"There was something strange about the way he walked... much more vertical than usual."
― Abe Simpson on a cat burglar, The Simpsons

The power to fasten onto and climb vertical and horizontal surfaces without falling.

Also Called

  • Adhesive Climbing
  • Surface Scaling
  • Wall Adhesion/Clinging/Walking

Capabilities

The user can climb walls and stay unto ceilings. They do not deny gravity, but adhere to surfaces unaided using various ways. However in order to truly be "crawling" on the user must be able to maintain balance for long periods of time, compared to Wallrunning where the energy is only temporary.

Beings with super human strength or super strong and dense claws could simply dig their fingers or into a surface, then propelling upward and digging in again, generating the effect of wall crawling. In some cases, the user may simply be able to make use of any handholds they find, no matter how small, to wall crawl.

Those with Reptilian Physiology could have microscopic setae on their hands and feet like a gecko, or suction pads like a frog.

Techniques

  • Ceiling Cling - The user clings to the ceiling to either hide or ambush enemies.
  • Wall Jump/Wall Kick - The user sticks to a wall and proceeds to jump off of it, often doing so between two walls. This also allows for a form of Supernatural Leap.

Variations

Associations

Limitations

  • Hand or footwear, such as shoes, socks, and gloves may nullify this ability.
  • May have to concentrate to remain on the surface.
  • May only be able to stick to certain surfaces.
  • May not work if the wall is completely smooth with no handholds.
  • May be dependent on the user's own center of gravity.
  • May be vulnerable to Anti-Adhesion.
