** This can also be interpreted as God saying that as He's the only one, he doesn't need a specific name. If there was only one tree in the entire universe, we'd just call it "the tree", not a fig tree or a birch tree or anything of the sort. [[note]]This is pretty much the reason why in English His name is generally just considered to be "God" and any other deity is termed "a god." The capitalization is important. Most of the other names there are for Him are either descriptors, poetic or both. This is a rather inconvenient bit of shorthand cultural baggage basically built into English for those people who aren't Christian. If you call someone or something "God" without a qualifier, most people will jump to a vaguely Christian conclusion.[[/note]]

* Too many characters to count among Marvel Comics [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} X-titles]] and mutant spin-offs. Whether hero or villain, whether their ability has inconvenient side or not, whether angsty over it or taking it in stride, before, during or after an about-face (or about-heel) and back, almost every one has an IAmWhatIAm moment at some time.

Often a character will have an aspect of himself of which he's ashamed (or that society insists he should be). It might have something to do with his heritage, such as being [[HeroicBastard illegitimately born]], {{half|HumanHybrid}}-[[OurDemonsAreDifferent demon]] or [[InTheBlood some other inheritance considered unfortunate by society]]. It might have something to do with [[AcceptableLifestyleTargets his lifestyle]]--he's gay, or geeky, or [[BreadEggsMilkSquick he collects belly button lint]]. Maybe he was forced into an EmergencyTransformation which he can't undo, and he's [[StagesOfMonsterGrief been bemoaning]] "WhatHaveIBecome" Or maybe it's an obstacle he faces, like being handicapped, dyslexic or [[TheMcCoy incapable of thinking rationally]]. Could even be a matter [[LoveTropes of love]]. Whatever the issue is, expect the character at some point to receive an epiphany that leads to him embracing whatever makes him different.

* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', [[VillainProtagonist Taylor]], after [[spoiler:failing to prevent the end of the world]], admits to herself that she is a hypocrite, selfish, and occasionally short-sighted in spite of her attempts to be better, coming to terms with these parts of herself.
-->''Iím just a little bit of a monster.''
