Default Godlike Extra Effort Dodge

Anyone used the Godlike Effort rules with things like Attacks, Dodging, etc.

I think the standard Extra Effort Dodge gives you +2 for 1 Fatigue, are there rules anywhere for getting more of a bonus by spending more?

I've got a character playing a Martial Arts Chi Master. Basically the idea for his character is that he's got a lot of Chi (which is represented by a large pool of extra fatigue). All of the supernatural things he does is by spending fatigue on Godlike Extra Effort.

So far we're pretty happy with the results, but this question came up.

The "godlike extra effort" rules are only designed to work with abilities bought as part of a power, not with mundane extra effort. That said, if you buy Enhanced Dodge as part of a power, then godlike extra effort is perfectly fine! As an example, if you have Enhanced Dodge 2 (Magic -10%), then every +50% in extra effort you use adds a further +1 to your Dodge.
