* Living in the world of ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' means being caught in a ForeverWar between [[GodIsFlawed flawed]] (at best) and [[GodOfEvil psychopathic]] (at worst) gods to shape the future of worlds you are forever denied the chance to live in, so it's understandable that plenty of people turn their back on the whole system and try to bring down the whole pantheon. It's implied that this rarely works, but sometimes warriors who do this have been able to buy more time for the world that they came from to live on.

It could be that the CosmicPlaything has had enough and shouts WhosLaughingNow It could be someone who believes they can do a better job [[GodJob being God]]. It could be that [[JerkassGod God is a jerk]] [[GodIsEvil or even ]] [[GodOfEvil evil]]. It could be something as complicated as the higher planes of existence are revealed to be run like a mad, hopelessly bureaucratic corporation -- [[CelestialBureaucracy too concerned with rules, regulations, and maintaining the]] BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil to give a damn about the helpless mortals stuck in the middle. It could also be something as simple as {{revenge}} or, even simpler, [[BloodKnight a search for a good fight.]]

Often used alongside HeavenAbove, where a Rage Against The Heavens is visualized by having a character rant at the clouds as if God was hiding behind them.

* Guts, the main character of ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', spends more than a year hunting and killing the demonic Apostles, the subordinates to the [[BigBad God Hand]]. It hasn't been made clear if a [[DevilButNoGod supreme deity higher than the God Hand]] exists, but if it does, Guts has requested that it to leave him the hell alone.

** The main villain from VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition is pretty much the walking embodiment of this trope; As one of THE original magisters who entered the Black City (In fact the same one from the previous Dragon Age II DLC) he not only lost his belief in the Maker and the Old Gods, and resolves to ''become the Maker himself'' in His stead, by essentially blasting a massive hole in the barrier between the spirit world and the living world. [[spoiler: Even his final words, while apparently a plea, still hold a heavy dose of raging.]]
