Superhuman Athleticism is the ability to possess athletic abilities beyond what is normally attainable. Users can possess levels of agility, leaping capabilities, maneuverability, balance, dexterity, coordination, endurance, stamina, flexibility, reflexes, and so on that isn't feasibly attainable even by the most dedicated of trainers.

This ability is technically an application of Superhuman Physical Characteristics, though not every Superhuman has this (such as low-level Superhumans). It is also usually associated with Enhanced Senses.


  • Enhanced Athleticism: Users possess capabilities beyond that of olympic athletes, capable of traversing cities by leaping from building to building, dodge out the way of or catch bullets or other projectiles even in enclosed areas, outmaneuver and subdue hordes of people with comparable strength, fight for hours or even days without fatigue, perform near-boneless looking contortions without stress or damage, hold their breath for large periods of time, and so on.
  • Supernatural Athleticism: Users possess vastly superhuman capabilities, capable of leaping across cities or even into orbit in single bounds, fight for weeks, months, years, and even longer without fatigue, and so on.
  • Godly Athleticism: Users possess god-like athletic capabilities, having inexhaustible stamina and endurance, capable of leaping between astronomical bodies, can balance in any position and never have to worry about disorientation or nausea, being capable of fluidly moving around in any environment or condition, and so on.


  • Actual superpowers may trump mere athleticism
  • Will usually have limitations
  • Users may not possess all of the superhuman athletic traits mentioned above
