Lightning is an Attack spell available in Fable, Fable: The Lost Chapters, and Fable Anniversary. Lightning causes lightning to fly from the hand of the Hero towards the enemy he is targeting. While at first the Hero can only do minimal damage to one enemy with Lightning, by the time he has fully upgraded to level 4, he can hit four enemies at once, and do around 60 damage. The main difference between Lightning from Fable, Fable: The Lost Chapters, and Fable Anniversary, and Shock from Fable II, is that Lightning can be sustained for prolonged amounts of time, whereas Shock cannot. This can work to the heroes advantage, as he can hold off a total of 4 enemies while at a safe distance.


This spell creates an arc of pure energy which leaps from the fingertips of the caster to the target. Higher levels can strike more than one foe at a time.

  • The Lightning spell causes enemies that are hit to flinch. This excludes some bosses and all trolls. It is also a long range spell, making it perfect for ambushing small groups of enemies.
