      Who wrote that Notes and Trivia section? There's no contention whatsoever. Tomoe is a *person* who mentored Genichiro, the Okami Warrior Women are a *Group* who previously invaded Ashina in the past. It is very clear that Tomoe was simply an exceptional swordswoman, and that she managed to harness Lightning. The Okami can harness Lightning because Lightning itself is a force of the Gods, they worship the Divine Dragon, and the Fountainhead Palace is partway between the Mortal Realm and the Divine Realm. For the Okami it's natural because of where they are and what they're around. For Tomoe it's exceptional because Lightning is a Divine force.

        using shinobi anti air deathblow technique is also very effective whenever she is preparing her lightning strike, since she is up in the air for a few seconds and you can kill her in one strike

          i should have known better by this point, but i died twice keeping my distance and trying to redirect the lightning attacks. i really didn't expect her to have absolutely no counter to the "wail on you with my *****in sword" technique
