** ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' has the DLC episode "Ancient One of the Sun" which pits the protagonist against the Ancient of Days, one of God's Names. The Ancient of Days has arrived to kill off all the inhabitants of [[spoiler:Blasted Tokyo]], effectively committing genocide so that "God's Chosen" can inherit the Earth. Of course, without the DLC episodes it is '''actually ambiguous about if God is evil or not''', at least as far as [[spoiler:Normal Tokyo]] is concerned and God's plan got derailed completely at [[spoiler:Infernal Tokyo]] due to [[spoiler:Kenji killing off the angels before [[DeusExNukina God's Wrath]] could be unleashed.]]

* The rather [[ShockingSwerve demented]] twist ending to ''Urge'' reveals that the "[[PsychoSerum designer drug]]" that is causing everyone to go insane and kill each other and themselves was created and distributed by God... played by Creator/PierceBrosnan.

* TheDevilsCarnival implies and TheDevilsCarnivalAlleluia outright depicts their version of God as being petty, lustful, and wrathful, and with Heaven as his seemingly-cheerful personal [[InfernalParadise dictatorship]]. He even sings about causing one of the worst dust storms in U.S. history. The Devil and his [[IronicHell Carnival]] are only little better...maybe.

* Maybe not evil per se but clearly misguided according to some Buddhists; in Buddhist cosmology Brahma is the King of Devas and as such the most powerful being in the material Universe (Samsara) other than, of course, Boddhisatvas, some believe that Brahma mistakenly thinks he is the Creator and is the inspiration of the monotheistic religions. Nevertheless, this may contradict certain Buddhists scriptures that say that Brahma actually accepted Buddha’s supremacy and teachings.

** ''Misotheism'' ("hatred of Gods") is a related concept to ''Maltheism'', but is more active in its meaning -- rather than mere belief in a malevolent God, misotheism is an outright hatred of said God. OlderThanFeudalism, maltheistic positions and characters appear in Icelandic sagas and in some Hellenistic sagas. It is distinct from Maltheism in the sense that, whilst Maltheism is the position that God is unworthy of worship, Misotheism is ''active hatred'' for God. Frequently leads to [[HollywoodAtheist Hollywood atheism]]. Several Norse saga characters, e.g. Hrafnkell on ''Hrafnkell's saga'' were called ''goðlauss'' (godless) because of their disdain of the Norse deities and rather relying on themselves. It seems the [[GrimUpNorth Scandinavian tendency]] on Atheism has far longer roots than the modern era, even extending to their Pagan past.

* ''Film/TheRapture'': Sharon comes to believe this. [[spoiler: The film indicates otherwise though, since not only believers but atheists get a chance to enter heaven if they simply accept God. Sharon is only left out by her own choice.]]

* O'ne the Creator in ''Comicbook/TheGreatPowerofChninkel''. The Almighty Creator is willing to annihilate an entire planet and its life but not willing to just kill the three warring immortals Itself. [[spoiler: O'ne actually ''does'' kill almost all life (save a few tawals living underground) by raining fire on the planet's surface. The reason? The heretic king N'om [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech called It out on Its dickery]] and how everything was a conspiracy to make everyone worship It for all eternity. Though at the very least he kept his promise not to destroy Darr.]]

** The central conflict of the story rests around priests and magi trying to gain control of the Holy Grail, which will grant their greatest wish. It turns out towards the end that [[JackassGenie the Grail has a will of its own]] and may do anything from twist your wish to outright refuse it. That said, the church has their doubts that this artifact is actually ''the'' Grail, and other works in the Franchise/{{Nasuverse}} establish that [[spoiler:the Grail has been corrupted ever since the entity Angra Mainyu was sealed in it.]] So, it may be an aversion.

* The Northern Church in ''Literature/WisePhuul'' believes in a malign monotheistic Creator God. They conclude that God must be fought at every opportunity.
