Seismic burst is the ability to emit a burst or shock wave of seismic energy, and use it to repel away objects or people.
- Mr. Shaw possessed this ability.
- Mr. Taylor also had this ability naturally.
- An unnamed repair man was shown to possess this ability too.
- Alan Johnson had this ability also.
- In World 8, Joshua Evans has gained this ability empathically from Mr. Shaw.
- Robert Max has mimicked the ability from Josh.
- In World 8, Peter Petrelli had also mimicked the ability from Josh.
- Bart Scott also possessed this ability.
- Jennifer Carroll possesses this ability.
- Reed "Red" Reed has mimicked this ability from Jennifer.
- Monica Dawson has manifested this ability naturally in World 8.
- Hadley Sanchez-Hawkins-Parkman will be given this ability using ability manipulation.
The ability enables a person to emit bursts or shock waves made of seismic energy. For most individuals, the shock waves have only been shown being emitted from the palm of the person's hand, though it is unknown if this is essential or only assists in aiming the burst. Monica can emit bursts without actually moving her arms, but her shock waves are more powerful when associated with additional movement. The bursts have been strong enough to send another person flying across a room or area, although no visible physical damage was done upon initial impact. However, damage can be caused by subsequent collision after being thrown backwards, as shown by "Red" when she used the ability to kill Noah Gray. Every burst which has been seen has been shown to be transparent, appearing almost as movement of air, but it is unknown whether they can also be produced in any particular colour. Most bursts have been shown in black and white flashbacks.
- Telekinesis can be used to repel objects or people from oneself
- Sonic scream can also be used to send people across a room
- Kinetic energy manipulation can produce a kinetic blasts which throws people and objects away
- Movement manipulation and advanced telekinesis can also throw objects away
- One version of musical empathy can gain a sonic scream from rock music
- Enhanced synaesthesia can produce a harmful blast when music is combined with anger, worry and fear
- Psionic energy manipulation can also be used to produce shock waves
- Shock wave emission is the ability to emit waves of seismic energy
- Seismokinesis is the ability to manipulate tremors and vibrations
