The power to be an empowered monster. Variation to Monster Physiology and Empowered Subject Physiology. Opposite to Mutated Monster Physiology.

Also Called

  • Advanced Monster Mimicry/Physiology
  • Metamonster/Neomonster/Supermonster Mimicry/Physiology
  • Micromutated Monster Mimicry/Physiology (Rational Only)
  • Superpowered Monster Physiology


The user either is or can become an empowered monster with powers and abilities that aren’t gained from birth or have abilities beyond the limitations of their race, and are much stronger than regular monsters. Empowered monsters are able to possess powers and abilities without their physiology monster or almost altered.

They can be divided into two groups:


Supermonsters of this category gain their powers through evolution, birth, genetic engineering, exposition to radiation or biohazardous substances, like mutagens, or other scientific means.
In some ways, certain monsters that are of this classification might undergo minor physical changes without their physiology monster fully or almost gone, like their irises changing to any color like a fiery shade of yellow, red, etc, retractable claws or spikes, fangs or sharp teeth, among others. Moreover, these kinds of monsters will be able to possess powers without their physiologies being altered.


Non-scientific individuals gain their powers by being given them, enchantment, blessing, granted wishes, etc., without bio-engineering based alternatives. Unlike scientific-based monsters this category of metamonsters wouldn't have to be able to suffer mutations and instability of their DNA, which can be caused in certain specific ways. Unlike rational based monsters they are more likely to maintain their respective states because they don't share the same genetic unpredictably that rational-based monsters are more likely to have.
