Capabilities

Users wield Supreme power, but they have some form of limitation/weakness that limits their power and prevents them from gaining true omnipotence. They may be absolute on specific fields and or may simply be able to achieve an almost infinite number of effects across all fields with their near-omnipotent skills.

Despite being limited, the user still possess unimaginable level of power fully at their will. All of the power the user possess won't backfire or drive them insane (depending on actual series). Nigh-Omnipotence has various types: Some users are created outright with it and can innately learn their powers like breathing. Some users are bestowed with it and requires extra training to know fully about it. Some users may be sealed/fused with it and just need to realise what their power is.

It ranges from the lowest level to highest levels such as some users can do anything but is limited to certain spatio/temporal/dimensional areas, other users are absolutely invincible, immortal, invulnerable and have no weaknesses but they can't do something in a particular way, have limited powers and can't effect something. No matter how powerful the user is, they may always stay limited to certain things.

While not being truly omnipotent, the user still possess most unlimited-scale abilities. The user can achieve unimaginable effects and can possess almost unlimited power like, for example, Absolute Psionics, Reality Warping, Nigh-Complete Arsenal, Psionic Godhood, Physical Godhood, Absolute Force Manipulation, Omniverse Manipulation and Absolute Will. They also possess abilities like Nigh-Omniscience, Nigh-Omnipresence and Nigh-Absolute Immortality.

All in One, The user is almost all-powerful and nearly invincible.

Applications

Specific Examples

Nigh-Omnipotent Abilities

Power Levels

  • Level 1: Users wield nigh-omnipotence via objects/weapons/items that holds nearly unlimited power. These users are almost invincible with their only limitation being that of the object they hold (and usually their arrogance).
  • Level 2: Users become nearly all-powerful and virtually invincible by transcending themselves into a higher state of power. These users can do almost anything and are limited to a higher level of beings as they can be defeated by that being.
  • Level 3: Users are bestowed with nigh-omnipotence via certain almighty forces or by other means that possess limitless powers. These users possess decent control over reality, space-time, existence and anything else. They are only limited by that force and only a higher being can negate the force, thus rendering them powerless. They may have only one or two weakness based on their particular nature.
  • Level 4: Users are the most powerful reality warpers who are nigh-omnipotent from the very beginnings of their powers. They can affect reality on an essentially limitless level and control anything, allowing them to achieve anything yet limited by their natural weaknesses.
  • Level 5: Users who are created with nigh-omnipotence by a Supreme Being. They can do anything easily and can warp existence beyond their own realm. They are not bound to any rules or laws, allowing them to overcome all of their limitations and weaknesses. They are only limited by their creator(s) and certain almighty laws. Only their creators can defeat them and limit/effect/manipulate/negate their powers. Despite this, they are the most powerful beings in their own realms. They are truly the most powerful-and-strongest nigh-omnipotent beings across all of existence and beyond. This level of nigh-omnipotence could be considered near a Ultipotent level of power due to the amount of power and control over that power.
