Death, O glorious, final death! Savior of man! My heart, drowned in venom, ravaged by time, may beat its last within your embrace. May spear’s wound, may venom’s bane, all perish at your coming. Aye, behold! This festering void gnawing at my soul... Clasp your blade, draw your steel! And plunge deep, deep till the hilt! Hark, brave knights, and know this: As the sinner finds his last refuge, his anguish done. So shall divine light be shower’d from the heavens above.

Origin: Dies Irae
Classification: Longinus Dreizehn Orden #7, One of the Three Commanders | Hadou God Cell
Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Immortality (Types 1, 3, 4 and 8. As an Einherjar he is immortal as long as Reinhard Heydrich exists.), Regeneration (Low-Godly, Mid-Godly within Gladsheimr), Enhanced Senses, Extrasensory Perception (Ewigkeit users have a "third eye" which allows them to see through a person identity by viewing the color of the soul, and perceive invisible attacks such as Ren's Assiah), Soul Manipulation (Can devour souls and can attack directly the soul of his targets), Reality Warping ((Briah allows Ewigkeit users to impose their own desire on reality), Barrier Creation, Power Nullification (Via his Holy Relic; punched out Ren out of his Eine Overture Briah and punched Tubal Cain out of his lighting Briah form), Death Manipulation (Can instantly kill anyone with a single hit from his Holy Relic), Existence Erasure (Any of Machina’s punches erase the existence of a being with a history when his Briah is active), Conceptual Manipulation (Can damage one concept with his Holy Relic, with this being powerful enough to chip through Trifa defenses, or even outright erase them with his Briah, as he would have destroyed the concept of darkness had he killed Methuselah, who is its physical embodiment), Can end all things with a single hit with his Holy Relic or Briah, Teleportation, Energy Absorption, Durability Negation (Attacks of a Holy Relic user are impossible to nullify since they attack on both a physical and spiritual level. His Holy Relic can simply "kill" anything and his Briah straight up erases whatever it hits.), Immunity to natural poisons and diseases, Resistance to Mental, Spiritual and Conceptual attacks | Same as before in addition to Acausality, Causality Manipulation, Regeneration (True-Godly), Probability Manipulation, Abstract Existence, Non-Corporeal
Attack Potency: Mountain level (Superior to Eleonore, his punches was described by Ren to be more powerful than any nuclear bombardments, one-shot Tubal Cain who was stated by the narration to be able to split entire mountains with a single attack), can bypass durability by attacking his opponent's soul, with his Holy Relic, or Briah | At least Planet level, likely far higher (Superior to boosted Wilhelm Ehrenburg who could smash Methuselah's Jaws of Darkness) | Outerverse level (Inhabits the same level of existence as a Hadou God)
Speed: At least FTL, likely FTL+ (At least comparable to Eleonore. Intercepted both Ren Fuji and Tubal Cain even while both of them had active. Able to keep up and trade blows with Ren Fuji, who once accelerated fast enough to make lightning appear frozen to him which showed to be this fast) | At least FTL, likely FTL+ (Superior than his restricted form) | Irrelevant
Lifting Strength: At least Class 10 (Stronger than Wilhelm) | Irrelevant
Striking Strength: Mountain Class | At least Planet Class, likely far higher | Outerversal
Durability: Mountain level (Superior to Eleonore who was unaffected by Tubal Cain attacks), regeneration makes him difficult to kill | At least Planet level, likely far higher (Superior to boosted Wilhelm Ehrenburg) | Outerverse level
Stamina: Limitless (Has an endless amount of souls due to his connection with Gladsheimr, allowing him to fight forever) | Limitless | Limitless
Range: Melee range | Outerversal
Standard Equipment: His Holy Relic, Deus Ex Machina (His own body)
Intelligence: Very skilled combatant with over 60 years of experience, expert tactician, possesses absolute knowledge on human anatomy and psychology
Weaknesses: His Relic's and Briah's effects are limited to his fists, so simply avoiding contact with them will allow one to escape the effects of his Briah. In addition, beings who possess no time of history and/or are higher-dimensional in nature are unable to be affected by it at all.
- Deus Ex Machina: (God From the Machine) Machina's Holy Relic, Deus Ex Machina takes the form of his own body. A passive Relic that is always active, Deus Ex Machina allows him to end anything his fists hit, even putting an end to a Gudou-type Briah user's ability (ex. Ren's and Beatrice's) and putting them back to their base form so long as they have a history. He is also even able to hit elemental beings with his relic, as he knocked out Tubal Cain while he had Beatrice's Briah active that makes the latter become pure lightning.
- Midgardr Völsunga Saga: (End of the Mortal Realm) Machina’s Gudou-type Briah, his desire being “I want to die with a single end”. When activated, his arms are covered in a pair of black armored guards that cover his entire arms. In this state, all of Machina’s punches now have the effect of erasing the existence of their target as long as they have a history (Which can include every single second of one's life, and works on material and immaterial beings, and even inanimate objects). This even applies to concepts (As they have existed since the Big Bang), allowing him to destroy Methuselah and the concept of darkness he embodies had Machina landed a direct hit. The only possible ways to bypass this ability are to be higher-dimensional (As it is impossible for Machina to actually hit them), have no time of history (as even as little as a millisecond of existence can count as having history), or to simply avoid all contact with his fists.
