* In ''Literature/TheGodsAreBastards'', the Pantheon were once mortals and got their current position by [[KlingonPromotion killing the previous generation of gods]]. It's later revealed that the Elder Gods were ''also'' once humanoids. Whether there ever existed any god ''not'' of human origin remains an open question.

* In Creator/IsaacAsimov's ''The Last Question'', humanity builds a supercomputer of unparalled processing power and keeps upgrading it over millions of years, asking the eponymous question ("How can the net amount of entropy of the universe be massively decreased?", that is, violate basic laws of physics, god territory) from time to time. The computer cannot answer it until the entire universe except itself has ceased to exist via heat death and then, in a TwistEnding, [[spoiler:it discovers that it is the Creator/God and restarts the universe]].

The answer is always 'There is as yet insufficient data for a meaningful answer." This remains the answer even as the computer cannot grows exponentially more powerful as the story progresses through the gradual death of the universe, and even when the Universe is completely dead and the computer was the only thing left in existence (it's hardware had transcended matter and energy and been consigned to Hyperspace long before that point).[[spoiler:But then the computer realizes the answer it until to the entire universe except itself has ceased to exist via heat death question, and then, in a TwistEnding, [[spoiler:it discovers that it is the Creator/God story ends with "And [the computer said] 'Let there be LIGHT!' and restarts the universe]].there was light."]].

* In the TvShow/{{Doctor Who}} fanfic ''Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf,'' Rose turns ''herself'' into one through what basically amounts to self-gene therapy (daily sessions of repeated exposure to the Time Vortex until her mind and body can handle it) over the five months she's stuck, totally alone, on a spaceship, with nothing but the broken-down TARDIS.

However, the ones that manage this keep the details of how they did so quiet to prevent too many others following their footsteps. According to what Thistle was taught, Grumble, the god of the minions, was a kobold minion to a wizard who needed a guinea pig for an unknown ritual and realized too late that the ritual bestowed divinity on who it was used on. Grumble made sure he didn't get to try it on himself.
