Reconstitution, also known as Reforming, is the ability to pull oneself back together again after the body's total destruction. It has no allegiance, and allows the user to reform from Molecular Combustion or a similar explosive attack.

Some beings are able to reconstitute themselves in a different location from where they were blown apart, allowing them to escape from an attack as well as recover, and even launch a surprise attack.


  • The Source of All Evil first used this power while possessing Shane. He was able to reform after Piper blew him up.[1]
  • Leo Wyatt first used this power after Piper blew him up in a fit of rage while transforming into a Fury.[2]
  • Lazarus Demons will continue to reconstitute themselves indefinitely unless buried in a cemetery.[3]
  • Bianca used this power after being blown up by Piper at P3, though she was able to reform in the alley behind the club.[4]

Notes and Trivia

  • The effect used for Reconstitution often closely resembles the form of teleportation known as Shredding
  • Leo confirms in Centennial Charmed that even though he can survive being blown up, it still hurts.
