Monster summoning. Maybe you might not consider it a power, but I do.

@MasterofChaos: That's actually quite fun. Just made one recently myself. The challenge of the character is going to be.. exciting.

@.Longshot.: Head trauma does that quite well, too.

Hydrokinesis seems to be a rare one, as well. Least I haven't seen anyone using it.

I've seen a lot of people use that (myself included), just not a lot at the moment.

I used to use hydrokinesis all the time. I would say a power that is usefull, and underused is geokinetics or maybe even empathy

Angelic abilities in general. Alot of people go the gothic demon angle but a rare few try and pull off being the epitome of altruism. Alot of sub abilities that could go with that

To me shrinking is the equivalent of making the enemies you face into giants so by itself I think it is overrated except for stealth missions.

On topic. Flight: it's not so much underrated but it is very seldom utilized to its potential in combat.

Were talking about how many people use the power on the vine RPG forum. A whole lot of people here use flight, including in combat.

True, but I think he means Flight is underrated. I mean if you could fly that would bring alot of questions with awesome answers to explore, expecially if it was the one thing you focused on.

@ArtairSinclaire: Cool. I slowed myself at a third to not spread my pov too thin, don't know how you do it with 25.

Ah. Didn't notice that it was an RPG forum. I just assumed it was a "battle" because of the thread name. Still, Underrated and how many people use a power are two different things and it still could not be used to it's potential by some rpgers.

No time manipulation, It's manipulation of his own PERCEPTION Of time. Nothing ACTUALLY Slows down, It's just his perception of it increases.
