Capabilities

The user’s genetic and cellular structure instantaneously rearranges according to mental input from the user. User can impersonate others or enhance one's body to combat, either by turning into animal, monsters or make the body stronger, though it depends on the user's capabilities and limitations.

Variations

  • Animal Morphing: A special type of Shapeshifting where the user can only turn into animals.
  • Biomorphing: The ability to transform only into living things (animals, bacteria, possibly even Humans or plants).
  • Body Manipulation: Manipulate one's own body structure to morph into various forms.
  • Doppelgänger Morphing: Users may become people they have seen, they may need to have a similar body mass of the person they are turning into.
  • Elasticity: Similar to Malleability in which a person's body operates skin to a rubber-band, their bodies can stretch to varying, lengthy distances.
  • Elemental Mimicry: The ability to alter one's own body mass into a particular element, not being restricted by conservation of mass.
  • Enhanced Regeneration: By altering cellular structure, one can rejuvenate cells to regenerate, and even maintain youth, granting eternal youth.
  • Evolution: Enhancement of physical capabilities, such as growing extra limbs or hardening skin.
  • Gender Transformation: The ability to alter ones and other peoples gender.
  • Malleable Anatomy: An advanced form of shapeshifting that offers complete control of one's entire body density to morph in a liquid-like fashion through amorphous, abstract forms while retaining enough tension to prevent oneself.
  • Partial Transformation: The ability to transform parts of one's body independently of the rest.
  • Reactive Adaptation: User's body instantly adapts to combat or adversities,such as growing grills or enhancing lung capabilities if fall into water, harden bones or grow wings when falling, night vision after being in the dark.
  • Self-Molecular Manipulation: Alter the molecular structures of the body to transform into various forms.
  • Size Manipulation: The ability to alter ones own size and mass by shifting additional mass from an outside source.
  • Weapon Transformation: Transform body parts, or even the entire body, into weapons.

    • Mythical Bestiary
  • Organic Constructs
  • Omnifarious

Limitations

  • Users may revert back to original form when unconscious.
  • Users may require visual or genetic source material for a copy to be made.
  • May be limited on how long transformation can last.
  • May be unable to add mass, thus maintaining the physical capabilities of it's original form.
  • May be unable to return to original form.
  • May be unable to assume the voice and accent of the person he/she shifts into (rare cases).
  • Users may be limited to humanoid shapes (human, werebeasts, etc).
  • Users may retain characteristics of their original form in their new shape (i.e., color scheme, birthmarks, scars, etc.).
  • May not be able to change genetic coding (meaning blood type, gender and DNA coding), though this does not limit the user from changing into an animal, liquid form, and such.
  • Staying extended periods in single form may start affecting the users behavior or even make them forget their true self.
  • Some users may be able to change forms (categorized as humans, cats, weapons, a body of water, etc.), but cannot shape that form into their own customization; instead, it must match their original form's shape.
    • Such shape that cannot be altered include genetic coding (gender, hair color, blood type), physical appearance (such as a girl cannot change her facial or body structure to resemble another girl's, and while she can change into a cat her fur pattern is based on her own form) and design (such as the girl changing her body into a sword but cannot customize its design for decorative effects).
    • This may not include the user's age, as it is an aspect of their original form.

Definition for Marvel Comics

Shapeshifting is the ability to change appearance and/or body structure. Different forms include:
  • Metamorph (limited to human forms, unable to change mass)
  • Animorph (take on animal forms. May be able to take on the abilities of the altered form)
  • Polymorph (assume any form, size, mass and appearance at will).
  • Therianthrope or "were-" would transform from a human to an animal (as in a "werewolf").
  • Liquification is ability to turn partially or completely into a liquid.
  • Sublimation Ability to transform into a gaseous, mist, or fog-like form.
Elasticity (stretching body like Mr. Fantastic may be considered a form of shapeshifting. So too may be changing the substance of a body into an inorganic substance (changing to a metal form like Colossus).

Shapeshifters

Characters who can change all or parts of their shape and form. This includes characters who can make them selves into copies of other characters and characters who can reshape individual parts of their bodies, possibly even changing the body's substance (i.e. knife-hands).
Also included:

  • Wereform: Ability to take on animal forms. May be able to take on the abilities of the altered form.
  • Liquification: Ability to turn partially or completely into a liquid.
  • Sublimation: Ability to transform into a gaseous, mist, or fog-like form.
Other forms of shapeshifting, such as Stretching and Size Alteration, are dealt wirth in their own categories. See Matter Manipulation and Matter Absorption for characters who can change the substance of their bodies.

    Definition for DC Comics

    Metamorphosis (also known as Shape-Shifting) is the ability to alter one's physical structure into a variety of shapes and sizes. The nature and range of such an ability varies from user to user. This power differs from Transformation, which enables a user to alter his or her physical features into one specific form. The ability to shift from one form to the next is almost always instantaneous requiring only a few seconds of concentration for the power to take effect.
    In many cases, the shifter in question can alter their form to mimic the physical characteristics of people or animals. Some Shape-shifters can mimic another's form down to the molecular level, while others may be hampered by certain restrictions. Beast Boy for example, can shape-shift into any animal that he can think of, but his skin and/or fur and plumage will always be green in color. Clayface on the other hand, can imitate any living creature and can even compensate for finer details such as density and texture.

    Many supernatural creatures possess the power of Shape-shifting. Werewolves are most popularly known as shape-shifters, but their ability is actually just an aspect of Transformation, as they can only shift back and forth between two predetermined forms. Vampires on the other hand, possess true shape-shifting to a limited degree. They can alter their physical structure to assume the shape of a wolf, a bat, and sometimes even a fine mist.
