* The ''E.T.'' example above is made even more explicit in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', where Michelangelo faces a deadline, gets help from the Warners, and is horrified to see that they've painted God as E.T. and Adam as Elliot, and it's too late to change anything because the Pope has arrived. But as the Pope turns out to be Creator/StevenSpielberg, he loves it.

In the Sistine Chapel in Rome, Creator/MichelangeloBuonarroti painted the fresco ''Creation of Adam''. With his right hand outstretched, God floats above Adam to touch the man's fingertip. This famous and iconic image is known not only to art lovers but also to the [[LowestCommonDenominator average television viewer]]. This makes it fair game for allusions, parody, and all sorts of tropey tomfoolery.

The "creation" pose is often used in ComicBooks, {{Webcomics}}, political comics and animated cartoons. Like Michelangelo's [[PietaPlagiarism Pietà]] sculpture, this trope is all in the recognizable arrangement of two figures, although ''Pietà'' tends to be poignant while ''Creation of Adam'' is used more often in humorous contexts.

* Seen in the opening credits of ''Manga/DeathNote'', with the symbolic double-whammy of [[HowDoYouLikeThemApples an apple]] being passed between the KnightTemplar VillainProtagonist and the god-figure. This, though, is half symbolism (since the protagonist's moral decline after receiving the titular ArtifactOfDoom is related to original sin) and half show in-joke (since the god in question is addicted to apples).

Added DiffLines:

* The witch from ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'' makes a wood carving depicting bears in both roles. While the story is set in medieval Scotland, she clearly has some sort of power over time, as she's also carved out a [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory pizza delivery truck]].
