I noticed a couple of references around the forum to the bonus powers gained through Power Disc alchemy, but no comprehensive summary. So I've put the following list together, describing all possible combinations that give bonus powers using the regular series 1 ability discs as well as the lenticular exclusives from EB Games/Toys R Us.
But first, some interesting facts:
- Most bonus powers are achievable via more than one combination.
- When multiple combinations can give a specific bonus power, there is usually one disc common to these combinations (for example, the Turbo Charge power requires Felix combined with either Scrooge or Jack)
- Only one of the ability discs (Emperor Zurg's Wrath) currently doesn't exhibit any alchemy. Perhaps it will when new discs come out in series 2 or 3, though.
- Testing two identical discs (the common disks only; I don't have duplicates of the exclusives) together revealed only the expected additive affect, no synergy. It's possible that one of more of the exclusive discs may have alchemy when two of the same are used together.
