Note: This Page is Extremely Important
The following is an overview of general power within various popular fictions. It's to help people get an understanding of where various characters fall in debates. The more characters a universe has in higher tiers, the stronger that universe generally is in VS Battles. It is strongly advised that at the beginning of every character profile, the character in question be placed into one of these tiers, perhaps only after their names. It should be noted though that sometimes having overall destructive capacity is not enough to defeat others that have Broken or hax abilities. For example, Sensui is capable of doing destruction that's on a wider level than Demon Eyes Kyo, yet he would still get beaten by him due to Kyo having more speed than he does and also enough haxness and variety in broken abilities to defeat him. Thus, we can conclude that Kyo is on a higher tier than Sensui since he's able to beat him. To put it simply, hax and broken abilities can also put a character high in the tiers.
-It should be noted that a high-tier character cannot always (at least easily) beat a character with lower tier, especially if their ranks are too close or if they are from lowest tiers, for example, 9-A and 9-B. There are also special exceptions regarding a character's nature and abilities. E.g. Natsu might win (or at least put a good fight) against Ace despite being in lower tier due to his fire-eating ability. This also applies to large-scale water manipulators (e.g. Kisame) against certain Devil Fruit users.
After much discussion, we have agreed to start using a more logical ranking system based on that of the Anime Characters Fight wiki.
This system is based on the principle that according to infinity in projective geometry, each higher spatial (or added temporal) dimension is an infinite number of times greater than the preceding number. On this Wiki, you can check out this page for a bit longer explanation with easy to understand examples.
In addition, according to Brane Cosmology universes consist of 4-dimensional (3 spatial dimensions + 1 temporal dimension) branes in a higher-dimensional structure, with our multiverse containing something on the order of 10^500 of them.
M-Theory defines a sum totality of an entire multiverse with all higher dimensions included as a 10-11-dimensional structure.
Tier ∞: Beyond Omnipotence
∞: "Multi-Omniverse Level+":
Tier 0: Boundless
0: "True Infinity":
Beings that are boundlessly above absolutely everything, including existence and nonexistence, all duality and transduality, as well as level 1-A characters.
Tier 1: Higher-Dimensional:
1-A: Metaverse level+:
Characters that that have no dimensional limitations, and are beyond scientific definition, the realm of metaphysics.
Basically it means that an object is outside of all concepts of time and space. This is something completely formless, abstract, metaphysical and transcendental. The usual scale does not make sense against a beyond dimensional object. Such beings can not be affected by destruction within the dimensions of time and space, or physical matter and energy. This "Space" in which there is no dimension can be the background for any dimensional space. I.e. there exists an infinite number of imaginary dimensions. Within such a dimensionless "space" you can place any dimensional structure (even an infinite-dimensional Hilbert space), because there are no restrictions for dimensions.
1-B: Metaverse level:
12-dimensional beings and above. These are characters that are beyond complex multiversal scale. "Metaverse" in this case comes from two words: "meta", intended as "beyond", and "verse" as a short for "universe". So it is intended as a description of a higher, superior existence, beyond conventional reality.
12-dimensional characters are an infinite number of times greater than a full complex M-Theory multiverse, 13-dimensional character are an infinite number of times greater than that, and so onwards.
1-C: Complex Multiverse level:
These are 6-11-dimensional characters. Even 6-dimensional characters can logically easily destroy an infinite number of simple multiversal spacetime continuums (this is roughly the equivalent of the previous "Megaverse" term), and 7-dimensional characters exceed that scale an infinite number of times, and so onwards. However, these characters do not exceed the 11-dimensional scale of the complete totality of a full multiverse, as defined by M-Theory.
The highest part of this category is an infinity x infinity x infinity x infinity x infinity number of times greater than the bottom.
Tier 2: Multi-Universal
2-A: Multiverse level+ :
Characters who can instantly create and/or destroy 10^500 to an infinite number of universal spacetime continuums.
2-B: Multiverse level :
Characters who can create and/or destroy 1001 to (10^500)-1 universal spacetime continuums.
2-C: Multi-Universe level:
Characters who can destroy and/or create up to 1000 universal spacetime continuums.
The lower bounds of this category is often called Universe Level+. This is for characters who can destroy the entire spacetime of one or a few universes, not just the physical matter within one.
