Most of the adolescents who appear in Charlotte have a flawed ability of some sort. These abilities are "awakened" when an individual reaches adolescence and go away when adolescence is over.

Known Abilities

"Invisibility", when an individual is able to disappear from a person's field of vision. However this ability is imperfect as Nao Tomori, known to have this ability, is limited to become invisible to one person of her choice at a time.

"Fast Movement", Jōjirō Takajō has the ability to travel as high speeds, but he cannot control where he stops. To combat this flaw, he wears protective clothing under his school uniform. This movement is so rapid it appears to be teleportation; however, it is not to be confused with actual teleportation.

"Spiritism", when an individual is able to become possessed by dead spirits. Yusa Nishimori has this ability, as she usually is possessed by her dead sister, Misa Nishimori.

"Time Leap", when an individual can leap back in time as long as light enters both of their eyes. The only concern with this ability is that the individual's vision decreases with each use, eventually resulting in complete blindness and loss of the ability.
