|| '''Hyper Weight: 4''' || These characters typically can [[PersonOfMassDestruction cause]], stop, or reverse large scale disasters, [[BeyondTheImpossible break the laws of]] or [[RealityWarper flat out warp physics]] with their powers. A protagonist of this weight (or higher) risks becoming a GodModeSue, because their abilities tend to be [[StoryBreakerPower story-breaking]], making it difficult to give them a [[HowToStopTheDeusExMachina plausible challenge.]] That said, a protagonist at this weight can have engaging adventures, the author just has to be careful to scale the SlidingScaleOfVillainThreat accordingly. || PersonOfMassDestruction, FlyingBrick, WeatherManipulation, TheArchmage ||

|| '''World Weight: 5''' || These characters have abilities that can affect entire worlds (such as Earth or others comparable to it in size) either [[WorldHealingWave positively]] or [[WorldWreckingWave negatively]], or may even be a [[MotherNature manifestation of a planet]], [[GaiasVengeance with all that implies]]. {{Reality Warper}}s powerful enough to create or alter such worlds also go here. Many villains end up here, especially if they're trying to TakeOverTheWorld or are [[OmnicidalManiac Omnicidal Maniacs]], though you will find their opposite in TheMessiah. || WorldWreckingWave, WorldHealingWave, EarthShatteringKaboom, PhysicalGod ||

|| '''Abnormal Weight: 2''' || Characters in this weight class have an ability, trait, or talent that is supernatural or superhuman, but are otherwise comparable to normal humans. However, their abilities are generally [[ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman very specific]] and [[CripplingOverspecialization limited]] and [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway may be useless in some situations]], rendering the characters just as helpless as normal un-powered humans. Usually, characters of this type lack the RequiredSecondaryPowers to optimize or protect themselves from their own powers. Perhaps their only powers are to cancel [[AntiMagic other]] [[PowerNullifier powers]]. Most of the time, their ability [[MugglesDoItBetter is something we can mimic or even surpass]] using common science or low-grade [[{{Cyborg}} cybernetics]]. Muggles and Irons that are [[BeastMan Beast Men]] or [[{{Cyborg}} Cyborgs]] may also end up here. || {{Transhuman}}, BeastMan, AntiMagic / PowerNullifier, SinglePowerSuperheroes, IneptMage ||

|| '''Author Weight: 7''' || Characters in this weight class are absolutely [[TheOmnipotent Omnipotent]] and likely [[TheOmniscient Omniscient]]. They are capable of [[ThePowerOfCreation exerting their will on all of reality]] and the entire universe ([[TheMultiverse or even the totality of the multiverse]]) or [[DeusExMachina even the plot itself]] without exception. [[BecauseDestinySaysSo Destiny]]/[[YouCantFightFate Fate]] is their play-thing. They [[CompleteImmortality cannot be killed/destroyed by any means]]. Any limits they have are self-imposed. While this weight is almost always reserved for {{God}}, the Author, and the GameMaster, characters ''can'' be written for at this level. Just don't expect it to be a normal story. As a result, a character at this level is fairly rare. || AuthorPowers, TheOmnipotent, {{God}}, MemeticBadass, GameMaster ||

|| '''Iron Weight: 1''' || These characters are MadeOfIron {{Badass Normal}}s who can push the upper limits of what a human is capable of. They may have gotten TrainingFromHell, or are experts at [[ThisIndexKnowsKungFu martial arts]], GoodOldFisticuffs, GunKata, LeParkour, [[ImprobableWeaponUser Improbable Weapon Usage]] and the like, or is part of the RedShirtArmy. Basically, this is a character anyone could become, bar the setting. However, note that characters don't need to be humans to be put here. This weight is also for any natural wildlife that could take down an unarmed human single-handedly. || BadassNormal, ActionHero, RealLifeSuperPowers, WorldsStrongestMan, WorldsBestWarrior, BearsAreBadNews ||

|| '''Muggle Weight: 0''' || These characters are not significantly stronger or weaker than normal humans, and tend to be {{Innocent Bystander}}s and (you guessed it) {{Muggle}}s. Though not necessarily humans, they should be close to normal people in ability. || ActionSurvivor, UnfazedEveryman, NonActionGuy ||

|| '''Super Weight: 3''' || Characters in this weight class can no longer be considered normal.
