* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' has one, the "Convention", where several gods were brought together by one in particular who wanted to try something different. Depending on a mortal's opinion on this one particular god, he is either Lorkhan, the Doom Drum, who tricked the other gods into weakening or sacrificing themselves to create the Mundus (world of mortals), and was punished with his own death and binding to the world, or he is Shor/Shezarr, someone who wished to break everyone out out of the boring pre-creation state by taking a necessary but arduous interim step in creating mortality and was killed for it (and planned for this, with his failure being a cautionary tale of what ''not'' to do to achieve his goal). Elven religions tend to be more of the former, while religions of the races of men tend to be more the latter.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' has one, two covering different events - the "Convention", where several gods were brought together by creation of "creation" itself and then then the creation of Mundus, the mortal plane. To note:[[note]]It should be noted that many of the below deities have different names, traits, and motivations depending on the religious tradition. Their most commonly recognized names and stories are used below for the sake of brevity.[[/note]]
** [[GodOfGods Anu]] and [[TheAntiGod Padomay]] are the [[AnthropomorphicPersonification anthropomorphized]] primordial forces of [[OrderVersusChaos "stasis/order/light" and "change/chaos/darkness"]], respectively. Their interplay in the great "Void" led to Nir, "creation". Nir loved Anu, [[DrivenByEnvy which Padomay hated]]. Padomay killed Nir and the 12 worlds she gave birth to. Anu wounded Padomay, presuming him dead. Anu salvaged the pieces of the 12 world to create
one in particular world: Nirn. Padomay returned and wounded Anu, seeking to destroy Nirn. Anu then [[TakingYouWithMe pulled Padomay and himself outside of time]], ending Padomay's threat to creation "forever". From the intermingling of their spilled blood came the "et'Ada", or "original spirits", who wanted would go on to try something different. become either the Aedra or the Daedra depending on their actions during the creation of Mundus. (Some myths state that the Aedra come from the mixed blood of Anu and Padomay, while the Daedra come purely from the blood of Padomay).
** One of these spirits, said to have been "begat" by Padomay, was Lorkhan (aka [[IHaveManyNames Shor, Shezarr, Sep, etc.]]).
Depending on a mortal's opinion on this one particular god, he is either Lorkhan, the Doom Drum, who tricked version of the myth, he convinced/tricked some of the other gods et'Ada into weakening or sacrificing themselves to helping him create the Mundus (world mortal plane, known as Mundus. (The races of mortals), and [[OurElvesAreBetter Mer, or Elves]], who believe they descend from the Aedra, generally believe this was punished with his own death and binding to a cruel trick that robbed their ancestors of their pre-creation divinity while the world, or he is Shor/Shezarr, someone who wished to break everyone out races of Men believe it was a good thing which broke the spirits out of the a state of boring pre-creation stasis.) Those et'Ada who sacrificed large parts of their being to create Mundus became known as the Aedra ("Our Ancestors" in the ClassicalTongue of Aldmeris), while those that did not participate became the Daedra ("Not Our Ancestors"). For his treachery, the Aedra [[GodIsDead "killed" Lorkhan]] and tore out his "divine center" (heart), which they cast down into the mortal world he helped to create. (Some tellings, particularly those of Men, state by taking a necessary but arduous interim step in creating mortality and that this was killed for it (and planned for this, part of Lorkhan's plan all the long, with his failure being a cautionary tale of what ''not'' to do to achieve his goal). Elven religions tend to be more of the former, while religions of the races of men tend to be more the latter.spirit then "impregnating" Nirn.)

* The ceiling frescoes of the Art/SistineChapel detail how {{God}} separated light from darkness, set the stars in the sky, and created the first humans, Adam and Eve. All this follows the creation myth described in the first chapters of the Literature/BookOfGenesis.

* ''BrutalLegend'', in keeping with it's general theme, gives us the most metal creation myth ever. In the beginning, the world was dark, and populated by a race of incredibly ugly demons known only as the First Ones. Then one day Ormagöden, The Great Firebeast arose, and began careening across the sky. The First Ones hated Ormagöden, because his fire lit up the world and exposed their ugliness, so they tried to drown The Great Firebeast and quench his flames with mud. Rather than die that way, Ormagöden let out a massive roar and tore his body to shreds to keep it from the First Ones, granting the world the elements of Metal, Blood, Fire and Noise. His metal flesh sank into the earth, seeding it with veins of ore. His blood poured out and filled the seas. His burning heart was flung into the sky, and became the sun. Finally, whenever truly badass music is played or a huge engine revved, you are hearing the echo of the death-roar of Ormagöden, and reminded of how he sacrificed himself to create the world as we know it.

* Volume 4 of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' tells one of Remnant's creation myths: the Tale of the Two Brothers. [[spoiler:Two brother gods, one of Light and one of Dark, created the world but were opposed to each other. Whatever Light made, Dark tried to destroy. Dark is also credited with being the creator of the Grimm. Eventually, however, they put aside their differences and together created something that had the potential to be either Light or Dark based on its own choice: humanity. They then left four powerful "Relics" representing the metaphysical gifts they'd left humanity, and departed for realms unknown. Whether the story is entirely true or not, the Relics themselves seem to be real, and are the things the BigBad is after.]]
