Note: Taken directly from VS Battles.
Mind manipulation is an informal term for a psychic attack, or another type of attack that affects the mind. Such attacks often are used to destroy, shut down, control, or deceive an enemy. Characters with psychic defenses can usually resist mind manipulation attacks, but otherwise, they are incredibly broken.
- Destroying the mind
- Shutting down the mind
- Illusion Creation
- Torturing the mind
- Controlling the mind
- Altering memories
Some types of mind manipulation attacks that don't work on conventional telepathic principles, such as The Culture's effectors and Rohan Kishibe's Heaven's Door, and thus cannot be resisted by normal psychic defenses. These are considered even more broken than the normal type.
- Much like Soul Manipulation against souless beings, this power is useless against mindless opponents (such as possessed or cursed objects and weapons, machines and many types of robots, mindless beasts, etc).
- Certain enemies may resist or outright negate mind powers entirely if they happen to be in Berserk Mode at the time.
- Sometimes user cannot fully control the power or may lose control of it.
- May suffer side-effects if they push their mind too hard.
