** The gods of the Literature/{{Discworld}} also all have their own. It's mentioned that the gods who endure longest tend to be the ones with the easiest commandments to follow - Offler the Crocodile God, oldest god on the Disc, only has a tiny handful of them and they're mostly about not eating broccoli. By contrast, Nuggan - the principle deity of Borogravia and also the god of Things In Correct Places On Desks - ''started'' with a simple list of commandments, and kept adding to it (mostly to the list of Abominations) until eventually he fell out of favour and faded away, with nothing remaining but the divine equivalent of an echoing voice still listing nonsensical Abominations (the current list of things Nugganites are commanded to avoid is mentioned to include shirts with six buttons, cheese, babies, the colour blue and jigsaw puzzles).

Sweevo, god of cut timber, banned the practice of "panupunitoplasty" (a word he made up) just to mess with people.

The Commandments are a short list of simple rules that must be followed. It's a much simpler system than any rulebook, lawbook or manifesto. The most famous such list of commandments (at least in western culture) is the one known as The Ten Commandments, featured in RealLife Christianity as well as stories about the faith.[[note]]It is widely believed that the Ten Commandments are also common to Judaism, but this is a misconception. In Hebrew, those verses are referred to as "the Ten Statements"; they are in fact made up of ''fourteen'' commandments, and are not even considered of particular importance.[[/note]] However, many other such lists pop up in various media, especially fantasy.

* ''LightNovel/NoGameNoLife'': All sixteen Exceeds (the sentient races of Disboard) are bound by ten inviolable Pledges set up by Tet, the God of Games, upon his/her ascent to being the One True God following the brutal war that destroyed most of the Old Dei (themselves one of the Exceeds, by virtue of Tet surviving).
