  • Mental Sedation
  • Sedation
  • Unconsciousness Inducement/Induction


Users can cause organisms to fall asleep, whether instantaneously or more naturally. The user can make people fall asleep by telling them or put them in a sleep-like trance, making them dream of their greatest fantasies or experience their worst nightmares.





  • Cannot affect users of Awakening or higher skilled users of Sleeplessness.
  • Users of Psychic Shield (highly resistant), Psychic Immunity (impervious) and Indomitable Will.
  • Beings that don't sleep are immune.
  • May not work on those who have insonmia (the condition of being unable to sleep, or having difficulty falling asleep).
  • Like normal sleep, may only be temporary.
  • Disturbance in the real-world surroundings (e.g. the sound of someone yelling, the ringing of an alarm clock) may wake the victim up
