"I have walked across the surface of the sun, I have witnessed events so tiny and so fast they can hardly be said to have occurred at all, but you are just a man, the worlds smartest man poses no more threat to me than does it's smartest termite."
― Doctor Manhattan (Watchmen)

User can perceive, understand and control all aspects of existence; they can freely bend and shape all types of matter, energy, force, etc., including the space-time continuum, to any extent on an epic scale and near-infinite scope.

Advanced users may bend the very laws of reality, or rewrite them to any extent. For example:

  • The Law of Conservation to create or erase completely phenomena from nothing (including creating new phenomena with unique properties).
  • The Law of Non-Contradiction to allow the simultaneous coexistence of difference states (as existing and not existing simultaneously).
  • The Law of Causality to redefine which cause triggers which effect.

Unlike most Almighty abilities, Physical Godhood emphasizes skill rather than power: perception equals understanding, and understanding equals control.










  • User is only virtually omnipotent.
  • May not have Absolute Intelligence.
  • May have problems with supernatural/magical/illogical forces.
  • Immeasurable superiority may lead to ever-growing indifference and loneliness.
    • Durably fitting in and developing a balanced personality may prove the user's greatest challenge.
