"This isn't the end."
"You say that with remarkable assuredness."
"With experience. When the Borg destroyed my world, my people were scattered throughout the universe. We survived - as will humanity survive. As long as there's a handful of you to keep the spirit alive, you will prevail - even if it takes a millennium."
― Guinan and Jean-Luc Picard (Star Trek: TNG)

The power to identify and escape danger without consciously thinking out a plan of action. Not to be confused with Escape Artistry or Tracking Evasion.

Also Called

  • Enhanced Self-Preservation
  • Superhuman Self-Preservation
  • Super Self-Preservation


Users can automatically identify and escape dangerous situations and evade opponents without consciously thinking out a plan of action. An example of this would be if the user is pursued by enemies that are faster than the user, they would automatically run in a pattern that would keep them from being surrounded, cut off, or captured by almost all means and then throw off their pursuit.




  • Can be taunted into disregarding their ability and choosing to fight instead of fleeing.
  • May be unable to escape from certain almighty powers such as Universal Irreversibility, individuals possessing Omnilock (seeing as no power can lock onto them), beings with Omniscience, etc.
  • May be limited on how long or how much they can use the ability for a certain amount of time.
