*** As shown in the page quote, the last priest on Earth called it (after tearing down his badly argued HollywoodAtheist justifications to boot). As did The Emperor's best friend and trusted advisor Malcador. Emps just refused to listen, even when he had to start outlawing cults worshipping him.

* The Autarch Sulepis of the nation of Xis in TadWilliams' Shadowmarch series is regarded as a living god, with absolute control over his vast empire and designs on ruling the world. Also once ordered a man to be tortured to death in his library so he could read and listen to his screams at the same time.

* The Hindu kings of Cambodia would take the title "Devaraja", literally "God-king" and claimed to be incarnates of the Hindu gods. Statues of gods in temples would be carved in the likeness of the reigning monarch. Averted by Hindu monarchs in India, however.

Fixing my own link (derp)
** First we have the founder and [[OrcusOnHisThrone (absent)]] leader of the [[LegionsOfHell Burning Legion]], [[TheDevil Sargeras]]. Originally the greatest warrior of [[ThePrecursors the Titans]], he was appointed to hunt down and imprison all the [[AlwaysChaoticEvil demonic races]] who sought to prey upon the ordered worlds they had created. After killing one too many demons and seeing one too many races corrupted by them, he went mad and [[KnightTemplar decided that universe itself was fundamentally flawed]] and that [[WorldOfSilence it must be destroyed and recreated anew without imperfection]], for which effect he released all the demonic races he had imprisoned and gave them the option to help him destroy the universe [[MortonsFork or be killed]]. Due to the fact that he could probably destroy Azeroth single-handedly, he was {{Put on a Bus}}, by banishing his spirit into the Twisting Nether following his corruption of Medivh, which didn't stop the Legion [[OmnicidalManiac from carrying on his mission]], and his [[TheDragon Dragon]] Kil'jaeden taking command in his name, but never trying to usurp command, simply considering him to be "absent". Though he has godlike powers, he doesn't seem to encourage his minions to worship him; however, mortal groups like the Shadow Council, who seek the favor of the Legion, do so anyway. ** Second, we have the BigBad of the second expansion, the [[Necromancer Lich King]]. Originally a mortal orc shaman, Ner'Zhul, who had a prominent role in allowing the Burning Legion to corrupt the orcish race into TheHorde they were prior to their redemption by Thrall. Once the horde failed to take over Azeroth following their defeat in the second war, he tried to escape the wrath of the [[TheDragon Legion Lord Kil'jaeden]], but was captured by him, [[AndIMustScream had his soul ripped off from his body and trapped in the Frozen Throne]], and sent back to Azeroth, this time to raise an undead army with [[AnimateDead necromantic magic]] and a [[TheVirus zombie plague]], to finish the job the Horde had started. Though he succeeded in destroying the kingdom of Lordaeron, he was GenreSavvy enough to know that Kil'jaeden would [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness eventually dispose of him]], so [[ManipulativeBastard he engineered]] the FaceHeelTurn of the human prince Arthas Menethil, in order "merge" with him and be truly free of Kil'jaeden's control, [[AGodAmI gaining godlike powers]] in the process, [[spoiler:though that may have backfired since it is implied only Arthas is in control following their MentalFusion]]. The second expansion depicts Lich King Arthas as having powers to raise and control the dead, both mindless and sentient, which causes the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Vrykul]] and the [[PettingZooPeople Tuskarr]] to identify him with their respective patron deity of death. It is also [[ReligionOfEvil evident in it's very nature]] that [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Cult of the Damned]], the still living and willing servants of the Lich King, worship him as a God, and expect to be [[LivingForeverIsAwesome blessed with the immortality of undeath]] as a [[ImmortalitySeeker reward for their faith]].

Edited the Warcraft section for clarity, SPG and removing the dubious example of Thrall
** First we have the founder and (not acting) leader of the [[LegionsOfHell Burning Legion]], [[TheDevil Sargeras]]. He originally was the greatest warrior of [[ThePrecursors the titans]], who was appointed by them to hunt down and imprison all the [[AlwaysChaoticEvil demonic races]] who sought to prey upon the ordered worlds they had created. After killing one too many demons and seeing one too many races corrupted by them, he went mad and [[KnightTemplar decided that universe itself to be fundamentally flawed]] and that [[WorldOfSilence it must be destroyed and recreated anew without imperfection]], for which effect he released all the demonic races he had imprisoned and gave them the option to help him destroy the universe or be killed by him, [[MortonsFork guess which one they chose]]. Due to the fact that he could probably destroy Azeroth single-handedly, he was {{Put on a Bus}}, by banishing his spirit into the Twisting Nether following his corruption of Medivh, which didn' stop the legion [[OmnicidalManiac from carrying on his mission]], and his [[TheDragon Dragon]] Kil'Jaeden taking command in his name, but never trying to usurp command, simply considering him to be "absent". Though he has godlike powers, he doesn't seem to encourage his minions to worship him, but mortal groups like the shadow council, who seek the favor of the legion, do so anyway . There's also the widespread belief among the community he will be the final boss of the final expansion of WOW, so how can he not be godlike if his death signals the end of {{the verse}}. ** Second, we have the BigBad of the second expansion, The Lich King, tough he originally was the orc (read: mortal) shaman, Ner'Zhul, who had a prominent role in allowing the Burning Legion to corrupt the orcish race into TheHorde they were prior to their redemption by Thrall. Once the horde failed to take over Azeroth following their defeat in the second war, he tried to escape the wrath of the [[TheDragon Legion Lord Kil'Jaeden]], but was captured by him, [[AndIMustScream had his soul ripped off from his body and trapped in the frozen throne]], and sent back to Azeroth, this time to raise an undead army with [[AnimateDead necromantic magic]] and a [[TheVirus zombie plague]], to finish the job the horde had started. Though he succeeded in destroying the kingdom of Lordaeron, he was GenreSavvy enough to know that Kil'Jaeden will [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness eventually dispose of him]], so [[ManipulativeBastard he engineered]] the FaceHeelTurn of the human prince Arthas Menethil, in order "merge" with him and be truly free of Kil'Jaeden control, [[AGodAmI gaining godlike powers]] in the process, [[spoiler:though that may have backfired since it is implied only Arthas is in control following their MentalFusion]]. Anyway the second expansion, depicts Lich King Arthas, as having powers to raise and control the dead, both mindless and sentient, which causes the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Vrykul]] and the [[PettingZooPeople Tuskarr]] to identify him with their respective patron deity of death. It is also [[ReligionOfEvil evident in it's very nature]], that [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the cult of the damned]], the still living and willing servants of the Lich King worship him as a God, and expect to be [[LivingForeverIsAwesome blessed with the immortality of undeath]] as a [[ImmortalitySeeker reward for their faith]]. ** Thrall himself is a borderline case as he gave up his Warchief Mantle(read: stopped being an emperor), before gaining proper [[PhysicalGod godlike]] [[MessianicArchetype powers]] in the third expansion. [[LoopholeAbuse Technicalities aside]], some orcs (who were at the time not members of the horde, and arguably had no idea how powerful can you become with proper training in WOW) expressed doubts that he could be mortal upon seeing him for the first time, so that would probably count as "worship". ** The fourth expansion, brings us the Last (pandaren) Emperor of Pandaria, Shaohao, who upon learning from his local [[FishPeople Jinyu]] Oracle that [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the sundering]] was coming, decided to search for a way to save Pandaria from it. The method he came up with tough required him to purge himself from his negative emotions, using masks that created {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s of them, and then [[EnemyWithout beating the crap out of them]]. [[spoiler:It is implied that this is what released the [[EldritchAbomination the Sha]] from their imprisonment, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero which would go on to cause problems for his people for millenia to come]], but then again considering [[EarthShatteringKaboom the alternative]], he [[TheExtremistWasRight may have had a point]].]] After purging himself from negative emotions, and becoming a "[[MessianicArchetype being of pure light]]", he returned to the vale of eternal blossoms, to commune with the land, but failed until he realized he needed to save his enemies the [[BeePeople man]][[ProudWarriorRaceGuy tid]] as well if he wanted to save Pandaria, so [[BalanceOfGoodandEvil with that in mind]], he succeeded in "[[MessianicArchetype becoming one with the land]]" and when the Sundering came, Pandaria drifted quietly into the ocean and became enveloped in impenetrable mists, hidden away from the rest of the world, while his mortal body disappeared, leaving only his clothes behind. In modern times, the pandaren don't really worship him, but it is clear that they admire him and consider him to have become more than mortal in his quest to save Pandaria, having achieved some sort of EnlightenmentSuperpowers:

* The monarchs of TheTwelveKingdoms. Ruling a kingdom comes with such perks as immortality and the ability to speak and understand any language. (Or at least Chinese, Japanese and whatever language is spoken in the Twelve Kingdoms) and quite a few very nice palaces. The downside is that if they rule badly the ''kirin'' who chose them to rule in the first place will begin to sicken and die, which means they will die sooner or later as well, along with the onset of extremely violent weather and demon-animal youma running wild throughout the kingdom. If the king doesn't change their ways the only way to avoid this is to step-down from the throne and commit suicide.
