Top 10 Elemental Powers

The Top Ten

1 Air/wind

Air control is the most 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 ...more

To those of you who don't quite understand what "removing air" implies, or how it would be possible, imagine this. Someone who could control water could move it around, shape it to suit their needs, and so on. They could also, however, simply "remove" the water from an area, by moving it to a different location. This could be deadly if the water in a living organism were to be removed from the area, but that's not the point here. A similar thing could be done with earth, removing the earth from an area by relocating it, leaving a hole. Of course, in both cases, the area once filled with water or earth would quickly be replaced by air, since gases tend to flow from areas of low pressure to those of high pressure.

But let's say that someone who could control air were to do the same thing with air. Of course, removing the air from an area means that new air would try and flow in, but this person can control the air, so they could simply hold this new air back. ...more

There plenty of fictional characters who can live without air and this is all on your interpretation

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

2 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

In response to the first point, it sounds like lightning is the most powerful.

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

I love that fire can burn things and that it can spread it has beauty when it burns to, the smoke goes up so high it's so cool just to watch it up in the air. And if you were stranded or lost you could make a fire to keep warm and the smoke could be high in the sky so all you can do is hope someone sees it and rescues you

Fire is powerful because it is burning with heat, and once you can control heat, you can control temperature, and anything that has temperature, which is everything!

3 Lightning

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 an extremely strong element because if you focused fire to its maximum strength it would go to lightning. Lightning gives speed stamina and agility as well a faster healing. Also, you can power weapons (especially metal weapons) waking a great teammate for metal or you can also gain power from electronics and power lines.

Lightning is the strongest. It can manipulate the electrons in one's body and make you a god and make your enemies powerless. It is the weapon of the mighty Zeus and a divine symbol of the heavens

What can stop a lighting bolt if you can control the voltage. Water kills fire, besides I think a bolt of lightning can shoot through a barrier of wind

4 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 literally can just about become any element. You can hold the water molecules inside of the ground and move that around like earth. Or you can turn it solid by freezing it. You can even control the water in the air and basically do the exact same thing as air. All storms and most natural disasters involve water or can be created using water. Again if you have enough water control or people with water control you can just use the water in the ground to shift the ground itself. Basically you make an earthquake. Or you can even create a tsunami, rainstorm which can become a lightning storm with the right connections, tornado(water vapor in a circular motion), hurricane, and you can force a volcano to erupt by mixing the cold water with the magma and creating steam which will create too much pressure and then, BOOM. Another thing, what exactly are people mostly made of, WATER, control the water inside someone's body and basically force them to maybe attack themselves or their ...more

Water is an essential part of everything. Without water, air would be more restricted in its capabilities. Without water, the earth will not thrive and therefore wither because so. Fire cannot be doused without water, so there will be an ever-burning inferno if a fire gets out of hand. It possesses the ability to be used in all three states of matter and can be changed intermittently. Water is also always recycled, making water a rarer and more stable element. Water is in every living being and plant, so the ability to control water is like being able to control life and death. Disasters can also be caused by water. Water vapor is a greenhouse gas, which leads it to global warming. Tsunamis, floods, thunderstorms, rain, etc. are all caused by water.
Air: Water vapor literally controls the weather
Earth: Dampen the earth to make it hard to control or turn it into mud for water to be able to control
Fire: Pretty straightforward, able to douse a fire
Water is weak to light, ...more

Can control peoples bodies it just wins but being honest I think that it really depends on who takes the first hit

5 Ice/frost

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

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

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

If you control ice and frost then you can also control water, which, again, means that you can control temperature and everything that has a temperature, so that means everything!

6 Earth

Earth is a very peaceful and harmonic element which can give it the appearance of not being especially deadly but we live on this earth and many, many horrific disasters can be caused by it. Do not underestimate the earth element. Many have the earth element because they are down to earth, reserved, kind etc but earth is very dangerous a lot of horrible things that have happened to a loved one might be because of earth.

I like earth element because I think of it like nature, so you would be able to talk with animals and probably make earthquakes

You could use earth to create mountains or little bottled mixtures

Earth is amazing! You can create stone walls for blocking incoming attacks, cause ground-breaking earthquakes, and even control minerals. Since nature is apart of the earth, you can also control the trees, grass, and other nature elements. Crush your foes with this earth-shattering ( really meaning that) power and save the world ( or accidentally destroy everyone with one fatal blow.

7 Darkness/shadow

Darkness is my favourite power to have! This is a list of abilities you can use with darkness:
1. You can teleport in half a second!
2. You will be able to do dark matter attacks like blasts, beams and weapons.
3. You can create mini black holes or portals wherever you want!

tachyon a of ability the have and darkness into yourself turn to you allow would which light, then faster moves darkness cases some In

Darkness isn't really evil but the things that lurk inside of it and sometimes the things that lurk inside of it aren't evil.

I think darkness or shadow is the most powerful elemental power because you can kill someone with a twitch of a finger.

8 Magic

Magic is awesome because it opens up new possibilities and expands knowledge and power. It has endless boundaries and has a rhythm and flow to it that seems otherworldly.

Magic is a art form that would be element based but depending on the source magic could come at a price like blood magic is powerful but very dangerous as it is dark

Magic is powerful but magic can transform you to a better person me I em 9 me with power can bring good

This should be at the top of this list due to its ability to control every other power except divinity.

9 Time

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.

I honestly feel like time is the most overpowered from this list. If you can manipulate time to the fullest, no matter how weak you are, you can ALWAYS beat your opponent. Stop time, and obliterate your opponent. Also good for worldly things, like finishing an exam or something. Honestly, I feel like this should be first.

I love this element, you can pause, slow down or speed up anything! There's this time ability called time bubbles, it's where you make a giant orb of time energy and anything which is trapped in the bubble will pause or slow down!

Don't you just love the clicking on the your clocks? Time can be the fate of when you die. It can go forward and then be rewinded. I like clocks they are very powerful and there's a lot of movies about clocks. And I would love to mess with people with Time that would be nice.

10 Nuclear look at the top of the chart you might notice an argument for wind is that it can manipulate all the others, but nuclear is electromagnetic. Plus even a blast of UV light can kill someone, imagine the power of Chernobyl or a solar flare at your fingertips

Almost like Poison nuclear can burst out poison at will and also have side effects or chance of mutations.

Awesome although sends off radiation still destroys land

You can just explode everything.

The Contenders

11 Temperature
12 Void

I really wish I had this power, I can possess anything, I can teleport stuff to the abyss/void/unknown, I love those abilities!

just really powerful become the void or something and choke them or go into their soul

Void is not only space and time, but is also nothingness. Space and time are powerful enough, but with the addition of nothingness, it literally cancels out all other elements, with the exception of Creation. Make a loud room silent, repel the very air we breathe...endless possibilities. This is without mentioning space and time, both. Portals and teleportation, not to mention stopping time.
The only downside is if Void were to go against Creation, but even then Void would have space and time.

When people die, their souls go to the underworld. This is under normal circumstances. However, with Void, their souls would cease to exist.

If nothing else, said "nothingness" can be drawn from the infinite nothingness in between the planets and space.

Void is the king. Enough said.

This would be good because you could make anything disappear

13 Nature/life

You may think that nature is just plants and animals but here is the facts: Beside the obvious control over plant-life and similar material, Nature also includes air and sky-related aspects such as the wind, electricity, and a substantial portion of weather-related factors.

Life is an unequalled force because nothing has power over it, least of all living things like humans. Humans only know how to destroy life but they do not know how the infinitely complex structuring that allows life to form works.

You can make things grow. You can make a seed grow into a tree in seconds.

Nature covers the entire planet and it is all living. Imagine if all the trees were Rexes, we would all die.

14 Gold/Wealth

Gold is cool because you could be rich with it. I'm not saying gold is the strongest or most powerful but the hardest. Gold is a very hard thing.

But would it be like your minds or Pluto God of wealth

Get all the money you want with this power. You can be rich!


15 Creativity

Whatever you think of is your power limits.

For example:

Fate: your can do the first strike.

Luck: the moment you have this ability is the moment you are invincible.

Space: everything in space is what you can control.

Time: freeze your opponents.

Gravity: turn your opponents upside down and confused.

And so on...


So what you know is your limits.

Its power can create any of the elements, by drawing, and thinking about them

You can make the infinity gauntlet twice and kill all of man kind

With creativity, your dreams will be more vivid and you have the power to shape worlds that come out of your imagination. You can influence what people think and what they do – fictional people and real people – if you use your creativity and words well.

16 Lava

Lava is by far one of the strongest on this list, you can simply create a fortress around your self, the perfect combo of offense and defense

I think Lava is pretty powerful cause like you could destroy something in seconds

I am sorry but lava has a meaning also like lava girl remember that well lava is the most powerful element of all because, you can kill people anytime when you are being harmed, which is why it is very important on life also that it has said that lava can create earth which can create another land on it's own powers which you can do, so please everyone I rest my case but lava is the far most element which also goes with fire so yeah thank you.

Lava would be a powerful sub element for earth as it can not only create lava pools and shoot lava, but you can also collapse buildings, burn down wooden structures, create lava disks, and if you can bend metal, you can melt the metal supports and vehicles. So basically it's the most powerful sub technique of earth.

17 Creation/Life

Both creation and life are very important. Creation comes under all sorts of categories. You can even create a whole new planet, colour or even ice-cream if you wanted and life is everything too. This is very vital. Having this element is basically being God. You are everything, you control everything like all those evil masterminds always want to do in

It's really powerful because you can create any of the elements, its creation, it can even create things to distroy

You can create anything and absorb every element ! come on I got to get this

Since you can create a wall in front of you and make then run into that wall (Creation)

18 Telekinesis/Mind Control

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!

Telekinesis is amazing because you can pick something up like paint and prank someone so easily

Very good,You can use it in class. You read the teacher's mind then write the answer she has in their mind

This is cool ‘cause you can convince people to do stuff like give you money

19 Dreams

Dreams are powerful because they show us possibilities that we could never think of while we are awake. They open gateways to new worlds and show us things that we didn't even realise we wanted.

immortality yourself give always can you then world dream a like you around space the manipulate can you if and stuff scary some with up come can psych human The this. doing while awake be can I imagine would I

It would be really helpful trust me I travled INTO MY CRUSHES DREAM

I think dreams is mine because dreams you can control people turn from fantasy to real

20 Light/spirit

Blinding enemies and cause Hallucinations invisibility at the cost of your sight cause you'd have to bend light around you blocking light from teaching your eyes and cause people to see stuff that's not there and stuff

Light shows the purity of life and an unquenchable force that the darkest evil can never outshine.

If somebody controls light then they can tell an angel to chill and be friends

Ok so with light basically you can control the sun, angels and stuff it tied with darkness basically, and if you wanna fuse do Light and Wind.Creating Sprit

21 Spirit

For me this sounds Cool cause you could apear in their dreams so this sounds super awesome

Spirit is very cool you could go wherever you would like in seconds and watch peoples lives (not to be creepy). You could appear in peoples dreams have a nice talk and then leave whenever you like. I also think I have spirits following me so I could do the same and protect the poor or abused! c:

I voted for spirit cause its basically the opposite of void I voted for void to because not to be rude but you can destroy anything you can to in spirit but spirit is strong cause of flightmand going invisible and taking control of someone by going into there body riping there soul out and takeing over the brain

You can raise the dead. They will do anything you want them to do. They will worship you like a king/queen

22 Crystal

Me and my cousin created this power called gems. Pretty much you have access to any power but you have to create gems with it. This reminds me of crystal however accessing this power you would have the ability to create crystals with other powers held in them such as a water crystal or a fire crystal.

Crystals seem to hold the essence of light and purity. They glow with the light of wishes and are stronger than iron.

Crystals could contain life force and other elements which could make the user very powerful

This is the most helpful app for me because, I'm doing this for homework that I made for my sister. But she wanted it to be a teamwork project. So I did it. She made me one two it is about, drawing. It's to help me draw. Because I want you make a drawing of my teachers face for the last day of school.

23 Speed

its like having two powers time and speed if you go really fast then well to you time will slow down when really you are going really fast

Go almost anywhere a human can walk! You can steal a lot of stuff if you need it.

Also like Quicksilver and flash they can run for miles

Like Hermes/Mercury in Greek/Roman Mythology

24 Energy

well energy can use fire and fire is a type of energy so really energy is stronger than fire and air

With energy you have the ability to create and take away life

Since you could use other elements with this element and break stuff easily

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!

25 Space

If you can control space you can just make a space sword and obliterate somebody

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.
