*** In another episode where Flanders gives Homer info that could give him his job back, he calls him God, which embarrassed Ned especially when Homer starts worshipping him calling him higher than Jesus.

** Another case of Aphrodite was the time that a certain woman named Myrrha had her mother boast about the same thing Cassiopeia did unto her daughter... compared to Aphrodite. She ends up cursing Myrrha to commit incest with her father, but then it turned out a bit better and showed Aphrodite's tender side when she took pity on Myrrha's son Adonis... who, in one story, died because he made a boast about being a better hunter than the resident Goddess of Hunting, Artemis. Artemis then sicced her hunting boar to kill him while Aphrodite was away.

* In ''Film/{{Clash of the Titans|1981}}'', Casseiopeia earns the wrath of the goddess Thetis by boasting her daughter was more beautiful than the goddess. She said this ''[[TooDumbToLive in the goddess's own temple]]''.

** Although sometimes it's a case of CursedWithAwesome: Wulfrik the Wanderer once declared himself the equal of any warrior, now he has to prove it by defeating every WorthyOpponent he finds, with his taunts magically preventing the enemy from refusing a challenge. Not a bad fate for a BloodKnight.
* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': Every other threat or insult from Chaos forces to loyalists involves the GodEmperor and his lacking in divinity. The loyalists tend to shoot.

* Near the start of the life of the ''PlayStation'', Sony released an ad campaign in the US that explicitly stated that the Playstation was "More powerful than God", attempting to prove that it wasn't for kids. [[MoralGuardians Unsurprisingly]], shortly afterwords, the campaign was taken down.

** [[Literature/TheOdyssey Ulysses]] would have saved himself several years of hardships had he not bragged to Poseidon to the point of refusing him a sacrifice, or mocking his son Poliphemus after blinding him. As a man of proverbial wit, you'd expect him to know better than anger the god of seas, [[WhatAnIdiot especially if you and home sweet home are hundreds miles of sea apart]].

--> Dr. Hill: "Which makes me wonder if this ''lawyer'' has any idea as to the kind of grades one has to receive in college to be accepted at a top medical school. If you have the vaguest clue as to how talented someone has to be to lead a surgical team. I have an M.D. from Harvard. I am board-certified in cardiothoracic medicine and trauma surgery. I have been awarded citations from seven different medical boards in New England. And I am never, ever sick at sea. So I ask you, when someone goes into that chapel and they fall on their knees and they pray to God that their wife doesn't miscarry, or that their daughter doesn't bleed to death, or that their mother doesn't suffer acute neural trauma from post-operative shock, who do you think they're praying ''to?'' Now, you go ahead and read your Bible, ''Dennis'', and you go to your church, and with any luck, you might win your annual raffle, but if you're looking for God, He was in Operating Room Number Two on November 17th, and He doesn't like to be second-guessed. You ask me if I have a God complex? Let me tell you something: I ''am'' God."

** [[spoiler:Ike]] from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn]]'' makes a similar boast at the end of the game [[spoiler:right to the goddess Ashera's face]]. Unlike the sucker described above, however, [[spoiler:he has the skills to back it up]].
--> '''[[spoiler:Ike]]''': Make your peace with whatever the gods worship. Your end is near.



--> Delsin: Angels? Are you kidding me right now? So either one of the escapees can make angels... or I'm going after God. And I do not like my odds in that match-up.
