Filth Manipulation is the ability to manipulate anything rotten, ranging from generation and manipulation of pus/ichor, mucus, slime (mucous secretions of animals), earwax, sweat and saliva, to full-out control over dead and decomposed matter; the user can also control moldy and mildewed matter, spoiled, rancid food, fetid water, polluted air (altering its movement and intensity), urine, vomit and feces.

In addition, this ability can be used to induce rot, speed it up, negate it or sometimes reverse it. At the higher levels, the user can even induce such foul conditions, making water bacterial and unsafe, making air (including breath) stifling and smelly, inducing rot and putrefaction in organic matter or even inducing bacterial infection on open wounds.




  • Can't make the rot, sewage or disgusting/unsanitary/unclean matter look or smell any better.
  • Can't control dust or normal mud (only nasty, swampy, fetid mud).
