* 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).

* In ''Anime/SaintSeiyaOmega'', it turns out [[BloodKnight Taurus]] [[SelfMadeMan Harbingir]] has quite a bit of this [[DarkAndTroubledPast from his days]] growing up as a StreetUrchin, due to God never answering the prayers of the poor and oppressed. As a result he doesn't really care about who wins the Holy War, as long as he can have a good fight. [[spoiler: This is what drives him to [[IFightForThestrongestSide ultimately side with Athena]], as her forces are usually fewer than her enemies', which means more rivals per capita. And little by little, [[AllLovingHero her ideals]] [[CharacterDevelopment kinda rub on him]]...]]

*''WesternAnimation/JosephKingOfDreams'': In Joseph's DarkestHour, he is all alone in the dungeon. When it's raining inside his cell and any food he'd hoped to have that night was eaten by rats, he climbs as close to the roof of his cell as he can just to ask God what he did to deserve this.
-->'''Joseph''': Oh, God, why are you doing this to me? Do you hear me?! Any kindness you take away. You're the one who gave me the dreams. You brought me the gift! Some gift! My dreams are lies. '''''WHAT HAVE I DONE TO DESERVE THIS?!'''''

* In an episode of ''TheLastKingdom'', Guthrum is in a church in the captured town of Wareham and finds out Alfred has arrived with an army to besiege him, giving him no choice but to seek some kind of temporary peace until his reinforcements arrive. He then overturns the alter and looks upward, demanding that if God was real and had power to strike him down. When nothing happens he mutters ''I thought not" and stalks out.

* The second half of ''Anime/TheTowerOfDruaga'' reveals that the titular tower is [[spoiler: an ancient weapon built to wage war on the gods in heaven. After aquiring the Blue Crystal Rod at the end of the 1st half, Neeba takes control of the tower, activating the top portion, and uses it to do just that - firing great blasts on energy into the heavens, which the gods swiftly return. Of course he is an embodiment of [[GodOfEvil Druaga]] at this point...]]

* In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', the four get so angry at the Pyar gods that even [[GeorgeHarrison George]] thinks nasty things about them. Granted, in this case the Pyars are real and tangible (if enfeebled), so the four are just cautious enough not to say anything out loud—but they sure do complain a lot in their thoughts and via telepathy.
