* Many religions create a cult of personality around their gods and especially the human founder of their belief system: Christians have JesusChrist, Jews have Moses and Abraham, Muslims have the Prophet Muhammed, Buddhists have Siddhartha Gautama, Scientologists have L. Ron Hubbard and Majority of Raelians have Raël (Claude Vorilhon).

* A key part of the Forsaken in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' is their blind obedience to Syllvanas which ''was'' second only to revenge on the Lich King. Her face is the dominating feature of the forsaken icon, their EliteMooks are to a man {{Expy}}s of her, a female Elf, in a primarily human organization. Unlike other races, whose leaders all still have ''some'' degree of loyalty to their people and further their cause varying from [[TheGoodKing Varian, Thrall, Vol'jinn, Baine, and Genn]] to [[MasterRace even]] [[EntitledBastard Garrosh]], Sylvannas is purely out for her own benefit and uses the Forsaken as disposable pawns.

* The concept of the Cult of Personality has classical origins. In Ancient Egypt and Rome, Pharoahs and Emperors were deified and made into Godlike figures for the people to worship. There were taboos against deificiation while the person was alive but Emperors worked around it to their advantage.

** In general, modern day of the American presidential campaigns, especially over the last fifty years involves promoting a cult of personality around a particular candidate, a cult that endures in cultural memory even after candidacy, years in office and oblivion in the form of ads, memes, and catch-phrases. UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy is a well known example, but UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan, UsefulNotes/BillClinton, UsefulNotes/BarackObama, UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump are not far behind in terms of promoting a campaign that revolved around images, posters, logos and appeals to personality and image to get people to vote for them.

Added DiffLines:

* Twilight Sparkle of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has had to endure some of this since her ascension to princess-hood in the Season 3 finale [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E13MagicalMysteryCure "Magical Mystery Cure"]]. Particularly in the Season 4 episode [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E15TwilightTime "Twilight Time"]] where a group of schoolchildren begin giving the Cutie Mark Crusaders attention because they have a private study session with the Princess of Friendship and all of the kids really just want to rub shoulders with Twilight.

Added DiffLines:

* Much of superhero tropes is largely about building a Cult around certain characters complete with logos, AnimalMotif, banners and symbols. ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' in particular is a rather classic example, since most of his crime-fighting activity is about creating and making a vulnerable child orphan into a terrifying, impressive, legend and guardian of the city. Batman creates a logo around himself, acts and behaves in a certain manner, weaponizes his legend and reputation, and the city of Gotham likewise becomes a playground for his cult, with the GCPD building a Batsignal that illuminates the night, and the person of Batman being heavily associated with his city to the point that the city is seen as an extension of himself.

* In The United States UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington and UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln are certainly eligible for being featured on this page. They are highly regarded by many Americans as the most perfect presidents they ever had, to the point that Washington is believed to have "never told a lie" and Lincoln is nicknamed "Honest Abe".
