The user can create, shape and manipulate air, the common name given to the layer of atmospheric gases and various compounds (mostly oxygen and nitrogen) surrounding the planet Earth that is retained by Earth's gravity, and wind, movement of air relative to the surface of the planet. It is an important factor in determining and controlling climate and weather, and the generating force of most ocean and freshwater waves. Wind occurs because of horizontal and vertical differences in atmospheric pressure, and include breezes, squalls, gusts, whirlwinds, zephyrs, gales, tempests, and hurricanes.

Since air cannot be seen by conventional methods, neither can the attacks and derivatives formed by/from it, making it an invisible and versatile weapon that is very difficult to block and dodge.





As one of the classical elements, Air is associated with:


  • Aerokinetic Immunity
  • May be unable to create air/wind, being limited to manipulating only from already existing sources.
  • Distance, mass, precision, etc. depend upon the knowledge, skill, and strength of the user, and their power's natural limits.
  • Ineffective in a vacuum: atmosphere must be present.
  • Variations in air-pressure may complicate things for beginners.
  • May be weak against Fire Manipulation, as fire is fueled by the oxygen in the air, thus making the flames stronger.
  • Higher-level Electricity Manipulation users can use electrons to detonate the various compound molecules within the air, which may overwhelm the user.
