Capabilities

The user possesses tactile telekinesis, the power to manipulate matter through mental effort or other means through tactile interactions. Telekinesis and tactile telekinesis differ in their distance of influence. Normal telekinetics can move matter and objects from a distance without using direct contact with the body; meantime, tactile telekinetics are restricted to what they're touching. The user does not have access to telekinesis popular and essential applications. However, they do possess some unique characteristics. They can manipulate themselves, which can be considered a personalized variation of telekinesis. Users' body is regarded as an "object," so they can telekinetically control themselves, ranging from manipulating bodily movements to one's molecules. They can move their own body regardless of its current state, create a force-field to protect themselves from gunfire, explosions, etc., and increase their condition. The user can telekinetically push themselves through the air to achieve flight. Due to this, the user can have absolute control over themselves if telekinetics attempt to move them.

By using tactile telekinesis, users can "move" massive structures (buildings, armored vehicles, battleships, planes, etc.) without them crumbling, appearing as supernatural strength and moving matter that is on the same surface. As tactile telekinetics can't manipulate matter beyond touch, they can find methods of achieving normal telekinesis by creating a specialized force field. This force field will envelop anything within it, allowing users to interact with objects within it.

Advanced users can manipulate anything on a molecular, atomic, or subatomic level to achieve extraordinary results. With enough expertise, experience, and knowledge, the user can bypass their limitations on physical matter and manipulate on a metaphysical level.

Limitations

  • Depends on the user's understanding and experience with this ability.
  • Might be weakened, nullified, or interrupted by stress, fear, distractions, disbelief, lack of confidence, willpower, etc.
  • Some users may need to activate the power consciously.
  • Unlike regular telekinesis, the user's powers are only helpful if they touch something.
  • May need concentration and calmness to perform various and complicated actions accurately, especially abilities near master, ultimate, and absolute level.
  • Users of Telekinesis Negation and Telekinesis Immunity can oppose and defeat the user.
  • Continuous or heavy enough damage can either weaken or break through the user's the force field.

Trivia

  • It is possible for professional tactile telekinetics to manipulate anything beyond touch distance. An example is manipulating molecules/atoms/subatomic particles around the user. As they directly touch the user, they can expand their telekinetic influence from tactile boundaries to simulate and rival normal telekinetics.
