* ''{{Exalted}}'': In ''[[GrandFinale Return of the Scarlet Empress]]'' The force of the Demon City [[spoiler:or rather, just the [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Ebon Dragon]]]] manages to invade Yu-shan and kills all the Incarnae. What they don't expect, though, [[spoiler:is that the death of the Incarnae [[EleventhHourSuperpower unlocks the god-tier powers of all Celestial Exalts]].]]

* DC had this happen with Asmodel, the treachous leader of the Bull-Host of Angels who wanted to succeed where Lucifer had failed and overthrow God, or "The Presence" as he's known in DC. Despite the interference by the Justice League and his arch-enemy Zauriel, Asmodel managed to fight his way to the Presence's throne room... only to find it empty, except for Zauriel. Zauriel reminds Asmodel that the Presence isnt contained to a throne (it's just where the angels go to commune with him), he's part of the very foundation of existance, and thus, there is, and never was, any way that any sort of rebellion against Him can succeed.



* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', the legions of Hell are invading Heaven and Kenny (who is currently [[TheyKilledKennyAgain dead]]) is called on to stop them.

* This is the final act in the first campaign of ''VideoGame/DiabloIII''. [[spoiler:Diablo, having become the Prime Evil and the sole ruler of the Burning Hells]], leads a massive demonic invasion of the High Heavens. The angels are unprepared for an attack of this magnitude and are quickly overrun. The player helps drive them back and defeats [[spoiler:Diablo at the heart of the High Heavens]]. [[AllThereInTheManual Supplemental materials]] explain that similar attacks have occurred in the past but never made it past the Diamond Gates, usually due to [[WeAREStrugglingTogether demonic in-fighting]] weakening their forces.

But for those times when things ''truly'' go FromBadToWorse, the demons will launch an all-out onslaught against Heaven, seeking to corrupt or destroy the CouncilOfAngels, the FantasyPantheon, [[{{God}} the Big Guy Himself]], and even [[DraggedOffToHell sending every good soul to hell]]. Unless TheArmiesOfHeaven are there to stop the advance, the heroes now have the unenviable task of stopping everything from being destroyed (unless GodAndSatanAreBothJerks, and the protagonists are {{Nay Theist}}s and go all "plague upon both your houses, let's PassThePopcorn and [[DeusExNukina nuke]] [[RageAgainstTheHeavens whoever survives]]"). Since situations like these are nearly always GrandFinale situations, they are usually big spoilers. Bonus points if the heroes and TheArmiesOfHeaven fight side by side, or the heroes reunite with another hero character, who earlier was KilledOffForReal, and get fight alongside them one last time.

* Wendy Alec's ''The Chronicles of Brothers'' series, a series of Christian polemic novels about the in-fighting between the brethren Gabriel, Michael, Christos and the black sheep of the family, Lucifer. The aforementioned Lucifer tries this on more than one occasion, only to be humiliatingly bitch-slapped by his brother Christos and the lads. As Mrs. Alec's novels follow pretty much exactly the Christian perspective and what is "known" (in the Bible and related sources) about the nature of Heaven and Hell and their denizens, you wonder why Lucifer even bothered... it's in the Bible, you'll never win....

* In ''VideoGame/TitanQuest: The Immortal Throne'', when you reach the Elysium you find out that the heroes there are fighting back the hordes of shades and demons serving Hades, which has gone mad with power. Odder than the standard example because Elysium is still part of Hades's kingdom.
** The final part of ''Titan Quest'' also qualifies as a variation; you have to prevent Typhon, the most fearsome of the Titans from invading Mt Olympus.

* A non-Ambrahmic example appears near the end of ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''. As the Battle of Manhattan races to a close, our heroes take a ClimacticElevatorRide up to Olympus to make a last attempt at stopping Kronos. It's pretty simple to find him-he carved a swathe of destruction through the city. Given its previous appearances as a CrystalSpiresAndTogas-type place, it's jarring and sets the dire tone for the fight well.
