* ''AsurasWrath'' has the Shinkoku Trastrium civilization, which are actually super-powered human cyborgs descended from Genetically altered humans, have a lot in common with this trope, with a {{Hinduism}} and {{Buddhism}} twist.

* The ''HumanxCommonwealth'' series by Creator/AlanDeanFoster features a vast array of alien species of varying technology levels, but this particular trope belongs solely to the Xunca. Living a billion years ago, they dominated the entire galaxy and regularly converted entire planets into machines for various projects. They fled to AnotherDimension after encountering an [[EldritchAbomination unstoppable galaxy-devouring horror]], but not before leaving behind a superweapon ''built out of'' the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_attractor Great Attractor]], to which the main protagonist, Flinx, is the key. That's galactic-scale engineering for you.

What actually ''separates'' Sufficiently Advanced Aliens from genuine gods can get a little vague, especially with the likes of the [[Series/StargateSG1 Ori]], or for that matter [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Q]], who ''do'' [[GodGuise claim to be deities]], or, for that matter, [[TenchiMuyo Juraian royalty]], who don't, but ''are''. Usually, [[NoSuchThingAsSpaceJesus being found in space]] and/or opposing the heroes' lack of belief is considered enough reason to [[VillainByDefault reject their claims]]. One possible distinction between the two is that gods are believed by their followers to actually be above the laws of physics (though there are plenty that aren't), whereas sufficiently advanced aliens have just figured them out enough to manipulate them to their favor (and again, plenty of exceptions there, too).
