Users can live without a head. A sub-power of Anatomical Liberation.

Also Called

  • Cephalic Liberation
  • Cephalophore
  • Headlessness


Users are able to live with body separated from head or are able to remove their head and replace it, either with their own head or with something else.


  • Animation/Psychokinesis to control their body from a distance.
  • Head may be lifted high to see or hear something otherwise out of range


  • Projectile Head: May allow heads to be replicated to replace a head that is going to be destroyed.
  • May allow placing head on another body, including a robotic one, allow control of that body.
  • Users might be able to transplant head onto a new body or animatable object (like a scare crow, robot, remote control object, or anything that is lifeless but has moveable parts, not an inanimate object rock or cupboard).
    • By the same accord this can work in reverse, a body can work without a head and can put a Head like object (more than probably a pumpkin) to act as a head.



  • Reattaching the head may take time or special circumstances.
  • If the head were to become lost, the body may not be able to find it due to reduced motor skills.
  • The user may not survive if the brain/head is damaged/destroyed.
