-->Downplayed in ''Fanfic/{{Domovoi}}'', as the Jaegers do refer to Caitlin Lightcap as a deity of sorts for creating the Jaeger project, but mostly in the form of swearwords ("Lightcap-dammit" being one example). Dr. Lightcap is not amused.

* ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'': Ultra Magnus is well regarded and feared by both sides in the war. When dealing with a Galactic Counsel detachment, who are known for their hatred of Cybertronians, the captain is honored to meet Magnus and it's revealed that most of the command structure respects his rigid adherence to the law both in letter and spirit. [[spoiler:With the Reveal that Magnus is a LegacyCharacter who's original died long ago, the current Magnus, Minimus Ambus, reveals that he thought of Ultra Magnus as this, the fair and just lawman that he always aspired to be.]]

* Said by Roy in the movie ''Film/{{Wolf}}'', when Will tells him of a ballsy business stunt he is going to pull.
* When Neo gives a hacking disk to a client in ''Film/TheMatrix'', the client says "You're my savior, my own personal Jesus Christ." This is a {{downplayed|Trope}} variation, as he seems to be just being nice instead of thinking Neo was amazing. Also a very subtle form of {{Foreshadowing}}, as that's [[MessianicArchetype what Neo ends up becoming]].

* A non-humorous example occurs in ''Literature/TaiPan'', when one character tells Dirk Struan that [[BlasphemousPraise he is God to her]]. He doesn't actually like hearing this, as he is a devout Christian, has been trying to have a mentor-relationship with the woman in question, and probably recognises such a declaration as the result of her slavish admiration and unhealthy obsession with him.

-->'''David''' ''(first person narration)'': It was bizarre to see them as people. A part of me was actually disappointed. My gods were regular humans who squabbled, laughed, got on one another's nerves, and - in Abraham's case - snored when they slept. Loudly.
