* Magic[[note]]Never actually called a god, but what else do you call an unknowable sentient being with virtually unlimited power to reshape reality?[[/note]] in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' is, in the words of Elliot, "a needy drama geek [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment with a flair for the dramatic]]," which grants power based mainly on aesthetic sensibilities and, every few hundred years, abruptly withdraws it from almost everyone on Earth and changes how to get it to keep from becoming too prominent on the world stage.

* The Moon King from ''WesternAnimation/KuboAndTheTwoStrings'' possesses power over the Heavens and claims dominion over the "Hell" that is the Earth. While he claims that he simply wants Kubo to live him in the Heavens in an eternity without hate or heartache or death, he really wants to take his other eye (having stolen one of them when he was just a baby) to take away his humanity and make him "cold, and hard, and ''perfect''." He seems to see family less like people to treasure and more like objects in his collection, neither mourning or really caring that all three of his daughters are now dead.
** The Sisters are Kubo's two aunts, Sariatu's sisters and daughters of the Moon King. Both share their father's contempt of mankind and seek to take Kubo's eye on their father's orders. They both see Sariatu falling in love with Hanzo as HowTheMightyHaveFallen and have become embittered by it.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Cersei quotes her father as saying, "Gods have no mercy. That's why they're gods."
** Tyrion is of a similar, though more humorous, opinion: "The Lord of Light wants his enemies burnt. The Drowned God wants them drowned. Why are all the gods such vicious cunts? Where is the god of tits and wine?"

* 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.
