Is the event in DW Season 5 finales REALLY a Z-3? Cyberman's comment about how "All universes will be deleted" seems to be here to show that it's Z and not just an ordinary X-4/5. Than we see that objest and events are erased from time, indicating that it's at least Z-2 (they don't exist in any meaningful state and never did, as the page says), but I don't understan how this line confirms Z-3. Maybe I'm just sleepy and not getting something?

I\'m with you there. \"All universes will be deleted\" makes it Z-2, not Z-1, but Z-3 is a whole new level of apocalypse.

All Just A Dream is more Z-3 than this!

most of these verses don't even have an 'omniverse' to kill, several (Like DBGT) don't even have a multiverse.

I removed the Dragon Ball bit, but honestly this page and the multiversal destruction one are just a mess.

The only fictions that even have a proven Omniverse are Marvel and DC, and given that each of them has hundreds of beings which destroy and create universes all the time, the fact that they are the most neglected is nothing short of ironic.

Basically people are misunderstanding the terminology and abusing it on fictions which they "think" have or can do that.

Yeah, I feel like about 95%, if not 100% of those examples should be removed. Some people seem to think that "if it's a universal apocalypse and no other universes are implied to exist then it's a Class Z".

I've only seen one example of an explicitly possible Class Z, and that's in an online roleplay. It's really not as common as people think.

  • In Turtles Forever, Ch'rell (the 2003 Shredder) plans to destroy Turtle Prime in order to eliminate the Turtles once and for all. That this would result in all that exists being destroyed (including the crazy bastard who plans to make it happen) is the reason Karai (who saw Shredder as her de facto father) decides to turn face.

This would not have destroyed all of reality, but only those universes that contained versions of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It's an X-5, and already listed on that page.

How well does it match the trope?
