Please allow me to be a douche for a moment.

"I have the power to have all powers"
Who has this power? Eric Cartman, South Park, season 8 episode 1, "Good Times with Weapons"

On a serious note, who wouldn't want this power? Plus, it would be cool to see a well rounded character with this ability.

Technically not all at once, but...it counts. She could possess any power, hence she has the potential for any and all powers.

I would prefer how Cartman uses his power. He just says he has it and poof he has it. It's such a little kid power.  :clapping:

here's the actual clip.

I know. I just kinda saw an opportunity and I took it. She brings up a fair power, though: power/energy absorption. It might've been what was meant by "leech", but that's not a great way to put it.

oh wow, i totally forgot about this post ...

i mean, i guess i can add more to it when i have time but it seems a lot easier just looking these up on Wikipedia.

and yes Leech is how i described powers like Rogues at the time (to absorb/drain other powers), it felt appropriate at the time but if you have another way of describing it then i'm all ears.

I've generally heard it as power absorption or energy absorption, but it also depends on your type. I mentioned on my thread about psychic powers the thing that is empathy. As for "reading the future", usually it's called "divination" in some circumstances (namely when you're looking for it) and "clairvoyance" in others (namely when it just comes at you without warning).

There's also the capacity to manipulate all sorts of things, like bone (think Kimimaro) or blood (ATLA/LOK's bloodbending). Don't forget lovelies like Storm who can dictate the weather, and any kind of animal hybridization.

It might do well at some point to also kind of describe some of these. If you'd like, I can go back to my thread on psychic powers and continue to expand on those by adding more there and kind of tie it in with this one.

I like powers where the character changes with the environment. Like Kevn 11 from Ben 10, where he became whatever he was touching. Powers like that are awesome.
Inspiration from the strangest places is often the most welcome.

Or maybe some kinda sci-Fi powers like Seeding, where you plant a cell in the ground and when your main body dies, the seed takes nutrients from the surrounding environment and rebuilds your body.

Or perhaps Potential Dictation, where you can determine all the possible outcomes of all actions at all times and affect the chances of a particular outcome to take effect over others with certain limitations.

Or maybe even Invasion, where sending your own cells into a body and take over it. Just like some fungi do to ants.

Or the ability to store things in Hammerspace. Some kind of two dimensional subdimensio that can store seemingly limitless amounts of things as long as you know the proper coordinates from where you recall the things.

B   r   u   h   .

All of those are kickass as hell.

Have we already discussed time manipulation, or perception of time here? I can't remember.

Time manipulation is always difficult, since time isn't a simple dimension. Say, if you go back in time, do you go back in time in your potentiality or do you transport your memory existence to another potentiality, with the knowledge of the events of your potentiality? And if that happens, does it mean your previous potentiality becomes void and the new potentiality takes precedens? Or does your differing potentiality overwrite some key parts of the current potentiality and cause it to collapse to your potentiality? If there is no collapse to a preceeding potentiality, does it mean that the potentiality that you thought existed before this one is in actuality the same potentiality, but the you... Preceeded and retraced the set "linearity" before recoursing it to a more desirable one?

Luckily Steins;Gate has a pretty okay presentation of these logistics. But yeah, time is a very flexible element, and one that can be hard to decipher the consequences of.
