* Invoked with Whiskers from ''VideoGame/{{TinkerQuarry}}''. His [[OurSoulsAreDifferent Essence]], Risk, looks like a die.
* King Dice from ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'' is the wicked, [[NonHumanHead die-headed]] manager of the Devil's Casino. Although he works as an enforcer for the Devil, he does enjoy making bets with him. He bets that Cuphead and Mugman won't succeed in getting the soul contracts that the Devil wants, and when they ''do'', he is not happy. He proceeds to fight Cuphead and Mugman, forcing them to play a dice game and fight his QuirkyMinibossSquad of living gambling paraphernalia.

* In UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}} Franchise/DCUniverse, two gambling aliens named Rokk and Sorban force {{Superman}} and TheFlash to race to the edge of the galaxy and back, so they can settle a bet on which one is fastest. To keep things interesting, they imprison the rest of the Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}}, and promise to destroy the home city of the loser. (It turns out these are actually two of the Flash's arch-enemies, disguised as the aliens--who are back on their home planet betting on volcanic eruptions.)

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series' lore, Sai, the DeityOfHumanOrigin God of Luck celebrated in the Iliac Bay region, is associated with gambling. Sai was BornLucky, with the uncanny ability to spread good luck to others but not to himself. After he was killed in battle (while all of his fellow soldiers survived), he was resurrected and granted immortality by Ebonarn, the Iliac Bay WarGod, so that he may continue to spread his good luck and help to balance the world. "Sai's Disease" is essentially gambling addiction. Those afflicted are driven to incessant gambling, seeking proof of Sai's favor.

* The D'Arby brothers from ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Jojo's Bizarre Adventure]]'', whose Stand powers allow them to take the souls of losers. Interestingly, the two use opposing styles: the elder D'Arby mostly makes use of cheating to win, and is very good at recognizing attempts by others to cheat as well. He's defeated by Jotaro performing the mother of all bluffs against him (no cheating happening). The younger relies more on actual skill at games, and is defeated by Jotaro and Joseph cheating to win the game (this despite D'Arby being a LivingLieDetector).
