* In Creator/RobertAHeinlein's ''Literature/JobAComedyOfJustice'', the protagonist finds out that [[spoiler: God and Satan are actually brothers and part of an entire race of divine beings. Earth is something akin to a school project that Satan was helping his brother on. But God went on a power trip and rewrote all the rules, making his brother the evil force in his universe and demanding complete loyalty from creatures he had designed to be anything but obedient. He specifically wrote out the apocalyptic prophesy to make his brother look like a jerk and come out a hero for his own ego boost. Satan, quite flatly, tells the protagonist that he isn't going to attend the end of days to deprive his brother of the satisfaction.]] In short, Heinlein was a Gnostic.

* Often done in ''WesternAnimation/GodTheDevilAndBob''. One episode had The Devil throw a strop and remove evil from the world because God "forgot" his birthday. [[spoiler: They make up by the end.]]

* God and the Devil are on good although misunderstanding terms on the fate of humans in Creator/AnneRice's ''[[Literature/TheVampireChronicles Memnoch the Devil]]''.
** This ties into an event told to Lestat by David Talbot about him overhearing God and the Devil speaking at a cafe. After his experiences in ''Memnoch the Devil'', Lestat doesn't think that David hearing the conversation was a coincidence.

* ''VideoGame/TheGrayGarden'', similarly to the ''SuperPaperMario'' example above, has God and the Devil as partners and arguably a romantic couple.

* Near the end of ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'' it's revealed that Seraph Lamington (leader of the angels) and King Krichevskoy (the late ruler of the demons) were close friends and the entire game was one big gambit to bring about peace between their two races.

* The devil and god races in ''Manga/{{Shuffle}}'' are both are on equal ground with each other, completely without strife, and the leaders of both races are even shown as being good friends. In addition, the races have completely intermixed with the human world to the point that they can often be found going to the same schools as humans.

-->'''Constantine:''' What if I told you that God and the Devil made a wager, a kind of standing bet for the souls of all mankind? [snip] No direct contact with humans, that would be the rule. Just influence. See who would win.\\
