Power to manipulate the vectors of matter and energy. Sub-power of Physics Manipulation, variation of Velocity Manipulation.

The user can change the magnitude and direction (vector) of an object to maneuver it in the desired way, regardless of preexisting vectors. This also applies to static or non-moving objects, technically speaking, the object still has momentum as it is moving through space. Since nearly everything in existence has vectors, manipulation of them can essentially grant the user an "Absolute Defense" that prevents the user from harm, among many other possibilities.


  • May require physical contact.
  • May be limited to affecting only physical matter or energy.
  • If the user's version of this power is calculation-based, Enhanced Intelligence may be required.
  • If the user does not possess Enhanced Endurance, they may be defeated from exhaustion and attrition of constant calculations to use their power.
  • Users may be limited to controlling certain amount of vectors at a time (e.g can only manipulating gravity vector), and therefore being distracted with one task may leave them open for an attack.
  • Vulnerable to powers that do not have vectors.
    • Attacks of/from a different dimension — Dimensional Slicing or Remote Teleportation being examples — may bypass the "Ultimate Defense" unless the user can manipulate vectors of different dimensions as well.
    • Conceptual, Magic and Mental Attacks that forgoes vector movement can bypass defense.
    • May be vulnerable to instantaneous attacks.
  • If the user's ability is automatic and set on deflecting all strikes at all times, the opponent can take advantage by attacking, and then quickly pulling away just before contact. This will have the "reverse vector" to reverse the pulling away, allowing the opponent to punch the user, which in fact can increase the power of the punch, thus bypassing the "absolute defense".
  • If user does not possess Enhanced Lung Capacity or Oxygen Independence, they will become vulnerable to Deoxygenation.

    • Bump Was gonna make a thread about this topic too but it seems there's already a thread about it and still unfinished
    • My suggestion is we use FC/OC GIF from their vector page

    • Understood. The problem for me is when some character isn't stated (at least in their profiles) to control vectors. Not saying that t...
    • Featherine and the Counter-Actor are so potent reality warpers that there is no question that they are able to (and it is in my opinion comple...
