* Though the tenets of the religion in ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' aren't gone into much (or at all), the architecture and appearance of the various figures makes the similarity rather obvious.

Interestingly, the religion in general (especially in ''VideoGame/DiabloII'') takes more from Islam than Christianity, with its pope being known as the Que-Hegan that leads a High Council that, during the time of Diablo II, have been completely corrupted by Mephisto.

* ''LuminousArc'' is pretty much one big Church of the Crystal Dragon Jesus, complete with a very cliche (and entirely expected) "twist" (read anything by Lovecraft and you'll understand).

** there is also a rather tongue-in-cheek practice of offering sacrifice to Offler in the form of frying sausages (this is ALSO a very English joke, referring to the traditional Punch and Judy show, in which a crocodile steals a string of sausages). The priests fry the sausages, by which the “essence of sausagidity” ascends to Offler; this achieved, they EAT the sausages, claiming that the “empty husks... turn to ashes in their mouths”.

* The Brazilian soap opera ''Series/DeusSalveORei'', a monotheistic religion analogous to Christianity is practiced by the realms of Montemor and Artena. Their deity is literally called God, but there are no crosses to be seen anywhere. The clergy does look like Catholic and Orthodox priests.

* As noted, ''BreathOfFire'' as a series has played with this trope--both with the straight CrystalDragonJesus example and a Crystal Dragon ''Buddha'' variant.

* The ''IronGrip'' series has Trithinism, worshipped primarily by the Fahrong nation (who even made it their official state religion). Though not much is shown of its theological nature, its history seems to mirror the developments of both [[http://www.irongrip.net/index.php?view=3963 Christianity and Islam]] in several ways. There is also some mention of a concept similar to the belief in reincarnation. Trithinite worshippers are usually portrayed (at least in ExpandedUniverse fluff) as either RapePillageAndBurn ChurchMilitant fanatics or more humble and peaceful missionaries spreading the faith by word, charity and medical treatment of the needy. GreyAndGrayMorality indeed...In addition, some levels of the second game feature Trithinite churches with paintings and small idols of the religion's One God, Sa.
