Necromancers had the ability to exert physical control over any kind of dead and undead creature, including vampires, ghosts, and zombies, being capable of manipulating the actions - such as speaking or moving - of an undead. At one point, when Hainsley took control of Angel, he claimed that he could dust him without a stake. He also transported Spike to his house from a distance.

Necromancers also had the ability to transfer spirits, either human or demon, into dead or undead bodies, as well as raising the dead. In the case of transferring spirits into sentient undead, according to Spike, the original consciousness of host body would cease to exist.
