The ability to abolish divinity of a deity. Opposite to Deification.

Also Called

  • Apotheosis Removal
  • De-Divinization
  • Undeification


The user can strip deities of their divinity, turning them into mortal beings. Despite this, some beings that have fallen victim to this ability may still have power but simply lose their divine aspects while others may be completely powerless.




  • Users of Deification may be able to re-ascend the target.
  • Some deities are too powerful to have their divinity removed.
