Compulsion Edit

Damon using Enhanced Strength.

Compulsion[2] is one of Damon's most used powers although he swore not too used it anymore. It enables Damon to get into the mind of who ever he wants, and control his/her thoughts to make them forget or remember anything he desires. Although, sometime it is extremely risky, Damon has full control of the power since he used it for the first time in high school. However, this power can not be used against other vampires or other magical beings. This power, is often referred to an evil based power, although Damon hardly uses it for personal gain only to make other human beings forget if they have seen him using any of his other powers.

Enhanced Strength Edit

Due to him being half vampire he got gifted with the power of Enhanced Strength which enables him to move rather large and heavy objects to a long distant. However, this power is only limited and was toned down by his mother so he wouldn't be able to physically hurt or kill another human being. He was enraged about this, but eventually understood what his mother was doing, which was trying to protect him. He eventually gained enough trust from his parents, to get the full version of this power back in time to go into a huge battle.
