* 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!"

* ''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.

* From ''Literature/LongForThisWorld,''' on [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aubrey_de_Grey Aubrey de Grey]], "My wife borrowed my notebook and wrote to me in big block letters: [[AC:He is more sure of himself than God.]]"
* 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.

* 1st (official) Chess world master Steinitz said he would win a game against God. Even giving God odds of pawn. (The much-reported quote is seriously [[BeamMeUpScotty in doubt]], cf. [[http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/extra/steinitzgod.html here]])

** Considering she's one of the two Biblical Witnesses from Revelations, she may get a pass.
** Considering she and Crane ''stopped'' the apocalypse, she may actually be correct!

-->'''Policeman:''' Yep. The same guy who was about to shoot an unarmed little girl. If that's the word of God, then it's been a long time since I've read my Bible.

* The ''X-Men'' graphic novel "God Loves, Man Kills" has its penultimate showdown between the team and a highly religious preacher, William Stryker, who wants to rid the world of mutants because they are not "children of God" (the story opens with two mutant children killed by Stryker's goons) at a revival. When Stryker points to Nightcrawler and questions his humanity, Kitty Pryde angrily tells the preacher that she chooses her friend over Stryker's God. Stryker points a gun at Kitty ("Let those blasphemous words, child, be your last!"), only for him to be brought down by a policeman's gun.
