* The ''Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality'' series plays this straight. In the series, all significant forces -- Death, Fate, Nature, War, Time and so forth are normal humans who assumed the Office. However, most of these Incarnations are not worshiped.

*** One thing that makes Runescape's gods unusual is that many of them began as non-sapient beings, and while some of them gained sapience when they became gods, [[GooGooGodlike others did not]] for reasons that haven't been explained. Marimbo was a gorilla who gained sapience with godhood and granted sapience to all other nonhuman primates. In contrast, the boar like god Tuska did not gain intelligence and has been rampaging through the cosmos. The strangest example is Brassica Prime, a god who is an intelligent, [[CloudCuckoolander but not sane,]] CABBAGE. How this happened hasn't been explained yet.
