* The Ainur from Franchise/TolkiensLegendarium 'verse (most elaborated on in ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', mentioned in ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'') are a whole ''race'' of these. They're incorporeal spirit beings created by the creator deity before the physical universe, and some entered it. Those can and many choose to freely clothe themselves in physical forms. They greater spirits, or [[CouncilOfAngels Valar]] (Powers) fill the roles of traditional Gods but act more as caretakers or stewards of the World (Arda), with one [[FallenAngel notable exception]]. Among them the most powerful are [[GodOfEvil Morgoth/Melkor]], [[TheHighQueen Varda/Elbereth]]. The lesser spirits, Maiar, are "kin" and "people" to the Valar, and appear more in ''Lord of the Rings'' and include [[BigBad Sauron]], Gandalf, [[TheStarscream Saruman]], and [[DemonLordsAndArchDevils the Balrog of Moria]]. Another good example would be Melian, a Maia, who was able to have a child with an Elf, and who used her powers to defend the kingdom of Doriath. It's worth noting that while Maiar are usually seen as "lesser" spirits, some among them, like Sauron, Melian and Arien, are vastly powerful in their own right, and can contend with the Powers themselves or put them on the defensive.
** Tolkien discussed at length the effects of being incarnated, especially where Morgoth and Sauron were concerned. Generally speaking, being incarnate is creates an advantage in the physical world, but also creates a weakness: when the physical form is damaged or destroyed, the Ainu loses part of their power and can even be killed.

** The Weeping Angels are considered this, as they have [[RealityWarper reality warping]] powers, being able to send people back in time, defy the laws of physics, and turn to stone when looked at making them near indestructible. Father Octavius even says "they are god" when he sees them opening a magnetized door. On the other hand, they are still made up of stone when they're being looked at, and their powers are basically draining energy and using that energy to send people back in time (and feeding off the potential energy of their past). So if they do count as this trope, they're a long way down the spectrum.

* In Max Gladstone's ''Literature/CraftSequence'', the gods are real, and most of them are dead by now. Lich corporate lords killed them.
* ''Franchise/CthulhuMythos'':
** The Great Old Ones are said to be powerful Physical Gods... if they ever escape from their prison. Cthulhu himself, when he is trapped in the ocean depths (his WeaksauceWeakness), can barely use telepathy, and even a normal boat rammed through his head turned his head into a paste. It regenerates, but that is enough to subvert this trope.
** A straighter example would be the [[CosmicEntity Outer Gods]], a collection of all-powerful beings that exist outside of the universe. Only some of them fit this trope straight, specifically the ones that manifest in physical avatars, the most prominent being Yog-Sothoth (his physical form is the ''space-time continuum itself''), and Nyarlathotep (has many, ''many'' forms).
* Steven Erikson's ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' is chock full of these, called Elder Gods and Ascendants. All are implied to have physical forms even if they don't outright appear that way in the novels. At least two of them are humans who took over an attunement that was vacant.
** They are far from omnipotent, though. In ''Literature/ReapersGale'', [[spoiler:Trull Sengar]], a mortal Tiste Edur, manages to hold his own in combat against ancient Ascendant[[spoiler:Silchas Ruin]], at least for a while. Though at that point [[spoiler:Trull]] is also far from mortal, having become the Knight of Shadow in ''Literature/TheBonehunters''.
** The Crippled God himself. Some of the implications of this trope are defied, however; thanks to his crippling and chaining, his physical form is actually very ''weak''. Withal - who, aside from being an incredibly skilled smith, is a vanilla mortal - is able to shove him over and collapse his tent on him at the end of ''Literature/MidnightTides'', and the Crippled God can't do anything about it but flail helplessly and shriek threats.



* The [[Literature/{{Dragaera}} Dragaeran]] gods' main power is to be physically present in many places--learned through training, but also through a deep physical change. This power implies others, including immortality: if a god is killed in one place (by a sentient blade), they're still in other places. Beyond that, the gods have varied powers and forms: Creator/StevenBrust shows a dragon, a storm cloud, a black void, a female humanoid, and others. One more aspect of godhood is you can't control or summon a god. They'll help you if it suits them.\\
\\
More precisely, the Dragaeran word translated in the books into "divinity" really means "to simultaneously live in multiple forms or aspects of reality", as opposed to, say, mortals, who can only live in one physical plane or be in one after- or between-life at once. (Normal death in this verse is simply moving a soul from one place to another, which can't be done if the soul is already at the destination.) It's explicitly stated the ''only'' difference between a "god" and "demon" is that somebody's figured out a theoretical way to bind or coerce the latter, so those classes are more changeable. (It also explains the title of "Verra, the Demon Goddess" - a former slave of the Jenoine.)
* Lots of characters in Creator/JohnCWright's ''Literature/ChroniclesOfChaos''. They describe mortals as "cattle" but they live out TheMasquerade in the human world.
** Also [[Theatre/AMidsummerNightsDream Titania]] and [[Myth/NorseMythology Oberon]] from ''Literature/WarOfTheDreaming.''
* In Creator/JesseHajicek's ''Literature/TheGodEaters'', people become gods through the belief of others, then make a practice of devouring each other to consolidate power.
* Creator/RogerZelazny likes to mix mythology in with his SF, and as a result, has used this a few times:
** In ''Literature/CreaturesOfLightAndDarkness'', some of the gods are ascended humans, some aliens, some are techno-things, and some are just, well, straight up gods. (In his similar novel from the same era, ''Literature/LordOfLight'', they're just pretending.)
** ''Eye of Cat'' features Native American Physical Gods in a futuristic setting.
** And then there's the royal family in ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfAmber''. Or at least Dworkin, [[spoiler: who ''created'' the entire multiverse]].

[[spoiler: Old Father Tree]] was summoned into the world in a time long forgotten to act as the can for a particularly nasty SealedEvilInACan. [[EldritchLocation The Plain of Fear]] is the result of His otherworldly presence, sporting coral reefs on dry land, [[FlyingSeafoodSpecial Wind whales and flying mantas,]] talking stones called Menhir, and "change storms" that temporarily distort reality.



** Hoid, the InexplicablyAwesome [[DimensionalTraveler worldhopper]] who shows up in every Cosmere book, is one, though he never uses his powers offensively. At absolute minimum, he's a full Mistborn, a full Feruchemist (thus making him as powerful as the Lord Ruler), and has reached at least the Second Heightening (and quite likely far more). WordOfGod is that if his head were cut off he'd just grow another one, and he is completely unconcerned with being threatened by a [[SoulCuttingBlade Shardblade]].

** The ''Elohim'' are somewhere between physical gods and powerful [[TheFairFolk fair folk]]; as incarnations of pure [[BackgroundMagicField Earthpower]], they are {{Pure Magic Being}}s and have access to elemental magic vastly dwarfing anything mortals can wield, plus being immortal and having vast knowledge. Unfortunately, they're also [[JerkassGod jerks]]; their BlueAndOrangeMorality is centered on the idea that they are the most important beings in the universe and always know best, and though they don't really ''mean'' harm, they don't take kindly to people trying to deal with problems in ways they don't approve of and have the power to register their objections... decisively.
** The series BigBad, [[GodOfEvil Lord Foul the Despiser]], is a physical god of a rather different breed. Once he was the cosmic opponent of [[{{God}} the Creator]] until he got [[SealedEvilInACan locked inside the Arch of Time]], binding him to a single manifestation and greatly reducing his available powers[[note]]He's around ''Elohim''-tier while bound, but is explicitly stated to far exceed them should he regain his true stature[[/note]]. In other words, he's ''really'' a CosmicBeing, and being a physical god is a major step down for him, one he's less than pleased with. Like the ''Elohim'', he has the power to register this displeasure on a grand scale; unlike them, he [[ThePowerOfHate really does]] [[ForTheEvulz mean harm]].
* In Creator/RobertEHoward's Literature/ConanTheBarbarian story "Literature/ShadowsInTheMoonlight" [[DreamingOfTimesGoneBy Olivia dreams]] that the statues were TakenForGranite at the hands of a Physical God, after they had [[ColdBloodedTorture tortured to death]] his [[HalfHumanHybrid demigod son]].

* In ''Literature/TheGirlFromTheMiraclesDistrict'', the Norse gods are physical enough that Nikita can threaten to cut out Odin's one remaining eye with sacred scissors. This being said, she does note in her narration that he'd {{curb stomp|Battle}} her if she tried.

to:

* Comes In Creator/RobertEHoward's Literature/{{Kull}} / Literature/BranMakMorn story "Kings of the Night", this is one explanation put forth for Kull.
* All the resurrected gods
in a couple of flavors in ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfThomasCovenant'':
** The ''Elohim'' are somewhere between
the ''Literature/KrimPyramid'' books have physical gods forms and can be injured or restrained by sufficiently powerful [[TheFairFolk fair folk]]; as incarnations attacks.
* Steven Erikson's ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' is chock full
of pure [[BackgroundMagicField Earthpower]], they these, called Elder Gods and Ascendants. All are {{Pure Magic Being}}s and implied to have access to elemental magic vastly dwarfing anything mortals can wield, plus being immortal and having vast knowledge. Unfortunately, they're also [[JerkassGod jerks]]; their BlueAndOrangeMorality is centered on the idea that they are the most important beings in the universe and always know best, and though physical forms even if they don't really ''mean'' harm, they don't take kindly to people trying to deal with problems outright appear that way in ways they don't approve of and have the power novels. At least two of them are humans who took over an attunement that was vacant.
** They are far from omnipotent, though. In ''Literature/ReapersGale'', [[spoiler:Trull Sengar]], a mortal Tiste Edur, manages
to register their objections... decisively.
hold his own in combat against ancient Ascendant[[spoiler:Silchas Ruin]], at least for a while. Though at that point [[spoiler:Trull]] is also far from mortal, having become the Knight of Shadow in ''Literature/TheBonehunters''.
** The series BigBad, [[GodOfEvil Lord Foul Crippled God himself. Some of the Despiser]], is a implications of this trope are defied, however; thanks to his crippling and chaining, his physical god of a rather different breed. Once he was the cosmic opponent of [[{{God}} the Creator]] until he got [[SealedEvilInACan locked inside the Arch of Time]], binding him to a single manifestation and greatly reducing his available powers[[note]]He's around ''Elohim''-tier while bound, but form is explicitly stated to far exceed them should he regain his true stature[[/note]]. In other words, he's ''really'' a CosmicBeing, and actually very ''weak''. Withal - who, aside from being a physical god an incredibly skilled smith, is a vanilla mortal - is able to shove him over and collapse his tent on him at the end of ''Literature/MidnightTides'', and the Crippled God can't do anything about it but flail helplessly and shriek threats.
* The Naked God from the ''Literature/NightsDawn'' trilogy, an artificial construct with godlike powers and a benevolent personality.\
* In L. Jagi Lamplighter's ''Literature/ProsperosDaughter'' trilogy, the Greek wind gods are
major step down for him, one he's less characters. They are, in fact, balanced with the main characters, Prospero's children.
* Creator/RogerZelazny likes to mix mythology in with his SF, and as a result, has used this a few times:
** In ''Literature/CreaturesOfLightAndDarkness'', some of the gods are ascended humans, some aliens, some are techno-things, and some are just, well, straight up gods. (In his similar novel from the same era, ''Literature/LordOfLight'', they're just pretending.)
** ''Eye of Cat'' features Native American Physical Gods in a futuristic setting.
** And then there's the royal family in ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfAmber''. Or at least Dworkin, [[spoiler: who ''created'' the entire multiverse]].
* ''Literature/SisterAlice'' has the [[TheClan Great Families]]. As Family members age and become more experienced, they are given more "talents" - nearly intangible dark matter machinery - which give them godlike abilities. [[TimeAbyss Sister Alice]] thinks several thousand times faster
than pleased with. Like the ''Elohim'', he a regular person, can TerraForm entire worlds in mere decades, and has the power to register this displeasure on a grand scale; unlike them, he [[ThePowerOfHate really does]] [[ForTheEvulz mean harm]].
* In ''Literature/TheGirlFromTheMiraclesDistrict'', the Norse gods are physical enough that Nikita can threaten to cut out Odin's one remaining eye
[[StarKilling rip apart stars]] with sacred scissors. This being said, she does note in her narration that he'd {{curb stomp|Battle}} her if she tried.
* PlayedWith
the same effort it takes a person to flick a bug off their arm. Later in the novella ''Literature/ATasteOfHoney''. The Olorumi worship the Ashëans novel, more of the Ashëan Enclave talents available to [[DeityOfHumanOrigin elder Family members]] are shown, such as gods, AntiMatter creation, and those certainly have [[StockSuperpowers strange powers]] and [[OlderThanTheyLook are much longer lived than humans]], but Perfecta claims that the Ashëans are not gods, just people who retain some of the gods' [[{{Technobabble}} theogenetica]], and the ''true'' gods left the planet after terraforming it.internal weapons, such as X-ray lasers.



* The dead god, from Terry Mancour's ''Literature/TheSpellmongerSeries''. He is a decapitated skull, magically resurrected by goblin shamans who encased the head in globe of irionite the size of a large pumpkin. This gives him so much magical power that his presence makes a dent in the fabric of reality.
* Valentine Michael Smith of ''Literature/StrangerInAStrangeLand'' was raised by martians, some of whom were ghosts.

* In Creator/JohnVarley's ''[[Literature/GaeaTrilogy Titan]]'' series, we see the entity known as Gaea. This is essentially a living personality in an alien computer system. But Gaea is in every practical sense a deity on her little world. She is capable of shaping new forms of life, giving them intelligence and a culture of her own design. She controls the weather, the ground, and every living thing that resides on Titan.
* The Ainur from Franchise/TolkiensLegendarium 'verse (most elaborated on in ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', mentioned in ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'') are a whole ''race'' of these. They're incorporeal spirit beings created by the creator deity before the physical universe, and some entered it. Those can and many choose to freely clothe themselves in physical forms. They greater spirits, or [[CouncilOfAngels Valar]] (Powers) fill the roles of traditional Gods but act more as caretakers or stewards of the World (Arda), with one [[FallenAngel notable exception]]. Among them the most powerful are [[GodOfEvil Morgoth/Melkor]], [[TheHighQueen Varda/Elbereth]]. The lesser spirits, Maiar, are "kin" and "people" to the Valar, and appear more in ''Lord of the Rings'' and include [[BigBad Sauron]], Gandalf, [[TheStarscream Saruman]], and [[DemonLordsAndArchDevils the Balrog of Moria]]. Another good example would be Melian, a Maia, who was able to have a child with an Elf, and who used her powers to defend the kingdom of Doriath. It's worth noting that while Maiar are usually seen as "lesser" spirits, some among them, like Sauron, Melian and Arien, are vastly powerful in their own right, and can contend with the Powers themselves or put them on the defensive.
** Tolkien discussed at length the effects of being incarnated, especially where Morgoth and Sauron were concerned. Generally speaking, being incarnate is creates an advantage in the physical world, but also creates a weakness: when the physical form is damaged or destroyed, the Ainu loses part of their power and can even be killed.

* Franchise/{{Blazblue}}: The entire setting is maintained by the three "Sankishin Units" (or Orignal Units), each named after famous gods in Myth/JapaneseMythology. Ameterasu, Susanoo, and Tsukiyomi respectively. Amaterasu is a RealityWarper that created the entire setting and can manipulate it freely. Susanoo can cut through time itself and Tsukiyomi provides the ultimate defense. Notably, a major conflict is how the villains try to manipulate said gods to change the world in their own way.

* Ever since {{Superman}} died and came back from the dead, he has had a cult of worshipers though he tries to discourage them.
** [[strike: It's probably worth pointing out that Superman did not actually "die", he was punched into a (temporary) coma. This makes the cult's reason for worshipping him quite misaimed (though he is STILL a physical god in his own right).]] They also appear to have turned to their attention to the deceased Superboy/Kon-El. While both were completely dead and then revived (and this is [[DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist hardly anything new]] for comic book characters), it is canonical in the DCU that Superman's resurrection shouldn't have been possible by any means, and actually ''broke reality'' for a while. He's so much a Physical God that even things that happen in relation to him affect existence!
** Turns out that Superman, and many seemingly dead characters who miraculously returned to life, were brought back by Nekron as part of a grand GambitRoulette. Nekron, by the way, is a nigh-omnipotent who skirts this trope when he appears in the living world, and is regularly much more powerful in his own realm.

* Superman Prime, the being Superman will eventually become as seen in ''ComicBook/DCOneMillion'', plays this straight after spending ''thousands of years'' meditating inside the sun and having the last Green Lantern ring in the universe to keep his solar power at its maximum for all time.
