Samedi is unharmed after crashing into a car.
|Held by:||Baron Samedi|
|Ability to:||Be resistant or immune to physical harm|
Impenetrable skin is an ability that makes the possessor's skin, bones, vessels, organs, tissues and their entire body into a virtually indestructible (impenetrable) armor. Although their body would simply feel like normal flesh, with lean, well-toned, perfectly developed muscles, the possessor of this ability is for all intents and purposes invulnerable to external and internal harm or injury (only hair and nails are normal which can be cut/trim). Always maintaining peak physical condition, perfect health and near invincibility.
Samedi's ability makes his skin impervious to physical harm from any known source. The Haitian has remarked that Samedi's skin is invulnerable to objects such as knives, fire and bullets.
Samedi's ability actually seems to extend to all his tissues, not just his skin; when flown into a car by Nathan Petrelli, Samedi stood up unscathed, even though such an impact would normally cause internal injuries. He did, however, seem to be stunned by the experience.
This ability apparently provides no resistance to abilities that target the mind, such as mental manipulation.
...but Samedi is not hurt.
- In deleted scenes shown on the Season Two DVD, Sylar obtains the ability of impenetrable skin from a character named Robert Keep. In this scene, Sylar telekinetically extracted Keep's brain through his mouth and nasal passage (although it is questionable that a person's brain could be removed this way and remain in one piece). It is unknown as to whether Samedi would be so susceptible.
