    Default Help finding a Japanese word

    This has been bugging me for a while now; there's a word I've heard in several places now that I really like, but have never been able to find; it means "lightning" or "thunder", and phonetically, my best guess is something like "izcacion" or something to that effect. I've tried Google Translate, to no success (the closest-sounding words I've found are inazuma and inabikari, which I can tell aren't quite it).

    If it helps, the places I've heard it:
    -Kingdom Hearts: Sora and Larxene both use it when casting Thunder.
    -High School DXD: Akeno uses it under the same circumstances during the battle with Rizer.
    -Sword Art Online: Thor uses it when introducing himself as the God of Thunder.

    It's such a little thing, but it's been bugging me for so long. If anyone knows enough Japanese to figure out what I'm talking about, I'd be very appreciative.

    It also frequently gets used as Kaminari, too.
