    SO!

    It's been awhile since I've done this.

    And, since I'm terrible at actually keeping up with stories I think would be interesting to write, I'm once again saying screw it.

    So onto the question: If you had a base ability, like in Shounen and some Wuxia and other things, what would it be, and how would it grow?

    Base Template: Base - Intermediate - Advanced - Awakened - Max Potential

    Easy Example: Summoning (Summon Objects You've Marked - Summon Objects You've Touched - Summon Living Things You've Contracted - Summon Anything You've Marked - Summon Anything You've Touched)

    Don't have to go through the entire template, just set up as a guideline. Curious to know yours.

    Base: Transformation---Intermediate One Body Part---Advanced Whole Body Exterior---Awakened Whole Body Interior---- Max Anything I Touch.
    You do realize that some abilities would suck when limited to one thing like speed and strength also need endurance/durability to no die in some conditions right unless body improves with ability.
    EDIT* This thread is just going to become whoever can make the most OP abilities even if the evolution of the ability makes no sense or are a huge leap huh

    Base: Control of Plant movement (i.e. dragging a vine along) limited to one plant at a time.
    Intermediate: Can control multiple plants, and at longer ranges.
    Advanced: Can create plants that I think of and make them sprout from any surface around me, but I have to think of each in detail before I create it.
    Awakened: Evolve a mental 'catalogue' of all plants I've discovered or created and I can create them rapidly.
    Max Potential: I have a personal space (like in wuxia novels) which is my own grove, I can move into my grove myself or move the grove out of the space so that it spawns and sprawls around me.
    All previous abilities apply when moving stages. :aww:

    EDIT: I forgot to add, for the catalogue part, if I want to create plants I can't base them off created plants but work from the bottom up again.

    So, personally I'd probably go along the lines of something involving Strengthening.
    Base Ability Strengthening: Body Strengthening(Single Limb Enhancement(50% Enhancement)) - Intermediate Body Strengthening(Single Limb Enhancement(100% Enhancement)) - Advanced Body Strengthening(Multi Limb Enhancement(Up to 300% Enhancement for 4 Limbs) - Awakened Body Strengthening(Full Body Enhancement(Up to 500% Enhancement For full Body)) - Max Potential Strengthening(Enhancement of Body, Mind, and Objects(Body Enhancement up to 500%, Sense Enhancement 500%, Object Enhancement(Harder, Sharper, Etc.) 300%)

    Alucard vampirism....(hellsing)
    {
    lesser Vampire->Vampire->vampire lord->Vampire king->Blood Emperor-> Blood Saint-> Blood God->Blood Primordial
    lesser vampire{
    -any holy item deals 50% more damage
    -direct contact with the sun deals 10 hp per second and leaves uncurable burn (in normal ways)
    -15% resistance to magic
    -can sense blood around 10 meters of the (user/caster)
    -[magic trader]can transform 2 HP for 1 MP
    -the only way to heal it's by drinking blood
    -can control a limited amount of blood in 1 meter around the (user/caster)
    }
    each level up removes 10% of the damage from holy items.... and adds 5% to resistance to magic, reduces the hp cost in the [magic trader] until it reaches the 0.1 HP for 1 MP, the sun stop dealing damage to the vampire king level(the vampire recives 5 hp per second and the vampire lord receives 1hp per second without burns), the blood sense increaces range (vampire level)*10(and when the vampire level is reached it can consume MP to increase range), normal vampires can be healed through potions but it will only can heal half of the normal power
    }

    parallel universe traveling as well as multiverse traveling. Easily the most op ability lol just jump to worlds/universes like one piece (if they do exist) get that devil fruit jump to another world get some god level equipment jump again and get some magic knowledge. Heh and then use the power youve gained from one dimension to rob for more from other dimensions. Easy way to never be bored since theres always a parallel world/universet thats different. Goes like this Teleportation able to teleport to any location that youve visited before
    World Traveling---> able to visit any location in the world as long as you have a picture
    Void Tunneling---> able to travel anywhere anytime (meaning you can travel back in time as well)
    Unbound Movement---> able to traverse any location, within any time, unbound by paradoxes as well as restrictions such as space/time and able to travel parallel universes.
