* WonderWoman's "Great Hera!"
** Amusingly [[PlayingWithATrope played with]] in ''Comicbook/YoungJustice''. While at a concert, the girls get in line for the bathroom, and it's a ''very'' long line. In exasperation, Wonder Girl yells out "Hera help us!", and the next second, a giant monster bursts from the ground. All the other girls scatter in fear, Wonder Girl decks it with one punch, and the girls skip over the monster's body with a clear shot to the bathroom, sing-songing "thaaaank you, Hera!" as they go. Apparently the Wonders say it because Hera's listening!
** WonderWoman's other comics CatchPhrase is "Suffering Creator/{{Sappho}}!" Not a God (although in the DCUniverse, she could be!), but classic nonetheless.

* Though the religion in question is actually a sect of Christianity, the Church of Humanity Unchained, from Literature/HonorHarrington's adopted planet Grayson, evolved a doctrine that was in many ways a reaction to their DeathWorld. As a result, epithets for God on Grayson include the Tester, the Comforter, and the Intercessor. The phrase "Sweet Tester" is quite common.
** Specifically, it's a different way of envisioning the HolyTrinity - "Tester, Intercessor, and Comforter" = "Father, Son, and Holy Ghost/Spirit."
