* The Guardian of Earth from ''Manga/DragonBall Z'' is an old Namekian who calls himself Kami, literally meaning "god" (as he has long forgotten his real name), who took over from the previous Guardian. After Goku defeats Piccolo Jr., the reincarnation of Kami's evil half, Kami offers the job of Guardian to Goku, though as he just got engaged to Chi-Chi, he declines. Much, much later, in ''Battle of Gods'', after the battle with Beerus the God of Destruction, his attendant Whis offers to make Goku Beerus's successor (as even Beerus isn't immortal and will die someday). Again, Goku turns it down (though he is still a god now, having become the Super Saiyan God).

* The position of God is more akin to a job in ''Manga/MiraiNikki''. The plot happens because the current God (Deus ex Machina) wishes to choose a successor [[spoiler:because he is dying]]. Anyone who inherits the position will also gain the vast powers that Deus commands.
