Also Called

  • Adaptrare-Ergokinesis
  • Energy Adaptation
  • Living Energy


User can create and manipulate energy to such an extent that they can change its frequency at will. They can scan energies either consciously or subconsciously and use it to energize their powers. They can convert nearby abilities with a special "hidden energy" that shifts all other nearby energies into a currently unknown energy. Raw energies, magical energies, and light as well as many more kinds of energies can all be used in order to generate this living light.





  • Adaptive abilities may be a defensive response and may not ever be used for offensive purposes.
  • Many users manipulate energy into their preferred or primary form of energy. This may not always be through conscious choice and thus can be out of the user's control.
  • User may change the energy that makes up users that have an Energy Physiology.
  • Energy Immunity is immune to any kind of energy that the user can wield, and thus is the bane of any user of this ability.
  • Energy Negation can negate the energy made/controlled by the user. This is true for advanced users of Energy Erasure and Anti-Energy Manipulation.
  • Manipulation of large amounts of energy can cause a user to become very exhausted. Along with this, high amounts of concentration be necessary in order to convert certain types of energy (e.g. Gamma rays to Infrared).
  • May be limited to what kind of energy they can change (E.g. A user may only be able to change different types of energy into Electricity).
  • May become addicted to the exhilaration of changing energies.
  • May not be able to control the energy that they change, or manipulate energy at all.
  • May not be immune to their own powers, or may harbor weaknesses to select forms of energy.
  • May only be able to change a certain type of energy.
