Capabilities

The users can generate and manipulate the cursed flames of Hell, which can completely destroy anything. The color of the flames varies, but may be black, blue, white, or the normal shades of fire, although probably in some way noticeably unusual. Sometimes, the flames are not generated, but instead summoned from the depths of Hell itself.

Hell-fire can cause excruciating pain upon contact or instead cause instant death, possibly even for relatively beneficial purposes, such as summoning spirits of the deceased temporarily back to the world of living from Hell. Some users can even use Reanimation or Resurrection via Summoning the damned souls of Hell and/or Demons.

A benefit of using hellfire is that, due to its mystical nature and the fact that it tends to attack a person's spiritual essence in addition to their bodies, is that hellfire can be effective against durable targets or people with accelerated healing. As hellfire can attack the spirit or soul, it can inflict injuries that either don't heal or heal very slowly meaning that a critical attack could kill people that heal fast enough to shrug off normally instantly fatal injuries. It can also bypass or damage durable/invulnerable targets by either targeting the spirit/soul or because its magical nature trumps simple physical durability.

Limitations

  • The flames created can be difficult to control, and may cause lethal backfire if not handled properly.
  • Some people may not be compatible with the power to control Hellfire, which may cause the flames to burn them the moment they try to control it.
  • Since the flames may be inextinguishable, they can be very troublesome to control.
  • User must be careful when using the flames around comrades, to prevent causing unintended casualties.
  • User may not be able to manipulate normal fire, and cannot use the flames for normal day purposes (i.e. cooking, campfire).
  • Hell-fire may be extinguished or repelled by holy items and substances (i.e. Holy water, crosses).
  • Low level users may not have actual manipulation of the flames, and instead can only produce it and let it run wild afterwards.
  • Countered by Holy Fire Manipulation and Holy Water Manipulation.
  • Divine Force Manipulation can counter this ability.
