"It phased through the window."
—Phoebe about the Will o' the Wisp.[src]

Intangibility, also known as phasing, is the ability to alter one's molecular structure to a state that can pass through physical matter.


This power makes the user's molecular structure intangible enough to let them pass through solid matter, such as weapons or walls. They can also bypass physical and magical attacks.

For certain magical beings, such as spirits, being incorporeal is a natural state of being, but some can master the power of Corporealization to make their spirit body solid enough to touch physical objects. For other beings, it can be activated by choice, such as Barbas or Drazi, allowing them to become temporarily intangible and even kill others by attacking their vital organs.
