* Most of the Norse Gods are seen as the protectors and friends of mankind. Odin stands on the line between GuileHero and (a heroic) MagnificentBastard, though one of his names means "worker of evil" and he can be a massive dick to people.

* In stark contrast to how most deities are portrayed in the series, [[DissidiaFinalFantasy Cosmos]] genuinely tries her best to defeat overwhelming evil and pulls off not one but ''two'' {{Heroic Sacrifice}}s.

* Most [[Myth/HinduMythology Hinduic dieties]] are protectors/overseers of real world concepts/beliefs/practices (Saraswati for Education and Knowledge, Kama for Love, Surya for the Sun, Bhumi for the Earth, Vayu & Varuna for Wind and Water, etc etc...) some are outright contenders against evil, such as Vishnu and Shiva who [[GodInHumanForm take human form]] to battle for humanity, or Kali, the Punisher of Evil.

* Most 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. 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).

* The ''{{Actraiser}}'' series has one of the most DownerEnding in history because of this. In each game, you play as GOD. You save the world from uncountable demons, make your people happy by answering their prayers and building their cities, witness most of your loyal angels die in service to you, defeat the seven deadly sins, and crush Satan (Tanzra in the localized version). What is your reward? [[spoiler:To be utterly forgotten and abandoned, while your avatar slowly crumbles away into dust since the people no longer need you.]]
