- "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"
The power to manipulate objects/matter with the mind.
- Mind Power
- Object Manipulation
- Telekinetic Power
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.
"Psychokinesis" is an umbrella term for any ability that involves using the mind to influence/manipulate/move matter/objects.

- Neural Impulse Manipulation: To redirect the electrical signals between the brain and nerves, achieving control over thoughts, feelings, and movement of a body.
- Organic Manipulation: To manipulate organic matter.
- Psionic Explosion: To create and discharge a destructive psychic energy across a wide range.
- Remote Telekinesis: To manipulate matter that is not within the user's location, e.g. controlling a rock 2000 miles away.
- Vibration Emission: To emit a powerful vibration strong enough to make objects shatter, i.e. sonic boom.

- 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.
- 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.
- Ability may be weakened or nullified by stress, fear or distractions.
- May only be able to manipulate targets of certain number, size or weight at once.
- Using this ability may be physically fatiguing.
- User may not have control over the speed of which the target moves.
- May be able to move only the objects that they can perceive.
- May be unable or only able to move only certain objects.
