* Not a direct example, but The Knights of the Blackened Denarius in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' get their powers from 30 silver coins, each with a fallen angel inside. The coins are heavily implied to be ''the'' 30 coins that Judas was paid to betray Jesus. Nicodemus, leader of the Knights, also wears the noose Judas hung himself with as a necktie; it offers him protection from anything. [[spoiler:Except, as Harry finds out when he tugs on the end of it, itself.]]

* [[spoiler:Naoya]] in ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'' [[spoiler:is a reincarnation of Cain, punished by God to be reborn every time the old body dies, and has the memory of every life time he has lived ever since his first life. [[ThePunishment Over his long life he has become obsessed with revenge]] and seeks to achieve that by having Abel, the player character]], rebel against God. Granted, this is ''MegaTen'', so [[GodIsEvil YHWH]] [[GreyAndGreyMorality kinda deserves it]]. It is implied in Overclocked that YHWH [[spoiler:manipulated Cain into killing Abel.]]

** Cain is also alluded to in the VideoGame ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines''. [[spoiler:Apparently, he spends his eternal afterlife working as a cab driver in Downtown LA.]] Playing as a [[MadOracle Malkavian]], you realize this when [[spoiler:you eventually meet him]]. You would GoMadFromTheRevelation, but, y'know, you already ''are''.

** Biblical bad guys make up about 90% of the villains on Supernatural, with Lucifer being the bad guy for two seasons and various demons and [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angels]] making up the rest. Archangel Michael, while technically a WellIntentionedExtremist, was actually just as bad as Lucifer. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were also major villains, with the character of Death recurring every other season or so. Death wasn't a bad guy, but the other three definitely were.

* Played with in José Saramago's ''Cain''. Since God has ordered that Cain cannot be harmed by any living being - including Himself - Cain gets to [[WanderingJew live through all of the Old Testament]], bitter at being turned into the first murderer because he, unlike his brother, ''didn't'' want to spill blood to appease God, and horrified by the events of the OT becomes convinced that GodIsEvil. He spends a lot of time [[RageAgainstTheHeavens calling the old man out]], before eventually [[spoiler: hitching a ride on Noah's ark. When all of humanity but God's chosen survivors have drowned, Cain takes out Noah and his family SlasherMovie style, leaving God alone with an empty world. End of creation.]]
