* In ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'', the High Priest of the Unconquered Sun angers Sol so much, he turned his face from his Exalted, and let the Ursurpation happen without any intervention. Said high priest claimed that Sol backed a tax increase, without having bothered to check with him.

* In ''Fanfic/{{Ripples}}'', Meridian's official religious body, the Sisterhood Covens, are led by an elite group called the High Coventors, who appear to have a first among equals based on seniority. However, after Phobos' purging of the covens following [[KnightTemplar Allora's]] failed coup, the faction that pledges loyalty to him instead appoints its leader the title of Grand Abbess.

* On ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', Kai Winn is the Bajoran equivalent of the Pope, except she's a SinisterMinister who cares about [[ItsAllAboutMe her own self-aggrandizement]] more than the good of Bajor.

* On ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', the Kai Winn is the Bajoran equivalent of the Pope, except Pope. Kai Opaka is wise, open-minded, and politically moderate. Unfortunately, she's soon replaced by Kai Winn, a SinisterMinister who cares about [[ItsAllAboutMe her own self-aggrandizement]] more than the good of Bajor.

ThePope is the TropeCodifier, hence why many High Priests resided in Vatican-style cities, worshipped Abrahamic-analogue Gods, and [[ChristianityIsCatholic borrowed Catholic aesthetics]]. Compare the GodEmperor, who usually leads and is worshiped by the religion in question. There is a good chance he will carry a StaffOfAuthority. If the High Priest is also the leader of the government, you've likely got TheTheocracy.

* While Moslems like to make a point of having teachers but no priests, the closest Islamic equiv would be the Caliph who would hypothetically double as TheEmperor. The office was held by the Ottoman Sultan among his other titles, and became defunct at the fall of the Ottoman Empire. Thus the Islamic Caliph like the Jewish High Priest is a theoretical office at the present time.

* [[BigBadDuumvirate Angelo]] from ''OurLittleAdventure'' is the high priest of '[[PathOfInspiration Angelo's Kids]]' on account of founding the religion himself. He's also an obscenely powerful user of both [[TheArchmage arcane]] and [[ReligionIsMagic divine]] magic who can direct-dial miracles, so [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority the shoe fits]].
