"Regeneration" (more commonly dubbed a "Healing Factor") is a term applied to those who can heal wounds at an accelerated rate, far exceeding that of humans.
The lowest levels are basic wounds like cuts or scrapes that would normally take weeks to heal being healed in days, hours, minutes or even seconds. The higher levels go into regenerating entire limbs, vaporization, complete physical destruction and even complete conceptual destruction at the highest levels.
Low: Faster healing ability for normal wounds. In machines and vehicles, this would be regenerating basic exterior damage.
- Examples: Tanjiro Kamado (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba), Brandon Breyer (Brightburn), Sonic the Hedgehog (Sonic the Hedgehog)
Mid-Low: Able to heal wounds that would normally leave large scars, like severe burns, deep injuries and stab wounds. In machines and vehicles, this would be regenerating damage that would normally leave large dents and openings.
High-Low: Able to regenerate some severed body parts like fingers or minor organ damage, and in some cases reattach missing limbs. In machines and vehicles, this would be regenerating some interior damage, and some minor critically damaged or destroyed parts.
Low-Mid: Able to regenerate limbs/fatal wounds, and regenerate from things such as disembowelment and severe organ damage. Still die from decapitation. In machines and vehicles, this would be regenerating minor parts and more extensive internal damage.
Mid: Able to regenerate from decapitation or severe brain damage. In machines and vehicles, this would be regenerating from the destruction of critical parts such as the engine.
- Examples: Camp Spirit Moon Residence (Goosebumps), Art the Clown (All Hallows' Eve), the infected tubbies from Slendytubbies
High-Mid: Able to regenerate from being blown or chopped into pieces.
Low-High: Able to regenerate from a non-solid state, such as a puddle, a drop of blood, a single cell, or mush. This level of regeneration can also be obtained by regenerating from a small piece of the user's body.
Mid-High: Able to regenerate from being reduced to ash, dust, smoke, vapor or a form of plasma.
High: Able to regenerate from a few or a single molecule, atom or particle.
Low-Godly: Able to restore their physical body from some sort of disembodied consciousness, like a soul, mind or some other nonphysical aspect of themself. This also includes being restored from another realm.
Mid-Godly: Able to regenerate from complete destruction of not only their physical form, but their non-physical aspect such as their soul or mind.
High-Godly: Able to regenerate even if your existence is erased and the reality you are within is destroyed. This includes the destruction of things such as their concept or history.
- Examples: Witch of Despair (Puella Magi Verse), Mario (Super Mario Bros), Monika (Doki Doki Literature Club!)
True Godly: Able to regenerate even if you are erased from both existence and nonexistence.
- Examples: Godzilla (Godzilla), Mandrakk the Dark Moniter (DC), Lord English (Homestuck)
NOTE: To qualify for True Godly regeneration, a character must be able to regenerate from being erased from the duality of both existence and nonexistence, whereas it is only necessary to be able to recover from the former in order to warrant a High-Godly rating.
NOTE #2: 1-A entities (beings beyond the concepts of dimensions) always have High-Godly regeneration (given that they are above existence per definition), but they are not automatically the highest rating. In order to qualify, such beings must also have displayed the capacity to recover from complete Outerversal destruction, or be logically capable of doing so.
NOTE #3: For characters that don't have a soul, consciousness, or some other nonphysical aspect of themselves but can regenerate their entire body from complete destruction. That would qualify as Mid-Godly regeneration.
