The power to possess a symbiotic relationship with at least one other being.

Also Called

  • Symbiotic Exchange/Relationship


The user has a symbiotic relationship with other beings/entities, becoming hosts to another being/entity that lives in or on the user, generally granting them enhanced condition and new powers/abilities. The being/entity may be a spirit, angel, demon, dimensional entity, deity, or even something as a simple as a parasite and any powers it gives is likely to vary depending on what it is.

The symbiote usually requires the essence of the host in order to survive. They may feed off its host's body, mind, soul, emotions, life force etc. but in return they give the host greater power similar to the ways of equivalent exchange.






  • Bond Destruction/Symbiote Manipulation could defeat the user.
  • The symbiote may take over the user completely.
  • Host may be driven insane by symbiote.
  • Both symbiote and host may need each other to survive.
  • Both symbiote and host may need a mutual relationship on any degree.
