What exactly is a god in the Calamity Universe? In a fantasy setting, my personal definition of a god is a being of power far exceeding what is considered to be normal in that universe. However, this clearly isn't the case for Calamity, as the Slime God is considered a god, and yet SCal isn't. Another idea I had is that perhaps it's a being with dominion over something specific. This seems to match up with the majority of bosses defined as gods: Slime God, Astrum Deus, and Providence. However, there are some problems with this one. Again, this problem is with SCal, who uses brimstone and hellfire in combat. She is, by far, the strongest being with this affinity for them--yet she still isn't considered the god of either. It is a possibility that you can't ascend to a god; you have to be born one, which would rule out SCal, making the theory plausible. If anybody has any ideas, or has some lore that disproves anything I just stated, discuss it below--I'm very curious as to what the answer to this question is.
