Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Killing Gods: Ark has an ability that allows him to kill any god in a single hit.
  • Erasing all foreign matter: Ark can release an attack from a range, which erases all foreign matter from the world it is targeted at. Foreign matter is all those who came from another world. Those whose bodies are disjointed from the world’s truth, and a few other things. Aside from those targets, everything remains untouched.


Gods in the Rising of the Shield Hero verse are not mythological gods. Gods don't even have to be supernatural or non-human, but could also be humans with sufficient mastery of science. Gods generally share the property of being immortal. They are often the results of ancient universes that have mastered their worlds science and/or magic to a high degree, having gained the power to rule their world as an individual. It is the latter characteristic the probably is the distinction between gods and non-gods in the verse.
