* Possibly the UrExample, [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation depending on your interpretation of their relationship]]. Literature/TheBible's {{God}} and {{Satan}} meet up once in the Bible on comparatively friendly terms. Though if you read the subtext, Satan is questioning God. Keep in mind that "Satan" is from the Hebrew Ha Satan/Shaitan meaning "the accuser" in Hebrew.
** In Judaism, the Devil is traditionally not seen as God's enemy. Instead, he works with God's permission, tempting mortals to test their faith in God (see the Book of Job), and after their deaths pointing out the sins they've committed in life that might prevent them from getting to Heaven (essentially working as a prosecutor in God's court).
*** A minority of Christians also take this view. Others merge the traditional Satan with the prosecutor, and see Satan as truly evil, yet also as the prosecutor who simply likes his job too much.
*** The traditional idea of "the devil" pulls together multiple Biblical figures that Bible scholars will tell you were not originally seen as the same entity.

* 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.]]

* Mikhail Bulgakov's treatment of Woland (the Devil) in TheMasterAndMargarita. He is not evil, just tricky and likes to tempt mortals into traps. And though he does not meet God or Jesus 'onscreen', they're neutral at the very least. Woland punishes sinners, mocks atheists and obviously supports Christian worldview, and he fulfills Jesus's request on the Master's fate.
