* Downplayed to Thunderclap of Divine Warning in ''Film/DonCamillo'': The titular priest regularly speaks with Jesus and does what he can to make life miserable for the communist mayor of the Italian village under their responsibility. When Don Camillo takes it a bit too far and is told to knock it off, his response is cut short by a thundercrack in the distance on a beatiful day.

* A man is playing golf with a priest. He misses a shot and starts swearing, only to be reprimanded by the priest. He apologizes, but swears again at the next mistake. The priest tells him off again, but at the third mistake and blasphemy, thunderclouds form above, and a lightning bolt strikes down... the priest. Then a voice comes fromthe heavens, saying "Oh for ''My'' sake! Missed!"

** Foghorn Leghorn once had a moment of starting to assert his statement with a threat of lightning, but as the screen darkens and he hears thunder, he has a moment of [[GenreSavvy Genre Savviness]] and doesn't finish the remark.

* Given explicit rules in the old multisystem supplement ''TabletopGame/ThePrimalOrder'', which was basically "since so many games have gods and no real mechanical support beyond handwaving for what they can actually do, here's a system for handling that". A "primal blast", which any deity could spend divine power in the form of "primal flux" to employ, would automatically hit and cut through any and all mortal-level protections like so much tissue paper, simply reducing the target's {{hit points}} (or equivalent) directly in a suitably flashy display.

* Midway through the ''Mage Winds'' trilogy of Creator/MercedesLackey's ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' series, the protagonists learn that the theocracy of Karse, which has been an enemy of Valdemar for hundreds of years, has very abruptly cleaned up its act and sued for alliance. This occurs entirely thanks to their god, Vkandis [[FanNickname the Unsubtle]], finally getting fed up with his priesthood's corrupt and demon-summoning ways and deciding to answer the invocation at the country's annual high holy ceremony by immolating a good bit of the highest orders of his priesthood - and that just for starters.
