* According to [[Literature/TheBible the Book of Revelation]], during the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt "End Times"]], there will be many people who will claim to be Jesus on his Second Coming. On top of that, the AntiChrist will also claim to be a god. These people will all be false deities of one kind or another.

* ''Literature/TheBible'':
** In the Book of Acts, Paul and Barnabas were mistaken for avatars of Zeus and Hermes when performing some miracles in a Greek city. It was a [[UnwantedFalseFaith little difficult for the two]] to convince the people that this was not the case... and it didn't end well when some others capitalized on the misunderstanding to have Paul and Barnabas punished for their "deception".

* Asimov also used this trope in "Homo Sol", in which advanced and benevolent aliens, upon discovering that human beings are uniquely susceptible to irrationality and would be able to destroy them within a few centuries if left alone, elect to make FirstContact while proclaiming themselves to be the gods of Myth/ClassicalMythology, cause the inevitable fanatics to give them power, and teach the human race to leave its barbarous ways behind. Surprisingly, it doesn't backfire at all. Ironically, Asimov strongly opposed religious fanaticism and intolerance in RealLife.

*When George visits a temple in Ta'akan in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'' and is struck by how pedestrian and businesslike it seems—and after he finds out that the people associated with the temple have no idea what the word “worship” means—he speculates that the Dalns gods are actually just outworlders who set themselves up as gods. However, he's pretty shook when he actually meets one of the gods, and he doesn't think about this issue thereafter.
**It must be noted that some of the things that the Fans say about the Dalns gods do bring their divinity into question—notably the fact that they won the planet C'hou in the courtroom way back when, and are now wanting to get rid of it but legally unable to without certain conditions being met. However, it's also pretty clear that whoever they are, they do (or did) have quite a bit of power.
