Vector Manipulation
Ultiaccel
Accelerator (A Certain Magical Index) has a "Redirection" vector field that automatically reverses the vectors of anything it touches, even teleportation vectors.

Power/Ability to:

manipulate the vectors of matter and energy.

Power to manipulate the vectors of matter and energy. Sub-power of Physics Manipulation, variation of Velocity Manipulation.

Also Called

  • Direction Manipulation
  • Redirection Manipulation
  • Refraction Manipulation
  • Regokinesis

Capabilities

The user can change the magnitude and direction (vector) of an object to maneuver it in the desired way, regardless of preexisting vectors. This also applies to static or non-moving objects, technically speaking, the object still has momentum as it is moving through space. Since nearly everything in existence has vectors, manipulation of them can essentially grant the user an "Absolute Defense" that prevents the user from harm, among many other possibilities.

Applications

Limitations

  • May require physical contact.
  • May be limited to affecting only physical matter or energy.
  • If the user's version of this power is calculation-based, Enhanced Intelligence may be required.
  • If the user does not possess Enhanced Endurance, they may be defeated from exhaustion and attrition of constant calculations to use their power.
  • Users may be limited to controlling certain amount of vectors at a time (e.g can only manipulating gravity vector), and therefore being distracted with one task may leave them open for an attack.
  • Vulnerable to powers that do not have vectors.
  • If the user's ability is automatic and set on deflecting all strikes at all times, the opponent can take advantage by attacking, and then quickly pulling away just before contact. This will have the "reverse vector" to reverse the pulling away, allowing the opponent to punch the user, which in fact can increase the power of the punch, thus bypassing the "absolute defense".
  • If user does not possess Enhanced Lung Capacity or Oxygen Independence, they will become vulnerable to Deoxygenation.
