* PapaWolf: For his daughter, Claire, whom he works to protect, but... despite his efforts, often manages to screw everything up. [[RunningGag As he tends to do]]. They ultimately make up though.

* PapaWolf: For his daughter, Claire, whom he works to protect, but... despite his efforts, often manages to screw everything things up. [[RunningGag As he tends to do]]. They ultimately make up though.



Claire's family life is [[TangledFamilyTree taken to the next dysfunctional level]] when her biological origins reveal her to be the daughter of Nathan Petrelli and Meredith Gordon, two people with abilities, who were told she died in a fire at 18 months old. However, her grandmother, Angela Petrelli, also an evolved human, knew she survived and has been hiding Claire from this very same [[AncientConspiracy Company]], even after arranging her adoption with the Bennet family. Family drama ensues, particularly when she learns Nathan and Angela are willing to let New York blow up so he can become president. It's okay, though, because she inspires Nathan's HeelFaceTurn and New York is saved. Armed with quite the assortment of daddy-issues, Claire continues her [[MoralityPet talent]] for inducing [[HeelFaceTurn Heel-Face Turns]] in dad #1, Noah, throughout volumes two to three and again with dad #2, Nathan, in volume four. She even dates a guy who can fly, just like her biological father, Nathan.

* MindOverMatter: His favorite and most used power and first acquired through the slice and dice method from Brian Davis. He can exert enough telekinetic force to flip a truck through the air or tear sheet metal, and he has enough control to cut off the top of a person's skull to expose the brain. Sylar has repeatedly been shown using telekinesis to shield himself from bullets, as well as to augment his own physical strength. And is able to use this power with relatively little concentration. Sylar typically uses hand gestures in conjunction with telekinetic feats, although he can use this ability without them (presumably they somehow help him to direct the power). He was able to incapacitate an opponent when he was unable to move, although it seemed to take intense concentration to do so.

* TimeMaster: Hiro possessed the power to control the space-time continuum, giving him the power to manipulate the flow of time, travel through time.
** BulletTime
** TeleportersAndTransporters: Can also teleport to any location. Although being able to teleport and time travel great lengths at once, Hiro apparently had little control over how much time elapses when he teleports. This shows that, without further honing of his powers, he may not be able to teleport great distances without also traveling in time.
** TimeStandsStill: Season 3 revealed that he doesn't actually stop time, he just slows it down. Daphne, a speedster, is able to notice when using her powers and can speed herself up to compensate. It's also revealed that Hiro doesn't know if his ability is localized, or not. However, since he later carries a frozen Ando a considerable distance in a wheelbarrow with time staying frozen all around him, it seems likely that he's actually speeding himself up relative to the universe as a whole rather than freezing time in a localized area around him. The best example is when he proves his ability to Charlie by blinking and then showing her hundreds of origami cranes that suddenly appear around her. This scene is shown from Charlie's point of view, as showing Hiro make these would take awhile.
** TimeTravel: His time travelling basically set off the whole first series in an attempt to change the future, it's a lot harder than you imagine, apparently. Also in the second series, he travels back in time and creates the character he heard in his bedtime stories.

* LivingLieDetector: He can hear people's thoughts, and so also knows whether or not they're lying. As long as the person he's talking to actually thinks in English, that is. He can also only compare what the person is saying to what they're thinking. While that is enough to tell a liar in most cases, Noah Bennet once managed to trick him by thinking something that wasn't true.
* LotusEaterMachine: He enters Daphne's mind in her last moment of life, creating a fictional storybook ending for her in Paris.
* MasterOfIllusion: Matt can implant telepathic illusions in another's head. An example when make Knox think he killed Matt and Daphne when they were actually in the other room. The illusion was convincing enough to fool Knox's sense of touch, something his father Maury was seemingly unable to accomplish.
* MindProbe: Parkman's mind-reading powers eventually evolve to this degree. He uses this power in the Dark Future, whereas Present-Day Parkman finds it simpler to just command people to tell him the truth, seeing as how he's also developed mind control powers.
* MindRape: Both he and his father have the power to force some poor SOB into a living nightmare which puts their body in a coma and their mind in...well, their worst nightmare. Maury gets the tables turned on him in a season two episode and gets trapped in his own mind by Matt. In a nasty case of KickTheSonOfABitch, Matt locks Sylar in his own worst nightmare- a world where he is completely and utterly alone. Each hour that passes in the real world is a year in the nightmare.

* InformedFlaw: For all the show's talk about "the Hunger", Sylar seems perfectly capable of interacting with other supers ''without'' the uncontrollable urge to kill them and eat...err..."study" their brains. Notably, he has spared both Luke and Micah, and also refrained from snacking on Doyle despite dragging him across the country for more than a day. (Though he didn't really need [[PeoplePuppets Doyle's power]], as his own telekinesis could already do the same thing better.)

Later, he learned how to do it without the slicing and dicing, but [[ForTheEvulz he still prefers that method anyway]].
** MindOverMatter: Favorite / most used power and first acquired through the slice and dice method from Brian Davis.
** PeoplePuppets: Possibly from Eric Doyle, possibly just an application of MindOverMatter.

Claire's family life is [[TangledFamilyTree taken to the next dysfunctional level]] when her biological origins reveal her to be the daughter of Nathan Petrelli and Meredith Gordon, two people with abilities, who were told she died in a fire at 18 months old. However, her grandmother, Angela Petrelli, also an evolved human, knew she survived and has been hiding Claire from this very same [[AncientConspiracy Company]], even after arranging her adoption with the Bennet family. Family drama ensues, particularly when she learns Nathan and Angela are willing to let New York blow up so he can become president. It's okay, though, because she inspires Nathan's HeelFaceTurn and New York is saved. Armed with quite the assortment of daddy-issues, Claire continues her [[MoralityPet talent]] for inducing [[HeelFaceTurn Heel-Face Turns]] in dad #1, Noah, throughout volumes two and three and again with dad #2, Nathan, in volume four. She even dates a guy who can fly, just like her biological father, Nathan.

Claire TookALevelInBadass in volume three where she stops wangsting, takes an active role in the fight against the Level 5 {{Supervillain}}s and later Pinehearst Industries, culminating in a showdown against arch-villain, Sylar, where she helps save her father, biological mother, and grandmother. This continues in volume four when both her fathers, Noah and Nathan, are revealed to be working a government initiative to round up super-powered people. Her dads grant Claire a free pass to protect her from this operation but she uses it to aid the resistance against the round-up by hiding super-powered people from her fathers and the government. In volume five, Claire attempts to live a normal life and goes to college, but ends up getting sucked into stopping Samuel's plans alongside the rest of the Heroes.

In season one, Nathan is a wealthy lawyer running for congress with a [[PutOnABus wife and two sons]]. Shortly after, he discovers his daughter Claire Bennet is alive, a child he had with ex-lover, Meredith Gordon. Nathan believed his infant daughter died in a fire 14 years prior but his parents knew Claire survived, kept Nathan unaware, and they placed her with the Bennet family. Later in season one, Nathan reluctantly joins The Company's plan to become the leader and unite mankind by destroying New York City but at the last moment, ThePowerOfLove motivates him to perform a HeroicSacrifice in the season one finale to save everyone instead.

Claire is an "invincible" teenage cheerleader with the ability to regenerate from all injuries, meaning she essentially can't die. She's quite disturbed by her powers at first, fearing that they make her a freak, and spends quite a good amount of time angsting about this. It doesn't help matters that her manifesting powers make her family life incredibly unstable, thanks to her adoptive father, Noah, turning out to be a Secret Agent Guy who hunts people with powers, but he is doing everything possible to hide her powers from the [[AncientConspiracy Company]], which he works for.

A short session with Mr. Horn-Rimmed Glasses in the backroom, though, ends with two broken fingers and a never-to-be-repressed terror of his new employee. He dosn't have any powers, and still maganges to match everyone else by knowing how they work. And then, in a two-part episode, everyone loses their powers. And Sylar makes him mad.
