The ability to switch or shift from one power to another. Variation of Shapeshifting. Not to be confused with Self-Adaptive Power.

Also Called

  • Power Shapeshifting 


The user can switch from one ability to another, usually seen in people with Power Replication who shift from one power to another. In some cases the users have inherent abilities which can be drastically different from one another and can easily shift from one to the next.


  • Users may gain more control over abilities that need higher concentration, being able to switch to a safer ability if hard to turn off.
  • Users may develop Power Mixture or Power Replication (if user is born with abilities).



  • May need to focus to change powers.
    • May take time to change.
  • Once a power is swapped, the user may not be able to use their other powers until they switch back.
