The user can shape/control the abstract essence of darkness as different elemental states along with their respective properties, allowing manipulation of unique elemental forms such as black water, black lightning, black fire, etc. More advanced users could control both darkness and the element(s) separately, combine darkness-infused elements to create stronger forms, or be able to invoke supernatural esoteric effects in darkness infused elements.





  • High energy output from darkness-powered elements could exhaust the user quickly.
  • Is difficult to master by manipulating both darkness and a element at the same time.
  • May not possess any esoteric effects besides black cosmetic appearances.
  • User may be limited to one elemental form, as opposed to control of multiple elements.
