* In ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', the people of Paradise worship the eight Creators, each of whom traditionally has their own domain. Some people worship all eight, while others chose one Creator and stick with him or her.

* Zarathan, the setting of ''Literature/TheBalancedSword'', has hundreds of gods, large and small; most people only follow one god or group of gods, though it's generally accepted that they all exist. Kyri follows Myrionar, God of Justice and Vengeance; Tobimar follows Terian, the Light in the Darkness; Poplock follows Blackwart the Great. One way gods show their power is by providing theurgical FunctionalMagic to their priests; HealingHands and LivingLieDetector abilities are common.

* 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 Creator/BrandonSanderson's ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}'', the Returned have a pantheon in T'Telir, including their ruler, The God King. Played with, because the Returned [[WasOnceAMan were human once]]. Also, in a strange twist on this Trope, all of Sanderson's books (except for Wheel of Time, because he took over for [[AuthorExistenceFailure Robert Jordan]]), despite their very different settings, exist in the same multiverse, 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 are 16 Shards total. [[spoiler: As of the end of ''Franchise/{{Mistborn}}'', Ruin and Preservation have been effectively combined into one entity, Harmony]].

* In the [=iOS=] game ''VideoGame/{{Ravenmark}} Mercenaries'', the people of the Faiths who join with the Kaysani and the Islanders to form the Varishah Federation worship a pantheon of eight gods. As mentioned in the in-game [[AllInTheManual Codex]], these gods are Deverra (the crone and wisdom), Matre (the mother and fertility), Eos (the young girl and innocence), Prisma (resilience), Serci (purity and beauty), Tersa (luck and chaos), Ayas (the gardener), and Nox (night). Interestingly, the Faithmen don't worship the gods equally. Each aspect (possibly, a clan) belongs to one of the eight temples. The Kaysan worship the sun god Kayes, so it was fairly easy to integrate them with the Faithmen by including them in the Ayas temple, since "Ayas" is likely derived from "Kayes" and shares the same position in the pantheon. Many other peoples of the world Eclisse have the same mythology, which is rooted in the world's heavenly bodies, but don't necessarily worship them as gods. The Kaysan are known for their "sunsoul" magic, allowing them to use deadly fire on the battlefield and even create eclipses on a whim. The [[TheEmpire Tellion]] people, for example, primarily revere Corvii, the sun god's prized pet raven, and instead use wind magic as a counter to sunsoul magic.

* In ''Fanfic/{{Ripples}}'', the first [[VoluntaryShapeshifting Changelings]] of [[WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}} Meridian]] are revealed to have been Roman criminals and enemies of UsefulNotes/{{Augustus}} who were traded as SuperSoldier test subjects. Their descendants continue worshiping Greek and Roman deities, though due to millennia of cultural drift, there are changes in rituals, legends and the deities' names and gender. For example, Artos of the Hunt is their equivalent to Artemis.

* The ''Franchise/DragonAge'' [[TheVerse 'verse]] has three. A decent majority of humans worship the Maker, who is pretty close to the Judeo-Christian {{God}; to a lesser extent, they also worship his [[DeityOfHumanOrigin once mortal bride]], Andraste. The ancient Tevinter Imperium had a slew of dragon-gods, who were banished from the surface and sleep beneath the earth; when darkspawn uncover them, the Blight transforms them into Archdemons and unleashes hell above ground. Elves, meanwhile, have gods and goddesses of many different functions. [[spoiler:As of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', the player has actually ''met'' two of the members of the elven pantheon.]]

The elves have their own pantheon (some information is available in the ''Origins'' codex). However the only gods that actually physically appear are the dragon-gods of the old Tevinter Imperium, which now sleep beneath the earth and become the [[BigBad archdemons]] when they come into contact with darkspawn.

* ''VideoGame/DungeonCrawl'' has a diverse pantenon by {{Roguelike}} standards - 18 gods, each imposing their own restrictions on the player and offering different rewards. There are good gods dedicated to law, healing and crusading against the evil, dark gods that focus on death and necromancy, a god of plants, a god of slime, a god of war, a god of anti-mage berserkers, a god of time and several different chaos gods - one of them behaving almost unpredictably.

* Played with in the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' series. The humans are largely worshipers of a rather silent figure known as the Maker, and to a lesser extent, his [[DeityOfHumanOrigin once mortal bride]], Andraste. Dwarves have no gods at all, but revere the Stone. Elves, however, have this trope, with gods and goddesses of many different functions.

Added DiffLines:

* As the ''VideoGames/DarkParables'' continue to be told, the games reveal an ever-increasing pantheon of goddesses; thus far, all the deities have been female. Some, like Flora (the goddess of nature's balance) and Thalassa (the sea goddess), have names. Others are only identified by their function, including the Sun Goddess, the Maiden Goddess, and the Moon Goddess. The Moon Goddess is the one who has appeared the most often to this point, and according to the tenth game, seems to have adopted the {{player character}} as a disciple without telling her.
