* [[ComicBook/GreenLantern The Guardians of the Universe]] could be type four if not for their personal Prime Directive. When all of their power was bound within a single being, he was able to unravel the entire universe from the beginning of time to the end and restart the big bang.

* The Tar-Aiym and Hur'rikku from the ''HumanxCommonwealth'' series developed superweapons that, respectively, could annihilate an entire star system by broadcasting gravity waves through [[SubspaceOrHyperspace subspace]], and could punch a hole into AnotherDimension to release an anticollapsar (or "white hole") as massive as an entire galaxy. While that sounds awfully impressive, there isn't enough real physics there to get them into a ballpark. The Xunca have them beat hands-down, however, at one point in their existence being capable of transporting an entire galactic civilization to an alternate dimension and turning a galactic supercluster ''into a superweapon''.

** Their ultimate weapon (in the new series), "The Moment," was described as a "galaxy-eater" and the Time Lords were so scared of it that they actually gave it a sentient, telepathic user interface complete with a ''conscience''. The Moment doesn't ''want'' to be used, and anyone intending to do so must face its judgment. It can also move people around through time (and even through time-locked events) with ease. It's even neatly portable, being roughly the size of a shoebox (although seeing as it's Time Lord technology it may very well be much BiggerOnTheInside).

** Their ultimate weapon (in In the new series), series though, we are introduced to the final work of the ancient Gallifreyans, "The Moment," was described Moment." Described as a "galaxy-eater" "galaxy-eater," it was so advanced and the Time Lords were so scared of powerful, it that they actually gave became sentient and according to the legends (and shown to be true), it developed a sentient, telepathic user ''conscience'', producing an interface complete and taking the shape of someone its wielder would know (past, present or future) in order to communicate with them. The Time Lord General fully points out how does one use a ''conscience''.weapon of ultimate destruction when it can stand in judgment of you. The Moment doesn't ''want'' to be used, and anyone intending to do so must face its judgment. It can also move people around through time (and even through time-locked events) with ease.

* The [[StarfishAliens Incubators]] of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' are this, though they don't usually look it [[spoiler:- their technology is capable of reversing the process of entropic decay on a universal scale, breaking the Second Law of Thermodynamics in half in the process]]. One fairly conservative estimate placed the needed output of the average Grief Seed at 3.3 x 10[[superscript:52]] J. They collect these regularly. As of TheMovie, they can even ensnare [[spoiler: Madoka, herself a [[ThePowersThatBe Type-V entity capable of universal-scale revision]]]]. They [[DemotedToDragon aren't as lucky]] against GreaterScopeVillain [[spoiler: [[ProtagonistJourneyToVillain Homura]]]], though.

* The unseen aliens in TheSpaceOdysseySeries have the ability to make stars. This might indicate mid-level Type II power use, depending on just how they go about it.
