** The [=HoonDing=], the Yokudan/Redguard spirit of perseverance and "Make Way God", manifests itself using mortal avatars. According to some interpretations, these avatars aren't necessarily the [=HoonDing=] itself, but the [=HoonDing=] taking over and/or working through the avatar. To note:
*** Frandar Hunding was one form. Hunding led an army of "[[MasterSwordsman sword singers]]" to victory over Emperor Hira of Yokuda. He later led the Redguard people to Hammerfell and "cleansed" it of hostile threats in order to make it safe for Redguard habitation.
*** Diagna, "God of the Sideways Blade," was another. Diagna defeated the Left Handed Elves of Yokuda and later, defeated the Orcs of Orsinium at the height of its ancient power.
*** Cyrus the Restless, hero of the ''The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard'' spin-off game, was the most recent. Through the events of that game, Cyrus forced the [[TheEmpire Septim Empire]] into a treaty with better terms for Hammerfell while freeing the island of Stros M'Kai from its corrupt Imperial governor and the threat of a Sload necromancer.

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'''s [[SaintlyChurch Imperial Cult]] questline, several of the Divines appear as unassuming victims. You can help them escape their captors/dangerous situations by giving the a [[WarpWhistle Divine Intervention scroll]], after which they will reward you with enchanted artifacts. At the very end of the main quest, Talos will appear as an old Imperial soldier named Wulf within Ghostgate. He'll wish [[PlayerCharacter the Nerevarine]] luck and give them his lucky coin, which imbues a power that dramatically increases the LuckStat for a short time.

They cut his heart from his body and cast it down into the world he helped to create, where his spirit is forced to wander. At a few points in history, his spirit manifested in a physical form, known as "[[EternalHero Shezarrines]]". They most often appear in times of great peril for [[HumansAreSpecial mankind]], aiding mankind by, most often, killing lots and lots of [[OurElvesAreBetter Mer (Elves)]].

* While not exactly a human (especially if you go by his toy design, which doesn't have organic features) Mata Nui from ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' went through such a phase, after having been robbed of his own body, that of a HumongousMecha PhysicalGod, and forging a new, much smaller ( this time, a mostly organic) form for himself from sand. He lives with "normal" people for a while, but later swaps his body for another giant robot to beat the BigBad. May count as a light subversion, as the people he met didn't regard him as a god, as they never even knew him, and those to whom he ''was'' a god didn't get to see him in this form.

Also, he himself [[AGodIAmNot never saw himself as a god, even at the height of his power, and merely referred to himself as a "protector"]].

to:

* In ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'', a lot of Primal Beasts look humanoid on some level, but some of them are seen outright taking a human form and walking among the mortals. Examples include Noa, Grand Order/Zooey, Lucifer/Lucio, [[spoiler:Oneiros/Phoebe and Rose Queen/Rosetta]]. Noa is in fact never seen in any other form, probably because where most Primal Beasts govern concepts or natural phenomena, he is the "god" of shipwrights, a distinctly human activity.

* Arawn in ''TearsToTiara'' is called the Great Demon God and actually hasn't really been depowered since before being killed a thousand years before. The actual problem is that he currently possesses a much more humanlike shell and that actually using that power properly will destroy his nerves and muscles, so he doesn't. [[spoiler:Except he has been the entire time, leaving him incredibly worn out and ragged by the end. Also, even before when fighting with Pwyll he was already a depowered deity-level figure from being one of the Twelve Angels, and taking that form again causes him immense damage.]]
