* In the ''FanficPonyPOVSeries'', [[TopGod the Elders]] are this trope. Entropy erasing her husband Havoc from existence then him ''willing himself back into it'' is a common occurrence. The Windigos were ''drops of Entropy's blood'' and the Fires of Friendship that destroyed them was a mere fraction of Fauna Luster's might called down by the founders. Entropy will ''eat the universe'' when it dies of Heat Death one day. To put this in perspective: [[RealityWarper Discord]] is ''scared to death'' of actually having to face his father and will ''not'' break his word if he swore on Entropy's name because he's that scared of clopping her off. This, however, is also the reason they don't interfere directly [[GodzillaThreshold unless absolutely needed]]: their power is so enormous ''one'' of them truly entering the universe would destroy it from their mere arrival. An Avatar of Havoc's strong enough to kill Discord would destroy Equestria's ''entire east coast'' just by manifesting. So they prefer to help indirectly.

A character that is all-powerful. Either literally omnipotent, or are simply so powerful that they're virtually omnipotent within the context of the story.
to:
{{Reality Warper}}s are capable of modifying the laws of causality around themselves, but take that to another level wherein there is no limit or range to their reality warp, extending to all of existence itself, and you have the Omnipotent: A character that is all-powerful. Either literally omnipotent, or are simply so powerful that they're virtually omnipotent within the context of the story.

The most powerful [[RealityWarper Reality Warpers]] tend to exhibit this. Combine this with a strong Ego, and you get AGodAmI (which may or not be completely true). Combine it with {{Cloudcuckoolander}} tendencies, and you may have a GreatGazoo, or worse, a MadGod.

Compare TheOmniscient and TheOmnipresent, who often, but not always, overlap with this trope. [[CosmicEntity More powerful cosmic entities]] are often omnipotent as well. If they don't actually do anything, they're an AllPowerfulBystander.

* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', what that can be called "God" in this world, [[spoiler:the Idea of Evil]], has specialized omnipotence. To elaborate, [[spoiler:the Idea of Evil is created from the [[TheHeartless Collective Unconscious]], as an answer to humanity's near-universal mindset of "every suffering has a reason".

Within this context, the Idea can do whatever it wants so long as it fulfills humanity's collective desire.]] Despite this, it remains distant from the story, and [[spoiler:creates [[EldritchAbomination the Godhand]], former human god-like beings, to bring suffering for humanity]].

* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', the [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Truth]] blurs the line between nigh-omnipotence and specialized omnipotence. In one hand, he repeatedly says that he is the personification of ''everything'' ("I am the world. I am the universe. I am God. I am me. And I am YOU.") On the other hand, this can be interpreted as personification of truth: ("This world consists of truth, and that is I.") Either way, he qualifies.

* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'', the Great Will (what God is called here), plays with the trope. In most games, he is nigh-omnipotent god. However, this doesn't prevent him from being defeated by the player. In some games, such as ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney'' and ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'', Great Will averts this trope entirely. ** Also, Lucifer, while in most games he is a mere FallenAngel nowhere as powerful as Great Will, in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'' he becomes TheAntiGod, capable of matching Great Will in almost every aspect [[spoiler:and with our help, possibly win against him]]. ** In ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2'', Polaris [[spoiler:or anybody who becomes the Administrator of [[AkashicRecords Akasha]], for that matter]], as well as Canopus in the UpdatedRerelease, is basically Great Will's Expy. ** In ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'', Great Will is replaced by Brahman. * In ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' series, the various [[TheHeartless beings coming from the Collective Unconscious]], being [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Truth]] blurs the line between nigh-omnipotence and personifications]] of various aspects of humanity, all have specialized omnipotence.

* ''VisualNovel/{{Demonbane}}'' has more than a few examples, especially in the prequel novel. None is absolutely omnipotent, but a few come ''dangerously'' close. [[GreaterScopeVillain Azathoth]] is only not absolute because of the fact that he can be (and is currently) sealed, and even then he still generates countless universes that make up the multiverse. [[BigBad Nyarlathotep]], being the [[AnthropomorphicPersonification embodiment of the will]] of [[EldritchAbomination Outer Gods]] (including Azathoth), is only marginally less powerful than Azathoth, capable of ret-conning ''two'' nigh-omnipotent beings (that a while ago was fighting each other, an eternal stalemate that slowly consumes the multiverse), out of existence. ** The ones closest to omnipotent is [[spoiler:Nyarlathotep]] and [[spoiler:the hidden [[spoiler:hidden forms of the titular mecha]]. mecha]], "War God" and "Elder God" [[spoiler:Demonbane]] may very well be absolutely omnipotent. When the War God appears, it destroys the universe it is summoned in ''and collides with the multiverse'' with '''its sheer size''', and capable of manipulating and weaponizing universes. It is so powerful that Nyarlathotep tries to TimeTravel to prevent its summoning, but it only responds by transforming into the Elder God. Which [[CurbStompBattle casually beats]] Nyarlathotep, before summoning copies of its previous form (read: the War God) from every reality that has existed, currently exist, will exist, and '''''NEVER''''' existed, just to demonstrate its power. If that's not omnipotent I don't know what is.
