This is going a step beyond HaveYouSeenMyGod; they've called off the search and alerted the [[{{Jesus}} next of kin]]. The CouncilOfAngels is now running around trying to figure out who's in charge.

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', much of the plot revolves around the three Dunmeri [[PhysicalGod Physical Gods]] known as the Tribunal and their arch-enemy, [[BigBad Dagoth Ur]]. Each used blasphemous [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]] tools to tap into the powers of the aforementioned Heart of Lorkhan, gaining godhood as a result. [[spoiler: By the end of the game's main quest and its first expansion, three of the four are dead, with the fourth reduced to a [[BroughtDownToBadass de-powered]] SemiDivine shell of his former power]]. [[note]]Though if you really want to get into the metaphysics, he claims to have achieved "CHIM," essentially omnipotence with [[BreakingTheFourthWall fourth wall breaking]] powers that puts him far beyond the power of anything else in the setting, save for the player and developers themselves.[[/note]]

* The majority of the Aedra of ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' universe invested so much of their essence into the Mundus that they became mortal and died. Earthbones, the laws of reality which bind mortals, are magical restraints created from their deaths. In all, only eight remain alive and they're halfway to dead themselves.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'':
** In the backstory, the creator god Lorkhan ([[IHaveManyNames aka Shor, Shezzar, Sep, Lorkhaj...]]) Though there are many different creation stories, his inclusion is one of the few consistent elements. He is generally better regarded by the races of men than by the elven races, who view him as a [[TricksterGod trickster]]. (The Altmer have a particular dislike for him.) After he convinced the et'Ada (Aedra) to create Mundus (the mortal realm,) he was killed and his "divine center" (heart) removed. It was tied to an arrow and launched across Tamriel by Auri-El, one of those et'Ada, where it landed in modern day Morrowind and formed Red Mountain. The moons are said to be his rotting corpse and his spirit was forced to wander Mundus, occasionally taking form as a "Shezzarine," great champions of mankind.

** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' all of the gods of the entire multiverse in Future Trunks's timeline are dead. Most of them were killed by Goku Black and Zamasu, but the Supreme Kai of Universe 7 (that is, the main universe of the setting) was shown in the manga to have been killed by Dabura when he and Trunks stopped Buu from being released.

Added DiffLines:

* Happened recursively in ''Webcomic/KillSixBillionDemons''. The Holy Suicide of [[AC:Yisun]] gave birth to the two gods of Existence and Non-Existence, who destroyed themselves to create the pantheon of 777 777 gods, each of whom created a universe through self-annihilation. That doesn't stop people from worshiping them, or from [[AC:Yisun]], gods, and mortals interacting in the lore. However, a fundamental tenet of the religion is to embrace paradox.

Note that this trope does not directly refer to [[TropeCodifier Nietzsche's]] pronouncement, which, in [[SeriousBusiness one of the most serious debates in the academic world]], implies that God and all God represents didn't exist to begin with. [[note]]The "death of God" according to Nietzsche is [[OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions a crisis of faith caused by scientific progress]]: Modern people began to increasingly rely on the scientific method and along the way realized that empirical science cannot prove the existence of what was assumed to be immutable truth: universal morals, a definite meaning in life and any sort of afterlife. In short, a more accurate summary of Nietzsche's argument would be "Philosophy is dead, morality never existed and science has denounced those as bullshit", but that wouldn't quite manage to convey the poetic severity of the message and [[RomanticismVersusEnlightenment his tragic view on the Enlightenment's]] [[GoMadFromTheRevelation pursuit for scientific revelations]].[[/note]]
