Melting is the ability to turn any solid object into a liquid state.
- Zane Taylor had this ability naturally.
- Gabriel Gray has taken this ability from Zane in World 3 and World 8. He had also taken it in World 2 and World 5, but subsequently lost it.
- Robert Max has mimicked this ability from Gabriel.
- Peter Petrelli has also mimicked the ability in World 3, World 8 and World 11.
Not much is known about the limits of this ability, but it has been shown melting objects to a complete liquid. In using the ability, the character would place his hand over the object and concentrate, and the object would liquify. The ability doesn't seem to produce any heat, and in some cases the molten object would begin to solidify again in time, having lost its shape. It is unknown if there is a limit in size, or if an object can be partially melted, or if the ability could be used offensively to melt humans.
