** In 40k, there are the C'Tan Star-Gods, [[TimeAbyss as old as the universe itself and far older than the Chaos Gods]]. Originally diffuse {{Energy Being}}s the size of solar systems, they were given bodies of living metal by a mortal race in need of allies, which the CíTan promptly betrayed and turned into the Necrons, a race of robotic SlaveMooks without free will. They used to eat stars, but they later found [[YourSoulIsMine mortal souls]] much more to their liking, and world after world was sacrificed to their hunger. Individual CíTan were near as unpleasant as the Chaos Gods: the Nightbringer {{Mind Rape}}d organic life into fearing death [[EmotionEater to feed on their terror and despair]]; the Void Dragon, a being of oblivion and utter destruction, had absolute control over technology and tried to sever the warp from real space, which would have torn the souls out of every living thing; the Burning One just wanted to ''burn everything''. They were eventually cast down and [[PiecesOfGod shattered]] by rebellious Necrons and the gods of other races, but the pieces are still out there, and should they reuniteÖ

And not to mention the Outsider, who although is crying in the void of dark space because it committed cannibalism to a ridiculous degree, is still suppose to be more dangerous than the rest of the C'tan.

** [[Plaguemaster Nurgle]] is the God of Death, Decay and Contentment. He's infamous for spreading [[TheVirus disease]] to every corner of the galaxy, and embodies the emotion of being happy with one's lot in life. His followers are generally those who turn to him [[DeathIsTheOnlyOption when there is no other choice]], [[SadisticChoice or if they're already nuts to begin with]] because of disease, starvation or any of the myriad things that CAN happen in the universe of [[CrapsackWorld Warhammer 40,000]]. His followers become [[IdealIllnessImmunity immune to all disease]] and are [[MadeOfIron unbelievably tough]], but mutate so [[BodyHorror grotesquely]] and with [[LovecraftianSuperpower such effects]] that even the [[TheCorruption ground rots under their feet]], and their very presence is [[IncurableCoughOfDeath lethal to anyone within a 50 Mile radius.]] Special mention to the fact that his followers generally consider all of this [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant enjoyable]] and [[DissonantSerenity delight]] in [[NauseaFuel spreading]] the [[{{Squick}} "blessings"]] of Nurgle wherever they go.

** [[AxCrazy Khorne]] is the God of Blood and War, and is shown in the image on this trope's page, along with his follower's signature BattleCry. He is also the God of Martial Prowess and Honour, so his followers are just as likely to be [[TheBerserker Berserk Killers]] or [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Honourable Opponents]].

There are some examples in real-world pantheons, but sometimes more morally-ambiguous or outright decent gods get depicted as Gods Of Evil in SadlyMythtaken fiction just because they are [[DarkIsNotEvil dark]] or [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy associated with violence]]. For various reasons, this happens often enough with death gods to [[EverybodyHatesHades qualify as a subtrope]].

* Charnel from ''VideoGame/{{Sacrifice}}'' is a CardCarryingVillain God of Evil who is GenreSavvy about how important his place is in the pantheon. Amusingly, Charnel is publicly the most fervent opponent of the game's FinalBoss, OmnicidalManiac Marduk, as he doesn't like competitors. [[spoiler:It remains ambiguous just how much he knows about who's ''really'' responsible for summoning Marduk and whether his lines of reasoning for siccing you on the other gods are genuine or simply him using you to settle his old grudges.]]

* Mara in UsefulNotes/{{Buddhism}} is a Deva and is also the "King of Demons". Devas in Buddhism are not exactly like gods in other religions as they're not immortal (though they do have very long lifespan, as in millennia-long) and although most Buddhists believe that they inspire the gods of other religions, should not be praise as they are not really different from humans and not only they also produce karma, they can't really change a person's karma either. Nevertheless they are still very powerful, making Mara particularly dangerous as is the only really "evil" Deva (the other Devas are not evil, just are generally [[UpperClassTwat very arrogant and materialistic]], with some exceptions (as some --very few of them-- are Buddhists).

* ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' has a parody of it. At one point, two preachers appear trying to convert everyone to their belief of a hateful angry god Sithrak promising an eternity of pain even to it's followers. When one of them actually dies and meets him, the god tells them that the book they were reading was his old poetry book from when he was going trough a [[EmoTeen Teen]] {{Angst}} phase and that he doesn't really have any interest in hatred and pain like that, even sending the man back to warn the other follower, though they believe he just hates them so much he is messing with their heads.
