Also Called

  • Anesthesia
  • High Pain Tolerance
  • Enhanced Pain Threshold


Users can block pain at will, are incapable of feeling pain or are highly resistant to the physical pain of any kind, allowing them to think clearly and continue to move without even flinching despite a grievous injury. Users can think clearly, continue to move, ignore torture and generally function in situations where the pain would disable a normal person. The user does not react at all when damaged, they can walk onward as they are being damaged or continue fighting without stopping no matter how hard they are hit.

Certain users may also be able to neutralize others' pain.






  • May not be able to turn their ability "off".
  • May not be immune to Pain Inducement.
  • Not feeling pain may leave the user ignorant of crippling injuries, which may disable them without them even knowing why.
  • User may only be able to tolerate and ignore the pain, and not actually cancel it out.
  • A user's body may increase and destabilize their emotional output.
  • May not be immune to some types of pain or amounts of it.
  • Unable to feel pain may also sport as a weakness as it may make the user overconfident.
  • May be limited to oneself or others, not both.
