The power to manipulate the vectors of matter and its related energy. Sub-power of Physics Manipulation. Opposite to Magnitude Manipulation.

Also Called

  • Direction Manipulation
  • Geometric Vector Control
  • Redirection Manipulation
  • Refraction Manipulation
  • Regokinesis
  • Spatial Vector Transformation


The user can change the magnitude and the direction properties (vector) of an object to achieve a desired result.

Vectors are properties existing as either one of two types: position (location) and momentum (velocity). Position is distance (or coordinate) and direction in relation to something (orientation); momentum is speed and direction of motion (trajectory). The manipulation of momentum results in changes in motion; the control of position allows for alteration of location. Even if the magnitude of a vector was zero, it would still count as one due to it also having a direction.

All forms of matter can be described as either having or being vectors, and by exploiting this fact, a user of this power can theoretically create an "absolute defense" that prevents any harmful vectors from bypassing its boundary (possibly doing so by reversing the direction of kinetic vectors or displacing position vectors as to send the associated object to alternate regions in space).


Basic Level

  • Acceleration by increasing the magnitude and the direction of force vectors.
  • Attack Reversal by reflecting the vectors of any attack or opposing force.
  • Deflection by inverting/reversing the direction of momentum vectors.
  • Inertia Negation by nullifying all vectors that are related to inertia.
  • Motion Reversal: by reversing the direction of vectors in movement.
  • Vector Creation: by creating any kind of vector to be used.

Advanced Level

Master Level

Ultimate Level



  • May have limited range, including touch only.
  • May only be able to affect vectors related to physical objects.
  • May only be able to affect one of the two quantities of a vector (direction or magnitude), while leaving the other virtually unaffected.
  • If the user is required to perform calculations to use this ability, Enhanced Intelligence may be needed.
    • If the user lacks Enhanced Endurance, their performance of calculations to use this ability may cause them to suffer from exhaustion and other negative side effects.
  • May only be able to manipulate a certain number of vectors at a time; distraction may put user at risk.
  • May be vulnerable to any harmful effect that is unrelated to vectors.
  • If the ability is used to form an automatic reflection field, the opponent can take advantage of it by reversing their attack at the exact moment of contact with the field's area of effect, which tricks it into drawing the attack towards the user and thus allowing it to harm them.
  • If user does not possess Enhanced Lung Capacity or Oxygen Independence, they will become vulnerable to Deoxygenation.

    • Well, I'm not an expert on the subject but... Thinking about it, I believe you could both use it offensively and defensively. Thinking of...
    • You can use to act on anything so long as it can be perceived as having both a size and direction. Since direction relates to space, t...

    • I have been looking around and was not sure if this would be counted as purely Alchemy or Vector Manipulation through Alchemy: ...
    • Totally Alchemy. If it was the latter, then he wouldn't have had trouble beating all the alchemists, soldiers, chimeras combined.
