"Open your eyes, you've been stripped of power, stripped of godhood your whole life. There is nothing in this world worth fighting for!"
― The Enigma TNG - God Complex

Also Called

  • Apotheosis Removal
  • De-Divinization
  • Godhood Stripping/Nullification

The user can strip deities of their divinity, turning them into mortal beings. Despite this, some beings that have fallen victim to this ability may still have power but simply lose their divine aspects while others may be completely powerless.




  • Doesn't affect a Supreme Being.
  • Users of Deification may be able to re-ascend the target.
  • Some deities are too powerful to have their divinity removed.
