* The plot of the ''Film/{{Clash of the Titans|2010}}'' remake revolves around Perseus fighting against Hades to get his love back, which has nothing to do with the original myth or [[TheyJustDidntCare movie]]. To be fair, Hades isn't the only god with a {{Jerkass}} streak in the film, nor was he attempting to summon a "[[HijackedByJesus hell on earth]]" as the [[NeverTrustATrailer trailers suggested]]. Plus in the sequel [[spoiler:he ends up doing a HeelFaceTurn]].

** This is made stranger by the fact that Anubis aided the hero's in the first first film by [[spoiler:making Imhotep mortal]] when summoned. He actually does this again during ''The Mummy Returns'' when he evens the playing field for the final showdown. It seems the film makers were aware of his actual role in mythology, alluded to it and then [[TheyJustDidntCare ignored it]] when it suited the plot.

* ''VideoGame/KidIcarus'' has Pluton, an invincible and incredibly annoying ogre thief, whose name is the original Greek spelling for Pluto (Ploutōn). The Grim Reaper (shortened to Reaper) and the God of Revenge are also enemies. The first ''may'' come from Pluto's other portfolio, being the god of wealth. This doesn't make the game's [[TheyJustDidntCare butchering of the rest of Greek mythology]] any more sensible, though.

Added DiffLines:

* Mostly subverted with [[UsefulNotes/IncanMythology Supay]]-the reason the Conquistadores though he was the Incan Devil was due to the fact that he was portrayed as genuinely greedy and vicious, causing death in the world as repayment for taking his property, the ore of the Earth, and known for also actually making a DealWithTheDevil (a much shorter life in return for that life being of fantastic wealth and success, since he will inevitably get his money back when the other party dies). Mostly, as he wasn't portrayed as evil so much as [[NobleDemon ruthlessly fair]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'', the eventual final antagonist turned out to be the mythological Izanami... who ends up playing the part of GenericDoomsdayVillain who wants to create a World of Death because that's what she does (though the future may change on that trope). At least that's what the Japanese version does, but in the English version and carrying over to ''Central Fiction'', they slapped the name Hades in front of her, turning her name into 'Hades Izanami', making it a double whammy for both myths.

** They both also soften as the series goes on. Ares begins ''Hercules'' as a borderline EldritchAbomination and ends ''Xena'' a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, and you'll forget Aphrodite could even be borderline villainous by the end (the worst thing she did was trying to break up a marriage that would have ended a war because the alliance would mean a temple or two of hers got demolished.

** Although it wasn't a very bad thing because Osiris himself was bad, it was a very bad thing bercause calling him up would bring the Underworld into the real world.

Added DiffLines:

* Averted with Selene in ''TabletopGame/BlueRose''. As the primordial deity of winter, death and secrets, she's definitely not ''cuddly'' by any means, but she is still seen as a natural and vital part of the universe. It may help that her reason for forcing mortals to go through the cycle of death and rebirth is to ultimately bring them to enlightenment and restore them to their original state as immortal spiritual beings: she's a goddess of death who's actively working at making herself redundant.

** Averted with Osiris, who is the god of the dead but portrayed both in mythology and most modern depictions as a good guy, albeit [[GoodIsImpotent not a very active or dynamic one.]]

* In-Universe in ''VisualNovel/KamigamiNoAsobi'' - the spirits of the dead curse Hades because they blame him for their suffering in the underworld, and misfortune follows him everywhere he goes. Played straight in some sense, but in a positive(-ish?), AllGirlsWantBadBoys sort of way (since he ''is'' an option in the [[HaremGenre harem]]).

Named after the [[Myth/GreekMythology Greek God of the Underworld, Hades]], who is often a victim of this in modern times.

* Subverted in the TV series ''ClassOfTheTitans''. While Hades is kind of... swishy (and purple-skinned), he's actually a very friendly guy. He's unfailingly pleasant to the heroes, he loves his dog Cerberus, and he and Persephone absolutely adore one another.

* Averted in the Sunbow ''GIJoe'' episode "The Gods Below". Osiris, the Egyptian God of Death, and the other Egyptian gods that appear, for the most part, are portrayed as good or at least neutral. The only exception is Set who's kind of already an evil god in Egyptian mythology, [[DependingOnTheWriter depending on which period of Egyptian history any given myth comes from.]]
* Played straight in ''MummiesAlive'', in which Anubis is a dim-witted villain who works alongside Set. In mythology, Set disowned him, since Anubis chose to side with Horus and helped Isis mummify Osiris and restore him.
* The ''WatershipDown'' animated series, unlike the source material, pulls this with the Black Rabbit of Inle. When he starts appearing in season three, he glows red and vanishes in a burst of flames.
