The power to manipulate the subconscious. Sub-power of Dream Manipulation, Sleep Manipulation, Telepathy and Mental Manipulation.

Also Called

  • Subconscious Control
  • Unconscious Mind Manipulation


The user can manipulate everything hidden inside their or others subconscious, including ideas, wishes or desires, traumatic memories, painful emotions, etc. This allows them manipulate the hidden aspects of the mind in various ways, for example arrange memories as one desires, awaken secrets and information hidden deep in the subconscious, and give shape to emotions or thoughts hidden inside the mind.

If the user is powerful enough they can erase what resides in the subconscious (like their capacity to choose right from wrong) and leave only what they deem "important" making them very strong or very dangerous. Another rare use is the capability to manipulate dreams, able to even create very vivid nightmares.
