* ''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.

** In ''Literature/TheElenium'', Azash is an elder evil that verges on EldritchAbomination if he didn't manipulate human desires so often (though it's clear his understanding of humanity is imperfect, and largely based on the cultural group most of his worshipers come from), while Cyrgon is a straight example and Klael is ''the god'' of Gods of Evil.

* Some more dualistic forms of Zoroastrianism claim Angra Mainyu (better known by the Persian name ''Ahriman'') is the EvilCounterpart to [[GodOfGood Ahura Mazda]]. In other words, he is essentially the anti-God, or the god of evil. Angra Mainyu isn't so much a name as a title alluding to his nature. Angra can be translated as "destructive" or "malign", while Mainyu can mean "spirit" but also "mind", "concept" or "thought". [[FridgeBrilliance Which means]], Angra Mainyu is ''the'' [[Manga/{{Berserk}} Idea of Evil]]!

* Tash is described this way in ''TheLastBattle'', the final book of ''TheChroniclesOfNarnia'', with CrystalDragonJesus Aslan outright stating that Tash is his antithesis. Interestingly, while Tash is very much a CardCarryingVillain, his own religion is ''not'' a ReligionOfEvil, given that it apparently includes a number of sincere followers who believe Tash to be a just and righteous god. It gets better - Tash is so evil that you cannot commit a good act in his name - they automatically are assumed as your service to Aslan. The opposite is also true - if you do something terrible in the name of Aslan, you're really serving Tash.

* Leviathan from ''HellboundHellraiserII'', Lord of The Labyrinth, God of flesh, hunger, and desire. Leviathan rules over {{Hell}} and decides its very nature, including the very torture of any unlucky soul that wanders into its domain (whether [[TheWoobie they]] deserve it or not) [[AndIMustScream for all of eternity]] or [[spoiler:[[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil turning them into]] [[DemonOfHumanOrigin cenobites]]]].

** However, Darkseid wasn't ''always'' the GodOfEvil, his father Zonuz was his predecessor and was considered ''[[EvilerThanThou even worse]]'' than he is.

* Myth/MesopotamianMythology:
** Lamashtu was a goddess (or sometimes just a demon, depending on the account) who caused miscarriages and sought to capture children to drink their blood and consume their bones. She was often depicted in a monstrous form too, with the head of a lioness, the feet of a bird of prey, and a donkey's ears and teeth. The demon Pazuzu was thought to be her most hated rival, so, even though he was a demon who brought about plagues of locusts and storms, [[EvilVersusEvil his image was thought to ward off Lamashtu.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' has several contenders for the title, but the sanest and most focused is [[ManipulativeBastard Tlacolotl]], an ancient mortal warlord who managed to ascend to godhood by seizing the death and rebirth of an entire universe in his own megalomaniacal name. He ''requires'' his followers to do evil and is thus ironically just as bound to the notion of Good and Evil as his angelic archrival [[KnightTemplar Namm]]. Tlacolotl's real personality and goals are loathsome enough that he's become totally reliant on goodly moral systems to brand people as Evil (thus leaving him as their [[DarkMessiah only refuge]]) in order to secure recruits for his forces.

** ''{{Dragonlance}}'', being almost entirely about the BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil, divides all its gods into gods of good, gods of evil, and gods of neutrality. Obviously, each of them does have the own unique spheres of influence above and beyond their alignment.
