* In the Harry Potter fanfiction ''Fanfic/KingOfKingsRulingOverRulers'', the major religion in the Wizarding World worships the Christian-Abrahamic God, known to the wizards as Aernus. To some however, he is known as [[spoiler:Ayavan]].
**The Atlanteans take this even further, for before the destruction of their civilization, they saw Aernus not as God himself, but as the accidental fusion of the two souls (Al-Aion and Fa-Aion) of God, known to them as the Aion.

* The DC/Marvel crossover that led to Amalgam Comics portrayed the respective masters of The Living Tribunal and the Spectre as universe-sized robotic-looking humanoids. So... comic book universes are created by [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Spiral-powered ultra-mecha?]]

Shows in which God plays a major role tend not to last very long, regardless of their various good points. The main reason for this is any characterized portrayal of God is mostly likely going to follow the rules of a given religion's version of God, which often alienates people who aren't members of that religion. This, along with the increasing secularization of society in the 21st century, means that the media often sidesteps portraying God in a particular way [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement for various reasons, as those who run the media are still people with their own various beliefs and attitudes]].

God is also not always seen as the benevolent ruler of everything, hence why tropes such as GodIsEvil exist. Some of this is AlternateCharacterInterpretation from ''Literature/TheBible'' and similar works, but some of it is authors liking to play with audience expectations, and some of it is authors with a dislike of God and religion putting a little personal touch on their creation. Works which feature RageAgainstTheHeavens often feature God being a jerk, if not outright malevolent to his creation, though some would say he's more concerned with [[LawfulGood perfect justice]] than just [[GoodIsNotNice being nice]], which can cause problems with [[HumansAreFlawed an imperfect humanity]]. Taking this depiction to its furthest extent creates a variation on the CosmicHorrorStory.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Pokemon}}'' franchise has [[OlympusMons Arceus]], a [[GoldAndWhiteAreDivine gold and white]] Pokémon who apparently hatched out of a CosmicEgg and created the Pokémon universe with 1000 arms (although its form is quadrupedal). [[TrulySingleParent It also created several other legendary Pokémon]].

* AngelSanctuary. Features GodIsEvil in a really, really nasty way. God not only forced an Original Sin down on his angels ([[spoiler: when growing in their tubes they live from their own Mother, Adam Kadamon; during her captivity in Eden Alexiel also is made to Eat fruits from the Tree of Enlightenment. Which grows from Adam Kadamon's eye.]] Yuck. That the fruits look like baby heads doesn't make it any better. ) - nope, he also considers all of his angels failed experiments and wants to end the world. [[spoiler: Oh, and he's a computer program.]] Neat one, Kaori Yuki - neat one.
* ShamanKing's Great Spirit is "God" and is every spirit manifested into a giant pillar of light.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta 2}}'' it's revealed each realm within the Trinity of Realities as its own Creator-God; [[{{Heaven}} Paradiso]] has Jubileus, [[{{Hell}} Inferno]] has Queen Sheba, and the human word has Aesir[[spoiler:, who actually split his form into a good half (Loki) and an evil half (Loptr) after he sacrificed his power to give humankind free will. There's also Omni, who looks like a FusionDance of Jubileus and Queen Sheba, but is actually a completely unexplained third entity.]]
