"Didn't they tell you, Jack? It's great being a Guardian! But there's a catch. If enough kids stop believing, everything your friends protect - wonder, hopes, and dreams - it all goes away. And little by little, so do they."
― Pitch Black explaining the Guardians' powers to Jack (Rise of the Guardians)

The power to be absolutely immortal as long as the concept they are attuned to exists. Variation of Absolute Immortality and Reliant Immortality.

Capabilities

The user is truly immortal as their existence is tied to a certain concept. As long as that concept exists, the user will never truly die in any way.

Applications

Associations

Limitations

  • User can still go through immense levels of mental trauma despite the concept being active.
  • User can be weakened or constrained.
