Powers and Abilities
Pesky Dust is capable of flight and possesses enhanced speed and agility thanks to his fairy-like wings. He can also leave behind a green trail[note 1] while flying.
Pesky Dust can release a special kind of dust that makes his victims fall asleep, such as Zaroffians, Pugnavores, Polymorphs, Galvanic Mechamorphs,[DJW 1] Chronosapiens, Ectonurites,[DJW 2] and even Celestialsapiens[DJW 3] and Ultimate Kevin.[DJW 4]
Pesky Dust can enter and examine the dreams of other beings, which can be used as a form of interrogation or extracting information from a victim. However, they must be affected by Pesky Dust's sleep dust in order for him to enter their dreams.[DJW 5]
Pesky Dust can control the dreams of multiple victims at once.[DJW 6]
If Pesky Dust were to keep dousing a victim in his sleeping dust, they would end up sleeping forever.[DJW 7]
Pesky Dust can manipulate a victim's dreams, causing them to have nightmares instead.
Pesky Dust is quite small and is not suited for melee combat.
