I still think she could most definitely be a god, albeit a really low-tier one.

We know that sea creatures are made of divine energy like The Memory. The ritual she used involves sacrificing (possibly absorbing into herself) a few sea creatures. It's totally possible to ascend to godhood purely on absorbing divine energy alone. (Look at Gielinor.)


True, but right now my biggest sticking points are that immortality/invincibility alone really isn't enough to be considered a god in my book (might be close, but besides using that little ritual granted power to not die, she hasn't exactly shown signs of...well...doing anything else that gods can do), and we don't know for sure what happened during the ritual that transformed her in the first place.

Granted, that doesn't necessarily rule out godhood entirely. If anything I'd venture to say she's most likely on the same level as maybe the Guardians of Guthix or some other low powered divine things that are right on that edge between 'real' godhood and very strong mortal. But that's being generous unless I'm missing something here. O_o

That could actually be so....
When a god kills another one, they realize quite quickly that they're gods themselves now... I thought, that is

but Marimbo didn't know what she was after accidentally killing whocareswhathisnameis... so it's quite possible that sometimes people become gods and dont know it

Zuzu also killed a wielder of an elder artefact. We know that it is possible to ascend to godhood from just being around an elder artefact for a long time(because elder artefacts shed off divine energy.) I believe a jmod said we could even become gods with The Measure, but that would take an extremely long time because it was so weak of a stick.

When Marimbo had the horn, she described the horn as shiny and glowing—a sign that the horn too radiates divine energy :O

Quin has been the current owner of the horn for quite a while. Maybe some of the energy radiating from the horn shed off onto her and was transferred over to Zuzu when she stabbed her in the heart. The divine energy from Quin + the one gained from the sea creatures she used to gain immortality may have been just enough to get Zuzu to low-tier godhood. That is just my headcanon theory.

Could have something to do with how they ascended now I think of it...like...

Guthix killed a god by stabbing it and ascended.

Zamorak killed Zaros with the SoA and ascended.

Bandos killed that god whose name I can't remember how to spell somehow...and ascended.

The main thread between these 3 (leaving out Sliske/Guthix because he isn't a god by his own admission) is that they had some sort of physical contact with the guy they killed. But then you have things like Marimbo who...might have had physical contact with the guy they killed somehow...but we don't know the full story, and we do know that being around divine energy under certain conditions can cause a being to ascend too (after all, Tuska had to happen somehow, and I doubt a random boar could kill a god under normal circumstances).

So who's to say a ritual with divine energy can't produce a 'god' that doesn't know it's a god? I got the feeling that the process Zu Zu used wasn't exactly common knowledge even among the mystics of the Eastern Lands, so it's not like she'd have a full/correct understanding of what happened to her if she never found out the full details of what she was doing.

You compared her to Superman in the sense of immunity, but you seem to forget... Superman can be injured, and even die. It's all about how you go about it.
If it's true that her immunity is an anima shield of some kind, which seems the be the case given the information we have, then you just need the right kind of magic.

So in a way, yes. She IS a lot like Kal-El under a yellow sun. No ordinary weapon will do it, but trust me.. everybody dies.

Is it possible that when someone kills a god, they obtain energy that they can choose to activate in order to ascend? Possibly like Sliske who, instead of ascending straight away, is choosing to use it on his wights to empower them. As for Zu Zu, perhaps the energy she got from an Elder Artefact wielder is locked in a way so she can't use it to ascend. Prepare for hell on RuneScape in Naval Cataclysm!

Zu Zu would probably be t7 at best if she's to be considered anything on the godhood scale. I can't say she's shown anything that puts her above the average mahjarrat. She's gained enhanced durability above that of most humans, but I wouldn't place her in some uber-category -
I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?
