Also Called

  • Hallucinogen
  • Hallucikinesis
  • Illusion Casting
  • Illusions
  • Mirage Generation
  • Vision Manipulation
  • Visual Projection


User can create and manipulate illusions , causing people to see, hear, touch, smell and/or taste things which do not actually exist or cause them to perceive things differently from what they truly are. Some users can create complex and detailed worlds, others may be able to only alter the way they or the target are perceived.




  • Hallucination Solidification the ability to solidify any/all illusions or hallucinations.
  • Illusion Eye: To project illusions via eyes.
  • Mental Hallucination, also called Delusion Inducing or the Psychedelic Effect is a faculty of Illusion in which one can induce psychedelic hallucinations in subjects at will. This ability psychically causes the subject's imagination to overact, resulting in paranoia and delirium. This ability may even cause the foe to feel as though only experiencing that which is pleasurable to him instead of what’s actually happening (called the Rose-Colored Glasses Effect) or the like. This ability has no need for the user's imagination; the subject's mind does all of the work (and has a compelling sense of the hallucination’s reality).
  • Mirage Inducing is a version of Illusion (a mix of Summoning or limited Reality Warping and Illusion) in which the user can generate illusions which last, and are entirely real, as long as the targets do not know that they are illusions. One with this ability could cause any type of illusion they desire, but the second that someone calls out “It’s not real!”, shakes subjects out of their deluded state or the subjects see the illusionist working his power, then the illusions will wear off, entirely (or until the user can go unnoticed to use his ability again).
  • Psychosomatic Illusion is the ability to create illusions that are so realistic and powerful they can cause physical effects on the target.
  • Self Perception  The user can alter their own perception of reality
  • Quixotic Force or Delusional Illusion is the ability to subliminally generate illusions, without even knowing that one has generated the illusions (or for that matter, that they are even illusions). This ability would be most advantageous in appearing realistically afraid of illusory creatures, or to keep people from discovering that the user is behind the illusions (because he isn’t even visibly trying to cause them; they simply occur as a defense-mechanism, or as the result of an overactive imagination… or even a diseased mind). This ability is often accompanied by the Insanity Inducement.



  • Some users are limited to creating illusions that affect only certain senses, sight being the most common as a result people with Enhanced Senses might be able to see through it.
  • Some users might have to limit the amount of mental powers to control the illusion.
  • Some targets might be immune, mainly those who either have this ability as well or other mental ability.
  • User may be unable to create accurate illusions, such as making things that don't exist or situations that would never happen in a million years. One common mistake is misplacing a feature on a person, or forgetting to add shadows to their forms.
  • Illusion Awareness
  • Psychic Shield
  • People with Danger Sense may be able to distinguish a fake illusion by telling which one is really a threat.
