Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheAlmightyJohnsons'', a show about Norse gods secretly living in New Zealand, features several examples. Relationships between gods and goddesses tend to be volatile, though, so many of the pairings are brief.
** The main premise of the story is that Axl (Odin) is searching for his Frigg, so that they can become one. And, not incidentally, restore the gods to their former power.
** Anders (Bragi) is a notorious womanizer until he meets Helen, who is Idun, his destined wife. But things aren't destined to end well for her.
** Ty (who is Hod, god of cold and dark) marries Eva (Hel, goddess of the underworld). It doesn't end well either.
** Colin (Loki) hooks up with Michele (Sjöfn, a minor goddess with a major chip on her shoulder about it) for a while, till she gets sick of his antics and says goodbye with a [[GroinAttack knee to the groin]].
** Mike (Ullr), whose mortal wife has left him, and Michele, who has just dumped Colin, end up forming one of the more stable god couples in the show. Possibly because there's no destiny involved--they just like each other.
** Olaf (Baldr, god of rebirth) and Ingrid (Snotra, goddess of wisdom) seem to be heading towards a loose, stoner version of a relationship, but it doesn't work out, and Olaf ends up in an equally loose relationship with Stacey (Fulla, handmaiden of Frigg).

* Promotional materials for ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion'' depict [[spoiler:Demon!]]Homura and [[spoiler:Goddess!]]Madoka as this. [[TrailersAlwaysLie The truth is more...complicated]], as neither knows what the other is and the [[StoryBreakerPower plot]] [[RuleOfDrama requires]] that they don't hold power simultaneously.

* ''VideoGame/MuramasaTheDemonBlade'' gives the TinyGuyHugeGirl couple of [[BlowYouAway Fuujin]] and [[ShockAndAwe Raijin]]. Raijin is a [[AmazonianBeauty visibly muscular woman]] (seriously, she'd put any and all female bodybuilders to shame) about 3.5 times larger than the player [[{{Stripperiffic}} with little in terms of clothing]], a large chest, and [[HartmanHips monstrous thighs]] (think "tree trunk-sized") that'd make [[StreetFighter Chun-Li]] look like a twig. She's still [[CuteMonsterGirl very beautiful]], especially when her [[{{Tsundere}} "dere" side finally comes to the surface]]. Fuujin, [[RedOniBlueOni by contrast]], is a very mellow, very adorable little imp, usually calming down the thunder goddess in her less rational moments. He also states ([[{{Bowdlerise}} in the original Japanese version]] and [[PolishedPort in the Aksys retranslation]]) that he loves her fat ass.
* ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'': It's implied that once upon a time, Cosmos and Chaos, despite [[OrderVersusChaos representing inherently opposite forces of nature]], [[BeastAndBeauty were lovers and peacefully ruled over the world together.]] [[spoiler:And then came Garland, Chaos' ''own past self'', who convinced Chaos to wage war against his significant other.]] Chaos himself does not remember this until he regains his memories near endgame. [[spoiler:Considering that he just ''killed'' Cosmos moments earlier, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Chaos is mortified]]]]. And to twist the knife further, if you obtain all of the Cosmos and Chaos reports, you find out that [[spoiler:Cosmos is more or less Garland/Chaos' ''[[ParentalIncest adoptive mother]]''. [[OedipusComplex Ew.]] Since they have no blood relations and gods are ageless, they may as well be adoptive siblings or even have no familial ties at all.]]
* ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'' has Queen Jaydes, ruler of the lower part of the afterlife, [[TheUnderworld The Underwhere]], [[spoiler: married to King Grambi, ruler of the upper part of the afterlife, [[FluffyCloudHeaven The Overthere.]]]] They even have a child, [[spoiler: Luvbi, though she [[MacGuffinTurnedHuman isn't exactly their biological daughter.]]]]

* In Creator/AAPessimal's ''{{Discworld}}'' fic, Anoia (Goddess Of Things That Get Stuck In Drawers) has forged an alliance with Cephut, the resourceful God of Cutlery, on the grounds that somebody has to manufacture the things that get stuck in kitchen drawers (Cephut) and if somebody else contrives for them to stick in there (Anoia) this generates an upward synergetic circle of benefit to both deities. Everybody wins.

*** Zeus and [[PrettyBoy Gany]][[EvenTheGuysWantHim mede]] were often given offerings together by the Greeks. The relationship had more staying power than most of Zeus' innumerable other conquests, given Ganymede's ascension to godhood, his set place in Olympus and his evading a horrific end by [[ClingyJealousGirl Hera]], so it's safe to say that they count.
*** Another of Zeus' mortal lovers who was achieved godhood was Semele; here however it was largely because of the intervention of her son Dionysus who went down to Hades to bring her back. As an immortal her name became Thyone. Semele's sister Ino, who had acted as Dionysus' nurse, also became a goddess under the name Leucothea.
