"You have SO many layers of defense in this game to try and keep you going. First, you have SHIELDS. This game takes place in 20,000 A.D. Who would've thought we might invent a shielding system for our ships by then?"
― Ross Scott/Accursed Farms on one of the player's ships. (Ross's Game Dungeon: Tyrian)

Capabilities

The user can create a field formed from energy, elements, the environment, or by manipulating smaller items to form a greater whole. Typically centered on or around the user, these fields often take on a spherical or flat shape and manifest in the form of a barrier or surface such as a shield, wall, dome, bubble or even an aura. They can either possess a solid, fluid or elastic structure and surface. Some of these barriers even possess texture similar to that of glass or crystal, creating the appearance of a nearly unbreakable window-like barrier or a transparent shimmer, while others manifest of an amorphous, sometimes invisible or even imperceptible force made to resemble matter.

Force-Fields are capable of blocking or impeding approaching objects and nullifying attacks, including physical and energy based attacks or even repelling or reflecting them, as well being used as a means of containment to imprison others. Some users are also able to throw shields away from themselves or to catch things with them, while other's may possess sufficient enough control over their force-fields to mold them into a variety of shapes, objects, structures and other more advanced forms. It is even possible to use these barriers as armor by creating thinner force-fields around one's own body or that of others, preventing objects or forces from damaging or even touching them if desired. Other users are able to shrink their force field and use it as a projectile, in addition to other offensive measures rather than only defensive, such as creating a force-field inside an object or person and expanding the force-field so that the object or person explodes. At its most versatile, a user may be able to move, manipulate and otherwise interact with matter or energy using their fields, depending on their level of control over the ability and the exact properties of their fields.

Despite their notable strength and durability, force-fields aren't always impenetrable and can be removed by energy drain or extreme force.

Universal Differences

Some universes consider Energy Constructs to be the building block of force-fields.

Limitations

  • Those with Absolute Strength are infinitely strong, meaning they are capable of obliterating force-fields.
  • Weak against users with Shield Break, Force-Field Penetration, and Defense Break.
  • Most Force-Fields are energy, so they can disappear by Energy Absorption/Energy Draining powers.
  • Users of Absolute Attack can be incredibly dangerous against the users of this ability because of the attacks being infinitely powerful to the point of being unblockable by virtually any means.
  • May be limited to the size/shape/duration of their barriers.
  • May not be able to maintain barriers under stress.
  • Attacks on the barriers may cause equivalent damage to the user's mind or body.
  • May require concentration.
  • Some targets may not be held in or contained by barriers.
  • Some targets may be immune to barrier restrictions.
  • Airtight barriers may cause asphyxiation from prolonged use.
  • May only be able to block certain types of attacks.
