First Appearance Edit
The character first appeared in Morality Bites, not Forever Charmed. (Unless the MB Melinda has a separate page? I don't think so though because there's a section on here referencing Melinda in the alternative MB timeline.) 22.214.171.124 06:15, February 9, 2013 (UTC)
Melinda's inbox Edit
Melinda and wyatts inboxes must change with the new inboxe like the other kids. can anyone fixe it?
The page has both Telekinetic Orbing and Remote Orbing. I thought Melinda had only orbed objects so far, when did she orb people? Charmdozo 21:47, December 19, 2011 (UTC)
In 'The Heir Up There' she orbs Piper and Phoebe into another room P3nathan
Okay, thanks. Charmdozo 21:58, December 19, 2011 (UTC)
So is remote orbing a sub-power of orbing or since telekinetics can move people also it's a subpower of telekinetic orbing. I also remembered that Chris used remote orbing in the season 5 finale before we found out he was a hybrid.Kt111 22:10, December 19, 2011 (UTC)
I've always just considered it to be telekinetic orbing to be honest... telekinetics can move people aswell as objects. Hybrids like Paige, Melinda, Wyatt and Chris just do it with an orb effect like they do when they move objects. But as far as how it is considered on this wiki goes, yes it is a sub power P3nathan
I agree with P3nathan. Annasean51 22:17, January 30, 2012 (UTC)
In four's company we learn that the only sister that named her daughter after Prue was Phoebe. So Prudence should be removed from Melinda's infobox name.Kt111 00:48, January 31, 2012 (UTC)
I changed it. FANaticyeah 04:38, January 31, 2012 (UTC)
Her witch powers Edit
Melinda didn't display yet her witch powers... i hope her powers will be Molecular (freezing and blasting) like her mother! what you want to be her powers?
Telekinesis is her witch power but since she is half whitelighter for some reason she has TK Orbing.Kt111 15:36, January 31, 2012 (UTC)
This is her hybrid power... chris wtch power is telekinesis and wyatt has many but i think projection. Mel in the future will have another witch power. Excalibur90 15:41, January 31, 2012 (UTC)
Like the users above have said, TK orbing is her whitelighter/witch hybrid power. That may be all she gets for a while... Paige only has two powers that aren't complete whitelighter abilities and they're both hybrid powers P3nathan
Chris knows how to use the non hybrid version of telekinesis as well as TK Orbing same as Wyatt but their first witch power is Telekinesis with a hybrid twist or TK Orbing. I think it requieres more effort for hybrids to use normal telekinesis so that's . I'm not saying that Melinda's powers wont evolve but I think if they do they're going to be similar to her brother's evolution (using normal telekinesis) or maybe like Paige's powers (shielding).Kt111 16:14, January 31, 2012 (UTC)
Im sure she'll get a witchy power but it will probaly have a hybird twist, and the reason Paige probaly didn't come out of the hybird stage was because she was an unexpected introduced charaters and two, The Prue thing holding them back.
Her wiccan power is Telekinesis, which manifested as Telekinetic orbing due to het whitelighter DNA, same as Paige. She might develop other powers at some point, but that's currently unknown. Charmdozo 11:33, February 1, 2012 (UTC)
Anyone said what will be her powers..... XD i said what you want to be! but anyone respond to this question....Excalibur90 20:59, February 1, 2012 (UTC)
Her witch power for know is telekinesis(hybrid style), she might later learn regular telekinesis later but for know her power is TOrbing.She could also posibly gain another power because most of there ancesters had more then one power for example melinda warrens daughter had telekinesis and premonition,ect. She could even inherite a witch power that melinda warren didnt have like when prues past life had Cryokinesis(not a warren power). there is not telling how her powers could grow.sorry about the font
When did she orb? P3nathan
All the half whitelighters who have tel.orbing have and orbing. if someone could orb other people and things can orb and himself. Excalibur90 16:32, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
I don't think we should assume that... in fact the only hybrid I remember orbing themself as a baby was Wyatt. Having a hybrid version of telekinesis doesn't have to mean she can orb herself...or not straight away anyway P3nathan
Paige first orbed and after that she used tel.orbing.The kids has more control powers than the charmed ones because they heve them from the birth and not bound. These two powers come together like P.J has beaming and remote beaming. Excalibur90 16:46, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
But Melinda isn't Paige. I agree with P3nathan, it should only be added when we actually see her use it. Charmdozo 16:50, March 10, 2012 (UTC)
Exactly. I don't really understand how you think the kids are more controlled power-wise than the sisters... Paige was a fully grown witch, so this isn't similar to her situation... although the fact that she could only orb in the same place is a good example of how powers can develop differently in every individual. I basically just don't think we should be putting powers that we haven't seen on the pages and Melinda has only orbed objects up to this point P3nathan
P3nathan has a point. Maybe it wouldve been the same w/ a baby-version of Paige, had her potential witch powers not been bound, I presume. Or different hybrids might develop different powers earlier, like PJ manifesting the cupid side of her magic before the Wiccan and Kat & Tamora manifesting the Wiccan side of their magic before their whitelighter magic.
It's probably the same w/ Melinda as it is w/ Tam & Kat, as she's manifesting her witch powers before her whitelighter powers (which she isn't even supposed to have by the way).126.96.36.199 23:48, May 19, 2013 (UTC)Logan
Melinda can orb it wa never show but it is common sense that a half whitelighter can orb. orbing is the same thing as TO but instead of objects she does it on her self.
And even if she doesnt have orbing she could use telekinetic orbing to orb her self which is realy the same thing
Melinda's Whitelighter Powers Edit
Does anyone think Melinda's children will have whitelighter powers? I know they might inherit the whitelighter gene, but that doesn't necessarily mean they'll have whitelighter abilities. It may be dormant. I just think this because Melinda's whitelighter half was unnaturally activated by the Elders, so it just seems that the whitelighter gene would go back to being dormant with her offspring, due to the fact that she didn't receive those powers naturally, thus wouldn't naturally pass them on to any children she might have. Or maybe she will. I don't know. It'd be up to the writer, I guess. It's probably something that will never be mentioned in the comics, either way.188.8.131.52 00:17, August 14, 2012 (UTC)Logan
You mean aside from Orbing and Hovering. I dont think she is destined to be a whitelighter so i dont think she could receive a power like Healing maybe the rest but I think she received Hovering because of how close it resembles TK Levitation (the whitelighter version).Kt111 (talk) 00:46, August 14, 2012 (UTC)
The elders didnt just give her some whitelighter powers they made her a whitelighter read the comics
The only hybrids that became whitelighters are Paige, Wyatt and Chris. I'm not saying that she wont have orbing or tk orbing but i think that whitelighter powers like healing come only when the hybrid fully embraces the calling of whitelighter. For example Simon Marks was a hybrid but he was not a whitelighter and Paige only became a whitelighter the last two seasons.Kt111 (talk) 15:24, September 18, 2012 (UTC)
Taking leo's last name Edit
In the dark future paragraph its states that
"In this future, her name was Melinda Wyatt, taking her father's surname. Because Leo was still a Whitelighter in this future, Melinda was probably part Whitelighter as well."
When in the episode (that piper goes to the future) does it say melinda take leos last name(Wyatt) it this episode it was never stated her fulll name only her first name(melinda), that should be edite to halliwell not wyatt and piper would have not let her get the last name wyattt cause bad magic feared the name halliwell as piper says for wyatt
I think its an easy assumption to make before we found out Wyatt's name. In the episode I think they made a big deal out of the fact that Leo was living as a normal human despite his status as Whitelighter and his divorce from Piper. Another possibility is the fact that given Phoebe's incarceration and execution it would have been logical for Piper and Leo to try and distance Melinda from the Halliwell last name as a way to keep her safe. Again its only an assumption just like at first people believed Melinda's full name was Prudence Melinda because that was the name Piper had decided on before Wyatt was born. It was later confirmed to be simply Melinda.Kt111 (talk) 00:24, November 9, 2012 (UTC)
However, it was stated somewhere that they would become a new power of three. For them to be close enough, there last name may have to have been similar.
First of all they are not the next power of three. That was an altered prophecy made by the Elders that enhanced the powers of Piper's kids in the off chance they became the next power of three. That was later erased by the Angels of Destiny. Also Piper, Phoebe and Paige proved that it isnt necessary to have the same last name to become the power of three.Kt111 (talk) 20:34, November 9, 2012 (UTC)
I have never understood why so many people are against Wyatt and Chris having a sister. I know that the only time we see Melinda is in the 2009 future when Prue was still alive but everyone knew that Piper would have a daughter eventually. I have read so many things where people say things along the lines of 'Its a shame that Piper had a daughter. It was better with just Wyatt and Chris.' Why do you think that people think this? I for one am glad that Piper had the daughter that she always wanted. Does anyone agree with me?Chawk1993 (talk) 09:38, November 8, 2012 (UTC)
I have also seen those negative remakes about Melinda on a number of different boards. I for one like the fact that each sister will have three kids, but I am not as emotional attached to Mel, as I am to Chris and P.J. Also, keep in mind that characters in comic form are often hard to connect with, especially when you have 10 different artist drawing one character. Superlana (talk) 10:47, November 8, 2012 (UTC)
I like Melinda so far... as much as you can like a drawing of a baby. There was a fanfiction I used to read called Trinity, about Piper's kids and it was very good. I liked the relationship Melinda had with her brothers and vice versa. The one big difference in that fanfiction was that Melinda could freeze and that's what I was most dissapointed with in the comics, that Melinda was a witch-whitelighter... which ended up being null and void as far as the power of 3 goes anyway since the Angels revoked the whole twice-blessed power of three thing. I would have kept her a witch, I think it would have worked fine P3nathan (talk)
I've loved Melinda since Morality Bites, I was disappointed when Wyatt was born instead of her and again disappointed when Melinda turned about to be a whitelighter-witch for plot reasons that were resolved a few issues later. In my own fanfiction, things are a lot different. I think another reason why she may be disliked in the comics is that PJ and the twins are more popular and interesting due to their powers. Next to them, Melinda is a little boring. Charmdozo (talk) 16:40, November 8, 2012 (UTC)
Charmdozo I feel the same way about Wyatt not because of the fact that he was a boy but the level of powers they gave him and the larger than life destiny he had. I think the comics have solved some of those issues but Wyatt will always be my least favorite charmed child. With Melinda I too find her a little boring given that the only "new" power we have seen her use is Hovering and even that we have already seen with Paige. I think that by giving her TK Orbing the writers sort of made her into Paige 2.0 and she should have her own power completely different from what we have seen on other whitelighter hybrids. Its difficult to really connect with a drawing of a character and even harder to connect with a drawing of a baby that's why I think it would be a good idea to create one shots (hopefully 3) about the life of the charmed children as teenagers. I say 3 issues to really develop the cousin's powers and personalities individually as well as making them face typical scenarios of teenage life while struggling with their powers, personal gain temptation and normal teenage problems which is something the charmed ones never had to face.Kt111 (talk) 17:35, November 8, 2012 (UTC)
I actually don't mind young Wyatt, despite his crazy powers... it's adult Wyatt that I have no interest in. I know Wes Ramsey has a big fan base, but in all honesty I found him really boring. I guess it was maybe to have him contrast with his evil 'Chris-Crossed' self as much as possible, but I think in trying to make him really goody-good, they just made him incredibly bland. I suppose it's not fair to compare him to Chris, who we had a full season with, but I found him far more interesting and easier to relate to....maybe I just lean towards the middle child.
Anyway back to Melinda- I think Melinda could be an interesting character as she grows, particularly having two older brothers. They are after all the only set of siblings who will have that set up. I imagine Melinda feeling the need to fight for her independence and showing her overprotective brothers that she can take care of herself. As for her powers, I would have given her a power related to telekinesis rather than TK or TK Orbing, like Astral Projection, Projective Levitation, Psychokinesis, Telematerialisation etc. P3nathan (talk)
I dont mind conventional Telekinesis its the need to give every hybrid the TK Orbing version that really bugs me. I like Astral Projection but as I mentioned in another post I think its more appropriate for one of Phoebe's daughter because of the connection between Premonition and normal Astral Projection that was never fully explored on the show. I think for Melinda the idea of Cloning is a good choice as a way to distance her a little from the normal Orbing even if because of her whitelighter heritage she gains a hybrid version of the power by cloning herself with orbs.Kt111 (talk) 21:07, November 9, 2012 (UTC)
I wouldn't have minded Wyatt's character so much, if they let him at least grow into his destiny. Billie's projection power seemed to take much more concentration, like his should have. And what about his shield? Is that permanent? Chris seemed surprised that Wyatt had a force field, and even Paige and Piper weren't sure if his shield was permanent. I just wish there would have been less of a power jump between the siblings. Speaking on which, I like that Melinda got TK Orbing. After Paige's introduction, it wouldn't make sense for a whitelighter-witch with telekinesis to not have the hybrid version. It also remains as physical proof of the Elder's flaws, something that could develop a relationship between the whole family and the Elder's, not just the sisters. If she could develop convential TK like her brothers remains to be seen, but personally, I think she might. I mean the Elder's brought out her whitelighter side, so her power took on the hybrid version. Without the Elder's intervention, she wouldn't have had any whitelighter twist to her powers. Maybe then, she could've developed some TK-related powers; though now, those branches would be kind of redundant. I just hope Paul develops the cousins' characters well.
