* ''Film/TheGodsMustBeCrazy'' revolves around a Coke bottle thrown from an airplane into an African tribe, who see the bottle as this. Later becomes subverted when the elders see the bottle as an ill omen because everyone is fighting to use it, but they think their gods sent it to them by mistake (hence the title).

* A few are known to exist in the ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' universe: one short story shows a group of people living on a Periphery planet who, after being stranded there long enough to lose written language and all metalworking ability and thus reverting to Stone Age technology level start a new religion after one of their members sees a pair of Battlemechs fighting. There's also the infamous novel Far Country, in which a jumpship malfunction strands the passengers on a distant planet where they discover a species of primitive, bird-like aliens who worship the wreck of an old, abandoned mech.

** In the time travel mini-Game which the Sands brothers and Eviane play early in ''The Barsoom Project'', the cave-dwelling young savages are actually the offspring of time travelers who got stranded as children.

Cargo Cult is the trope when a group of people worship an object as gods or deities. This usually happens either because of its [[ClarkesThirdLaw advanced technology]], or a coincidental resemblance to figures in the local religion.
