Weapons & Equipment[edit | edit source]

  • Hypnos 2.0: Implants directly under the eye[5] in which have a variety of uses such as creating illusions or hallucinations, upload information to a system or directly into a agents mind, etc. There's also a safety switch in which Hypnos may be turned off and to curb resistance, a subliminal post-hypnotic suggestion may be used to send a shock to an individual's brain. In addition, it makes it impossible for people to capture an agent's face by memory or or by a camera.[6]
  • Spyral Uniform:There seems to be some sort of variations of typical uniforms worn by both agents of Spyral and even the doctors.[7][8]

Technology[edit | edit source]

  • Tele-Tube: Similar to Door, it allows for creating a portal from one location to another.[12]
  • Second Hand's Gauntlets: According to Nightwing, the Gauntlets grants it's user the strength equal to that of a gorilla.[12]
  • Time Vest: Alien technology that allows a user to freeze time within a given field.[13] A unfortunate side effect is that if it remains active for too long and exceed it's charge, it will drain the user and cause a lost of molecular cohesion, crumbling the user to dust.[14]
