- People with Danger Intuition may be able to distinguish a fake illusion by telling which one is really a threat.
- May be limited to creating illusions that affect only certain senses, sight being the most common as a result people with Enhanced Senses might be able to see through it.
- May have to limit the number of mental powers to control the illusion.
- May be unable to create accurate illusions, such as making things that don't exist or situations that would never happen in a million years. One common mistake is misplacing a feature on a person or forgetting to add shadows to their forms.
- People with Detection or other sensing-based abilities may be able to distinguish the illusions as fakes.
- Unlike Reality Warping this power allows the user to pretend they warp reality, like for example, changing and creating things on a whim, at least illusively. Although, it can be possible that reality warpers can do the same of creating illusions as well.
