Honkai Star Rial has gained massive success as a result of its breathtaking world design, brilliant plotline, and exciting characters. Each of the playable units belongs to either of the seven available elements, which are Physical, Fire, Ice, Lightning, Wind, Quantum, and Imaginary. Among them, those who harness the power of Lightning excel at multi-target damage applications for any team.

Currently, the aforementioned element has claimed the maximum number of characters in Honkai Star Rail. Moreover, it has a healthy balance of 4-star and 5-star units to fulfill the role of either a DPS, sub-DPS, or support. The following article will track down each of the Lightning characters that are available in the title.

Bailu is arguably the strongest healer in the game due to her expertise in the field of medicine. She is a young lady from the Vidyadhara race who also gets recognized as the “Healer Lady.” In fact, her healing is so strong that it can keep all her allies alive throughout the course of a battle.


While Baliu’s basic attack is the primary source of Lightning damage, both the skill and ultimate are designed to heal her teammates. Additionally, she also applies the invigoration buff that restores HP on taking damage. Thus, she remains true to her support role as she can replenish everyone’s health bar during combat.

Trailblazers gets introduced to Kafka at the beginning of the game’s campaign. She immediately grabs everyone’s attention due to her unparalleled charm and jaw-dropping animation. Moreover, Hoyoverse depicted her as a calm character who can also showcase extreme combat abilities on the battlefield.

As a member of the Stellaron Hunters, Kafka carries a sub-machinegun to inflict Lightning DMG to her enemies. Additionally, she can take advantage of her Shocked debuff to dish out more damage by the end of a turn. Her unique kit allows her to deal both single-target and multi-target damage, making her a great DPS option for any team.

Jing Yuan

According to the Honkai Star Rail lore, Jing Yuan is one of the six Cloud Knight generals of the Xianzhou Luofu. He is considered a meticulous person who used his careful management to acquire years worth of peace.

Jing Yuan is certainly considered a lazy general, but his combat abilities are superior to most of the AoE characters in the game. He deals massive Lightning damage to multiple enemies and can buff it using his ultimate ability. Hence, he can be a phenomenal DPS unit in a team that makes use of a buffer to push his damage even further.



Arlan is the head of the Herta Space Station’s security department. He has a dutiful personality, which stems from his goal to protect everyone around him. Despite being a serious person, he wears a smile on his face while holding his beloved dog, Peppy.

In Honkai Star Rail, Arlan is a glass cannon DPS unit who deals massive damage at the cost of his own HP. Moreover, his abilities allow him hit a targeted enemy and anyone adjacent to them. Thus, he can be an extremely potent addition to the team when backed up with a dedicated healer.


Tingyun is a meta 4-star support in the game

Tingyun’s official description suggests that she is the Head Representative of the ‘Whistling Flames’ merchant guild. Moreover, she is good with her words, which allows her to captivate her audience.

Players who have Tingyun should consider themselves lucky, as she is one of the meta-support units in the game. Her Lightning damage is surely good against shields, but her value comes from her buffs that increases the ATK and energy recharge of allies.


Serval is one of the most popular Lightning character in the game

Lastly, Serval is another 4-star unit who manifests the power of Lightning through her love for rock ‘n’ roll. She is the rebellious daughter of the Landau family of Belobog and the hoist of the “Neverwinter” workshop.

Serval is one of the few characters that players should build at the beginning of their Honkai Star Rail journey. She harnesses electrifying AoE abilities which allow her to break multiple shields using her ultimate ability. As a Lightning unit, she fulfills the role of a sub-DPS for accounts that lacks any of the other characters on this list.
