What ONE single *Force Power* would YOU want to have?

Postby Inzane » Sun Mar 15, 2009 1:23 pm

Ok, the question is simple. If you could have 'a' Force power, any power (at least of the ones we know of in SW lore), which would you want to have? (you can only pick ONE, not a top 3 or top 5 or whatever). Answer on impulse.

Mine would be.......

Force Push/Pull. (assuming that counts as one power).

The ability to make an object come to your hand (think Luke hanging upside down in Wampa cave, needing his lightsaber). Or likewise, being able to throw a switch from a distance. (you're running for that elevator and the door is closing but you're too far away... need to hit that button).

If I could only choose one, that would be it.

Let's hear yours. XD

I'd go with Telekinesis in general, just for the utility of being able to lift of things, people, etc. I figure you can parley that into everything else (after all, isn't force push/pull basically the same thing? Yoda's lifting up skirts in the park, also telekinesis!). While sensing feelings would be cool, or Force Lightning so gorram useful, yeah telekinesis.

Though, for the record, if lightsaber skill (and a working lightsaber) was available, I'd opt for that.
If the above post didn't offend you, you're probably reading it wrong.

I hear ya. I could've just said telekinesis in the generic sense as well. But I was thinking of the force powers in terms of how they've been broken down before like in the old Dark Forces/Jedi Knight computer games (for example), where they'd broken the light and dark side forces down into at least a half dozen distinctly different abilities on each side.

Yes, what Nick said.

Quick Answer: Minor Telepathic/Empathic abilities (reading people's emotions rather than their thoughts.)

This question invites the question: What are the other Force powers? Most Force powers are variations of telepathy and telekinesis. So, I'll make a quick list of major Force powers from memory and this (disputed) page.

Telepathic powers:
Telepathy/reading minds
Empathic abilities/reading emotions
Jedi Mind Trick
"Precognition" (often called danger sense)
Force Visions
Battle Meditation (inspires your troops)
"Force Meld" (Battle Meld, a refinement of Battle Meditation where teammates read each others minds)
"Comprehend Speech (universal translator, seen in novel Vision of the Future)
"Art of the Small" (lets you manipulate microscopic objects, seen in NJO novels and Champions of the Force)
"Force Confusion" (seen in Heir to the Empire)
Force Concealment
Wouldn't it be nice: Speed Reading

Telekinetic powers:
Force Push
Force Choke
Force Throw
Force Speed
Force Shield
Force Combustion?
Hibernation
Check out what it says for Force healing! Darth Plagueis could have used this power to create Anakin Skywalker.

The Jedi Mind trick could come in really handy! Especially in the bedroom ;) , but I think I'd opt for mind over matter. I could use it on a daily basis for more practical reasons. Light saber abilities would be cool too but I can't really think of too many reasons to be able to use it, except to show off but that might get old pretty fast. So I'll go with mind over matter Darth Vader style!

Hmmm, What one single "force power" would I want to have?

"you dont want any force powers"

" I dont want any force powers" :shock:

Jedi mind trick baby thats the ticket!! This would be great for work. I'd rather have a light sabe though..

Nick speaks for the rest of us truly lazy nerds... telekinesis unless we can have a real lightsaber.

Okay, this is an interesting direction. As for me, I'd go with telekinesis.

It's a tie between force speed and mind reading.

I would pick force choke. That way I could force people to give up their legos or be killed for not letting me have them (either way I could steal the legos) >:)

So, you're saying you'd use your Jedi powers for petty theft? That doesn't make you a sith... it'd make you... totally lame. (And LEGO or Lego bricks... it just looks wrong otherwise)

Seeing as how I went to law school and such, I think the Jedi Mind Trick would be the most useful for me, at least on a professional basis. "My client is innocent. You want to vote "not guilty", and then go for ice cream."

Boy, hard choice. I'd probably go for Jedi Mind Trick as well, but it really depends on where on the spectrum it's effectiveness is. Just who constitutes a weak-minded person?

I would go for the Precognition and the ability to "feel" things around me without seeing them. That would certainly be very handy in traffic or to keep my 18 months old son out of trouble. ;)
