* ''Film/CloudAtlas'': Meronym and the other Prescients are this, to the Valley folk. Subverted in that the Prescients are in crisis with no place to live.

** In the StargateVerse, the Ancients, the "good guy" counterpart to the Ori, are also [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence "ascended"]] human-like beings. Though they have a strict policy of [[NeglectfulPrecursors not interfering in mortal matters]], the Ancients left all sorts of neat tech lying around when they ascended (including the eponymous stargates and [[Series/StargateAtlantis city of Atlantis]]). The Ancients are often said to have re-created human life across the galaxy when they started ascending.

* Rick of ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' is a rare example of a sufficiently advanced ''human''; not only does he travel between Universes on a regular basis, but he's also able to create new ones and populate them with sentient life, as shown in "The Ricks Must Be Crazy". He also created a species of roughly equivalent complexity to humans in "Meeseeks and Destroy", and in "Vindicators 3: The Return of World Ender", he claims to be able to "do anything, but only if I feel like it".

** From ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'', there's [[spoiler:the Jaardan, the species who created the terraforming network capable of rewriting a biosphere in minutes, controlled from a moon-sized dyson sphere, along with creating an entire species. They were driven off by a sufficiently advanced other, who unleashed the physics-breaking Scourge on them for reasons unknown.]]



* In ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedI'' [[spoiler: the surviving members of the First Civilization ''were'' the basis for the deities of most religions, both due to their technology and the fact that they ruled over humanity before humankind rebelled.]] The Pieces of Eden have effects considered explicitly to be "magic" by those who witness them, though Altair concludes that it is simply sufficiently advanced -- and supremely dangerous -- technology. Among the noted abilities of the Pieces of Eden are mind control and immense amounts of technical knowledge (the Apples); telekinesis and mind control (the Staff); resurrection of the dead (the Ankh); healing severe wounds, disease, and genetic disorders (the Shroud); and telepathy (the Crystal Skulls). Some of the artifacts are capable of temporal distortion (the device responsible for the Philadelphia Event) or outright seeing into the future; [[spoiler: one of the "senses" of the First Civilization was "knowledge" which apparently allowed them to know things that would be impossible to understand otherwise, and this apparently included the ability to see the future]].

You know the type. Sooner or later one shows up on every SpaceOpera or WagonTrainToTheStars. They're the alien being that can do ''anything'' with the [[HandWave wave]] of a {{h|umanAliens}}and (or [[StarfishAliens tentacle]], or [[PlantAliens tendril]] of [[EnergyBeing energy]]). Sometimes they're hostile, sometimes they're benevolent, sometimes [[AboveGoodAndEvil above it all]] or just... [[BlueAndOrangeMorality different]], but regardless they can really cramp the style of a young, expanding race looking to make a name for itself on the galactic scene. Usually, though, they tend to just be omnipotent jackasses, looking for a cheap laugh. More often than not, they tend to be [[CantArgueWithElves egotistical and haughty, thinking little of]] [[PunyEarthlings humans and "lesser beings".]] Sometimes you can exploit their sense of honor or fair play, or their desire for solitude, to make them go away. Or maybe you just have to wait for their parents to come and take them home. Unfortunately, you can't always get rid of them -- just ask [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Jean-Luc Picard]] (and don't even get his colleague [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Capt. Janeway]] ''started'').

** The Asgardians, as seen in ''Film/{{Thor}}'' and ''Film/TheAvengers2012'', are benevolent MadeOfDiamond humanoids with incredible powers that are effectively {{Magitek}}.
** ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' introduces Celestials, mentioned in the ComicBook section and pictured above. There is even a cameo of Eson the Searcher, [[spoiler: obliterating a failed experiment.]]
** ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'' features Ego, an eons-old living planet [[spoiler:revealed to be a Celestial]]. His human form is merely an projection from his true stellar body, who has the power to assimilate and control matter and destroys an entire fleet of starfighters by [[OneManArmy himself]]. When other characters call him a God, he says he is one with a small "g", meaning he is only a immensely powerful being instead of all-powerful.

** ''Comicbook/MsMarvel'' gave this treatment to Hekate, who in Myth/ClassicalMythology was something of a SixthRanger; here, she identified herself as an extradimensional explorer whom ancient humans had mistaken for a goddess.

* The Visitors from ''LightNovel/SukaSuka'' are implied to be this. They are immortal beings of extraterrestrial origin who arrived via starship after a long journey from their homeoworld. Nostalgic for their lost home, they shaped the world they found into something similar and created the races that now inhabit it.
