* 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 [[UpperClassTwit very arrogant and materialistic]], with some exceptions (as some --very few of them-- are Buddhists).

Mara attempted to tempt Buddha away during his pursuit of enlightenment and will still do this to others in Buddhist teaching.

* ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'': The Keeper of the Underworld, who caused all death, suffering and darkness, in contrast to the Creator. He did this to spite her in spite when the Creator lavished so much on human beings.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': Subverted by [[{{Satan}} Lucifer]]. He's revered by the demons as an actual god of evil, but in reality he's "just" an archangel who is several orders of magnitude below his heavenly Father. Though he ''can'' mop the floor with just about any pagan god, possibly because GodNeedsPrayerBadly.

** Molag Bal, the Daedric Prince of Domination and [[TheCorrupter Corruption]], and the "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast King]] [[RedBaron of]] [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil Rape]]", deservedly gets this label. And unlike Dagon, Molag Bal has no redeeming qualities that allow him to subvert it.

And unlike Dagon, Most of the Daedra are JerkassGods to some degree or another, but still have redeeming qualities, even Mehrunes Dagon. Not Molag Bal has Bal. He is a being pure malevolence with no redeeming qualities that allow whatsoever. He basically is ''TheDevil'' to the [[OurElvesAreBetter Dunmer]], as they see him as the creator of obstacles trying to subvert it.threaten the "purity" of the [[TheClan Great Houses]]. [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating He is not much better regarded by any other race on Tamriel either]].

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series' mythology contains [[OurGodsAreDifferent many deities]], some more benevolent while others are more malevolent. Even the worst of these deities tend to act within the BlueAndOrangeMorality of the [[AnthropomorphicPersonification spheres over which they govern]], but two stand out as almost irredeemably "evil".

To note:
** Mehrunes Dagon, the Daedric Prince of [[DestroyerDeity Destruction]], often gets this label in-universe (due to his actions typically resulting the death or ruin of many mortals) and incorrectly by the series' fandom. It is an easy mistake to make given that Dagon has served as the BigBad or GreaterScopeVillain of several games in the series. However, Dagon ultimately subverts the trope. While he is highly destructive, he cannot be considered any more truly "evil" than a destructive act of nature like a flood or an earthquake. Dagon also has several redeeming qualities within his sphere, such as governing over Change, which a functioning world requires to exist. (If the old is never "destroyed", there can be no room for anything new.)

* Played with in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight.'' During the Third Holy Grail War the Einzberns tried to guarantee a victory by summoning the [[SuperRinger Zoroastrian god of evil, Angra Mainyu]]. What they in fact summoned was a man whose village had declared him to be [[TheScapegoat the source of all their sins]], his existence being the origin of Angra Mainyu's myth. Having no special abilities he was quickly killed and absorbed by the Grail. But because this man represented the ''wish'' of those ancient villagers for there to exist a singular source of evil, the Grail attempted to grant that wish. Had there been a victor in either the [[LightNovel/FateZero Fourth]] or [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Fifth]] Grail Wars, he would have become a PhysicalGod.

* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' had The Source of All Evil (usually just referred to as The Source), who was the ruler of the underworld and the BiggerBad for the first half of the series' run. It was later revealed that "The Source" was actually a primordial force that lived inside whatever demon was currently leader of the underworld at the time.

* Skorm from ''VideoGame/{{Fable}}'', who the PC can make human sacrifices to. [[spoiler: Doesn't actually exist.]] More important than Skorm is the Corruption, the setting's BiggerBad, as well as the Queen of Blades, who had the position in the setting's backstory.

** Sithis, referred to as a "[[PowerOfTheVoid great void]]", is a force representing chaos, change, and limitation. Sithis may be one by default, as Sithis is said to be an equal but opposite force to Anui-El, the "soul of all things". Sithis is essentially the ''antithesis'' of all things. [[MindScrew Sithis Is Not]].

** Due to the nature of Abraham's monotheism, YHWH or whatever you want to call it, is both god of good and evil. Calling The God evil is a sore spot among most faithful, even if you call The God good in the same sentence, but that doesn't change that it is part of The God's domain, as all other things are.
