* The geth in ''Franchise/MassEffect'' worship Sovereign as a god, but Sovereign is kind of insulted by the comparison. Possibly subverted, however, considering that he's more disgusted by the Geth themselves, seeing them as nothing more than pawns.

** 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/FireEmblemShadowDragonAndTheBladeOfLight 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.]]

** In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout|1}}'', [[TheDragon The Lieutenant]] mentions that the [[ScamReligion Children of the Cathedral]] view him and [[BigBad the Master]] as gods. If you ask him if he believes himself to be one, he simply replies: "Of course not. We are simply the future."

* In ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' a Q takes this position on the Q Continuum. He contradicts the claim that his species is omnipotent, and compares it to how godlike a starship crew would seem to primitive species.

** Most of the Goa'uld claim to be gods, and a few [[BelievingTheirOwnLies seem to believe it]]. Ba'al however will drop the pretense when he's surrounded by those who know the truth, and acknowledges most of them are smart enough they aren't really gods.

** 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.]]

* 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.]]
