** Battle pets are a bit more subdued but still provide examples. On the benevolent side are the children of the four Celestials who can be purchased after defeating them multiple times in a tournament. On the negative side are fragments and servants of the Old Gods, whose mere presence can drive a person insane. And they're used for ''Pokemon''.

Additionally, the embodiments of earth, water, and sky from Generation 3 gain their monstrously powerful true forms.
** The Gen VII games, ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', continue the trend with a psychic metal lion said to be the beast that devours the sun[[note]]Solgaleo[[/note]], a ghostly bat that's thought to be the moon's emissary[[note]]Lunala[[/note]], a tiny sentient nebula star child said to be from another world [[spoiler:and is an Ultra Beast that evolves into a cocoon which evolves into the aforementioned lion and bat]][[note]]Cosmog [[spoiler:and Cosmoem]][[/note]], a bizarre living prism[[note]]Necrozma[[/note]], and a 500 year old {{magitek}} RobotGirl[[note]]Magearna[[/note]]. There are also the four Tapu[[note]]Tapu Koko, Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu and Tapu Fini[[/note]], powerful guardian Pokemon worshipped as gods, one for each of the four islands in Alola. We also have a grotesque artificial chimera created to synthesize the strengths of all Pokémon types, intended to battle the Ultra Beasts, and may or may not have been intended to be an artificial version of the above-mentioned creator of the Pokémon universe, as well as its evolved form, which can become any Pokemon type and was in fact discovered by your rival in-game.[[note]]Type:Null and Silvally[[/note]]. Despite this, like Phione above, their official status as ''bona fide'' legendary Pokémon is somewhat debatable. [[spoiler:And then there's Marshadow, a living shadow that's also a martial artist.]]
*** It also introduces the [[EldritchAbomination Ultra Beasts]], which technically aren't Legendary Pokémon but share many of their characteristics (high base stats, no gender, an inability to breed etc). Unlike most legendaries, however, they have [[CripplingOverspecialization a few]] [[JustForPun beastly]] [[CripplingOverspecialization stats with the rest being weak]]. The Ultra Beasts seen are a parasitic jellyfish that may or may not be sentient[[note]]UB-01 Symbiont/Nihilego[[/note]], a humanoid mosquito creature with immense strength and ab-lke sacs[[note]]UB-02 Absorption/Buzzwole[[/note]], a speedy humanoid cockroach creature that resembles a human female[[note]]UB-02 Beauty/Pheromosa[[/note]], a creature resembling a tree made of walking electrical wires[[note]]UB-03 Lighting/Xurkitree[[/note]], a gigantic feminine humanoid bamboo rocket that burns forests just by moving[[note]]UB-04 Blaster/Celesteela[[/note]], a tiny origami-shaped humanoid whose entire body is {{absurdly sharp|Blade}}[[note]]UB-04 Blade/Kartana[[/note]], and a massive creature that devours anything and everything without leaving any waste[[note]]UB-05 Glutton/Guzzlord[[/note]]. (It's worth noting that prior to the introduction of Ultra Beasts there were actually two categories of OlympusMons; Legendary and Mythical Pokemon. Ultra Beasts could be seen as a third.)
** Apparently, you can do this because Poké Balls work as power limiters, allowing you to control them. This is one of the reasons why the BigBad of ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'' wants to control the masters of time and/or space by force, rather than capturing them in Poké Balls.
** Ghetsis from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'' points this out.
--> "You can say whatever you want. A Pokémon, even if it's revered as a deity, is still just a Pokémon."
** Mind you, Arceus [[ValuesDissonance isn't the monotheistic conception of 'God']]. In the most common religions in Japan and Asia, the 'creator' deity that Arceus is based on usually creates the world partly or entirely by accident, and doesn't necessarily control it.
** Hilariously, since most Legendaries are [[GameBreaker incredibly powerful]] and thus banned in official tournaments, and [[CharacterTiers placed in their own tier]] by fans, [[AwesomeButImpractical most of the people controlling these gods either leave them in storage]], or use them to [[MundaneUtility travel around, defeat wild Pokemon, and enter beauty contests]]. However "Uber Tier" battles involving '''only''' Legendaries do exist, too.
** Made even more evident in ''[=HeartGold=]'' and ''[=SoulSilver=]'', when the player is able to have his/her lead Pokemon walk behind the player. A "second-tier" legendary such as Zapdos looks like nothing out of the ordinary, but try putting Ho-Oh in the lead. It's at least twice the size of a normal Pokemon, and you can't even have it out indoors. Yet the [[NonPlayerCharacter NPCs]] [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight take no notice of it]]. And thus Pokémon-amie answers that long lost question - [[CuteMonster Yveltal is adorable when you try to pet it]].
** The same with people who judge your Pokemon's potential, name raters or Pokemon Salon workers, since they're scripted to say the same thing, they have no unique reaction when you bring "God" in for a massage. It's kind of a let down actually...
** Arceus in particular can only be gained through Wi-Fi events or visiting certain shops on certain dates. Originally Arceus was to be catchable in [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Generation IV games]] via an event item but it was DummiedOut and so Arceus became limited through distribution via events only. This becomes somewhat of a FridgeBrilliance because the player technically ''does not'' catch Arceus, but rather has its power being "loaned", so to say.
** Oddly enough, story-wise, while it seems easy enough for the heroes to tame these creatures, villains aren't so good at it. With the exception of Team Rocket and Team Skull, the EvilPlan of every villain team ''always'' involves harnessing the power of the game's mascot Legendary in some way. It almost ''never'' works. Either the Legendary sides with the hero or [[TheDogBitesBack lashes out at everything in anger]], forcing the hero to battle it in order to calm it. The only villains to have ''any'' success taming a mascot Legendary are [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite N]] (if [[AntiVillain you can even call him a villain]]) and [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 Ghetsis]]. [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Lusamine]]]] subverts this trend. [[spoiler: She not only succeeds in using the mascot Legendary's power, but also nearly kills it in the process. However, she has no interest in taming it, and she only used its power in its extremely weak un-evolved form; she's actually defeated by the Legendary once it fully evolves. She ''does'', however, tame an extremely powerful Ultra Beast[[note]]Nihilego[[/note]], but never actually uses it in a normal battle; instead she [[OneWingedAngel fuses with it]] to boost her normal team in the final battle]]. The only team so far to have successfully tamed an actual, powerful Legendary is [[VideoGame/PokemonColosseum Cip]][[VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness her]], who seize control of the Kanto birds[[note]]Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres[[/note]], the Johto beasts[[note]]Entei, Raikou and Suicune[[/note]] and Lugia, [[TheCorruption and converts them into Shadow Pokemon]], retaining complete control over them until they're snagged.

*** It also introduces the [[EldritchAbomination Ultra Beasts]], which technically aren't legendary Legendary Pokémon but share many of their characteristics (high base stats, no gender, an inability to breed etc). Unlike most legendaries, however, they have [[CripplingOverspecialization a few]] [[JustForPun beastly]] [[CripplingOverspecialization stats with the rest being weak]].

Added DiffLines:

* The Materials (summoned beings) in ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign'' are divided into three classes - Regulation-Class (OurMonstersAreWeird), Divine-Class (the gods and other legendary figures of myth) and Unexplored-Class ([[AnthropomorphicPersonification Anthropomorphic Personifications]] of the laws of the universe), with the latter two qualifying for this trope. Notably, even rookie summoners are theoretically capable of summoning the higher classes. Summoning 100 Regulation-Class Materials (within one battle) grants temporary access to the Divine-Class, and summoning 50 Divine-Class grants access to the Unexplored-Class. That said, in practice [[DifficultButAwesome only skilled summoners can pull this off in actual combat]].
