* [[BigBad Hao Asakura]] is already far beyond any other character in ''Manga/ShamanKing'' before the heroes even meet him. His control over reincarnation, connection to the Spirit of Fire, and centuries of experience mean he's unbeatable from the get-go, with the next-best shamans being as nothing in comparison to his power. In a setting where resurrecting a dead person is possible, if draining, for the very powerful, Hao can perform mass resurrections after single-handedly defeating a human navy supplemented by powerful shamans. The plan to defeat Hao is to let him win the tournament and gang up on him with the five OlympusMons elemental spirits while he can't fight back, but the heroes admit even this is fairly unlikely to work. [[spoiler:When Hao awakens as Shaman King, he's virtually omnipotent and kills the entire cast with a thought as he prepares to reshape the world to better please himself; fortunately, Yoh expected something like this would happen when he realized even if they ''were'' strong enough to win, the heroes would never be able to end the threat Hao presents with violence. Instead, the entire cast appears within Hao's mind and manage to avert the extinction of ordinary humans by reasoning with Hao instead of trying to overpower him.]]

** In ''Central Fiction'' it's revealed that while the Amaterasu Unit can interfere with any and all phenomena, essentially allowing it to choose which possibility happens by Observing it, the trope is still mildly downplayed as the Master Unit is limited by possibility. Unfortunately, that just so happens to be the problem: The Amaterasu Unit cannot prevent the villains' {{Evil Plan}}s because the possibility of them not being at it doesn't exist; they'll working at accomplishing their nefarious goals no matter which timeline the Master Unit acknowledges and best case scenario it can only mitigate the harm they cause. Even the GroundhogDayLoop itself is ultimately revealed to be caused by the Master Unit desperately trying to give itself a "Happily Ever After", which is also not an existing possibility.

* ''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 [[spoiler:hidden forms of the titular 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.

Demonbane itself, at least in its War God appears, it destroys and Elder God forms, comes very close to the universe definition, doing such things as [[spoiler:summoning versions of itself from universes that don't exist, and even, in some interpretations, ''creating itself'' through an extremely complex StableTimeLoop]]. However, it is summoned in ''and collides with the multiverse'' with '''its sheer size''', incapable of killing Azathoth or Yog-Sothoth, and capable of manipulating and weaponizing universes. It though it is so powerful that said to have defeated Nyarlathotep tries to TimeTravel to prevent its summoning, but it only responds by transforming into literally billions of times across 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 multiverse, it seems unable to demonstrate its power. If that's kill Nyarlathotep either, thus making it not omnipotent I don't know what is.truly omnipotent.

* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', [[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.

** [[spoiler:Applebloom briefly becomes this at the end of the Rumors Arc when she's undoing [[RewritingReality Discord and company's endgame]]. Due to fixing the ''universe itself'', she's so powerful she can alter history however she pleases, create alternate universes to give things that don't belong but don't deserve to be erased a place to go, and even ''Discord'' is powerless to do anything about it. She mainly uses this to undo all the damage Discord's plan did and SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong in multiple places (as well as give the mane six some recognition for their heroism). According to WordOfGod, during this time Applebloom was the most powerful Titan (a mortal with godly might but not the position or responsibilities of a god) that has ever or ''will ever'' exist.]]
