** On a True Pacifist run, [[spoiler:Flowey absorbs the six human souls ''plus'' every monster soul in the Underground (which was said on an easily-missed PamphletShelf to be equal to the power of one human soul), and takes on a OneWingedAngel form he dubs the 'God of Hyperdeath'.]]

* ''VideoGame/TheTalosPrinciple'': "Elohim" means "god", and it (he?) talks the part, claiming faith in it is necessary to proceed. On top of that, its voice is a disembodied, fairly deep, male voice, just like many depictions of the Christian God.

In something of a twist on this trope, it's Elohim's intended role to convince the player character that he's god, because [[spoiler: the world is a massive SecretTestOfCharacter, and defying him is the last thing needed to pass]]. However, he eventually figured out that this would mean the end of his purpose, and he's trying to prevent that. In so doing, he seems to have convinced himself of his own hype.

* Sanae Kochiya from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}''; informing people that she is, in fact, a living god is her CatchPhrase. Granted, she's technically ''right'', what with having the divine power to create miracles and being the direct descendent of the goddess [[spoiler:Suwako Moriya]], and all. She's classified as an Arahitogami, buth fully god and fully human at the same time.

It's mostly played for laughs, as the [[EveryoneIsASuper general power level of Gensokyo's inhabitants]] means being a god isn't really anything particularly special.

* ''AdventRising'': It is [[AGodIAmNot averted]] with the main character, Gideon, but [[spoiler:his brother or his girlfriend ([[Film/SophiesChoice whichever you let "die" first]])]] plays it straight.

* ''PhantomBrave [[VideogameRemake We Meet Again]]'' has God Eryngi, a mustachioed Funguy. No one but Marona takes his claims seriously, which causes him to spout ineffectual threats. [[spoiler: He's really the Merchant of Death, and his claims are mostly an attempt to get people to collect [[ArtifactOfDoom 'weapons']] for him.]] And the final floor of some random dungeons can be a battle against a "Self-Styled God".

* Interesting DoubleSubversion in ''VideoGame/ArTonelicoIIMelodyOfMetafalica'': the BigBad [[spoiler:Infel]] doesn't declare herself God [[{{Instrumentality}} of the new world]], instead she declares that her girlfriend [[spoiler:Nenesha]] ''is''. It's probably her way to spite the actual gods who murdered said girlfriend in front of her.

* In the original ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' trilogy, both the Gravemind and the High Prophet of Truth fancy themselves as gods. [[ThereCanBeOnlyOne Which one of them will be it]] is the main driving force behind the plot of the [[VideoGame/{{Halo 2}} second]] and [[VideoGame/{{Halo 3 third]] games. The Gravemind apparently actually believes it is a divine entity and the Flood are the pinnacle of all existence - going so far as to accuse anyone fighting against it as being a "sinner" for standing in its way. During the High Charity level near the end of ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'', Gravemind's speech turns highly biblical.

** The Forerunner Saga especially Silentium implies that the Gravemind actually is indeed a literal deity or at least related to actual literal deities. [[spoiler:It is or at least claims to be a Precursor; a race of god-like beings whom created all species in the cosmos and possibly the cosmos itself. The Precursors themselves are implied to be at least 100 BILLION YEARS OLD! Meaning far older than the universe!]]
** While the games neglect to actually spell it out, the High Prophet of Truth actually gets quite close to realizing his goal. "The Ark" is not only the command center of the Halo network and the factory that creates the rings, it is located specifically far outside the galaxy to serve as a preserve for creatures that would be protected from the rings deadly radiation. After the rings have destroyed the nervous system of all advanced creatures and the Flood has gone extinct from a lack of hosts to infect, the creatures held on the Ark would be released back on their planets. [[ExpandedUniverse According to bonus material]], this actually happened early in the history of humans. If Truth had been able to trigger the rings and destroy the Flood, the only intelligent live in the galaxy would have been his loyal minions and he would have control over infrastructure that allows him to create new civilizations on any planet he wishes. That plan fell apart once the Flood arrived on the Ark, but at that point he apparently didn't care anymore.
** Before the High Prophet of Truth's death by the Arbiter (who, ironically, was picked by the former), one of his last sentences was "My feet tread the path; I shall become a god!", which Gravemind retorts, "You will be food - nothing more!".
