I actually would think that it's not the cyber limbs that are a factor in Vader not generating the Force Lightning but the risk to his life support system shorting out.  I take it that the hands are just the means to "aim" the force lightning not a means to generate it.  If a Sith lord were so inclined he could probably shot Force Lightning out his A$$  ;D  I say this that a force user can move an object without without using his hands to do it, it's just that you use your hands to guide.  Also on a side note using the hands to move things with the force might be a more visual thing for the movie watcher rather then a necessity to move things.  Meaning well who throw that or who moved this you know who did it because of that person on screen used there hands.

OK,

as established by the current EU and ROTS: a sith lord(or lady) with mechanical parts cannot summon Force lightening due to the fact that it would destroy the circuts and cause the limb to be useless.

yet in Jedi, Luke is pummeled to the floor by Darth Sidious's onslaught of dark force lightening and after this massive amount of torture. his mechanical hand still works? i mean yeah yeah it took a blaster shot  on the barge, but this really contradicts established lore.

are we supposed to believe Luke's hand is the only one capable of withstanding this? we can't write it off as more advanced than Vader's whole BODY or lumiyas imperial funded cybernetic replacements can we? also since thirty-seven years later in LOTF this is still the case. so....?

This is what Purge was replying to...

I still don't view it as a flaw myself though.  To me it's just as easy to say "Vader just doesn't dig the FL" as it is to say it's a mechanical impossibility.

This all relies on the assumption that all Sith have the ability shoot lightning. Maybe Vader can't shoot lightning, just like he couldn't revive the dead.

Bionic parts prevent from developping force lighting power?
« Reply #21 on: July 17, 2008, 01:44 AM »
Darth Tyranus developped force lighting power in 10 years time, but Darth Vader spent 24 years with Palpatine and he didnīt acquire that skill. We can suppose it is due to the bionic or cyborg implants, both hands arenīt natural.

But In SWTFU, Vader Secret apprentice developped force lighting power, well probably because he has all his natural parts. A small incongruence with the Sw facts could be Vader throwing force lighting.

But Vader, Anakin a powerful sith, former jedi must have alternative to equal this lack of force lighting

He overcome Palpatine in Rotj with an Herculean feat, lifting the emperor and sending him to the DS2 reactor.


Please share your opinions about the acquisition of force lighting among sith.
