User can create, shape and manipulate dark energy, usually drawn from inter-dimensional or other similar sources. It can be channeled to a variety of effects as an absence of light, a solid, gaseous and/or liquid substance that can be shaped/manifested in various ways.

Unlike Darkness Manipulation, which draws from the similar source, dark energy focuses on direct, destructive and violently outward directed aspects of the spectrum.

Universal Difference

In physics, dark energy is a hypothetical energy that permeates space, similar to dark matter, and makes up for about 68.3% of the universe.






  • Can be countered by Light Energy Manipulation and Dark Matter Manipulation.
  • Dark Energy is extremely dangerous, destructive, unpredictable, and sometimes unstable. The energy can possess damaging effects on the user's body and their sanity if they have poor control over it.
  • Accidental release of negative energy may occur.
  • Focused purely on outwards and destructive/direct effects.
