** Shinnok qualifies, since he is a fallen Elder God who was stripped of his role as one when he attempted to conquer Earthrealm. Instead, he was banished to the Netherrealm, where he overthrew its ruler Lucifer, installed himself as the new overlord, and reshaped it to his whims.

* Collective example in post-apocalyptic ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'', where the rulers of fanatical and theocratic neo-pagan [[PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny Cascadia]] eventually declare ''themselves'' the incarnations of the goddess they worship, whereupon their rule becomes even more totalitarian.

* VideoGame/Stellaris a ruler of a Spiritualist Imperial Government has two flavors of this: God-Emperor(ess) which require Authoritarian ethos and the Imperial Cult civic, and Celestial-Emperor(ess) which requires pacifism and xenophobia and the Inward Perfection Civic. Flavor states that the former is actually divine, while the later is descended from divinity.

** Eric Peterson, a prominent Catholic theologian, pointed out that some early Christian writers referred to the Christ as the Emperor and to His reign as the ''Imperium''. Jesus is also known as the King of Kings through to today, and this was the grounding principle in the divine right of kings--you may rule over your country, but God rules over ''you''.

** Tiber Septim, the [[FounderOfTheKingdom founder of the Third Cyrodiilic Empire]], achieved [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence apotheosis]] after his death and is worshiped as [[DeityOfHumanOrigin Talos]], one of the [[SaintlyChurch Nine Divines]]. He has an especially strong following in the [[BadassArmy Imperial Legion]]. Exactly ''how'' he accomplished this is hotly debated, with the most prominent theories involving MergerOfSouls and BecomingTheMask scenarios. By ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', worship of Talos has been banned thanks to a humiliating treaty forced on the Empire by the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName fascistic [[AntiHumanAlliance Aldmeri Dominion]].

** Tiber Septim, the first Emperor of the Third Era, achieved apotheosis and is worshiped by Imperial citizens as Talos, one of the Nine Divines. He has an especially strong following in the Legion.
*** While Talos, as the Ninth Divine, is the most prominent of the post-death apotheosized Men, at least two other rulers got the same: Cuhlecain, Septim's predecessor (Tiber was his general, and took over and continued the work when Cuhlecain was assassinated) with 'the Cult of Emperor Zero' and Reman Cyrodiil, founder of the Second Empire (also known as the Worldly God and the Light of Man).
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' worship of Talos has been banned thanks to a humiliating treaty forced on the Empire by the fascistic [[CantArgueWithElves Aldmeri]] [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Dominion]]. One [[UnreliableNarrator in-universe book]] speculates that he was originally three separate men, one a BodyDouble of the others, who upon becoming one at the end of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', Talos [[RealityWarper rewrote the past]] to become a single living demigod in the past.
