Also Called

  • Chrono Force
  • Chronokinesis
  • Temporal Control
  • Temporal Manipulation
  • Time Control
  • Time Warping


The user can manipulate the time in general area or a specific target in various manners, the basics revolving around accelerating, slowing, stopping and even rewinding or looping. The range of area affected is proportional to the mastery of the user, with top levels can affect the entire space and time continuum.

Since "time" exists and flows within "space", the two are interrelated, and by manipulating time, one is basically distorting space proportionally. The effects of this relative distortion can vary, such as controlling time of a mere object or person may not affect the space they reside in, but to twist the time-stream of a region of space can cause the area itself to warp. Due to time existing in one space, manipulating it cannot affect another dimension.






  • May have limited ability in both the length of time and area they can affect.
  • Users of Chronolock and Temporal Lock are immune to this power.

    • Spatial Manipulation allows you to manipulate the characteristics of space including time so space>time. Furthermore, by manipulating space ...
    • I think that time can’t exist without space. Without any plane of existence to be in, time ceases to exist. Therefore, space>time.
