* The worship of [[GodOfEvil Skotos]] in ''The Literature/{{Videssos}} Cycle'' is definitely this, heavily featuring human sacrifice and backing a brutally expansionistic empire. Somewhat deconstructed in that it's pointed out that Skotos-worship has very little staying power under most circumstances; it's actually very philosophically shallow, with it's only real substance being that it gives its adherents carte blanche to be assholes, and it turns out that even the most self-centered people typically want more from life than that. The religion tends to really take root (as it did in aforementioned empire, Yezd) only in the presence of its HighPriest, the immortal EvilSorcerer Avshar, largely because he's [[TheDreaded sufficiently scary]] that nobody wants to invoke his wrath by refusing him. Avshar himself serves Skotos from a mix of [[StrawNihilist his belief that the world is inherently rotten and deserves to be punished]] and a desire to make a point in a centuries-old debate with the priests of [[GodOfGood Phos]] that only he remembers or cares about anymore.

* A ''FanFic/AFathersWrath'' takes the Naruto example from above in Anime & Manga and multiplies it, here Jashin is shown to have many more followers than just Hidan and The BigBad is one of them as well, giving Jashin a backstory of how he was once a mighty conqueror who when struck down by The Sage of Six Paths was made into and worshipped as a God by his surviving army.

** The Cathedral of the Deep, centered around the sadistic cannibal Aldrich, the so-called Saint of the Deep. As he indulged in his appetites to the point of "luxuriating in his victims' screams", he devolved into an EldritchAbomination and had the brilliant idea to ''eat the gods themselves'' as well, successfully consuming Gwyndolin, Gravelord Nito and the Witch of Izalith. His deacons sacrifice Hollows to feed him in the defiled Cathedral of Anor Londo, and his co-deity Rosaria, Mother of Rebirth, leads the current equivalent of the Darkwraith Covenant. Its leader, [[SinisterMinister Pontiff Sulyvahn]], was a nobody who stumbled upon [[{{Hellfire}} the Profaned Flame]] under Irithyll, and used it and Aldrich himself as a prop. He kicks everyone he doesn't like or could threaten his authority into the Outrider Knights, sending them away from Irithyll equipped with [[ArtifactOfDoom rings that madden their users into feral beasts]], and he was the one who had Aldrich moved to Anor Londo when he revived and was the one to feed Gwyndolin to the monster.
