Omni Impotence

I found this definition of "Omni Impotence" on the very useful TV Tropes site, and it reminded me of the Pope:
A character has omnipotence, or near-omnipotence. However, the character ends up doing... well, not much. This could be due to a lack of imagination, lack of understanding, being overwhelmed by the power, or some other reason. They fail to reach some simple and obvious goals.
