** Orochimaru's self-stated goal is to learn all ninjutsu and discover their origin, which led him to covet the Uchiha Clan's Sharingan. After researching Madara and decoding the Uchiha Tablet, he learned of the Sage of Six Paths and wanted to acquire the Sage's god-like power. To this end, Orochimaru unsuccessfully attempted to attain Sage Mode, developing his [[OneWingedAngel Nature Transformation]] [[SoulJar Cursed Seals]] instead; and developed the [[ShootTheShaggyDog incorrect]] hypothesis that the Rinnegan could be attained by reuniting the Sage's bloodlines, the Senju and Uchiha clans. To this end, he figured out how to [[BodySurf transfer his soul into a host body]] and experimented to see if it was possible to transplant [[GreenThumb Hashirama Senju]]'s cells[[note]]Which would also let him use Wood Release and control the Tailed Beasts.[[/note]] into others, succeeding with Yamato and Danzo. His efforts to acquire an Uchiha as a host, however, have continually backfired and gotten him killed ''twice''.

* Most antagonistic espers in ''Manga/MobPsycho100'' show this attitude in regards to their powers making them inherently superior to normal humans. Most of them end up on the receiving end of a KirkSummation from the protagonists, who reject the idea of espers being better than humans due to their powers. Also of note is the spirit Dimple, who's main motivation is to have himself [[spoiler: and, later, Mob,]] worshipped and revered as Deities for their powers.

* This trope is the main reason why [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Kyon, Yuki, Mikuru and Itsuki]] spend so much time, effort and stress to keep [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Haruhi]] from finding out she is a [[spoiler:RealityWarper.]]
* In ''KamichamaKarin'', the titular character's magical girl form is that of an actual goddess. Her transformation {{catchphrase}} is "I am God".

* ''LightNovel/FateZero''. Gilgamesh considers the whole world his garden and considers the other Heroic Spirits, including KingArthur and UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat, as peons and false kings compared to him. He is partially justified in-universe by his status as the first Heroic Spirit and the King of Heroes, and by the fact that his power does, in fact, dwarf that of all the other Heroic Spirits.

* Creator/OsamuTezuka's ''{{Phoenix}}'': volume Future, has main character Masato Yamanobe fill the role of God. Masato must begin the evolution of Earth anew when the current world is devastated by nuclear war (and it is hinted that this isn't the first time life on Earth has been obliterated). Masato doesn't want to be god and in fact tries to discourage the people he helps create from thinking of him in that way. The real god of the story is the eternal Phoenix, who gave Masato his power and immortality in the first place.

* In ''[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Macross]]'' [[spoiler:''[[Anime/MacrossFrontier Frontier]]'', the ultimate goal of the BigBad is to unite the galaxy in a galaxy-spanning [[HiveMind collective consciousness]] (whether it wants to or not) with the BigBad personally at the very top]].

* ''{{Fist of the North Star}}'' is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where guns have ceased to exist. Martial arts masters who do not walk the path of righteousness will fall victim to this mental illness and proceed to build an empire of blood, tears and tyranny before being taken down by Kenshiro.

* In ''TransformersHeadmasters'', Galvatron hatches a scheme to use the Earth as raw material to become a being akin to his creator, Unicron. When Punch, the Autobot spy learned of this plot, he uttered the words, "He's gone mad!" As if all of Galvatron's actions since the third season of the Generation 1 cartoon didn't clue us in already.

* The exact opposite also occurs: ''{{Dragonball}}'' features our green Namekian friend Kami. As you all know by now, that's Japanese for "god". Though he may be called a god, he has higher-ups in heaven and is infinitely weaker than all bad guys in Dragonball Z.
** ''DragonballZ'': In the first Broly movie of the series, Broly is able to single-handedly beat down everyone. This includes (All of which are SSJ) Goku, Gohan, Trunks, and Vegeta. After Vegeta gets beat a second time, Piccolo appears to (at least try to) save the day. He looks at the damage, and then at Broly.
-->Piccolo: "What are you, some kind of monster?"
-->Broly: "Monster? No...I'm the Devil." (In the edited version this is replaced with "I AM A DEMON!")

* In ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' this can be used to describe the power of those who have access to the higher levels of Spiral power. Lordgenome acts a lot in the fashion of a god-like king and the [[spoiler: Anti-Spiral have taken such a position concerning the whole universe dedicating themselves to protecting it.]]

* Played with, but ultimately averted in ''[[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]''. The final BigBad, King Saffron, is a WingedHumanoid with traits of ThePhoenix -- namely, he can fly, generate incredible heat (one of his attacks is [[CallingYourAttacks named]] "Instant Empire Annihilation Blast"), regenerate, and resurrect himself after dying by turning into an egg and hatching as a baby version of himself. Although he has sufficient power he could conceivably be considered a deity (at least a kami), he is never referred to even by his human opponents as a god. {{Fanon}}, on the other hand, calls him a god all the time, presumably due to early fan translations. And then there's Rouge, who was CursedWithAwesome at Jusenkyo to transform into an Ashura version of herself. This gives her [[KillItWithFire fire breath]], [[ShockAndAwe lightning bolts]], flight, and superhuman strength and endurance... additionally, an Ashura is also a literal god/demon of mythology.
