|“||It was an All-in-One and One-in-All of limitless being and self--not merely a thing of one Space-Time continuum, but allied to the ultimate animating essence of existence's whole unbounded sweep--the last, utter sweep which has no confines and which outreaches fancy and mathematics alike. It was perhaps that which certain secret cults of earth have whispered of as YOG-SOTHOTH, and which has been a deity under other names; that which the crustaceans of Yuggoth worship as the Beyond-One, and which the vaporous brains of the spiral nebulae know by an untranslatable Sign--yet in a flash the Carter-facet realized how slight and fractional all these conceptions are.||„|
|~ Through the Gates of the Silver Key|
Yog-Sothoth is a cosmic entity in the fictional Cthulhu Mythos.
Yog-Sothoth exists outside of all time and space, simultaneously embodying all of it. It is described as the "Supreme Archetype", all other things that exist simply being facets of him. Yog is viewed as the second most powerful of the Outer Gods, only behind Azathoth.
It is also one of the few that can be viewed as benevolent in some cases, as it seems to have no real set allegiance and will help those who it views as worthy of its attention.

Attack Potency: Outerverse level, possibly higher (Exists well beyond all confines of time and space, Described as far more terrible and awe-inspiring than the blackness that exists beyond the Gate, A direct avatar of Yog-Sothoth) | High Outerverse level (Yog-Sothoth encompasses infinite spatial dimensions and transcends all of it. Immeasurably stronger than all other Outer Gods, except Azathoth. Even Nyarlathotep, who is often considered to be "lesser" among the Outer Gods, is able to create avatars who themselves transcend creation and can navigate the ultimate dimensionless void to enter the Court of Azathoth, yet they are still far weaker than the true entity itself. Yog-Sothoth is stated to vastly transcend the "dizzy and reachless heights of archetypal infinity". Every being that possesses intelligence is considered just a facet of Yog-Sothoth, from a mere human to the most complex Outer God. Yog is considered to be absolutely boundless from the perspectives of almost all beings, but is in truth restricted only by Azathoth. Regardless, Yog-Sothoth is considered to be of equal importance to Azathoth as just as nothing can be created without Azathoth, nothing can exist without Yog-Sothoth.)
