    Just to clarify, we are obviously talking about the kid from Pokťmon, right?

    Depends.

    Is there a durability limit? Can I turn something that doesn’t turn into ash naturally, into ash? Like steel?

    No durability limit and yes you can.

    I can think of a lot of instances where looking like Bruce Campbell or having a chainsaw for a hand would be useful.

    Do you just turn into a pile of ash, or is it more like a Logia thing from One Piece where your body is ash, but you can still control yourself fully. If it's an ash elemental form deal, then yes, it's incredibly useful in terms of not really being physically hurt anymore.

    Turning things into ash is not as useful, but if you can also control ash, that might be sliiiightly more useful. But not really.

    It's the latter. And thanks.

    Seems not worth it unless you can also turn back from ash.

    Well, in that case it doesn't matter what it is, I can instantly kill anybody I want to by turning them into it.
    Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence.

    When I transform into ash, do I have mobility? Like, am I now an animate cloud of ash that can fly around? If so, it's useful, like a vampire's ability to become gaseous.

    Changing stuff into ash could be useful for self-defense. An enemy's gun or knife could become ash, or the enemy himself if he does not retreat. I guess in that case I'd also need a pretty good vacuum cleaner....

    I probably should have made it clear in the opening post but yes.

    I can't imagine it'd be any more or less useful than sand-related powers.

    1: Depends if can control the ash form, as in shapes and mobility. Also ash is due to something being super burnt. So in essence could be Sand Man that burns things via touch.

    2: Depends in limit of what gets ashes and control of it.

    3: Combo if 1 and 2.

    Yeah. As a youth til now I studied, everything. There is a game of fantasy with ash powers where you can kill people and monsters, with ash.

    Yeah like crazy shoe string budget Batman over here.

    Death: But you are a Dark Lo-

    Do not give it away yet friend.

    Not a cool as a beech. Or maybe redwood.

    Yes, that was a reference to the ash tree.
