Description

This is the ability to physically and/or psychically assume a new physical appearance.

Uses/Applications (Pros)

One with this ability could alter their body (or specific parts/areas) to resemble an inanimate object, at will. In addition, one could alter their body (or specific parts/areas) to resemble a person, at will. Furthermore, one could alter their body (or specific parts/areas) to resemble a plant or an animal (including possibly prehistoric, mythical and/or alien species), at will. One can also alter their body to combine traits of different objects and/or subjects for a custom identity, at will. One could even alter their body to passively deform under pressure, at will.

Weaknesses/Limitations (Cons)

Similar/Related Abilities

  • Alternate Form- This ability only allows one or a few different shapes to assume.
  • Density Shifting- This ability only alters the body to become more more or less dense.
  • Malleability- This ability allows the body to change shape but maintaining the user's color scheme (while true Shapeshifting allows the body to change shape and color); also, this ability can occur on a passive level, while Shapeshifting is a largely conscious power.
  • Size Shifting- This ability only alters physical stature (and often, only proportionally).
