* 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 some sort of 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.

* [[UrExample The original]] demigod, [[Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh Gilgamesh]] himself, was actually two-thirds god. How that worked is anybody's guess.

* 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.
