"A shaft of energy shot out from the eye, bathing him in its glow. The next instant, Carapar shattered into fragments as if he had been made of crystal. Then there was nothing left of him but a pile of glittering dust on the stone floor."
― Narrator, Federation of Fear
"My mouth is a portal into a dark dimension. Even I ignore where it leads. I sent your friend in here... and you are next."

Also Called

  • Deconstruction
  • Dissociation

The user can cause targets (whether organic or inorganic material) to lose cohesion in various means. Some can make matter fall apart, wipe away their target on a molecular/sub-molecular level or even revert matter into pure energy. Regardless of the means, the target is reduced to either molecular/sub-molecular dust or energy but not absolutely annihilated.
