* The Children of the Light in ''Literature/MyLifeWithTheLiars'' are a more realistic take on a cult. They live on a compound in the Arizona desert, are led by a corrupt man called Father Prophet, and raise children to believe they are doomed if they aren't formally inducted into the cult by their thirteenth birthdays.

* Yiliaster from ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' Is somewhat similar to the two mentioned above, but they don't recruit members and are hinted at being much more powerful.
* The cult revolving around "Friend" in ''TwentiethCenturyBoys''. This begins to change as the cult forms the Friendship Party of Japan and initiate a totalitarian takeover of the Japanese political system [[spoiler: and, eventually, that of the rest of the world]].

*** One of the many bits of unimplemented content in VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}} was a quest to procure fuel for their incompetently rebuilt two hundred year old space shuttle which they intended to use to return to their "Sky Father". A fully voiced epilogue for them exists in the game's code, apparently if the player character got them their fuel they would take off shortly after... and find out that they failed to make the hull airtight. Not getting them fuel would result in them concocting a fuel-analogue and blow the shuttle to hell during takeoff. Too bad it wasn't implemented because it'd be pretty damned funny.
*** Sounds like this idea influenced a quest in VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas. In this particular quest, you can choose to aid a group of ghouls in their quest to use an old rocket in order to reach space and leave behind the racist human oppressors. Their leader is more or less a cult leader, though he's much nicer and decidedly not psychotic. If you get them the fuel, they take off successfully (unless you deliberately sabotage the launch). [[spoiler:Amazingly enough, if their flight goes off without a hitch, the epilogue states that they actually survive and return to Novac in order to help defend it from Caesar's Legion.]]
