Ability negativity is the ability to have various negative effects on the abilities of others or one's own abilities.
- Lola Sanchez-Hawkins had this ability naturally.
- Elan Vaughan-Reist-Greene-Maxxted gained this ability when Lola used it to give it to her, but has lost it.
- Daniel Vaughan-Reist-Greene has mimicked this ability from Lola.
- Sky Ashford has inherited this ability.
- Peter Petrelli has mimicked this ability from Lola in World 3.
To date, Lola has only ever used this ability accidentally. She first used it to negate her other abilities, and then to cause loss of control of metallokinesis and life/death touch. She also used the ability to transfer it over to Elan, but eventually regained it. She has not displayed it since, but has gained more control and hasn't lost control of it either.
Similarly to Lola, Elan at first struggled to control this ability, and would accidentally use it to negate other abilities. However, after learning this she practiced with it continually until she could control it and wouldn't use it without meaning to do so. When she killed her father, she used this to prevent him from healing, regenerating or fighting back. She also learned to use it to give abilities back to their original owners, and thus lost it.
Daniel has not yet displayed this ability.
Sky was at first unaware that she possessed this particular ability. She would accidentally use it sporadically on her other abilities, preventing her from developing her full potential. She is still learning to control it.
Peter will have similar limits to Lola, but is yet to use the ability. It is unknown whether or not he will struggle to control it at first.
