* In the two NG+ missions for ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiStrangeJourney'' the Angel Metatron reveals that both him and the Demiurge are pieces of God. Who was broken into pieces by the Mother Goddesses of Old after losing his love for humans and humanity losing faith in him. Depending on your choice you can let him be [[SealedEvilInACan sealed again]] or let him go. [[GodIsEvil Just don't let him be free]] [[UngratefulBastard unless you're]] law aligned.

** Like ''II'', ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'' reveals that both Lucifer and Merkabah, and to an extent, the Archangels, are two halves of Satan, who instigated the war between Law and Chaos under God's order. When invading YHVH's Universe, the spirit of Walter and Jonathan, the two former's human vessel, merged to become Satan once more.

* While Emil isn't a god, he's the oldest and one of the strongest beings in ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'', and [[spoiler: prior to the formation of [=YoRHa=], he ended up creating multiple clones of himself to help fight off the alien invasion, a process that fractured his psyche to the point that the original Emil now thinks he's merely one of his many clones, and his clones have since gone insane from the process as well as living for thousands of years.]]

* In the StarWarsExpandedUniverse, the Mandalorians believe that all who follow the way of their culture are part of the ''manda' or oversoul. To turn one's back on the Mandalorian culture is to lose contact with this greater, shared bond and is considered less than nothing. To an extent, TheForce could also be considered this, with every living being being part of the Force (jury's out on whether the Vong were really an exception).

* Carl Jung's idea of a "collective unconscious". Basically, the collective unconscious is an [[AkashicRecords Akashic Record]]-like entity which takes the form of a Freudian Unconscious on a cosmic, impersonal, universal scale. It brings forth our conscious psychic experience through trope-like archetypes. Although your mileage may vary, if you consider the collective unconscious as "God", since it's after all a MindScrew to fully explain here on ThisVeryWiki. Jung, though, was very interested in explaining it away as quantum physics, entanglement theory, et cetera, and actually discussed the subject with pantheist UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein.

* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', it transpires that the Phoenix imbues fragments of Herself into chosen hosts - and, furthermore, that there are more fragments lying around, in various forms, than there are hosts. One is hinted to be Laevateinn a.k.a. [[spoiler: the phoenix feather Odin gave Harry]]. Another, however, is later confirmed to be [[spoiler: Lily's protection on Harry]], while yet another was stolen by the first Dark Phoenix, [[spoiler: Surtur]]. It's the latter two that cause problems.

* In the last arc of ''ComicBook/XMan'', it's revealed that several of the characters in the arc encountered by Nate were, in fact, one person from the Brilliant City who'd escaped her enemy - the arc's villain - by splintering herself across the Multiverse. Nate, being possibly the most powerful {{Telepath}} in Marvel's multiverse at this point, put her back together.

** The Seons and the Skaze from ''Literature/{{Elantris}}'' are also Splinters (or something very close) of two Shards called Aona (who holds Devotion or one similarly named) and Skai (who held Dominion) respectively. They are also the Source of the Aon Dor and the other magic systems in Elantris. They were splintered when [[spoiler: Odium, another Shard, came to the planet they were on, defeated them both and splintered them]]

* In Brandon Sanderson's multiverse Franchise/TheCosmere, all the gods are actually originally-human minds bound to pieces of ''something'' else ( the pieces are called Shards) that was destroyed millennia ago (though whether Adonalsium was a god or something more like TheForce is unclear). At the end of the [[Literature/MistbornTheOriginalTrilogy Mistborn trilogy]], two opposing Shards get combined together into a single deity.
** Also, WordOfGod has revealed that the Returned of Literature/{{Warbreaker}} are empowered by Splinters of power from another Shard, called Endowment. Yes, they're pieces of a god that is a piece of a god.

** The spren from ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'' are pieces of three other Shards, Honor, Odium and Cultivation. Syl even states it at some point.
--->Oh, but I am a god! Just a very, very small piece of one.

* In ''Fanfic/TheBridge'', it turns out that [[spoiler:[[BigGood Harmony]]]] divided [[spoiler:her]] power up while keeping about 30-40 percent of [[spoiler:her]] full power. [[spoiler:The Elements, Rainbow Powers, Celestia, and Luna are all those pieces she split off. According to WordOfGod, she's capable of recalling them whenever she wants to, but given at least two of those things are sapient beings, that [[GodzillaThreshold is obviously something she doesn't want to do.]]]]
