With so many characters that have powers, it's almost impossible to have a power that isn't being used by a lot of other characters. What do you do to make your character special?

@Cassidy: Think outside the box. Don't use anything elemental, demonic al, etc.

Surely you have more advice than that, you're probably the most original RPGer on the site when it comes to powers! 
 
I came up with Eclipse's ability to control the fundamental forces of nature while in a boring Physics lesson, 'learning' about the four fundamental forces while actually thinking "Dude, would be cool if a superhero could do this stuff..." ^__^

Ask Cluthc/Akira. Not kidding, he can come up with powers that no one else has and still put them to good use. For example: Ever heard of "Egokinesis"? No, Clutch even has it in his powerset.

Okay, fine :p 
 
First, think of ideas. Toss away the first five or so that come to you, they probably won't be much good. Then, perhaps consider some source that you find interesting (personally I tend to use books, but movies or TV works as well). Take some aspect that you find particularly interesting, and try to turn it into a power. For example, with Portrait I combined elements of The Picture of Dorian Gray and the Cthulhu Cycle. My failed character Homunculus (actually it was a fine character, it just freaked me out) was based on Bill from the book Dr. Bloodmoney. Sometimes it helps to work backwards. Pick an avatar or a character you like. Think about what powers they could have in a  'What if' or 'Elseworlds.' The characters of Fractal and Starheart were both conceived in this way.

What he calls Egokinesis, is actually Gyrokinesis....I don't know where the other name came from...also...Cassidy, your powers are what you make them...When I got here, no one was using Hydrokinesis, or Cryonkinesis...and I thought I would make everyone see how powerful it really could be...and now there are at least three others I can think of that use the same powers... 
 
But enough about me...I would't say don't use Elemental or Force powers, because they can be very unique...For instance, Pyrokinesis, fire control, is very common among characters period, but if you turn pyrokinsis into, Flaming Fingernails, then you have become unique. Or you could go into the sub sects of them and use Halokinesis- sand and small sediment controll (includes glass), or Biokinsis- controling life... 
 
But, like I've said before, your powers are unique...Taking emotions and turning them into strength and invulnerablity is unique

The correct answer is..You can't.You know how many RPG's have been done.How many people were here before you? Someone is going to make up some powers,people are going bite and the cycle will continue.This is why Marvel and DC have some many similar characters.Everything has already been done.There is really now way to be original.You can put an original spin on something that was already done but you will never be 100% original.

@Slight: Well, I posted a valid thing. I'll quote myself to prove it: 

Okay, fine :p  First, think of ideas. Toss away the first five or so that come to you, they probably won't be much good. Then, perhaps consider some source that you find interesting (personally I tend to use books, but movies or TV works as well). Take some aspect that you find particularly interesting, and try to turn it into a power. For example, with Portrait I combined elements of The Picture of Dorian Gray and the Cthulhu Cycle. My failed character Homunculus (actually it was a fine character, it just freaked me out) was based on Bill from the book Dr. Bloodmoney. Sometimes it helps to work backwards. Pick an avatar or a character you like. Think about what powers they could have in a  'What if' or 'Elseworlds.' The characters of Fractal and Starheart were both conceived in this way. "

Nah,Gyrokinesis is 
is the ability to mentally manipulate gravity, allowing one to increase or decrease the effects of it around any desired area, to make objects extremely lighter, heavier or to even crush things by compressing them with intense gravity. One this ability can even shift his center of gravity and defy it, by walking up walls, jumping up to extreme heights, gravitating objects and subjects to/away from him and the like

@Slight: Egokinesis has nothing to do with movement at all, it is the conscious control over every muscle and body function. Gyrokinesis would be the power to control your movement and possibly others in strange ways like going up walls, speeding up/down, stuff like that (at least from the literal meaning)

Yes...I just googled it...LOL...I was confused for a bit, but I still think it falls under the text of Biokinesis...I think it's a sub-kinetic ability though....

Or you could go into the sub sects of them and use Halokinesis- sand and small sediment controll (includes glass), or Biokinsis- controling life...  But, like I've said before, your powers are unique...Taking emotions and turning them into strength and invulnerablity is unique "
Nah,Gyrokinesis is 
is the ability to mentally manipulate gravity, allowing one to increase or decrease the effects of it around any desired area, to make objects extremely lighter, heavier or to even crush things by compressing them with intense gravity. One this ability can even shift his center of gravity and defy it, by walking up walls, jumping up to extreme heights, gravitating objects and subjects to/away from him and the like "
No...thats Gravikinesis...Gyro=movement, as in Gyration.... "
I don't think you know what Egokinesis is cause we are talking about two different powers. "

Fair enough, I just revisited your page...But, I think that would still fall under Biokinesis-control over life...plant life included...that is if you have that ability...Biokinsis, is like what Elixir could do...

Do powers really need to be non-cliché for your character to be good? i don't  think so. If you can get the reason/whatabouts from your powers origin, maybe in which special way you use it, or however else versatile you can be, i think you can do pretty good, be different, and still a bit Cliché.

@Slight: Yup, it is a sub-ppower but Clutch is only limited to himself thus it is legal to call it egokinesis (and it's a cool sounding name too)
