** Omega in "The Three Doctors," whose world of anti-matter created through his sheer force of will and untold years of isolation have left him quite mad and prone to making such speeches

* ''Series/HouseOfAnubis''- While Rufus Zeno first was just a ruthless ImmortalitySeeker, he later became more ambitious and attempted to make himself into a God by using the Mask of Anubis. [[DraggedOffToHell It didn't exactly go as planned]]. Senkhara also seemed to want to become a Goddess, specifically wanting to live in the "field of golden rushes" and be admired as she believed she deserved.

* ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined'' ("Razor"). The old man hybrid states that his Centurian guardians believe him to be a god, and he doesn't dispute the claim. He certainly seems to be all-knowing, but as the protagonist proves, not immortal. Provided that all this doesn't happen again, and again, and again, and again...

* ''Series/TheOuterLimits'', "The Sixth Finger," combines both versions. An illiterate miner is put through a process that quickly [[EvolutionPowerUp evolves him]], resulting in increased intelligence and psychokinetic power, which he unleashes on the pathetic lesser beings around him; but then he evolves even further and rises above such petty emotions, realizing the true nobility of existence.

** In "The Aztecs" Barbara is [[GodGuise mistaken for a god incarnation of a dead Aztec priest, Yetaxa]]. The Doctor encourages her at first to use her sudden power to give him and the other companions free reign to explore and have a good time. Barbara has other ideas and decides to start manipulating Aztec politics to abolish HumanSacrifice, getting increasingly power-crazy all the time. She claims that she might as well be a god as she knows what will happen to the Aztecs, and once, when the Doctor gives her a lecture about the dangers of trying to change history, shoots him down by announcing "not Barbara - [[BecomingTheMask Yetaxa]]".
** In "Genesis of the Daleks," OmnicidalManiac Davros is asked, if he had in his possession a virus that would wipe out all life, would he release it? His response:
--->"Yes... yes. To hold in my hand a capsule that contained such power... to know that life and death on such a scale was my choice. To know that the tiny pressure on my thumb, enough to break the glass, would end everything. Yes - I ''would'' do it. That power would set me up above the ''gods''! ''[[LargeHam And through the Daleks, I shall have that power]]''!"
** Played with in the original series serial "The Armageddon Factor", when the Doctor, possessing the full power of the Key To Time, starts making an A God Am I speech, much to Romana's alarm. [[spoiler:He's just kidding/making a point about how dangerous the power is, in anyone's hands.]]
** The 1982 story "Four to Doomsday" focuses an alien who not only believes himself to be a god but, in fact, destroyed his home planet in an attempt to travel back in time to the creation of the universe to see how he had created it.

** In 'The Waters of Mars', [[spoiler:the Doctor]] snaps after being pushed to the limit and declares himself to be, in essence, a god. And he is not under any sort of mind control--nor can he be said to be having delusions of grandeur, since his claim to godlike power is entirely accurate. Rather, he's giving us a glimpse of what [[spoiler:the last of the Time Lords could become without the restraint that his Companions give him.]] Having said that, he is promptly snapped back after [[spoiler:Brooke commits suicide]] rather than muck around with her destiny, so it worked out in the end. Sort of.
