"You judge yourselves against the pitiful adversaries you've encountered so far: the Romulans, the Klingons. They're nothing compared to what's waiting."
― Q (Star Trek: TNG)

The ability to adapt one's power level to surpass any opposition. Sub-power to Power Level Manipulation. Variation of Superior Adaptation.

Also Called

  • Power Level Adaptation
  • Power Level Infinitum
  • Reactive Power Level


The user can spontaneously and quickly increase their power level to match those of superior opponents and overcome excessive hardships. This adaptation applies to all personal parameters, physical, mental, and even existential.

Raw power, speed, and fighting skills will keep increasing until the opposition finds itself severely outmatched, surviving, and recovering from incredible punishments until they become unnoticeable. When facing some particularly extreme circumstances, the user will eventually reach a breaking point, their power-level exploding as they shed into a new, super-powerful form.

In the end, no matter how huge the gap in power, no matter how impossible the odds, users will always find themselves standing victorious on top of their defeated enemies.





  • Only improves existing capabilities, doesn't grant new ones (except when reaching thresholds).
  • Depending on the adaptation's speed, users may be defeated or killed before their defenses build up.
  • Cannot adapt to Omnipotence.
