"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
The power to collapse objects into dust. Not to be confused with Death Inducement.

Also Called

  • Deconstruction
  • Dissociation
  • Matter Disintegration


Users 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.





  • Reforming
  • May have limited range, including touch only.
  • May be triggered involuntarily.
  • Full deconstruction may take a long time.
  • May only work to destroy, making reassembly difficult or impossible.
  • Requires concentration or focus to properly aim.
  • Users may not be immune.
  • Ambient Resource Construction can reverse the effects on inorganic objects.
  • May only be able to disintegrate organic or inorganic materials.
