"You think me an alien... an "other"... But I am of the substance of this universe, and I walked here long before you or even Mata Nui himself."
― Tren Krom (Bionicle)
"We call them Outsiders because they’re outside anything we can understand or accept: outside morality, or sanity, maybe even Life or Death."
― John Taylor (Nightside)

The ability to be completely distinct from everything. Sub-power of Self Origin Manipulation. Ultimate expression of Freedom and Singularity. Not to be confused with Omnilock. Opposite to Unity.

Also Called

  • Absolute Otherness
  • Divergence
  • Omniversal Distinction
  • Perfect Singularity
  • Perpetual Deviance
  • Un-Affinity
  • Un-Unity
  • Variant Aspect
  • Cosmic/Existential Otherness Physiology


The user possesses an essence that is absolute in its otherness and entirely exclusive to their nature alone. They are able to distinguish themselves from everything, everywhere, everywhen, and everyhow, without any exception.

The reason for this ungodly disposition lies with their ability to forgo every physical/metaphysical concept, law, and substance made (or will be made) by anyone or anything (most of all by a supreme panentheistic being) and remain independent of them. Though others have the ability to maintain a subjective means to affect or interact with the rest of the universe, most are not, and thus endure an existence of eternal limbo.

Their differences notwithstanding, all users share only this similarity and nothing more - so far removed from the rest of existence, their essence makes for a completely unique state of being; one that has never existed before and will never exist again. Never to be mirrored nor encompassed by anyone or anything, forever locked in perpetual defiance to all, giving new meaning to the word - Ungodly.




  • May be vulnerable to Unity.
  • Users of Almighty Replication and Existence Replication may be able replicate certain aspects of the user.
  • Some users become so far removed from the rest of existence that they aren't able to interact with anything in it.
  • Omniscient users will still understand everything about the being.
  • Omnipotence can encompass and defeat it.
