Electricity is an elemental effect that is dealt from weapon effects and/or Red Knight's magic. damage. Killer Beekeepers, Fire Demons, Skeletons, Dragon and Sock Puppet, Fencers, Industrialists, Ninjas, Scarabs, Snakeys, Medusa, and the Painter all resist Electricity. Barbarians, Trolls, Bears, Slimes, Coneheads, Conehead Groom, Royal Guards, Corn Boss, and the Fishmen all are weak to Electricity. Red Knight is the only character that can cast Electricity Magic Attacks. He can manipulate his electricity by holding it for a quite a bit at maximum potential, leading to good damage, at the exchange of a drained mana bar.  


A player can tell when the Electricity status effect has been inflicted when a small lightning bolt spews out of the weapon. Another indication of the Electricity status effect is when the enemy gets electrocuted and shows off the enemy's skeleton.

Weapon effects with this modifier tend to be mediocre, unviable weapons.


Not all weapons inflict the Electricity status effect. If the description of a weapon contains a lightning bolt symbol Lightning icon.png, it indicates that the weapon is capable of inflicting it.

Enemies wielding these weapons will have the same chances of inflicting Electricity damage. This remains true for Beefies.

Here is a list of weapons that grants the player with the Electricity status effect.

  • Electricity does not provide any damage over time, and the electric stun is shorter than an enemy's normal flinch time, so having the electric effect happen at specific times will leave you vulnerable to enemy attacks where it wouldn't have normally.
