* ''LightNovel/YoujoSenki'' gives us an extreme example in Tanya Degurechaff: in her previous life as a salaryman, she seriously dissed God when He talked to her in the moments before her death, refusing to address Him as anything other than "Being X". This pisses God off enough that, in her new life as a magical soldier in an alternate version of WWI-era Germany, she is forced to pray to Him to keep her SuperPrototype magical gem from killing her.

* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'': Mal Reynolds lost his faith in God after the events of Serenity Valley convinced him that God disagreed with him politically. He will allow a preacher on board his ship, but he prefers that he keep his religion to himself: "You're welcome aboard my ship. God ain't." This is [[CallBack called back]] in TheMovie. While Book never tries to get Mal to believe in God, he tries try to get him to believe in ''something''. "I don't care what you believe in, just ''believe''." [[spoiler:And he does eventually believe in something: his crew, and that he has to fight for what's right.]] There is an AlternateCharacterInterpretation that has Mal believing in God, and just really not liking God at all. This interpretation is shared by NathanFillion, the actor who played Mal.

* {{Inverted}} in ''{{Moonlighting}}''. The snarky, somewhat dark, cynic David is a devout believer in God, while his life-affirming, successful partner from a good, loving family, Maddie, is an atheist.

* Jane Christie from the Britcom ''Series/{{Coupling}}''. In one episode she goes to a Christian group and says, "Andrew, lovely! Well, Andrew, there's something I probably better explain. God is just a made up person. You can't expect Him to be answering your prayers if He's not real, can you? That's a bit like writing to the characters of a soap opera and expecting a reply, Mr. Silly Sausage." After being told that the group believes in one true god, she then goes on to state that they should have checked that they have different Gods in different countries. She then wonders if the various Gods are like [=MP=]s[[note]] for American readers this refers to a member of parliament, similar to Congressman[[/note]] that they have a different God for each area, commenting that Thor would be the best head God, due to being a [[FetishFuel muscular blond who can control the weather]].

** In "Grilled Cheesus" with Sue and Kurt: while Kurt expresses dislike of religious ''institutions'' because of what he considers their sexist, homophobic and anti-science attitudes, the arguments he uses in his conversations with the other Gleeks about god and faith are mostly the same as those used by intellectual atheists, including Russell's teapot and a brief reference to the Flying Spaghetti Monster. It's also implied that his atheism is of long standing - his speech about his mother's funeral makes it clear that even as an eight-year-old he had no belief in any sort of after life. On the other hand, he does try to [[WhatTheHellHero stop people from praying for his father when he's in the hospital]], despite the fact that his father is religious and would most likely ''want'' people to pray for him.

* In MarvelComics, the Uncreated are an alien race who ''know'' themselves to have been created by a "god" (this being the Marvel Universe, it's unclear whether this was a PhysicalGod or a SufficientlyAdvancedAlien). This gave them an overwhelming inferiority complex, and so they murdered this being. They then became ScaryDogmaticAliens and launched a genocidal reverse-crusade to exterminate all civilizations who worship any sort of deity. The [[SpacePirates Starjammers]] defeated their fleet by tricking them into believing their god had returned. They killed themselves.

* ''Film/SanFrancisco'': Blackie is obnoxious about his atheism, pouring scorn on Father Tim's faith and the habit of poor people of asking God for help instead of helping themselves. This is all so he can have a moment of religious conversion at the end of the film, thanking God for Mary's survival from the great earthquake, showing himself finally worthy of Mary's love.
