Notable Attacks/TechniquesEdit

  • Auto-Aura: A passive ability that activates several enhancements simply by wearing the ring. Grants increased durability, allows flight and lets the user survive in space.
  • Aura Destruction: The red ring's energy is able to burn through the basic auras of other Lanterns.
  • Autoshields: A forcefield that activates automatically whenever the Lantern is in danger, independent of their own will. This shield is not as strong as a purpose - created forcefield, however
  • Constructs: Like all Lantern rings, the user can create energy constructs to use as weapons, restraints, or tools. Atrocitus is the only Red Lantern able to perform this feat, though Guy Gardner was able to do it as well when he was briefly a member of the RL Corps.
  • Rage Control: Red rings gain power from the anger of those around them. Anyone who faces a Red Lantern already in a state of anger is even more vulnerable to a red power ring's attack, as their anger only feeds the attack and increases its destructive power.
  • Scan: RL Rings can analyze a target comprehensively, determining its identity, power source, power level, threat level, weaknesses, capabilities, etc. This takes a bit of time to complete, though.
