Held by: Baron Samedi
Ability to: Be resistant or immune to physical harm

Impenetrable skin is an ability that makes the possessor's skin into virtually indestructible armor.



Samedi's ability makes his skin impervious to physical harm from any known source. The Haitian has remarked that Samedi's skin is invulnerable to objects such as knives, fire and bullets.

Samedi's ability actually seems to extend to all his tissues, not just his skin; when flown into a car by Nathan Petrelli, Samedi stood up unscathed, even though such an impact would normally cause internal injuries. He did, however, seem to be stunned by the experience.

This ability apparently provides no resistance to abilities that target the mind, such as mental manipulation.



  • In deleted scenes shown on the Season Two DVD, Sylar obtains the ability of impenetrable skin from a character named Robert Keep. In this scene, Sylar telekinetically extracted Keep's brain through his mouth and nasal passage (although it is questionable that a person's brain could be removed this way and remain in one piece). It is unknown as to whether Samedi would be so susceptible.
