* Boarderlands2: Handsome Jack is the Joker CEO version of Comstock; the only thing he does more thoroughly than inflicting pain on the "bandit" citizens of Pandora is plaster his masked face persona across everything Hyperion. ''EVERYTHING''.

* BioshockInfinite: The Founders worship (in order): God, The Prophet, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin. They use this dubious version of Christianity to justify their racist enslavement of the lower class. Interestingly, this has led them to demonize Abraham Lincoln, so TheResistance use his face on their mech units.

* In the Philippines, a segment of [[WellIntentionedExtremist Rodrigo Duterte's]] supporters adore him so much that they are sometimes considered eligible to this trope, due to said segment thinking that all the president does is for the good of the country. As one of the nation's most polarizing figures, [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment let's leave it at that]].

-->"He's also a false god, which makes him kind of like a cult leader. So Creator/OscarIsaac and Simon Kinberg not only studied religion, but also studied the nature of cults and how they function."

* In ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'', it is revealed that [[spoiler:the students, save for Nanami, were members of Ultimate Despair, a personality cult devoted to the original Ultimate Despair herself, Junko Enoshima. Such was their devotion that when Junko died, the surviving Ultimate Despair members ''chopped up her body and replaced their own body parts with hers''. One member (thought to be [[{{Yakuza}} Kuzuryuu]]) took one of her eyes in order to 'see her despair', while [[StepfordSmiler Nagito Komaeda]] chopped off his hand and attached one of her hands to the stump. By far the most disturbing is one member (heavily implied to be Mikan) trying to [[ILoveTheDead bear children using Junko's corpse]]. ]]

* ''ComicBook/NemesisTheWarlock'': [[EvilOverlord Tomas de Torquemada]] builds the Termight death cult entirely around his person and forces everyone to worship him as the immortal god-dictator of mankind. Sometimes this is PlayedForLaughs by combining this with TheMerch -- Terrans can buy Torquemada's memoirs, Torquemada posters, Torquemada action movies, Torquemada busts, and Torquemada pillows and pyamas!
