* In Myth/HinduMythology, Ganesh was a boy who was appointed by the Goddess Parvati to stop anyone from entering her bathroom while taking her bath. When Ganesh stopped her husband Shiva from entering, Shiva cut his head off. After Parvati found out what happened, she became angry, and Shiva had to fix Ganesh by attaching an elephant's head to Ganesh. Ganesh was given demigod status in the Hindu pantheon, and is supposed to be a sort of door god.

* ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' [[TheChosenOne Luke fon Fabre]] is proclaimed by the [[BecauseDestinySaysSo Score]] to inherit the power of Lorelei, the PureMagicBeing behind the Score, which makes him a lesser RealityWarper with the power to destroy the whole world if he was of the mind for it. [[spoiler: That is, the ''real'' Luke, now known as Asch, is this. The Luke the audience meets first and is TheHero of the piece is the replica of the original and, by the verse's physics, actually a GodInHumanForm, being ''another'' Lorelei.]]

* ''Literature/TheSorcererOfTheWildeeps'':
** Demane is a demigod, though that's a tenuous descriptor as he admits himself, considering he is seven and five generations removed from his truly divine aunt on his mother's and father's sides, respectively. Aunty claims he's nonetheless stronger than anyone she's seen in a couple generations, and his divine heritage allows him to work minor miracles. He also has SuperStrength, a [[TheNoseKnows superiour sense of smell]], can see in the dark and can control his metabolism to an extent. All of this has earned him the moniker 'Sorcerer'.
** Captain is, according to Demane, way closer to the divine than Demane himself. His SuperStrength is superiour to Demane's, as is his HealingFactor. He has HyperAwareness as well, his voice is so beautiful he cannot speak but sings and his hair can drink sunlight, which is why he keeps it hidden.

* In the novella ''Literature/ATasteOfHoney'', most of the important characters turn out to have some divine blood:
** Aqib is related with Adónane and Perfecta through his mother's line of descent, although it's been many generations and the blood is very thin. It still allows him to [[SpeaksFluentAnimal communicate with animals]] on a level non-divine people cannot.
** Femysade, also distantly related with the Ashëans, turns out to be their prophesized scientific savant and her smidgen of divine blood allows her to use their gadgets.
** Lucretia, being the daughter of Aqib ''and'' Femysade, develops [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]] at the age of eight and [[spoiler:her own son Qary has the strongest telekinetic talent seen in a very long time]].

* ''Literature/TheDivineCities''
** With a pantheon of squabbling gods reigning over the Continent, it's not a surprise that there were plenty of semi-divine beings around before the Kaj killed the Continent's Divinities. Those beings were called the Blessed and reality itself felt the urge to accomodate their wishes, warping itself around them and -- to a lesser extent -- around their descendants. Saypur's last Kaj and resident godslayer, upon conquering the Continent, [[spoiler:dragged them and any other divine creatures he could find out into the streets and executed them all.]]
** In an ironic turn of events, [[spoiler:the Kaj himself was part Divine, though he didn't know this until the last Divinity told him]]. It was the only reason, in fact, why and how he menaged to develop a weapon strong enough to kill the gods, [[spoiler:as a non-Blessed human could not have accomplished that]].
** PlayedWith in Shara, who initially is taken aback by the idea of all her achievements in life being due to her being a descendant of the Kaj, but she is then assured that she has not inherited enough of it for reality to warp itself around her.
** [[spoiler:Vinya Komayd, Shara's aunt and head of the Ministry of Cultural Affairs]], on the other hand, turns out to be Blessed, meaning her entire political career was not her own achiement. Her bitterness over that discovery is what kicks the plot of ''City of Stairs'' off by ordering the death of Dr. Efrem Pangyui, who made the discovery in the first place.

** The Celestial sorcerer bloodline is a sorcerer of any race who either has a good-aligned Outsider ancestor somewhere in their family tree, was blessed by a good-aligned deity at their birth, or something similar.
