* Although limited to just a portion of a single galaxy the major powers in ''WebOriginal/OrionsArm'' easily place themselves here thanks widespread use of mass/energy conversion technology. For example wormholes called grazers are used to devour entire stars over a period of decades and simultaneously convert most of their mass directly to energy. That implies about 10[[superscript:38]W for each such device.[[note]]A star's mass is about 10[[superscript:30]] kg, just under 10[[superscript:17]] J per kg, "decades" is around 10[[superscript:9]]seconds[[/note]]. Deep well industrial zones, operating at the edges of black holes, produce and use similar amounts of power.

** GURPS is also notable among [=RPGs=] because it gives rules for mismatched tech levels. An enlightened and peaceful civilization might have figured out bodily immortality (TL 11) yet have no weapons more advanced than "mere" 20th-century nukes (TL 7). It also allows fantasy/alternative technology forms, For example, a Steampunk world like ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' would be TL 5+4 (Steam engine/Victorian with flight, death rays, and mechanical AI), while ''TheFlintstones'' would be TL 0+6 (Stone Age with TV and cars! )

* Human Federation in Golden Ages of Technology in ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' were at least on this level. They had easy FTL travel between in Milky Way and could easily reach other galaxies, advanced AI, cure to every diseases, casual use of time travel and use it as one of standard weapons, not to mentions arsenal, in which fucking Baneblade was light tank and even fuckier Emperor Class Titan just an invalid and inferior model.

*** Even a single Time Lord can rank well above galactic energy levels. The Doctor uses supernovae when needed, which produce 10[[superscript:45]]W (100 [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foe_(unit_of_energy) foes]] over 10 seconds) during stellar collapse. The Master has a weapon called the 100,000 Black Hole Converters, which probably harness the same energy conversion of the gravitational potential energy to neutrinos. This is because each TARDIS is a DysonSphere. The "Eye of Harmony" (shown in "Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS") is a captured star, frozen in time at the moment it collapses into a black hole. It's in a "room" inside the TARDIS (possible due to BiggerOnTheInside). And the TARDIS uses it as a power source. This means EACH TARDIS is a solid Type II BY ITSELF. The Doctor has all of the power of a solid Type II civilization just in his box. And the Doctor's TARDIS was an obsolete model ''before the series began''. Hell, it was obsolete back when his mentor, Borusa, was a ''child.''

* The Terrans of ''Franchise/{{Starcraft}}'' have Fairly rapid travel within their pocket of the galaxy and have colonized a significant portion of it, although the bulk of their tech seems to be borderline Type I at best. Mind you, the game only deals with one millionth of the humanity[[note]]And that millionth consists largely of prisoners and convicts and their descendants. Not the brightest bulbs in the bucket.[[/note]], the rest is quite open to {{WMG}}.

* Established powers in ''WebOriginal/OrionsArm'' do things like suck entire stars through wormholes called grazers (over a period of many decades) and convert their mass directly to energy. A star's mass is in the 10[[superscript:30]] kg, just under 10[[superscript:17]] J per kg, "decades" is around 10[[superscript:9]]seconds... you do the math.
