Higher-Dimensional Existence on this wiki refers to characters who belong to higher worlds or planes of reality with a number of dimensions greater than three-dimensional universes. In other words, they have bodies of at least four dimensions. The difference between these characters and those from ordinary space-time reality corresponds to the geometric difference between objects with different numbers of dimensions, such as a two-dimensional square and a three-dimensional cube. This means, it is more than countably infinite, not only quantitatively but also qualitatively. Characters of higher dimensions are often shown to be godlike with respect to lower dimensions, not only because of their superiority in strength but also due to their existence encompassing completely different laws of physics and logic, which are beyond the control of three-dimensional beings. It should be noted that having higher-dimensional power does not mean the character has a higher-dimensional existence, nor does higher-dimensional movement or immeasurable speed, but some of these do mean that such characters can contend with these beings.

Possible Uses

Immeasurable Strength: Three-dimensional concepts of matter and mass are irrelevant.

Acausality: Existence outside normal spacetime and thus not bound by traditional temporal-causality induced logic. However, this depends on the cosmology.

Reality Warping: Most higher-dimensional beings in fiction have some form of reality manipulation. However, this should not be applied in cases where there is not enough information about the character.

Cosmic Awareness: Just as we can observe the "internal" structure of two-dimensional objects, beings from higher dimensions can look at three-dimensional objects in a similar fashion.

Large Size: Adding one spatial dimension makes a character infinitely bigger geometrically than the preceding number.

Self-Sustenance: Higher-dimensional beings have many types of this power.
