Vector Manipulation

Power/Ability to:

Redirect matter and energy

Power to redirect matter and energy either through direct or indirect contact. Sub-power of Physics Manipulation, variation of Velocity Manipulation.

Also Called

  • Direction Manipulation
  • Redirection/Reflection
  • Refraction Manipulation
  • Regokinesis


The user can change the magnitude and direction (vector) of an object to maneuver it in the desired way, regardless of pre-existing vectors. This also applies to static or non-moving objects, technicaly 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.




  • May require physical contact.
  • May be limited to affecting only matter.
  • If the user's version of this power is calculation-based, Enhanced Intelligence may be required.
  • Vulnerable to powers that don't have vectors.
  • Telekinetics/Gravity/Magnetism users of a higher level than the user may be able to overcome the "Ultimate Defense" allowing them to attack the user.
  • 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".
  • 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.
  • If User doesn't have Enhanced Endurance, they may be defeated by simply tiring them out. 
  • If user has no Enhanced Lung Capacity or Oxygen Independence, then they can be defeated by using knock-out gas or Deoxygenation.
