Superpower Wiki

The power to manipulate the essential forms on a physical/esoteric level. Opposite to Essence Manipulation. Not to be confused with Mode Manipulation.

Also Called

  • Form Control/Modification
  • Morphology Manipulation
  • Quintessential Form Manipulation


The user can create, shape and manipulate the forms of oneself, others or objects to achieve a new appearance, new powers and new auras. They can even transform into other species, and potentially possess any form that can be equipped for any situation. The user can even achieve a form that is considered authentic.

Form variation like "Phenotypes" (due to underlying heritable genetic variation) is a fundamental prerequisite for evolution by natural selection. It is the living organism as a whole that contributes (or not) to the next generation, so natural selection affects the genetic structure of a population indirectly via the contribution of forms.

The user can change the physiology of a person's particular nature meaning they can change them from a species like Human to becoming another "Type" attribute such as Animal which will give them either Animal Manipulation/Imitations/Morphing/Empathy.

This power is an umbrella power for every type of form power through Mode Switching and Super Form. Users can create or access every form: sealed forms, true forms, released forms, merged forms, etc.

The user can analyze the form of Body, Anatomy, Morphology, Life-Force Manipulation, emotion, mental level, and even Powers and then devise counter-measures such as counter powers, devices, etc...








  • Users of Formlessness and Form Transcendence are immune.
  • Some forms may not be considered suited for survival or be considered 'authentic'.
  • Some users may not be able to manipulate certain types of form depending on their field of expertise.
