* In the ''Franchise/StarCraft'' ExpandedUniverse novel ''Speed of Darkness'', Ardo Melnikov was raised on Bountiful, a benevolent version of this trope. [[MindScrew Or was he?]] The trope appeared in other works, such as A Ghost Story, where a wrecked colony was raided for data [[spoiler: the colony wasn't dead]] and is briefly mentioned in Uprising, where the main character was raised on a planet that had a number of radical religions that fled the central government to get there, although he himself wasn't a member.

Added DiffLines:

* This is the origin for the Archduchy of Crius in ''Literature/LucifersStar'' which was founded by Prophet Stephen Allenway. Allenway had some strange views about religion (specifically that Jesus was actually a redeemed Lucifer among other quasi-Gnostic beliefs) which made him unwelcome on the PREVIOUS CultColony his followers lived on. Eventually, the Crius cultists took in a bunch of refugees with laws that made them nobility above them and turned their home planet into a FeudalFuture state.

* Averted for the most part in ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'', as most Imperial cults end up different due to centuries of isolation rather than being different at the start ([[KillItWithFire those are usually eliminated quite quickly]]). When these isolated planets rejoin the Imperium the more pragmatic Inquisitors and Ecclesiarchs just check that there's no real heresy and let them get on with life instead of purging them from orbit because the stained-glass window shows the God Emperor's eyes in the wrong color. In fact they're willing to let quite a lot go, do you want to worship the Emperor in the belief that he was a simple farmer before being the Emperor, go ahead. Do you believe that the stars are the Emperors eyes and that he is always watching you, that's fine to. Both of those are canon examples, the big point is that it is clearly the Emperor you worship and not chaos or something else.
