Also Called

  • Sagacity
  • Mind of God


Omniscience ("all-knowing") is the capacity to know absolutely everything infinitely.

There is a distinction within this power:

  • inherent omniscience - the ability to know anything that one chooses to know.
  • total omniscience - actually knowing everything.

The user’s mind is unblocked to the entire omniverse and beyond, there is absolutely nothing which they do not know and understand, therefore they know every answer to every question, past, present, and future. Depending on the type, this power may allow the user to have all information at all times as some knowledge may be spontaneous while some may require the action of others.

By knowing absolutely everything about something, one can understand every counter available for that certain something, thus being unable to be defeated by said subject.
