* In ''Theatre/TheBibleTheCompleteWordOfGodAbridged'', John the Baptist [[AudienceParticipation asks the audience]] to give him "an amen for the way of the Lord." When the audience responds sufficiently loudly, he says, "Thank you, Jesus!" Jesus thereupon enters, comes right up to him and says, "You're very welcome." John gasps.

* [[TheEmperor Yhwach]] of ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. It's right there in his name: When he was just born, the people considered him a holy child due to the miracles he could perform. The first thing he ever heard was of them chanting "YHWH" (Yahweh), one of the ancient Hebrew names for God. He took that name for himself, and tweaked it just a had to promote his own identity, thus resulting in Yhwach.



* In ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'', the ruthless savior Kenshiro invades the Land of God, a fortress where mad soldiers plan to rule over the post-apocalyptic world. While a DrillSergeantNasty forces a rookie to kill his own brother, this exchange ensues:
-->'''Serge''': In the country of God, only superior beings will have the title of ''Golan''! If you wish to be chosen, kill your opponents! You must survive to build the chosen's country! God chose us to lead this war!\\
'''Kenshiro''': I don't remember choosing you.\\
'''Serge''': Wha- What?! Who said that?!\\
'''Kenshiro''': The God of Death!!\\
'''Mooks''': What do you think you're doing, bastard?!\\
'''Kenshiro''': ([[OffhandBackhand backhanding them]]) ''I told you that I'm the God of Death!''

* This trope is a running joke in the WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fandom. The Princesses Celestia and Luna are ancient, possibly immortal beings who directly control the sun and the moon and regularly and visibly wield enormous magical power, so the general [[Main/{{Fanon}} fan assumption]] is that the standard swear among residents of Equestria is something along the lines of "Oh my Celestia" or "for Luna's sake!" However, these beings of unfathomable power [[Main/{{Canon}} canonically]] are not above randomly visiting ponies for weddings, parties, festivals, and the like, which leads directly to this trope.

Another term for those that wish to subvert the term with the sisters use something like "What in the name of Faust" or "Sweet mother of Faust!"
