In brief: A wide range
Delusions associated with schizophrenia can cover the gamut from believing one has superpowers (reading minds, influencing world events, being invulnerable) to fears of persecution (others reading your mind, having devices implanted in the body for various purposes, being made fun of on tv) to grandiose ideas of being sent to save the world or protect it from some specific danger.
