* ''Film/TheVoormanProblem'': Voorman, a crazed prison inmate interviewed by psychiatrist Dr. Williams, turns out to actually be God. He tells Williams that wars amuse him. At the end he switches places with Williams, leaving to have sex with Williams's wife while Williams is locked in prison. Oh, and he literally wipes Belgium off the map.

* In a "not quite" case, the ''Manga/OnePiece'' crew travels to another society in the sky and is forced to battle a lightning-flinging man identifying himself as god; his subjects even have (seemingly nonfunctional) wings! Turns out in this society "God" is just the title given to their ruler...
** While that 'god' had the power level to back it up, later Celestial Dragons, who see themselves as living gods really live up to this trope. Thankfully they are much more punchable, if you can avoid the consequences.

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* The White Queen in ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign''. She's seen as all-powerful and benevolent, but only the former is true. She's actually an incredible {{Yandere}} for Kyousuke, the main character, and doesn't care for anyone else. Unlike other examples of this trope, she doesn't hate humanity... but she's willing to do anything to make Kyousuke love her again, including endangering the entire world, so there's effectively no difference.

* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI'' and ''[[VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiII II]]'' both use this trope faithfully; YHVH is a complete and utter megalomaniac who demands full respect and worship from man, and if they don't provide such, His wrath follows quickly. In many games, the Law path that YHVH patrons results in a variant of the WorldOfSilence, where all creation does nothing except ceaselessly chant prayers to Him for all eternity. Lucifer is more on our side, but he's still willing to do some horrible things to "help" us. [[WordOfGod Atlus]] has stated that this all stems from something terribly wrong at the very core of reality. They've also claimed that they're moving away from this trope to avoid offending heavily-Christian countries now that they have a wider audience. [[spoiler:By "move away", they apparently mean "be a touch more subtle about it".]]

** ''Dystheism'' ("ungodly") is the belief that God is not wholly good, and possibly (though not necessarily) evil. It differs from maltheism in that it draws no conclusions about whether said God is worthy of worship - a maltheist is always a dystheist but a dystheist is not always a maltheist. Many ancient religions were dystheistic in nature-Hellenistic and Norse mythology, with jealous Gods who interfere in mortal affairs (and mortal bedrooms) but who still demanded respect and sacrifice being the best-known examples. Since WorldWarTwo, more specifically the Holocaust, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holocaust_theology some Jewish theologians]] have proposed a dystheistic approach to God. Compare UsefulNotes/{{Deism}}.

* The Architect in ''Film/TheMatrixReloaded'' and ''Film/TheMatrixRevolutions'': Not only is he named "The Architect" (the name that Freemasons use for God), he sits in a throne, watching everything that happens in his realm and is an old man with a white beard and a deep voice. Clearly an allusion. He's also incapable of empathy (he creates the program Oracle for that) and feels no love at all for the humans. He might not be the creator of the humans or the universe outside the Matrix, but is a very similar concept of God that certain religions have like the Demiurge in Gnosticism or the role of Brahma in Buddhism (Buddhist and Gnostic themes are prevalent in the films).

His sole purpose is to facilitate the proper functioning of the Matrix by manipulating the Resistance indirectly.

* "Remnant (March of the Undead IV)" by MachinaeSupremacy uses a ZombieApocalypse as a metaphor to criticize religious followers who insist that God is benevolent despite doing nothing to keep horrible things from happening. The song even implies that God enjoys watching the destruction he causes through inaction.
