* In ''TabletopGame/{{Runequest}}'', the Empire of Wyrmfriends believed that everybody, be it mortal or god, had a secret draconic nature that everybody should have embraced. And they meant ''everybody''; it worked like an enormous pyramid scheme with the final goal of creating a messianic True Dragon, and no red lines whatsoever. Starting after the Empire's fall, the Lunar Goddess wants everybody to be illuminated and worship her, and she has assimilated even other goddesses.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': Somewhat the point of the Genestealer Cults, although {{Downplayed|Trope}} in that they do not necessarily want ''everyone'' in. In the early stages of a Genestealer infiltration, the brood will lurk around the outskirts of society, infecting individuals who will not be missed such as the homeless or people who live in isolated places. As the cult grows in size as generations pass and it's members become more human-like, the cult will begin opening seemingly benign fronts, granting them more influence and resources, while also becoming more "selective" about who is infected, targeting powerful or influential citizens. Eventually as a Tyranid Hive Fleet approaches, the cult will become more aggressive and try to stage a coup. If the coup is successful, the infected and other unfortunates are devoured and absorbed into the Hive when the Tyranids scour the place. If the attempted coup fails, it still diverts much-needed resources away from the defences.

The Feral World of Lamarno, for instance, was actually completely taken over peacefully by a Genestealer Cult which posed as a religious movement called the "Celebrants of Nihilism". When the bugs arrived, three quarters of the planet's population ''calmly marched into the waiting bio-ships to be consumed by their "living gods"''. *shudders*

* This is the goal of [[spoiler:TheEmperor and Marianne]] in ''CodeGeass''. It's essentially the same basic idea behind the [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Eva]] version, but with a different set of symbols, and no Tang involved.

* A good number of Space Empire games or ''VideoGame/{{Civilization}}''-style games with technology that goes well into the future (including ''SidMeiersAlphaCentauri'') will feature some blend of this and AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence as their ultimate technology, and the means of achieving the Technological Victory. It's worth pointing out that this is portrayed as AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence, and almost always shown as heroic and that nobody at all minds the thought of leaving their bodies behind, the way that the ragtag band of heroes ''always'' will if it wasn't their idea first. ''Alpha Centauri'' is notable because it expressly involves melding with Planet, which has been sending out creatures to inflict a FateWorseThanDeath for the entire game until then. The faction that pulls this off "wins" by having its values become predominant in the new consciousness.
** Amusingly, the transcendence victory is pretty much exactly what [[AlphaCentauri Chairman Yang]] (the most ObviouslyEvil of the faction leaders) wanted all along, regardless of who actually achieves it.

* This is the most common theory about what happened to the Dwemer in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' and why they built [[HumongousMecha Numidium]]. They used the heart of a dead god to become a singularity with Numidium as their vessel in order to survive the end of the kalpa.
