* About halfway through ''PhantomDust'', [[spoiler:Edgar, the main character's best friend, finds out that he is actually the last person left on Earth and all other life he sees was actually created by him after he learned to control the mysterious dust that he linked with the disappearance of life. Edgar is unable to accept this truth and sets out to destroy his creations since he sees them as lies and visions.]] However, at the end of the game [[spoiler:He finds out that HE'S NOT EVEN THE ORIGINAL Edgar. Apparently, the original created this duplicate to continue the recreation of Earth just before his death. Sadly, the double's personality was twisted.]]

* [[spoiler:Lezard]] in ''ValkyrieProfile'' series spends most of his time hatching up an elaborate BatmanGambit to set himself up for this in the first game and succeeds in the second, complete with his own world to govern over. He's pretty damned megalomanical and egoistic even before his grand scheme succeeds, and by the time he actually succeeds in the second game, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z50feD9SPi0 well]]...

* In ''OverlordII'', this is revealed to be the goal of Emperor Solarius, ruler of [[TheEmpire The Glorious Empire]], AKA [[spoiler:Florian Greenheart, an Elf born without magic who caused the Cataclysm that wiped out the lands of the first game when he tried to steal [[ArtifactOfDoom The Tower Heart]]. He uses all the magic he's gathered at the end of the game to become an EldritchAbomination that only his [[TheDragon Dragon]] fanatically praises as a god, from that point it's your responsibility to [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu take him down.]]]]

* During the spirit journey in the latter half of ''{{Terranigma}}'', Ark encounters a number of characters that look like other important characters he's met in the game, some with slightly altered names (Royd becomes Roy, Mei becomes Meila, etc. etc.). You are asked to go into a ruin filled with monsters to check on someone who was left there a year earlier for a ritual that could cause them to become a god. When you get there, it turns out [[spoiler:it worked, and the equivalent of Elle has, in fact, attained nigh-godly powers, immediately giving the other warriors who came to check a HannibalLecture about ''why'' this ritual even exists. After utterly destroying them, she beckons the player to choose one of the cups of god water near her. The player does, and then the spirit journey ends.]]

* At the climax of ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'', the transformed [[OneWingedAngel transformed]] [[spoiler:Metal Sonic]] (having [[PowerCopying absorbed the DNA of]] [[TheHero Sonic]], [[NumberTwo Tails]], [[TheHeavy Knuckles]], [[UltimateLifeForm Shadow]], and [[PhysicalGod Chaos]]) declares his intent to rule over the world as its "most supreme being".being" and repeatedly insists that he is the "ultimate overlord" who fears nothing. {{Downplayed}} though, as it turns out he doesn't so much want to be a god as much as he wants to prove once and for all [[spoiler:[[IJustWantToBeYou he is the "superior" and "true" Sonic the Hedgehog]]]]. Taking over the world is just a plus on the side, and when Sonic and company defeat him yet again, his VillainousBreakdown involves him screaming not that he is a god, [[spoiler:but that he is the '''real''' Sonic]].
