Powers and abilities

The Magenta Wisps are able to levitate in midair at will, which serves as their main method of transportation.

The Magenta Wisps are able to generate and store their own unique variant of a powerful energy known as Hyper-go-on inside their own bodies, which is their life source. It is unclear to what extent they can use their own Hyper-go-on.

The magenta Wisps are able to pass on a fraction of their Hyper-go by phasing into the recipient. When organic beings receive their Hyper-go-on, they can transform into the Magenta Rhythm which enables air bouncing.
