The power to use the abilities of a cyclops. Variation of Giant Physiology.
- Cyclops Mimicry
- One-eyed Being Physiology
User with this ability either is or can transform into a cyclops (plural: Cyclopes) or one-eyed humanoid. In mythology this trait was generally associated with fearsome creatures, in modern fiction some one-eyed creatures are likewise frightening enemies but others are friendly. It should be noted that Cyclops more accurately translates to "circle-eye" or "wheel-eye", referring to its size, therefore Cyclopean technically means huge, and not one-eyed (not to mention mythical Cyclops themselves were giants).
Cyclops of Greek mythology can be divided into two different groups, depending of their ancestry:
- The Elder Cyclops, Brontes ("thunderer"), Steropes ("lightning") and the "bright" Arges ("vivid-flash") were children of Uranus and Gaea. They were temperamental master-smiths that crafted many of the weapons and tools of the gods, before they and their descendants entered into service of Hephaestus.
- The younger cyclops were most likely descendants of giants or gods, far less civilized and the reason why cyclops are considered primitive and destructive species.
