* Oz of ''Manga/PandoraHearts'" fame is capable of summoning a good one. Originally believed to belong to Alice, later chapters have revealed him to be the original owner of it. And it's not just a good sinister scythe, but an indicator of awesome action. Whenever the [NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast B-rabbit]]'s Scythe is in his hands, shit's about to go down. After all, when he calls on the power the scythe represents, his nature as an incarnation of destruction shows itself.

* ''VideoGame/{{Smite}}'': Two death deities come armed with scythe. [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Thanatos]] evokes the classical GrimReaper style and wields a massive scythe that deals huge damage. [[Myth/JapaneseMythology Izanami]] has pair of kamas, which is smaller than scythe, but she throws them around like a boomerang and being a Hunter, is capable of dealing continuous damage that hurts a lot.

* While GuildWars2 lacks scythes as a distinct weapon type, a few of their staves are scythes and any staff equipped by a necromancer becomes a shadowy scythe when they attack with it.

* Of course ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' brings us the scythe version of the BFS, creatively called Grand Grimscythe.
* In ''TabletopGame/{{Scion}}'' Japanese Shinigami are shown to wield massive scythes whose blades are nearly the three-quarters the length of the actual handle, and are mentioned to cut not with actual blade-edges, but with the literal supernatural essence of death-- Making the act of hitting one with his own weapon ''entirely pointless'', as they are already dead.
* ''TabletopGame/SLAIndustries'' gives us the 'Dynamic Precision Blades' company's product, the 'flick scythe' - a staff with an extendable scythe blade that oscillates for extra damage

* In ''TabletopGame/DemonTheFallen'' (from the classic ''World of Darkness''), Lucifer fends off Michael with a scythe because it's what's on hand when Michael comes down to break up the fallen's agriculture lesson to the humans. Yes, Michael the Archangel, with a sword, was beaten by Lucifer, with a scythe. Part of that is the symbolism -- angels are ''very'' big on that sort of thing, and a scythe freely given to defend oneself from oppression carries a lot of weight. The scythe in question appears again in the sourcebook ''Houses of the Fallen'', where it's gotten significantly stronger because Lucifer touched it.
