User can create, shape, enter and manipulate the dreams of oneself and others, including modifying, suppressing, fabricating, influencing, manifesting, sensing, and observing dreams as well as nightmares, daydreams, etc., possibly including past ones. They can produce and modify dreams, bestow nightmares or lucid dreaming, entrap people in REM, and promote spiritual/emotional healing within dreams.

In some cases, user's power extends to the real world, such as wounds inflicted on a sleeping victim, healed damage (mental or physical) affecting the physical form, and other wise blurring the line between waking and dream. They may be able to pull someone from the waking world into the dream world or brings people/things from the dream world into the waking world.






  • Oneiric Immunity/Dream Negation
  • The user can only affect sleeping subjects.
    • Due to this, users have a limited amount of time while their target is asleep unless the user also has Sleep Inducement.
    • This may be rectified by using "daydreams" or inducing sleep.
  • Users of Psychic Shield (highly resistant) and Psychic Immunity (impervious).
  • May be limited to only putting a person in a Nightmare/Dream Realm, not fully controlling their dream.
  • May not be able to warp reality, therefore not being able to damage the target physically.


Real word version of this power is called Lucid Dreaming.
