* There is a lot of debate over whether Christmas originated as a syncretic co-option of pagan celebrations such as Saturnalia, Dies Soli Invicti, and Yule. While today this is mainly brought forward by neo-pagans as to argue that it was a plot to suppress their own faiths, historically this argument was primarily used by Protestants to denounce the 'impurity' of Catholicism. Prior to the mid-18th century (and in places, well into the 19th), most Protestant sects rejected all religious holidays except Easter (and even then often preferred to called it the Celebration of the Resurrection, as the name 'Easter' was seen as a syncresis), and went to great lengths to reject Christmas and Halloween in particular. This even reappeared in the 20th century among number of Christian sects and offshoots, especially those in the Charismatic and Millenarian movements.

** Similarly, during the Middle Ages and even into the early 20th century, a form of Christian syncretism was common enough among the educated classes. Greek and Norse and Celtic and other ancient European pagan gods were often reinterpreted as Christian angels who had been mistakenly worshipped (whereas the gods of other parts of the world were often assumed to be demons who had been mistakenly worshipped) or reinterpreted as Christian saints who had been deified against their will.

* This trope was - partially - the reason why Japan was so eager to convert to Buddhism. Before that, gods were treated as mons - each clan has it's own, and the power of each ''kami'' was closely tied with family's stadning. So, when buddhist missionaries from Korea started to preach about this "Buddha" - who's said to be stronger than everything else - some people were more then eager to addopt him as their personal OlympusMons

* [[Franchise/StarTrek The Klingon belief system]] seems to be an odd mish-mash of Shinto and Norse mythology, with a MessianicArchetype figure (Kahless) and a NayTheist quirk (they had gods, but killed them as too much of a bother) thrown in. Vulcan spirituality seems to have elements of Shinto ancestor worship within a predominant Buddhist philosophy, with 'logic' substituted for Dharma. The Bajoran faith which features prominently in nearly every episode of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' may be the ultimate example of this trope, combining elements of all three Western monotheisms (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) together with Eastern Hindu/Buddhist mysticism (with the bonus that their gods are definitely real and occasionally show up to chat with the heroes). Plus, they once had castes like Hinduism.

* 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.
