* ''Franchise/DragonAge'': According to Solas in ''Trespasser'', [[spoiler: the Evanuris aka the Elven Pantheon]] are revealed to be the medieval fantasy version of this trope. [[spoiler:Rather than actual "gods", they were merely immortal and phenomenally powerful mages that rose to prominence after an unknown war and established an empire where they were revered as deities themselves. They certainly had the power to back it up, since the two Evanuris members we see onscreen had magical abilities beyond the ken of established lore]].

* The Entity from ''NexusTheJupiterIncident'', an ancient AI capable of reshaping reality. The Entity's Creators might also count, since the last Creators have been manipulating primitive humans for centuries until they died. The twist? Their goal was to have humans design an infrastructure that would be compatible with their latest AI Angel, designed to fight the Entity. However, the last Creator died centuries before anyone even thought about creating machines that counted numbers. And yet their plan worked.

* The Cuotl from the game ''RiseOfLegends'' appear SufficientlyAdvanced, since their alien technology is light years ahead of the steampunk Vinci and the magical Alin.

* Some theories have the G-Man in the ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life}}'' series be one of these. He clearly fits the description as he is able to manipulate reality, stop time and teleport people into bizarre alien realms, all without twitching a muscle. He also appears completely unconcerned by the carnage going on around him.

* In ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}, the mysteious "Masterminds" behind the [[HumongousMecha robot]] [[ApocalypseHow battles]] [[spoiler:can erase entire Universes from existence in seconds, and appear to be keeping the entirety of the Multiverse running by wiping out "weak" Universes. The half-kilometre tall robots they build can run off life energy, fire particle beams that can vaporise mountains (and easily [[NoSell deflect]] those beams) and appear capable of [[NighInvulnerable shrugging off all human efforts to damage them]]. These robots can tank airstrikes with nary a scratch on their armour, and the pilots inside only feeling a bit warmer than usual while the surrounding landscape burns at thousands of degrees. Furthermore, they've set things up so that if anyone tries to reverse-engineer their tech, the life force of everything on that planet will just be drained anyway before the inhabitants have any chance to make headway. Notably, the heroes are completely incapable of defying the Masterminds' will, and can't subvert the giant robot battle system in any way.]]

** That's just the tip of the iceberg. [[spoiler: Kyubey was part of a [[HiveMind Hive-Minded]] race of beings called Incubators. Working together with his kind, they gathered on Earth to create the Isolation Field, an [[DeflectorShield energy field]] that [[NoSell blocked out]] the entire Universe, including the [[CosmicEntity Law of Cycles.]] And according to them, they were powerful enough to manipulate anything they can observe. The end goal of the Incubator plan in [[PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion the Rebellion movie]] was to enslave a sentient law of physics to maximise the production of magical energy, and they both partially succeeded and proved it was possible with the Field.]]

** Runners-up would be the Watchers and the Celestials, who hate each other's guts, interestingly.
*** The Watchers believe it's best not to interfere with the development of other worlds and races (the actions of Uatu, TheWatcher that frequently bends these rules, notwithstanding). The Celestials (pictured above) are all about interfering -- they guide the evolution of planets and destroy those that don't satisfy their standards. It's not a surprise that these two don't get along -- not that it really bothers the Celestials, since the Watchers' actions against them are limited to disapproving stares.
** Recently Jonathan Hickman's ''Avengers'' and ''New Avengers'' series have introduced multiple races of seemingly god-like aliens that inhabit the multiverse. Most of these races in fact inhabit and regularly travel between multiple ''realities'', conquering (or destroying) not just planets but entire ''universes''. The Builders, an advanced race that took all the galactic powers of Earth-616 (the primary setting of Marvel comics) to barely defeat, are laughed off by an inter-dimensional traveler as "only" having influence in several thousand realities. Several more far more dangerous races such as the Black Priests, Ivory Kings, and Map Makers have since been introduced.
