** In multiple books, it is mentioned that a certain group of Ramtop monks turning up at the home of one Mrs. Marietta Cosmopolite, a seamstress of Ankh-Morpork, who has been known to threaten "If I see one more of you little orange devils peering in at me he'll feel the edge of my hand, all right?" The monks have developed martial arts based on these interactions that apparently consist of shouting gibberish at their opponent before giving them a good wallop with a broom.

** In multiple books, it is mentioned that members of a certain group of Ramtop monks keep turning up at the home of one Mrs. Marietta Cosmopolite, a seamstress of Ankh-Morpork, who has been known to threaten "If I see one more of you little orange devils peering in at me he'll feel the edge of my hand, all right?" right?". This was caused by the monk Lu-Tze renting one of Mrs. Cosmopolite's rooms, writing down her various sayings, and quoting her to explain his feats. The monks have developed martial arts based on these interactions that apparently consist of shouting gibberish at their opponent before giving them a good wallop with a broom.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': in the episode "Who Watches the Watchers", an away mission goes horribly awry when the people of a pre-warp civilization mistakenly believe Captain Jean-Luc Picard is a god after one of them is beamed aboard the ''Enterprise'' after an unfortunate accident while the away team was carrying out a mission. An attempt to dissuade the people by sending Commander Riker and Counselor Troi undercover also fails, and with Troi's life in danger, Picard beams one of the people onto the ship to explain to her that he is no god that needs appeasing, but a normal flesh-and-blood being whose "miracles" are actually the result of advanced technology, and even then, they are hardly all-powerful.

** Of note, it was worship ''specifically'' that annoyed him. [[CultOfPersonality Mere awestruck reverence was okay, and probably praiseworthy]]. He didn't want you to pray to him, but had no problem with you ritualistically calling him "the Emperor, beloved by all" every single time you had cause to mention him.

* In Nevil Shute's novel "Round the Bend", both Connie Shaklin and the narrator repeatedly deny that Connie should be worshipped as a divine manifestation. Connie states that he is just a hard-working aircraft mechanic doing what any good mechanic '''should''' do. The narrator in the end states that this is true, but that he is not really sure anymore that this friend since his youth isn't also God. Shute's finest novel.

* Literature/TheBible plays with this trope, in that followers of God are the ones to invoke this rather than God Himself (except in those cases when He would rather have obedience instead of sacrifice, or people try to worship Him in ways involving pagan practices).

* MrDeity is generally needy and self-absorbed, and loves worship. However, there are a few jokes made (particularly in the first season) about his annoyance at the level of attention and responsibility he is given. In one short, he only listens to about 3 prayers before deleting his whole inbox (half of them are just people shouting "Oh god!" during sex). In another short, he gets a call from a bigoted fundamentalist preacher, and is clearly only putting up with listening to him, and ends by trying to punk him.

* The ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''/''Series/{{Bones}}'' crossover fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6193512/1/The-Dead-Man-in-the-Lab The Dead Man in the Lab]]'' does this with Booth and Castiel. Once Booth is convinced that Castiel is a bona fide angel, he starts praying to Cas respectfully on a regular basis. Castiel is [[DudeWheresMyRespect initially pleased by Booth's regard]], but quickly comes to find the frequent prayers annoying, especially since they're distracting him while he's trying to help with the case. Eventually Dean tells Booth to can it.
