* Several individuals and factions within ''VideoGame/TheSecretWorld'' want to seize control of [[EldritchAbomination the Dreamers]]; of course, given that the consequences of just '''one''' of the Sleeping Ones awakening are truly apocalyptic in proportion, [[EvilIsNotAToy this almost never works]].
** The [[MegaCorp Orochi Group]] has its Prometheus Initiative set up for this very reason: [[spoiler: technically, they only want to control the Gaia Engines that keep the Dreamers imprisoned, believing that they can use them as a source of limitless energy]].
** [[spoiler: Lilith]] wants the Dreamers enslaved to her will in order to create a new and better world. Every single one of her attempts has ended in dismal failure, either due to someone stepping in at the last minute - or the whole mess blowing up in her face. [[spoiler: In one case, it ended so badly that one of the Dreamers waking up just long enough to '''end the world.''']]
** The Nephilim want to harness the Dreamers as well, though they at least have the advantage of having apparently [[spoiler: created the Gaia Engines in the first place.]]
** [[spoiler: [[FallenAngel Samael]] ]] wanted to do this, but he lost his nerve after seeing [[spoiler: Lilith]] screw the pooch.
** Later on, it's revealed that a successful variation of this has occurred: [[spoiler: the Gaia Engines not only keep the Dreamers imprisoned, but they are also capable of harnessing their powers for short periods of time - just long enough to save the world from apocalyptic disasters. Unfortunately, that particular function's beginning to break down after four consecutive resets, [[OutOfContinues and it might not work anymore]].]]

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', this has happened to some of the series' [[OurGodsAreDifferent divine beings]], the Aedra and the Daedra, at different times in history. To note:
** The Aedra ("our ancestors" in [[ClassicalTongue Old Aldmeris]]) were the et'Ada ("original spirits") who sacrificed a significant portion of their divine power during the [[CreationMyth creation of Mundus]], the mortal plane. Worshiped throughout much of Tamriel as the [[SaintlyChurch Eight (later Nine) Divines]], they have been "tampered with", so to speak, by mortals. The most significant of these events are known as "Dragon Breaks", where something (usually mortals using some sort of divine implements) tampers with Akatosh, the [[DragonsAreDivine draconic]] God of Time, leading to a TimeCrash with a dose of RealityBreakingParadox. The most significant Dragon Break is known as the "Middle Dawn", during which, for a period of 1008 years[[note]]measured using the phases of Nirn's [[WeirdMoon two moons]], which are said to be the decaying "flesh divinity" of the [[GodIsDead "dead" creator god]] and were thus unaffacted[[/note]] in the 1st Era, [[RealityIsOutToLunch Reality Was Out To Lunch]]. Bizarre and impossible events occurred during this time; people gave birth to their own parents, some sources mention wars and major events which never happened according to other sources, the sun changed color depending on the witness, and the gods either walked among the mortals or they didn't. Another occurred at the conclusion of the events of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'' following the activation of the [[RealityWarper Reality Warping]] HumongousMecha LostSuperweapon known as the Numidium. Akatosh fixed this one by having the timelines (and thus, ''Daggerfall'''s [[MergingTheBranches mutually exclusive]] MultipleEndings) recombine violently, with all of the events having occurred at once, but [[BroadStrokes none to the same extent they would have individually]].
** This can also occur to the Daedric ("not our ancestors") Princes, who are the et'Ada who did not make any sacrifices during the creation of Mundus and thus, maintain their full divine power. However, due to their greater power, it usually takes another divine entity (like another Daedric Prince) to cause this. To note:
*** The Daedric Prince Malacath came into being when the Daedric Prince Boethiah "ate" the Aedric spirit Trinimac, twisted Trinimac in his belly, and then "excreted" him as Malacath.
*** The Daedric Prince Jyggalag was feared by the other Princes for his growing power, so they came together and trapped him in the form of Sheogorath, the Daedric Prince of [[MadGod Madness]]. Sheogorath would later device a means to pass the mantle of Sheogorath onto the mortal [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Champion Of Cyrodiil]], freeing Jyggalag once again.
*** Alduin the World Eater, the draconic BeastOfTheApocalypse and "first born" of Akatosh, is tasked with "eating" the world at the end of every kalpa, or cycle of time, so that it can be remade. When he discovered that a lowly and friendly "demon" was saving pieces of the old worlds, he cursed that demon to become an OmnicidalManiac hell bent on destroying all that he had saved from the old worlds (which, Alduin presumes, [[ImpossibleTask he will never be able to actually accomplish]], adding to his fury). That demon's name? Mehrunes Dagon, now the Daedric Prince of Destruction.
