― Fighter (8-Bit Theater)

The ability to remove a being's ability to speak or vocally communicate. Sub-power of Silence Manipulation.

Also Called

  • Silencing
  • Vocal Revocation
  • Vocal Dampening


User can remove targets ability to speak or vocally communicate temporarily or permanently, which can severely limit an opponent's ability to relay information. If the target has to speak to use their abilities (speaking to cast a spell, activate technology, etc.), this naturally makes them impossible to use.



  • Opponents with Telepathy are not hindered by the user's ability.
  • If the user is incapacitated, the user's power will wear off.
  • May have a limit on how many people user can affect at once or at the same time.
