* In the ''Manga/MazingerZ'' series, Kouji Kabuto's grandfather tells him that Mazinger Z can use its power to become a god or a devil. This is most likely in the figurative sense as Mazinger Z could trounce humanity if Kouji ever went bad. In ''Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}}'', Professor Kabuto boasts that Mazinkaiser can ''surpass'' god and devil and in ''Manga/MazingerZERO'', Mazinger Z actually ''becomes a god''!

** Pain, the leader of Akatsuki, thinks that his suffering has made him enlightened and his power made him God. [[PersonOfMassDestruction It's not entirely unjustified]]. Though, [[ValuesDissonance it's worth noting]] he means more in a Shinto/Buddhist sense of a god rather than the omnipotent Christian one (in short, he doesn't have any illusions about being invincible).

This arguably turns out to be more of a GodGuise, as, while he presents himself as a god to the people in Amegakure, Nagato himself is extremely well aware of his own mortality.

* In ''Anime/GargantiaOnTheVerdurousPlanet,'' [[spoiler:Kugel's [[HumongousMech Machine Caliber]], Striker]] turns out to be running her own fleet, refashioned into a cult that functions similarly to the Galactic Alliance of Humanity. Interestingly, her motives are more UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans than ego, even suggesting that by ruling humanity, [[spoiler:she's still fulfilling her function, becoming their collective will and thus making all of them her "users"]].

* ''Manga/InuYasha'': When Rin was killed by wolves, Sesshoumaru decided to test Tenseiga's power by restoring her to life. When it worked, he concluded Inuyasha was a fool for having let him live, believing he now had no need to fear death. This is eventually lampshaded by his own mother who accuses him of thinking he had become a god and that he was very mistaken to believe he was immune to death. [[spoiler: She proves this point by putting Sesshoumaru through TrainingFromHell against a foe that is immune to Tenseiga. Rin dies in the process for a second time, whereupon Sesshoumaru learns that Tenseiga can only ever revive a life once. Only when the truth about his god complex and the value of compassion sink in does his mother restore Rin back to life.]]

* ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'': After 29th Bam/Jyu Viole Grace learns his group won't help the Name Hunt Station to sort its problems out after liberating them because "they're not gods" he [[AllLovingHero wishes he was]] just for a moment (this was after an arc that featured him [[spoiler: absorbing billions of angry souls without any problem, or as his bad side put it ''he thoughtlessly '''ate''' billions of souls'' because he's capable of {{Megamanning}} or CannibalismSuperpower[=s=] ]]). Then the leader of a criminal organization shows up by introducing himself as "The God of FUG", blows up a train, and attacks Bam's friend who happens to be one of their strongest fighters. FUG used Bam as their "Slayer Candidate" for a while (that's where he got the name Jyu Viole Grace) and several within the group considered him to be their god of change ([[AGodIAmNot he declined]], though he's determined to change the ruthless nature of the Tower).

** Zamasu from ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' is an interesting variation, in that he technically ''is'' a god, but only one of a great many in the setting. However, his differing ideals of the purpose of the gods leads him to [[spoiler: not only attempt genocide of all mortal beings, but to commit mass deicide in order to make himself the ''only'' god]].

** 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 many experiments he 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''.
