“Stuns the target and deals a large amount of damage for an energy cost.”
- - In game description
The Lighting Striker is a melee weapon,
The Lightning Striker consists of a small unit (like a power supply or a handle) at the base of a large blade. It is mostly colored a metallic grey with a single green light on top, but a couple of patches on the base of the Striker have the Captain's coat color.
The Striker is similar in many ways to the Bladed Knuckles, only its effects are far more damaging. Like the Knuckles, it cannot be used if there is not enough energy to power the "Lightning" part of the Lightning Strike. There are also some slight differences. For example, increasing the power level doesn't increase the length of the blade, but adds more blades to the Striker.
If the Striker is placed on a Captain's tail (if the Captain has one) then the Captain will swing/flip around to use it.
The damage and energy usage can be found in the instruction booklet of Spore Galactic Adventures, on page 4.

The Striker's attack is its "Lightning Strike", a high-powered stabbing attack that hits the target and electrocutes it. This can be fatal to most opponents in a couple of hits (especially on Strikers at higher levels), made worse for them since the Strike stuns them and prevents them from defending themselves or retaliating. Lightning Strike replaces the Shaman Icy Band attack, and both of them replace Strike.
The Lightning Striker can hit multiple targets at the same time. The primary target takes more damage than adjacent foes. Adjacent foes are not stunned.
- It is possible that this weapon was inspired by the Lightsabers of Star Wars or Energy Swords from the Halo series. It could also be based off the Protoss Zealot's blade energy weapons from StarCraft™.
