* Caesar in ''Film/RiseOfThePlanetOfTheApes'' and its sequels. He is the "saviour" of the Apes, conceived from a miraculous birth (the only ape born intelligent rather than artificial brain modification) gives all Apekind the gift of Intelligence (ALZ-113) and leads them to an exodus away from the Human oppressors to the "Promised Land" of the forests where they can live in peace. Everyone, even Koba, looked up to him as a sort of GodEmperor but despite all this he retained an overwhelming sense of compassion, understanding, and tolerance to all sapient life -- human and ape alike. He follows a strict self-imposed morality of ApeShallNotKillApe, seeking to avoid war whenever is possible, though if you cause him trouble, he definitely knows how to kick your ass. Of course, no Ape version of Christ can be complete without a catastrophic betrayal caused by his most trusted "brother": [[spoiler:Koba, who "killed" him, dismantled all of Caesar's work and led the Apes to immoral brutality and persecution of both humans and Caesar's remaining apostles. Caesar even metaphorically "rose from the dead" when Malcolm found him, brought him back to Heaven (Will Rodman's house), and returned to Apekind injured but stronger, ending in the apes "repenting" and [[DisneyVillainDeath Koba's damnation into Hell]].]] His personal symbol, the sequin-like window of Rodman's house even became the universal symbol of Ape liberation ala the Chi-Rho of early Christians.

* Anna in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''. [[spoiler:She sacrifices herself and saves her sister, then comes back to life]]--the parallels are detailed [[http://www.naclhv.com/2014/05/the-gospel-according-to-disneys-frozen.html here]].
* Hiccup Horrendous Haddock [=III=] from ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' possesses these traits in allegory. He possesses a higher knowledge that could enlighten those around him (dragon-training), is [[CassandraTruth considered a criminal and punished in his efforts to educate others]] (disowned by his father), [[CrucifiedHeroShot sacrificing himself]] to [[TooDumbToLive save others from their own ignorance]] (nearly dying from his and Toothless' battle with the Red Death, which he tried to warn his father about), "dying" and then "[[BackFromTheDead resurrection]]" (waking from a coma) with [[GoodScarsEvilScars signs of his sacrifice apparent on his body]] (his prosthetic leg) and not only "saves" his people but [[DawnOfAnEra creates a new dawn for mankind]] (one of peace between the Hooligan Tribe and dragons) that is violently opposed or taken advantage of by those who disagree (The Outcasts and the Berserkers). [[{{Expy}} Sound familiar?]]

* Steven from ‘’WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse’’ bares many of the criteria for this trope. He is the son of a human (Greg) and a transcendent otherworldly being (Rose Quartz) who comes into his own and learn how to control his otherworldly power, including the power to create food (grow plant life), heal the injured (healing spit) and ultimately revive the virtuous ([[spoiler:brings Lars back to life]]). He befriends and converts followers of his celestial parent’s doctrines (Peridot and Lapis Lazuli) and is willing to sacrifice himself to his people’s enemy (the Diamonds) and save his world in the process. This is especially telling in the episode “[[Recap/StevenUniverseS4E9ThreeGemsAndABaby Three Gems and a Baby]]”, where three ancient beings (Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl) come bearing gifts for Steven and his weathered human parent (Greg) in a place that is not their own (Vidalia’s house) set in December.

* Gulcasa from the VideoGame/DeptHeaven series' [[YggdraUnion episode II]][[YggdraUnison -related]] [[VideoGame/BlazeUnion games]]. Miracle birth? Check. Miracle worker and savior? Uh-huh. Twelve disciples? Yep, and one of them even backstabs him. Suffers in the process of saving people, and eventually attempts a HeroicSacrifice? Check and check. The only discrepancy is in the fact that [[spoiler:if he actually completes his HeroicSacrifice, he'll cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, so you have to kill him before he can]].

* Rand al'Thor ([[IHaveManyNames AKA "The Dragon Reborn", the "Car'a'carn", the "Coramoor", "He Who Comes With the Dawn"...]]) from Robert Jordan's ''WheelOfTime'', a ChosenOne in a never-ending reincarnation cycle. Prophecy states that his blood will be spilled to free mankind from the Dark One, most people think that means Rand must die, including himself. [[spoiler:He does, but he comes back in another body due to {{Synchronization}} with [[TheDragon the Nae'blis]] (he's actually that body's third inhabitant)]]. Since prophecy also states that he will "break" the world, he is not always popular. He spends much of the series lamenting his status as the ChosenOne, but ends up an AllLovingHero by the end.
