- Emma Parkman has this ability naturally.
- Abbie Gray has absorbed the ability from Emma.
- Like his twin, Noah Gray has also absorbed the ability from Emma.
- In World 2, Peter Petrelli has mimicked the ability from Emma.
- Ryan Copon also has this ability naturally.
- Matt Parkman Jnr has manifested this ability naturally in World 3.
Emma's ability can be used for any form of communication. With it, she can communicate telepathically, projecting thoughts into the minds of others and also controlling thoughts to some degree. It also includes omnilingualism, so she can understand and communicate in all languages, verbal and non-verbal. It can be used to interpret codes and find hidden meanings, and to communicate with the Earth, with animals, with machines and with spirits. It aided her in learning to speak rapidly, as an infant.
Since Abbie mimicked this ability from Emma, she has similar limits.
Noah also has similar limits to Emma and his twin.
Peter has similar limits to Emma.
Ryan can communicate telepathically with any individual, no matter the distance between them and him. He doesn't need to know the person to do so, but he needs a name or a description of them in order to aim his communication. The ability enables him to understand, speak and write in every known language. He can also gain information from communicating with the earth, with plants and animals and with machines. The ability also seems to improve his skills of communication so that he doesn't often get misunderstood or misunderstand others himself.
Currently, this ability enables Matt to communicate telepathically with people nearby, and to speak more clerly and fluently than he normally would at his age. He can also understand people speaking in any language. In future he will be able to speak in any language himself, and read and write in them too. He will learn to communicate telepathically over longer distances, but only with people he knows. He will be able to communicate with animals, plants and machines.
