* The penultimate issue of ''Magazine/{{Dragon}}'' magazine included an article called "Seven Saintly Domains", which made each of the virtues into a ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' clerical domain with suitable spells. A follow-up to the article "Seven Saintly Domains", which did the same thing with the sins.

** Also from Literature/{{Discworld}}, the Library of Unseen University has statues representing the ''nine'' virtues -- the seven mentioned above, plus Tubso and Bissonomy. No one knows what the last two are, since no one practices them anymore.

* In the ''TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness'', all characters have both Vices and Virtues corresponding to the SevenHeavenlyVirtues and SevenDeadlySins. Virtues (such as Charity or Faith) take much more work than Vices to fulfill, but fully restore Willpower when pulled off, as compared to Vices which damage the KarmaMeter (but boost the Willpower stat). In alphabetical order, the seven virtues are: Charity, Faith, Fortitude, Hope, Justice, Prudence, Temperance.

* In ''LightNovel/KumoDesuGaNaniKa'' Skills corresponding to these virtues exist and can be earned or purchased with skill points. They are {{Game Breaker}}s but also warp the user's soul over time to match the virtue, much like the [[SevenDeadlySins sin skills]].

* From Creator/TerryPratchett's Literature/{{Discworld}}: In the country of Lancre, one family went and named their daughters after the SevenHeavenlyVirtues, Faith, Hope, Charity, Prudence so forth. And out of a misinformed sense of continuity, named their sons along the lines of Bestiality, Anger (among others). Subverted, because each of the daughters came to embody the sin opposite of her virtuous name. Meanwhile, despite everything else, Anger is a kind and calm man, while his brother Bestiality is kind to animals. This may hve been part of a long-standing naming tradition: a patriarch of the family is named as Miscegenation Carter.

Other virtues such as Justice or Faith are sometimes substituted for one of the others. The actual list is flexible, but the number seven is the important thing in direct contrast to the SevenDeadlySins. Faith, particularly, serves as the opposite number to Despair (the eighth deadly sin according to OrthodoxChristianity).
