The user can put others in a trance, making them highly suggestible and allowing the user to affect or directly influence their minds to their commands.






  • Users of Indomitable Will (highly resistant), and Control Immunity (immune).
  • Depending on the method, Psychic Shield/Immunity may be effective.
  • The mindless (zombies, machines, puppets, etc.) can't be hypnotized.
  • May require concentration.
  • Idiots may not be hypnotizable (one of the laws of hypnosis in the real world and most fantasy worlds).
  • May require time and/or cooperation from the target.
    • Hypnosis—even Supernatural Hypnosis that doesn't require a lengthy induction—is not necessarily Mind Control; users cannot make the target violate their moral code.
  • May require visual contact.
  • A medium might be required to perform the hypnosis.
  • Some users might accidentally hypnotize themselves.
  • Some users may need a phrase or suggestion word to trigger hypnosis
