Lore Power Levels Revised: The Cosmic Tier

What is up everyone. I am Hyper10sion also known as “The Power Levels Guy.” Around a year ago I started my Lore Power Levels so to provide a gauge for how powerful champions are in the lore on the League of Legends Subreddit. Everyone seemed to love them so I kept doing them whenever a new champion was introduced or an old one was reworked. Seeing as a lot has happened in a year, I’ve decided to redo the power levels with adjustments I have made over the past year. So now I am giving the Boards a little bit of love and posting them both on Reddit and the Boards. The more the merrier right? This one will also be different in that this version will focus a lot more on *why* these champions are put in the power levels and what is keeping them there. The last version covered what each champion does, so I feel redoing that would just make it stale. Before we get started I would like to point out that only canon lore is considered. Cinematics are only canon if they are lore or individual champion related, so Twist of Fate and New Dawn are out. Fan theories and “potential” are not considered, but input from Rioters is taken into account, in context. Also the lore must be current, so Institute of War, lores contradicted by the updated bios, etc are ignored. Also I try to be as impartial as possible when making these. I’m going to go ahead and outline every tier at the start this time for clarification so my explanation makes more sense. **The Cosmic Tier**: Formerly known as the God Tier but renamed so to cut down on confusion, this tier is the cosmic level beings. The lowest level of power a being must have to be on this tier is the power to impact an entire planet. They are immortal, nigh unkillable, extremely powerful, and almost as old as time itself. Just to emphasize, the beings in this tier are stated to not be gods. **The Transcended Tier**: This tier are beings with incredible power, either being a being that could single handedly destroy a city or do things beyond the normal realm of possibility. These beings are more than just a human physically, and can endure far more than an empowered human on the same level. They are practically immortal, or are very close. These beings avoid the Cosmic Tier by being limited in their scope, usually to a singular region of Runeterra. **The Harbinger Tier**: These are the champions with powers rivaling that of an army, or possess a non-combat ability of similar magnitude. Some of these would be Transcended Tier if not for human frailty or some glaring weakness, but are still extremely powerful. **The Magus Tier**: This tier is composed of the champions not quite powerful enough to be in the Harbinger Tier, but are definitely more than a physically exceptional human. Most of these champions have some sort of size, strength, or magical power that above that of what a mortal tier champion could typically match. **The Mortal Tier**: These are the champions that are still not slouches, but innately do not have power of a Magus tier champion. Most of them are merely skilled human warriors or rely on a weapon/mount for their power. A majority of human champions will be in this tier, along with a lot of your favorites. **Limbo**: These champions are more or less in flux. There is not enough concrete lore to officially rate their power, or they didn’t exert themselves at all so it cannot be rated. Seven champions occupy this tier, however none of the original four members remain due to help from Riot and directly from Rioters. Alright now that the list is out of the way I can move on to the first of the lists.   #The Cosmic Tier ***Champions***: *Aurelion Sol, Bard, Kindred, Zoe* {{champion:136}} **Aurelion Sol, The Star Forger**: Do I even need to justify this one? Aurelion Sol is very likely the most powerful champion in the entire game as far as lore is concerned. He creates stars, travels across the universe, and is practically immortal. He can easily destroy planets, as his ability to create and destroy stars is essentially a one move genocide. If he ever wants to exert effort, he can launch a blast of pure starfire, which is comparable to a small supernova. He however is not invincible, as he himself has said. Even so, he also said Targon made him fight other cosmic beings of near equal power and The Star Forger emerged victorious, meaning even among these beings of godlike power he is among the elite. Aurelion Sol personifies the Cosmic Tier in practically every way, so placing him lower would just be incorrect. When you are the center of the universe….you get placed where you want. {{champion:432}} **Bard, The Wandering Caretaker**: The Cosmic Vagabond is an enigma beyond human understanding. He is a Celestial, essentially a deity from another dimension. Bard is immortal, able to move faster than the eye can see, travel through time, create portals between dimensions, freeze time around him in an area, and see throughout the fabric of time and space. He is the caretaker of objects that could destroy worlds, and even has an entire race of spirit beings called Meeps subservient to him. His mere speech is so evolved it is impossible for practically anyone to understand. He doesn’t have any known weaknesses, all powers and feats for him come from his cinematic and Rioter Q&As. Bard just has too much going for him, and chimes all the way into the Cosmic Tier. *chime noises* {{champion:203}} **Kindred, The Eternal Hunters**: The twin faces of death are essentially the Shinigami of Runeterra. When a person is going to die, they can either die peacefully by the arrow of the Lamb, or die violently at the jaws of the Wolf. Kindred is immortal, live in their own plane of existence only they inhabit, and claim the souls of the dying. Only a few have defied the pair, and even they will be outlasted by Lamb and Wolf. Kindred is probably the most controversial inclusion into the Cosmic Tier, but I can defend my placement of them. Every being on Runeterra eventually answers to them, and will be outlasted by them. Kindred has that power over everything that lives or has ever lived. Combined with immortality and probable indestructibility due to living in their own plane of existence outside that of the other champions, Kindred reaps the rewards of the Cosmic Tier. *Lamb calls.* **Wolf Strikes.** {{champion:142}} **Zoe, The Aspect of Twilight**: Zoe is one of the most recent champions I have done an analysis on, so this is actually the easiest one. This little girl is capable of murder…...ing your entire freaking village as a joke. Zoe is the most powerful known avatar of an Aspect of Targon, in her case the Aspect of Twilight. She can create portals similar to a Portal gun, create a small star to fling at her enemies that gets more powerful with distance, can fly, is practically immortal to age, can alter time for others, can mimic and steal any spell she sees, and helps protect Aurelion Sol’s stars from Targon’s wrath. With her agelessness, interplanetary travel, sheer absurdity of her abilities, and overall power, Zoe cartoons her way straight to the Cosmic Tier. Praise Meddler for those nerfs.   So that was the Cosmic Tier, formerly known as the God Tier, updated and explained for the newest reworks and champions. I also updated a few champions placement based upon new info I received from either Rioters or an update of opinion in regards to perception of the champion in context. Tune in tomorrow for the Transcended Tier, where the first casualty of the updates occurs. Who is it? Find out next time on Dragon Ball Z! In the meantime, debate a bit with me in the comments about my placements and such, or if youi just want to talk lore that is also fine by me.

We're testing a new feature that gives the option to view discussion comments in chronological order. Some testers have pointed out situations in which they feel a linear view could be helpful, so we'd like see how you guys make use of it.
