User:ERROR/Ability mimicry abilities
From Heroes Wiki
Ability mimicry abilities are abilities that enable you to copy abilities. These copied abilities are still usable to you, but you still have only your original ability. That's because your absorbed abilities become byproducts of your individual ability mimicry ability.
Ability mimicry abilities cannot absorb each other or themselves, nor can they absorb copies of abilities from somebody else with an ability mimicry ability. This is demonstrated when Peter came across his future self.
If an ability mimicry ability is absorbed, the absorber gains the abilities absorbed by the absorbee separately from the ability mimicry ability. For example, when Arthur stole Peter's ability, Arthur gained a version of empathic mimicry that has no byproducts, and also gained Peter's byproducts as separate abilities from his new empathic mimicry.
