"Everything is what I say it is! If I decide that granite is squeezably soft, it is! If I decide that cows have wings, they do! To put it another way, cows do not have wings because I don't want them to! My imagination and reality are virtually indistinguishable! All existence, except me, might as well be a figment of my imagination! Maybe it is! I might have just dreamed all this up, including wingless cows! But then, the whole point is that it makes no difference!"
― The Beyonder (Marvel Comics)

The power to be nearly all-powerful. Lesser version of Omnipotence.

Also Called

  • Almost Absolute/Almighty/All-Powerful/Beyond-All/Ultimate/Supreme Power
  • Defective/Flawed/Imperfect/Limited/Questionable/Restricted/Semi/Virtual Omnipotence
  • Nearly Infinite/Boundless/Limitless/Unlimited Power
  • Near Absolute/Infinite/Limitless Power

Capabilities

Users wield supreme power, but they have some form of limitation/weakness that limits them from being truly omnipotent. They may be absolute in specific fields or may achieve an almost infinite number of effects across all fields with their near-omnipotent skills.

Despite being limited, the user still possesses an unimaginable level of power at their will. Depending on the series, the user's power may or may not backfire or drive them insane. Nigh-Omnipotence has various types: Some users are created outright with it and can innately learn their powers like breathing. Some users are bestowed and require extra training to know fully about it. Some users may be sealed/fused with it and need to realize what their power is, and some users gain this by supernatural means and can master this with ease.

Morality of Nigh-Omnipotence is free than most, if not all, insane abilities. Also, Nigh-Omnipotence is not well-demonstrated in fictional stories, movies, or TV series. This way, Nigh-Omnipotent beings can be good, evil, neutral, hero, villain, anti-hero, anti-villain, criminal, trickster, mad scientist, black magician, chaotic, tyrant, madman, psychopath, or anything else imaginable. Any morality is possible as long as the ability is limited to true omnipotence.

Nigh-Omnipotence and Omnipotence are almost similar in every way. Between the two, one is a state of limitless power and the other a state of near-limitless power.

It ranges from the lowest level to the highest level: some users can do anything but are limited to certain spatial/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 or can't affect something. No matter how powerful the user is, they will always be limited to certain exceptions.

While the user isn't truly omnipotent, they still possess many high-end abilities including but not limited to: Absolute Force Manipulation, Absolute Psionics, Absolute Will, Nigh-Complete Arsenal, Psionic Godhood, Physical Godhood, Nigh-Absolute Immortality, Nigh-Omnipresence, Nigh-Omniscience, Omniverse Manipulation and Reality Warping. The user can achieve unimaginable effects and can possess almost unlimited power.

In short, the user is almost all-powerful and nearly invincible.
