Capabilities

User is able to mimic and replicate the powers of others around oneself.

User can even stack several powers together, which may lead to Power Mixture.

Applications

Variations

  • Adaptive Power Replication: replicate another power and become immune to that power.
  • Animal Imitation: mimic the traits of animals.This ability can be accompanied by touching the animal first or looking at the animal. One with this ability can mimic the Tri-chromatic color vision of a salamander, the agility of a gazelle, the flight of a hawk, the climbing ability of a spider, or the strength of an ant. Some times users may be able to mimic the skills, traits and or powers of higher order animals like humans or sentient demons.

  • Empathic Mimicry: absorb abilities and reproduce them based on the emotions that they are connected with.
  • Fashion-Based Mimicry, also called Wardrobe-Based Mimicry, Clothing-Based Mimicry,Fashion-Based Abilities, Wardrobe-Based Abilities or Clothing-Based Abilities or Clothing Generation: gain superhuman powers based on the clothes one wears.

This ability may be accompanied by a Fashion Sense.

  • Loyalty Based Power Replication: copy powers by anyone being loyal to the user.
  • Power Replication Field: emit a field that allows the user to copy the powers of others within the field.
