Henshin Is an ability in which the the user transforms themselves in preparation for battle. This process has also been called metamorphisis, and various other names, depending on the continuity.


The transformation is usualy performed by utilizing some sort of enchanted object such as a pendant, staff, ribbon or magical familiar. By concentrating on this object, and in some cases by speaking a special phrase or command (optional), and then undergoes anintricate transformation sequence and changes to their fully powered form. This "form" usually includes an elaborate costume, and enhaced abilities. Unlike the super transformations in most continuities, henshin rarely drains the users abilities, and does not make them invincible.
