    Default Nen abilities creation thread

    Let the fans get creative!

    I'll start:

    Name: (none yet, it's influenced by living a certain way though)
    Type: Reinforcement

    Basically the ability has three parts:

    Aggression phase:
    when meat is consumed the strength of nen increases. the longer the user stays without meat, the stronger the nen becomes. The duration of increased nen is dependent on the amount of meat consumed and the duration that meat hasn't been eaten.

    Meditative phase:
    after a period of 30 days without consuming meat, the user will forcefully enter zetsu for 24 hours. During this period the user may experience symptoms of withdrawal from the enhanced nen. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, chills. The stronger the nen has been enhanced, the the stronger the withdrawals become (may include extremely vivid dreams, hallucinations and temporary break down of ordinary reality). Once the user has entered meditative phase, it cannot be cancelled (note: this is different from regular zetsu).

    Bliss phase:
    After 24 hours of zetsu, the user's nen becomes more calm and stable. regenerative/recuperative/healing abilities are enhanced during this phase. Staying in zetsu during bliss phase will increase the amount of enhancement the nen will receive on aggression phase.


    notes:

    *The user can enter bliss phase (from aggression phase) without having to wait for 30 days simply by entering meditative phase (24 hours of enforced zetsu, cannot be cancelled)

    *The user experiences withdrawals every time he/she transitions from aggression phase to meditative phase

    *Meat can be consumed continuously the whole day to slightly strengthen the nen (though the enhancement will be minimal since the strength of the nen is dependent on the time spent without meat and amount consumed) maximum amount that can be consumed is until one get's a full stomach (beyond that makes little difference, just a bad tummy)

    *The quality of meat consumed also contributes to the strength of enhancement. (e.g. consuming a nen user's flesh will give a tremendously greater boost)

    *The only way to enter aggression phase is through consuming meat, The only way to enter bliss phase is by entering meditative phase.

    *Accidentally consuming meat still counts as consuming meat, there's no excuse. (can potentially ruin years worth of charge time)

    *An amazingly strong nen can be accessed by spending zetsu on Bliss phase for a VERY LONG AMOUNT OF TIME (decades) and consuming high quality meat (like Meruem's)

    Alright I am not sure whether I understood the ability or not... But from what I understood it sounds awesome and the limitations make it stragetically exciting...

    The question I would like to ask is about Aggression phase. Basically the strength of nen is decided by two variables... the amount of meat you consume at first, and then the amount of time you spend without eating meat after the first meat based meal? And you are basically allowed to fight and activate your nen reinforcement throughout those 30 days (or whenever you decide to enter meditative phase) until you are forced into Zetsu state. And throughout those 30 or whatever days, your nen will increase in strength?

    Ok i think i have at least the basics down ... I really like it actually, you must really love meat right? hehe

    See I'm very interested in espionage and I enjoy learning about the predatory nature of certain animals and stuff. As a person I am uninterested in direct conflict, but I have been raised to know when to defend myself. And I study the concept of peacekeeping and democracy.

    So my character would be a Hunter, with contractors ranging from peacekeeping organisations, like the UN (that influence the state of peace in the world of the people who aren't nen users), or even alliances like NATO (which could help take down a genocidal dictator or something like that). I would be contracted to get information.

    According to Hisoka's theory of personality, I lean more towards a Specialist than anything. Which helps because it makes my nen ability more flexible.

    Anyways,

    Nen Abilities:

    Wild Stalk: The user assumes the qualities, form and image of a stalking Cheetah, making use of the surroundings and nature in order to catch the prey. In this state, anything that helps conceal the pursuer is in motion. Full camouflage, stealth walk, In, etc.

    Cheetah's Breath: The user transmutes a cheetah assuming its position as it stalks its prey. The user sends the nen cheetah charging at the target. The connection of the Cheetah with the victim, once it is emitted, would mean the immediate release of a large amount of life force (Nen) leaving him defenceless and submissive to questioning. The target would have no recollection of the investigative event.

    Vows and Limitations:
    1 - The user can only emit the cheetah once he gets him/herself within 10 metres of the target.
    2 - He/she must also be 100% undetected by the target, or by anyone who might be a witness.
    3 - The questions asked must be related to a contract that is pre-determined by the user and a witness. So it could be a hunter contract or even an amateur contract with a friend or colleague. Any question unrelated to the contract would mean instant death.
    4 - The extent of the victims submission to questioning is decided by the importance of the contract according to the subconscious of the user (so basically the more personal it is, the more important), balanced against the will power of the target. The ratio would be 2:1. For example, if the importance was not sufficient and the will power was high, the questioning would be futile in the sense that the more pertinent information would be protected, but any minor clues would still be given away. If both variables are high, the User is triumphant in obtaining 2 valuable pieces of information. And finally, if the importance was high and the will power was low, any questioning would be answered.
    5 - Attempting to kill the target while in the state of manipulation would also mean instant death.
    6 - Should the information not be enough to complete the contract, it is possible to send a second Cheetah Breath in order pressure the victim mentally and fade their will power. However should this fail, the user will lose one of his 5 senses depending on the most valued sense of the victim. Should he lose 2 of his senses from this condition, on the third, the user will die (like baseball).
    7 - The user is also prohibited from using physical torture throughout the rest of his life by penalty of death.

    Combat Nen Ability:

    Wild Avenger: This ability is basically the same as Wild Stalk, however an offensive mode. It would be used for assassinations or just general combat. Since it is an offensive version, In is not a natural part of this ability. The condition that surrounds this nen ability is that its effectiveness in battle is determined by the amount of people the opponent has killed. So its basically useless against Leorio, but stronger against Franklin. I stress that for the ability to be at its best, the opponent must have a kill count in the thousands. So even against Killua (who I'm assuming will have a kill count in about the 100 mark), this ability will not be a big deal. However, kills that are affected indirectly by a certain person will be counted for them too. For example, since Chrollo was the leader of the Spiders, all of the kills from the Spiders are counted for him. So the nen abilities condition brings the attacker closer to the level of Franklin, but will give the user a strength advantage over Chrollo.

    Black Blotted Blitz: The User Transmutes Cheetah's as the object of his/her attack. Emitting them if necessary in the heat of battle. The strength of this ability is determined by the users level of proficiency using nen.

    Vows and Limitations:
    1 - In order to use this nen ability, there must be some statement of intent from the enemy. The User must genuinely feel threatened.This means that the oponent must be charging to attack, state his will to fight, threatening to harm someone of personal importance, or something of the sort.
    2 - Should this nen ability be used against a non-hostile or innocent being, the nen Cheetah's will turn on the User and hold him/her down to the mercy of the victim.

    I know there are quite a few abilities and the common nen user tends not to have this many... but I figured that the qualities of each of these abilities are similar. Like Wild Stalk and Wild Avenger are the same move, just with different motives. I also don't think it's overpowered because there will be only a handful of people in the world who will have the same sort of kill count as Chrollo. Overall, this character is basically made for situations like the Libyan and Syrian civil wars.

    Forgive me if this one does not seem so professional. I took a quiz the other day and found I was a conjurer.

    Name: The black whip

    Effect: A dark vine-like whip is conjured to the user. The whip when contacting someone can divide into roots that dig into their body and drain all their blood killing them. It can also leave a seed in the persons body that can be activated within 24 hours to cause them to burst open as the seed sprouts, creating a giant blood red flower. Spores are let off from the blooming flower that have a similar effect. Miniature flowers can be sprouted from the whip itself to let off spores. The whip can also sprout thorns that can seep a sleeping drug. The whip absolutely cannot come in contact with pure water, rain water, or sea water. If it does the user is forced into zetsu for 24 hours.

    I figured that I'd use it in conjunction with a cloning ability like the one that guy who fought Hisoka in heavens arena had.

    No dude it looks good. hehe i made it overly professional because im desperate to create a fan fiction manga in the hunter x hunter world but i cant draw :P. Anyways I like your technique. Is it inspired by Kurama from YuYu Hakusho? Its good because its a powerful technique, but dangerous because a simple unlucky streak in a rain day could foil your chances. What did you think of my abilities?

    actually i'm a vegetarian! hahahaha. i just thought of something that has strict conditions (for stronger power) that would fit with my lifestyle, and i tried to push it as far as possible to get more power but at the same time keep some balance.

    also, this ability was inspired from drug consumption and withdrawals. You get a temporary boost upon consumption and tolerance increases with frequent use (and decreases if not used for a long time) you get withdrawals if you don't have it for a while, and it takes a long while to clean your system. once you are clean and your tolerance is down to zero, you can get the full effects of the substance again.

    hmmmm i dont really see which nen type this fits in. Specialization is a nen ability that doesn't quite fit in the other categories, but these ones are: Wild stalk doesn't seem like a nen ability but more of a natural/innate ability (can be done without nen). Wild avenger fits into specialization, but what exactly does it boost? how is it offensive? Cheetah's breath and black bolted blitz seems to be more of emission/materialization.. more of emission since it is sent towards a target. also what is your definition of physical torture? there could be a target that considers a mere touch too painful and consider it to be physical torture, that would spell instant death for you, so you'd have to define that more clearly.

    that's all the stuff that i dont quite get. in terms of balance, it's pretty unbalanced, being the conditions are too heavy (for the intended purpose), it would definitely make the nen much much stronger, but for the tasks that you want to do (interrogation, espionage, stealth), the risks seem to be too big, if not actually a burden for the job. well i guess the riskier it is the more powerful it becomes. You have a couple of death penalties, and even a lifetime vow!

    p.s. sorry for double posting

    Cool indeed. A humble suggestion: since is based in drug consumption, wouldn't be cooler if at Aggression phase, after eating high quality meat like a nen user's flesh, the mood would become wilder the more meat has been consumed? Plus getting more and more addict over time. Thus meaning the more and the greater the meat, the more power, but also the more will rational mind be blown away and the more addict you are the harder will be to keep you without meat

    Well, yea I didn't really know either but I'm using a lot of manipulation and emission techniques. Yea the Pledges might be slightly unnecessary looking back at it. But the state in which the person would find themselves is basically just a trance where they answer accordingly to any questions... The technique is fairly self centred so torture would mean what the user himself thinks is torture (but mind you, any form of torture is useless since it would end up the same in any case). The biggest advantage of this ability is that you can extract information without leaving a single trace of suspicion, so its a dangerous ability, but it also saves you from stressful situations. Wild stalk can be seen as a nen ability through some of the conditions, as full camouflage is not a true ability of humans. Its basically just getting to the point where the user is only fully detectable by En. Wild Avenger boosts offensive capabilities in an Enhancement sense, but with the qualities of the respective animal. So rather than just getting epicly strong the user would be more boosted in terms of speed (but obviously, also strength). Cheetahs breath and black bloted blitz to me are emission and manipulation. Black blotted blitz is basically just throwing cheetahs at ppl and Cheetahs Breath is the questioning technique. In terms of it being risky, I made as risky as possible in order for it not to be too overpowered but u know, that can be tweecked. and i also wanted to have fun experimenting with vows and limitations... but yea if you suggest what i could afford to change it will be helpful cuz i think im gonna try and make a fan fiction of hunter x hunter using this ability. Cheers

    yes that's a great idea, if the meat is too good, the sudden boost in nen would affect the user psychologically, i want it to be rewarding though so instead of 'wild' i'm considering to make it insanely blissful (think of hisoka's face when he enjoys his prey. hahahaha!). you might lose control. i kinda want to make it balanced too, after experiencing insane bliss, you'll feel really shitty once the effect wears off. the more pleasurable it is, the more difficult the withdrawals.

    well not all drugs are addictive haha! the ability can be somewhat addictive because of the pleasure affects & withdrawal effects from the meat (if it's too nauseating/painful), so i decided on making the tolerance the variable factor instead. i kind of want to make it rewarding to not eat meat for a long time. the ability, instead of forcing you to consume meat, rewards you for not consuming meat (the nen becmoes stronger overtime). it is triggered though by consuming meat, so you go back to zero after :P

    also i forgot to add, if the nen used during the aggression phase is too powerful, there's a risk of death when withdrawal comes and the user quits meat cold turkey. it can be 'treated' though by giving the user (decreasing) amounts of meat when he/she cannot handle the withdrawals anymore (to regulate the body from going into shock) until he/she has the capacity to cope with the 'reduced' withdrawal. This will greatly prolong the meditative phase though. Now that's what you call addiction!
