uchiha sasuke itachi

Special powers or special abilities are pretty awesome to have. I mean, how kick ass would you be if you have some sort of super power? Who wouldn't want to live in their own super powered fantasy? I am willing to bet that at least once, you have thought to yourself: "I wish I had that power!" I know I have. Anime is so varied and creative, if a genie could grant you one power, where would you even start?

This is entirely objective, though depending on how much havoc you want to wreck or how useful you want your powers to be, but let me tell you what powers I would love! I put a lot of thought into this list so I hope you enjoy it. This is my list of top 10 special powers in anime!

10. Voice Pheromone Alice - Reo Mouri (Gakuen Alice)

  • Episodes: 26
  • Aired: Oct 2004 - May 2005

Possessed by Reo, the voice pheromone alice proves to be quite dangerous at it can manipulate people and control them so long as they can hear the user's voice. You do not even have to be in the same room, the user can use the voice pheromone alice through different devices like phones, microphones, and speaker systems. This makes this ability dangerous to any listeners. With the voice pheromone alice, you can brainwash people, use the power of suggestion, or completely control someone's will. This is definitely a strong power!

With this power, there is no need to get violent or spill anyone's blood to get the outcome I want or defeat my own enemies. With a position of power, having a voice pheromone alice could help you rule the world!

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Jan 2012 - Mar 2012

A power passed down through the Gremory clan of demons, the Power of Destruction utilizes demonic energy to destroy anything. Rias Gremory is able to manipulate the power and even give it a magnetic field to draw people in to destroy them. This is a truly destructive power that can destroy everything.

Defeating other demons or enemies might be a breeze with the Power of Destruction. It is no wonder why Rias is the worship of all of her chess pieces. While bestowed upon humble users like Rias, the destructive force that is the Power of Destruction can be used for good. Using this power, I could protect my friends and destroy my enemies! Who wouldn't want ultimate power?

Vampire ninjas in Is This a Zombie have an arsenal of great powers. They are able to move quickly as needed, fight using the Tsubamegaeshi sword style, use red energy beams, and utilize ninjutsu.

It is the best of both worlds: vampire and ninja. You could be part assassin and creature of the night! With the stealth of a ninja and the bloodlust and immortality of a vampire, who can defeat you?

7. Sharingan - Sasuke Uchiha (Naruto)

Sasuke Uchiha
  • Episodes: 220
  • Aired: Oct 2002 - Feb 2007

Love him or hate him, Sasuke's Sharingan is pretty impressive. It gives the user the ability to copy jutsu, manipulate opponents, perform genjutsu, and see another person's chakra. The Sharingan also gives the power of perception which allows users to do things like read lips or mimic the movements of a pencil in order to cheat.

The Sharingan can also evolve into a Mangekyou Sharingan and even the Rinnegan. It is an ability with great potential. I think it would be so useful in combat for copying and reading an opponent's movements. If I was still in school and ignored the honor code, I can see some serious practical applications. You know, for those bullies?

6. Lightning Dragon Slayer Ability - Laxus Dreyar (Fairy Tail)

  • Episodes: 175
  • Aired: Oct 2009 - Mar 2013

The Dragon Slayer ability is truly limitless in power in the world of Fairy Tail, but my favorite has to be Laxus' power of lightning. Laxus is able to produce electricity from his body and manipulate electricity. The lightning dragon slayer powers seem to be especially destructive. The user is able to consume electricity or lightning to restore the user's energy and strength to continue fighting longer than most magic users.

I love the lightning dragon slayer ability because lightning is one of my favorite elements, but can you imagine how useful that power is in this day and age? Electricity is almost everywhere so you can recharge so easily and destroy anything that gets in your way. I also like the idea of being my own generator. Imagine the possibilities!

5. Super Hella Masochist - Taro Sado (MM!)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Oct 2010 - Dec 2010

Featured in MM!, the power to become the Super Hella Masochist may seem silly as it is a parody of the Super Saiyan ability, but I happen to think it is super powerful. Super Hella Masochist uses the power of masochism and perversion to give the user an incredible amount of power that can extinguish enemies. This power is so strong that the user will grow in strength if physically harmed by anyone. How do you even defeat that? Use the power of pervert energy to defeat your enemies!

4. Exquip - Erza (Fairy Tail)

  • Episodes: 175
  • Aired: Oct 2009 - Mar 2013

Exquipping is one of my favorite abilities in Fairy Tail! Erza, also known as Titannia, possess exquip magic that allows her to switch between different armors within seconds and summon hundreds of weapons to destroy her enemies. Even when her magic is running out, Erza is able to switch her armors and use her physical abilities to fight her enemies. The ability to exquip is a combination of magic and physical strength. This power makes Erza a power to be reckon with.

I believe this power is incredibly powerful and capable of taking out as many enemies as possible. I would love to be able to change my weapon as needed per my enemy's method of combat. Who wants to be stuck with Pikachu against Onyx? I want to be able to adapt to my enemy's technique and change my own to better suit me. Also, ay favorite feature of this power is the ability to switch between my street clothes and pajamas in seconds. Yup, this power has so many uses in and out of battle.

3. Dr. Blythe - Neferpitou (Hunter x Hunter)

  • Episodes: 62
  • Aired: Oct 1999 - Mar 2001

Dr. Blythe is an ability that the Chimera ant, Neferpitou, is able to activate using nen. When the Chimera ant king, Mereum, rips his arm off, Neferpitou is able to repair his arm and restore complete mobility of Mereum's arm with ease. It is an impressive ability that surpasses even modern day medical science because it can completely repair internal organs and injuries that may otherwise lead to death. It does not even require anything aside from nen on the user's part seeing as Neferpitou is able to repair his own arm after destroying it.

It may just be the medical professional side of me that is interested in this ability, but I can only see the possibilities it has for healing those that are fatally injured like those in the military or harmed during war. The power of Dr. Blythe could even surpass the most technologically advanced surgery centers to create miracles never with far fewer errors than believed possible. How could I not include such an amazing power on this list?

2. Ability to Control Blood - Mirai Kuriyama (Kyoukai no Kanata)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: Oct 2013 - Dec 2013

Mirai Kuriyama is the sole survivor of a clan that is able to manipulate her blood. Mirai uses her power to shape her blood into weapons in order to destroy youkai that may otherwise hurt others. Although it causes anemia in the user, it gives the user a power that is fueled by the user's imagination. The only real limit of this power is the limit of the user.

I think I just like powers that allow you to create a weapon out of your body, but I think this power is incredibly handy for battle as you will never be caught without a weapon. Even in day to day uses, it Is helpful for self defense. Still, I find that using one's blood as a weapon to be a wonderfully interesting idea and I wish I had it at my disposal!

1. Shikotsumyaku - Kimimaro (Naruto)

naruto kimimaro
  • Episodes: 220
  • Aired: Oct 2002 - Feb 2007

Much like Mirai's blood manipulation, the power of Shikotsumyaku enables Kimimaro to manipulate his bone cells to use his skeletal structure in combat. Kimimaro, who is capable of changing the density of his bones to make them stronger than steel, is able to wield his bones as incredible weapons to fatally injure his opponents. He can create the ultimate defense with his bones as well making Kimimaro an incredible force to be reckon with.

I love that this power is something that uses something the body already contains (your bones) to create an powerful offense and defense that can withstand most attacks. It is one of my greatest wishes to be able to use my body as a weapon so Kimimaro's power is the top of my list. It would make the most incredible close combat fighting power!

Now I have shown you a lot of special powers, but I believe there are a few that deserve honorable mentions like the ability to become a Super Saiyan from Dragon Ball, Vectors from Elfen Lied, Teleportation from Darker Than Black, and Magical Girl powers! There are so many out there that I have not gotten the privilege to be exposed to. Do you have any you want?
