"What powers, you ask? I dunno, how 'bout the power of flight? That do anything for ya? That's levitation, Holmes. How 'bout the power to kill a yak, from 200 yards away... with mind bullets! That's telekinesis, Kyle! How 'bout the power... to move you?"
―Jack Black (of Tenacious D), "Wonderboy"

Also Called

  • Mind-Over-Matter
  • Mind Power
  • Object Manipulation
  • PK
  • Psychokinesis
  • TK

Capabilities

User can influence/manipulate/move objects/matter with their mind. Telekinesis is one of the basis of many superpowers that are based on "controlling/manipulating", and may evolve to the point that a Telekinetic can control anything at a subatomic level. 

Applications

"Psychokinesis" is an umbrella term for any ability that involves using the mind to influence/manipulate/move matter/objects.

Basic level

  • Binding: To keep object/being from moving.
  • Levitation: To lift an object, e.g. raising a pitcher several inches into the air.
  • Psionic Strength: To augment the user's physical strength, e.g.punching through a steel wall.
  • Telekinetic Bullet Projection: To project telekinetic energy or objects as bullets.
  • Telekinetic Choking: To strangle others.
  • Telekinetic Maneuver: to alter an object's directional course, e.g. changing what number a dice lands on or deflect an opponent attack.
  • Telekinetic Grip: To grasp an object firmly in place, e.g. keeping the tides from washing a friend away.
  • Telekinetic Pull/Push: To pull objects towards the user or to push objects away from the user, e.g. yanking a book off a shelf or sliding a cup across a table.

Advanced level

Master level

Ultimate level

Techniques

Variations

  • Ballistic Telekinesis: where the user causes any nearby objects to be moved around the user at high speeds, explode or to be propelled away from the user at high speeds without conscious effort from the user of the power.
  • Elemental Matter Manipulation: using certain elements that have the potential to manipulate objects' movements (such as electromagnetism, gravity, and air).
  • Spatial Telekinesis: manipulate matter and energy by manipulating the space it is occupying.
  • Tactile Telekinesis: where the user has to be in physical contact with an object to be able to move it telekinetically. Other uses include focusing it inward increasing ones physical traits, while simulating Invulnerability via skin-layer Barrier by surrounding the body in a field of psychokinetic force.
  • Telekinetic Force Manipulation: specialized variation concentrate on simple but (extremely) strong TK Force itself.
  • Vector Manipulation: user creates telekinetic energy appendages to move the object, giving it vector, making it easier to move and more effective than normal telekinesis.

Associations

Limitations

  • Telekinesis Immunity
  • May only be capable of moving objects they could physically move.
  • May not be able to manipulate magic-based matters/energies.
  • Psychic strength may be proportional to user's capacity, meaning an opponent with physical strength stronger than the user's mental strength may break free, or even be immune to the ability altogether.
  • May be able to move only the objects that they can see.
  • May be unable to move certain objects, or move only certain objects.
  • Psychic Energy Absorption can negate this power.
  • Could be ineffective against those who control themselves at fundamental levels.
