The ability to manipulate dark matter, a substance scientifically theorized to make up most of the physical universe. Not to be confused with Aether Manipulation.

Capabilities

User can create, shape and manipulate Dark Matter, a hypothetical type of matter distinct from baryonic matter (ordinary matter such as protons and neutrons), neutrinos and dark energy. The name refers to the fact that it does not emit or interact with electromagnetic radiation, such as light, and is thus invisible to the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Although dark matter has not been directly observed, its existence and properties are inferred from its gravitational effects, and it is estimated to make up 84% of the universe's mass and 23% of its mass-energy.

The most widely accepted hypothesis on the form for dark matter is that it is composed of weakly interacting massive particles that interact only through gravity and the weak force. The dark matter hypothesis plays a central role in current modeling of cosmic structure formation, galaxy formation and evolution, and on explanations of the anisotropies observed in the cosmic microwave background (CMB).

Universal Differences

In some universes, Dark Matter is not preexisting in the form of the universe's mass. Instead, they may be matter or energy of varying properties, depending on the manufacturing process, such as being outside the boundaries of the laws of physics, or granting abilities and even bodies.

Other

In anime/manga Dark Matter has broad range of powers, including Form Manipulation/Elemental Manipulation. It isn't associated with space, but more with "Supernatural" form of matter normally associated with Dark Energy Manipulation, various forms of Magic and Destructive Energy Manipulation. It tends to have corruptive effect on user.
