Also Called

  • Charmspeaking
  • Compelling Voice
  • Hypersuasion
  • Influencing
  • Mind Control Voice
  • Persuasion
  • Suggestion
  • Vocal Charisma/Compulsion
  • Vocal-Induced Manipulation


The user can compel people by speaking, the victims are unable to disobey; the seemingly cogent commandment is far too compelling. Users can persuade people into hurting/killing themselves or even flip around their sense of logic, but can never cause victims to achieve what they are not capable of (e.g., Flight).



  • Confession Inducement: Implore others nesting bile and secrecy holstered beneath their false appeal to come clean, and even act on their most selfish impulses.
  • Inhibition Release Compel people to admit to and act upon repressed mandates to slake their personal selfish desires.
  • Logic Mandate: Skilled enough users can control a victim's perception of reality, rendering others comatose with a simple sentence or changing moral alignment to suit their whim.
    • Convinced Inevitability: Users can convince anyone of most any unavoidable outcome, thus earning their adherence to said principles and their set directive.
  • Truth Inducement: to force veracity by vocal questions and prevent them to come up with a lie, similar to Lie Detection.



  • The psychic ability to put one into a trance-like state of extreme suggestibility.
  • Autohypnosis also called Autohypnotism, Autosuggestion, Hypnotic Self-Control or Hypnotic Autosuggestion is the psychic ability to place oneself under hypnotic control.
  • Hypnotic Beauty also called Blinding Beauty is the ability to stun subjects with unnaturally good looks (trapping them in the thought of one’s beauty like a deer in headlights, similar to Mesmorization or Stupefaction).
  • Hypnotic Breasts also called Bust Hypnosis is the ability to emit a powerful hypnotic trance upon visual contact with the user's breasts, while under the trance subjects are under the user's control over any suggestions the user desire (this effect may take a few minutes to work or can happen instantly depending on the subject).
  • Hypnotic Call, also called Hypnotic Lure is the ability to draw subjects to the user without the use of music or otherwise lyrical undertones.
  • Hypnotic Charm, also called Charisma or Animal Magnetism is the ability to hypnotically cause subjects to like the user, trust, respect, and become doting sycophants that will do anything to please them.
  • Hypnotic Medium is the ability to channel one’s hypnotic powers through an object. The most common object to use is a pendulum with a jewel or gem on it (though other media can be used, even a pinwheel or the like).
  • Hypnotic Music also called Hypnotizing Music or Hypnotic Composition is a variation of Hypnotism in which the user channels their subliminal powers of hypnotic control (only the trance-inducing, not the commanding) through one’s music. This can be channeled through any instrument one plays (if one uses the voice, it is instead Hypnotic Song), as long as the music is played accurately.
  • Hypnotic Song is the ability to emit a beautiful song that entrances people and subliminally compels them to either follow any predetermined orders given by the user in the song or to try to reach the source of the song, no matter what dangerous obstacles are in the way of the path (it may even just mesmerize a subject or make them want to dance).
  • Hypnotic Stare or Hypnotic Gaze is the ability to place subjects into a hypnotic trance by looking them in the eyes.
  • Hypnotic Touch or Tactile Hypnosis is the ability to place subjects into a hypnotic trance by touching them.
  • Hypnotic Voice is the ability to speak with a calm and soothing voice which places subjects into a state of extreme suggestibility.

Psychological Intuition

  • A true manipulator's best quality is the capacity to see and understanding, predicting, and manipulating personal behavior. A skilled user can spot another's deepest secrets or inherent flaws with but a short conversation, turning ones very Words into deadly weapons able to apply subtle mental pressure enabling the easy manipulation of individuals.
  • Able to manipulate people by making them hear what they need to follow your intentions.

Subliminal Messaging

  • The ability to implant thoughts or ideas into the minds of others.
  • Pushing is the ability to implant memories, thoughts and emotions into the minds of others.
  • Subliminal Seduction is the ability to project seductive thoughts to the minds of others.



  • Will not work on users of Muting
  • Users of Control Immunity are immune.
  • May not work on users of Psychic Shield (highly resistant), Psychic Immunity (impervious) and Indomitable Will.
  • Users must be able to speak to control people, and subjects must be able to understand and hear the commands.
  • Someone with high or super intelligence may be resistant/immune to persuasion.
  • The same fault applies to those of low intellect, being too stupid to grasp the user's meaning.
  • Anything that prevents the user from speaking or target from hearing blocks this power.
  • If wanting someone to forget something, sometimes they will make them stop thinking it but the thought would still linger in the back of their brain, and they may try to ask it again if it is a question.
  • Complex commands may be less effective than simple commands.
    • Complex command ex. - Telling your victim to bake a cake by reciting the recipe and instructions.
    • Simple command ex. - Telling your victim to pick something up.
