* A downplayed example in ''[[Fanfic/HarmonyAndValor Cultural Differences]]'', Flash Sentry tells Sunset Shimmer and Princess Twilight that he is an Atheist and doesn't believe in any gods. This causes him to have a small argument with Twilight, who believes entirely in her own god, Queen Faust, over how it is possible to not believe in gods and how you can be sure that everyone in your world believes the same as you. Sunset eventually calms them both down and explains to them that the [[NatureVsNurture instinct that ponies have that has them believe in Queen Faust isn't shared by humans.]] Flash for his part says that he is more an Agnostic these days due to all of the magical events he has witnessed first-hand and is more willing to believe in things than he was previously.

* ''Film/DoctorStrange'': Strange dips into this trope during his conversation with The Ancient One by describing humanity as a series of chemical processes on a floating globe in a cold, uncaring universe while she's trying to convince him magic exists. The BigBad later echoes this view of the world later just to rub it in.

* All atheist characters in the Creator/MarquisDeSade's novels despise religion (some while being clergy members themselves), are uniformly sexual sadists/serial killers, and feel that individuals should be allowed to do whatever they desire, murder and rape included, [[AppealToNature because it's natural for them]]. This reflects [[WriterOnBoard De Sade's own view of things]], and he himself was imprisoned and committed to an insane asylum for the sexual abuse of prostitutes and his own servants, along with writing the aforementioned books.

* ''Radio/AlexJones'': In his view, all atheists are evil. Atheism is a Satanic plot to control the world, while individual atheist groups are funded by Satanists.

* Fairly stereotypical example with JackNicholson's character in ''TheBucketList''. He's bitter, cynical, extremely unpleasant to most people he interacts with, and claims to envy people of faith even if he doesn't understand what it's about.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Averted. Ser Davos Seaworth and Thoros of Myr both believed the gods were just something made up to scare children into being good. Thoros came to believe again after his prayer [[BackFromTheDead raised a man from the dead]], while Davos is more reluctant, though Stannis argues it would make no sense to disbelieve after what he's seen Melisandre do. We're not shown what he thinks after this.

* Rick Sanchez of ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' doesn't really soapbox about it, but he has made several passing comments about his disbelief in any higher power. Despite this, he's met and thwarted the Devil, respects Christmas as a tradition, and been shown to not be above [[PrayerIsALastResort prayer as a last resort]] (and then immediately blowing it off when things go his way). He's also a first-rate {{Jerkass}} and generally unhappy most of the time, but his Atheism isn't treated as a symptom or cause of either, so it seems like it's just in keeping with his approach of being a jerk to ''everybody'', whether they exist or not.

* ''Film/TheRapture'': {{Zigzagged}}. Randy is initially an atheist who defends his hedonistic swinger lifestyle by saying it's a biological imperative for humans to have sex. Then he converts to evangelical Christianity almost effortlessly when Sharon tells him about the idea. Later, we meet Foster, who says he's been an atheist all of his life but is a normal, morally upright man who converts after seeing really good evidence.
