* In Hebrew (of all languages) the expression "אלוהים אדירים/elohim adirim" ("great gods") is sometimes used (though it's not very common, it's not unknown either). It's clearly plural because of the plural adjective. ("Elohim" by itself has the form of a plural but is used for both the singular and the plural, as is the case for a few other words in the language.) The plural here is likely the [[RoyalWe majestic plural]].

** ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' also employs it occasionally for comedic purposes:
*** Goku at one point wonders if he's supposed to thank God, Kami, or King Kai, and later exclaims "Oh my Gami-kai."
*** Krillin exclaims "Thank our green god in the Lookout!" and shortly thereafter "Oh, Great Green Goddammit!"
*** Piccolo has a brilliant one, saying "Oh my other me!" at one point, since his other self is Kami, Earth's guardian deity.
*** In the ''Broly'' movie, King Kai swears "Supreme Kai almighty!" when Goku teleports right in front of him.
*** In one of the ''Dragon Ball Super'' shorts, Beerus tells Whis not to play "Dabura's advocate."



* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'':
** This is done twice in the same episode, with an obvious "Oh, my various gods!" by Yugi, and...
--->'''Kaiba:''' Oh. My. Money.\\
'''Yugi:''' Don't you mean "god"?\\
'''Kaiba:''' You worship your thing, I'll worship mine.
** Yami also frequently says things like 'What in Ra's name...' etc. etc.



* ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony'':
** Rainbow Dash combines this trope with ValleyGirl-speak: her default exclamation is "O.M.C.!" (standing for Oh My Celestia).
** In "Mob Wars", Applejack exclaims, "I swear to god... Do we even have gods in Equestria? But I swear..."
* ''WebVideo/YugiohTheAbridgedSeries''
** It gives us the episode where Kaiba and Yugi duel in the semifinals. First, when Yami summons Slifer the Executive Producer...
-->'''Kaiba:''' Oh. My. Money.\\
'''Yami:''' Don't you mean "god?"\\
'''Kaiba:''' You worship your thing, I'll worship mine.
** Yami uses "Holy Ra" and "Mother of Osiris" et al. You know... because he's (Ancient) Egyptian. Bakura also frequently invokes the name of Zorc.
** And then when Kaiba summons Obelisk the Tormentor...
--->'''Yami:''' Oh my various gods.
* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'':
** The show has lots of fun with the fact that "Kami" essentially means "God", and there is a character named "Kami":
--->'''Krillin:''' Oh, thank our great green god in the Lookout!\\
'''Krillin:''' Oh, Great Green Goddammit!
** Piccolo has a brilliant one, saying "Oh my other me!" at one point, since his other self is Kami, Earth's guardian deity.
** Kami even refers to himself in Episode 31 when he sees the damage caused by Garlic Jr., who was [[CurbStompBattle quickly assimilated by Mr. Popo]].
--->'''Kami:''' OH MY ''ME!'' What happened to the lookout?!
** And for Goku, there's confusion because he's been tutored by both Kami ''and'' King Kai, who's also referred to as a God. This from Episode 34 when he finds out Trunks is Bulma's kid:
--->'''Goku:''' Oh my Gamikai!
** In the ''Broly'' movie, King Kai swears "Supreme Kai almighty!" when Goku teleports right in front of him.

* ''Literature/LoneWolf'': Many Sommlending characters will swear "by Kai and Ishir", the god of the Sun and goddess of the Moon, respectively. Kai is mostly popular in Sommerlund, while Ishir is revered over most of Magnamund. The Vassagonians (from the ArabianNightsDays setting of this world) rather invoke their prophet, the Majhan. As for Naar, the GodOfEvil, his name is only ever used for the most obscene curses.
