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.

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, and thus 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 anture 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 being able to end 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), being capable of wiping out Methuselah and the concept of darkness he embodies with him had Machina landed a direct hit on the latter. The only possible ways to bypass this ability is 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.
