** ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' has two sets: the Prophets of Bajor and the Founders of the Dominion. The Founders are always shown to be false gods and rather uncaring masters (beyond genetically engineering the races they created, doing a somewhat half-assed job of that). The Prophets are never quite so clear cut since they never really claim anything they don't back up and are at least [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien Sufficiently Advanced]] enough that it makes little difference in practice.

* ''Film/{{Thor}}'' tends in this direction. While the Asgardians in the comic book are {{Physical God}}s, in the movie they avoid that designation--one talks about humans "worshiping us as gods", but doesn't claim to actually be one. (A human character specifically invokes [[MagicFromTechnology Sufficiently Advanced Technology]].)

** ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' goes back to the comic book roots by having both Thor and Hela refer to themselves as gods/goddesses, as well as being referred to as such by others. While Thor certainly isn't the kind of deity to insist on people worshiping him, Hela definitely is.

* In the ''[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'' episode "The Balance", Wonder Woman and Hawkgirl face off against demons while searching for Felix Faust. The demons notice that Hawkgirl has wings and back off. Hawkgirl [[LargeHam milks this development for all it's worth]]:

-->'''Hawkgirl''': That's right! I'm an angel! You can mess with me if you want to but I don't think you want to mess with the boss! ''(Hawkgirl points upward, the demons disperse and Hawkgirl rejoins Wonder Woman)'' If we're lucky they'll all be that dumb.

* In Creator/AndreNorton's ''[[Literature/{{Warlock}} Forerunner Foray]]'', Turan and Vintha, actually reanimated by the minds of future espers, claim to be not gods but directly and miraculously sent back from death by the god Vut. As they are actually searching for an alien artifact, there are some weak spots in their story. Turan's widow Zuha, who hated him, claims it's all {{necromanc|er}}y.

** Played straight with considerably more success in the sequel novel ''The Ringworld Engineers''. This time, they wisely keep the "god" off camera--Chmeee, the ferocious carnivorous eight-foot-tall Kzin, presents himself as the god's servant, reacting with obvious awe and fear to TheVoice from their transport ship. Almost falls through when the leader of the giants claims that [[BoldlyComing Rishathra]] is a requirement for any agreement (even an agreement with a god). Since Chmeee is a [[CatFolk Cat Person]], he can't have sex with a [[HumanAliens hominid]]. So Louis comes up with an alternative. He "creates" a mute human servant for himself calling him Wu (of course, it's just Louis himself staying mute so as to not give away his voice), who ends up having Rishathra with one of the leader's wives to seal the deal.

** In the Season 10 episode "Harvest", a village of murderous religious fanatics have this reaction when a depowered Clark Kent survives being stabbed and set on fire (his powers came back, allowing him to heal).

** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E5TheHornsOfNimon "The Horns of Nimon"]], the Nimon basically use this as their entire plan of conquest; one of them shows up at a planet, claiming to be the last survivor of an advanced race and offering advanced technology if the locals will give them 'tribute' in the form of sacrifices, but in reality this is all part of a plan to break this planet down into its own raw resources so that the species can continue their "Great Journey of Life".

** Issue #4 of Age of Heroes shows that when he was frozen and discovered by native people, Captain America was worshipped as a god of cold and sea because coinidentally they started catching more fish. Namor was interpreted as his angel. In modern day some of the older generation still keep faith while the generation after largely rejects him.
