Supernatural entities may be more powerful than gods, although their powers tend to be specific and limited. They have duties and defined roles, and they are typically as old as the universe and eternal, unlike gods, who are here today and gone tomorrow , dependent on the beliefs of mortals. The main difference between The Gods and Anthropomorphic personifications is that Anthropomorphic personifications embody the said power, e.g. Time, whereas Gods simply use the powers usually to cause a bloody nuisance.
