* Most of the Suul'ka in ''VideoGame/SwordOfTheStars II'' are a bit annoyed with the Zuul for their fawning adoration, with the possible exception of the Bloodweaver, who created them. Though they'll play along so long as they're [[HumanSacrifice fed.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/{{Domovoi}}'', the Precursors are disgusted by the Kaiju Cult's worship of their kind and of the Kaiju, calling it "barbaric superstition." In a more humorous example, [[spoiler: Striker Eureka]] is not amused by being turned into a shrine by a Jaeger-worshiping sect and takes every opportunity to chew his devotees out, which the non-English-speaking worshipers completely misconstrue.

* Somber Kitty from ''Literature/MayBird'' is mistaken for a deity by a group of Egyptian ghosts simply by virtue of being a cat. Being a cat he doesn't understand the worse aspects of this, such as their plan to sacrifice him to Ra, but he still escapes because he wants to find his master, the titular May Bird.

[[AliceAndBob Bob]] is neither a true messiah nor [[GodGuise a scam artist]] wanting to make his own religion. He's just a regular good guy[[SecretOrganizationCravingIntelligentEnigmaticTropersYonder .]] And yet he is made into an object of misplaced religious faith. For added irony, this religion is likely to be one he finds repulsive or ''would'' find repulsive, in the cases where he's not even aware of having followers. Of course, if the character is of a decent sort, he will try to clear up the misunderstanding, but that might take some persuading to do so.

* ''Series:YouMeAndTheApocalypse'': Many of the "messiahs" that Father Jude and Sister Celine investigate are examples of this, including Frankie, [[spoiler:Jamie and Layla's daughter]].

** Most notably, we have Jerome Blake. A man who simply just to save as much as he could from the inevitable wars between the Great Houses, he set up Earth (and the interstellar phone company based there) to be completely neutral and untouchable, the (secular) guardians of advanced technology, so that civilisation in the Inner Sphere could be rebuilt once the fires of war burned themselves out. One set of 'deathbed revelations' to his 'chosen disciple' later, we have the foundations of the [[CargoCult pseudo-church known as ComStar]], and after a couple of centuries of piled-on dogma and trappings? The [[ChurchMilitant Word of Blake]] and their Jihad.

* In ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'', Kat is able to activate (and de-activate) some of the old Court robots. To the modern robots, it looks as though she has the power to [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=898 grant life and then take it away.]]
