* ''Literature/{{Tasakeru}}'': The [[PettingZooPeople eight sentient species']] cultures all originated from worship of the same three Gods, but each species developed a different set of beliefs over time.

* ''Franchise/DragonAge'': more than one religion overall, but you only get one religion per race - there is no sense that any particular person could ever be a different religion from the one they are. The human religion, that of The Maker and the Prophet Andraste has some subdivisions, but these are clearly marked as 'real religion' and 'evil cult' so don't really represent religious diversity. The narrative itself (and the Warden, if you choose) can be read as having a subtle athiestic bias.

** It's interesting to note that, apparently as a result of being raised on the surface by exiled nobles from Orzammar, Varric Tethras is ostensibly non-religious, but frequently will invoke both the Dwarven Ancestors ''and'' Andraste's name. It is confirmed in DragonAgeInquisition that Varric is in fact Andrastian, although he doesn't often bring up the fact that he sincerely believes.

* In "Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda", the Triforce seems to be used universally and everyone seems to adhere to the same legends, yet each race is mainly seen worshipping deities separate from the Golden Goddesses - usually protector spirits like Jabu-Jabu or Valoo, but other ones as well, like the Ocean King or Hylia or the Desert Colossus. It's possible these all form a unified pantheon hierarchy, but that's never been made explicit.

* In all ''{{VideoGame/Tropico}} games except Tropico 2, the only religion is the Catholic Church. This is justified since the games are set on Spanish-speaking islands in the Caribbean, which are very much Catholic country.

* ''LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima'' played with this, in the fact that humans have one religion, based off on CrystalDragonJesus version of Christianity in the FantasyCounterpartCulture of Vatican, Romalia. However, it is not the ''only'' religion per se, as the [[OurElvesAreDifferent Elvens]] follow a different one. This becomes a plot point in the third season.

* ''ASongOfIceAndFire'': Though its stated that there many gods worshipped in many parts of the world, the following five religions are most prominently featured and have had major impacts on the plot: the nameless, faceless [[NatureSpirit old gods]] that are worshipped in the North and beyond the Wall; the [[TheChurch Seven Faced God]], also called the new gods, in the rest of mainland Westeros; the [[WarGod Drowned God]] in the Iron Islands; [[CrystalDragonJesus R'hllor]], also called the Lord of Light, is popular in Essos but only has few followers in Westeros (House Baratheon of Dragonstone and the Brotherhood without Banners); the Faceless Men of Braavos worship the [[CrossoverCosmology Many-Faced God]], a god of death that all other gods are avatars of.

* ''ASongOfIceAndFire'': Though its stated that there There are so many gods worshipped worshiped in many parts of the world, the that there's [[Characters/ASongOfIceAndFireDeitiesAndReligions a character subpage]] for religion alone. The following five religions are most prominently featured and have had major impacts on the plot: the plot:
** The
nameless, faceless [[NatureSpirit old gods]] that are worshipped worshiped in the North and beyond the Wall; the Wall. There's no organized clergy, so worship is done in front of weirwood trees with faces carved in them.
** The
[[TheChurch Seven Faced God]], also called the new gods, in the rest of mainland Westeros; Westeros. The seven avatars of the god are the Father, the Mother, the Warrior, the Maiden, the Smith, the Crone and the Stranger. Its loosely based on the Medieval Roman Catholic Church.
** The
[[WarGod Drowned God]] in the Iron Islands; Islands is a violence god of the sea who charges his followers with pirating the mainland. The Drowned God is opposed by the Storm God.
**
[[CrystalDragonJesus R'hllor]], also called the Lord of Light, is popular in Essos but only has few followers in Westeros (House Baratheon of Dragonstone and the Brotherhood without Banners); Banners). R'hllor demands HumanSacrifice and (apparently) gives his priests/priestesses various powers. His ArchEnemy is the Great Other.
** The
Faceless Men of Braavos worship the [[CrossoverCosmology Many-Faced God]], a god of death that all other gods are avatars of.

* ''{{BattleTech}}'': Most 20th-century human religions have survived into the 31st century just fine and the Catholic Church at least has even found itself sprouting a whole new branch -- New Avalon Catholicism --, if somewhat by accident. (A breakdown in communications during the fall of the Star League regarding a temporary transfer of Papal authority away from occupied Earth had something to do with it.)

** Hawke also appears to show acceptance of multiple, diverse faiths. Despite being nominally Andrastian, Hawke nonetheless aids Merrill in performing several Dalish rituals, in ''Legacy'' offers a Dwarven prayer after recovering the body of Varric's ancestor in the Deep Roads, works with the Qunari on numerous occasions and in ''Mark of the Assassin'', while also mentioning offhand that their family was one of the few that the Chasind Wilders chose to trade with in Lothering.
