Initially a forum post if it weren't for more "Interesting posts..."
Note: You can get the game HERE.
First, I'd like to apologize for what happened 6 months ago; I previously didn't know any better at such a point. But now I'm back, and I HAVE been studying up over the past 1/2 year, and you won't expect much unless I perfect such pages myself.
Game: Wonderful World
Question: Is Duna's electricity true electricity?
Anyways, let's find back my case up somehow via the wiki's rulings...
Most lightning in fiction are not real lightning. Often they are supernatural in nature and are possibly not even electricity. Therefore lightning are only accepted as such under certain circumstances.
- Cloud-to-ground lightning are considered to be real lightning as long there is nothing suggesting otherwise.
- Lightning bolts from electrical devices can usually be considered as real lightning, as long as the purpose of the device is not to produce lighting strikes. That may intuitively sound strange, but many lightning weapons actually just produce energy beams, while things like broken circuits usually do have proper electricity flowing. Some more realistic devices like Tesla coils can most likely be accepted as real lightning none the less.
- Lightning directly produced by a character is only considered as real lightning if it has demonstrated some properties real lightning has. Some examples are: making muscles of hit beings contract, having an (electro)magnetic field, being shown to actually move with a speed similar to lightning, flowing through conducting materials, the character being able to manipulate real electricity or electromagnetism in general, generating ozone or causing electrolysis.
With all that in stone, let's begin:
While Duna's Lightning is the topic of this specific kind of Ruling, here's what I know: Chain Lightning starts with an electric orb Duna shoots out with the electricity surrounding her. It shoots wherever it targets via the O button, as the shot is fired down, it can be blocked, or backhopped. Due to the guiding of the electric strike, I'm guessing in that way, it's not true lightning.
The Electrical device of choice is Duna's Sword. It can absorb Duna's Lightning in some attacks via a fictional alloy core that for the most part, can store lightning, making the alloy more powerful... One move uses the lightning stored to combine a slash with a thunderbolt.
It doesn't show it in game but Duna CAN electrocute foes, thus messing with their muscles. Lightning flows around Duna, and even her sword (Which as mentioned, has an alloy core that conducts it.), The verse seems to have Lightning Fast Reaction Speed (Some characters have Massively Hypersonic Reactions.), (Chain lightning, among other attacks of hers, manipulates lightning in many ways, but can be blocked, or in some cases, evaded completely.) Duna can actually manipulate her own Lightning and change its form in combat (Feathers, and Torus' for instance.), the only thing it can't do as far as I'm concerned is that it doesn't produce ozone or cause Elecrolysis in any way.
Have you been playtesting up to this point? Good, because I now have info needed to decide if the Wonderful World verse is infact Lightning Fast.
Also, as last minute sections:
Duna's lightning states that her Discharged Electricity is singular, thus isn't magic, yet there is separate magic from it.

I can't translate the Japanese myself (Google Translate is terrible at many languages.); I'll need help there, in case anyone wants to correct me.
So, Is this lightning real, or just regular energy? I'm guessing no... The rest is up to you...
BONUS: Duna Pics:
Before we begin, I just wanted to back up my case as nobody was playing this game. this is so I can simply prove Duna's lightning is not magic. Also, to scale:
Canon Height: 158cm/5'1" Approx
In-Game px Height: 201px
With all input in... Let's begin:
Now for Duna's Height.
MOAR Chain LIGHTNING!!!
Duna's many "Lightning" attacks come in many forms... Such as...
But it's actually...
But I saved the best for last... Duna's Finish Skill: Thunder Spread!
Now I need help from the Calc team: Is any of this real lightning? Also, I want to see if Chain Lightning is dodgable by the rest of the verse. No Blocking, no Fatal Switches/Moment Attacks/or Force revivals. Just Running, and Side Hopping please.
Thank you for the time, and... Good Luck. The link to the game is on the top.
