Flight was the ability to fly and remain airborne without external influence or the use of contraptions.
Methods[edit | edit source]
Flight could be achieved through various methods.
Magical[edit | edit source]
Levitation through magical means was demonstrated by several magic practitioners. This method of flight relied on magical ability to stay airborne. Witches who possessed this skill included Willow Rosenberg, Tara Maclay, Amy Madison, and Kumiko Ishihara.
Atmospheric manipulation was a method performed by Willow when she channeled dark magicks. According to Anya Jenkins, Willow was still incapable of teleportation at that moment, and thus had to rely on flight. When using the ability, Willow appeared to vanish and/or appear with gusts of winds and bolts of lightning. Anya described this method to be "more flashy" and impressive to a casual observer, but still took longer than teleporting.
Dracula, through transmogrification, achieved flight by assuming the form of a bat, cloud of mist or swarm of bees. Toru's pack could also do this after Dracula revealed his secrets to them. New vampires could fly due to their similar shapeshifting abilities. Willow could also fly by turning herself into a seagull.
Biological[edit | edit source]
This method relied on the presence of a being's wings or similar appendages. As opposed to other known forms of flight, this relied mainly on innate biological and anatomical features instead of magical affinity. Beings with this ability included:
