Sometimes, in {{Mon}} games, the game will allow the player to [[CapturedSuperEntity capture and control creatures]] that a [[KidHero preteen hero]] has absolutely no business owning. A kind of DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu moment for TheKidWithTheRemoteControl, {{Mon}} games will allow the player to capture [[CosmicEntity cosmic]], and other supernaturally-powerful beings. Of course, other media occasionally have gods captured by humankind as well.

** ''[[Anime/YuGiOh the original Yu-Gi-Oh]]'' has the playable [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Egyptian God]] [[CardGames Cards]]. There are also a number of arch-demonlike/godlike cards out there. Timaeus & company, [[InstantWinCondition Exodia]], Dark Ruler Ha Des, Dark Creator, the Sacred Beasts, Black Luster Soldier and Chaos Emperor Dragon, Five God Dragon, and the list goes on. Most characters who use these cards do so frivilously; Yugi, being the hero, is likely the only one who at first realizes the potential danger they may pose. (As he says when he wins Sky Dragon Osiris, "I must be ''very'' careful with this...") Heck, even Blue Eyes White Dragon had a god-like backstory before the game's PowerCreep got the better of it. And there's still its fusion forms, the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon]] (which even after the power creep still has the 5th highest attack power in the game, with all of the stronger cards being ludicrously impractical to use) and the even more powerful Dragon Master Knight.

** Yu-gi-oh Zexal introduces Number 100: Numeron Dragon who was before before being reborn as a Number said to create the universe and was used Yuma and Nasch/[[spoiler: Shark]] in their battle against Don Thousand.

Added namespaces.
* ''{{Pokethulhu}}'' is pretty much made of this. * ''MonstersAndOtherChildishThings'' is pretty much based on this concept. Your character (who may be anywhere from 8 to 18 years old depending on the game) has a pet monster that's his or her absolute best friend, and backs the character up in fights against other kids and their monsters. The adult world generally knows about these monsters, but is powerless to stop them - only monsters can really hurt other monsters, and they can tear through people and most earthly materials like tissue paper. Most monsters are some form of EldritchAbomination to boot. * ''MagicTheGathering'' has '''tons''' of creatures that can easily count, most of which are Legendary. One of the most famous examples is [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=370405 Progenitus]], with his famous "protection from everything". The flavor text, "The Soul of the World has returned", pretty much say it all.

A wyvern is defined as having only two legs and a barbed tail. Such is not the case for Salamence.
** There are also what are known by the fandom as "pseudo-legendaries", which are standard Pokemon with power well beyond other standard Pokemon and even some of the legendaries; they consist of a friendly-but-extremely-powerful Eastern dragon [[note]]Dragonite[[/note]], an extraordinarily strong and violence-prone kaiju not unlike Godzilla [[note]]Tyranitar[[/note]], a lumbering mech with a supercomputer for a brain [[note]]Metagross[[/note]], a wyvern [[note]]Salamence[[/note]], a desert-dwelling shark/dragon hybrid [[note]]Garchomp[[/note]], a ceaselessly destructive and ravenously hungry flying hydra that is the Ghidorah to the aforementioned kaiju [[note]]Hydreigon[[/note]], and a slug-dragon hybrid that, while very friendly and good-natured, is still a tour de force in combat [[note]]Goodra[[/note]].

* In ''Micromon'', a Pokemon knockoff, you can capture Vaithe [[spoiler: (once you collect all the chip fragments, that is)]]. He is actually the only godly Micromon that can be legitimately captured, the other godlies have to be hatched from a golden egg.

* VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft occasionally scratches this with Hunters being able to tame creatures far more exotic than your average bear or turtle. Indeed, a recently added Beast Mastery talent lets Hunters tame several types of animals classified as exotic, including two-headed hounds (one variety looking like a raid boss, one being almost exclusively encountered in a raid dungeon, and, most recently, one that ''IS'' a raid boss, and gets to keep it's raid boss level tag) and the infamous Devilsaurs. And then there is the collectors edition bonus, noncombat pet [[VideoGame/{{Diablo}} from another Blizzard game]].

* RuneScape has the summoning skill, where a player can keep a series of more dangerous "familiars" that approach Olympus Mon strength as the player levels up. * Frigisaur and Ignosaur in ''FossilFighters.'' Not only do they belong to an InfinityPlusOneElement, they're the only viviosaurs stated to be imbued with ''actual'' magic, instead of the merely [[FunctionalMagic functional]] variety.

* In the Undead Nightmare expansion pack for ''RedDeadRedemption,'' it is possible for John Marston to tame all four of the Horses of the Apocalypse (Death, War, Pestilence, and Famine). All are incredibly fast and have infinite stamina, and Death causes any zombies it touches while sprinting to have their heads explode.

* By maxing out your Social Links in the ''{{Persona}}'' series, you're given the ability to fuse and create the "ultimate forms" of that Link's [[TarotMotifs Arcana]]. For example, by meeting the right conditions in ''[[UpdatedReRelease Persona 4 Golden]]'', you can create the end game [[spoiler:Izanagi-no-Okami]]. Fittingly, one of questions given at school in Persona 4 has "Olympus Mons" as its answer.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', the Necrons shattered their former C'tan masters after the latter were weakened from infighting. The Necrons can unleash these shards on the battlefield. However, the larger shards are too powerful and volatile to be used this way and are simply imprisoned in the tesseract labyrinths. The Necrons are also very careful to prevent the shards from merging together since this will lead to the rebirth of a very pissed off star-god.
