Monster summoning. Maybe you might not consider it a power, but I do.

@ZombieBigfoot: And the only thing that can hinder it is alchohol, or as it's called on the street, Kryptonite du Cain.

Normal human, not even peak.

@MasterofChaos: That's actually quite fun. Just made one recently myself. The challenge of the character is going to be.. exciting.

@.Longshot.: Head trauma does that quite well, too.

Hydrokinesis seems to be a rare one, as well. Least I haven't seen anyone using it.

I've seen a lot of people use that (myself included), just not a lot at the moment.

I used to use hydrokinesis all the time. I would say a power that is usefull, and underused is geokinetics or maybe even empathy

Angelic abilities in general. Alot of people go the gothic demon angle but a rare few try and pull off being the epitome of altruism. Alot of sub abilities that could go with that

#28 Posted by ArtairSinclaire (271 posts) - - Show Bio

@Surkit: I have an angelic-powered character. Kind of. Just never got anywhere with him.

Even if you used it constantly the idea is still a rarity though

@Surkit: I know, I was just sayin'. And I think I only have 25. That's not much, really.

#33 Posted by ArtairSinclaire (271 posts) - - Show Bio

@Surkit: Sha and Icarusflies have upwards of 100 each, I believe. 25 is very little compared to that.

To me shrinking is the equivalent of making the enemies you face into giants so by itself I think it is overrated except for stealth missions.

On topic. Flight: it's not so much underrated but it is very seldom utilized to its potential in combat.

Were talking about how many people use the power on the vine RPG forum. A whole lot of people here use flight, including in combat.

@Surkit: Eh. Probably gonna start slowing down. I might make one more, but that's about it for the near future, I think.

True, but I think he means Flight is underrated. I mean if you could fly that would bring alot of questions with awesome answers to explore, expecially if it was the one thing you focused on.

@ArtairSinclaire: Cool. I slowed myself at a third to not spread my pov too thin, don't know how you do it with 25.

Ah. Didn't notice that it was an RPG forum. I just assumed it was a "battle" because of the thread name. Still, Underrated and how many people use a power are two different things and it still could not be used to it's potential by some rpgers.

No time manipulation, It's manipulation of his own PERCEPTION Of time. Nothing ACTUALLY Slows down, It's just his perception of it increases.
