Would various close-to-omnipotent Super Robots fit this trope?

Examples: Ideon (powered by a supernatural force that can effectively reset civilization and life), Getter Emperor (THE terrifying force of nature, whose pilot's voice(s) quake the very universe, and the amount of energy it throws around shatters galaxies, crushes worlds, and can even seed life into otherwise barren realms), Shin Mazinger Zero (THE ultimate form of Mazinger that surpasses Mazinkaiser, and can create and destroy entire timelines, living up to the hype of possessing the power to be God or Devil)
