** Mothwing has a naturalist view on [=StarClan=]. She especially stands out as she's an atheist ''medicinecat''. Medicinecats are supposed to have a close relationship to [=StarClan=]. This is essentially the equivalent of being an atheist priest or nun. Mothwing however subverts most of the aspects of a Hollywood Atheist and is a nice cat [[spoiler:unlike her brother]].

* A few species, such as self-reliant lions who don't think they need others advice and malicious crocodiles, in ''Literature/{{Bravelands}}'' do not worship the Great Spirit or respect her channeler the Great Parent.

* Red Robin/ ''Comicbook/{{Robin}}'' III/Tim Drake in the Pre-Flashpoint continuity (1989-2011) was officially made to not "get" faith in Red Robin #22 (which would make him a regular atheist) but afterwards he also says he has trouble believing a God would let all these horrors happen while saving a Church member.

* ''Literature/GuardiansOfTheFlame'': Doria lost any faith in a benevolent deity after negative experiences in her life. This causes some problems on the Other Side, since she can't pray for her spells to come back without it. Later though she comes to believe in the Healing Hand and embraces her role as a cleric.

** The BigBad was one of these, telling the heroes: "[[ShutUpKirk There is no goddess]], [[IHaveComeTooFar so I will continue to pursue]] [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill my ideals]]." Which is kind of ironic when you consider that he's the closest thing the world has to a PhysicalGod; even more so when you realize that [[spoiler:the sister he set up as a false deity becomes the closest thing to an actual goddess]] - and the [[ItMakesSenseInContext "sequel"]] ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'' reveals that some sort of afterlife does exist.

* Franchise/{{Batman}} is portrayed as an atheist by some authors, presumably as a side effect of having his parents killed and spending the last 10 to 15 years looking at the slimy underside of society. This being Batman, if he did believe in a God he probably has [[CrazyPrepared a plan to take Him out, and could execute it, given enough prep time]].

* Baran the Emperor of Light, a villain from the final chapters of the ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' manga, whose disbelief in God comes from the fact that his dead sister died from a curable disease because she refused to take the medicine he stole for her. His nonbelief later drove him to start his own evil cult.

Compare with HolierThanThou, and see CrisisOfFaith. See also [[UsefulNotes/{{Atheism}} Useful Notes on Atheism]]. [[IThoughtItMeant Not to be confused with]] some of the American conservative movement's more vocal members' view of Hollywood's "war on Faith".

* 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 muscular blond who can control the weather.

* {{Averted}} by Roronoa Zoro in ''OnePiece'', who was revealed to be an atheist during the Skipeia arc, but not due to his tragic past, and has no problem at all with faith in general. It's just that BECAUSE he's seen so many strange and outlandish adventures that he considers it more likely that anything the can't explain is just another super power they haven't heard of yet as opposed to something caused by an actual God. Being able to rain down lightning on a whim doesn't look as divine after your crew has already spent time fighting a living sand storm and riding geysers into the sky. Furthermore, he also stated that if God did exist, he would like to meet him because he or she would be a WorthyOpponent. He's just that badass.
