Mind Manipulation

The Haitian from Heroes could control the mental functions of other beings by making contact with them


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.



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.
