Mostly found in Zaun Crest icon.png Zaun, where chemical research is unfettered by restrictions of law, Chemical Alterations can be found in abundance. Many Zaunites were chemically altered later in their lives, giving them superhuman abilities. These abilities can be one or more of the following: superhuman strength, superhuman speed, heightened senses, etc. However, unlike magical alterations, there are some glaring flaws in this kind of alteration, mainly tolls taken on one's mental state. Other symptoms can range from one's skin color changing to the loss of hair.

Some of these chemicals are also illegally sold as drugs. An unlawful synthesis called "Shimmer" by Zaun's rebellious youth is a corrosive techmaturgical waste substance which stimulates intense emotions in its subject when applied by injecting, inhaling or consuming; taking Shimmer for a long time can lead to super strength, increased speed, and wound regeneration. Though frequent application of the caustic glop can result in progressive degeneration of the skin and muscle tissue. If lots and lots of Shimmer is used, one who is about to die from wounds could even be saved (but would have permanent changes to their body), such as when Jinx Jinx is injected with Shimmer and regenerates after a serious injury.
