* The main religion in the World of the ''Literature/FlyByNightSeries'' has an emphasis on "odd." There are hundreds of Gods, called Beloveds, for every possible job. Some are responsible for glorious tasks, like raising the Sun, delivering messages to dead loved ones, or protecting boats from sinking. Further down the ladder are Beloveds for keeping vegetables fresh and protecting jams and butter from pesky flies.

** Alduin, the BigBad of ''Skyrim'', is specifically the god of "world-eating," or returning the world to it's primordial state so that it can be reborn into a new world. While performing his duties as the World Eater, he is an invincible monster who dwarfs mountains and eats entire countries in a single bite. When he's not, [[BroughtDownToNormal he's simply a very powerful and almost-invincible dragon.]]

* ''{{Okami}}'' features gods of assorted elements, rejuvenation, explosions, cutting, the Sun and Moon, and Kabegami, the god of ''walls''. The game is based on Shinto, which has rather a lot of gods. When one wishes to refer to all of the Shinto gods collectively in Japanese, one speaks of "the eight million gods".[[note]]And that's not a strict limit, either. "Eight million" is an archaic Japanese euphemism for "a vast, possibly infinite number", the same way forty is used in the Bible.[[/note]]
