* Arceus can be seen as this according to how you view its status as creator of the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' universe, which is helped by its descriptions in the games as well as in other parts of the franchise.

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, others are authors liking to play with audience expectations, and some of it is authors who dislike God and religion [[WriterOnBoard 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.

* 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]].
