"The funny thing about miracles... They happen every day"
God to Maze
in "Resting Devil Face"

God is a central character in Lucifer. He is one of the two co-creators of the Universe and the Father of all Angels. After Lucifer Morningstar staged a rebellion in an effort to usurp the throne, God banished him to Hell and ordered him to become the new Sovereign, which His son perceived as a punishment and honored for eons before voluntarily leaving to Earth in 2011. Following his abdication, God sent Amenadiel to bring back Lucifer to Hell, but to no avail, which He expected. He's seemingly trying to have Lucifer redeem himself, as shown when He has Frank Lawrence cross paths with him as well as creating Chloe Decker for him.

After infighting between His angelic children significantly escalated, God returned to Earth for the first time in several millenia to break up the fighting. Unbeknownst to Lucifer or His other children, God had been manipulated for months by Michael into believing that He was losing control of His powers, eventually causing Him to consider retirement. Though this façade was discovered with the help of Amenadiel, God still decided to retire and later reconciled with Goddess, ultimately deciding to spend the rest of eternity alongside Her in Goddess' universe and leaving the management of Heaven to His children.



Creation of the Universe

At the dawn of time, God and Goddess fell in love with each other and collectively created the universe, Heaven, and Hell. They had many children, known as Angels.[1] God created His children to self-actualize, resulting in their physical appearance and powers to be affected based on how they feel about themselves subconciously[2], but chose not to tell them or Goddess, wanting to empower them and have them forge their own fate without His guidance.[3]

When He created the dinosaurs, He believed they would be fine, before they were wiped out by a meteor.[4] After their extinction, He started working on Humanity. However, when He began to work on Humans, His relationship with His wife worsened.[1]

Samael's Heavenly Rebellion

Due to He ignoring His family in having of developing Earth, it started making God's family bitter. Samael changed his name to "Lucifer" out of hurt, throwing a tantrum about God's lack of attention to the family. Lucifer decided to rebel against God in the belief he could do better.[1]

After Lucifer failed in his rebellion, God foresaw a future where Lucifer would redeem the souls of Humans who went to Hell, due to their guilt, so they could make it to Heaven,[5] and Amenadiel would take His place.[6] Believing that future was for the best, God set in motion His master plan.[7] Unfortunately, it would mean that God would have to be cold and distant to Lucifer to ensure the future He saw would play out exactly.[8]

God faked being furious at Lucifer and sent him to Hell; tricking Goddess into thinking it was her idea.[9] The Flaming Sword was broken apart, though God lied that He destroyed it after Lucifer's rebellion.[10] God entrusted the Blade of Death to Azrael and the the key to Amenadiel.[11] Though, the Medallion Of Life ended up on Earth.[12] He then kept up a passive-aggressive facade with his children who supported Lucifer.[13] As a final test to see how far Lucifer was willing to go to save a Human life, God put a spell on Heaven to destroy him if he ever returned, only breaking if he did the deed.[14]

The First Humans

God's work on Humanity eventually paid off with Adam, the first man. He and his wife, Lilith, lived in the Garden of Eden before God forced Adam to divorce her due tensions between them and banish her from the garden.[15]. God then made Adam a second wife, Eve, from Adam's rib bone, and the two lived in the Garden of Eden until Lucifer corrupted them, and God sent them to Earth to live out their lives as the first Humans.[16] While they were on Earth, God gave Adam the assignment to name all the animals.[17]

Marking Cain

When Adam and Eve's son, Cain, killed his own brother, God, furious by such an act, cursed Cain to never die and should he die, he would be resurrected, with methods able to kill Angels being unable to kill Cain.[18] He had Amenadiel brand Cain with his mark that he made never able to be erased, in order to forever remind Cain of what he did.[19] Sometime after Humanity started growing, God made His number one rule among His children that they weren't allowed to kill Humans.[20]

Banishing Goddess

A couple thousand years after Lucifer's banishment, Goddess started creating floods and plagues on Humanity due to God paying more attention to them, instead of Her.[9] As a result, God banished His Wife to Hell, and had Amenadiel fly Her down.[21]

Interpreted by Humanity

Throughout the centuries, different religions' views on what God wanted differed from each other. Some civilizations even went to war believing what they were doing was what He wanted. However, through it all, God chose not to intervene and say what he truly wanted.[22] If He would ever have an issue, He would send an emissary like Amenadiel to Earth to deal with it, or in some instances, a "burning bush."[12]

Redeeming the Wayward Son

Gift from God

Circa 1981, God ordered Amenadiel to go down to Earth and bless a couple who were not able to have their own child. The couple was John and Penelope Decker, who later gave birth to Chloe Decker. That was the first and only time God asked Amenadiel to do anything like that.[23] Chloe was meant to cross paths with Lucifer, so he could form a connection with a Human that was immune to his desire mojo and grow as an Angel.[24]

Sending Lucifer Back to Hell

Throughout the years, Lucifer would spend time on Earth for recreation; God sent Amenadiel to drag him back to Hell each time, as it wasn't time yet for him to be on Earth. In 2011, Lucifer had grown tired with ruling Hell and moved to Los Angeles; however, because Amenadiel made a promise to leave Lucifer alone after helping him recover his necklace, he couldn't be sent back.[25] By 2016, Amenadiel claimed God sent him to ask Lucifer to return; however, this happened on the day he met Chloe (part of God's long run plan).[8]

Crossing Paths with Father Frank

Wanting Lucifer to continue forming connections with all Humans, God sent Father Frank Lawrence to cross paths with His son so he could see a different side to the priests. Frank was aware of Lucifer's true identity and fulfilled his purpose in have Lucifer bond with someone he never thought he could before he was killed. That night, Lucifer, distraught over Frank's murder, angrily shouted at God to give him answers as to why He allowed a good man like Frank to die despite falling His rules; God didn't answer.[26]

Deal with Lucifer

When Lucifer was mortally wounded by Malcolm Graham, Lucifer prayed to his Father, wanting to make a deal: he would be the son He wanted if He protected Chloe in his absence. God, wanting Lucifer to resolve his issues with his Mother, so that when He eventually reunites with him, he'd be more open to reconciliation, showed him Goddess's empty cell when he went to Hell, before bringing him back to life using the Pentecostal Coin.[27]

After Lucifer sent Goddess into a Void to create a new universe, he became convinced that the return of his wings was a punishment from God for his actions, although it later turned out that Lucifer gave himself his wings back.

Manipulated by Michael

Sometime after Michael became God's right-hand after Amenadiel became stranded on Earth, and became the only one allowed to talk wit Him in the Silver City,[28] the Archangel started manipulating his Father for the last few months into believing He was losing control of his powers so he could userp Him. God, however, aware of what His son was up too, played along, as He knew that Michael would be defeated by Lucifer and Amenadiel would take his place.[7][6]

Relieving Amenadiel

When Amenadiel temporaily took over as Ruler of Hell, so Lucifer, who had return to Hell to keep the Demons in line, could return to Earth to deal with Michael, God, who knew the time was coming for Lucifer to fullfill his calling as the healer of Hell, spoke to His son while he was wandering the Underworld's hallways and told him that Hell no longer required a warden. This allowed Amenadiel to return to Earth and relay the message to Lucifer.[24]

Returning to Earth

Family Squabble

God didn't return to Earth following His creation for thousands of years. Eventually, after Amenadiel froze time and he, Lucifer, Michael, and Mazikeen started all fighting in the frozen Los Angeles precinct, God realized He had to take action and appeared before His three Archangel children in physical form, a bright light appearing behind Him, to halt their sibling squable.[29]

God appears to halt his children's fighting.

After commenting on how He doesn't like it when they fight, God's three sons retracted their wings, and each tried to give their own explanation of what started the conflict. God ultimately didn't care who started the fight, stating that He wants His sons to get along regardless of what's happened since they're family. While Amenadiel and Michael try to ablige to their Father's wishes, Lucifer refuses to forgive Michael for the chaos he reaped, causing God to stop His wayward son from leaving by referring to him by his real name.

God cradles Charlie.

God then stood back as Lucifer accused Him of not stopping Michael despite being omnipotent before storming out of the precinct. Noticing His grandson, Charlie, God smiled and headed over to the frozen Linda Martin to see him. He picked him up to cradle him before unfreezing time. After time started again, God was asked who He was by Linda, only for Him and Amenadiel to just smile.[3]

Trying to Unite the Family

After introducing Himself to Linda, God was taken back to her house, where He continued to cradle His grandson. He was poked by Linda in the shoulder, who was having a hard time accepting He was in her house, but He assured her that it was fine as He was gratful for the grandchild she gave Him. As God was mesmerised over Charlie's cutness, Linda went to get God a drink.

Amenadiel then approached his Father to tell Him that Lucifer was telling the truth regarding Michael, but God wasn't concerned by it, deaming family as the most important thing. When Amenadiel tried to ask Him about Charlie's mortality, God cut him off before he could finish, by referring to him as adorable and deciding he knew just what his Celestial family needed to bring them together; a family dinner.

The following day, God went to invite Lucifer to the dinner while he was working on a murder case at The Kingdom, a minigolf place. Approaching his son with a putter, he noticed him staring longinly at Chloe, and asked him what romantic thing he's going to say to her. After Lucifer kicked His golfball away, he angrily asked why he was even bothering asking since he was omnipotent. Knowing Lucifer was going to kick His golfball, God took out another one and simply said it was His father's intuition.

As He prepared to take a swing, Lucifer demanded to know why He was still on Earth, as wouldn't the Universe collapse with pressence on Earth. After making a hole-in-one in a church golf course, God assured Lucifer that it was fine. Just as Lucifer was about to walk off, God grabbed his shoulder and told him that He had come to ask him something.

God invites Lucifer Morningstar to a family dinner.

Lucifer agreed to hear his Father out, but when God gave him his invitation to the family dinner He was making, Lucifer swiftly declined. As he was about to head over to Chloe, God told His son that He didn't want to leave Earth until they all talked through their issues, but that did little to change Lucifer's mind as he stormed off. God, however, wasn't concerned, as He knew he would show up.[3]

Talk with Mazikeen

God prepares for dinner.

Returning to Linda's house to prepare the dinner while she took Charlie for a walk, God sent Michael to Florence in order to get chocolate as part of dinner preparations and had Amenadiel talk to Lucifer to get him to reconsider, knowing he eventually will. Aware that Mazikeen would be arriving to ask Him for a soul, He prepared what would become her favorite drink.

As God was chopping vegetables, Maze tried to sneak up behind Him, but God knew she was there and greeted her with the drink He made for her. Despite Maze deeming the drink as okay, God knew she loved it, as she scoffed it down as He turn around. After He tells her where everyone was, He gave her permission to give Him her request. When she asked for a soul, God questioned why she wanted one, to which she answered as she felt alone.

God talks to Mazikeen about herself.

Knowing Maze had already grown a soul by herself, He deamed her perfect just the way she was. When Maze exposed her Demon face to frighten Him, God remained calm and told her that He would never change who she was. Thinking, however, that God refused to believe He made a mistake in creating Demons, Maze stormed out, leaving God to sigh in disappointment that she didn't understand what He was trying to say.[3]

Family Dinner

With their family dinner about to begin, God sat at the head of the table. Though Michael tried apologizing for Lucifer's absence, God wasn't surprised when His son arrived with soufflé. After Lucifer sat at the other end of the table, God thanked him for showing up. He then stopped Linda from leaving their dinner, deaming she was apart of their family as she was his grandson's mother.

Before Michael could start eating, Lucifer reminded him that they needed to say grace. God listened to Linda's grace, which turned into her drolling off all the things she's grateful for to Him, before Lucifer cut her off and finished it. God, however, assured her that her grace was beautiful and told everyone to dig in.

God starting serving himself before Amenadiel handed him the chicken dish. Before He could start eating, Linda complimented the chicken, to which God responded that all it took was just the right amount of rosemary. God then listened to Lucifer list all the villainous deeds Michael commited on Earth, but wasn't fazed by his son's actions. When Michael and Lucifer started referring to each other by their birthnames, God remembered how he enjoyed how their names rhymed. Things got awkward when Lucifer revealed that Amenadiel called God a "Real Ass", but He assured his eldest son that it was okay.

God causes a thunderstorm to stop the fighting.

Lucifer then started asking God why He never told them that they self-actualize and that they were never being punished by Him, but God didn't answer. However, when Lucifer questioned why Hell no longer needed a warden, all God said was that He had a good reason for it, which annoyed Lucifer. When Lucifer and Michael started arguing over who got the worse upbringing, God started to lose his temper and forced the candles on the table to go out. As the fight was about the escalate, God silences them by starting a thunderstorm.

After He reignited the candles with His mind, and Lucifer and Michael returned to their seats, the former commented on His "Old Testimant wrath". God then became disappointed that it was to much to ask for a nice family dinner. Things became even more awkward when Linda starting laughing estarically over figuring out that chicken was God's favorite.

God then listened to Lucifer berate Him as a bad father, even questioning if Amenadiel would raise Charlie the same way He did to them. God waited for his answer, only to be be saddened that he hoped he wouldn't. When Lucifer continued to call God out on how much he "screwed [them] up", God apologized that he felt that way, saying all He wanted was to empower his children, to get them to make their own choices.

Lucifer then demanded to get one simple answer to one simple question, causing Michael to assure their Father that He didn't have to answer, but God raised his hand towards him to silence him. He gave Lucifer permission to ask. When his question was whether or not He loved them, God just states that if He had to tell them that, then He had failed in raising them. Believing he had his answer, Lucifer believed that God was incapable of love before leaving. The four sat in silence, before Linda awkwardly offered more wine.[3]

Staying a While Longer

The following day, God and Amenadiel cleaned up from the dinner, and Amenadiel asked God again if Charlie was mortal. Rather then tell Amenadiel that he wasn't, He gave him a cryptic answer of that it appears to be the case to have him figure it out on his own. When Amenadiel begged God to make him Human and Charlie an Angel to spare his son the trauma of being Human, God refused, believing fatherhood wasn't as simple as doing anything for their children.

God decides to stay on Earth longer.

At that moment, Michael arrived and asked God if He was ready to for their return to Heavan. God asked if Michael was ready, and when he confirmed he was, God told him to go home without Him, deciding to stay on Earth a little longer, much to Amenadiel's surprise. When Michael tried to stay with Him, God didn't think that was a good idea, deeming that Michael was no longer welcome on Earth, effectively banishing him.

Michael questioned why he was the one being punished, but God assured his son that he wasn't. After the Archangel left in a huff, God stated to Amenadiel that what He had to do with Michael was an example of how fatherhood was never easy. He then asked if Amenadiel had a futon He could sleep on.[3]

Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam

Making People Sing and Dance

God applauds Lucifer's performance.

The next day, God went to see Lucifer in his penthouse, only to become mesmerized by Lucifer singing "Wicked Game" on the piano, remembering what a beutiful voice he had. After he finished, God applauded His son, but Lucifer ignored His praise and instead asked why He was still on Earth. God told him He was staying a while and revealed He sent Michael back to Heaven when Lucifer believed the duo would wreak more havok together.

When Lucifer asked why God was choosing to stay on Earth longer, He simply questioned if He needed a reason to visit his children. Lucifer refused to give his Father attention, and, when He referred to Lucifer as Samael again, he refused to answer to it and pushed Him to the elevator, demanding He stay away from him. God then sadly left His son alone.

A few hours later, when Lucifer was at a crime scene at a high school field, Gold altered reality to make people sing and dance "Another One Bites the Dust", including Lucifer, knowing it was time to put on the façade that he was losing control of His powers. After the song, Lucifer noticed his Father and stormed over to him. God said He wanted to see what Lucifer does for degarding to a police assistant, only for Lucifer to correct Him as a consultant.

God making people sing and dance.

God questioned how he knew He was there, but Lucifer tells Him that everyone singing and dancing gave His pressence away. God commented that it was fun though, which Lucifer couldn't disagree with, but insisted that it wasn't what happened at crime scenes. God assured him that He understood and that it wouldn't happen again, only for another musical number of teenagers to be happening in back of Him, God knowingly smiling at Lucifer.

God meets Chloe Decker.

After Lucifer went to go talk to Chloe, God observed their conversation, before the latter went over to Him. She introduced herself before chastising Him for the way He neglected Lucifer for thousands of years just because he acted out. Unfazed by Chloe's insults, God deamed it was nice to finally meet her. He took note of how much she cared for His son, and thought Lucifer was lucky to have her. When Chloe was about to bring up being a gift, Lucifer escorted her away from the All Mighty before things took a turn.

At the precinct, after Lucifer and Chloe brought in a suspect and his mother, God showed up in the observation room and made Lucifer and the mother sing "Every Breath You Take". Lucifer stood in front of the two-way mirror to the observation room, knowing God was watching them and sang with distain, but God just continued to smile. After the song was over, He disappeared.[30]

Bonding with Lucifer

God and Lucifer decide to work on their relationship.

God was then invited to stay with Lucifer at his penthouse, His son offering Him the bed while he took the sofa. Knowing Lucifer wasn't letting Him stay with him out of the kindness of his heart, God asked His son what this was all about. When Lucifer told Him he wanted to repair their broken relationship so he could have a proper relationship with Chloe, God agreed to give it a try.

Lucifer took God to the precinct to show Him where he worked, even offering Him a sprinkled donut. God, however, declined, preferring a different kind of donut, but thanked His son nonetheless. He asked where Lucifer's "throne" was, confusing it for his "seat of power", remembering that he said he was important at the precinct. Lucifer, however, told Him that he didn't have an office, as he preferred to be ready for action by standing.

When God asked if he had at least a desk, Dan Espinoza arrived at his, causing Lucifer to insist Dan tell God how important he was. God took note of Dan's desk and believed that if Lucifer work hard enough, he might rise to Dan's level of importance. When God started examining Dan's nameplate, the Detective took it back and questioned who He was, only to be in awe that it was God All Mighty.

God vaguely threatens Dan Espinoza.

Dan embarrassily introduced himself to God, even hugging Him, before God finally recognized Dan as the man who slept with His ex-wife while She was inhabiting Charlotte Richards's body. After vaguely threatening Dan as He adjusted his jacket, Lucifer took Him away to check out the vending machines. As they walked away, God altered reality again to make Maze sing "Bad to the Bone" and Ella Lopez sing "No Scrubs".

When they got to the kitchen, much to Lucifer's embarrassment, God spat the coffee he made for Him in the garbage. Chloe then arrived to see how the two were doing, only for Lucifer to insist she try his coffee. God assured her it was fine, but she refused to get in the middle of their issues and left. God believed Lucifer made Chloe uncomfortable, only for His son to take Him to Linda's office to get her advice.

God and Lucifer in therapy.

God and Lucifer sat at opposite ends of the therapy coach and gazed away from each other before Linda tried starting their therapy session. The Father-Son duo began to bicker over each other before Linda silenced them and asked God if Lucifer has done anything to anger Him. God chuckled at that obsered idea, saying He wasn't mad about anything. Lucifer, however, found that hard to believe since He banished him to Hell, and believed He did it because He was mad that Lucifer threatened his "superhero status".

God insisted it was impossible to make Lucifer happy as no matter what He did, gave His opinion or let him make his own decisions, he would always assume the worst possible intention. When Lucifer said it was because nothing was ever good enough for Him, listing all the things He judged him about, God argued that He was trying to take an interest in His son's life.

Lucifer revealed that God turned the morning crime scene into a music video, but God remembered Lucifer enjoying himself as he was singing the loudest. Before the two could start an aguement, Linda haulted them and started calling the two out on how they were worse then Humanity since they've had thousands of years to work through their issues, but haven't.

When Linda insisted that a good father loves their son unconditionally, all be it in a very off way, God believed He understood what she meant. He moved toward Lucifer, placing His hands on top of His son's, and told him that He was going to be supportive from now on, which only freaked Lucifer out.

After Lucifer returned to the case they were working on, he took God to a locker room so they could interrogate their next suspect. When God started examing a jockstrap, Lucifer took it away, deeming that it was a part of Humanity He didn't want to experience. He then started complementing Lucifer nonstop, even trying to play catch with him, only for it to bounce off Lucifer's chest as he wasn't prepared. God simply complemented his "block."

When Coach McVey arrived, God continued to be supportive of His son by bragging to the coach on how important of a consultant he was to the LAPD, much to Lucifer's embarrassment. God then listened to Chloe's conversation with McVey over Steve Rockwell's murder, and asked McVey not to bring Him into his feelings over Steve when he used His name to describe his attitude.

God giving Lucifer a noogie.

After Lucifer used his mojo on McVey to get him to cooperate, God complimented his use of his special talentand described it as a team effort since He made him self-actualize his abilities. When He tried to high five him, Lucifer denied it. He then listened in silence as they continued to question McVey, before giving Lucifer a playful noogie after he was able to get McVey to hand over his keys to his truck for processing.

Lucifer took God back to Lux where the nightclub was in the middle of a music number, as God had manipulated reality to have Dan sing "Hell". Though God complimented the "Lively place" Lucifer had, His son demanded he stop the "bloody celestial karaoke jam" immediately. God agreed to abide to His son's request just as soon as the current dance number was over. He then starte dancing with the crowd.[30]

God became increasingly convinced that he was losing control of his powers, and decided to choose one of his children to replace him. Amenadiel eventually realized that Michael was actually manipulating his father in order to take power, while Lucifer had Gabriel contact Goddess, who returned from Her new universe. God and Goddess were happily reunited and they decided to retire together to Goddess's universe. Dropping his mysterious attitude, God tearfully admitted that Lucifer was right in that he was not a good father. God finally told Lucifer that he loved him and was proud of the man that his son had become. God and Goddess left together with God telling his sons that it was up to them now to figure out who would replace him.[7]

Plan Fulfilled

After realizing that his true calling is to help the souls of Hell overcome their guilt and reach Heaven, Lucifer finally understood what God meant when he told Lucifer that he would figure it out and that Hell no longer needs a keeper. God had meant that Hell needs a healer which is Lucifer's true calling.<ref>"Partners 'Til the End"

Alternate Universe

To see if Lucifer and Chloe would always cross paths with each other despite the circumstances, God created an alternate universe where John Decker was never killed, causing Chloe never to become a cop. This caused a butterfly affect, where everyone in Lucifer and Chloe's lives in the original universe were altered in this new one. However, in the end, God's theory that Lucifer and Chloe were meant be in each others' lives proved true, all be it a few years later then originally planned, as they united to solve the murder of someone close to Chloe who just so happened to be killed at Lux.[31]


God's reaction to the "devil face" of his son, Lucifer.

Nobody bloody knows what "He" wants, because the selfish bastard won't just tell us!
— Lucifer about God
in "Weaponizer"

God seems to care more for humans than angels, as after he created humans, he spent more time on them than he did with his celestial family. His care for humans even surpass his love for his wife, as he banished her to Hell after she repeatedly tried to destroy humanity.

Amenadiel admits God can be "an ass"; with his "mysterious ways". Though it seems millennia of ruling existence mellowed God out. Goddess claimed God wished to obliterate Lucifer after the Rebellion before being convinced to send him to Hell; contradicted by "Resting Devil Face", where God laughs at the memory. Even cursing Cain with immortality ended up being short-sighted on God's part as Abel wanted to kill too and humans ended up killing each other anyway.

God set up the universe so that he didn't have control of the fates of mortals and immortals; instead, their own self-judgment decides where they go when they die.

God during his therapy with Lucifer.

To the embarrassment and frustration of Lucifer, God is clueless about human interaction; even for the seriousness of crime solving. God has a fondness for musicals, using his powers to compel humans to sing songs related to their current situations; while it's unknown if he actually chooses the songs or those he directs pick them.

Lucifer. At our family dinner. You were right. I could have been a better father to you. (Lucifer: Well now you forgo your mysteries ways.) No need for them anymore. Now that I'm retiring. Which means.... I can say something I've wanted to for a long time. I love you son. And I'm proud of the man you became.
– God's true feelings to Lucifer

During his therapy session with Linda, God explained that he tried to give his children space to make their own choices, as when he tried parenting, he was deemed controlling. However, he soon received clarity that he needed to show Lucifer support in order to help mend their relationship. Though on the flip-side, God was very proud of Lucifer for not needing his father's support to build his own life (granted he did nudge things with Chloe and Amenadiel); something none of his other children did before Lucifer.

After spending time on Earth seeing the lives of Lucifer, Amenadiel and those close to them, God realized that he had truly not understood his children and that they had grown since living with mortals. Further more, when Goddess returned, God admitted that she was better at running a universe than him as she found it easy. Upon his retirement, God admitted Lucifer had been right to be angry with him and that despite his lackluster parenting, Lucifer had grown into someone he could be proud of.

Powers and Abilities

  • Nigh-Omnipotence: As a god, God is all but omnipotent; and unrivaled, even to His wife, Goddess, who He cast to Hell and stripped of her power, He is also now stronger as her prolonged imprisonment has weakened her. With Goddess, He created the universe and angels. God's power made Him able to create an entire, albeit weaker, species on His own, as He created humanity, and He is also capable of placing extremely powerful curses on an individual, as He cursed Cain to always be resurrected should he die, with even demon knives being unable to kill him despite the knives being able to kill angels. He can effortlessly kill other species, even those who stand on top of the hierarchy, such as Lucifer, as Goddess said that God can destroy Lucifer and wanted to do so after his rebellion until Goddess convinced Him to spare him. God's power is also great enough to be capable of temporarily altering the timeline for a "butterfly effect" experiment, or creating an alternate, temporary reality with the scenario He wants to test.
    • Resurrection: God resurrected Lucifer after he was killed by Malcolm so he could find Goddess. He also resurrected Dan after exploding him.
    • Healing: When God resurrected Lucifer, He also healed his gunshot wound. After exploding Dan, God put him back together and removed all trace of injury.
    • Immortality: God can live for eternity and is almost impossible to destroy, with only Goddess having the potential to do so.
    • Flight: Gods can traverse interdimensional barriers, such as the ones between Heaven, Hell, and Earth. He traveled from Heaven to Earth to stop Lucifer, Amenadiel and Michael's fight.
    • Weather Manipulation: When Lucifer and Michael were arguing during the family dinner, God created a thunderstorm in His displeasure. Lucifer calls it "Old Testament Wrath".
    • Pyrokinesis: God was able to relight the candles during the family dinner after he put them out in His anger over Lucifer and Michael arguing.
    • Reality Warping: God is able to control reality, as he was able to make music play, and shine colorful lights out of nowhere. He was also able to make Himself win by hitting each hole on the first try while playing golf. He was able to explode Dan and then instantly put him back together.
    • Mental Manipulation: God made people, and human corpses, participate in impromptu musical dance numbers, without them being disturbed by that, and then removed all their memories. Angels seem to have a slight immunity to this, as Lucifer expressed confusion when it occurred and remembered it happening, with him later stating that he just got caught up in the music. However, Amenadiel seems as susceptible to this as the humans around him. After exploding Dan, he made it so that all humans in the surroundings forgot it happened, although Dan seemed to have trace memories of the experience.
    • Power Stripping: After listening Lucifer's advice, God decided to become human and put His power into Charlie's toy. After finishing His day as human, He took back his power, and became God once again.
    • Super Strength: He was able to grip Dan's hand with enormous strength that caused him great pain.
    • Molecular Combustion: God was able to kill Dan by making him explode.
    • Chronokinesis: God was able to unfreeze time upon His arrival on Earth. After Lucifer and other people finished their musical dance number on football field, He reversed time and returned all of them to the positions they were in before they started dancing. God reversed time to put Dan back together after killing him.
  • Nigh-Omniscience: As a primordial entity, God possesses a nearly unrivaled amount of knowledge. However, contrary to popular belief, He isn't aware of everything that happens, and he apparently doesn't understand certain things and concepts, such as sarcasm.


  • Goddess: She had similar powers to God before she was severely weakened. According to Uriel, if Goddess regained Her former powers, she would be the only being able to kill God.
  • The Flaming Sword: If He was stabbed with the Flaming Sword while in human vessel, His essence would be completely eradicated from existence.
  • Self-Actualization: God has admitted that He has been losing control of His power for some time, resulting in several accidents during His time on Earth. However, it later turned out that He was doing this to Himself due to Michael's manipulations, as He is subject to self-judgment, just like mortals and angels are.
    • Senility: While human (and insecure due to Michael's manipulations), God showed signs of poor memory.

God: "Does that mean I never should've manipulated things to begin with? I have a better question. Wouldn't you do the same in my shoes? After all, a parent just wants what's best for their child."

God: "My son and I... Well, let's just say, I don't think I could change anything that would make our relationship less complicated."


  • In the comics, God is known as the Presence, who is the creator of the DC Multiverse and is truly omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. However, Presence is still weaker than Perpetua and the Hands.
  • In "Favorite Son", Linda claims that Lucifer is God's favorite child after doing research on the devil. However, in "Sympathy for the Goddess", an ancient Sumerian text claims that the key for the Flaming Sword was given to God's favorite son. The key is revealed to be Amenadiel's necklace strongly implying that he is God's favorite.
  • In "Quid Pro Ho", Lucifer implies Nietzsche is his father's killer. This is a reference to the famous quote "God is dead".
  • Amenadiel notes God has a tendency to overreact.
    • He nearly erased Lucifer from existence for rebelling against Him (which was just Lucifer's way of expressing his pain at being ignored by Him) until Goddess convinced Him to send Lucifer to hell instead.
      • He later laughed at the memory when he was temporarily human, suggesting he either mellowed over time or Goddess was lying.
    • He cursed Cain with immortality for killing Abel (which was the first murder ever). Cain views this as an overreaction as both brothers wanted to kill each other.
  • In "Once Upon a Time", God is narrated by Neil Gaiman. Gaiman created the version of Lucifer in The Sandman comic, that would go on to appear in the solo Lucifer comics on which the TV series is loosely based on.
    • Gaiman is British, giving God a British accent.
  • As revealed in Crisis on Infinite Earths, God's inaction takes extreme levels. Rather than recreate his universe Himself, He leaves it to The Spectre and the Paragons to reboot the multiverse, not bothering to lend a hand against the Anti-Monitor, although this is likely because He knew the multiverse would eventually be recreated, as part of His plan.
  • God purposely chose to have "el" at the end of his children's names; he liked the rhyming. Though he does respect if they have chosen a name for themselves; after seeing it set off his son, God accepted calling him "Lucifer" instead of Samael.
    • The suffix "el" or "iel" in angelic names is Hebrew for "God".
  • God's favorite donut was the one with the ones with the "little cereal bits" on top.
  • God enjoyed NCIS, similar to how Lucifer enjoys Bones.
