― Iroh (Avatar: The Last Airbender)

  • Air Bending/Control
  • Ambient Gas Control/Manipulation
  • Atmosphere Control/Manipulation
  • Atmospheric Gas Control/Manipulation
  • Wind Control/Manipulation

Fiction-Specific Terms[]

  • Airbending (Avatar Series)
  • Air Summoning (Shadow and Bone/Grishaverse)

Capabilities[]

Users 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 possibly 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 generational 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. Since air is the originator for most natural disasters and all forms of weather, the user has control over nature’s most dangerous element allowing them to perform a wide variety of feats.

Applications[]

Techniques[]

Variations[]

Associations[]

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

Limitations[]

  • 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.
  • Air user controls may have impurities (dust, pollen, spores, ash, fluorine, mercury, sulfur; also, meteoroids, ice granules, dead insects, small plant parts, dead human skin, toxic vapors, fumes ('viciated' air) and gasses (all of three ambiently), oil and tint residues and vapor of liquid water (umidity, which creates fungus and mold in the air)), unless the user can purify it (Air or Wind).
  • May be weak against Fire Manipulation, as fire is fueled by the oxygen in the air, thus making the flames stronger. Although if the user can learn to absorb all of said oxygen, they can put out the flames making this a partial limitation.
  • Higher-level Electricity Manipulation users can use electrons to detonate the various compound molecules within the air, which may overwhelm the user.
  • Beings with Thermal Manipulation can either increase or decrease the temperature of the air.
  • Air can be frozen.
