Users can create, shape and manipulate sound, a periodic disturbance of a medium (air, ground, water, etc) that radiates outward linearly in the form of a pressure wave. The effect these waves upon the ear is perceived as sound. From the point of view of physics, sound is considered to be the waves of vibratory motion themselves, whether or not they are heard by the human ear.

User can mimic, intensify, hush, and distort, as well warp, strengthen, echo, speed up, and slow down sound, using it as a powerful physical force and high-speed movement. At low frequencies, sound can be potentially fatal to living beings by causing internal damage, while high frequencies cannot be heard by normal humans but can be used for sonar-like effects. Since sound vibrations can travel through the air, ground, water and any form of medium, defense by using physical barriers is difficult. The vibrations can also affect at a molecular level. In essence, sound is an invisible, deadly weapon and a versatile tool. A common use of this ability is Sonic Scream.


Affect those who hear:

User's senses are finely tuned to sound:





  • May be unable to create sound, being limited to manipulating only from already existing sources.
  • Distance, mass, precision, etc. depend upon of the knowledge, skill, and strength of the user.
  • Sound requires a medium to travel through, such as air, ground or water, though it can be virtually anything.
  • Sound Nullification and Silence Manipulation can nullify the user's powers.
  • Users of Sound Immunity or Sound Absorption are either immune or highly resistant.
  • Propagation of sound waves can be disrupted by wind making Air Manipulation a perfect counter
