The power to use the abilities of the Mothman. Variation of Cryptid Physiology.

Also Called

  • Mothman Mimicry


User with this ability either is or can transform into Mothman, a cryptic creature that was said to have terrorized West Virginia during the 1960's.

Mothman is described as a bipedal winged humanoid, but despite his name, is in no way moth-like. He is often reported to be about 7 feet tall, with a wingspan of about 10 to 15 feet or more, plus the ability to fly over 100 mph. The coloration varies from black, gray, to brown, usually in darker shades. His eyes glow, or are at least reflective. Sometimes he is described as not having a head with the two huge red eyes set in the chest. The details of his face and feet have never been adequately described.

He can fold his wings and walk with a weird shuffle that many witnesses compare to a penguin. When he flies, he unfolds his wings and shoots straight up with great speed, then levels out to go wherever he wants to go. He is rarely observed flapping his wings except for on take off. Witnesses often described his flight pattern as "Straight up, like a helicopter".

Anyone who gets a close look at the Mothman seems to suffer from extreme fear and psychological distress, sometimes lasting for months or years afterwards. In particular, people say that a sense of pure evil overcomes them when they see Mothman's eyes.
