The power to manipulate tiny, microscopic robotic metal machines. Variation of Robotic Manipulation. Technological counterpart of Organite Manipulation.

  • Nanotech Control/Manipulation
  • Nanomachine Control/Manipulation
  • Nanotechnosis


User can create, shape and manipulate nanites, machines or robots whose components are at or near the scale of a nanometre. More specifically, nanorobotics (as opposed to microrobotics) refers to the nanotechnology engineering discipline of designing and building nanorobots, with devices ranging in size from 0.1–10 micrometres and constructed of nanoscale or molecular components. This allows the use of nanotechnology: manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular, and supramolecular scale.

The tiny robots that the users control can be programmed to build, destroy and cover themselves with metal. They can produce a suit of cyber armor made of sentient nano-bytes that covers their body and is nearly indestructible yet still very agile. It also increases the user's physical attributes many times that of the average human. The nanites in the user's bloodstream can also have the effect of healing the user's injuries at an accelerated rate, allowing them to regenerate before any normally fatal injuries could kill them.

This power is able to upgrade vehicles or take over electrical objects by the use of an nanotechnology. When in use to upgrade vehicles, a cable will come out from the arm; the more cables, the higher/faster the upgrade. User can shoots a cylindrical bullet that releases nanites which override the electrical object programming.






  • May be unable to create nanites, being limited to manipulating only from already existing sources.
  • Distance, mass, precision, etc. depend upon of the knowledge, skill, and strength of the user.
  • The tiny robots can be hacked.
  • May have to keep memories in a computer.
  • Nanobots are affected by electricity and magnetism.
  • Sentient nano-bytes might become to self aware and turn against user.
  • May be vulnerable to corrosion and/or extreme temperatures.
  • Electronic Disruption
