This section will show hopes to provide a clear classification for the characters and other elements that do battle within the Factpile Universe.
While some categories have a very distinct advantage over others, it is well understood that some characters fluctuate in power levels depending on versions, setting, and other inherent variables. This means that a character that is generally considered to be within the Low Metahuman (T 5:C), could conceivably do battle against one within the High Metahuman (T 5:A), or even Low Herald (T 4:C), and still have very good chances of victory
Note: also to be redone
