It is unclear whether the following characters actually were planeswalkers.

Not planeswalkers

The following characters are often thought to be planeswalkers, but have been confirmed not to be ‘walkers in revisionist continuity. The ones with an {cross} behind their name were planeswalkers in prerevisionist continuity but have been ret-conned into not being them since then.



The following people have been confirmed to be planeswalkers in prerevisionist continuity and could still be in revisionist continuity. The ones with a {tick} behind their name have been confirmed to be planeswalkers in revisionist continuity as well.

The following characters were planeswalkers in prerevisionist continuity, but have been demoted (or promoted) from that status in revisionist continuity.

The following characters were called planeswalkers in the Greensleeves Cycle, but those books were released before the power-level of planeswalkers was clearly established, thus it is difficult to say if they were really planeswalker in the true sense of the word. It must be noted, however, that Kuthuman, Garth and Greensleeves herself have been described as having almost god-like powers, which seems to confirm that they had a planeswalker's spark.

  • Chaney: Chaney's status as a planeswalker is contested. She is described as having considerable powers (she can manipulates the flowing of time) and she was surely able to planeswalks in her youth, however she grows old and dies like a mortal woman: if this means that she hasn't a proper spark or if she simply chooses to die remains unknown.
  • Garth One-Eye
  • Greensleeves
  • Kuthuman

Then there is one person who was given the power of a planeswalker by Geyadrone Dihada. Planeswalker powers cannot be gained this way in revisionist continuity, but it is possible Dihada only activated his latent spark.


It is unclear whether the following people were actual planeswalkers or not.

Not planeswalkers

Its often thought that the Elder Dragons were planeswalkers, but in prerevisionist continuity it was mentioned that their power was “almost like that of planeswalkers”.

Note that Arcades Sabboth and Nicol Bolas never appeared in prerevisionist stories, although the latter was shown as a ‘walker in revisionist continuity.
