    Chaotic Beings are Cosmic entities such as Anthropomorphic Personifications, Gods, and other beings connected to chaos. Their dominion over chaos and anything related to it, like entropy. They may even be empowered by the chaos around them. However, their possible weakness in order that can counter chaos.

    Some Chaotic Beings may be related to Entropy and Chaos Magic.

    Examples of Chaos Control include:


    Anime and Manga

    • Subverted with Nrvnqsr Chaos from Tsukihime is a Dead Apostle who is a living mass of chaos and doesn’t identify himself as a physical being. This chaos allows him to birth various organisms and makes Nrvnqsr difficult to kill under normal conditions. Despite being made of chaos, he is not a being of chaos; otherwise, Nrvnqsr couldn’t be killed at all.
    • In The Seven Deadly Sins, Chaos is a primordial entity that created the world and the five races from nothing. Chaos uses King Arthur as their physical vessel and awakens as the King of Chaos; this causes him to unconsciously alter reality due to lacking control over his power. He grows in proficiency while fighting Cath Palug, which leads him to accept his new power. After devouring King Arthur’s arm, Cath Palug gains a fragment of Chaos, which gives him similar control over reality.
    • The Lord of Nightmares from the Slayers series is the creator of the four worlds. She is also the Sea of Chaos that makes up the universe, meaning she’s omnipotent. There are even spells that use her power but are extremely powerful that a misfire can destroy the world.
    • Sailor Moon's Sailor Stars arc in both the anime and manga have different explanations for what Chaos is:
      • The manga explains that Chaos is an abstract being that takes the form of different concrete villains to spread discord and destruction. It technically exists within the Cauldron of Stars, and destroying the Cauldron would destroy Chaos. Sailor Cosmos is supposed to be locked in an eternal battle with Chaos. Only she burned out and fled to the past to find another solution with Sailor Moon’s help, posing as her little sister Chibi-Chibi.. Sailor Moon is urged to destroy the Cauldron, except it would also destroy new life. Instead, she opts to purify it, sacrificing her physical form and reviving everyone in Crystal Tokyo. Chaos is still out there but significantly more depowered.
      • In the anime, it’s explained that Galaxia attempted to purify the universe by gathering all of its Chaos into her body, believing she could control it. That ended up not working; if you try to eliminate all Chaos, it will corrupt you from the inside out for its goals. When Galaxia realized she was becoming corrupted, she sent out her Star-seed, the Light of Hope, to find help before she destroyed the entire universe. This Star-seed would take the form of Chibi-Chibi after locating Sailor Moon. While Sailor Moon is urged to destroy Galaxia and Chaos with it, she certainly tries at first with her wand and then the Sword of Sealing. She realizes that you can’t destroy an inert force of evil without destroying its source: sapient minds from humans and aliens. Instead, Sailor Moon uses her powers to purify Galaxia and dissipate Chaos, as well as the Light of Hope. As she explains, humans need Chaos and hope in their hearts to share the burden rather than center it into one person.
