*** 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.

* Though the details are a bit sketchy, some remarks in Creator/HPLovecraft's ''The Whisperer in Darkness'' suggest that the Mi-go could be here, since they've mastered interdimensional travel and apparently rule entire galaxies in their native dimensions.

* The Therians from AT-43 can, at the very least, count as this. They are mentioned as having Dyson Shell'd the entire Milky Way galaxy. However, the army book also mentions that they had spread across the whole universe. Assuming this to be true, then it could be possible that the Therians are actually Type IV.

*** In the new series, we are introduced to the final work of the ancient Gallifreyans, "The Moment." Described as a "galaxy-eater", it was so advanced and powerful, it actually became sentient and according to the legends (shown to be true), it developed a ''conscience'', producing an interface 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 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. 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).

Added DiffLines:

*** Possibly adding weight to the assertion of how powerful the Daleks were, the renewed Dalek Empire under Davros in the finale of Season 4 is definitely within striking distance of the Time Lords: capable of moving entire planets through time and space in the blink of an eye and keep them intact, putting them one second out of phase with the rest of the universe, operating a base that would give the Death Star inadequacy issues, and being fully capable of ''wiping out the entire multiverse.''

** As revealed in the [[EasterEgg Data Pads]] of ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', the ability of the Covenant to 'glass' planets is propaganda devised by a [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness group of human-created artificial intelligences]]. True, the Covenant COULD turn an entire planet into a hunk of glass...provided they had millennia to do so. However, the thought of an alien empire 'glassing' entire colonies certainly galvanized humanity to fight back.
