* 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.

* ''TenchiMuyo'': [[BigBad Kagato]] desires to acquire the power of the Juraian Royal Family and reign over the universe as its god. His name actually ''means'' "I am god who is man".

* 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.

* Happens (arguably) to two characters in ''RahXephon''. The first (and arguable) one is after [[spoiler:Ayato]] fully awakens. The second is when Bahbem watches the [[spoiler:[[EndOfTheWorldSpecial tuning of the world]].]] In [[spoiler:Ayato's case, as he just merged with the RahXephon and REMADE THE WORLD, this isn't an unjustifiable assumption.]]

* 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.
