* Both exaggerated and downplayed in {{ComicBook/TheMightyThor}} with The Gods Butcher issues. Gods aren't really the true creators of the universe, but they are cosmically powerful entities, devoted to good, evil, or their own interest. Gorr the Gods Butcher dedicates himself to tracking and [[KillEmAll torturing to death every one of them]] [[spoiler: and at the end of the first book, he has nearly achieved his goal : only an old, tired Thor is left alive. Because Gorr wants to keep him alive for the end.]]

** 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.

After he convinced the et'Ada (Aedra) who would become the Aedra to create Mundus (the mortal realm,) realm), sacrificing much of their divine power (including their CompleteImmortality) in the process, he was killed "killed" and his "divine center" (heart) removed.

** The et'Ada Trinimac was supposedly killed by one of the Padomaic et'Ada Boethiah, the Daedric Prince of Plots, who was angered by the "lies" Trinimac made of Lorkahn, the et'Ada who's plan made the world. Boethiah then proceeded to ''eat'' Trinimac, take his form, and sowed chaos into Trinimac's cult. What happened next to Trinimac has two different legends to it: in the first Trinimac was tortured in Boethiah's belly before she cast him out into a plane of chocking ash (which seems to be based in Malacath's Plane of Oblivion, The Ashpit) while in the second legend Boethiah excretion became Malacath and Trinimac's followers smeared it onto themselves to turn into the Orsimer, or Orcs, and the Chimer, the Dunmer before the Daedric Prince Azura punished them. Malacath has stated in the ''Lord of Souls'' book that the legends of Boethiah and Trinimac are far too "literal-minded" which at least implies that there is some truth to the stories.

He enslaved the [[{{Hell}} Inferni]] citizens to work on these portals.

*''Videogame/SaltAndSanctuary'' : it's heavily implied that [[spoiler: the Nameless God killed every other god in the world by imprisoning them, then exploiting GodsNeedPrayerBadly by answering every prayer for them until they starved. When you find [[BonusBoss The Three]], they are but clumbsy undead, shadows of thier former selves. No wonder the area they're found in is named The crypt of dead gods.]]
** [[spoiler: And for good measure, you get to kill the Nameless God, as it's the final boss.]]
