If we are talking about frequency (=how many times), the usual way is not to use 'for'; but can I use 'for' here?:

-John was thought to be the saviour __ more than once.

In English, we can use 'for' in Just for once she arrived on time.; I think using 'for' is possible in the 'John...' sentence above. Do you agree?

No--there is no word which should go in that blank. There is no need for a blank there.

And that could alternatively be written:

John, more than once, was thought to be the saviour.
