soul grants Soma Cruz this attack in that game. It cannot be used by Shanoa in Harmony of Despair.
When used by a player, a quickly growing ball of lightning expands from the extended hands, which then travels slowly about halfway across the screen. When leveled up, the distance that it travels increases.
Additionally, a spell named Lightning Ball from Castlevania: Circle of the Moon functions similarly to this lightning-based ability. It is a DSS ability which can be used by combining the Apollo and Thunderbird cards.
