The ability to remove brains. Technique of Brain Manipulation. Not to be confused with Brain Drain or Brain Absorption.


User can remove the brains (including only individual sections of the brain (the frontal lobe, motor cortex, occipital lobe, etc.) of oneself or others, usually resulting in the target's death. This may be done either by physical action (removing the brain out manually via brute force), or by various supernatural means.

By normal biological means, removing one's brain out means instant death. However, the brain may be continued to be connected to the body via a magical link, and anything that happens to it afterwards will be afflicted to the owner's body.
