* This is the underlying philosophy of the 2015 ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'' villain, Gor the God-Butcher, who ironically goes on to ''become'' a GodOfEvil in everything but [[AGodIAmNot name]] with the use of [[InfinityPlusOneSword All-Black the Necrosword]]. Which, for added irony, is the most likely ''cause'' of his StartOfDarkness: he became convinced that gods were evil because no god ever answered his prayers despite a lifetime of need, which is strongly implied to be because they were all fighting and dying to stop the ravages of the ''last'' wielder of All-Black the Necrosword.

* In the backstory of ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' (insofar as a fantasy world simulator can have a backstory), the supreme deity, Armok, God of Blood, loves conflict and creates worlds in order that conflict may occur. As the world approaches stability, Armok destroys and recreates the world anew. In a meta sense, Armok is the player, who is likely to generate a new world when their current one becomes peaceful (and therefore boring).
** The regular gods in the game are no better, cursing mortals with [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampirism]] and [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent therianthropy]], bestowing slabs containing the secret of [[BlackMagic animating the dead]], and raising demons from the underworld, all in the name of creating further conflict.

* Played with in ''Film/TheLegoMovie'': [[spoiler:"The Man Upstairs", who is revered as a god among the Master Builders, is actually the father of Finn, the child who played with his dad's Legos against his constant instructions to leave them be so he can keep all of his Lego sets seperate. In the story that Finn weaves, he bases the villain Lord Business on his father. Thankfully, "The Man Upstairs", and by extension Lord Business, has a change of heart and decides to let Finn build whatever he likes with his Legos.]]

In settings that take the controversial stance of God being evil, it is not uncommon for [[SatanIsGood his infernal opposite to be good]]. Or for his [[{{Jesus}} son]] to be [[JesusWasWayCool way cool]]. This [[GodAndSatanAreBothJerks isn't strictly necessary]], however, especially in darker {{Crapsack World}}s whose authors take a [[BlackAndGreyMorality more humanistic and/or existential stance on things]].

* Zigzagged in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** The few times God has appeared in show, he's been portrayed as a decent guy. [[KingOfAllCosmos A hippo-monkey-cat who's a practicing Buddhist]], but a nice guy. ''Mostly'' averted because of his long-time practice of only letting Mormons into Heaven... which meant everyone else went to Hell. Including Buddhists. The first idea (God being Buddhist) is probably a spoof of a real life concept in Buddhism that according to some scriptures [[http://www.budsas.org/ebud/ebdha068.htm God himself recognized Buddha’s superiority]][[note]]Or more exactly, Mahabrahma, the King of Devas, considered by many Buddhists the inspiration of the God from the monotheistic religions[[/note]] which [[ShownTheirWork Shows Their Work]]. The second idea of only letting Mormons enter heaven is [[TakeThat mocking the believe]] that some real life fundamentalist churches have that only members of their specific group would enter heaven no matter what behavior good or bad non-members may have. On the other hand Hell is a pretty decent place for most people (only serious evildoers get actually tortured), while Heaven is so dull that only the Mormons can enjoy it. Even serious evildoers often are able to do rather well in Hell. Saddam Hussein managed to romance Satan himself (who turns out to be not too bad a guy after all, and certainly not deserving of what happens to him) and parlay being Satan's BastardBoyfriend into ''taking over hell and using it to invade Earth''.
** Though there was the episode where Stan asked Chef about God (because Kenny was dying... again) and their conversation went like this:

* Averted by ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': the few times God has appeared in show, he's been portrayed as a decent guy. [[KingOfAllCosmos A hippo-monkey-cat who's a practicing Buddhist for some reason]], but a nice guy. ''Mostly'' averted because of his long-time practice of only letting Mormons into Heaven... which meant everyone else went to Hell. Including Buddhists. [[FridgeLogic Even though God himself is a Buddhist]]. South Park is ''weird''.
** This is probably based in the fact that, in real life, Buddhist scriptures establish that [[http://www.budsas.org/ebud/ebdha068.htm God himself recognized Buddha’s superiority]].
** Remember that in ''South Park'', Hell is a pretty decent place for most people (only serious evildoers get actually tortured), while Heaven is so dull that only the Mormons can enjoy it. Even serious evildoers often are able to do rather well in Hell. Saddam Hussein managed to romance Satan himself (who turns out to be not too bad a guy after all, and certainly not deserving of what happens to him) and parlay being Satan's BastardBoyfriend into ''taking over hell and using it to invade Earth''.

* The Architect in ''Film/TheMatrixReloaded'' and ''Film/TheMatrixRevolution'': Not only is called "The Architect" (the name that Freemasons use for God), he sits in a throne, watching everything that happens in his realm and is an old man with a white beard and a deep voice. Clearly an allusion. He's also incapable of empathy (he creates the program Oracle for that) and feels no love at all for the humans. He might not be the creator of the humans or the universe outside the Matrix, but is a very similar concept of God that certain religions have like the Demiurge in Gnosticism or the role of Brahma in Buddhism.
