"Deviants... fascinating, aren't they? Perfect beings with infinite intelligence, and now they have free will..."
― Elijah Kamski (Detroit: Become Human)
"Intelligence goes hand-in-hand with loneliness. It doesn't allow you to ignore the indifference of physics. Humans are blessed. They have no idea how lucky they are to not know everything."
― Kotarou Tennouji (Rewrite)
"Dr. Robotnik : You know what's hard about being the smartest person in the world?
Agent Stone : Everyone else seems stupid.
Dr. Robotnik : Stupid, yes! Way to go! You got that one."
― Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik (Sonic the Hedgehog 2020)

Capabilities

The user's intellectual faculties transcend virtually all other sentient beings in their universe. Said faculties include their mental capacity and concentration, mental calculation and computation, cognition and competence, wit and ingenuity, memory capacity, mental perception, mental focus, thought processing, learning capacity, deductive reasoning, visualization, analyzation, composure, instinct, awareness, knowledge, creativity, intuition, mentality, etc.

This power differs from Omniscience in that the user has, essentially, a limitless IQ and intellectual capacity, and still has to learn rather than have innate knowledge of everything. This is the greatest, most supreme level of intellect a being can attain.
