The power to overcome outside forces with a kiss between two lovers. A variation of Love Empowerment.

Also Called

  • Kiss of True Love


User can break through any outside forces, including magic/curses/etc. with a kiss shared between two lovers. For instance, if one person is cursed into deep slumber, a kiss of true love will return that person's consciousness.

In rare cases, True Love's kiss neither has to be on the lips or between lovers (like between a parent and child).



  • Takes powerful mutual love for the kiss to be effective.
    • Can be persuaded by emotion-based powers, such as Apathy.
  • In most cases, the kiss is not effective if one of the two lovers is dead.
