** Chief Unalaq from the SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' also takes a stab at this by proclaiming himself the Dark Avatar. He's able to back up his claim better than Ozai, due to fusing with an EldritchAbomination.

* 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.

* The backstory of ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}'' features the God-Emperors of the Holy Ryuvian Empire. They weren’t actual gods, but since they wielded technology so advanced that they could do anything short of time travel, their subjects worshipped them as gods regardless. In the AlternateUniverse of ''Sunrider Academy'', the God-Emperor is still worshipped even though the empire has long-since collapsed and the protagonist can go to a Shinto-esque Ryuvian Shrine to pray for good luck.

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has a downplayed example: The Dark Elves worship the Tribunal, a trio of living, flesh and blood gods (actually, they are just elves who received many supernatural powers via an ArtifactOfDoom). In the modern day they exert great influence, but aren't officially the government and their powers have waned greatly; rather, there's a separate King of Morrowind, who reports to the Emperor. But before Dagoth Ur's return and the Imperial conquest of Morrowind, they really did fit this trope.

** Among the [[{{Wutai}} Akaviri]] race of the Ka Po' Tun "tiger folk," their leader, Tosh Raka, has become one. He has supposedly achieved the race's goal of ''[[ScaledUp becoming dragons]]'', being the largest dragon in the world with orange and black colored scales. (Other sources claim that this story is [[MetaphoricallyTrue metaphorical]] at best.)

* The Amonkhet block of ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' focuses on a plane where the gods are subordinate to the God-Pharaoh, whose prophecied return is not too far off. Said God-Pharaoh is Nicol Bolas, an extremely ancient and powerful planeswalker, mind-shattering dragon, and [[CompleteMonster utter bastard]] [[TheUnfettered who will do anything to recover his much more excessive pre-Mending power level]].

** Rassilon could be considered this, being not the Lord President of the Time Lords, but part of the Time Lord triumvirate who created Time Lord society and culture. Many artifacts are named after him, and he is believed to have gained immortality by the time the classic series has rolled around. By the time of the Last Great Time War, he is Lord President, [[StealthPun hell bent]] on remaining an all-powerful figure, and he definitely has the means to achieve that.

* The ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'' fanfic ''Fanfic/{{Ripples}}'' and its sequel ''Stirred'' deconstruct how this trope is at play on Meridian. The royal line of Escannor is believed by many to be divine, however everyone knows that a tyrant or a monster could easily hold the throne if they played their cards right. Caleb believes outright that Phobos is divine in nature, but this has nothing to do with his opinion of Phobos' character, only how dangerous he is.
