* The Saint Church of Ancient Belka in ''Franschise/LyricalNanoha'' even has Jesus and ShroudOfTurin analogues. Some of the reformed S3 villains end up joining the Church. Nanoha adopts a clone of their Jesus figure (Vivio) as her daughter. For their part, the Saint Church officially considers Vivio a "descendant of the Saint King", rather than a reincarnation or a Second Coming, and do not worship her.

** And some of the villains from S3 wind up TakingTheVeil within it.

Any fictional religion, such as those found in a MedievalEuropeanFantasy, which possesses attributes stereotypically associated with Christianity ([[ChristianityIsCatholic especially Roman Catholicism]]) -- such as priestly vestments, nuns and their habits, confessionals, the designs of houses of worship, and crosses -- but which centers on a deity other than the Christian God, like an animistic spirit or pagan-flavored god. Often there will be a {{God}} analog and/or a {{Satan}} analog but not a Jesus one, although this is somewhat excusable as [[GodInHumanForm Jesus himself is also God]] due to the concept of the Trinity. This is often too [[MindScrew confusing for your average Christian to understand]], let alone someone non-Christian or non-religious -- even many [[UpToEleven priests can't completely grasp it]].

* While there's no particular CrystalDragonJesus in [[RuneQuest Glorantha]], they do use the cross as a holy symbol. However, it's the Rune of Death (which 'coincidentally' terrifies the undead), modelled after the Sword of Humakt, [[TheGrimReaper the god of death]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'' has the Abbey of the Everyman. It has no deity, and indeed seems to be centered around a humanist ''opposition'' to the supernatural. It has a Satan analogue (the Outsider), a list of commandments for its worshipers to follow (the Seven Strictures), its own form of Inquisition, and burns witches and heretics at the stake.

** The Seven Strictures and the text that accompany them seem to be based on biblical passages, especially [[https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs+6:16-19 Proverbs 6:16-19]], and/or the SevenDeadlySins. They are the Wandering Gaze, Lying Tongue, Restless Hands, Roving Feet, Rampant Hunger, Wanton Flesh, and the Errant Mind.

Added DiffLines:

*** Talos in particular bears consideration: Talos worshippers place great emphasis on the fact that he [[WasOnceAMan was a man]] before he ascended as a Divine. While this emphasis in-universe is likely racial in nature, one of the core concepts of Christianity is 'hypostatic union': Jesus Christ is at once both wholly human and wholly divine.

*** The Chantry's messiah figure Andraste mixes elements of {{Jesus}}, UsefulNotes/{{Muhammad}}, and UsefulNotes/JoanOfArc. She was chosen by [[LowestCosmicDenominator The Maker]] rather late in life to be his prophetess (Mohammed) for being exceptionally devout and a true believer (Mary, Mohammed, Joan). She then unified the factions of dissenters against the religious establishment and created an army which she led on a highly successful [[UsefulNotes/TheCrusades Exalted March]] (Mohammed, Joan). She was later betrayed by some of her closest generals and advisers (Jesus) and burnt at the stake (Jesus, Joan). However, she was never regarded as a child of the Maker, nor was she ever resurrected.

* Joe, a mysterious Tuskagee pilot, in ''{{ComicBook/Ghostopolis}}''
* There's also a lot of comparisons between {{Superman}} and Jesus Christ. Many authors intentionally try to make Kal-El fit this trope.
