* ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'': When Elven Prince Finrod met the Race of Men they mistook him for one of the [[CouncilOfAngels Valar]] (they had met elves earlier, but they were not like the Light Elves). Finrod dissilusioned them as soon as he was capable to, explaining that he was not a Vala but an elf, the Valar lived beyond the Western Ocean, and [[GodOfEvil the only (ex)-Vala)]] in the vicinity was ''trouble''.

** Despite how legends portray her, and despite the fact that she, and the Divine Dragons as a whole have immense powers, Naga, the Divine Dragon [[SheIsTheKing King]] insists that she is not a god of any sort. ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' takes note of this - despite saying that she is no creator at both those who carry her bloodline and their allies, Lucina in particular protests. It also doesn't stop the fact that she's worshiped as a deity in many regions of the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemArchanea Archanean]] (now Ylissean) continent, and on the continent of Valm, her ''own daughter'' Tiki is also worshipped [[spoiler: and in another world, she ''does'' become the new Naga.]]

** Whis, despite having power far ''greater'' than most gods in the Dragonball universe, has denied being a god whenever someone asks him. He's later described by the Kais as an angel.

Added DiffLines:

*Ringo in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'' vehemently denies being a god several times after the mine-robbers refer to him and the others that way. Given the amount of power they displayed during this short encounter, it's not an unreasonable assumption on the robbers' part.

* On ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill,'' [[KnowNothingKnowItAll Peggy]] believes that some Mexicans are praying to her and tells them "Don't worship me, [[NoExceptYes worship my actions]]!" Of course, she fails to realize they're forming an AngryMob under the (sort of) false impression that she kidnapped their child.

* The Eschaton, from Creator/CharlesStross's ''TheEschatonSeries'', is an AI that is distinctly god-like, but is definitely not a god. It even says that it is not god. (It would probably help if it didn't choose to say this by engraving "''I am not your God''" in big letters on a series of giant monuments that magically appeared on planets throughout the galaxy, though).

* Ardneh denied being a god at the end of the ''Empire of the East'' trilogy by Fred Saberhagen, and instructed Rolf that humanity must cease to worship limited beings. It didn't really help, because thousands of years later, at the time of the ''BooksOfSwords'' series, he was still being worshiped, despite having been dead for thousands of years.
