"Reality has exiled me. I am no longer bound by its laws."
― Ixidor, Reality Sculptor (Magic: The Gathering)
"Reality is often disappointing. That is, it was. Now, reality can be whatever I want."
― Thanos (Avengers: Infinity War)
"I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW YOU CAN *DO* THESE THINGS!!"
― Charlie The Unicorn

The power to manipulate reality. Form/Expression of Nigh Omnipotence. Opposite of Unreality Manipulation.

Also Called

  • Actuality Manipulation
  • Elseworld Creation (Arrowverse)
  • Essokinesis/Ontokinesis/Realitokinesis
  • Existential State Manipulation
  • Objective Reality Distortion
  • Objective Manipulation/Warping
  • Reality Alteration/Bending/Control/Distortion/Manipulation/Overwriting (SCP Foundation)

Capabilities

Users can create, shape, and manipulate reality, the sum or aggregate of all that is real or existent within a system, just by thinking about it; while weaker users are limited to what is already considered "real," stronger ones can make changes from nothing. Depending on the power of a reality warper, they may alter something as tangible as physics and the universe to something inconceivable like logic.

The way the power actually works is when the user controls the very existential state of anything depending on their proficiency, regardless of whether or not the entity in question is an object or subject, among so many or most others depending on their power scale. It can range from transmogrifying objects or subjects into something different, altering the laws of reality, logic, and physics, creating things out of thin air, to even outright erasing it on the spot.

Any and all scientific or natural laws such as biology, causality, physics, or even time, – they no longer apply to the user. Yes, for all intents and purposes, a Reality Warper can literally do anything they want. Anything.

The key issue here is how far one can take this. A character with a mild form of this power may be able to fly by negating the effect of gravity on himself/herself. A major case of this may be able to hiccup and accidentally tear the space-time continuum. High-end Reality Warpers tend to be related to the setting itself, such as being one of the sentient cosmic laws. For the really high-end ones, see The Omnipotent.

Running into characters with such powers can be incredibly chancy. Arguing with the more powerful ones may well be futile, especially since they can literally reject your reality and substitute their own.

Application (General)

Techniques

Variations

Power Level

  • Basic-Level Users
    • Users of this stage cannot entirely break the laws of physics, but they can bend them, such as running on vertical walls. They are the weakest of reality warpers, being severely limited, and are debatable to being called "Reality Warpers".
  • Advanced-Level Users
    • Users of this can mimic animated characters. Users of this level of power can perform a seemingly impossible feat (e.g. producing a mallet out of thin air). Some may be able to impose their laws onto others.
  • Expert-Level Users
    • Users of this power level are a very powerful force to be reckoned with. They can manipulate physics, allowing them to not only bend but even break the laws of physics. Being the general form of reality warper, 'Physics Manipulators' can invent their physical laws and impose them on the rest of the universe.
  • Master-Level Users
    • Users of this power level are a very powerful beings. They can control the very rules of logic and reason to perform feats that are not only impossible but also inconceivable. They are so powerful, they may appear to be nigh omnipotent.
  • Ultimate-Level Users
    • These are the strongest among other reality warpers. Users in this category possess unfathomable power beyond any reason, logic and understanding. These kind of reality warpers are generally the ultimate being or strongest being of their verse as they are so powerful, they can do anything no matter how impossible, since their reality overrides any other.

Limitations

Universal Differences

  • In Marvel Comics, reality manipulators affect the atomic structure of matter as well as energy (much like all kinds of Matter Manipulating powers) to affect reality; non-Marvel Comics basis actually revolves around altering the existential state of things. This is just because Marvel has their own subjective view of how this power might be used.
