Kazapstrophe is a fourth tier of Lightning spells in the series, introduced in the Joker subseries of the monsters series. Kazapstrophe replaces Kazapple as the ultimate Lightning spell and boasts more utility, requiring a single character to use in most appearances. True to the spell's name, it rains the fury of the gods on to the caster's enemies in the form of colossal thunderbolts several meters wide.
