* In the same vein as the ''D&D'' example, ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'''s pantheon is the Greek gods, the Chinese Zodiac animals, the Norse gods, and the Mesopotamian gods (but the Greek gods got killed by the Snarl before the world began). There are also completely fictional deities in the setting, such as the Elven gods and the Dark One, evil god of the goblins. And Banjo the Clown, God of Puppets, created by Elan early on in the strip. Banjo was rejected by the followers of the Northern Gods when he tried to join their pantheon (Odin and Thor were on-board though; they like puppets) but has already started spawning his own pantheon which includes the heretical cult of [[CthulhuMythos Banjulhu]] and Banjo's rival and brother Giggles, the god of slapstick. With conflicts between different sects settled by the traditional pie-eating contest.

* All of Sanderson's books in TheCosmere, despite their very different settings, exist on different planets in the same star cluster, with the [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Shards of Adonalasium]] driving each [[MagicAIsMagicA unique magic system]]. Named Shards include Ruin and Preservation (''Franchise/{{Mistborn}}''), Endowment (''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}''), and Honor, Cultivation, and Odium (''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''). At least two Shards have been present on the world of ''Literature/{{Elantris}}'' as well, confirmed by Sanderson to have been Devotion and Dominion, but [[spoiler: they're dead now, and their power has been dispersed]]. WordOfGod is that there were 16 Shards total. [[spoiler: As of the end of ''Literature/{{MistbornTheOriginalTrilogy}}'', Ruin and Preservation have been effectively combined into one entity, Harmony.]]

*In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', C'hou has switched to the rule of the Pyar gods, a triumvirate of a father and his two adult children. They are very benevolent and were trying to turn the world into a paradise for both the native skahs warriors and the emigrant G'heddi'onian civilians, but accidentally let a great evil in and became terribly enfeebled as they battled it. They're now trapped in the substance of the crumbling White Tower and will die in a year if the great evil in the Black Tower isn't defeated.

* [[Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl The Monster Girl Encyclopedia]] mention few deities in some of CuteMonsterGirl entries. So far, we have {{God}} who seems to based on Judeo-Christian-Islamic one, [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Poseidon]] who governs the ocean. And the [[{{Satan}} Fallen God]] who resides in Pandemonium. The profile of the Cyclops suggest that there are more, with Cyclopes themselves being gods until other deities cursed them to become monsters.

* Played with in ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}''. While the Titans fulfill the role of a fantasy pantheon in the series, even having their own Satan analog with Sargerous, Blizzard stresses over and over that they are '''not''' gods, and despite their name neither are the [[EldritchAbomination Old Gods]]. So far there has only been one entity in lore that is officially a deity, the Night Elf goddess Elune.

* CantrII: All religions are created by the players of the game. Some of them worship the creator of the game. One of the most notorious ones, is a simple copy paste of the [[Main.EarthsChildren Donii religion]], which cheerfully ignores the fact that [[HideYourChildren everyone spawns at 20]], sex doesn't create children, there are no volcanoes, nor caves. But hey, since when did that stop someone waving their FetishFuel around? Caveman rumpy ahoy!

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Ironclaw}}'' Lutarists believe in a pantheon centered around the fertility goddess Lutara and an indeterminate number of lesser deities such as Brukes the Bloody-Tusked (war), Daga (farming), Lyrisica (music, poetry), and Femort (death, winter and sadness). However Lutarism is a minority faith in Calebria and mostly confined to House Doloreaux's lands, the other three major houses all follow the monotheistic Church of S'Allumer and the tribes outside the kingdom follow animistic druids.

** ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' is more polytheistic than most implementations. Even though most characters select a particular patron deity (and divine spellcasters are required to since the gods are the only source of magic in the Realms), they'll still typically pray to others for help in corresponding endeavors: for example, nearly every combatant on the continent offers a prayer to the WarGod Tempus before battle regardless of other considerations. (ExpandedUniverse authors vary in whether they pay attention to it, but this is how it's presented in the rulebooks.)

* Religion in ''Literature/TheAscendantKingdomsSaga'' goes a step further than the usual small number of gods into full-on polytheistic paganism. The top three gods are the ambi-gendered creator deity Charrot and his/her consorts Torven (male) and Esthrane (female), but below them are hundreds upon hundreds of minor location deities and household gods. One of the few of these minor gods that is named is the capricious ocean god Yadin. There are atheists in the world, but the vampire ghost the Wraith Lord verifies that the gods are ''very'' real: he became a ghost due to Esthrane taking pity on him when he traded his life to save King Hougen hundreds of years earlier and cheated TheGrimReaper of her due.
