* 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.
-->"I was mostly worried about the last cartoon shown here. Not because of readers, who for the most part found it to be a light and silly drawing, but because I started to feel like I was bucking for a lightning bolt to come out of the sky and turn me into something like the kid here."

* In the 2010 ''{{Clash of the Titans|2010}}'', King Acrisius [[OffingTheOffspring tosses his wife and Perseus into the sea]]. He decides this would be a great time to tell Zeus (Perseus's real father) to suck it. Zeus does not hesitate to respond.

* ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic'' had the balls to claim that Website/ChuckNorrisFacts are a bunch of bullshit, thus God (with Chuck Norris as head) struck him dead with lightning. ''[[RunningGag A-CHUCK-A-NORRIIIIIIIIISSSS!!!!]]''
** He did it again after the Nostalgia Critic stated that he preferred the depiction of Him as more of a "loving" God in ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'' as compared to the more vengeful version of God seen in ''Film/TheTenCommandments''. At the end of video God made a little cameo to let the Critic know that he really is more the vengeful type, then hit Critic with a lightning bolt.
* During one [[Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse Global Guardians]] campaign, the Blood Red King mocked the heroes for their inability to stop him while standing over the corpses of children he had murdered. Hammer-wielding superhero Byelobog, who in reality really is the Slavic "White God" of the Sun that he is named after, promptly called down one of these to justly smite the villain. The Blood Red King never mocked Byelobog again.
* In the second episode of the web series ''Fear of Girls'', the neurotic and irritable GM Doug Douglason gets fed up with a fawning fangirl constantly interrupting him right at the start of the game. She fails the roll.
--> Doug: You are hit in the neck with a poison dart and ''die''.
--> Jasmine: Well...what are my options?
--> Doug: Leave.
* On the list of Blog/ThingsMrWelchIsNoLongerAllowedToDoInAnRPG, one item says that it's a bad idea to taunt Greek heroes with "Who's your daddy?".
* In ''Literature/FineStructure'', some scientists discover a wide variety of superscience-based technologies. As they apply them, they discover through trial and error that using them is a fast track to being killed in various lightning-related ways, such as reprogramming your teleportation machine to bury you alive. The entity responsible for this is eventually dubbed the "Imprisoning God".
* In ''LetsPlay/MarikPlaysBloodlines'' episode 6, [[TransparentCloset Marik]], [[spoiler:freaked out by a ''very'' angry [[ItMakesSenseInContext Mel Gibson]], admits that he's gay.]] Immediately after, he denies that he's gay, asking god to strike him down if he's lying. Immediately after, an elevator falls from the sky directly towards him, and Marik just barely manages to jump out of the way in time. When he realises it missed him, [[InsaneTrollLogic he claims this is proof that he is straight]].
* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' - Freeza was on the receiving end for making a BlasphemousBoast.
--> "If I'm really as evil as you say I am, then let God strike me down where I stand." (Bolt strikes, Freeza is completely unharmed.) "Ha! Nice try, jackass! Next time, give it your A-game!"
