Telekinesis is a type of psionic power. It is the ability to move, manipulate, and otherwise exert force on physical matter using one's mind, allowing the mind to be used as a weapon.



Telekinesis is a relatively rare psionic power for terrans, at least when compared with telepathy. Few terrans possess psionic powers and even fewer possess telekinesis, requiring a PI of at least 8 to possess it. Those who do so become the most powerful of ghosts and are referred to as "teeks."[1]

Nova Terra gets headaches whenever she uses her telekinetic abilities, though this is the exception for terran teeks rather than the rule.[2] Using telekinesis, she was able to "fry" brains, jam firearms, send objects flying through the air, and levitate to an extent.[1]

Delta Emblock possesses telekinesis, despite having a PI of 7, rather than the supposedly required 8,[3] while Tanya Caulfield possessed a 5.1.[4]

Terran telekinesis carries unique characteristics not found in protoss.[5]


At least some protoss are telekinetics.[6] A strong connection with the Khala gives a Khalai the ability to levitate.[7] High templar have been observed to levitate.[8][9]

The following section contains information from Heroes of the Storm that is ambiguously canonical.

Tal'darim warriors such as Highlord Alarak have exhibited the ability to use telekinesis to manipulate enemies and allies on the battlefield.[10]


Sarah Kerrigan retained her telekinetic abilities as the Queen of Blades.[11] In primal form, she demonstrated the ability to levitate.[12] Overlords also possess telekinesis, specifically a weak telekinetic ability that, along with helium-filled gas sacs, they used to propel themselves.[13]
