Superpower Wiki
"All is powerless before the might of my SOUL!"
― Brook (One Piece)

― Castiel talking to Bobby about the power of the soul (Supernatural; "Frontierland")
"The power to dominate souls...? Is that what this is!?"
― Guido Mista on Silver Chariot Requiem (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part V: Golden Wind/Vento Aureo)

  • Anima/Psyche/Immortal Essence Bending/Control/Manipulation


Users can create shape and manipulate the soul, the incorporeal and immortal essence of a living thing, souls are usually most obviously present in sentient beings. At some level all biological organisms have souls, and even non-biological entities (such as rivers and mountains) possess something that is analogous to a soul.

Most users have to learn to control their own soul first and expand from there, some may be able to learn how to tap into the essence of everything living.






  • Soul Immunity
  • May be limited to manipulating the soul of either oneself or others.
  • Users of Eternal Soul and Soul Anchoring cannot be manipulated.
  • Cannot affect soulless beings as they have no soul to manipulate.
  • May be dangerous/ineffective if the target's soul is stronger than that of the user.
