* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Subverted. At the Last Desolation, the Heralds of the Almighty told the people that the [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Voidbringers]] had finally been defeated for good, and that the Heralds would return to the [[{{Heaven}} Tranquiline Halls]] to fight the Voidbringers there and return the Halls to glory again. The subversion is that this was all a lie; the Heralds were actually just tired of dying and resurrecting to fight every Desolation, and [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere gave up]], leaving one of their number to suffer the tortures of [[FireAndBrimstoneHell Damnation]] by himself.
-->'''Kalak:''' What do we tell the people, Jezrien? What will they say of this day?\\
'''Jezrien:''' It's simple. We tell them that they finally won. It's an easy enough lie. Who knows? Maybe it will turn out to be true.

* ''TheMalazanBookOfTheFallen'' does this to every other character. Through [[AGodAmI sorcery]], [[CameBackWrong exposure to various ancient powers]], or apparently just by being complete [[PhysicalGod badasses]], they can literally "ascend" and become godlike beings--many of the lesser gods are known as Ascendants and were once mortal.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MuneGuardianOfTheMoon,'' this seems to be what happens at the end of a Guardian's tenure: Yule, the Guardian before Mune, turns into a crescent-shaped flower, forever becoming a part of the Moon Titan. [[spoiler: So it's suspicious when Mune later meets Phospho, who claims to have been a Guardian once, but is clearly still alive. It's a sign that he was banished, rather than ending his job naturally.]]

* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': At the climax of the story, Rei set Third Impact off to bring Asuka and Misato back from the dead at the behest of Shinji. She collected two thirds of souls of the whole humankind (rather than all human souls as she did in the original timeline), pumped energies of the Warp -a dimension of pure, raw energy- into Shinji, Asuka, Misato and herself and used the harvested souls to shape their new bodies. The four of them ascended and were reborn as ''[[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} the New Chaos Gods]]''.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''[[Fanfic/RyuugisTheGamesWePlay The Games We Play]]'', Ohr Ein Sof ''weaponises'' this. It's not an attack in the traditional sense so much as dragging both user and target up from the material realm, into a plane where material things, the body, the mind, even ideas and concepts cease to be, leaving behind only the purest expression of their souls and selves. For those without a sufficiently strong self-identity, the process can be very unpleasant. When pulled up into the Truth, one might just discover that the Truth will set you free... from your existence.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}} has the Test of the Starstone, which will grant divinity to any mortal that succeeds at it. In the several thousand years since it was created, only four mortal have ever managed to do so. Aroden, who was the one that created the Test in the first place, Iomedae, Norgorber, and most famously Cayden Cailean, who performed the test on a dare, while so drunk he wasn't able to remember how he managed to do it.

** Also with Amanda from "True Q," though it is more of heritage than ascend.

* At the end of ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'', [[spoiler:the [[BigBad Uber Ethereal]] calls his own people failures of the "Ethereal Ones" for failing to ascend "as they thought we would". Given that we encounter EnergyBeings also called Ethereals in ''VideoGame/TheBureauXCOMDeclassified'', it's entirely possible that the Ethereals in ''Enemy Unknown'' are members of the race who have failed to join their brethren on the higher plane]].

* In the ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange'' fic ''FanFic/NoGraveCanHoldMyBodyDown'', Max saved [[spoiler:Arcadia Bay]] from the paradox storm by becoming something akin to its [[GeniusLoci patron spirit]]. Whether this makes her a true deity or not is deliberately left ambiguous.
