** At one point, the Doctor tells someone that he's old enough to be their messiah (at that point, the Doctor is over 2000 years old).

Added DiffLines:

** Davros declares that releasing a virus that would destroy all life (an analogy the Doctor uses for his creation of the [[OmnicidalManiac Daleks]]) would "set me up above the gods". Many years later he still thinks like this, as shown when pushing the Doctor to commit genocide:

* Glass from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]'' has gained some [[EnsembleDarkhorse fandom notoriety]] by claiming that his swordplay is so peerless that even the gods fear it. Considering the fact that he's just the level 2 boss, this turns out to be one of the most epic cases of SuicidalOverconfidence ever.
** [[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]].

This usually involves the [[{{God}} Abrahamic God]], but not always. Regardless of which God, in a setting where Gods do exist, the character often ends up TemptingFate. They might even do it ''right in front of'' a real god. A BoltOfDivineRetribution may or may not follow.

** Also towards the end of "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS4E9MrPlow Mr. Plow]]", Homer after saving Barney's life goes into partnership with him in the snow-plow business, shouting out that if two friends stick together, not even God Himself can stop them. Cue a voice from the clouds: "Oh, really?" and the weather immediately becomes warmer, melting all the snow.

* The anime version of ''Manga/DNA2'' opens with a spoof of this: [[EstablishingCharacterMoment The first thing Karin does on-screen]] is to wonder if her ability to [[TimeTravel travel through time]] and remake DNA means she has surpassed God, before [[MomentKiller gushing on the awesomeness of the boast]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny and generally acting supremely funny]].

* There is an arc in Series/TwinPeaks where Benjamin Horne reenacts the American Civil War with models as a way of solving the personal problems that caused his nervous breakdown. However as he gets better the side he chose (the South) starts to win. As his troops are about to enter Washington D.C. he says (in an affected Southern Drawl) "Only God can stop us now; and I believe in my heart that the Almighty is a Southerner!"

* Both inverted and played straight: During the 1970s a church in Hawthorn, Victoria, Australia put up a sign saying, "What would you do if God came to Hawthorn today?", under which an UsefulNotes/AustralianRulesFootball fan graffiti'd, "Move Peter Hudson[[note]]Hawthorn Football Club's star full forward at the time[[/note]] to centre half forward!". Upon hearing of this, Hudson jokingly complained that God had never attended a single training session.

* The surnames Quirós (from northern Spain) and Garrido (from southern Spain) are rather old. So old, several lineages using either surname have the following as their family motto: «Antes de que Dios fuera Dios / Y el sol diera en estos riscos / Los Quirós eran Quirós / Y los Garrido, Garrido.» ("Before God was God / And before the sun shone in these cliffs / The Quirós were Quirós / And the Garridos were Garridos."). There has to be ''some'' truth to it, as not even the [[UsefulNotes/TheSpanishInquisition Inquisition]] took issue.
** Many academics think the "Before God was God" bit refers to the time before Christianity arrived to the Iberian Peninsula, so it's just a fancy way to say something like "Before we followed a single god.". Still, whether taken at face value or not, it's a rather strong statement about one's family.
* "UsefulNotes/JesusChrist turned water into wine, but UsefulNotes/VladimirLenin turned words into bread." - a boast in the Red Armies during the Russian Civil War.
