The 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


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 seemingly static or non-moving objects, because technically speaking the object still has momentum as it is moving through space. One could also say that even having a magnitude value of "0" still constitutes as a vector. Since nearly everything in existence has vectors, manipulation of them can essentially grant the user an "Absolute Defense" that prevents the user from being harmed, among many other possibilities.




  • May have limited range, including 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 reflecting all strikes at all times, the opponent can take advantage of this automatic redirection by attacking, and then quickly pulling away at the exact moment of contact with the redirection field's area of effect. This will "trick" the redirection field, causing the "reverse vector" to instead reverse the direction of the punch and draw it towards the user, and thus bypassing the "absolute defense".
  • If user does not possess Enhanced Lung Capacity or Oxygen Independence, they will become vulnerable to Deoxygenation.
