* WonderWoman became the goddess of truth for a while, but gave it up. She seems to be an avatar for it even in mortal form, however; for example, some stories says her Lasso of Truth simply channels her inborn powers, and her very presence makes it difficult for people to lie.
* In the backstory for the DC Universe's [[ComicBook/GreenLantern Emotional Spectrum]], this is apparently the origin of the Lantern entities. The first creature to experience a given emotion (for example, a bug in fear of a predator, or an enraged bull) became a kind of AnthropomorphicPersonification of that emotion.

Added DiffLines:

Not to be confused with AnthropomorphicPersonification. To be clear, an Anthropomorphic Personification is more often than not what results from this. This trope is when somebody becomes the concept, not the concept itself.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' is the former TropeNamer and gave us the Alternative Title: Becoming Hope. Explanation is a spoiler for all the series: [[spoiler:Madoka's wish turns her into a Goddess, and then a witch (a creature that radiates despair) - but she uses her immense power to ''destroy'' said witch and lives on as the abstract concept of hope, existing beyond time and space. Her influence allows all the magical girls who have ever existed to fight without despair and die without regret.]] (And [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion the third movie]] reveals that [[spoiler:[[InvertedTrope the abstract can be made concrete again]], if you have the proper trap. This happens ''twice''.]])
** [[spoiler:Kyubey likewise confirms that Madoka has become an intangible concept.]]
** If ''Rebellion'''s events are any indication, [[spoiler:Homura]] is on the fast track to becoming love. [[spoiler:Her wholehearted devotion to Madoka, coupled with the karmic repercussions of turning back time so often (which heightens both girls' magical potential) enables her to survive the shattering of her Soul Gem. She becomes not a witch, or a magical girl, but ''something'' capable of rewriting the universe]].
