Also Called

  • Paper Control
  • Paper Mastery
  • Papercraft
  • Paperfolding
  • Papyrokinesis


The user can create, shape and manipulate paper, a thin sheet material produced by mechanically and chemically processing cellulose fibers fibers in water, that are derived from vegetable sources, such as wood and grass, and/or manipulating paper-like substances, such as papyrus and parchment that are close to standard paper.

Among the more impressive abilities paper could provide, is the ability of flight. With enough of the material, paper can be strengthened to lift the user or even an object due to it's natural lightness. Paper can also grant a form of liquid absorption, as it is still an altered form of a plant thus can hold, store and clean away fluids albeit to a degree. Though paper is normally bland in colors, it's beauty comes in more shapely differences (for example Origami) so what it lacks in flash and pizazz, it makes up in physical phenomena.






  • May be unable to create paper, being limited to manipulating only from already existing sources.
  • Distance, mass, precision, etc. depend upon of the knowledge, skill, and strength of the user, and their power's natural limits.
  • Unless the user has a skill to prevent this, paper will have all the weaknesses normal paper has, such as fire burning it, water softening it, sharp objects cutting it, etc.
