Nigh-Omnipotence is ''Omnipotence with limitations''.The user wields ultimate 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 not others or may simply be able to achieve an almost infinite number of effects across all fields with their near-omnipotent skills.


Specific Examples

Nigh Omnipotent Abilities




  • By definition, the user is in some ways limited. This may be the inability to affect something, do something in particular or being limited to a certain spatio-temporal/dimensional area or concept/subject.

Common Weaknesses:

  • Weak to a certain item, weapon, ability, or concept.
  • Not being able to alter others' free will.
  • Other beings with higher levels of power.
  • Users are not Invincible. Compared to True Omnipotence, the user is only virtually impossible to defeat, as they are some certain instances where the user can be defeated.
  • Despite the unfathomable power they have, users are still infinitely inferior to a truly omnipotent being and can be defeated by one.

Optional Weaknesses:
