* Jesse Custer in Creator/GarthEnnis' ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'' series, who is BlessedWithSuck by literally having unwittingly becoming the "Word of God." (No relation to the [[WordOfGod trope of the same name]].)host for Genesis, a spirit that is half-angel and half-demon. This gives Jessie a CompellingVoice superpower with almost no limits, and it also gives him more problems than he can count.

* ''Manga/SailorMoon'': Sailor Pluto, who is the daughter of the god of time, "Chronos". King Endymion in Act 13, says: "The blood of the god of time, "Chronos", runs through her veins.", and the incantation to use the Space-Time Key has "the almighty god of time, the guardian of time's father, Chronos!", and Sailor Pluto is that guardian of time.

** This actually does have an impact on the plot because one of Gilgamesh's Noble Phantasms, Enkidu, get's stronger the higher the target's Divinity Ranking.

** This actually does have an impact on the plot because one of Gilgamesh's Noble Phantasms, Enkidu, get's stronger the higher the target's Divinity Ranking. [[spoiler: Too bad when that target happens to be Herakles, not only a demigod who ascended to full godhood after his death but the one who, to quote the Myths and Legends folder on this page, had more of Zeus' blood in him than anybody else except for Zeus himself.]]

* Genie in the ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' sequels and series. After being freed, he has gone from having "phenomenal cosmic powers" to "semi-phenomenal nearly-cosmic powers".
* In Disney's ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'', the title character is this trope. Unlike in Greek Mythology, he was ''born'' a full-fledged god to Zeus and Hera, then Hades's minions remove most of his godhood with a potion, just leaving him with SuperStrength (due to not drinking the last drop). In the series, he was regularly referred to as a demigod, and we met several others.
* Maui in ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' is a Disney depiction of a mythic figure common in a vast number of real-life Polynesian mythologies. While real-life depictions range from mere human to full-on divinity, this movie's depiction settles for the middle of the road and explicitly calls Maui a demigod. In this version, he was not born SemiDivine, but was abandoned to the ocean by AbusiveParents who didn't want him. Well, the Gods weren't gonna have any of ''that'', so they took him in and [[TouchedByVorlons made him Maui]], Demigod of the Wind and Seas (and a Shapeshifter who eventually becomes a Hero to All).

* [[UrExample The original]] demigod, [[Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh Gilgamesh]] himself, was actually ''[[UnevenHybrid two-thirds]]'' god. How that worked is anybody's guess.[[note]]Only if that is by lineage. By genetics it is simple, the DNA he herited from his demi-god father was 33.3% human and 16.7% divine. Combined with the 50% divine DNA he got from his mother, that makes him 66.7% god and 33.3# human[[/note]]

* [[UrExample The original]] demigod, [[Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh Gilgamesh]] himself, was actually ''[[UnevenHybrid two-thirds]]'' god. How god, thanks to having three parents (two gods, one mortal; the Mesopotamians thought that worked is anybody's guess.[[note]]Only if that is by lineage. By genetics multiple fathers could contribute to a child). Or it is simple, the DNA he herited from his demi-god father was 33.3% human and 16.7% divine. Combined with the 50% divine DNA he got from his mother, that makes might just have been a poetic way of calling him 66.7% "more god and 33.3# human[[/note]]than man" without making him fully divine.

** In a sense ''all of life itself'' is this. [[BigGood Fauna]] [[TopGod Luster]] is called the Mother of All Things because She gives birth to ''all'' souls. One side story even has all mortal life referred to as the half siblings of the Alicorns for this reason. This may explain how mortals have the potential to [[DeityOfHumanOrigin become gods]].
