** ...which, of course, is a sequel to ''BruceAlmighty'', where the same God simply dumped all his powers into one guy just to show him how tough God had it.

* Some theologians use this as a solution to the problem of theodicy. The existence of evil is something for us to overcome. Natural disasters and diseases and suffering are so that we can grow as people. It builds character.

* Karma (well, the ThemeParkVersion of it, anyway) is portrayed this way in ''MyNameIsEarl''. Earl has to stick to his list, even when BeingGoodSucks. Otherwise, Karma punishes either him, or people around him (such as a beautiful professor he had recently started dating).
* The ending of ''QuantumLeap'' showed this to be the case, as [[spoiler: God himself, seen as a bartender, has been sending Sam on his jumps to fix mistakes in history rather than just let him go home. The final episode is kind of Him ''finally'' giving Sam a choice about whether to continue (considering the incredible amount of good he could do for the world) ''and'' offering him a chance at a personal do-over. Sam being the kind of person he is, decides to keep going, and uses his favor to go back and help Al hang onto his first wife, the love of his life.]]

* TheFourGods in ''Manga/FushigiYuugi''. They will grant their Priestess ThreeWishes, but it's a SecretTestOfCharacter. She has to use the wishes for the greater good, not for herself (even though she technically can.) The Beast God she summons begins to devour [[ImHavingSoulPains her soul]], and will consume her completely, leaving her an EmptyShell if she is determined to not be strong enough. Also, many of her Seishi are {{Bishounen}}, but the Beast Gods really want her to be a virgin, because even though she has VirginPower, she is in fact technically a VirginSacrifice.

* ''JoanOfArcadia''. The title character had to, among other things, destroy works of art and re-take a test she had aced.

* ''{{Godville}}'': It's one option to continually bother your hero with commands, and probably the only way to actually get him to consistently do things you want him to. Still, being your only follower in a world where [[GodNeedsPrayerBadly miracles run on prayer]], he either knows he has the privilege to sass you back and abuses it, or is too dumb to be aware he shouldn't be talking back to his deity and does so.
