** "So far" may be an outdated description. He is stated to have destroyed 6 Universes simply because they upset him - there used to be 18, now there's only 12. [[spoiler: He also doesn't hesitate to wipe out the Future Trunks timeline that's been taken over by Fusion!Zemasu when he sees what has become of it.]] And in the current arc he's ready to reduce the number of universes down to 1, just to have a "prize" for the winner of the All-Universe Martial Arts Tournament he's hosting.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/DigimonAdventureTri'' introduced a guardian of the multiverse. As of part 4 she (it?) has only been "seen" once [[spoiler: possessing Hikari]] and only to give a cryptic warning about the severity the Digital World's infection poses to the entire multiverse. At the end of part 3 [[spoiler: the Digital World is reset in order to eliminate the infection - though part 4 reveals it didn't work.]] Which is what the Guardian warned would need to happen, and was presumably executed by it.

* This is really messed up in MarvelComics. The Watchers sometimes do it, The Timekeepers were doing it in their own sick ways, and The [[TimePolice Time Variance Authority]] once was also protecting the Multiverse like it was its duty. Then The Comicbook/{{Exiles}} came, and turned everything upside down. First we get a mechanism that takes the form of The Timebroker--combined minds of people gathered in order to save The Multiverse. Then a bunch of bug aliens becomes its [[TheManBehindTheMan "man behind the man"]]. And then some godlike couple pops out of nowhere and quickly disappears, to be replaced by a good, female version of Kang. [[spoiler:The latest issue gave us a theory, that changes in the Multiverse also change its guardian.]]

* ''Manga/SailorMoon'' gives us Sailor Cosmos, [[spoiler:the true form of Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon,]] who oddly resembles [[BigGood Usagi/]][[TheHero Sailor Moon]] and watches over the Galaxy Cauldron.

* Vector Prime in ''{{Transformers}}'', under the command of [[{{God}} Primus]].
** There's a good chunk of them, all with different jobs; Primus is the guy who keeps [[EldritchAbomination Unicron]] from destroying the Multiverse, Vector Prime is the [[ClockRoaches Guardian of Time]], Nexus Prime is the guardian of Rarified Energon (used to create new Transformers) and keeper of fellow Firstforge Prima's [[InfinityPlusOneSword Star]] [[{{BFS}} Saber]], and The Fallen used to be the caretaker of the end of the universe ... depending on which continuity family you're currently following.

** It should be noted that--with the exception of Man-Thing--all of these characters are ''self-appointed'' guardians. They debate even with each other who has the right to the position. Generally speaking though the Living Tribunal is the one, true, official holder of this job, being second only to The One-Above-All; IE Kirby/God from the above, who rarely makes appearances.

* ''Series/OnceUponATime'' reimagines the [[Disney/{{Fantasia}} Sorcerer's Apprentice]] as an elderly wizard who oversees the affairs of fictional worlds and makes sure no darkness can overtake them. He goes about this duty in a variety of ways: he guards the Sorcerer's hat and the stockpile of magic it contains, he assigns someone to be the Author to record the most important tales throughout TheMultiverse, and he does whatever he can to stop the the Dark One, a title passed down to dark wizards from the man who defeated and banished the Apprentice's master, [[spoiler:Merlin]].

** In the Marvel UK books the role is taken by Merlin (until he is killed by the effects of Mad Jim Jaspers's battle with the Fury) and Roma of Otherworld. Their appearances in the "main" Marvel books are limited mostly to those written by ChrisClaremont, who has never made any secret that he's a huge fan of the Creator/AlanMoore[=/=]AlanDavis run on ''ComicBook/CaptainBritain'' that introduced them

* DCComics had The Monitor before ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' and Monitors after ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis''. In ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'' [[spoiler: the original Monitor turned into a MultiversalConqueror, and The Monitors were in fact preying on the Multiverse, and were fired by one of them, who was turned into a human.]] In summary, they are ''really bad'' at this.

** The Phoenix from ComicBook/{{X-Men}} also serves this function in an official capacity; specifically, it guards the M'Krann Crystal, which amongst other things is a gateway to the multiverse. The most common holder of the power of the Phoenix Force is of course Jean Grey, who while using it once held an entire, broken universe ''in her hands'' and fixed it ''with her mind''.
