BASH Powers by Cost

In BASH, the more points a Power costs, the more intense and/or flexible it is. Therefore it makes sense to list the most expensive Powers first. This list goes well with my Optional Power Stunts by Point Cost Rule (see after the list.)

Most Powers will be placed in the highest cost slot available (Enhancements and Limitations are not considered.) In the case of Powers with different effects at different Levels, they are listed multiple times. Note that technically Cosmic Powers have no ceiling; in their case I’m listing them by the minimum cost of their effect(s). Cosmic Powers are marked with a *.

Most Powers are from BASH Ultimate Edition. Powers from the Awesome Powers books are marked “AP”.

Optional Rule: Power Stunts by Point Cost
With this rule, a Power being imitated by a Power Stunt must be of a cost equal to or less than the Power used to emulate it; this includes any Enhancements and Limitations added. A Hero Die (and a justification accepted by the Narrator) are still required.
-A Hero is Gliding down but suddenly must fly up. He spends a Hero Die and explains that he has “caught an updraft”. He can now use Flight (at a maximum of level 1) for the rest of the scene.
-A Hero with Special Attack 3 (no Range or Area) defined as a “super punch” is surrounded by enemies. He decides to try to hit them all by striking the ground and causing a shockwave. This would be a Special Attack with a Burst Area. However because of the Enhancement, its maximum Intensity level is 2.
