The ability to transfer the genetic code of a target into the user's body. Sub-power of DNA Manipulation and variation of Absorption. Variation of DNA Replication.


The user can absorb all the genetic information of a target, usually by touch, often gaining their abilities, appearance, and power if they have one. They may also gain some of the target's personality. The user may be able to store the separate set of DNA without accessing it so they can remain in their normal form until another form is needed, they also keep their mindset.




  • The user will gain the physical weaknesses of their targets eg. if the user absorbed the DNA of a Fire Mimic then they would have an aversion to water and ice
  • The user may have a limit to how many DNA sets they can absorb, therefore their enemies could overload their storage with useless abilities
