* The Morce from Space Blood has two evil sides with its two god-like incarnations being evil. [spoiler:It is also a bit of an inversion as the Morce is made of [[http://space-blood.thecomicseries.com/comics/20/ Evil]] as a case of Evil Is God.]]

** ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVFinal'' answers the questions ''IV'' raised about God. [[spoiler:"God" refers to two beings: YHVH, who is evil, and the Great Will, who is good. The Great Will is more powerful and subverts the trope, but YHVH is the most vile character in ''Final'' and acts as the Final Boss of the two main routes. He had His greatest servant, Satan, split into Merkabah and Lucifer, the Final Bosses of ''IV'', in order to start the war between Law and Chaos. In other words, He's worse than he was in ''II'' because, rather than trying to decisively end the war for His benefit, He started the war for some reason]].

** Ironically, the Thor villain [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Gorr the God-Butcher]] both ''believes this'', being a HollywoodAtheist with a TraumaCongaLine background, and ''is this', as he's empowered by an uber-divine god-killing weapon that he uses to take RageAgainstTheHeavens to the level of hunting down, torturing and murdering every god he can find.

* A disproportionate number of ''Videogame/BreathOfFire'' games use the world's leading god as their FinalBoss, mostly because the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil says not much else should be powerful enough to faze them by the end of the game. In some cases, like the third installment, they portray the realisation that you are going to have to fight and ''kill'' God with the weight such a goal would bring.

* ''Dishonored'' plays with this trope like pipe organ. The dominant religion of the setting is the Abbey of the Everyman, which recognizes only one deity, [[EldritchAbomination the Outsider]], but claims that it is [[GodIsEvil very evil indeed]], [[TheCorrupter directly responsible for all human sin]] and the source of all [[BlackMagic witchcraft]]. Corvo's experience with the Outsider, however, proves that while it is indeed [[TouchedByVorlons the source of all magic]] (and [[BewareTheSuperman most magic-users really are bad news]]) it's also [[AllPowerfulBystander by-and-large an observer]], and that its imposes no demands on those it empowers. Apparently, it's just chosen a lot of untrustworthy people to empower, probably because [[DrunkWithPower power corrupts]] and [[AmbitionIsEvil the world is most often changed by ambitious bastards]].

* SageFrancis has a song called "Sun vs Moon", where he sings "God's not a woman/He's a big white guy in the sky/In the desert, saw reflections of his eyes/He doesn't cry for us/But when he does, it's cause he's drunk"

** ''TheStand'' also has some elements of this near the end, [[spoiler: with many protagonists' deaths being likened to sacrifices to God [[DeusExMachina so He'll personally interfere]] with [[BigBad Randall Flagg's]] plans (in a way that kills virtually all his "followers", including children whose only fault was being with adults who went to Flagg's side).]] One character gets so fed up with this that she ''[[ClusterFBomb cusses]] out God'' when she hears that [[spoiler:her LoveInterest has a divine mandate to go on what is likely a suicide mission to stop Flagg]].
