The ability to control the emotions of others.

Also Known As

  • Empathic Manipulation
  • Pathokinesis
  • Emotional Manipulation
  • Induced Empathy


Users can cause targets to feel uptight, scared, happy or relaxed. This versatile power may be used to make friends as a manner of Social Cloaking or to enliven slacking allies. Potent emotions like love and loathing are more difficult to cause but can be extremely useful. May be able to cause targets to laugh or cry uncontrollably, or may alter ones ability to feel any emotion.

Syn Anders (Heroes) can control people's emotion when she touched them.


  • Users may only be able to effect one target at a time.
  • Users may need to have contact with target to manipulate them
  • Users may have a limit on how much emotion one target may carry
  • Users may need to feel an emotion to give it.
  • Some applications may cause emotional backlash
  • Users may require absorbing the emotion they replace.
  • Users may or may not be limited to specific emotions


Powers like Mental Manipulation, and Psychic Persuasion may replicate this effect, but on a more limited mental level. Emotion Manipulation may be a side effect of some abilities like Pheromone Manipulation. Empathy may cause this power to work in reverse, or perhaps even backfire.
