Electricity Manipulation

Electrokinesis is the power to control and manipulate electricity. With this power, merpeople also can conjure a lightning from the sky on any target and start a fire, if so desired.


Rikki when she conjures lightning from the sky accidentally, for the second time in the series. Rikki also conjured lightning that hit the ground, only to frighten Charlotte. Merpeople also can cause explosions in electronic devices that depends on electricity, like cellphones.  It's amplified version of Hydro-Thermokinesis that merpeople receive in the Moon Pool during a planetary alignment.

In "Stormy Weather" Rikki looks at the full moon and swims to Mako Island with the girls and was in the Moon Pool during the special planetary alignment which magnifies her original power to Electrokinesis and ends up making a lightning storm. This can be made stronger with the help of her fellow mermaids.

With the combined the amplified elemental abilities of Emma and Cleo, Rikki can create a full on storm that is supremely powerful and very dangerous. This effect is show in the second season premiere "Stormy Weather " and now with their new abilities especially Rikki has the most dangerous power. Rikki doesn't seem to use this power much in season 2 other than a few times and it is seen a little bit during season 3. She mainly used this power on the wall of the moon pool. She also used this on Ryans walkie-talkie. The hand movement for this is the same as before, however Rikki is shown suddenly opening palm in the chosen direction when summoning lightning, this may signify the sudden release of energy needed when conjuring lightning.

Rita Santos and Nixie are shown using this power in "Battlelines". Rita is shown using this power creating a storm in a jar when teaching the girls and Nixie is shown using this ability when she creates the storm in a jar as well. In "Betrayal", the Trident can control lightning. In "Stormy Seas", Sirena and Ondina have a contest of mermaid powers and after Ondina whippd up a storm over the ocean, Sirena used it against her and conjured lightning.
