** She has, by ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'', gotten used to it, accepting it as a term of respect and affection. For their part, the Saint Church [[SaintlyChurch has lived up to their name]], treating her as her own person rather than a copy of their Jesus analogue and letting her live her life as she and her parents see fit. Though she's still highly respected for being the last descendant of the Sankt Kaiser. The manga also gives more information about Olivie, making it clear that while both she and Vivio are KungFuWizard heroines, they each have their own personality.

* Accidentally invoked in the movie ''Film/TheFifthElement''-the Embodiment Of Love was sent to Earth to protect us from a Big Ball Of Darkness. Ended up getting vaporized, but the forensics who found the wreckage were able create a clone from the few remaining cells with all of the original's memories intact, and her capacity for [[{{Badass}} badassery]] and {{fanservice}}. There's a HandWave for this: Leeloo's DNA is shown to have multiple helices, and one of the scientists describes it as having 200,000 "memo groups" (a made-up term) compared to the 40 in human DNA. The implication is that her DNA contains memory and acquired traits as well as basic growth instructions.

* The practical difficulty with cloning Jesus of Nazareth - even if the technology was advanced enough to do this - would lie in getting a tissue sample allowing DNA to be retrieved. However, TheBible informs us that following the Resurrection, Jesus was bodily taken into Heaven and did not leave behind a body. Discounting any blood traces left behind on whips, thorns, nails, et c, which at the time would have carried no significance whatever to the Romans and which might have been cleaned or recycled for the next crucifixion (thus removing or contaminating the traces at the very least), this poses a problem. However, imaginative thinkers have pointed out that Jesus would have left ''one'' small part of his physical body on earth. As a Jewish boy, on the eighth day after birth, he would, of course, have been circumcised. On this basis, at least three churches in Europe claim to be the sole ''Eglise de la Saint Prepuce'' - the Church of the Holy Foreskin. This suggests either Jesus was not as other men (or He healed himself three times..), or else there were some genius-level pardoners peddling holy relics in mediaeval times. But if one of those three churches turns out to have the real deal... cloning may be a possibility.

* This trope was parodied in AquaTeenHungerForce, when Frylock uses his cloner with a strand of what a museum claimed was Jesus' hair. He ended up with a very effeminate man in a too-short toga, who reveals he's actually Jesus' hairdresser.

* Used in the 2001 film ''Revelation'' (no relation to the film from the ''Film/{{Apocalypse}}'' series), where the KnightsTemplar attempt to clone Jesus from DNA left on the four nails used to crucify the original in hopes of using the clone as a puppet messiah to rule the world. It's implied at the end of the film that the cloned Jesus is TheAntichrist while the baby born from Mira and the late Jake's union is the true messiah since Mira was Mary Magdalene's descendant and Jake was Christ's descendant via the Merovingian dynasty. As predicted by Revelation 12.4, the baby is kept a secret from the order until he can oppose them and the Grand Master's puppet Christ.

* In ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', Vivio Takamachi was cloned by the villains from the genetic material of the messiah figure of the Saint Church, the Sankt Kaiser/Sei'ou Olivie Sägebrecht. The villains just wanted her so they could overcome the genetic lock on the Messiah's personal spaceship, though. After she is rescued, those in TheChurch who know about her heritage call her by her full title, which she's extremely embarrassed about.
