She first appeared as a playable character and protagonist in the role-playing video game Final Fantasy XIII , in which she features as a resident of the artificial world of Cocoon. After her sister Serah is declared an enemy of Cocoon, Lightning attempts to save her. She and others are then chosen by the fal'Cie, a divided race of demigods who rule the worlds of Gran Pulse and Cocoon, to destroy Cocoon. She is the sole playable character in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII , wherein she sets out to save her world, which is destined to end in thirteen days. Their idea was to create a strong female protagonist who was adept at combat and less feminine than previous Final Fantasy heroines.

Lightning Returns employs a highly revamped version of the gameplay system from the previous two games, with an action-oriented battle system, the ability to customize the player character's outfits, and a time limit the player must extend by completing story missions and side quests. The game's story takes place five hundred years after the previous game's ending. Lightning , the main protagonist of the first game and a key character in the second, awakes from a self-imposed hibernation 13 days before the world's end, and is chosen by the deity Bhunivelze to save the people of the dying world, including former friends and allies who have developed heavy emotional burdens. As she travels, she learns the full truth behind both the world's fate and Bhunivelze's true agenda. Most of the previous games' key creative minds and developers returned, and it was developed by Square Enix's First Production Department, with developer tri-Ace helping with the graphics.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII
This solitary young woman speaks little of herself—even her true name is a mystery. She is known to others simply as 'Lightning'. Lightning is the second main female protagonist in a mainstream numbered Final Fantasy game, with Terra Branford from Final Fantasy VI generally accepted as being the first. Lightning is a young woman with wavy rose pink hair and pale aqua eyes. Lightning's eye color has been officially noted to be blue, though in the FMVs and promotional art they often appear green due to green aspects around the pupil.
