Compare with EmperorScientist and SorcerousOverlord, which is how a good many of them get their start; and TheEmperor, to whom the God-Emperor trope may apply also. Compare [[HighPriest Priest King]], when the ruler is head of both Church and State, but not worshiped themselves. If you're looking for an emperor/king/leader of the gods themselves, see [[TopGod King of the Gods]].

* In ''Literature/Succession'', the Risen Emperor and his sister are worshipped as gods. Given that they're immortal, and have the ability to confer immortality upon others, this is somewhat understandable. The Emperor encourages this worship, but does not demand it.

** The Seven have ruled the world for a thousand years, preparing for the Breach to open and the infernals to spew forth. Unfortunately, a thousand years is a long time to wait, even for immortals, and by the time the attack comes, [[WeHaveBecomeComplacent they have allowed the defenses to lapse]].
** The Uncivil is worshiped by her half-alive cultists, who repair her cloak of corpses in exchange for grafts and enhancements.

** Then there's Zoss, the Conquering King, also known as the Second King of Creation, who is an even better example of this trope and according to WordOfGod he could "shit on" all of the Demiurges put together. He rediscovered the [[PortalCrossroadWorld Red City]] [[EldritchLocation of Throne]] after the death of [[FantasyPantheon the Multiplicity]], at this point only inhabited by [[CelestialParagonsAndArchangels the Prime Angels,]] mountain-sized colossuses wielding near-godlike powers. [[BadAss He slaughtered them all with his own two hands,]] then declared Throne to be his by right of conquest. After opening the [[PortalNetwork Magus Gates,]] thus allowing inhabitants of all universes into Throne he founded an empire ruled by "peaceful philosopher god-kings", with himself on top, which rediscovered and conquered all [[ArcNumber 777 777]] universes, bringing them under his rule. He has vanished since, letting his empire break into seven parts in the hands of the Demiurges, but they suspect he's still alive. If so, he's easily the most powerful character still alive in the comic by a ridiculous margin. (The second most powerful, [[spoiler:Metatron 1, a freaking ''archangel'']], was crippled and nearly killed by him.)
