The Weird Powers Thread

15 posts in this topic

This is meant to be like the "If You Were A Epic" thread. In this thread you can post any ideas for weird epic powers.

Here are mine:

Whale summoning.

Probability switching (1/100,000,000 chance that a bullet will turn into a puppy, after power is used: 999,999,999/100,000,000 chance that bullet will turn into a puppy.)

Broccoli manipulation.

Fred manipulation (you can control people named Fred.)

Weight gaze (the longer you stare at something the heavier it gets.)

Post your ideas!

I don't think this Fred would like that.

I really want to participate here but I have a few years headstart on this topic and if I did I think I'd need a few dozen pages for all of my posts. :P
I shall stick to getting some amusement from other peoples for now then.

The ability to manipulate ink on any surface. Great for vandalism and death threats, but horrible for combat.

Epic Name: Foxtrot

 

Power: Full nervous control over people's legs. Not their entire bodies; just their legs. Uses this power to make people tap dance, mostly, but occasionally works as an enforcer for more powerful Epics by making them kneel. Surprisingly useful in combat; it's hard to aim a rifle or a blast of pyrokinesis when your legs want to swivel your body around in the other direction.

 

Appearance: A very short, frail-looking person with glasses and an inhaler. The last person you'd expect to become a sadistic serial tap-dance enforcer. (Granted there probably aren't a lot of people you would expect to become sadistic serial tap-dance enforcers, but I'm sure they're out there.)

 

Weakness: Unbeknownst to most people, Foxtrot was paralyzed from the waist down before Calamity. He walks now only by the use of his powers; he's actually gotten so good at it by this point he doesn't even have to think about it. Handicap signs remind him, however, and cancel out his abilities.

 

 

 

I can't resist coming up with characters around the powers. :ph34r:

KNEEL BEFORE FOXTROT!

@Kobold, I like this character very much. He can literally make people dance with Death.

It seems that Foxtrot is a choreomancer :D

Awesome! If that power should ever belong to someone, it should belong to the one and only Mr. Staccato! If you need proof, one need only refer to my member title. :lol:

 

Anyway, example weirdo abilities:
The ability to convert latent soundwaves into specific fragrances. (Kinda like Dazzler from X-men but instead of sound to light, it's sound to smell.)
The ability to turn your thoughts into text messages.
The ability to control other people's facial expressions. (World's most useless superpower if you ask me)
The ability to permanently modify the meaning of a word from the collective mind of humanity. (Basically the world is your wiktionary.)

I'm ModderMan.

I'm able to create and install mods of all kinds on anything from cars to videogames. Mostly Skyrim. But other stuff, too.

However, excessive microtransactions or just straight up awful videogames nullify my lowers.

1) the ability to turn all things backwards.

2) the ability to turn into a tree.

3) the ability to become a statue

Symmetry Man:

All things are at least slightly asymmetrical. Symmetry Man hates this. When he feels like it, he can make everything exactly symmetrical. Near things are easiert to change than far, small easier than big. Living things are immune. 

This power is kind of a prime invincibility, since it's difficult to shoot with a perfectly symmetrical gun with two stocks and no opening. Offensively the power is used to make unexpected things like shoes or knives symmetrical to cause pain or, in lucky situations, death. 

Weakness: mirrors. The enforced symmetry of mirrors irritates Symmetry Man that much, that he loses his powers for a short time.

Well, a gun is already symmetrical. A rifle would be almost perfectly symmetrical unless there's carvings or flashlight or laser sights or something.

It's symmetrical regarding one dimension. But as I said, a gun with two stocks or two grips would be even more symmetrical.

Or one that points in both directions! :)
