I always admired powers that are introduced in anime and manga, because the vast majority of them are really awesome and convenient. I’m going to share 5 of my favorite anime powers that I would love to have myself to make life more exciting as well as a lot more easier on certain occasions.
Note: Some power/weapon descriptions may contain minor spoilers of what they can do in the anime. Read at your own discretion.
Alchemy (Fullmetal Alchemist series)
Alchemy from Fullmetal Alchemist is one of the powers I would die for. I can just imagine myself gathering some scrap metal, plastic, wires and other odds and ends in order to build myself a beast PC or to simply fix something that broke. Secretly making money would also be convenient and would guarantee that I wouldn’t starve.
Qwaser Powers (Seikon no Qwaser series)
It wouldn’t say no to the power of being able to bend certain type of metal or some other elements to help me perform day to day tasks more efficiently. However, if it would be possible I’d prefer to be without a Maria, because I feel like sucking on boobs would get old as fast as in the anime – though having a cute girl around at all times wouldn’t be that bad, now that I think about it.
Instant Transmission (Dragonball Z)
Who wouldn’t want to instantly travel to any location he/she can visualize? Just imagine being able to transport to school, work or even to a holiday location in less than a second. This power would serve me well, because it would allow me to travel all around the world on a very small budget – Japan here I come!
Vectors (Elfen Lied)
We all have times when we could use a pair of extra hands (or more) and having vectors from Elfen Lied would definitely help me out in many situations. I’m very small (5’2’’ or 158cm) so I’d most likely use vectors in day to day life to reach what I deem high places which are a pain in the ass, especially when cleaning. Having an extra pair or two of hands would also come in handy when moving stuff, since I wouldn’t need help from anyone to move furniture around. All in all, having/controlling vectors would be real handy.
Elemental Bending (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
I know that Avatar is technically not an anime (depends on your definition of what counts as anime), but it certainly has the spirit of one so I think it counts. It would be great to be able to go camping and bend myself a nice dirt tent, travel on any surface on a ball made from air, get drinkable water from plants or air and/or warm myself while outside by making a fire in the palm of my hand. Of course being able to do all of those things would be epic, but I’d be fine with being able to bend just one of the elements – preferably water.
These are some of my favorite powers featured in anime. What anime power would you want to have if given the chance?
