You mean the one where it says Vader's powerful enough to use it but his armor would **** up?

No the one that says he can cause clouds to form in the air and call lightning down from them.

That's an entirely different power than lightning.

Exar Kun faced like 30 tuk'ata and it's confirmed there. Do any of you have the quote?

I can't imagine any quote exists stating that.

Kun kills some tuk'ata on Korriban, but I don't recall any works recounting that stage of Tales of the Jedi besides your standard encyclopedic entry, and I doubt they would get so specific to actually give a number.

Apparently there's a quote from Return of the Jedi: Beware the Power of the Dark Side! which states that the Emperor could've escaped Vader's grasp when Vader lifted him up but wanted to punish his apprentice for his betrayal or something. Does anybody have it?

When at last he reaches the open shaft he hurls the Emperor down into the reactor. It’s a long, long way down and the Emperor fires his lightning upward as he falls.

He might still have used his powers to save himself, but his hate is now so strong his only thought is to cause Vader more pain. So the lightning continues to flicker and flash even after the body is out of sight.

Ah, so he could have saved himself even as he fell down the shaft but was blinded by his hatred. Seems somewhat out-of-character for him to not even consider other options, although I suppose the dark side was continually subsuming his mind and at this point he was practically possessed by it.

The other thing being of course that Sidious excelled at planning things over time, but not making snap decisions in the heat of things - probably because he almost never needed to.

Palpatine lost control of his power at the end. He was unable to direct his lightning at anything - he merely unleashed it in a raw expression of hatred.

Seems in character for the dark side to ultimately consume him in the moment where he needed it most. That's what the dark side does. thumb up

I'm pretty sure he lost control as soon as Vader lifted him up - he was genuinely surprised by the betrayal. Otherwise, the loss of control would've been caused by something in between the lifting and the throwing, and I have no idea what that would be.

EDIT: He had enough control to direct it at Vader when he was first lifted up, but somehow he continued to lose control over time and by the time Vader threw him over the edge, his Lightning was spiraling out uncontrollably.

Palpatine was the absolute best at seizing advantage of any situation at any moment.

The loss of control came with Vader's betrayal (i.e. the Chosen One prophecy being completed). thumb up

He was the best at planning, lol. When Yoda confronted him unexpectedly, Palpatine tried to run away at first.

In any case, this all seems to support the idea that Palpatine was unleashing everything on Vader but Vader was durable enough to survive the Lightning - or at least, just long enough to throw Palpatine overboard.
