Top 10 Elemental Powers

The Top Ten
1 Air Air

Air control is the strongest element there is. Just use the air and push with G-force to basically be able to use other elements. Think on that for a second. You can send other solids and liquids. You can blast your own rocks. You can shoot liquids and make it precise by cutting down the air. It's basically turning all the other major elements into subcategories with air controlling it. You can make some powerful combinations, too, such as making a bright spark of light from a small explosion and clapping to control sound to make your own concussion blasts. Think offensively this is just powerful? You can use the air to cushion around yourself so the g force of anything is redirected. Ground attacks won't work since you can simply fly over it. Solids and liquids- once again- can be redirected. Thunder can be insulated. You want light and darkness control? Change up the ozone layer. Fire can't work without oxygen, and thus, you can remove it. Light and darkness don't really have much ...more

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.

"Air can be a lot of things if you think about it, storm, lightning, electricity. You can fly, or at least hop in the air. Air is a really underestimated element, but I feel it is the most powerful out there.

Air is a pretty top tier power. A lot of people below me are commenting "removing oxygen" or some variant of that but what people don't understand is that you don't even have to do something that complex. Just push someone, really hard, either away from you or straight up. The human body is quite fragile and can only handle so many G-Forces, so if you push an enemy hard enough they WILL die, not from being ripped up or anything, blood simple won't be able to get to the heart or brain because of the pressure. Hmm..."What about up" you say? Simple. Either A: You fling them into outer space, or B: They don't reach escape speed, and fall to the earth, either suffocating during the fall (again pressure), being ripped up, or hitting the ground. Take your pick.

2 Fire Fire

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

I think fire is not the strongest. WAIT WAIT WAIT! Don't kill me, let me explain it. Fire may not be the strongest because it can't adapt with oxygen loss and you can easily put it out with both water and earth. But let me tell you something. Tsunami and earthquake both are very dangerous disaster, and so is hurricane. But we don't even know that fire is our most common element that can kill people in even a small amount. Can you be killed by your friend who is spraying water on you or wind which we need to breath with? Or even we walk on earth. I'm talking about the small amount people, not the disaster type. Yes, Forest fire can also wipe out many animals even kill endangered species, so don't underestimate elements people! Because the small fire that looks cute in front of you can kill you anytime!

I believe that fire is the strongest in my opinion. In basic knowledge though it all just depends on what the person/thing can do with it. For example most people might think that someone who holds fire just throw fire balls but their are many other things you can do with fire. A person with enough skill could even turn the fire into a substance that can go through something or they can make wing out of fire and fly. Even though I believe that fire is stronger there is no really logical answer on which element is stronger unless you give examples on what each element can do.

This element can counter some elements, and is built for FIRE - power. this is by far one of the strongest as in attacking on the list

3 Water Water

Water is basically the fundamental structure of ice/frost so this should be in 3rd place. Water can do all sorts of things. Since there is water inside our bodies, we can manipulate the water inside other people and potentially control them live slaves and kill them at any time. Water if frozen can create dangerous weapons and can do other hazardous things as well. If you were to freeze somebody they would start slowing down and eventually die of hypothermia. And/or you could solidify them into place by creating ice shards around them making it impossible to move around. If you were fighting against a person with an elemental power we would win. We could block lightning with a solid ice structure. We could counteract fire. We could use water molecules in a rainstorm to kill air. And we could freeze the ground causing earth to be useless. And with water we could make mist which will hide our presence. And we could use water dummy's, for instance, since water can reflect out images, we ...more

Water can have so many benefits simply because it can be everywhere.
I think water and air could be a tie. There is water vapor in oxygen and there is oxygen in water. If someone with powers of air went against someone who could control water, the winner would be winning based on skill instead of their power.

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.

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.

4 Earth 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 read the wind/air comments...EARTH IS USEFUL sure you have the ability to fly in the air cause your a wind/air elemental but earth can use sand from the ground to the way up so can make sand fists and punch the living heck out of people. Anyways, I LOVE EARTH there are so much possibilities you could do with this elemental power, like when you create a rock barrier from the ground to defend yourself but after you defend yourself smash the rock barrier so then it will create shards that will fly at your opponents!

Earth is a powerful and peaceful element. Earth is gentle and filled with life and is equally dangerous to Air but more power.

It's Earth! Honestly you can just crush the whole planet killing everything and essentially doing a better job than any overlord or evil being in movies T.V. shows and anime you control the earth itself just make it crumble to dust so no one will have anywhere to go since everything will be erased honestly this is the strongest power in terms of destruction. After all it's a simple thought and everything is gone in a Matter of seconds!

5 Electricity Electricity

Lightning is such a freaking awesome element and needs more attention.
Lightning creates distanced fighting to help you fight far away from your enemy, Lightning is also so unique and powerful creating destructive and dangerous shock waves, Electricity blasts and much more which can burn you to pieces if struck by it. It is also much more powerful than many elements and can shock and mess with people's minds Also, Water is weak against lightning and is so powerful and destructive.
Lightning is the most powerful and underrated element that needs to be at the top!

Literally unstoppable. Its invisible, it has firepower, it can cause explosions knocking down earth, and we all know what happens when lightning and water make contact. Electricity is one of the best elements there is.

Assume lightning is the power to harness electricity, or to manipulate electrons, electricity, and lightning itself. Lightning is a force that unlike all other basic elements: fire, water, earth, even air or nature, cannot be thwarted. Fire is an unpredictable element, but still weak, to all others´┐Ż"even air, which is intended to power it, can extinguish fire. Water is versatile, but that does not mean it isn't just as easily stopped. And air is supposedly the strongest element, and yet to become so, the wielder would need to be the most powerful in the universe. It is an invincible force wielding unimaginably dangerous power. Electricity in the smallest amounts can pass a current so powerful it can be commonly associated with death. Lightning itself can contain 1,000,000,000 V of electricity. Air may gather resistance, but air resistance can be easily disregarded by this element. Even more resistance to the point of humans falling like slips of paper would do nothing. The ...more

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

6 Ice Ice

It is born of the element of water. Freezing the world around us forming crystals and raining down snowflakes. It's not only magical but also beautiful which is why ice should be in the top 5 because it is stronger than electricity which can only shock when exposed to water but ice can be formed through particles freezing in the air which causes icicles and snowflakes. I hear by rest my case that is ice is not only gorgeous but it is also a season which we must recognize.

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

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

7 Dark Dark

Dark is not only my favorite element, but extremely powerful. You can teleport, turn invisible, control shadows, make it dark out, and even make it so hard to see people are practically blind but you have night vision because you have Darkness.

Darkness is the most powerful. You can escape guards my turning yourself into a shadow. You can create life forms and other living things like a shadow wolf, dragon, etc. You can easily steal or break in the most secured place in the world. You can even see the secret recipe in Coca-Cola unnoticed. You can manipulate black holes, create dark matter and energy, that means you can manipulate space and even time. The only thing faster than light is darkness. It is existent, but also non-existent. So practically it is very hard to kill. You can create anything with shadow powers, even extra lives!

Darkness should be, by far the strongest. Due to the endless amount of supply one could use to fuel their abilities, whether it be the physical absence of light or someone's shadow, or even drawing upon the vast darkness that occupies the area between planets. And if one is able to control darkness, it would be able to ignore the limitations, weaknesses, and strengths, since it isn't a "normal" element of nature, rather the embodiment of nature's destructive side.

I'm sorry, but darkness is the best by far (my opinion only); you can see in the dark, become invisible, teleport to other shadows and manipulate shadows. Say if you were trying to get into a big warehouse, and there were guards everywhere. Make their shadows rise up, become spears and kill their owners. Then, to avoid the cameras, you teleport past or just go invisible and walk. It's extremely effective simply because there is so much darkness everywhere.

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.

The nature/life element is very important as we practically live off of it. Nature provides us with oxygen, beauty, resources whereas life provides us to live, it's our souls, our personalities. Both combined into one element is risky and comes with lots of responsibility. This element is very vital as it's practically everywhere, everything and everyone. This is perhaps one of the most dangerously powerful elements to own.

Nature is basically all elements everyone, fire, heat, sun, water, everything, there's no arguing, nature is the essence of all elements, even darkness and light, thus creating twilight. This is the most powerful element, not air, not water, not earth, not fire either, nature, it's a part of everything, it can beat all the other elements because IT IS them.

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

Time is extroardinary because if for example, someone punches you. Reverse time, counter, and beat the heck out of them. Or if you have a test. Stop time, look up answers, resume, Easy 100%. Being able to slow time is just plain cool, and you have super speed and can teleport.

Super convinient! Freezing time would so useful! If you are late work or wanna sleep longer, just stop time.
If you are asked a question you don't know the answer too, just stop time and look it up.
Then going back in time, in case you failed a test, you could just go back and try again. If you are in a horrible accident or a loved one is, just turn back time.

To control time, that is to control everything!

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.

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.

10 Energy Energy

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 could start fires & redirect ice, wind AND earth. You'd never run out of stamina & you could control lighting. You could even kill someone by taking away their energy, or bring them back to life, by giving them energy. You'd also be able to control a person, by controlling the atoms in their body. And I'm only naming some of the things you could do with energy. Overall, there's no question that energy is the most powerful element

Energy is the best 'because energy can neither be created or destroyed, it can only be transferred. So while you can't create it, you can still take it from somewhere else and if you shoot an energy ball at someone, there's nothing they can do about it.

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.

The Contenders
11 Light

Light has many different prosperities that can be abused. Scientifically speaking you can manipulate part of the electromagnetic spectrum, which means several things like manipulating radio waves (you can listen into people who use devices that taps in to this); blinding people; starting something on fire; fly; move at the speed of light; and if you could "harden" light - like what Green Lantern does - you'd have an arsenal of kinetic weapons/armor you could summon at will. But let's be real here: blinding people pretty much screws over a great deal of people who still require eyesight in order to use their abilities effectively, and is probably the most effective if also the most crude usage of this ability.

On a fantasy note it's the obvious counter to darkness-based abilities. Also, fire users are screwed against you since you can manipulate their own power if they try to start you or something else on fire due to how photons work.

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 Telekinesis/Mind Control Telekinesis/Mind Control

This really sounds like a cool element, I would have this because you can literally bring stuff from a far distance with your MIND. You also can control people and make them do weird stuff for either payback or as a prank. This element takes a lot of skill and practice and it takes a long time to get the hang of. I would also know the answers to every test question just from reading a teachers mind :). If it was anything I would have this element! But, if it was between 100 trillion dollars then no I'd pick 100 trillion dollars. I LIKE DAT MORE!

I can feel the flow from this power. X-men inspired me to dick a little deeper down into this power. Wauw! That's an amazing power! The way Charles Xavier, from the movie
X-men, works with his power is unbelievable! I love the way the power is so powerful, but! I don't believe it's the strongest.

Having this skill could be a miracle! You could make people do what you want and if you had the gut even kill could see there thoughts if you were well trained,you could even see where they live and see what they live through at home you could see that there getting abused or having a bad life you could use this skill to make a person's life better!

What if you could control objects without even touching them? Or read someone's mind? You could carry a person if you were strong enough without even touching them. Or read their mind and see what they're thinking about! I think this is an amazing power!

13 Gravity

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.

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.

Gravity manipulation would be an extremely useful superpower, in both combat, and everyday life.

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

14 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

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.

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

Good to see none of us want to kill people. This is last place.

15 Space

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.

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

Space can overcome anything. It can control the night and stars. Fight your own enemies. Be a free spirit with rocking' outfits. You can teleports anywhere and do whatever you wish because everyone and everything has a little bit of darkness in it.

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.

16 Sound

I do say sound is not the strongest power. But try to think how powerful is sound. because of loud noise then Lighting and energy. There are four skills that can be powerful are

1 Low sound assault - The user create a powerful Low sound in The user hands the hitbox are small but powerful.
Damage ranking B+

2 Sound performance - The user release a Air blast with loud noise Attack it have good hitbox with good damage.
Damage ranking B+

3 Roar - The user shout with a loud lion's sound with can make a ears bleeding not a user but someone else.
Damage ranking A+

4 Firework Star - The user release a fireworks at the hand and blowing with MASSIVE noise with high damage.
Damage rank A+

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 heat ...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.

17 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.

Evangeline Samos is all I have to say. If you don't know who she is please read Red Queen or look her up.

18 Shadow Magic
19 Aether
20 Weather

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.

Lightning, Air, Water, Ice, no matter what element, all of the ones that can be weather you can control.

This is the best element if in this world if we all have element power.
