Pathokinesis, or emotion manipulation, is the ability to sense and manipulate the emotions of others. It is a sub-power of Mind Control.


Users of pathokinesis can change the emotions of others to give themselves a tactical advantage or more power.


  • Emotional manipulation: The Ghost Writer's reality warping extends to the ability to dictate the emotions of others. This appears to be unique to his reality warping abilities.
  • Enchantment: Humans in the vicinity of Sayonara Pussycat are immediately enchanted by her presence and display a level of worship.
  • Love spell: Ember can use her guitar to cast love spells on others to distract them so she can continue with her own plans.


The effects of this power can be broken. For example, when Danny falls in love with Sam in "Fanning the Flames" due to Ember's love spell, Sam breaks the spell by kissing Dash, which breaks Danny's heart. This snaps him out of it so he can go fight Ember.
