Is there an applicable trope for one of the later episodes, where a public announcement is made about the Wired getting hacked, and that due to said messing with the Wired there is a concern about the message being broadcast to the past?

Move Idiot Ball to discussion. It's contentious: Lain may not be omnipotent. It is not clear what options are open to her.

  • Idiot Ball: Lain could easily have come up with a less radical solution, since she's omnipotent.
    • Considering she didn't, I'll say she isn't omnipotent by definition or even omniscient since she couldn't figure a more effective way of fixing the problem.
    • It's pretty explicit that she is offered the possibility of omnipotence, but she turns it down.

How well does it match the trope?
