The power to generate illusions. Also known as Mirage Generation, Illusion Casting, or Vision Manipulation.
Illusion Manipulation can trick people into seeing unreal things. The illusions are not tangible, but are very realistic to subjects. Users may alter what targets see by Sense Manipulation, through Mind Control, or by Light Manipulation. Some can create complex and detailed worlds others may only be able to alter the way they or the target are seen. This ability is fairly limited in that it can only affect the eyes and senses like touch and smell are left unaffected.
- May not allow users to evoke desired illusion.
- Illusions may be overturned by a strong mind
- Other senses may be left intact
- Some users might have to limit the amount of mental powers to control the illusion.
- Requires brain power to come up with some form of illusion.
- Some targets might be immune, mainly those who either have this ability as well or other mental ability.
Uses May include:
- Mazes: Users display large walls.
- Mind Over Matter: Targets see themselves drowning and suddenly cannot breathe, for example.
- Sensory Overload: Targets are forced with overlapping visions, causing several negative symptoms.
- Illusion of Death: Target thinks they are being killed over and over again. This usually leads to insanity.
