* In ''DragonLance'', whenever the evil goddess Takhisis comes to Krynn, she always has a mighty army at her disposal, including evil dragons and flying fortresses. All her good counterpart Paladin does to stave of total destruction is to come to Krynn as a bumbling old wizard who pulls a few strings here and there, which for some reason is always enough for the heroes to defeat the Queen of Darkness in the end.

* In ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', the GeniusLoci of Paradise tells Karyl that the Creators have taken measures to make it impossible for it to interfere into human affairs, and it can only circumvent this in very minor ways, such as healing Karyl's hand once or giving him some very non-specific information.

* This is a basic premise of LoisMcMasterBujold's Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold's Literature/{{Chalion}} novels.novels. The gods cannot act in the world without a mortal willing to act as a conduit, and very few people are willing because being the tool of a god tends to be inconvenient to say the least.

* In ''{{Literature/Moonflowers}}'', the Irish gods are trying to help Alima Song break the curse that TheWildHunt put on her and her family. As much as they detest how a family is marked for slaughter, they're at their wits' end due to how airtight the curse is, and Alima's father Ned has to make a BloodOath to kill their leader the Hunter. It's eventually explained that the Hunter is the ''Horned'' Hunter of CelticMythology, and not only is he a powerful fairy, he's ''[[AnthropomorphicPersonification a force of nature.]]'' [[/folder]]

# The deity in question is [[GodIsGood a benevolent God]]. It can do anything ''except interfere with free will''; this includes the villain's free will as well. The god ''[[TheOmnipotent can interfere with free will]]'', but it doesn't because that would ''negate'' the purpose of free will in the first place. It doesn't want a creation filled with puppets, and thus interfering defeats the objective.

** ''The Ellimist Chronicles'' shows what happens when their hands are '''not''' tied. If I remember correctly at least 10% of the galaxy was destroyed ''before'' the Ellimist acquired his interdimensional powers. The Cold War style battle is required to keep the fabric of reality from falling apart.
