Also Called

  • Chaos-Causalian Manipulation
  • Chaos Theory
  • Nonlinear System Manipulation


User can control the Butterfly effect, i.e. all the different causes and their reaction that can have a huge net effect on the whole system. All the causes may be small and completely unrelated to each other in both space and time, yet they can cause many big things in the flow of time which no one can predict. Notable example: a butterfly flapping its wings can cause a hurricane several weeks after.




  • Cause and/or outcome may be unpredictable.
  • Even the users are unable to control the entirety of the system.
  • When it begins, there is no way to stop it.
