Added DiffLines:

* The ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'':
** The Deities do intercede in things, but prefer to do so behind the scenes most of the time.
** The Fires of Friendships were actually the founder trio's friendship calling down the Mother of All Alicorns, Fauna Luster's power to finish off the Windigos.

** During the Rumors Arc, the pantheon has to do this ''in mass'' to combat [[spoiler:Discord's endgame.]]

* Happens occasionally in ''TransformersCybertron'', with Primus lending power or providing {{Mid Season Upgrade}}s. In fact, the Autobots' main goal is to reconnect Primus' spark with his body so that he can intervene in the crisis they face (the all-consuming black hole created by his brother [[GodOfEvil Unicron's]] death throes).

* Horribly [[DiabolusExMachina inverted]] in Berserk through the Behelits, which allow someone crossing the DespairEventHorizon to summon the God-hand to give them the chance to become Apostles, or with the Crimson Behelit, to become a member of the God-hand. Seeing as God in the Beserkverse is essentially the human perception of evil and injustice it kinda makes sense that the heroes aren't saved on their bleakest day but instead the less savoury characters are given the power to ruin everyone else's day too.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'': The Knights of the Cross have this function (or act on His behalf) by always appearing precisely when they are needed. In fact, GenreSavvy Harry Dresden relies on this at one key point, successfully, when [[spoiler:Molly]] is in danger.

In fact, GenreSavvy Harry Dresden relies on this at one key point, successfully, when [[spoiler:Molly]] is in danger. The Knights themselves rely on events falling their way in order to accomplish their missions; when Michael needs to help Dresden but there's no one to watch his kids, his friend in the priesthood just happens to have his car break down outside Michael's house.

* In ''Film/PulpFiction'', hitmen Jules and Vincent are caught off guard by a man with a HandCannon, who empties all six shots at them without hitting them once. Jules is convinced that this is Divine Intervention, and it inspires him to give up his life as a hitman and [[WalkingTheEarth walk the earth]]. Vincent is less than convinced.

* In the book ''The God Delusion'', Creator/RichardDawkins discusses that, after being shot, the Pope attributed his survival to intervention by Our Lady of Fatima, claiming that "a maternal hand guided the bullet." Dawkins cannot help wondering why she didn't guide it to miss him altogether.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', Luffy is about to have his head chopped off by Buggy in Logue Town, on the very same platform that Gold Roger was executed on. Just before the blade Buggy's using can connect, the entire platform gets struck by lightning. Sanji wonders aloud if there was anything divine about what happened. It's heavily implied that it was either this trope, considering how afterwards everything was in favor for the crew's escape or pure coincidence. It is also implied that it wasn't natural lightning that saved Luffy in the first place. What occurred at Logue Town is still very vague, even though it was over 600 chapters ago.
** Hawkins announces that no matter what situation Luffy is put in he will always have a chance, no matter how small, of surviving, and there is some implication that this is to do with "The Will of D". Not that anyone knows what the hell that is

* [[Series/TheLegendOfWilliamTell Kalem]] intervenes several times to save Will and his friends. Generally, she follows this with a lecture about how she can't spend all her time saving him.
