Lightning is a special item in Crash Bash that appears in the Polar Push minigames (except for Melt Panic). When the player receives it, intense music starts playing. The player must try to keep it until the music ends. The music lasts for ten seconds. When a player charges into the player in possession of the lightning, they steal it. When the music ends, lightning strikes all opponents, immobilizing them for six seconds. This gives the player (and teammate if playing on teams) a chance for a free attack on the immobilized opponents.
