Raiden Elemental Burst is called MUSOU SHINSETSU. Raiden pulls out her sword and deals an initial AOE Electro Damage. After that, she keeps using the sword for some time in combat. The damage of the sword attacks will increase based on the number of Chakra Desiderata Resolve Stacks.

All of her attacks during this time will turn into Electro that can’t be overridden by abilities such as Bennet c6 and Chongyun Elemental Skill. She also gains increased resistance to interruption and immunity to Electro Charged reaction damage.
