** In the ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'', divine retribution via lightning bolt is not that common, as Talos the god of storms is very possessive of his exclusive dominion over lightning in Faerun. Inverted in Mulhorand, where the war-god Anhur has been known to publicly strike his ''favored'' followers with spectacular lightning bolts that do them no harm, the better to convince skeptical Mulhorandis that their mission is a holy one.

* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proto-Indo-European_religion common Indo-European pantheon]] has this as the primary attribute of the sky god ''Dyeus'', from which developed the Greek Zeus, the Hindu Indra, and Norse Tyr; later, other gods got this attribute as religion changed over time (for instance, as Tyr was displaced in the Norse pantheon by Odin and Thor, they took on some of his attributes).

However, this god was appearently associated with the daylight sky and the sun foremost; the thunderer god aspect acquired by Zeus and Jupiter seems to have been the result of conflation with other gods.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': The trope is parodied in one episode. When Quack Quack the indestructible duck decides to leave Smileyland, AxCrazy psychopath Mr. Cat can't control his murderous impulses and decides to attack someone else, deciding on resident ChewToy Stumpy. Just as he's about to bring a chainsaw down on Stumpy's head, he gets struck by lightning. Stumpy joyfully exclaims "God exists!" and then he also gets struck by lightning and decides to stop believing in God.

* The NIV translation of Literature/TheBible has God raining down lightning strikes during the plague of hail, although another common interpretation of this passage is that the hail itself was on fire.

The Abrahamic God otherwise is rarely depicted as using lightning specifically, preferring fire and brimstone.

* In ''A Prehistory of the ComicStrip/FarSide'', Gary Larson mentioned this while talking about including God in his comics. One comic in particular, captioned, "God as a kid tries to make a chicken in his room." featured an AshFaced kid post chemistry-set explosion surrounded by tons of feathers.
