* Several mortal characters in Myth/GreekMythology became gods or otherwise immortal, including Apollo's son Asclepius, who became the god of healing and medicine; Ino, who raised Dionysius for Zeus and became a minor goddess of the sea, who helped Odysseus return home; the Diomedes who appeared in ''Literature/TheIliad'', raised to godhood by Athena; and most famously Hercules, AKA Herakles, who in return for saving the gods of Olympus from the Giants and for his many heroic deeds, became a god after his death. On the other hand, a mortal man fixed pots and pans to his chariot, [[TemptingFate claimed to be "Zeus the Thunderbearer"]], and got his fool self struck with lightning for the effort. Yeah. Zeus has a temper.

*** There is actually a Biblical source for this in Isaiah 12, but on the surface at least it was referring to the "King of Babylon". This may be a literal king, though is often taken to be a code word for earthly rulers who oppressed the nation of Israel, and some have attempted to interpret it in terms of spiritual rulers (hence the link to the devil). The term "Lucifer" is simply how the King James Version translated "morning star".

** Justified in the New Testament: {{Jesus}} actually ''is'' the Only Begotten Son of the Living {{God}}, and well knows it.

*** Possibly alluded to by Paul the apostle in 2nd Thessalonians, where he says that the "man of sin", the "son of perdition", will exalt himself above all that is called God or is worshiped, so that he will sit as God in the temple of God, "showing himself that he is God".

* Also, Bellerophon, who after taming Pegasus, became so full of himself, tried to fly up to and enter Mount Olympus itself. Pegasus, however, had far more sense than his master, throwing him before he succeeded, where he plummeted into a thorn bush and lived the rest of his life as a cripple. (In one version, Pegasus threw him after Zeus sent a gadfly to sting him, although that really didn't seem like Zeus' style; seeing as Zeus took Pegasus in, made him a pack horse for his thunderbolts, and then later rewarded him by immortalizing him in the heavens as a constellation, the former version seems more likely.)
