    Is their any power or powers that the Jedi and Sith might possess or be able to do, that has never really been featured onscreen or mentioned in the books. Basically, the only way to know about this power, would be to magically enter the world of Star Wars and open a Jedi or Sith holocron.

    I'd imagine that there are some incredible surgeons who use the force to mess around with veins and bloodflow during surgery.

    Tenel Ka was able to stall her pregnancy for months, to keep suitors guessing who the father is.

    Bardan Jusik was able to rebuild Fi's brain using the force.

    On the topic of what probably exists: Enciting fire. I can see the "bad guy" of the next trilogy using flame as a weapon. Not that I'm at all for that.

    I'd say force users could slow their ages, seduce potential love interests/seductions, and probably other techniques that aren't combat oriented, heal oriented, or otherwise.

    In The Crystal Star, we see Jaina create a tiny ball of heat and light in her cell to keep herself warm and happy - that might be thought of as a ball of fire.

    Given how weird some Legends material got, it will be hard to find a Force power that hasn't appeared at least once, even if it was only in a reference book.

    The Wookieepedia page on Force Powers gives us limited time travel (Flow-walking), the ability to move through solid objects (Phase), and using the Force almost like an elemental power (summoning winds and storms, or making vines grow rapidly to ensnare enemies).

    The Book of Sith mentions Convection (using to the Force to cause blistering heat or even flames) and Cryokinesis (sapping energy to freeze your opponent). Not only are these logical extensions of Force Lightning (they all involve manipulating energy), but together the three abilities form the Fire/Ice/Lightning trope that shows up in a great deal of pop culture. Strangely even though Force Lightning is common in both the movies and EU, the other two have only ever appeared in the aforementioned Book of Sith, the Jedi Academy Training Manual, and one of the Lost Tribe of the Sith comics. Probably because the writers want to avoid turning the Jedi/Sith into X-men.

    Surprisingly, I don't think anyone has ever used the Force to teleport. Sure there's been artifacts from ancient civilizations that allow teleportation, but not Force powers as far as I know.

    Have we seen Force Destruction outside of Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight? It was that Dragon Ball-like force power in the game.

    The Medstar books had Force healing, if I recall correctly.

    I don't mind pyrokinesis and creating fire-honestly it should have been done more.

    And yeah teleportation is something the Aing-Tii were capable of doing.

    We don't see as much in the way of Force Chemistry (alchemy?) as would be expected. Making components physically from the Force by recombining molecules or atoms -- like metal, water, etc. There was some pseudo-alchemy in the old EU but it was super vague and mainly consisted of members of the Keto family going "ooo look I did Sith alchemy!" followed by lightning or some dramatic sparklefest. I'm thinking more like "look, I made some nova crystals! Here's a crystal for you, a crystal for you, crystals for everybody!" Or like "oh crap my lousy sith apprentice lost my phrik lightsaber. No worries, I'll just make another. *poof* there's a blob of phrik. I guess I better get it to a sith blacksmith cuz I can't really do anything but make the stuff."

    Force Speed is a skill very used in games and novels of Star Wars
    And this is the only time we see the Force Speed in the movies
    Although the truth is we have almost never seen many Force skills in movies

    There's Talzin's various alchemical mixtures in TCW, the invisiblity potion, the voodoo stuff with Dooku, her crystal ball.

    Plus there's Sidious and Tyranus' Sith alchemy used to create a dreamscape for Yoda.

    There is also a lot of creepy dark alchemy in Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void, involving brain alternations and living flesh.

    Curato Salva is a thing, pretty much covers that. Seduction I guess would just be a form of mind trick.

    I thought seduction was called gin.

    Is that just making your voice higher using the force? Or using the force to...well, you know.

    Who knows what the Jedi were up to, especially during old republic times. Maybe they did have Jedi choirs and force singing that also required castrati for certain pieces and effect.
