Son Goku (Dragon Ball Z)

Summary

The ability to move instantaneously from one location to another without physically occupying the space in between.

It can often be a form of spatial manipulation or quantum manipulation or magic. In some cases, you can even dematerialize out of material form from point to another as immaterial form, it allows you to move not only in space but in time, between dimensions, parallel worlds and metaphysical planes. It also includes all sorts of pseudo-teleportation.

Possible Uses

  • Teleporting an enemy far away (a black hole, another dimension, a parallel world, in the past, etc.) or teleporting an enemy to his own attack.
  • Teleporting enemy attacks (either far away or back to the enemy).
  • Ignoring external factors (due to the timely teleportation to another place / time / dimension).
  • Teleporting body parts of an enemy or teleporting any foreign objects into an enemy's body.

Types

  • Pseudo-teleportation: An imitation of teleportation due to short runs at a very high rate (much higher than the normal speed of the character). It may also be carried out at the expense of temporary transformation or dematerialize into a lightning / light / energy / astral entity (in this case, the character is able to partially ignore encountered in his way obstacles) or into countless number of smaller pieces of the original form.
    • Depending on how his form of semi-Teleportation is define or shown, it could be utilized for speed, but must follow a few applications:
      • This teleportation must be still "somewhat" in space and cannot bypass any matter/obstacle, physical or magical, because that would be just any teleportation.
      • This Teleportation would give them some sort of momentum boost, throwing them forward or in another direction without staying still.
      • For High Pseudo-Teleportation (Which would cover infinite speed), This teleportation must have a value of "0" for time because that would make the movement instant.
  • Teleportation in Space: Instant or nearly instantaneous displacement in space. It may take place either at the expense of spatial distortion (here also includes various spatial portals), or as a side effect of dimensional quantum teleportation or time travel.
  • Dimensional Teleportation: Teleportation between dimensions/universes. In the most advanced cases it allows you to navigate between multiverses and even hyperverses. It is important to note the differences in where they can or can't teleport and what their limitations are.
    • Tier 1: The user can teleport between dimensions.
    • Tier 2: The user can teleport across realities or universes.
    • Tier 3: The user can teleport in or out of higher planes of existence, Hyperverses.
    • Tier 4: The user can teleport into places where dimensions or universes do not exist such as Outerverses.
  • Quantum teleportation: Teleportation carried out at the expense of the quantum states of the switching object. In the most advanced cases can successfully mimic the omnipresence.
  • Time Travel: Instant or nearly instant time travel. As a side effect simulates the teleportation in space (due to the fact that the character takes a certain distance in the past or the future, and when it comes back in his time, it appears in a different point in space).
  • Magic Teleportation: Instantaneous or nearly instantaneous displacement between point A to point B, carried out with the help of magic spells, potions, or artifacts. Often ignores the laws of physics, logic and common sense.
  • Self-targeted Teleportation: The usual teleportation, using which the character may in some way to move in the space / time / inter-dimensional only himself.
  • Teleportation of Objects via "Transportation": Character can teleport both himself and other objects (which allows, for example, throw an enemy into the mouth of a volcano or on the surface of the sun, or even into another dimension or outer void).
  • Exchange: Character can swap places with another object (usually such teleportation is limited by the fact that the second object is needed to move in space).

Limitations

  • Activation Time: Though the teleportation is instantaneous to activate the possibility of such a move, in some cases, you need to spend a certain time (which can amount to hours or even days)
  • Time Delay: Depending on what Teleportation is used, the user may not reach point B from point A instantly as there would be some time between then.
  • Determination of Coordinates: In some cases, teleportation is possible only when you know the exact coordinates of the destination, accounting for pre-calculated or determined by some other way
  • Size: In some cases, able to teleport objects no more than a certain weight / volume
  • Distance: Sometimes teleportation distance is limited in space (or the length of time period, if we are talking about travel to the future / past), but even the displacement of 2-3 meters can be extremely helpful (for example, to pass through walls, or to move away from Attacks)
  • Portals: In some cases, can only teleport to a predetermined portal / lighthouse / magic artifacts, which greatly limits the possibility of such a move.

NOTES

  • There are at times where a faction will have more than one type of teleportation, though it could be they have different purposes, it is important to note them if they come up.
