"Control Time, control everything!"
― Acronix and Krux (LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu)
"This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down."
― One of Gollum's riddles for Bilbo (The Hobbit Ch.5)
"The Time Gem: with it, I can reach back into the primordial past or delve into the far distant future. Nothing that ever was or ever will can hide from my inspection. And if I find anything which offends, I can modify it to fit my every need or want. Infinity is clay waiting for me to mold it."
― Thanos on the Time Gem (The Thanos Quest - Marvel Comics)

The power to manipulate time. Sub-power of Space-Time Manipulation. Variation of Universal Force Manipulation.

Also Called[]

  • Chronokinesis/Horokinesis/Tempokinesis
  • Fourth/Temporal Dimension Control/Manipulation
  • Time Control

Capabilities[]

Users can control and manipulate time, the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in an apparently irreversible succession from the past, through the present, into the future, in the general area or for a specific target in various ways, with the most basic of acts revolving around accelerating, slowing, stopping, and even rewinding or looping it. The range of the affected area is proportional to the mastery of the user, with those at higher levels being able affect the entire space-time continuum.

Since time exists and flows within space, the two are interrelated, and by manipulating time, one is also distorting space proportionally. The effects of this relative distortion can vary, however. For example, controlling time of a mere object or person may not affect the space they reside in, whereas twisting the time-stream of an entire region of space can cause the area itself to warp. Additionally, due to time being so closely intertwined with our three-dimensional space, manipulating it might not affect another dimension, such as heaven or hell, in the same way it affects our own. Also there are some high level users being powerful enough to manipulate and control time beyond universal level, also possibly manipulate different forms/types of time and possibly reaching nigh omnipotent level.
