"A curtain of death raining from the sky. So many bullets at a time your eyes can't keep up."
― Bullet Hell
"Plus, to add insult to injury, in most Japanese shooters I've seen, they also like to put you through what's called "bullet hell." "Bullet hell" is when they throw so many shots on the screen to try and kill you in one hit; they're basically just trolling you to try to get you to die and stop playing."
― Ross Scott/Accursed Farms on most games made from Japan. (Ross's Game Dungeon: Tyrian)

The user can summon a stream of endless waves (ranging from hundreds to thousands to millions) of objects like blades, bullets, energy blasts, etc., around their target to bombard them from all sides with no hope of escape. Users most likely have a complex strategy and pattern to confuse their opponent and limit their movement.





  • Users of Absolute Defense, Intangibility and Invulnerability cannot be harmed by the projectiles, assuming they can maintain such defense longer than the barrage.
  • Users of Telekinesis and Vector Manipulation can change the direction of thrown objects away from them, assuming they can focus on every projectile.
  • Users of Absolute Speed can dodge all of the projectiles.
  • User may have difficulty, if not impossibility, in controlling the trajectory of attacks.
  • User may be affected if at close range.
  • Though difficult, it is possible to dodge the projectiles.
  • Continuous firing can result in rapid exhaustion of energy or ammunition, unless user has high reserves, if not Infinite Supply.
