As the principal protagonist of her saga, Lightning represents it in series compilations, crossovers, anthologies, and other works by Square Enix, and by others in collaboration with Square Enix. The following is a list of works in which Lightning has appeared outside the Final Fantasy XIII series.

Series appearancesEdit

Final Fantasy XIVEdit

XIV

Lightning XIV

Lightning in Final Fantasy XIV.

Lightning appeared in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn during the Lightning Strikes event to commemorate the release of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Final Fantasy XIV producer, Naoki Yoshida, said the sidequest was tied directly into the Lightning Saga, but not linked with the lore and story of Final Fantasy XIV.[1]

The rewards from this event consisted of Lightning and Snow's costumes as well as a set of weapons from the trilogy.

Since Patch 2.1, the female playable characters can have Lightning's hairstyle by using the Aesthetician's service.

Triple TriadEdit

Lightning appears as a legendary (5-stars) card. It used to be the most powerful card with its total number of 36 (9 A 7 A) before Square Enix quickly decreases it to 27 (9 1 7 A) during an emergency server maintenance they had shortly after the Gold Saucer update.

Lightning appeared as a recruitable character. She was of the Visitor race and had Guardian Corps and Savior as her main jobs. Her attacks were Dual Shot and Crimson Blitz respectively, and her ability was Army of One.

Dissidia Final Fantasy (2008)Edit

Dissidia Lightning appears in Dissidia Final Fantasy as a set of two player icons to represent Final Fantasy XIII, though these icons can only be obtained through passwords.

Tetsuya Nomura and his staff originally wanted to include Lightning in Dissidia Final Fantasy, but left her out to avoid revealing her abilities before Final Fantasy XIII was released.[2]

Dissidia 012 Final FantasyEdit

Dissidia012

Lightning (Dissidia 012)

Lightning is one of the warriors summoned by Cosmos to oppose Chaos, and stands as the hero and sole character representing Final Fantasy XIII. Initially traveling with Tifa, Laguna, and Vaan, Lightning is left behind when she battles Kuja. Shortly after an army of manikins sweeps over the land, Lightning is attacked by Kain.

Returning to Cosmos to tell her what is happening, Lightning faces the Warrior of Light, who reveals he and Kain are putting the others to sleep on purpose to avoid them falling to the manikins and risking not being revived in the next cycle of the war. Lightning rejects this plan and leads Kain, Tifa, Laguna, Yuna and Vaan to the Lands of Discord where the six sacrifice themselves to seal the portal to the Void the manikins are emerging from.

Lightning's alternate outfit gives her white hair and a more subdued color scheme to match her concept art by Yoshitaka Amano. Her second alternate costume gives her the generic female Guardian Corps uniform, a dull orange and brown outfit with a cap. As a fourth bonus outfit available with purchase of The 3rd Birthday, Lightning dresses as Aya Brea, wearing torn blue jeans and a midriff bearing sleeveless black shirt.

Nomura has stated he personally would include Sazh in a Dissidia sequel over Lightning, but his only request for such a game would be Kain Highwind from Final Fantasy IV - Kain and Lightning were the first two new characters confirmed for Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy.

LightningEdit
CV: Ali Hillis / Maaya Sakamoto

Notes: Virtuous / Looks out for other people / On the stoic side / Genius with a sword / One of this age's greatest warriors
Reading Into the Outfit
Lightning is looking great in her outfit from LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII. But does that mean her soul might actually be over 500 years old? No wonder it only took her 21 years in Grymoire to become something of a living legend—and that was before the twins awakened her.
Lightning's superhuman skills drew the attention of Quistis and Squall, who tracked her down and persuaded her to lend her strength to the League of S.
