* While [[JesusWasWayCool Jesus is way cool]] in Christopher Moore's ''{{Lamb}}'' his father's reaction to Joshua's pleading for humanity is "Screw 'em".

* The Sinistrals in the ''{{Lufia}}'' series of games fit this trope to a T. Arek (the true leader of the Sinistrals who is IntriguedByHumanity) and Erim [[spoiler:who becomes so attached to humanity (mostly due to Maxim) that she repeatedly reincarnates herself as a human girl who falls in love with a hero of Maxim's bloodline]] are the only exceptions. The rest are total jerks.

* ''Literature/MalazanBookOftheFallen'' has Elder God Errastas, who has been laying low and limited himself to small, petty things like political manipulation, incest and homicide in ''Literature/MidnightTides'', but once he decides to up his game again, he's right back to mass slaughter and trying [[spoiler: to end the world and rule over the remains]]. He also feels that he has the sole right to govern over magic as Master of the Tiles --hearing that he has been succeeded by a Master of the Deck immediately inspires him to new heights.

** While [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Alola's guardians]] protect the islands from danger, [[HolyIsNotSafe they're not exactly friendly]]. Tapu Koko is capricious and fickle in saving people, Tapu Lele casually uses its scales to cause people to fight and kill each other for its own amusement, Tapu Bulu destroyed an entire village when a supermarket was built near its domain (despite being the nicest of the Tapus), and Tapu Lele is indifferent to those in need, and only helps those who survve its powerful fog. [[TheFairFolk Fittingly, they're all part Fairy-type]].

** Tornadus and Thundurus, OlympusMons introdiced in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite'', are a pair of genie-like creatures who use their abilities to cause mayhem for humans and Pokémon, particularly farmers. No reason is given for their mischief (which is also reflected in their shared Prankster Ability); they just do it for fun. Fortunately their {{foil}}, Landorus, is far more benevolent.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobSquarePantsMovie'': King Neptune is presented as such, even more so than his counterpart in the actual ''SpongeBob'' series, being willing to dish out harsh punishments for incredibly petty reasons. For starters, he threatened to imprison the royal crown polisher for ''20 years'' for simply touching his crown, the job he was ''hired'' to do, and if his daughter Mindy's statements are correct, he can barely go a single day without trying to execute someone. That being said, at the end of the movie, he gets AnAesop on how important it is to have love and compassion when you're in a position of leadership.
* Xibalba from ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife'', ends up nearly ruining the life of Manolo and indirectly destroying San Angel because he wants to get back in his wife's good graces. [[spoiler:Subverted at the end of the film. Learning to be a better person is what actually does the trick.]]

* ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'': Freddy Krueger wields godlike power [[DreamWeaver in the dream world]], and can essentially do whatever he wants, essentially making him a dream god. Rather than do anything too substantial, he uses this power to mess with his victims and carry out petty murders purely ForTheEvulz.

* God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit go golfing. The Holy Spirit tees off with an OK shot that lands on the edge of the fairway and goes into the rough. Jesus does a great drive that lands square on the green. God takes a long time to set up, then hits a terrible drive that ricochets off a tree and goes towards the water. Just before it lands in the water, a fish leaps out of the water and swallows the ball, then a heron swoops out of the sky and picks the fish up in its mouth and flies off towards the rough. The heron squeezes the fish, which spits the ball out. The ball falls towards the water, only to be caught by a passing raven which veers back towards the course and lands in a sand trap. The raven leaves the ball in the sand, and a squirrel runs into the sandtrap, picks up the ball, carries it to the hole and drops it in. Whereupon Jesus turns to God and says "Are you going to play golf, or are you going to fuck around?"

Another case of Buddha being a jerkass was the time he had his men fly Tripitaka and Co. back to China, but before they were home, Buddha asked how many disasters they had suffered on their way to him, after finding out it was 80 Buddha decided to have them go through another one just because 9 was Buddism's lucky/holy number and 9x9 is 81 [[Note: They didn't even NEED to experience another disaster, Buddha just wanted them to]], so he orders his men to drop them without consulting Tripitaka and Co. Keep in mind Buddha wasn't with them, he asked a Divine record keeper for the number.
