Misfits Wiki

Power Transferal is the ability to take powers from people and/or give them to others.


  • Seth is the only person to have displayed this ability.


In the Christmas Special, Seth showed that he was able to take powers from the user and give them to other people. He removed all of this Misfits group powers and at the end of the episode was shown granting them new ones. Seth showed that he had to hold the hands of the person in order to take abilities or give them, which then causes a bright glow from their hands.

Seth can store other's powers inside of him, but he cannot use them himself. Seth has also demonstrated that he can take a power and give a new power simultaneously, which is what he did when taking the Gender Swap back from Curtis, and giving him the Resurrection power. It seems that, when Seth initiates a transfer, he prevents the power activating, as he was able to touch Alisha and take her power without it activating it, and he was able to take the Immunity power, even though Immunity should have made it impossible to take the power.

Power Transferals[]

In Alternate Timelines[]

In Friedrich's World:


  • Whilst Seth is the only character to have displayed this ability, it is strongly suggested he is not the only one with the power to deal. When speaking to a character in Episode 6 (Series 3) who has kidnapped someone with a resurection ability, the kidnapper states "...do you still want it, though ch'eah? I mean, 'cause if you don't I can always find another buyer." Judging from Seth's communication with this character throughout the third series; it is possible the kidnapper makes money by tracking down people with certain powers, to be taken and dealt. It is possible that any drug dealer hit by the storm gained the power to deal powers. *A possible reason that Seth can't use the powers could be that as a drug dealer he didn't take the product
