    Wayward Daughter wrote:The ability to drain energy and knock people unconscious with a touch. Further contact also enables one to temporarily borrow the person's ability while they're unconscious. One's hands are surrounded by a coloured sphere when absorbing energy, and a different coloured sphere when borrowing (Jake made it up for a miniseries character, but didn't name the ability)

    What could this be called?

    Achilles Heel Detection

    This ability is similar to Fault Detection, but instead of sensing every weakness someone or something has, it only senses a person's fundamental possibly-fatal flaw.

    why not just weakness detection?

    I think it does too much to latch onto an existing ability shrug

    Laughing Achilles Heel is a metaphor for fundamental weakness Razz And like the post itself says, it only shows that one weakness, not at all of them like the existing Fault Detection.

    Animal Shifting

    The ability to transform one animal species into another. It can turn, for example, a pig into a squirrel, but it cannot turn an animal into a plant, an object or a person. It also cannot be used to transform oneself or other people into animals.

    It's just a thread for posting your own ability ideas/ideas for abilities you've gotten from other programmes, books etc. People give their opinions on the abilities, name option etc.

    The categories might not be up to date, sorry Laughing It's something we started doing due to a contributor's suggestion, but didn't keep bothering with once he left.

    Sometimes it was hard to work out what category something'd fit into shrug Some of them overlap. And I had trouble summarising the abilities.

    That's why we stopped Wink It's more fun just going crazy making up more and more new abilities.

    Have you seen how many replicating abilities Neo came up with originally? Laughing

    Oh I see. And the previous thread is left a 67 pages? I can't remember. I'm just going by what that old thread had. I should probably stop spamming up this powers thread now.
