* GaiaOnline's deicide storyline indicates that the Gambino family has divine ancestry, and so is under attack by the same forces out to murder the rest of Gaia's sprawling pantheon. [[spoiler: This news came a little late for [[SacrificialLion Johnny]].]]

* Perhaps the most famous examples in cinema are found in ''StarWars''. Anakin Skywalker is half-divine, being the child of a human mother and the Force itself (which, yes, [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory does make Anakin's a virgin birth]]). As a result, his children by Padme Amidala, Leia Organa [[note]] who is ''not'' biologically an Organa, despite continuing to go by her foster father's surname [[/note]] and Luke Skywalker, are one-quarter divine; and ''their'' children (Jacen, Jaina, and Anakin Solo in the ExpandedUniverse, Ben Solo in ''TheForceAwakens''; and Ben Skywalker in the Expanded Universe, Rey(?) in ''The Force Awakens'') by Mara Jade (EU only) and Han Solo, respectively, are one-eighth divine.

Related to HalfHumanHybrid. After all, these characters ''are'' half-human, half god.

god - but since the gods are [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith usually thought of as looking completely human]], the "different species" issue doesn't tend to come up.

* Appears in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' as a character's "divinity" rank. Seems to be pointless, until [[spoiler:[[Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh Gilgamesh]]]] unveils [[spoiler: [[ChainPain Enkidu]],]] which is a VariableLengthChain that grows stronger based on the divinity rank of the person it captures. He uses this to kill a number of [[TheWorfEffect should-have-been-challenging-opponents]]. Characters with Divine Parentage include (in order of original divinty rank): [[spoiler: [[Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh Gilgamesh]],]] a 2/3 deity; [[Myth/GreekMythology Herclues]], [[Myth/CelticMythology Cú Chulainn]], Caster [[spoiler: Theatre/{{Medea}}]] and AlexanderTheGreat from ''Literature/FateZero'' are all demigods; and lastly Rider [[spoiler: [[Myth/GreekMythology Medusa]]]]. [[spoiler: All but Medusa and Medea are trapped by Enkidu just before dying in at least one route.]]
