* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** This is the case for the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Divines]] much of the time, combined with GodIsInept, as the creation of the mortal world severely weakened them. During the Dawn and Merethic Eras, the Aedra who would become the [[SaintlyChurch Eight Divines]] still had somewhat enough power to take limited manifestations on Nirn, so there are tons of legends of them directly interacting with mortals. However, by the time of the First Era, all of them had vanished except within shrines and temples, where they could perform limited actions. One source attributes this to [[TopGod Akatosh's]] pact with [[FounderOfTheKingdom St. Alessia]] and the [[BarrierMaiden Dragonfires]]; this pact, designed to keep [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedra]] from being able to walk into Mundus with all or most of their power (as [[OmnicidalManiac Mehrunes Dagon]] did at the end of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]''), also greatly restricts the Divines. As a result, the Divines prefer a much lighter touch when they [[DivineIntervention intervene]] on mortal affairs, preferring to act through mortal agents almost exclusively while reserving direct manifestations for the [[GodzillaThreshold last push]] to [[SavingTheWorld save the world]] when all else has failed.
** The Nedes, human [[{{Precursors}} ancestors]] to most of the modern races of Men, had the study and worship of the [[StarPower stars]] as a major part of their culture. They also worshiped beings known as "celestials", though exactly who or what they were has been lost to time. As the Nedes began to evolve into the modern races of Men, the [[RacialRemnant last remaining group]] who identified themselves as Nedes survived deep in the deserts of Hammerfell. This group turned away from worship of the stars and celestials as they did nothing to help stop the decline of their race. (Eventually, the Redguards would arrive in Hammerfell and wipe out this remnant of the Nedes.)

* In ''Literature/TheSpiritThief'', it eventually turns out the Creator vanished when he left the world in search of a way to [[spoiler:destroy demons]] and left his three children in charge. He promised them he'd be gone for some five hundred years, a millennium tops, but the story begins five thousand years after his disappearance and he's still nowhere to be seen.

* ''Webcomic/{{Drive}}'': The Vinn, a warlike faction of alien species infested with a mind-wiping parasite, are devoted to a religion revolving around finding their "Lost Gods", which they believe were "lost to the blackness of space" . In truth, their gods are an extinct race that accidentally created the Vinn parasite in an attempt to cure a disease that was killing them. It's a doomed quest -- the Vinn parasite killed its makers more effectively than the disease ever did, and the few survivors nuked themselves into oblivion in a failed attempt to destroy the Vinn.

* The Zuul from ''SwordOfTheStars'' have lost their "gods" (the race of AbusivePrecursors who created them) and are on a galaxy-spanning crusade to find out what happened to them. This is very much Not A Good Thing for any other species they happen to encounter on the way; the Zuul were made for the express purpose of exterminating their creators' enemies, and to the Zuul the act of genocide has become a holy purpose.

* In ComicBook/{{Bone}}, the dragons (which are not technically Gods, but they're the series' {{Big Good}}s and are very long-lived creatures well in touch with the spiritual forces of the ComicBook/{{Bone}} Universe) end up going underground to sleep instead of protecting the Valley people or attempting to do anything about [[spoiler: the Lord of the Locusts]].
* In one ''Comicbook/GhostRider'' story it was revealed that {{God}}'s throne in Heaven is empty. Curiously, a ''Comicbook/FearItself'' tie-in reveals that {{Satan}}'s throne is also empty. It is shown Lucifer is real, but Satan is more of a title no hell-lord is strong enough to claim.

* In ''TearsToTiara'' the supreme diety Watos apparently vanished after creating the universe, leaving the angels in charge. It's not clear if he's dead or alive or what.
** He's still missing in the sequel ''[[VideoGame/TearsToTiara2 Tears to Tiara 2]]''. The question of exactly where he is is a major theme of the story.

* ''Film/{{Dogma}}'' puts the responsibility on the shoulders of the main characters after God seemingly vanishes from Heaven. Then again, it's not exactly as if it's Her fault in this case.
