Superpower Wiki
"In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil's might,
Beware my power — Green Lantern's light!"
― Green Lantern Corps Oath
"A person's power is determined by both physical strength of body and mental force of will. And I will not lose to anyone with an IRON WILL!!"
― Panther Lily (Fairy Tail)
"Even those countries on the verge of destruction, no longer having the strength to survive. All I did was question their will to live."
― Emporio Ivankov (One Piece)
"This? This is just spirit. Anything is possible if you have the spirit for it."
― Jack Rakan (Negima!)
"I don't care who I have to fight! If he rips my arms out, I'll kick him to death! If he rips my legs out, I'll bite him to death! If he rips my head off, I'll stare him to death! And if he gouges my eyes out, I'll curse him from the grave! Even if I'm torn to shreds, I'm taking Sasuke back from Orochimaru!"
― Naruto Uzumaki (Naruto)
"We don't have a word for hero. Being prepared to die for your family and friends, or what you hold dear, is a basic requirement for a Mando, so it's not worth a separate word. It's only cowards we had to find a special name for."
― Baltan Carid describing Mandalorian culture and language (Star Wars)
"Tohru Honda never gives up!"
― Tohru Honda (Fruits Basket)
"How difficult is the perseverance of one person? All of the Gu Immortals here could answer that question. Because among them, some persevered because of responsibility, some persevered because of hatred, some persevered because of excitement, and some persevered because of love… And Fang Yuan's answer? He was still expressionless, he continued to move forward relentlessly. I had once screamed, gradually, I lost my voice. I had once cried, gradually, I lost my tears. I had once grieved, gradually, I became able to withstand everything. I had once rejoiced, gradually, I became unmoved by the world. And now! All I have left is an expressionless face, my gaze is as tough as a monolith, only perseverance remains in my heart. This is my own, an insignificant character, Fang Yuan's — Perseverance!"
― Fang Yuan (Reverend Insanity)

The user has unnaturally strong willpower, enabling them to be immune to all forms of temptation including Subordination Manipulation, Telepathy, Mind Control, and Subliminal Seduction. Through their will, the user can face great physical pain and psychological trauma and will refuse to surrender no matter how much the odds are stacked against them, possibly up to the point of cheating death, fate and pushing themselves past their own limitations. Factors like anguish, suffering, and difficulty mean nothing to them. The user is capable of suffering any disaster without blinking, ignoring any amount of pain, mentally staying on the sidelines of even the most dire events, and even the most fearsome odds will not break the user. Any abilities that affect or control the mind are useless against them, and serve as nothing more than a minor irritant to them. It will never break, it will never tilt, and even when a thousand apocalypses come, it will stand as tall and resolute as ever. Being split in half, locked in a time cycle of endless agony for thousands of years, or facing the most desperate odds are nothing to the user.








  • One could get carried away if not careful which can cause single-minded to unhealthy obsessions.
  • One's will may be broken by high-skill users of Will Breaking.
