* This is the opinion of the wholeTranscended side in ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]''. The most prominent gods on both the angelic and demonic sides would be more than willing to sacrifice humanity and free will to get an advantage in their endless war with each other. The Transcended reject their entire rhetoric of good and evil to forge their own path and try to win the war for free will itself, but often risk becoming StupidNeutral as a result.

Despite what you may think, JesusWasWayCool doesn't neccessarily contradict this trope. It's not unheard of for Jesus to still be a good guy even if God is being portrayed as no better than the Devil.

* ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising:'' Clu (the "devil" of the setting) is indeed a evil, with a lengthy track record of genocide, torture, murder, and tyranny already. However, Flynn (the "god" in this setting) isn't all that flatteringly portrayed either; enamored with the Isos to the point of neglecting the Programs, seemingly oblivious to The Grid tearing itself apart from the strain, doesn't bother to heal Dyson's horrific facial wound ([[MistreatmentInducedBetrayal which is a major factor to Dyson deciding to throw his lot in with Clu]]), and unlike what he stated in ''Film/TronLegacy'', there is absolutely ''no'' evidence he did anything to help the Programs after the coup. At best, Satan is a Jerk and GodIsInept,

to:

* ''{{Inverted}}'' in ''WebVideo/HellsingUltimateAbridged'', where it shows that God and Satan are actually pretty nice guys. God's got a bit of a pragmatic streak to himself, but Satan shows he's pretty chill with his supposed arch-enemy and the feeling's mutual.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfGod'': JesusWasWayCool, but God mostly just made the world for laughs and is an alcoholic. Satan is awful too.

Added DiffLines:

* This is true of ''Comicbook/{{Hellblazer}}'' in general - John Constantine is a spiritual anarchist who finds both sides repulsive and stands for common humanity against any sort of supernatural interference or exploitation.

* ''Literature/LeftBehind'': Many readers who do not share the authors' ''exact'' religious views have levied this criticism. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment Let's not carry the subject further, thanks muchly]].

* This is strongly invoked in John Calvin's ''Institutio Christianae Religionis''. Whils there is no question that Calvin presents Satan as a CompleteMonster, his concepts of [[HumansAreBastards original sin]], [[YouCannotFightFate double predestination]] and [[YouCannotChangeTheFuture reprobation]] implies God is essentially an emotionally impaired sadist who created men as his toys, and who sentences people to Hell for being merely born.
