"This not acupuncture, this de-boning, I taking out your bones."
― Di Lung (Courage the Cowardly Dog)

The power to remove bones from bodies. Sub-power of Bone Manipulation. Opposite to Bone Regeneration.

Also Called

  • De-boning


The user can remove bones from the targets bodies, from singular bones to whole skeleton, by removing them from the body by shifting them from the body, ripping them out or simply disappearing them. Exact effects depend on how much of the skeleton is removed, from where and how: whole skeleton, skull, spine or rib-cage is lethal, limb-bones make that limb useless, etc. Ripping the bones away is obviously extremely painful.




  • Unless the user has ability to return or regrow the bones, the effect is permanent.
  • Users of Boneless Body are immune.
