* Common throughout ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series. Not even counting the optional [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric]] sidequests, the PlayerCharacter usually receives some form of divine aid during the main quest. To note:
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', you are ([[TheUnchosenOne supposedly]]) the prophesied {{reincarnation}} of [[FounderOfTheKingdom St. Nerevar]], as foretold by the Daedric Prince Azura, Nerevar's patron deity. About halfway through the main quest, after fulfilling the first portion of the prophesy and finding the secret Cavern of the Incarnate, Azura gifts you Nerevar's [[RingOfPower Moon-and-Star ring]]. Forged by the ancient [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]] and blessed by Azura herself to kill anyone that tries to wear it except for Nerevar, it serves as a symbol identifying you as the [[YouAreTheTranslatedForeignWord Nerevarine]] and allowing you to fulfill the rest of the prophesy.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'':
*** Averted in the main quest, where it is [[HiddenBackupPrince Martin]] who receives [[spoiler:the aid of Akatosh, the Aedric God of Time]] at the end. You spend most of the main quest as Martin's [[TheLancer Lancer]] and HypercompetentSidekick. However, you are also the HeroOfAnotherStory (two, in fact)...
*** In the ''Knights of the Nine'' expansion, you are seeking the blessed equipment of the [[LongDeadBadass ancient hero]] (and [[SociopathicHero psychopathic]] [[FantasticRacism racist]] [[TheBerserker berserker]]), Pelinal Whitestrake. Pelinal's ancient enemy, [[BigBad Umaril the Unfeathered]] has returned and is seeking to destroy the [[SaintlyChurch Nine Divines]] for supporting his enemies thousands of years ago. Throughout the expansion's main quest, you are guided by the mysterious Prophet in retrieving these artifacts. [[spoiler:It's strongly implied that the Prophet is really Talos, the DeityOfHumanOrigin Ninth Divine, in disguise]].
*** In the ''Shivering Isles'' expansion, you enter the [[EldritchLocation titular realm]] at the behest of its master, Sheogorath, the Daedric Prince of [[MadGod Madness]]. He serves as your divine patron throughout as you [[spoiler:attempt to end the EternalRecurrance destruction of his realm by his ArchEnemy Jyggalag, the Daedric Prince of [[ControlFreak Order]]]]. The situation ends up being a ''bit'' more complicated that Sheogorath lets on, and at the end, [[spoiler:he passes the mantle of Mad God [[AGodIsYou onto you]]]].
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'':
*** As a [[TheChosenOne Dragonborn]], you are a mortal gifted with [[OurAngelsAreDifferent immortal Aedric soul]] of a [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragon]] by Akatosh himself. However, this gift does not reveal itself until there are actually dragons present, which happens very early in the main quest. Those who are Dragonborn come with an innate understanding of the [[MakeMeWannaShout Thu'um]], the draconic LanguageOfMagic which allows for small scale [[RealityWarper Reality Warping]]. When a dragon is slain, a Dragonborn can [[YourSoulIsMine absorb its soul]], [[ResurrectiveImmortality permanently killing]] the dragon while boosting the powers of the Dragonborn.
*** In the ''Dragonborn'' DLC, your patron (whether you like it [[UnwittingPawn or not]]) is [[EldritchAbomination Hermaeus Mora]], the Daedric Prince of [[KeeperOfForbiddenKnowledge Knowledge]]. In exchange for performing services for him, he teaches you the final word of the "Bend Will" shout, which allows you to ''ride dragons''. By the end of the DLC's main quest, Mora [[spoiler:sees you as his new champion]]. Again, whether you like it or not...

EnigmaticEmpoweringEntity. For the exact opposite, where the hero is noticeably given nothing useful when being assigned a quest, see WithThisHerring.

* Subverted in ReBoot. One episode had the User send Mainframe a new file upgrade that is supposed to help the heros. When Bob takes the upgrade inside the Principal Office to install it, Megabyte pops out of it and seizes control of the core control chamber.

* In "Bottom", when Richie and Eddie are stranded at the top of a Big Wheel ( which will be demolished in the morning), they are rescued by the hand of god. At least, until [[spoiler: they admit they don't actually believe in god, and plummet to their deaths]]. They got better, though.

* Very much played with in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached''. The four are told that they received their considerable magic from the Fans and the C'hovite gods so that they'll be equipped to go on the Vasyn quest. However, this is not the true situation at all. John is first [[WingedHumanoid transformed]] because the Fans have to save his life, and Shag intends to change him back as soon as she can figure out how. Then Ringo independently crops up [[PsychicPowers psychic]], and the Fans realize they'd better make sure George and Paul get magic too, or things will be quite awkward amongst the four. It's only after the four are fully empowered that the C'hovite gods notice them and hire them (via the Fans) to go on the Vasyn quest.

* Crossing over with TakeUpMySword, Luke gets his lightsaber from [[TheObiWan Obi-Wan]] in ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ANewHope'', a move straight out of TheHerosJourney. Though oddly, he never uses it until [[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack the second movie]].

* ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' has power-ups given to all the Seishi by Taiitsukun. Arguably, the Shinzaho created by the Priestesses could also qualify.
