* The ''Handbook: House Davion'' sourcebook for TabletopGame/BattleTech details a religious movement in the Federated Suns called the "Unfinished Book Movement" which is a literal mash-up of a number of existing religions (most of which still exist elsewhere in the setting, even within Davion Space) into a single entity with a single, collected, holy scripture. Apparently it's becoming quite a major player in the realm by the time the book was set.
* InUniverse for ''WarhammerFantasy'' and ''Warhammer40K'': While there are four Chaos Gods (representing the emotions of rage, desire, hope and love) and many of their worshippers devote themselves to a single one, it's also possible to worship them as a pantheon as a follower of Chaos Undivided.

* Sanshinto or Tritheism in ''{{Literature/Tasakeru}}'' is based primarily on Shinto, but has elements from Greek, Roman, and Norse mythology. The species' differing beliefs draw from ''everywhere'', even, [[WordOfGod according to the author]], the CthulhuMythos.

* [[http://caricatura.ru/daily/korsun/360/ This]] (text: "Basics of religious cultures and secular ethics") was a reaction on the introduction of this experimental "[[NoExceptYes obligatory facultative]]" school course -- which, obviously, managed to unite ''everyone'', if only in condemnation of this offence.

* The end of the ''{{Pendragon}}'' series has Ravinia, in which people see life in the rest of the universe (Halla) for the first time. This is not a religion in itself, but something that attracts people regardless of religion into one group. On the other hand, it divides people based on social class.

* ''VideoGame/{{Siren}}'' has the local religion of Hanuda, which combines village and Japanese folklore with Christianity and worship of an "alien god" [[spoiler:who the locals ate during a famine and whose new physical incarnation serves as the final boss of the game.]]

* The ''Janissaries'' by Jerry Pournelle has a world that has both Christians and pagans, with the pagan religion being very loosely based on Myth/ClassicalMythology. When a Christian nation enters into a political alliance with two pagan nations, a bishop has a rather convenient revelation that the two religions in fact worship the same god, resulting in the creation of a politically backed syncretic religion.

Added DiffLines:

Compare and contrast ChurchOfSaintGenericus, where the religious details could cover any number of faiths simply because they're left nonspecific.

* [[Franchise/StarWars The Force]], once described by Mark Hamill as "Religion's Greatest Hits!" The religion of the Force has strong elements of Buddhism, Jainism, Hinduism, Daoism and a bunch of other mystical traditions, with Christian symbology (the Jedi are [[KnightInShiningArmour Knights In Brown Robes]] and not for nothing is the hero named [[UsefulNotes/{{Christianity}} Luke]]).

This is when a constructed fictional or real world religion is clearly a mix of any number of real-world religions. An author will often use this by combining various interesting bits of existing religions, belief systems, and philosophies, and changing the names and places to make the new religion fictional. [[{{Wiki/Wikipedia}} That Other Wiki]] knows this process as it happens in RealLife as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syncretism syncretism]].
