*** There's also Zuggtmoy, who isn't truly a real goddess, but a demon lord with dominance over fungus... Which is the whole problem. She has a ''very'' hard time attracting worshippers, because there isn't much she can offer mortals. This has caused her to make foolish mistakes which have let far more powerful evil gods like Tharizdun take advantage of her in her attempts to gain power. Without a doubt, the biggest threat that was caused because of this was ''The Temple of Elemental Evil'', an adventure that was ranked the 4th greatest of all time by ''Dungeon'' magazine in 2004, on the 30th anniversary of the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' game. (Still doesn't change the fact that the ending turned out ''very'' bad for Zuggtmoy.)

* ''MagicTheGathering'': In the Kamigawa block, the short version of the story is that the Gods are pissed, and out of [[ChewBubblegum bubblegum.]] The set's flavor was influenced by Shinto, so there are Kami for everything, from Cleansing Fire and Infinite Rage to... Pus and Painted Roads.

** Caliban, the Demon of Anorexia

(On the rulebook gives a GM the ability to assign these to players. Some examples:
** Caliban,
other hand, Lucifer enjoys giving bizarre Words as punishments -- just ask Imbap, the Demon of AnorexiaStale Bong Water.) Angels are much more likely to have strange Words when they reflect personal obsessions. Some of the weirder examples on both sides:
** Druiel, the ''Angel'' of Teenage Death
** Fulrick, the Demon of Pencil Shavings
** Jorek, the Demon of Goth Wannabes
** [[Webcomics/SluggyFreelance Kizke]], the Demon of Internet Comics



** Thratch, the Demon of Snappy Comebacks You Only Think Of After It's Too Late



** Zuheyr, the Angel of Cleanliness
** Connor, the Angel of Cooking



** Fleurity, the Demon Prince of Drugs



** Karne, the Demon of Fast Food
** Imbap, the Demon of Stale Bong Water, who serves as an object lesson to Demons: Don't pester Lucifer for a Word because he may just give you one.

* Rokugan (the setting of ''TabletopGame/LegendOfTheFiveRings'') has the Fortunes. Interestingly, the Emperor can name anyone a Fortune, and that makes it a reality. However, as an Emperor cannot overturn a decree made by a previous Emperor... which can be quite the mess if an Emperor decides to name you, for example, the Fortune of Torture or of Cockroaches.

* ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vext Vext]]'' was a short-lived series from [[TheDCU DC Comics]] about the God of Mishap and Misfortune. It included a number of other small-time godlings, including the deities of uninvited guests, relationships gone hellishly wrong, incessant nagging, and ill-timed flatulence.

* One of the most powerful characters in ''TheTick'' is The Mighty Agrippa, Roman God of the Aqueduct. According to the series canon, he's the last god to join the Roman Pantheon; but when he showed up [[{{Gotterdammerung}} the rest had left for another planet.]] Despite being a low-ranking god, he's still a PhysicalGod and one of the strongest beings in the series.
