"I taught you before. In order to control people, you have to exploit the darkness in their hearts. If there is no darkness, then you just have to create it. You never thought I would also use the same trick on you."
― Madara Uchiha to Obito Uchiha (Naruto)
" I always like to have reminders around that there is no good he can do... that I cannot corrupt."
― Mister Negative (Marvel Comics)

Also Called

  • Corruption
  • Corruption/Darkside Amplification
  • Corrupting/Darkside Influence
  • Darkside Inducement
  • Evil Inducement


User can induce corruption in others.

The ability can be used to corrupt a person into doing anything. It doesn't control the victim, but it prevents them from realizing that they otherwise wouldn't do what the user suggests, and therefore they become much more malleable. A small amount of proximity and contact is needed to corrupt someone, and this proximity or contact is needed every now and again to prolong the effect.

It is easier to corrupt someone to do something minor, e.g. more corruption would be needed to get a victim to murder someone than to get them to steal. It is not impossible for the corruption to be broken, but it is severely difficult and would usually need outside influence. An example of an ability which could be used to break the effects of corruption is Belief Inducement. If the corruption is not renewed occasionally, it will eventually wear away on its own accord.


  • Corrupt even the most good-hearted of people.
  • Make a person do evil things that they wouldn't otherwise do on their own.
  • Emotion Augmentation to make someone feel stronger emotions of hate and anger.
  • High-level users may be able to corrupt and corrode the very environment.
  • Bring out the worst of their personalities.
