"Remain very still. They can sense movement. Apparently, they can also hear me talking to myself."
― Octavius (Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian)

Also Called

  • Sonar/Sonic/Vibration Detection

  • Sonar/Sonic/Sound Surveillance


The user can detect sound-waves, whether it comes from skies, the earth, or the seas. Anything that generates noise, sound, sonic waves, or vibrations, the user can detect where ever the source comes from.




  • Needs to be able to detect the soundwaves, so anything that prevents sound blocks this ability
