* 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.

** [[spoiler:In a way, the Book even has a TakeThat to this trope: everybody assumes Hades would want a war to kill many people and get more subject in his Realm. When Percy actually confronts him, Hades is ''infuriated'' that people think he would want more subjects, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny seeing how he already has his hands full with the incredibly large amount of dead there already is]].]]

* Averted by Creator/PiersAnthony in ''On A Pale Horse'', in which Death/Thanatos is not only a human being tapped to fulfill a necessary duty, but is actually the protagonist and one of the nicest characters in the [[IncarnationsOfImmortality Incarnations]] series.

* In ''Film/Child'sPlay'': [[BigBad Charles Lee Ray]] invokes the power of Damballa to transfer his soul into the Good Guy doll. A less knowledgeable movie watcher might assume Damballa is a [[GodOfEvil Dark God of Voodoo]] but Damballa is actually the [[TopGod Sky God]] of the Loa, Haitian Gods and the creator of life.

* TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar is an interesting case. In the [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} Old World]], there were many Gods of Death, and foremost among them was Morr, who was a pretty nice guy all things considered and closer to Discworld's Death than anything else. Then, in the thousands of years between the setting's death in TabletopGame/WarammerTheEndTimes and the time of its successor game, the [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] JerkAss who invented necromancy in the setting, Nagash, managed to usurp all of them, and now rules every afterlife, and the Mortal Realm tied to death magic, to boot. So, an outright evil Death God took the places of several that this trope fit.
