* The ComicBook/NewGods in the New 52 have become KnightsTemplar to the point where it's hard to tell if they're really an improvement over ComicBook/{{Darkseid}}.

** Hera is a straight up bitch, with her hatred of her husband's demigod children having, over the millennia, morphed into an irrational hatred of all demigods. It is noted that where she goes, demigods tend to die in mysterious circumstances. She makes a veiled threat against Harry's life in a ShameIfSomethingHappened sort of way, while also taking a jab at the fact that he hasn't (as yet) manifested obvious powers from his father. This earns her an outright death threat from Thor, who very bluntly tells her that he can see through what she's saying and that if she makes one wrong move, he'll incinerate her, and a ReasonYouSuckSpeech from the mysterious entity that has taken an interest in Harry.

* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'': Invoked and defied by [[spoiler:the GodEmperor of Mankind,]] [[FlatEarthAtheist of all people]]. He convinced [[spoiler:the ''Tabletop/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' gods to send a [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Keeper of Secrets]] instead of a Lord of Change to deliberately make Shinji's life more difficult AND was responsible for the production of [[EldritchAbomination Mass Produced Evas]]... so that Shinji would learn firsthand how mortals suffer when the gods are douchebags and not treat mortals in a similarly asinine manner after his ascension.]] Shinji fully admits that it was a crucial lesson for him to learn... after he curses at and punches [[spoiler:the Emperor]] in the face.

** King Sombra seems to be this for the Crystal Empire. A millennium ago, he seemingly came out of nowhere and magically converted the entire place into a {{Mordor}}; oppressed the Crystal Ponies as his blatant, personal SlaveRace; and then -- once Princesses Celestia and Luna came and overthrew him for the Crystal Ponies' sake -- cursed the Empire to vanish as both spite for his imprisonment and PragmaticVillainy to preserve "his" domain until his inevitable return. And in the Season 5 finale, one of the {{Bad Future}}s shows what would've happened if said return had gone off without a hitch: he would've inflicted FromBadToWorse on the Crystal Ponies by magically brainwashing them into becoming his soldiers in a war against the rest of Equestria. As a confirmed {{Expy}} of [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Sauron]], he can't even be mentioned without an aura of complete unpleasantness.

* Nyarlathotep and, depending on one's point of view, Philemon from the ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' series. They are the {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s of humanity's creative and positive urges (Philemon) and humanity's self-destructive urges (Nyarlathotep). They treat the fight between them as a game, using people as agents and pawns to act out their eternal war. Nyarlathotep wants nothing more than to kick over the table and ruin everything, but Philemon holds him back. But then, for all Philemon empowers the heroes, all he really cares about is saving humanity in the aggregate, and lets his agents go through hell without so much as a note of sympathy. There's a reason a lot of players like to [[spoiler:have Tatsuya punch Philemon in the face rather than thank him]] at the end of ''[[{{Persona2}} Innocent Sin]]''.
* The Elder Gods from ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'', particularly MortalKombat9, where, when begged by Raiden for help against the invasion of Earthrealm by [[CrapSackWorld [=Outworld=]]] , their response is "so sad, too bad, but we don't care about the genocide of an entire realm".

* The Gods in ''Theatre/OnceOnThisIsland'' are completely cruel to the humans for no apparent reason, except Asaka. Agwe likes to lash them with storms [[ForTheEvulz for the hell of it]], Papa Ge is, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a demon of death]] who also happens to be a complete {{Jerkass}}, and Erzulie manipulates Ti Moune and Daniel solely so that she can prove that she's right. They were even worse in the original book - the musical tries to make them a bit more sympathetic, whereas in the book Agwe delivers a speech about how much humans deserve to die, and Erzulie kills a completely innocent woman.

* Thor [[AdaptationalVillainy of all people]] in ''Film/{{Vikingdom}}'' is depicted as a bloodthirsty madman who is furious that humanity (well, the Norsemen at least) turned his back on the old gods and began gathering many artifacts that would merge the mortal realm, Hel and Valhlla, effectively destroying all that exists to punish humans. He is also a BadBoss too, when his mortal followers (who initially joined him in the belief they would restore the good old days) realize what he intends to do and protest, he says he doesn't care what happens to them and violently puts them in their place when they attempt to turn on him.
