Strictly speaking in terms of historical cultural significance, gods of love were often considered [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower one of the most powerful members of the pantheon]]. God of love does not just cover romantic love; [[TheFourLoves it covers all types of love]], including [[InLoveWithYourCarnage love for]] [[InterplayOfSexAndViolence violence, war]] (especially with the WarGod) and alcohol (hence why Aphrodite wandered about the battlefield at Troy), and the obsessive kinds that make you [[LoveMakesYouDumb stupid]], [[LoveMakesYouEvil evil]] or [[LoveMakesYouCrazy crazy]]. This makes them gods you never, ever want to cross. Should the gods be considered evil (or at least considered bad in context) they would be GodsOfAdulterersAndHarlots.

* ''Literature/{{Gate}}'' has Rory Mercury, who is the oldest demigod(961 years) in that world under the god of destruction, chaos and war, and she [[BloodKnight loves fighting]] with actual ecstasy just by being close to a battlefield(or simply people fighting). She wanted to become the goddess of love when she upgrades to the god status(at the 1000 year mark of becoming a demigod.) seemingly no other gods have taken up the place in their world.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has two gods of love: One god of sexual love, and one god of parental love. These gods are named Slaanesh and Nurgle, and with ''Warhammer 40K'' being the CrapsackWorld that it is, both gods are genocidal soul-devouring demon-lords with maximized {{Squick}} factor.

* ''[[Creator/ThisIsIt Don't Hug Me I'm Scared]]'' has Malcolm, a gigantic gravel-munching stone head who's worshipped by a talking butterfly and his band of deranged love cultists. It makes about as much sense as it sounds.

* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' had an two-part season finale where the girls were given the powers of the Greek gods, with Phoebe as the goddess of love. Men fell in love with her instantly and she basically created a harem-cult when the power was going to her head.
