* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': Pain is basically human but possesses God level powers (or something like that) and tries to use them. The category... he probably thinks of himself along the lines of a savior but is more a prince type. But you can probably argue about that.

* [[Film/{{Tron}} Tron universe]]: Humans ''accidentally'' created a civilization of [[ServantRace sentient Programs]], and for the most part, they love and worship their human Users. Of the humans who find out?
** [[Film/{{Tron}} Kevin]] [[Film/TronLegacy Flynn]] started as Oblivious, went to Self-Denouncer (admitting to Tron and Yori he was totally making things up as he went along), then built The Grid and tried to the The Savior, but it blew up in his face as he ''really'' wasn't up to the task, and more or less ends as The Apathetic, as he cared little about The Grid itself and only about getting Sam and Quorra to safety.
** ''[[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Tron 2.0]]'': Thorne got shot into {{cyberspace}} and embraced being The Despot whole hog. The people ''behind'' Thorne plan on being even ''worse'' Despots. [=Ma3a=], the BenevolentAI, uploads Jet Bradley [[TakesOneToKillOne in desperation]]. Jet thwarts them, but realizing what being a User ''means'' doesn't do his sanity any favors. He ends up as a cross of Reluctant Messiah, Self-Denouncer, and The Savior, realizing that as much as he hates the idea of being a User, humans have a responsibility to the Programs and that there's always another guy like Thorne waiting in the wings.

* [[{{Bionicle}} Mata Nui]], who was worshiped as (and had the powers of) a god, then became a "normal" with some abnormal powers, [[ItsALongStory then temporarily returned to a god status]], after he's done [[spoiler: re-uniting the shattered parts of Spherus Magna and fulfilling his destiny, left his friends and people in a Self-Denouncer fashion, claiming he would never want to fail them again, so they'd best stop worshiping him and form a new society on their own. His ignorance is what caused a lot of suffering for them in the first place, you see, but still, he kept them alive... now, he doesn't ignore them any longer, but above that, he's barely of any help in his SoulJar of a mask.]]

* The GodEmperor of ''{{TabletopGame/Warhammer 40000}}'' is a mix of The Self-Denouncer and The Shepherd. He considers himself to be a human and thinks humanity should [[HumansAreSpecial worship themselves]] rather than any deities. While at first he just guided humanity instead of making his presence known, when the [[CrapsackWorld Age of Strife]] happened he decided to make his presence known since if he didn't there wouldn't have been a humanity left to guide.

* {{Superman}}, pre-ComicBook/{{Crisis|on Infinite Earths}}, is a clear-cut example of a Savior-type. PostCrisis he is a combination of a Reluctant Messiah and Self-Denouncer type - he hates being called a god, but wishes he were the god people make him out to be.
