** Beerus and Whis go to some lengths to stretch the rules when Goku Black shows up from the future, but even then they admit they cannot outright solve the problem for the main cast, and Beerus goes so far as to criticize Goku for relying too much on him. Whis also explains that angels like himself are forbidden from interfering except as it relates to their God of Destruction.

** Beerus and Whis go goes to some lengths to stretch the rules when Goku Black shows up from the future, but even then they admit they cannot states he can't outright solve the problem for the main cast, and Beerus Z-Fighters since Gods of Destruction aren't allowed to time travel; he goes so far as to criticize Goku for relying too much on him. Whis the gods, which is [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocritical]] for several reasons[[note]]When it comes down to it, the entire situation is the gods' fault. Gowasu was the one who chose a [[TheSociopath sociopath]] like Zamasu as his successor and [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter was blind to his growing darkness]], something that Beerus lampshades. Gowasu [[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom was also explains the one who gave Zamasu information about the Super Dragon Balls (which are the gods' Dragon Balls), that angels allowed him to steal Goku's body to become Goku Black and give Future Zamasu immortality]]. The future gods were also caught flatfooted as Goku Black murdered all the Supreme Kais with little to no resistance, leaving Future Zamasu and him alone as the supreme gods. Finally, it was Future Zen'o who nuked the entire timeline after Goku and the others crossed every available GodzillaThreshold, and if Future Zen'o actually oversaw the multiverse like himself are forbidden from interfering except he's supposed to, he could have killed both Goku Black and Future Zamasu before it reached that point. Beerus' statement comes off as it relates to their God of Destruction.VictimBlaming more than anything else.[[/note]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Lost}}'': The Island's resident god, Jacob, has strict rules set on his interference with the survivors of Oceanic 815. Due to the vague and archetypal nature of the show, it's not made very clear what they are. Sometimes, he seems like he's bound by cosmic rules, other times he seems like he's abiding by the rules of a game he himself created, and at still other times he acts like a scientist who's set an experiment in motion and refuses to corrupt it through intervention.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/DigimonAdventure:'' Homeostasis (the entity who briefly possesses Kari) explains that it had wanted to contact the kids when they first arrived in the Digital World, but since Kari wasn't there, it couldn't.


Added DiffLines:

* In Marvel's cosmology, the One Above All is ''the'' biggest good out there, but His only weapon is love, for all the good and ill that entails. His only direct interventions usually come in the form of disguising Himself as mortal and handing out pep-talks.

Only in ''rare'' circumstances can this apparent 'deadlock' be broken, for example, [[CurseEscapeClause the devil goes]] [[ILiedback on his word]] or the [[BargainWithHeaven balance of power shifts unexpectedly]].

# The god is likened to a parent, [[SecretTestOfCharacter putting mortals to a cruel test]], when in actuality [[HelpingWouldBeKillstealing it wants them to grow, understand and become stronger]], so they can be, like it, independent.

* ''Series/StargateSG1'' is a prime example of this trope in the last 2 seasons for the ascended Ancient precursors. Turns out that there is an evil counterpart of their race that is just as strong as they are--the Ori, the Evil Goatee-wearing twins of the Ancients. They not only interfere in the affairs of mortals, they direct them to worship the Ori and kill or convert unbelievers, have no problems with throwing their power around, and will grant their preachers some measure of their power. When they come after our galaxy, which had, until now, been shielded by the Ancients, the Ancients still refuse to do anything about the Ori, even when they try to destroy the Ancients. It's up to the simple humans to defeat an army of godlike-powerful beings.

* ''Franchise/DragonBall'': The gods seem to be bound quite a bit by this. This trope might explain why, during the Buu saga when the aforementioned Buu is devouring planets and even deities left and right that the gods don't extend Goku's one day on Earth indefinitely to give him more of a chance to fight. [[spoiler: They eventually do bend the rules a bit to allow Vegeta to come back and fuse with Goku.]]
