** Possibly the case with [[spoiler:Solas/Fen'Harel]]. He's quite adamant that [[spoiler:the Elven Pantheon weren't true gods, they were incredibly powerful mages, way beyond anything seen in the series thus far including Corypheus. In the Trespasser DLC when it's revealed that Solas is the Dread Wolf he makes it clear that no matter how powerful they were the Elven pantheon were enslaving the rest of their race with their powers. He created the Veil to stop their AGodAmI activities.]]

** Possibly the case with [[spoiler:Solas/Fen'Harel]]. He's quite adamant that [[spoiler:he doesn't consider the Elven Pantheon to be true gods, despite being a member himself. Whether or not he's actually divine is left unclear, but many elves do believe in the Dread Wolf, and legends certainly paint him as something more than mortal.]]

* Franchise/{{Superman}} has been the recipient of worship, and even the odd church or two set up in his name. He's been described as an angel on a number of occasions. This makes him very uncomfortable, though his discouragement has often times only increased the faith of his followers.

Batman's file on Superman in ''ComicBook/{{Justice}}'' in the supplementary materials states that Superman is a god, but thankfully doesn't think of himself as one.

** However, in ''The Hunger'', ComicBook/{{Darkseid}} refers to Galactus as a "star god".

* A variant in ''[[{{Tron20}} Tron: Ghost in the Machine]].'' Jet realizes what being a User means in the context of that universe, and ''does not'' handle the revelation well. One of the opening scenes shows him hunkered down in his [[HonoraryUncle Honorary Uncle's]] shuttered arcade, afraid to even ''touch'' a computer. Finding out humanity coded up an entire ServantRace of AIs by pure accident is bad enough, but it's even more justified because his trip to {{cyberspace}} was all about stopping greedy and vicious humans from exploiting and enslaving the Programs.

* Even though human Users are considered deities by the Programs of the {{Movie/Tron}} universe, [[{{Tron20}} Jet Bradley]] wants as little to do with it as possible. Being nearly killed by security forces for blasphemy and seeing an invasion of greedy humans seeking to enslave and conquer the digital world probably soured him on the idea. It's played up more in the spin-off comic where the revelation of what being a User ''means'' in that universe [[GoMadFromTheRevelation didn't do his sanity any favors]]. He admits to a shrink that the power is way too much to handle.

** A common [[UsefulNotes/{{Christianity}} Christian]] argument for the deity of {{Jesus}} is that he ''[[AvertedTrope didn't]]'' respond this way when people worshiped him. Since it would be sinful for anyone but {{God}} to accept worship, Jesus can be considered a holy man, despite not saying "Don't worship me", only if he is GodInHumanForm - otherwise he would have been deceitful by not saying "don't worship me".

* Pops up near the end of ''FanFic/TheImmortalGame'': [[spoiler: Twilight taps into the full power of the Elements of Harmony during the [[StormingTheCastle Battle of Canterlot]], and acknowledges to herself that she's become a PhysicalGod... and she's ''horrified'' by the concept, stating that ''nopony'' should have that much power.]]

* The legend of King Canute and the Waves qualifies, as long as you don't forget the [[AnAesop Aesop]] at the end. Canute was a Norse king with a seat in England in the 10th century. The story goes that he had his throne brought to the seashore while the tide was out. He sat and [[AGodAmI commanded the tide]] not to insult its sovereign by flowing in and getting his feet wet. This command, naturally, was ignored, and Canute's name is nowadays used proverbially to indicate that someone is failing to grasp that their authority has limits. ''However'', the original story continues. With his feet wet, Canute retreated above the surf and proclaimed to his assembled courtiers that "kings" have no real power, which belongs only to God, and he never wore his crown again.

* ''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.]]
