There is no greater folly than standing against me.
~ Nicol Bolas


Nicol Bolas is the victor and only survivor of the multi-planar Dragon War, and the only original Elder Dragon left in the known MtG universe. At the peak of the Dragon War, his spark ignited and he ascended into a planeswalker.

Bolas has always desired more power, and will stop at nothing to get it. He orchestrated the release of the Eldrazi for reasons still unknown; and is one of the "Big 3" MtG villains, along with Phyrexia and the Eldrazi.

Attack Potency: At least Multi-Solar System level (One of the strongest Planeswalkers left in the multiverse, vastly superior to Elspeth, who was unable to defeat one of Nicol Bolas' generals on her own during the Shards of Alara arc. Kruphix saw him as a threat that the Gods of Theros could not overcome). | Multiverse level+ (His casual attacks caused multiversal time rifts. Defeated Teferi, a planeswalker who is able to manipulate time over the entire multiverse by himself. On one occasion he held off the collapse of the multiverse by destroying Leshrac, who was weaker than himself. He and the other Elder Dragons tore up the fabric of countless planes as a side effect of their war, and this was before Bolas even became a Planeswalker. Had become so powerful that he required mana lines to anchor himself to a plane, lest the overwhelming force of his presence destroy its very foundation.)

Speed: Unknown (Doesn't really have speed feats, but being supreme Planeswalker and temporal manipulator makes this somewhat inconsequential)

Lifting Strength: Unknown | Immeasurable

Striking Strength: Unknown | Multiversal Class+ (Multiversal rifts were caused as a side-effect of his battle)

Durability: At least Multi-Solar System level (Vastly superior to Elspeth, whose Planeswalker spark prevented Heliod from killing her) | Multiverse level+ (Was not at all worried about the potential collapse of the multiverse, and time rifts spanning over the multiverse were completely ineffective on him. Took an untold number of attacks from other Elder Dragons.). In addition, he can negate magic potent enough to repair time rifts across the multiverse and possesses regeneration strong enough to completely reconstruct his body and soul

Stamina: Solely dependent on where he "anchors" himself, usually chooses a place where he has an infinite amount of mana. Outside of normal planes, his stamina is limitless.

Range: Unknown, likely Universal+ (Able to interact with different planes than the one he is currently on) | Multiversal+ (Able to freely interact with any plane of existence, can exist outside the multiverse as a spiritual being)

Standard Equipment: His war armor

Intelligence: Quality multiversal schemer and professional chessmaster, has complete mastery of three colors of mana and can invoke the strongest spells in the series

Weaknesses: Body hopping makes him somewhat weaker, and can be weakened through blocking his access to mana. This can only be accomplished if he is attempting to manifest somewhere.

Key: Neowalker (Current Bolas)Oldwalker (Prime Bolas)
