* Played with in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight.'' During the Third Holy Grail War the Einzberns tried to guarantee a victory by summoning the [[SuperRinger Zoroastrian god of evil, Angra Mainyu]]. What they in fact summoned was a man whose village had declared him to be [[TheScapegoat the source of all their sins]], his existence being the origin of Angra Mainyu's myth. Having no special abilities he was quickly killed and absorbed by the Grail. But because this man represented the ''wish'' of those ancient villagers for there to exist a singular source of evil, the Grail attempted to grant that wish. Had there been a victor in either the [[LightNovel/FateZero Fourth]] or [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Fifth]] Grail Wars, he would have become a PhysicalGod.

What they in fact summoned It turns out that Angra Mainyu never actually existed, so the Grail grabbed the next-closest thing it could find: an ancient villager who was a man whose village had declared him to be [[TheScapegoat sacrificed by his people as the source ''representation'' of all their sins]], his existence being the origin of sins, who eventually became known in legend as Angra Mainyu's myth.Mainyu.

* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' had The Source of All Evil (usually just referred to as The Source), who was the ruler of the underworld and the BiggerBad for the first half of the series' run. It was later revealed that "The Source" was actually a primordial force that lived inside whatever demon was currently leader of the underworld at the time.

* Skorm from ''VideoGame/{{Fable}}'', who the PC can make human sacrifices to. [[spoiler: Doesn't actually exist.]] More important than Skorm is the Corruption, the setting's BiggerBad, as well as the Queen of Blades, who had the position in the setting's backstory.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series' mythology contains [[OurGodsAreDifferent many deities]], some more benevolent while others are more malevolent. Even the worst of these deities tend to act within the BlueAndOrangeMorality of the [[AnthropomorphicPersonification spheres over which they govern]], but two stand out as almost irredeemably "evil". To note:
** Molag Bal, the Daedric Prince of Domination and [[TheCorrupter Corruption]], and the "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast King]] [[RedBaron of]] [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil Rape]]", has no redeeming qualities.
** Sithis, referred to as a "[[PowerOfTheVoid great void]]", is a force representing chaos, change, and limitation. Sithis may be one by default, as Sithis is said to be an equal but opposite force to Anui-El, the "soul of all things". Sithis is essentially the ''antithesis'' of all things. [[MindScrew Sithis Is Not]].

** Due to the nature of Abraham's monotheism, YHWH or whatever you want to call it, is both god of good and evil. Calling The God evil is a sore spot among most faithful, even if you call The God good in the same sentence, but that doesn't change that it is part of The God's domain, as all other things are.

* Myth/ClassicalMythology has Kakia, the goddess of vice. In Xenophon's ''Memorabilia'', she appeared to Herakles at a crossroads and attempted to seduce him to a life of empty and worthless pleasure. He chose otherwise.

* Hades, the BigBad of ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' and the Greek god of the underworld. He is portrayed as an EvilOverlord that schemes and plots to betray his brother Zeus, who is essentially the GrandpaGod, [[TheUsurper by overthrowing him and taking over Mount Olympus, i.e. Heaven]]. This is contrary to Greek mythology and more in line with a Christian line of thought, as he's more of a SatanicArchetype in the movie than in the myths, where he was benign.

There are some examples in real-world pantheons, but sometimes more morally-ambiguous or outright decent gods get depicted as Gods Of Evil in SadlyMythtaken fiction just because they are [[DarkIsNotEvil dark]] or [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy associated with violence]]. For various reasons, this happens often enough with [[EverybodyHatesHades death gods]] and [[EverybodyHatesAres war gods]] to create subtropes.

* Leviathan from ''HellboundHellraiserII'', Lord of The Labyrinth, God of flesh, hunger, and desire. Leviathan rules over {{Hell}} and decides its very nature, including the very torture of any unlucky soul that wanders into its domain (whether [[TheWoobie they]] deserve it or not) [[AndIMustScream for all of eternity]] or [[spoiler:[[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil turning them into]] [[DemonOfHumanOrigin cenobites]]]].

* ''Film/TheMummy2017'': Ahmanet, the eponymous Mummy, makes a DealWithTheDevil with Set, the Egyptian God of the Desert (symbolizing chaos, storms, death, and the like). While Set is portrayed as somewhat more benign in the original myths, this does get the title for the Egyptian God of Evil a lot closer than works that promote [[EverybodyHatesHades Anubis]] to this role.
