List Rules Vote up the weirdest anime powers you definitely wouldn't want.

While most anime feature characters with amazing superpowers that you'd totally want to have, not all powers are so enviable. Some anime abilities are just plain bizarre. While many viewers of My Hero Academia would absolutely accept the incredible "One for All" quirk if given the chance, not everyone would want, for example, Minoru Mineta's "Pop-Off" quirk, which lets him pull sticky purple spheres off of the top of his head and throw them at people.

Some weird anime abilities are just not useful in most situations. Whether or not you'd actually like to have one, the weirdest anime powers can make a series much more interesting. After all, there's only so many times you can watch a character breathe fire before it gets old. Once in a while, you just want to watch a girl hypnotize people into developing a glasses obsession like Ai Mori does in The Law of Ueki.

Read on to discover the strangest powers in all of anime and make sure to vote up the ability that you'd rather do without.

Melona's Corrosive Breast Milk – Queen's Blade
Melona's Corrosive Breast ... is listed (or ranked) 1 on the list The 15 Weirdest Abilities in Anime You Probably Wouldn't Want

Melona, of Queen's Blade, shoots corrosive breast milk when her boobs are stimulated by hand-shaped, gooey hair extensions. Yes, it's exactly as weird as it sounds. While some people probably find Melona's abilities titillating (get it?), they'd be pretty terrible to have in real life.

Breast milk isn't just ready to go at all times; it appears after pregnancy and childbirth. To be able to do this continuously, Melona would have to have like a billion kids... and her breasts probably hurt like crazy.

Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo is listed (or ranked) 2 on the list The 15 Weirdest Abilities in Anime You Probably Wouldn't Want

Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo has countless attacks that make use of his luxuriously long nose hair. There's Nosehair Snake Fist, which involves driving a long, stiff nose hair into someone else's nostril. There's the Nosehair Festival – a move using his boogers to attack his enemies. There's also the Hell Nosehair Drop, which involves grabbing one's opponent by their nose hair and slamming them into the ground.

Nose hair can be used for peaceful means, too. The Nose Hair Bridge is a rainbow bridge that people can cross, made out of (you guessed it) nose hair. Hey, no one ever said that anime had to make sense.

Minoru Mineta's Pop-Off Quirk – My Hero Academia

Basically everybody in My Hero Academia has some incredible abilities, but few of them are quite as unusual as Minoru Mineta's "Pop-Off" quirk. The kid has a nearly infinite supply of sticky round balls attached to his head, which he can pluck off at will. The bounciness makes them useful as a trampoline, and the stickiness can be used for... sticking to things.

However, if he takes off too many, he risks bleeding to death. While he has been able to use his quirk in battle, it doesn't have a lot of obvious practical effects.

Warcry's Tear Magic – Fairy Tail

Warcry, an otherwise aggressive character from Fairy Tail, gets incredibly emotional during battle. Why? Because he uses a type of caster magic called Tear Magic. The harder he cries, the more powerful he becomes.

While it does invoke incredible strength, it's got to be pretty difficult to force yourself to cry on command – and those big puffy, stylized tears look like they hurt coming out.
