* Averted in ''Series/{{Lucifer}}''. In "God Johnson", Linda is naturally flustered when informed that she's just met God, and says that she should have bowed or something. She starts to drop to her knees the next time they meet, but (presumably because God is a good guy) he says that a handshake will do fine.

** Years earlier, in the First Doctor episode "Assassin in Peking", the First Doctor is ordered to kowtow before Kublai Khan. He refuses, but not out of pride -- he's an old man and very stiff from having just walked most of the way across China. Fortunately, the great Khan, who is also quite elderly, finds the scene amusing.
** In "Planet of the Spiders", the Great One uses her telepathic powers to torture the Third Doctor into grovelling before her.
** "KNEEL! KNEEL BEFORE THE MIGHT OF SUTEKH!"
** Borusa uses the mind-power enhancing Coronet of Rassilon to force the Fifth Doctor to kneel before him in "The Five Doctors".
** Five also is forced to his knees in ''Four to Doomsday'' and ''The Visitation''. Though this was solely for the purpose of getting his head chopped off.

* ''Videogame/SaltAndSanctuary'': The Scarecrow you often encounter talks about even the most powerful beings out there kneel to him, and that you will, one day, join them. Even if you persist, one day you will break, sink into despair, and finally kneel before it. [[spoiler:And in the fight with the Nameless God himself, whose voice was in that same Scarecrow, he at least forces the physical gesture out of you by forcing you to take fall damage to access his arena, which makes you kneel to the ground briefly.]]
