* The [[TropeNamers TropeNamer]] is Literature/TheBible, with its prediction of Jesus Christ's return. How it happens varies within the sects of Christianity, as some sects see it as a literal return that's yet to happen, and others see it as only a "spiritual return" that either happened in 70 A.D. with the destruction of Jerusalem or has yet to happen with the church's mandate of preaching the gospel to every creature and making disciples of all nations being interpreted as a mandate to "make the whole world Christian" by whatever means are necessary.

* Played with on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''; Peter meets Jesus working at a record store and believes it's the second coming, only to be told that it's not the case and that he comes back every hundred years or so to catch up with the world.

* In ''ComicBook/TheChroniclesOfWormwood'', Wormwood's friend Jay is the Second Coming of Christ, although he's [[strike:not often]] entirely lucid for all of a minute at the climax of the series. Because he has severe brain damage as the result of a cop caving in the side of his head with a nightstick. Lift the dreadlocks on his right temple and you can see a three-inch scar. His daddy sent him to Earth in the freaking sixties. PoliceBrutality at its finest.[[/folder]]

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' had a Klingon religious caste try to use [[CloneJesus cloning]] and [[FakeMemories memory construction]] to recreate their local Messiah Kahless, so that they (with him as their puppet) could take over the Klingon Empire and "[[GloryDays restore it to greatness]]". The episode ended with the truth being revealed, and both the clone and Klingon society took it remarkably well: as a compromise, Kahless II ends up becoming the figurehead Emperor (a previously vacant position).

* Gordon Freeman in ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' does one better. He is seen basically as the second coming (the little bible references like Judith Mossman betraying him (Judith is the female form of Judas) don't help stopping it).

Added DiffLines:

* The PlayerCharacter of ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'', according to ancient prophecy that has widely been forgotten or written off as nonsense, is the "Reincarnation of the Spirit of Nasrudin", Nasrudin being an enormously powerful Elven mage who died two millenia ago. [[spoiler:Rather, he vanished to the Isle of Thanatos, and the PlayerCharacter is, indeed, merely a person [[ExactWords of the same spirit]].]] Made much more hilarious if the player elects to be a half-Ogre, half-Orc or similarly discriminated-against race.

* On the ''{{Misfits}}'' Christmas Episode, an [[SinisterMinister evil Priest]] manages to acquire an array of flashy superpowers, including the ability to walk on water, in order to convince the local population that he is the second coming of Jesus (so he can steal vast quantities of money from the poor and sexually abuse women without repercussions).

* The Allagan Empire in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV: A Realm Reborn'' resurrected their legendary first emperor, Xande, to lead them into a new golden age after a long period of stagnation. The Allagan Empire did indeed experience a dramatic resurgence under Xande's rule, but ultimately he subverted this trope, embracing nihilism in the face of having accomplished ''everything'' and deciding to destroy the world, only to destroy his own empire instead.
