The power to have an extremely keen sense of taste. Variation of Enhanced Senses.

Also Called


The user has accurate sense of taste, allowing them to sense both harmful and beneficial things, as all basic tastes are classified as either aversive or appetitive, depending upon the effect the things they sense have on our bodies. Sweetness helps to identify energy-rich foods, while bitterness serves as a warning sign of poisons.

The user might even be able to tell certain things about people if they taste something the person they're describing ate/drank previously, such as gender.

  • Something with too much of a certain flavor or taste might be dangerous for them.
  • Users might not be able to shut off this power.
  • Does not work on foods or drugs that do not carry a taste.
