* 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).

* Gordon Freeman in ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' does one better. He is seen basically The PlayerCharacter of ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'', according to ancient prophecy that has widely been forgotten or written off as the second coming (the little bible references like Judith Mossman betraying him (Judith nonsense, is the female form "Reincarnation of Judas) don't help stopping it).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.

* In ''LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima'' or ''[[LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima The Familiar Of Zero]]'', the eponymous familiar, Saito Chevalier de Hiraga, is considered a wash at first, with no redeeming abilities at all, until you find out that [[spoiler:he is actually the second coming of a legendary familiar capable of wielding any weapon, from the magic world or his own, real, world, with great expertise]]. * In the SailorMoon anime, when the Senshi travel to [[TheFuture Crystal Tokyo]], King Endymion explains to them that in the early 21st century, Earth fell into an Ice Age that only ended when ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' woke up from a thousand-year slumber and became Neo Queen Serenity.

* One of the main problems the Imperium faces in ''Warhammer40K'' is the GodEmperor's current state. Some believe he will someday return to his full power, others believe the Golden Throne keeping him "alive" must be unplugged so that he can be returned (which could very well doom the Imperium as a whole if they're wrong, as currently the only hing He's capable of doing is projecting a psychic beacon without which FTLTravel is impossible for Imperials), still others are looking to jump-start him by finding all the demigods he sired during his millenia of WalkingTheEarth and sacrificing them simultaneously... and naturally each faction believes their interpretation is correct and the others are dangerous heretics who must be corrected with fire.

* The film ''BlessTheChild'' was touching enough for some people in a MisaimedFandom sort of way to take it for gospel, believing that the girl exists and is the second coming. * In ''JesusChristVampireHunter'', Jesus' second coming happens in part because God wants him to fight sunlight-immune vampires that prey on lesbians.
