    Gilgamesh's Ea

    So I was reading it on the Type-Moon wiki on the weapon since I was curious about it.

    It completely destroyed the world inside the marble reality made from Iskander but how come it didn't destroy the Earth when he used it to attack that arms from the Holy Grail?

    He did not release the whole power of it.

    I would expected Ea, whether full power or even 1%, to destroy the world completely.

    Lol no.

    Think it's only planetary in it's full power. I don't think Gil has ever released it's full power except in babylonia order in F/GO.

    Since Gilgamesh had Ea, which is something akin to a God before any existence, couldn't he have killed the Gods that forced Enkidu's death?

    @Y;

    Could you please enlighten us?

    What you need to understand about Ea at higher charges is that the primary target isn't as apparent as you think it is. It doesn't 'attack' matter, or anything contained in reality, it attacks the basic makeup of reality itself, it doesn't care what force or whatever opposes it as it's not going to deal with it, it's going one layer deeper and attacks the very thing that allows it to exist in the first place, that's why it's so scary. Gil almost exclusively uses the 'wind' or 'howling' of Ea when it 'wakes up' as attack and still easily manages to overpower things such as Excalibur, that wind is simply a sideeffect of Ea activating, that's the red energy it emits, he essentialy never uses it's actual purpose, which magical power has been said to be completely beyond any numerical scale, which is tearing apart 'reality', including basic laws such as time and space. Fragarach would skew time to attack before Ea, but it can't since Ea is working at a level much more primal than that. Gil unleashing it entirely would mean the death of existence as we know it and a birth of a new reality with Ea beeing the 'shining star that illuminates a new world' hence it's moniker 'Shining Star that split Heaven and Earth'.

    Quoting the process here:
    Performing the miracle of genesis, the attack opens an abyss capable of crushing all of creation, and the center of the storm is not calm, but rather a hole to hell itself that returns all that enters its realm to the nothingness from which it originated. The wind pressure creates a vacuum that takes all things with form, the land, the atmosphere, and the sky into the whirling void. The tumult of genesis takes everything that was nothing more than chaos which could not form any meaning, and creates a new truth that divides and distinguishes Heaven, Sea, and Earth. Within the darkness where everything is returned to nothingness, only Ea is left to shine with brilliance like a star of creation amidst the destruction, the first thing illuminating the new world.

    well.

    it's Gil and he's supposed to be OP.

    Ea/Enki is a Mesopotamian God that helped Gil in his journy in his epic alot.

    Ea is that aspect manifested as a weapon.

    I thought Ea was a god that existed before anything in existence.

    And why did he just allow Enkidu to die and revert back to a clay of mud when he's got Ea's backing?

    His Epic has the ulimativity of death as a central theme.

    Just read the Epic of Gilgamesh's summary.

    So Gil went on a journey to find immortality after Enkidu dies but failed.
