Also Called

  • Cerebral Control
  • Cerebrokinesis/Mentokinesis
  • Higher Cognitive Manipulation
  • Mental/Mind/Telepathic Alteration
  • Mind Manipulation


The user can manipulate the mind, the mechanism of proceeding information and set of immaterial facilities that are linked to it. They can create, control, customise, negate and otherwise fashion parts and functions of mind as perception, desires, thoughts, beliefs, memories, attention, personality, behaviour and intelligence in verity of ways. Beneficially, this ability can be used to unlock one's inner potential, bestow talents and skills, improve mental capacity. Destructively, this power may shatter minds, grant diversity of mental disorders and take over others. Either way, users possess outstanding power that make them force to be reckoned with.



  • Mindshifting: Has direct and total control over their mental structure, being able to manipulate at will their own emotions, sensations, perceptions, consciousness, memories, personality and everything connected to their brain and mind granting highly advanced capabilities.
  • Mind Control: Can control the minds of others, including their thoughts, perceptions, memories, emotions and personality. Depending on the user's skill and power, this can range from a trance-like state very similar to hypnosis, to the target being completely subject to the user's control.


  • Enhanced/Supernatural/Absolute Mind: Can reach its zenith mentally and even develop it to higher levels. In this way, the user can achieve mental success that no one has achieved before, and achieve results that are considered impossible by others.




In fiction, mind is often portrayed as a triple structure consistent out of three components:

  • Subconscious is described as set of processes that happen automatically without one's awareness of it: breathing, growing, regeneration, habits, etc.;
  • Conscious is portrayed in fiction as one's sentience and awareness of existence, it is responsible for all activities one does realising it: studying, thinking, exploring, etc.;
  • Superconscious is said to be one's supreme mental essence that consciousness evolves into. It is often associated with spiritual realization, Enlightenment and becoming whole with oneself.

Furthermore, in psychoanalytic theory mind consists out of another three elements:

  • Id: instinctive awareness and competence that is presented in individual since birth;
  • Ego: sense of self that organizes personality;
  • Super-ego: piece of collective mind that connects group and gives it similar properties.

Interaction between mind and consciousness vary in fiction as in some cases, they are considered one whole psyche, while in some others' mind is only a tool (or a framing device) of independently existing consciousness.
