** The underlying problem is that Chaos is made of ''emotion''- the four main gods are made of rage, desire, hope ([[GodOfEvil yep]]), and depending on the interpretation, despair/love. The only way to truly destroy Chaos is to kill everything that can feel... [[OmnicidalManiac which is the Necrons' master plan]].

* In one ComicBook/XMen'' annual, ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} acquires godlike power by touching the Macguffin of the story. Though he spends a moment DrunkWithPower, he quickly comes to the realization that he has no right to use that power on anyone, even with the "noblest" of motives/justifications, and gives it up by destroying the item.

* [[spoiler: Yashiro Isana]] in ''Anime/{{K}}'' never wanted to be the [[spoiler: Silver]] King, and is uncomfortable with his Clansmen's reverence of him. Most of the kings have this to some extent, but he fits the most as the [[spoiler: most powerful and only immortal King]].

* A recurring thematic element in ''Manga/MobPsycho100'' is the protagonists' belief that being an Esper doesn't make you inherently superior than anyone else. Most of the antagonists have to have his ideal beaten into them, turning into better people.

* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', this is a defining character trait for Harry. As the son of Thor, he is literally a demigod, and is constantly growing in power to the point of potentially being one of the most powerful gods of all. However, even he is disturbed at how powerful he already is, and spends a long time in denial about just what his new situation means. Even then, he's still uncomfortable with the thought of being worshiped. This is best shown during the climax of the first book's FinalBattle, when [[spoiler: [[EldritchAbomination Chthon]] attempts to pull a GrandTheftMe on him, offering him enough power to [[RewritingReality reshape reality]] to his whim. Harry responds by [[ShutUpHannibal telling him to stuff it]], and [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu banishing him from reality]].]]

In ''[[Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF Resurrection 'F']]'' he again denies having any interest in obtaining deific status: he just wants to become stronger.

* In the [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Star Trek: TNG]] episode "Who Watches the Watchers", a misunderstanding leads to the Captain is mistaken for a god, called "the Picard" by primitive aliens. Their worshipful behavior deeply disturbs him and he goes to great lengths to correct it, up to and including a direct violation of the Prime Directive (which in this case has already been violated by the accidental exposure) by bringing the aliens' local leader up to the Enterprise for a guided tour. He makes a valiant attempt to explain that humans are more like SufficientlyAdvancedAliens (and far from omnipotent or perfect). The leader finally accepts it after seeing them try and fail to save the life of an injured crewman. Later, Picard was willing to have his first believer shoot him with an arrow to finally dissuade him.
