The user is or can become extremely malleable and elastic, allowing them to stretch, flatten, deform, expand, and contract their whole body, including limbs, torso, neck, etc. They can control how elastic/flexible they or parts of them are, allowing user to change their bodies into various tools or other constructs.

  • May have to use kinetic force, such as punching or kicking, or even getting punched or kicked, in order to stretch.
  • May be more vulnerable against piercing or cutting attacks.
