Power to manipulate matter resistance to a change in motion or rest. Sub power of Kinetic Energy Manipulation and Friction Manipulation.

Also Called

  • Inertia Control


The user can manipulate the amount of resistance matter has to a change in motion or rest. Users of this ability could raise an object’s inertia, to make an immobile object immovable, or to make a mobile object unstoppable. The user could also reduce an object’s inertia, so a normally powerful object, such as a train, could have its course of motion interrupted with the same effort as would stop a bicycle.




  • "Inertia Shifting": The ability to only manipulate one's own inertia.


  • Some users can only manipulate their own inertia
  • Some users can only manipulate inertia one way or the other (to resist motion, or resist rest)
  • If the user has no control over the ability, the following can happen:
    • User may cause the opposite inertial change than desired (increasing or decreasing inertia, when one intends to do the opposite)
    • Inertia may change too much (which can damage the object whose inertia is being altered)
  • Users may have more difficulty manipulating the inertia of larger objects
