* In ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'', MINREC is basically a robot volcano god and the whole Meltdown multiplayer mode is to appease him by escorting Minion sacrifices to "altars" so that they'll be recycled. Those that don't appease him, he'll smite in a fashion similar to what a typical volcano god does in the form of meltdowns.

'''Fr. Ted:''' Volcano God! What kind of nonsense is that? I'll ask you one more time, will you not give Catholicism a try?\\
'''Tribesman:''' It wouldn't catch on. We don't agree with the Pope's line on artificial contraception. It's the '90s for God's sake!

* Subverted in ''Literature/AutobiographyOfRed''. A character explains that the villagers of his hometown once used to throw people into the nearby volcano -- not as sacrifices, but because occasionally someone would ''return'' from the experience with "[[CameBackStrong all their weaknesses burned away]]."
