"You will learn someday that being half human, makes you stronger than a god."
― Zeus (Wrath of the Titans)

The power to have the traits and abilities of demigods, either through Power Inheritance as one of one's parents is a god, or by unlocking a dormant power in a species. Variation of Hybrid Physiology. Lesser variation of Transcendent Physiology.

  • Demigod Mimicry
  • Half-God/Deity Mimicry/Physiology
  • Nigh/Semi Transcendent Physiology/Mimicry


The user can gain the powers and traits of Demigods, mythological beings with partial, or lesser divine status. There are three forms of this power, with the user being able to assume only one:

  • Type I: Minor deities that are the weakest in the hierarchy of divine beings, also called "Physical Gods" due to the fact that they are usually limited to physical form. (This type of demigods are similar to powerful Meta-Humans.)
  • Type II: Mortal-God hybrids: people who gained this power through the union of a divine being and a mortal; their power will depend on their divine parent and what area they control.
  • Type III: Mortals who somehow became beings with power that approaches that of the gods even though they are not gods themselves, or that gained type I or II.



  • Type I: Powers of the minor deity depend upon both the pantheon to which they belongs and the deity they serve (if any): if they serve others, their power tends to be a lesser variant of that of their master, or a very specific one. If they do not serve others their powers tend to be in a sphere that is unimportant for the pantheon as a whole.
  • Type II: Users with divine parentage may have similar powers as their parents (see Transcendent Physiology for examples), but remember that divine inheritance is a fickle thing: Zeus was father to both Dionysus (who gained powers concerning wine, plant life, madness and ecstasy), and Herakles (who was simply extremely strong).
  • Type III: Those who become demigods by their own effort may gain just about any abilities, given that they usually were powerful individuals even before their ascension; some possibilities including:
    • Ethereal Body: Gain a body that is completely composed of pure Aether.
      • Energy Perception: Possess a perception of the energies that flow through Creation.
      • Extrasensory Perception: Will develop an incredible sixth sense.
      • Flight: Will gain the ability to defy gravity and fly at supersonic speeds.
      • Higher Consciousness: Achieve a consciousness beyond the level of mortal man.
      • Immortality: Become immune to aging, and live indefinitely without food, drink, sleep, or air.
      • Shapeshifting: Gain complete control over your own body in vast/numerous ways.
      • Supernatural Condition: Have the highest physical/mental condition that only a half-god can possess.
    • Ethereal Manipulation: Can control the main element of all existence.
      • Divine Magic: Use the art of magic to invoke the power of "divine beings".
        • Conjuration: Shapes the users thoughts to create nearly any desired thing. This can be accomplished in two ways. One way is by merely thinking of the desired object with the universe making it automatically. The second way is by thinking of the desired object and being given the "blueprints" for it through psychic means.
        • Dimensional Manipulation: Control dimensional energies with high experience.
        • Elemental Manipulation: Reshape molecules to conjure different elements and use it for almost any purpose.
        • Energy Manipulation: Conjure forms of energy and use them for various effects.
        • Healing: Restore injured individuals physically, mentally and spiritually.
        • Space-Time Manipulation: Can connect to the Chronal and Spatial forces and travel anywhere at anytime in history.
        • Superpower Manipulation: Summon the source energies that allow all superpowers.
        • Telekinesis: Move objects at a sub-atomic level with the mind alone.



  • May or may not be truly immortal.
  • May only posses only a partial amount of power from actual deities.
