* In ''VideoGame/{{Darkspore}}'', the player character is a Crogenitor, a {{Precursor}} who's spent the last millenium in cryosleep. This may be a mixture of both types, though.

to:

* ''VideoGame/{{Spore}}'' puts you in position of an almighty being in charge of your own personal galaxy and tasks you in guiding a species from a single-celled organism to a far-reaching galactic empire, influencing their development through LegoGenetics and [[KarmaMeter decisions you make through each stage]]. Also qualifies as this if you've been in the space stage for awhile. Destroy a planet? Easy. Create life and then uplift them to a space faring empire? Done. Turn a dead rock into a lush planetary oasis? Yep.

* Every "major" character in ''ValkyrieProfile'' either starts out as a god of some kind, or becomes one when Lenneth Valkyrie picks them up to be her einherjar (they even get their goodhood ranked), except for the character Celia, which is by some regarded as having the saddest storyline because of the fact that she doesn't die, everyone else does and she's left alone.

* Notably averted in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind''. Despite being in possession of the three tools necessary to to become a god in the presence of [[CosmicKeystone Heart of Lorkhan]] where godhood can be extracted, you're never given instruction on how to do so. You're only choice is to use the tools to destroy the enchantments on the Heart, unbinding everyone who had previously used it to achieve godhood, including the BigBad. It's not all bad though, as you get to keep your SemiDivine status, including being TheAgeless and having IdealIllnessImmunity as a result of the disease you have which was based on the power of the Heart.

** At the end of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'''s ''Shivering Isles'' expansion, [[spoiler:the mantle of Sheogorath, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[MadGod Madness]], is passed on to you]]. The effects are not immediately apparent, but by the time of ''Skyrim'' 200 years later, [[spoiler:the Sheogorath met in that game is heavily implied to be the [[PlayerCharacter Champion of Cyrodiil]] having fully grown into the role]].
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', the [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]] is a rare mortal gifted with the soul of an Aedric (loosely angelic) entity by the [[TopGod Chief God]] of the [[SaintlyChurch Divine pantheon]], Akatosh. Some sources suggest that the dragons (and Dragonborn) are not merely Akatosh's creations, but fragments of his very being, meaning that you could be part of Akatosh himself.

* You have a sort of character in ''VideoGame/BlackAndWhite'', but you never see it and supplicants address the screen directly. The other gods you see are points of light with a hand.

And in the sequel if you're playing for too long the game starts [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou calling you by your real name]].

* ''TabletopGame/GeniusTheTransgression'', a fan-written NewWorldOfDarkness game about playing mad scientists. Letting characters become powerful enough to change history or conquer the world was a deliberate design goal.

** This is also [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in The Sims 2 (PSP), which the main antagonist, a mad scientist called Doctor Dominion, claims that an "outside force" uses a green crystal (the plumbob, that appears above the heads of sims controlled by the player) to control everybody.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'', wherein you play already heroic mortals granted power by the gods to become veritable divinities in their own right. Or corrupted versions of these divine champions that serve {{Eldritch Abomination}}s. Or TheFairFolk, who in this world are more than powerful enough to qualify for the trope. [[PunyEarthlings Or, if you feel like dying, ordinary mortals.]]
** Infernals can eventually evolve into new Primordials. As in, the beings that ''created'' the gods.

As in, the beings that ''created'' called ''[[OurTitansAreDifferent Titans]]'', resembling Primordials (the beings who created ''the gods''), yet still retain some beneficial human traits and are able to choose powers à la carte to avoid being BlessedWithSuck. Of course, going being the gods.back of an entire pantheon of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s to even start the transformation is extremely difficult.

* The original ''DungeonsAndDragons'' just had a list of mythological creatures for it's 4th supplement ''Gods, Demigods, & Heroes''; while ''Basic Dungeons & Dragons'' had the ''Immortals Rules'' box, detailing the transition of a character into divinity. Although the word "god" was never uttered to avoid the wrath of the MoralGuardians.
** The First Edition ''Advanced Dungeons & Dragons'' book ''Deities & Demigods'' didn't even bother and just made ascended characters into [=NPCs=].
