Vamp later known as Lightning was an ex-member of Dead Cell with vampire-like attributes, including a taste for blood, the ability to run across or stand on the surface of water or vertical walls, superhuman speed and agility, and the ability to shrug off and rapidly heal from the most extreme and fatal wounds. Besides his seemingly superhuman abilities, he was also an consider a wizard with knives and close quarters combat. After dying at Shadow Moses in 2014, he's body was collected by Chernov for the Elemental conversion experiment, and his entire body was rewritten on molecular level, and gained a body made out of Lightning fuelled by Nanomachines. He was able to manipulate this lightning, and weaponise it giving him a good defence, and a strong armour. After his conversion he was forced to fight for Chernov due to his nanomachines, expressed sympathy for that he wanted to be at peace.

Final Death

Lightning was finally killed again when Sword Snake supressed his nanomachines, and he walked himself into an anti-matter tank destroying himself on a molecular level to prevent himself from harming innocent people anymore. His death served as a means to allow Sword Snake to stop the other Elements.
