** Averted by the time of Roboute Guilliman's return, however. The pragmatic Primarch chooses to work with the Ecclesiarchy that worships his father (and him) rather than attempting to stamp it out, despite his own distaste for such religious veneration.

* In ''Manga/SaintYoungMen'', {{Jesus}} and Buddha are living in modern Japan. They manage to keep their identities secret from humans, but there's no fooling the local animals. [[http://www.mangareader.net/1406-45669-15/saint-oniisan/chapter-5.html People do notice that animals act strangely around them.]]

* ''Series/BabylonFive'': The Narns--who are unusual in TV science fiction for [[MulticulturalAlienPlanet having many religions]], each based on the "Book" of the founder--find a new religion during the course of the series, founded by followers of the Book of [[spoiler:G'Kar. Specifically, his prison memoirs. G'Kar is rather annoyed by this, as he is personally a devotee of the Book of G'Quan. He is also annoyed--but also amused--by the circumstances of the book; every copy of the book has a brown ring on a certain page. Why? Because in the Narn tradition, the "Book" of a religion must be reproduced ''exactly'' from the manuscript--and at one point during G'Kar's imprisonment, Garibaldi set his coffee mug down on one of the pages, leaving a coffee stain.]]

*** It should be noted that this explanation is as {{canon}} as any other explanation about the Lady, i.e. not at all. The official stance of TSR (and subsequently Wizards of the Coast) is that ''nobody'' [[InexplicablyAwesome knows exactly who or what she is]]. But either way, she is not fond of worship.

** In [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/198011/blessing Blessing]], a story set in the ''Fanfic/TriptychContinuum'', Celestia tries [[spoiler:and fails]] to convince a stallion whose daughter is dying that she is not a deity and thus cannot save his daughter no matter how much he prays to her. [[spoiler:When his daughter dies anyway, the stallion merely blames ''himself'' for not having enough faith.]]

* Often seen in [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic My Little Pony]] fanfiction in relation to the alicorn princesses - especially Luna and Celestia.
** [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Luna and Celestia]] in ''FanFic/UnderTheNorthernLights'', especially Celestia, who says she outlawed the worship of herself centuries ago in Equestria. They both reluctantly accept foreigners worshipping them, though Luna gets outright livid when she hears reindeer not only worship her and [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Nightmare Moon]] as the same entity, but used to practice [[HoldYourHippogriffs cervine]] [[HumanSacrifice sacrifice]]. Despite this, she keeps supporting the Temple of [[IHaveManyNames Hrimfaxi]] through the fic, though that seems to be for their social work in a poor nation and because of their claims that DarkIsNotEvil. [[spoiler: And maybe because she in her youth actually encouraged the forming of the cult, and feels responsible for it.]]
** Celestia and Luna again in [[FanFic/RealityChecksNyxverse The Nyxverse]] -- as they explain in ''Alicornundrum'', they originally tried to avoid worship when they were younger, but ponies insisted on it. Eventually they got so fed up with it that they fled into the Everfree, sealed themselves in the Tree of Harmony cave, and put themselves in a magical sleep, hoping that when they woke up everyone would have forgotten about them. Instead, they woke to found that their followers had found them, dug them up, and ''built a castle on top of them'' (according to Celestia, Luna [[ClusterFBomb invented half of the curses existing today]] when they saw this). They use this as justification for making Twilight a Princess against her will; she's going to be worshipped anyway, they might as well make it official.
** Yet again in FanFic/TheInfiniteLoops, Celestia politely asks Twilight and company to stop swearing by her since they're effectivly equal. They swear by trees instead.

[[spoiler:When his daughter dies anyway, the stallion merely blames ''himself'' for not having enough faith.]]
** In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', Celestia, while she ''is'' an actual deity, isn't comfortable with the adoration and the separation it puts between her and her little ponies...on the other hoof, Luna is perfectly fine with it.
** Upon her ascension, Sunset Shimmer of the ''Fanfic/OversaturatedWorld'' finds that an entire religion is developing around her, complete with holy images and competing sects. At first she tries to stop it, but eventually grows resigned and just throws up a Ewetube channel to direct their worship.
** ''Fanfic/TheElementsOfHarmonyAndTheSaviorOfWorlds'': Due to the NarniaTime in effect between Equestria and Earth after the Rainbow Bridge closed, Megan finds that tales of all of her exploits in Ponyland have since [[LegendFadesToMyth evolved]] into presenting her as a quasi-divine figure known as the "Mag'ne". She's somewhat disturbed by the adoration she gets from the ponies as a result, as is her husband Mike, who gets worshipped by association.
** TD is extremely uncomfortable over being worshipped in ''[[FanFic/TheNonBronyverse TD the Alicorn Princess]]'', but eventually goes along with it in order to use the religion that's been based around him as a force for good.

** According to ''TabletopGame/GURPSDiscworld'', the Disc's nature gods aren't particularly in favour of the various nature cults, like the druids and shamans. They get plenty of ''belief'' from rural superstitions, whereas ''worshippers'' tend to want something in return. They don't feel strongly enough about it to do anything about it.

* Marvel's Thor was widely worshipped as the Asgardian God of Thunder he truly is (as well as war, strength and agriculture) by the Vikings and various other Scandinavian and Germanic peoples for about a couple of thousand years. He actively encouraged said worship by personally appearing on Midgard (Earth) before the Vikings most notably, spurring them on the victory in battle in his and Asgard's name. But when Thor later discovered that many of the "battles" some Vikings engaged in were actually raids and the wholesale slaughter of religious (usually Christian) orders of holy men, Thor denounced the Vikings' actions, renounced their worship, and returned to Asgard, not returning to Midgard until Odin exiled him there under the guise of Dr. Donald Blake to learn humility.
