"Ignorance isn't bliss, it is a dangerous weakness. Those who can learn, understand and exploit knowledge will prosper and thrive. Fools who chose to deny knowledge for their own convenience will be the first to die without even knowing why."
― Nagumo Hajime (Arifureta Sekai Saikyou)
"Knowledge is the most democratic source of power."
― Alvin Toffler

Also Called

  • Encyclopedic Intelligence
  • Innate Information/Knowledge


The user possesses a vast amount of information and knowledge on all things, they have innate encyclopedic knowledge of science, the universe, magic, psionics, mechanics/technology, literature, history, etc. All information and knowledge whether natural or supernatural can be fully understood with this ability. As the knowledge is innate, no study or experience is necessary.

The user can acquire more knowledge by supernatural means (magic, psionics, etc.) to add to their already vast knowledge. The amount and the limit of knowledge possessed varies by user: a low level user may only have mastery of a single field whereas a high level user may achieve Cosmic Awareness, Hyper-Cosmic Awareness or even Nigh Omniscience.




  • The user may not have the necessary intelligence to use the knowledge effectively.
  • Knowledge doesn't necessarily equal skill or experience.
