** For another religion, you actually have [[Literature/JourneyToTheWest Xuanzang]] as one of your possible Servants. As a devout Buddhist, you can definitely tell from [[GenderFlip her]] that Buddha is also a pretty swell guy.

* In VideoGame/SaintsRowGatOutOfHell [[spoiler: we discover God is a benevolent and grateful being willing to rewrite the universe to give Gat and the Saints a [[BittersweetEnding (mostly)]] happy ending. Given how much crap the Saintís have pulled, this is a remarkably nice gesture.]]

*** Of the Aedra, Akatosh, the [[DragonsAreDivine draconic]] God of Time and [[TopGod chief deity]] of the Nine Divines pantheon, is seen as wholly good by almost every race which acknowledges him. The exceptions are the [[LizardFolk Argonians]], who lack the usual concept of "time" [[LanguageEqualsThought with no tense verbs]] and "live in the now", and the Dunmer (Dark Elves), whose traditional religion considers the Aedra to be "false gods" and who have passed many of Akatosh's aspects (particularly those of being a progenitor and parental figure) on to the [[PhysicalGod Tribunal deity]] Almalexia, instead.

The Nords ''used'' to see their counterpart to Akatosh as a hostile, world-devouring force, but whether through the traditional Nordic pantheon falling away in favour of Imperial religious ideas or retcons, Alduin began to be seen as a separate draconic time-related entity to Akatosh.

** Her sister Princess Luna, who raises the moon each night, ''used'' to be bad but got better with a dose of LoveRedeems, and now she is a prime example of DarkIsNotEvil. Less restrained than her sister, the Princess of the Night speaks with a deafening voice that brings gale-force winds, her hooves crack the earth, and if she gets annoyed, clouds form and the sky starts to rumble. ...and she just wants everyone to realize she's not [[GreenEyedMonster Nightmare Moon]] anymore and to stop fearing her, and she once helped Scootaloo overcome her fears by appearing in her dreams, and played with the children on [[YouMeanXMas the series' version of Halloween]]. She's scary, but as kind as her sister.

[[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 this to be unsatisfying; [[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?

Compare GodOfGood, which overlaps (since, in monotheistic religions, [[{{God}} He]] is this also). This is the guy that the GoodShepherd and ThePaladin work for. TheMissionary spends his time WalkingTheEarth and telling people about this trope. Compare EverybodyLovesZeus, where light and heaven-based gods not traditionally good and pure are portrayed as such in adaptation. Compare JesusWasWayCool for when The Son gets good ink specifically. Can also include God working InMysteriousWays, since if He hasn't directly shown Himself before, chances are He was working ''through'' the heroes. Compare OmniscientMoralityLicense, where a god justifies seemingly unethical actions by revealing their incredible knowledge let them know it would lead to good in the future.

** In addition of this, the Aztec God Quetzacoatl is present as a summonable Heroic Spirit, albeit with a GenderFlip, and she certainly shows that she is a good God(dess): a nurturing deity that dislikes human sacrifices that other Aztec deities LOVED doing.

* In ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'', ultimately the reason why the team at Chaldea succeeded in defeating the BigBad was because [[spoiler:God has made plans to allow the real Solomon, who was being impersonated by said BigBad, to exist in present days (as Dr. Roman) and has worked behind the scenes in order to allow the good guys to have a chance in victory.]] In addition, several Servants are also Saints of God (Georgios and Martha) and also give a good preaching or messages about this trope. [[spoiler:Yep, they're right.]]
