"You're damn right I'm not a soldier. I'm a one man army!"
― Tony Stark/Iron Man (Marvel Comics)

The ability to be as deadly as a vastly superior force. Advanced version of Enhanced Combat.

Also Called

  • Army/Legion/Team of One
  • Implacability

Capabilities

The user is able to fight against seemingly, overwhelming odds with ease. They are a capable warrior on the battlefield, decimating the enemy single-handedly and with near supernatural finesse that pars with the skill of more experienced fighters. This ability can manifest into various ways but is usually the result of extreme martial skill. Users of this ability are as deadly at long-range combat as they are in close quarter.

Applications

  • Cause terror in your enemies.
  • High level users may be able to simulate Accelerated Perception.
  • Predict an opponents next move, through a combination of experience and instinct.
  • Quickly adapt to dangerous situations.
  • Become proficient in various forms of combat, or specialize in one.
  • Utilize and become proficient in any form of weaponry.
  • Some users may be able to suppress pain until their mission is completed.
  • Become a force of nature.
  • If users are Immortal (may be part of this power anyway) then they themselves are an army killing machine with no end.

Variations

  • Last Stand Empowerment: The ability to spontaneously manifest the above power in suicidal situations. Almost always results in the users death, though not before amassing a significant body count. Users who do survive its use may develop the permanent version.
  • Inverse Ninja Law: The ability to become more powerful as the odds are stacked against you. However the opposite is also true. This may be exploited by genre-savvy opponents. Not necessarily unique to ninjas, see here for more details.

Associations

Limitations

  • Harsh training may be needed to maintain abilities/skills.
  • Users may develop a psychological need to find worthy opponents.
  • Highly prone to overconfidence.
