* Earth's god in ''Manga/DragonBall'' falls into this category, where essentially anyone strong and pure of heart can qualify for the role. The current god even considers giving it to [[IdiotHero Son Goku]] at one point. Note that as Kami is a RubberForeheadAlien, and Goku is a {{Human Alien|s}}, actually being a native Earth species ''isn't'' a requirement.
** In ''[[Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods Battle Of The Gods]]'', it is revealed that Saiyans can do a temporary version of this: in times of crisis, five good-hearted Saiyans can combine their energies into a sixth and have him become the "Super Saiyan God". [[spoiler:Goku does this but somehow retains a portion of the Super Saiyan God powers after it was supposed to have worn off, and Whis suggests that Goku could one day become the new God of Destruction (Goku declines).]]
** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' has an inversion. [[spoiler: Goku Black is the result of an alternate version of [[MadGod Zamasu]] taking over Goku's body, thus attaining a mortal form.]]
* The elevation of Yurie, the title character of ''{{Anime/Kamichu}}'' to divine status in much the same way as listed in Myth below, kick starts the plot and her learning how to deal with her new status is a significant point in many episodes.

*** While "deity" might be too strong of word (unless the theory that is an aspect of the Daedric Prince Mephala is true), the [[OneBadMother Night Mother]] is, at the very least, an exceptional spirit with greater than usual influence within the mortal world and it is generally believed that she was once a mortal woman. A [[MysteriousPast mysterious figure]], the Night Mother leads the Dark Brotherhood, an illegal [[MurderInc assassins guild]] whose members typically take a [[PsychoForHire sadistic glee]] in killing and who practice a ReligionOfEvil, worshiping the "Dread Father" Sithis, the [[GodOfEvil primordial "Is-Not" antithesis of creation]] represented by [[ThePowerOfTheVoid a great void]]. According to legend, the Night Mother was once a mortal woman who [[OffingTheOffspring sacrificed her five children]] in the name of Sithis, and became the wife of Sithis after her death.

*** Similarly, this is the goal of the "Psijic Endeavor", a process preached by the Chimeri mystic St. Veloth and later built upon by Vivec. It is a process, taught to Veloth by the Good Daedra, which supposedly allows mortals to ascend to divinity.

* In Myth/NorseMythology the sun and moon were once a girl and boy respectively, that [[JerkassGods Odin]] made into divine beings and had them chased by wolves until the end of time. Several gods are also speculated to have been based on historical figures.

*** The [[CatFolk Khajiit]] consider the legendary ImpossibleThief Rajhin to be their God of Thievery.

* Played with in ''Anime/TheGirlWhoLeaptThroughSpace''. The humans built space-colony super-computers that will prove for all the humans' needs, and they ''do'' fulfill their purpose, but is it the be-all and end-all of things?

*** This was one of the primary teachings of the Alessian Order, a [[FantasticRacism rabidly anti-Elven]] [[TheChurch religious sect]] which established a [[TheTheocracy Theocracy]] in the 1st Era that wielded nearly as much power as the Emperor at its height. One of their teachings was that of "Ehlnofic Annulment", a means by which a mortal could break the cycle of life and death to [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence ascend to "Proper-Life"]]. They preached that this was the ideal for all mortals to aspire to.

*** Trinimac was a prominent deity among the early [[OurElvesAreBetter Aldmer]] and served as the champion of [[TopGod Auri-El]]. Trinimac was a [[WarGod warrior spirit]], said to be the strongest of the et'Ada ("original spirits"), and in some places was even more popular than Auri-El. As Aldmeri society evolved, commoners stopped worshiping their own ancestors and began worshiping the ancestors of their social "betters", elevating them to the level of gods [[GodNeedsPrayerBadly through collective adulation]]. Trinimac was one such ancestor. After being eaten and excreted by [[ManipulativeBastard Boethiah]], Trinimac would become the Daedric Prince [[AllTheOtherReindeer Malacath]].
