Best Types of Magic In Skulduggery Pleasant Books

The Top Ten
1 Elemental Magic

Elemental magic is the manipulation of four types of matter: fire or plasma, water, earth, and air. Light and darkness might also count.

Great powers - who wouldn't want these?

2 Necromancy Magic

Necromancy is raising the undead to have them do your bidding, so you can have an army of skeletons with you.

Awesome power, but it could be dangerous in the wrong hands.

I mean, who wouldn't want to throw shadows everywhere?

3 Symbol Magic

This is more like runes magic, and this is a frigging awesome power. Imagine, you're tired, press a power, and everything is better. You're dirty? Press a button, hello cleanness. Someone is invading your mind? Fight back with imaginary razor-sharp thorns with the click of a button.

Did everyone also forget this is China Sorrows' discipline? She doesn't usually fight but has been shown to be incredibly powerful, and that whole attraction thing is basically mind control.

You can adapt to the situation a lot more than the other powers, and if you stay inside your house or domain, you're always safe.

4 Energy Throwers

It's better than nothing, but there's a limit to how much you can do with this type of power.

5 Wall-Walking

This falls in the same category as adept.

6 Bonebreaker

A pretty cool magic type, I mean, you can shatter people's bones just by touching them, for heaven's sake!

7 Teleportation

You can literally teleport anywhere you want!

It's really an awesome power and as long as you've traveled around, you can get yourself out of certain death, drop people in the ocean, teleport behind someone, and give them an unsuspected punch, and steal a lot of things.

8 True Name

When you know your true name, you have extreme power, but you kind of lose control.

If you know your true name, you can:
-"See" and affect the magic of others
-Share magic with other people
-Learn new abilities simply by experiencing them
-Read minds
-Repair any body damage, unless the brain is completely destroyed

Literally makes you a god. If you can control it, you're basically unstoppable.

9 Adept Magic
10 Dimensional Shunter
The Contenders
11 Gist

This power is awesome - people will surely take you seriously if you have this power. Though, you need a powerful soul to do so and have to be careful how long you release it.

12 Earth Magic

It's cool to tunnel under the ground, but this magic can be used by an elemental.

Better than earth elemental magic as you can go a lot faster and travel through many more materials, with the drawback of less versatility. Oh, and you have to gouge out your eyes.

13 Science Magic

Well, I don't quite know what this discipline actually allows you to do, but hey, it's Clarabelle's discipline, so who gives a damn?

14 Magiphage
15 Valkyrie's New Magic
16 Sensitive
17 Kineticist

Can absorb kinetic energy and turn it into raw power. This falls under adept.

18 Lightning Magic

Lightning Dave's magic

He probably is a Neoteric.

He can travel on power lines and shoot electricity.

19 Time Magic
20 Parasite Magic
21 Warlock
22 The Magic with a Name
23 Corruption Magic
24 Enhancements
25 Concealing
