* In ''TabletopGame/[[{{Warhammer}} Warhammer Fantasy]]'' the two primary religions in The Empire are the Cult of Sigmar and the Cult of Ulric. Sigmarites worship Sigmar the founder of the Empire who ascended to godhood, while the the latter worships Ulric the god of winter. The two are more benign examples as they are dedicated in protecting the Empire, but the two groups often have a tug of war for power and influence over the Empires rule.

* The same applies in ''RuneQuest'', older by about 25 years; practically every resident of Glorantha joins a "cult" of one of the hundreds or thousands of gods, and gains some magic from that god. Even the state religion of the Lunar Empire is technically a "cult".
