** Subverted in the case of Agnes Nutter. During her execution for being a witch, Agnes raises her head and appears to be badmouthing the Heavens over her fate. Fast forward to when the scene is revisited in the last third of the book with a different viewpoint character having an out of body experience. Turns out Agnes was actually calling HIM out as he floated above the stake she was tied to.

* 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.

* The Courier in ''Machinima/CouriersMindRiseOfNewVegas'' often does this, while bemoaning the many [[DiabolusExMachina improbably placed hazards he and his gang run into]].
--> '''The Courier:''' Trust me, these guys are bad news. We're going to want to stay away from them. And we just walked into a nest, because of course we did. Why would god only put one those thing there, when he can put a dozen more? Same logic applies to geckos, feral ghouls, and what ever other nasty shit that can try and kill us.
--> (Upon seeing the giant man eating geckos ''breath fire'') '''The Courier''' "Whoever's in charge of this mortal realm is displeased with humanity's recovery after 200 years of getting shat on."

* Early on in ''Let It Ride'', Jay Trotter, while at the race track, prays to God and asks for just one good day at the track, because he feels he's do. Later, during the first race, when the horse he's bet on is running behind, Trotter looks up at the sky and screams, "I thought we had a deal!"

* One of the major villains in ''TheTwelveKingdoms'' stages a rebellion against the monarchy of the kingdom he lives in and, by extension, the setting's rule-by-divine-appointment system. His ultimate motivation for his actions is eventually revealed as being an attempt to get the PowersThatBe to prove their existence by [[SmiteMeOhMightySmiter smiting him]].

* It can be said that a great deal of atheists and agnostics could be the result of this, refusing to believe in God or call themselves Christians or any other monotheistic religion due to traumatic experiences that others justified as "acts of God" (i.e. losing their family to some kind of disaster, being abused by religious figures, and so on).
