The concept of Exis is from one of Author's previous works within Talse Uzer Story (The universe in which TOG is set). Exis are being swith Absolute power in TUS universe hence also in TOG.
Its gathered from the authors blog that Phantaminum is one of the top 5 Exis in the TUS universe.
this is what i got from Batoto forumsQuote:
so how much do you think these beings will affect TOG? Is baam going to become one?

Ah didn't know that, though I remember SIU saying that Phantaminum could destroy the TOG story. Sounds like a very interesting concept, Baam might even be one of these Exis. I still don't really like the "they are made, not born" part because I would prefer it if Baam wasn't made (which indicates that he's something artificial). It's still possible though and it would explain why he was completely alone in that cave.
And if the Exis really play that huge of a role, Phantaminum will most likely appear again at some point (or maybe even another Exis).
I also read it somewhere before and i´m impressed by the author, who planned this whole story
It wouldn´t be suprising if Enryu, Zahard and Urek Mazino are also Exes, just not as strong as Phantaminum.
I also wouldn´t like Baam to be made, but it looks like thats the way it will go, just wondering how he wants to explain the cage, maybe Zahard feared Baam and used one of his powers as a god to change him, delete his memories, so that he must learn everything he could do from scratch. But thats a little farfetched...
Off topic: It looks like SIU made a world in his mind and is now telling us his story step by step, he´s a genius...
It wouldn´t suprise me if this goes for another 10-15 years until all the puzzle pieces are in place and we can truely see the final picture. Maybe at that time, TOG/TUS/SIU will be more famous
What i gathered from different forums is TOG is his second manga not first the first one is Carnival and it was also set in TUS universe, but it had nothing to do with the Tower.
SIU retreated that one for TOG to be his official first release or sth by which time he is already a matured manhwa author with a good planning of the story(i mean TOG story)
If the info given to us about the Exis is true then possibly Enru is also an exis may be weaker than Phantaminum but an exis
because we know that shinso turns red around his presence and he killed a frigging guardian + some says he can create life using shinsoo
i am sure Urek is not one yet what we have gathered is that Urek is just ONE HELLUVA powerful guy in the tower but these kind of high and mighty feats like Phantaminums raid in teh tower palace rendering every one hapless and scared and then vanishing without a trace + enru actually killing a guardian is sth that he never dared to show yet.
i think you need to be powerful enough to merit yourself to be an Exis and then some force say Exis association lol may bestow some changes in the way of using your power hence shinsoo changes into sth different and its usage becomes exotic
well so far most are wishful thinking and long shot prediction so feel free to differ

northerncolors translated them as Axis/Axes, he translated the authors comment about them directly from SIU's blog.
Sounds like they really are the only ones that clearly change the "tale" of TUSQuote:

More info about the Axis/Exis, translated by northerncolors
I wonder if this confirms that there's no exis in Tower of God besides Phantaminum o___O the text states that even Zahard or Enryu can't beat Phantaminum because you need to be an Exis too to interfere with one. Now if Phantaminum shows up again hell will break looseQuote:
i would love to see that and couple that with Baam becoming exis in later part / last part of the story nd le end.Quote:
i think that the whole set up is more like western comics where you have a single universe where one story is some how or another related with the other stories in the universe
like say clamps
if that is the case then if baam becomes an exis we will see his effects in other works of the author if he pursues them that is
I´m interested in how you inteprete the "made" part, because I thought, when the author goes out of his way to write it specially that they have to be made, I think it can´t be born, because every normal one have to be born, so what would be so special about that part? Sadly we´ll not see anything about the Exis, even though the talse uzer story is supposed to be about the "uzers"/the exis, thats why I thought, hey Tower of God is mostly about Baam, and TUS is supposed to be about the Exis => Baam=Exis?
Would be too good to be true

There are talks of this entity called King amongst the Exis (he is not Jahard) the Guy is probably one of the strongest Exis may be more powerful than Pahntaminum

some of the images are not working try opening it as a link
that might work
That's a lot of information concerning Pentaminum... Hard to believe but if SIU says it...
I don't understand the fact of making Pentaminum an Exis. It destroy completely the character, now the chance that he appear in ToG are smaller because what is interest of incorporate a god (unstoppable , immortal) in the story. If he appears he can destroy every thing and no one can stop it.
It's better if SIU talk about them (Exis) as a legend or a myth in ToG.
And if Baam is one of them, I hope he will became one at the end of ToG or as late as possible, no interest to follow a god in his play garden...
For the fact that they are made, I think is oneself or somebody else that can awake the power of Exis in a man. To make maybe refers to make awake an Exis and not create.
I wanted to know if all what is said about Exis came from SIU or if it is someone who speculate about them.

hmm half or more than half is inference from the Authors blog or previous works. Phantaminum has yet to make a debut appearance.
From what we can gather that Exis are on a different dimensions when compared to regular people, but there are different levels of Exis
Phantaminum is considered to be one of the 5 strongest Exis.
We have seen that the Exis fought a war within themselves and that any one can be an exis if he can manage to awaken the power but its not easy and very few become exis
Exis are not born.
How far the Exis has effect on TOG is still an unanswered question, but as phantaminum and his deeds were was mentioned we can surmize that atleast some thing will be shown.
May be Phantaminum is the last villain that baam must defeat after becoming an exis
who knows what will happen
so far what we are seeing in TOG can very well be described by akraptor himself. He said to prince and Yeon that they are bickering to be who is the second strongest, because no patter what Baam is the strongest regular
ie the rest of the tower are fighting/ betraying/ training etc to get powerful in the second tier because the exis' are the strongest race of people
even the weakest one can obliterate the strongest non exis
BTW Enryu and Zahard are non Exis people (so far we know from speculation)
The important part for TOG readers:
1. Phantaminum, right now, is the only Exis in the Tower. That means Baam is not. And also that we probably won't see Phantaminum fight (he might and, I hope, will appear, but there wouldn't be much of a fight ).
2. The main story of TUS is basically a story revolving around Exis, while TOG has little relation to it. So I doubt TOG will, at some point, turn into a story where people become Exis like mushrooms after a rain and I even doubt that Baam will become and Exis and pwn everyone and it'll be Baam vs Phantaminum. That'd spoil the story.
3. The "made" part is explained. It seems to hold more of a figurative meaning, because it's stated that anyone can awaken into being an Exis (no, no reason to think that it has to be with help).
to me born , means he just born has a exis , with no works , no progression , it just is . ..
but made in my opinion : means to become ..
Maybe the tower is a place to become a exis , hence , being "Made" ( progression)
and i dont think that baam couldnt become a exis , i mean , i dont see why it would defeat the story ...
using shinshoo is basically using field of god ! and some high ranker explained that if used right you could become pretty much a god --- exis ... anyhow , i think all that is just figurative .. it just mean someone is really powerful ...
and considering that tower of god is one of the best masterpiece ive encountered so far ..any suggestion for some other as interestings reading ???
and do anyone knows of some TUS names ? where can we read them?

Perhaps the top of the Tower holds some secrets that are even usable by beings like Exis. Maybe Phantaminum doesn't want to be an Exis any more, and thinks he could achieve that by climbing the Tower. Who knows.
