* While it's controlled by mortals and not gods, the most famous spell in the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'', Indignation, is referred to as the "divine lightning of God" in ninety percent of its incantations, and - [[PowerupLetdown with the exception of ''Legendia'']] - it always appears as a single bolt of lightning that hits the ground and sends out an electrical blast which nukes absolutely everything.

* ''VideoGame/Diablo3'': The Crusader's Fist of the Heavens ability calls down a bolt of lightning, intended to invoke this. A similar spell was in VideoGame/Diablo2 for Paladins as well, but while it dealt lightning damage, its aesthetic was closer to HolyHandGrenade or LightEmUp than it was to ShockAndAwe, unlike 3's version, which is quite clearly and visibly ShockAndAwe.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', this is Azama's personal skill. If you attack him while he is unarmed, "Divine Retribution" activates and returns half of the damage done to the attacker.



* Being a FallenAngel {{Physical God}}dess with notoriously foul temper, Nightmare Moon from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' did this to the trio of [[PraetorianGuard Royal Guards]] attempting to [[FearlessFool rush]] and [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu arrest]] her.

* At the end of the ''Series/FamilyMatters'' episode, "It Didn't Happen One Night", Steve had been trying to take Laura to a cheerleading competition out of town, but after his car broke down, they got stuck overnight in a cheap hotel with only one bed. After the two get into a fight over who gets the bed, they both agree to share, but Steve volunteers to sleep on top of the covers so there won't be any physical contact. After the lights go out, Steve assures Laura that he's had no impure thought of her, and if he's lying may God strike him dead. Cue a very loud clap of thunder and Steve sheepishly adding, "Okay, maybe just one."

* Christian apologist Wendy Alec, in her ''{{Chronicles of Brothers}}'' series, has Lucifer repeatedly talking up a good fight against God and his estranged brothers in Heaven, challenging Him to do His worst and take his best shot - only to find God and his brother Christos are only too ready to oblige. Every time. As the series is closely based on the Bible and Christian tradition, of course Lucifer is doomed to be the CurbStomp recipient for all eternity... This makes Satan look like nothing more than a vainglorious Warner Brothers cartoon character tempting Fate.
