* In ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'', [[PhysicalGod Daniel, Rayana and their family]] are the divine rulers of Avalon, and they're real nice and try to be fair and benevolent. They genuinely love their followers and would do anything for them, and they try to make things right if they mess up.

* ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'': Our heroes are captured by the big bad and all seems lost. Then, Nazis meet Ark of the Covenant, Ark of the Covenant, meet Nazis. Also includes the villain destroying power of [[Film/TempleOfDoom the Sankara Stones]] and [[Film/TheLastCrusade the Holy Grail]]. [[FridgeLogic One could wonder why Indy needs to do anything when the various artifacts of doom seem perfectly capable of taking care of themselves...]] [[FridgeBrilliance then one would realize that the Nazis were all killed by a divine artifact belonging to what the Nazis most hated.]] [[HoistByHisOwnPetard You could say they got what was coming to them.]]

* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'': In a dream, [[spoiler:right when her faith is shaking due to the lies of [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos Nyarlathotep]], Asuka has a vision in which God reveals that He sent her and the remaining pilots to protect mankind from the Outer Gods.]] It's ambiguous if her vision was real or only a dream, though.

Our hero is in the direst circumstance imaginable. The BigBad is triumphant, The heroes are in a [[HeroicBSOD BSOD]], in a few seconds there will be an EarthShatteringKaboom. Then something unexpected happens, The heroes call out to {{God}}, [[UsefulNotes/{{Hinduism}} Vishnu]], [[Literature/TheSilmarillion Ilúvatar]], [[{{Zoroastrianism}} Ahura Mazda]], [[BruceAlmighty Morgan Freeman]] or [[Series/TheColbertReport Stevie Wonder]] for help... and their prayers are answered.

* In ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor'', [[spoiler:God's really trying to fix things and while He's got the [[TheTokyoFireball heavy artillery]] in reserve, He's also doing His level best to help humanity put the demons back in their box without going KnightTemplar.]] He also [[spoiler:gave Cain eternal life to give him time to repent and atone for the slaying of Abel.]] [[ThePunishment That one sort of backfired]], but God's intentions (if we take Remiel's word for it) were good.

* All the gods in ''Manga/DragonBall'' are good. Even Piccolo, the bad side of Kami-sama, the God of Earth, eventually turns good. Unfortunately, in addition to being a [[GodIsInept bit inept]], most of them are weaker than the protagonists and tend to be rather helpless against the current ArcVillain.

Unfortunately, in addition to being a [[GodIsInept bit inept]], most of them are weaker than the protagonists and tend to be rather helpless against the current ArcVillain. Beerus the God of Destruction is the one possible exception, since he's rather selfish and cavalier about destroying things (such as planets), but he's really rather personable when he isn't ticked off, and overall is portrayed as a neutral force (as befits an avatar of destruction).

[[RuleOfDrama For dramatic reasons]], protagonists may avoid turning to God until they've exhausted every other possible recourse: PrayerIsALastResort. (Bonus points if the prayer includes the line, "God, I'm not really a praying man, but...") This can be used to [[GodzillaThreshold underscore how desperate the situation really is]], and also to avoid any [[DeusExMachina too-convenient divine interventions]]. More pious folks may still consider that to be a bit of UnfortunateImplications; [[FridgeLogic after all]], if there's really an [[TheOmnipotent omnipotent]] BigGood who's willing to give you supernatural assistance when you ask, why ''wouldn't'' you ask right away?

* Of course, one of the main beliefs in any major Abrahamic religion (Christianity, Islam, Judaism) is that God Is Good, though [[GoodIsNotSoft you]] ''[[GoodIsNotSoft don't]]'' [[GoodIsNotSoft want to cross Him.]] [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement 'Nuff said.]]

* In ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'': big time. Holy powers can help you against the power of darkness, your arsenal includes holy water, crosses and ranging from a blessed whip and blessed weapons. Of course, depending of the [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaCurseOfDarkness game]], [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow you]] can control the power of darkness, however, it shows that DarkIsNotEvil, and it's your choice to [[BadPowersGoodPeople be evil]] [[BadPowersBadPeople or not]]. Also, your main allies are christians who have faith in your success against darkness. Yoko Belnades and Arikado work for the church, for example. And the original [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaLamentOfInnocence Belmont, Leon]] was a templar, who resigned after all the crap he's been. His [[RealMenLoveJesus faith didn't wane though]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' has a multitude of gods. There's [[spoiler:Zanza]], who is [[GodIsEvil unquestionably evil]], but the others not so much. [[spoiler:Meyneth]] is completely good, beloved by all of her people and [[spoiler:Shulk]] is, of course, good but [[spoiler:relinquishes his godhood within minutes of being granted it]]. In the end, though, it's revealed that [[spoiler:none of them are actually "gods"; the one true god is Alvis and the others have just been borrowing some of his power. And for what it's worth, even though he may be a DoubleReverseQuadrupleAgent, in the end he's not too bad a guy]].
* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' [[spoiler: Arthas has trapped Tirion in ice, killed everyone else, is about to raise them as his undead slaves, and all Tirion can do is pray to the Light to grant him the strength to break free. One burst of holy light later he does and smashes [[EvilWeapon Frostmourne]] in one blow, freeing all the souls the sword had stolen and rendering him defenseless.]] Of course as with all things to do with the Holy Light it's arguable as to whether it's actually the Light acting, or the person wielding it having a moment of absolute faith.

* Putting a twist on it, the Ba'al gods in ''[[VideoGame/TearsToTiara2 Tears to Tiara 2]]'' are actually [[OurGodsAreGreater elves ordered by Arawen to teach and guide humans.]] Presumably same goes for Kleito's dragons. They definitely are good. [[HaveYouSeenMyGod Where in the world Watos is no one knows.]]
