Light shows no mercy!Xavier (Mobile Legends Bang Bang)

Since beginning-less time, darkness thrives in the void but always yields to purifying light.Lion Turtle (Avatar: The Last Airbender)

Take courage in the light!Luxanna Crownguard (League of Legends)

Light can do a lot of things. It can illuminate. It can welcome. It can warm. As it turns out, it can also make laser beams that slice through protosteelToa Takanuva, BIONICLE

The user can create, shape and manipulate visible light, commonly referred to as light, is electromagnetic radiation that is visible to the human eye, and is responsible for the sense of sight.

Primary properties of visible light are intensity, propagation direction, frequency or wavelength spectrum, and polarization, while its speed in a vacuum (299,792,458 meters per second/186,000 MPS) is one of the fundamental constants of nature. Visible light, as with all types of electromagnetic radiation (EMR), is experimentally found to always move at this speed in a vacuum.

In common with all types of EMR, visible light is emitted and absorbed in tiny "packets" called photons and exhibits properties of both waves and particles. This property is referred to as the wave–particle duality. The study of light, known as optics, is an important research area in modern physics.






  • Photokinetic Immunity
  • May be unable to create light, being limited to manipulating only from already existing sources.
  • Distance, energy mass, precision, etc. depend upon the knowledge, skill, and strength of the user, and their power's natural limits.
  • Users light is affected by everything that all light is, unless they are powerful/skilled enough to overcome these limits:
  • Could be overwhelmed by Darkness Manipulation.
  • Since light is a constantly existing element, the user will have to keep any light constructs in check to keep them from going on forever.
  • Weak against Light Boundary/Light Absorption.
