RE: Useless Superpowers
In all media, what is the most useless super power you've ever seen? Why was it so useless?

Growing fingernails is pretty useless on it's own... Though if they could be launched like projectiles that could be more useful. (Especially if they could put poisons on the tips...)

I would say that the ability to inflate like a balloon would be pretty useless in most cases. (Bouncing Boy from Legion of Superheroes being one example of "inflatable hero".) Sure he can become rubbery and inflate, but most villains either have pointy objects, access to pointy objects or sufficient powers to completely negate Bouncing Boy's inflation. So stab Bouncing Boy with a pin and he deflates and likely can't re-inflate for a while. Besides if they're a super villain they probably are powerful enough that getting hit with a ball, even one moving at high speeds isn't going to even budge them. (EX- if Superman can haymaker an enemy and they only go flying 10 feet without much visible damage, being hit by a ball is only a nuisance.)

There are probably more useless powers, but I can't think of them right now...

There was a similar topic I read on another forum, and someone mentioned a super heroine who had the power to be visible. Because of some radiation or whatever, she just was able to become visible. Which really makes no sense as to how it's a super power at all. XD

RE: Useless Superpowers
*spoilers ahead
There are so many useless superpowers and most of the are created for comedy purpose. Take an example kiemon from one piece. He is a samurai from wano kingdom and recently, I came to know that he is a devil fruit user.

I don't remember if it's released in anime yet but he can produce clothes for people. Well, I don't know how it can be useful and how someone would want clothes, in an emergency.

Well, anyway, because of this ability, as a devil fruit user, he can't swim anymore and he is useless against sea stone. So, I don't think the ability is worth it.
So, according to me, that would be the useless superpower so far.
