The ability to project energy bolts that expand at user's will. Sub-power of Energy Attacks. Variation of Expanding Bolts.


The user can launch bolts of energy that expand rapidly on contact with target or when it reaches the chosen place. These bolts are usually compressed force-fields that quickly expand to large sizes: for example a bolt the size of a baseball can expand to become the size of a car.


  • Useful for fighting in confined spaces.
  • Shoot a bolt into a large machine to have its insides destroyed.
  • With training the user may control the shape of the expansion, adding points or blunt ends.
  • The user has an unlimited target range of space to project the energy bolt any time and anywhere.




  • User may be affected by the attack as well.
