Top 10 Elemental Powers

The Top Ten
1 Air

I think air is the most underestimated. Air is obviously the most powerful and convenient but often it's seen as trivial. I would definitely choose to control air. With fire the most I'd probably use it for is to light a candle, for earth I have no idea what I'd do, with water I'd probably go to my neighbour's pool and have fun there but with air you can use it for so many things. Levitating things towards you, flying, jumping higher, running faster, scoring better in sports like tennis, netball and so much more. Plus, when you look at the media, for instance Avatar the Last Airbender... air is literally in the name and has so much proof air is the most powerful. And there's a reason the Ancient Greeks gave their most powerful god control over the sky domain. I don't want to turn this into a rant because I am known in my friendship group for that but air is 100% the most powerful, plus it can be used anywhere and for everyday things.

How can anything beat this element? Fire? Simply put it out with the removal of oxygen. Water? It can't do anything to air as air can't be touched by it. And air can manipulate temperature to evaporate the water. Earth?
Use air to stop the air in its spot and it can't do anything anymore. Lightning cannot do anything if you are air, then you just remove the oxygen, and lightning cannot exist anymore. Someone said fire can be a form of electricity that's ridiculous. Fire is generated through electricity so no you cannot utilize lightning. Water can be evaporated and lacks power in quick kills. Earth lacks versatility and if you can fly then there isn't really much you can do. Lightning is an extremely quick kill but usually can only attack one dude at a time. Ice is cool but melts, and temperature can do that. The ones that can attack air are light and darkness but we ain't including those because they are way too strong. Moving the speed of light and making black holes is just ...more

Air can be used for practically anything, and you don't even have to be immune to it. You can shield yourself from anything that could harm you by creating a barrier with wind going at unmatched speeds. Also, depending on how much control you have over the element, you might be able to fuse your senses with it in a way. By this I mean you could feel anything the wind touched, hear what was around it, etc. You can control basically any other element with wind except maybe Earth because it would be hard to lift a chunk of the/a planet using wind alone. A potential downside to having Air/Wind as an element could be that you couldn't create wind. Air would be in most places you went but if you couldn't create or intensify wind without at least a small breeze you would be powerless in an underground fight. Lastly, it is possible that, if you had this element, you could multiply air, keeping someone who had little oxygen from suffacating. I'm not trying to imply that this is the strongest ...more

Thank you to anyone who voted for this. Air is what we breathe in. It's what we fly in. And think about the Greek gods (#Notreal) Zeus is considered the most powerful gods. Next to Poseidon and Hades, So if you've been living in a hole, I'll tell you, Air is the most powerful element

2 Fire

Fire has to be the most powerful element you can create blades like knives and daggers out of fire or you can create ninja star like weapons out of fire you can use fire to fly and it is incredibly destructive more destructive than lightning. If fire is hot enough it can evaporate water and ice it can be used to create sheild's to protect your self the smoke from fire poison's air and it can be created in different colors witch are more powerful than the normal orange like blue green purple and white.

Here is the reason why I believe fire is the best element. Fire destroys anything in its path. Fire can evaporate water with intensive training. Fire is also a form of explosion which causes earth users to be useless. Fire is also stronger than wind in general due to the chemical reaction in order for Fire to heat or burn it needs oxygen. Wind has the oxygen if there is a lot of that the fire will; be bigger and stronger which causes wind users to perish. Now, if this doesn't help, Fire is also a form of electricity. Electricity is OP it cannot be blown away, nor that it can be blocked it is invisible. Say for example a water user was fighting a Lightning user. The water user is dead, with one shot water will be electrocuted and anyone in it will die. Lightning can one shot any earth defenses or offences. Finally, wind users they cannot blow away electricity but it may oppose to it if they have the right moves. Still, lightning is shown to have immense power over the main elements. ...more

Fire is awesome because it is one of the most almost all the elements need to be moved except for wind and fire fire travel plans song and it is very destructive he’s like a double edge sword it cooks our food keeps us warm. But it can also be used as a weapon.

You guys think that water seriously? Can overpower fire how? It can easily vapouriser the water if it has enough heat fire is the strongest because it is the chemical reaction themselves it is combustion with that power you can burn anyone anywhere and even travel insane speeds even lightning is constant fire is unpredictable and the main reason it is so strong because heat
Heat is so op that just one word is enough blackhole to tell I mean yeah fire can't do that but fire can create a bomb with that much energy not even earth can stop it lightning can escape it and lastly you can't just remove oxygen from anywhere that defies the law of conservation of mass

3 Water

The most powerful element because water weakens fire, water uses water molecules in earth or turns it to mud and controls it that way, it uses water vapor in air to defeat air. If any fire fan wants to come at me with some proof that fire could win, my ears are open, I looked through the fire part, and obviously they should know that water boils in fire, it doesn't really evaporate, even if it did it could become vapor, use that vapor in oxygen, deprive the fire of oxygen, then there is no fire burning.

Water I would say is the most powerful element you could have as a power. There is so much more you could have that involves water. Communicate with with water related animals, control water, control people through the liquids in their body, control the clouds/weather, etc.
Water is more powerful then Fire cause it is its weakness. Air cause there are water molecules in air. Earth cause there are water molecules in the earth. Weather cause 90% of weather involves water like thunderstorms, rain, Tsunamis, Floods, Hurricanes.
Plus if you had water related powers than you could have the powers of Percy Jackson, Aquaman, Aqualad, and so many more.

Water is the best/most powerful element. Earth and fire, and air would not exist without it. Without water, earth and plants will die, resulting in herbivores not being able to eat. Without the plants, oxygen would not exist, because there is no plant, there is no process of photosynthesis. Without air, no flames will exist because oxygen would not exist, so there goes fire. Water can easily defeat every one of the main four elements. Simply, nothing would live if there was no water. Water is by far the best element.

Water is the best, as water can reside in all forms of matter. None other can. Water compared to Earth: Water beats Earth with eroision. Water compared to Fire: Water can put out the Fire. Water compared to Wind: This one is a bit iffy, but there are water molecules in the air, and water can turn into water vapor and cancel out the wind. In conclusion, water is the best.

4 Electricity

I think lightning is stronger than fire because that lightning is faster than fire so it can just go in 2 mili seconds. I think lightning is stronger than water because that water doesn't really do anything but make floods and you could easily strike it. and air? uhm I am pretty lightning is stronger than air I may be wrong.

One of the most powerful forces known to mankind hands down. Also the human nerve system runs on electrical impulses. Therefore you could make a person feel anything you want them to feel (such as pain, fear, anger, depression, etc), you could even mess with the information that their other senses are sending the brain such as making them see something that isn’t there or even making them blind. Also a non lethal shock to the brain will knock them out without even having to touch them (unless you want to kill them with a lethal shock to the brain or the heart) they could also be fried from the inside out or even killed by the simplest technique: throwing a frickin lightning bolt at them! Also the properties of lightning include super speed and an insanely powerful emp burst. Also with enough mastery over the powerful u could overload your muscles to essentially give you super strength along with super senses, and you could even control a person using the electrical impulses inside ...more

So electricity is the movement of electrons, yes? So let's assume that given the power of electricity you have the power to control electrons. Also, considering everything else, most elemental powers would be really bad unless you were immune to them, so let's assume that too. Now these are all the things you can do just by controlling electrons. 1. Electricity (duh, whether it's a simple shock or 1,000,000,000 volts from a lightning bolt, just zapping someone with this can kill them in less than a second, and it's not hard either. ) 2. Shockwaves and force blasts (the amount of force electricity has when it enters or exits something is powerful enough to literally knock you out of your shoes. Put this to some extent and you can knock your opponents far away. ) 3. Nuclear fission/explosion (now I haven't done all the science, but I'm pretty sure you can still create fission with an electron, but yeah. Just split an atom and watch the show, well actually, you would die too, it's more ...more

Lightning is the best to me because you can do so many things with it. And remember, at the right cercomstsnces, lightning can start fires too, though you won't be able the control it.

5 Earth

With earth you could literally control the whole planet. You could destroy it and everything on it as a result of that. With earth, you could basically control everything around you. Water wouldn't be able to do anything, because earth is sturdier and them planet is at your command, fire wouldn't either, because fire can be put out with earth, wind is powerful, but against earth there is not much it can do, and lightning is also a good power, but remember, with earth you could basically control planets

I think earth will be the best element because you can control sand ,stone ,metal, lava, mud, dirt, wood , and many more. You can even create earthquakes and erupting volcano's. And have you readers ever seen overhaul from my hero academia you could see him launching spikes out from the concrete floor and making huge amount of destruction. ICE is not powerful than EARTH because ICE is also a solid material and EARTH could easily control the ice and launch the ice right back to the enemy the enemy. EVEN FIRE is weaker than EARTH BECAUSE earth could easily block the attack with armor like metal and could turn his power into lava because LAVA is made out of solid materials and EARTH could create a sandstorm or tornado of sand and can create himself a weapon of any earth like material like a lava sword or even a giant hand like claw and even a god like giant titan. SO YEAH EARTH IS THE STRONGEST ELEMENT OUT THERE CASE CLOSED.

Earth is probably also a really good element, but in my eyes I only see exactly what it said. I can’t see more. There are so many opportunities in the other powers, but earth is just earth. You can evolve your power but earth is just earth and I think nature and earth is to close to each other to be different elements. But I would rather have nature as my element than earth.

Earth basically created every element therefore it only makes sense that it controls every element making it invincible.

6 Ice

Ice is by far one of the most powerful elements yet. If none of you guys have ever heard or played Mortal Kombat, you should and learn about Sub-Zero. Ice can not only freeze fire but can also find the air molecules that might be used against you by someone who controls air and freeze them, automatically taking air and fire off the chart for rivalries. Next is earth. If rocks or vines are thrown at you you can instantly freeze them and crush them with your mind. Next is lightning. Though lightning could easily crack through an ice block, you can use your abilities to freeze lightning in time to redirect it anyone/anything you want. Not to mention you can create sculptures, weapons, and even buildings with ice. And if you forgot, ice also leads to black ice. Black ice is practically an instant kill. You freeze something or someone and all you have to do is touch it to destroy anything inside of it. For example normal ice usage doesn’t destroy something once you break it after it was ...more

If you can control ice and frost, you can control; people, air, water, earth, and even time. Here's why; people; you can control people by freezing the 60% water that is in them(I'm saying them because I am not human). Air; you can control air due to the water molecules that float around in it, just make sure if you want to freeze a cloud into solid ice, make sure you're not beneath it. Water; ice is made of water, you can control ice and control where the water is going to go. You can also use the water to block oncoming fire and lightning attacks. Earth; if there is water in any cracks, you can use that water and expand it using your power, expanding the ground a certain amount can cause sinkholes, rockslides, and even earthquakes. Time; this one is going to take some "time" to explain(see what I did there? Jeez I hate myself). Anyways, you can control time if you can manage to get your ice down to or near absolute zero. Which stops the very atoms all around the planet, including ...more

Ice/Frost can do many things, You can manipulate water to turn into ice meaning that you can control water. This means that you can have ice anywhere on earth because there are water molecules in the air. Also if it is raining, you will have complete control over the entire area. Also with frost you could freeze people to death and/or create barriers to block attacks such as lightning and fire. Frost also means that it will be harder for anybody to hit you because you can either freeze the ground causing it to be a frozen floor or freeze them to slow them down and eventually kill them of hypothermia. If you could manipulate water that means that you can control human beings. Water molecules are inside our bodies, so if we can manipulate it, we can move it allowing us to control them. (Sorry about too much avatar references but it is true). And with Ice you could potentially fly because if you could control water, you could make ice particles around your body and move with the ice ...more

Scientifically ice is the strongest and I'll explain why. The power to create ice is actually the ability to remove energy from water atoms. Things don't get hot or cold it's actually heat. Heat is the transfer of energy through atoms and the faster atoms move the more heat they produce meaning it gets hotter. So the ability of ice is removing heat from water on an atomic level. Now here's the reason why ice is the strongest; anyone ever here of absolute zero? It's the stand still of atoms, when heat is no longer produced... At all. Now this is where things get tricky, because in order to get to absolute zero, you must break quantum physics, however if you were able to pull it off, by simply cooling water to absolute zero you could shatter a human body in an instant considering the body it's around 65% water. Potentially you could stop time with this ability considering that in order to have all the atoms at a stand still would require having every other atom in the world at a stand ...more

7 Dark

You can change into anything and be untouchable aka shadow mode and you can charge up for an extremely powerful attack called devils rage. you also can create a shield and protect your allies with this move called moonless vail and fire and lightning are your closest allies because light makes shadow and I think you know the rest PEACE PEEPS

You leave the world in complete darkness. Shadow Travel like Nico and summon ghosts. You could steal anything you want because you stay hidden in the shadows.

If you have the power shadow could you do almost everything while hiding. I personally think that when you have that you can turn yourself in to a shadow. Watch others (Not in a weird way) from there own shadows.

I really like this one, it's quite intriguing and you can do so much with it. You can make shadow creatures, hide in shadows, teleport through shadows... need I go on?

8 Life

The power to create anything and control the state between life and death literally puts you on par with a God. Forget natural elements like air/wind, water or fire, you could literally kill the person using said elements just by thinking it. You could create a more powerful duplicate of your enemy to fight for you. Or even a nuclear explosion that vaporizes ONLY your enemies and leaves everyone else untouched... A God is not to be underestimated... ever.

You ARE life right?
The wind/air is nature, water is nature, fire is nature, water is nature, earth is nature.
So basically almost every element is nature so therefore, nature is the most powerful one.

Nature is plants, animals and so much more! Since everything is natural... then you can control everything with this power! Therefore it's the best.

Okay, now having this element is kind of like being like god you can say. He created life and created people, animals, insects, creatures and more! This element will also probably allow you to have any elemental power. This element is really strong and powerful, you can control life, just think about that! You can make anything you want!

9 Time

Stopping time, speeding or slowing time and seeing the future. 1. Stopping time. You can stop time and move away if you're in danger. You can stop time and steal something, hurt someone... it's kinda crazy honestly. 2. You can make anyone die in an instant or skip through a boring lesson easily! 3. You could always see what was going to happen and pick out the best future for yourself. Honestly, the best and most OP power, except from space.

I think that time is very over powered because you can stop things from existing. It is also good when fighting because when freeze time you can hurt your opponent without them knowing. You would also be able to go back in time and get some old stuff and become rich. In addition time is everything because time plays a very important roles in our lives and without it nothing would be possible.

Time is...well, time is just broken, no two ways about it. If we're judging these powers based on fighting ability, than you have to realize that being able to react before your enemy is just busted, lol. Example! Ahem...How to Win a Fight when you can control time! Step 1: Stop Time. Step 2: Stab someone in the eye with literally anything! Step 3: Grab popcorn and then unfreeze time.

I know that was kinda graphic and cruel, but that's the really scary thing about time travel. Traceless crime. Stop time, rewinding either at will or upon death or something, traveling through, if someone has that ability and you don't, you lose. The only way you win is if they let you beat them, or they decide that killing you is either not worth the energy, or if they're a sadist, has gotten boring.

Time gives you so many opportunity's to fix something. You make a mistake, go back in time and fix it. You can even make other people travel through different time and dimensions, with some training

10 Energy

energy is Basically everything because when you move you have energy.
you could also use every power because he like fire users use fire the also make fire energy and powers have there owned energy, so you could control every power at your will

I actually created a character for my own liking who controls energy as an element. At first he is only able to control psi energy, but he is able to convert other types of energy into psi and manipulate them that way. But when he has a near-death experience in Limbo with Nature, he gets extra divine powers: now he can tap into the universe's limitless stores of cosmic energy, so he can generate force fields, levitate my altering gravitational potential energy, use telekinesis by altering kinetic energy, suck the chi out of others to kill them...he is basically overpowered! And I love the element of energy for that: because of its limitless possibilities. You can even absorb energy into your own body and become immortal!

Energy is basically everything. Space, time, aura, and so on. I think it's just a category/type of magic, which has many different ways your magic can develop.

And finally last. Energy! Energy is probably one of the strongest. Even tho it doesn’t sound like mush you would probably be able to destroy city’s with this power. Just saying-

The Contenders
11 Light

Light is my favorite! You can turn into light, travel at the speed of light, control and create light, can overpower darkness, and so much more!

Listen. This has to be the best. Light is a force. It is carried by a force carrier called a photon. This photon takes control in making electrostatics and magnetism and light. So you could manipulate these things. And also. Spirit is a lively and heavenly objective that can be used in many ways. Since light is involved, I'm assuming this is angelic powers. Angels have the power to protect one another and use light to keep away bad things. They can manipulate clouds and even emotions and dreams. So in this case Light/Spirit is the best.

If you had the powers of light, you could run at the speed of light. Light is also almost everywhere so it would be a good source of power and you could fight people without even being at their location if you knew where they were. A blast of light would travel extremely fast.

Spirit powers can be relatively simple and meek, but as it grows it can give extremely powerful wisdoms, and come on, spirit powers are always very beautiful and heavenly. They are extremely powerful. I think it should at least be in 8th or something

12 Gravity

More of a support role suspending enemies or objects in the air and being able to toss them or straight up crush them but it's like telekinesis but less powerful but still strong

In my opinion, gravity has to be one of the best. You can increase or decrease a person's weight, create black holes, and, because gravity can alter spacetime, you can speed up or slow down your enemies, or even yourself. You can also fly (technically). I suppose that would just be falling, just not downwards.

If you are a expert using this abiltity you can alter the weight of an object meaning you can control all of the solid material around including human then when you fight, the result is predictable bacause gravity is the key to make heavy or light in every circumtances. Tnx

You can control gravity. So you can fly. So it is kind of like the force. You can raise an enemy army over 100 feet and bring them crashing down.

13 Death

In my opinion, death goes both ways. So you not only can kill people by touching them but also bring people back from the dead. So you have control over life and death.

Honestly, any form of element manipulation is dangerous, just because you control fire doesn't mean you are immune to it, powers close to omnipotence are always too dangerous, you stop time and you basically stop air from flowing into your lungs, stop light from entering your eyes and electricity from running, you create a big black void and NOT expect to be sucked into it? Also, it would possibly be highly dependent on how far you can see. Lightning would be like detonating a huge bomb right beside you,loud enough to make you deaf, bright enough to blind you, and that's not even considering what is needed to cause lightning... I could go on like this for ages, but I advise you carefully consider science before using any superpower

You can bring people back from the dead or kill people my saying a incantation or by just touching them.

Death would be super cool because you can touch somebody and kill them if you want to

14 Space

Space = Time.

So then you could freeze time.


You could also have the power to manipulate space, supernovae, hypernovae, meteors, gravity, wormholes, black holes, white holes, energy, fire, water, earth, air etc.


everything in space is what you can control.


you could create nothing and destroy all atoms.

or you could create strange matter.



when I think of the best element I think of the best element in the long term, not just for fun, but you can do other stuff as well.

there is a known planet which is made out of water, except from its core. You could manipulate gravity and use that to your advantage.

You could teleport anywhere or turn invisible (by making the stuff you are made out of, more thinner). or fly (air).


think of every single thing in the known universe and you could use it to your advantage




Elements which might be ...more

You can control space objects and space events, probably the weakest thing space can do is to send a doomsday asteroid, comet or even a planet to collide to earth. Maybe you can control stars, black holes neutron stars and maybe galaxies. You can control events like supernova and even Gamma Ray bursts.

Telekinesis and Teleportation at once. You can create and manipulate vibrations to control earthquakes and sound. You can also change the light refraction and got invisibility and illusion powers.

In Elemental Battlegrounds(Roblox) Space is one of the most expensive and most powerful elements. You could summon black holes to pull people in it, or even possibly create Planetary Devastation(Naruto). The neutron punch could dislocate every limb of your opponent and send them flying. With space, you technically have the power of everything. Iike making your opponent vanish in thin air. :D

15 Sound

Sound is actually pretty cool! In psychics sound is a vibration through matter in the form of a sound wave. Sound can travel through air, water and solids. Ever feel the bass of loud music? That’s a sound wave traveling through you! And most of the jilting that happens in earthquakes is from a massive sound wave traveling through the earth!

Sound is also the key to communication. Speech is just a complex pattern of air pressure waves. So having sound as an ability you’d be able to distinguish multiple air pressure patterns in speech to understand and possibly mimic it to communicate back. Also in many animals they can growl at such low frequencies not as a warning but to instill fear in prey momentarily. There is a such thing as a sound wave that triggers the emotion of fear!

Sound can also be destructive. Throwback to how it can travel through land and is a vibration. Yeah we’ll rocket launch pads are flooded with water after launches not to subdue the flames and ...more

With sound you can go supersonic speeds, create shockwaves, make a room completely quiet, or make it possible for no one to hear you. You can also make deafening screeches or high frequency that will blown someone's head. You can use echolocation and communicate with animals.

Actually sound is absorbed by wind because sound travels through air.

Break eardrums disorientate and blast with sound pretty op

16 Magnetism

I think Magentism would be as amazing elemental power because you could control the magnetic field and control metal. It's like a mixture of Metal and Gravity.

Magneto power

A attract

17 Weather

I like this superpower because you basiclly use almost any earth,air,fire,ice,water.but some types are weak to others.and some are strong agianst others.

Thunder is already in sound / electricity. Sorry but thunder is only sound. Also note that thunder is the sound lightning makes. Completely in sound with electrical background

For me thunder is the superior form of lightning why because it can destroy such as country when it gain to much electrons.

Thunder is absorbed by lightning because they are both parts of a storm
