*''Film/AssassinsCreed2016'': The Spanish Inquisition (the 15th/16th century Templars) considers Aguilar and the other Assassins to be such, and burns them at stake for it. The exact nature of it is vague because it's not really about heresy but about Templars getting rid of their enemies and using this as a public excuse.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Ironclaw}}'' there are several heterodoxies of the Church of S'allumer besides the orthodox Penitence. While the Monophysismites are considered outright heretics for believing that the church's founders actually came from another world.

* In ''Webcomic/SeventySeas'' Lewk is a rogue priest of Lapak who absconded with several holy relics and is relentlessly pursued by the Church's inquisitors. Though most of the time he seems like just a con artist who incorporates religious stuff into his scams.

* Nero rejects the teachings of his church to save his lover, Kyrie, in ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 4''.

* Nero rejects the teachings of his church to save his lover, Kyrie, in ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 4''. It helps that Nero has a better understanding of who Sparda was than the Order's elite, and that Sanctus, the head of the Order, was a power-mad bastard with no understanding of love at all.

** Of course, in this case they have a point: the Chaos Gods reward such activities as bloodshed, betrayal, hedonism, and spreading disease. Faith in the Emperor is just about the only defense Imperial citizens have against Chaos.

->''"With regard to heretics two points must be observed: one, on their own side; the other, on the side of TheChurch. On their own side there is the sin, whereby they deserve not only to be separated from the Church by excommunication, but also to be severed from the world [[KillItWithFire by death]]. "''

** Not so ironically, the Imperial Cult ''really is heresy'', because the Emperor himself preached an [[FlatEarthAtheist Imperial Truth of science, rationality, and enforced disbelief in the Warp]].

Like Lorgar, who was suffering from a HeroicBSOD after the Emperor [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill brutally shattered his desire to worship him by destroying his crown jewel of a city and anyone who refused to leave and reprimanded him and his Legion in public]] when a few members of his Legion came to him about [[GodIsEvil gods who would gladly accept his worship]]...

* In ''Film/{{Kenau}}'': what a lot of Dutch people are, according to the Spanish. The prosecution of protestants is the main reason the Low Countries rose in revolt against Spain. It is also the reason why Kenau's daughter is burned, and triggers her anger against the Spanish so much that she goes from RefusalOfTheCall to JumpedAtTheCall in no time.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Jasnah Kholin, sister to the King of Alethkar, is an avowed atheist in a world where people have trouble even understanding the ''concept'' of not following the major religion. Her uncle Dalinar, who is himself staunchly religious, greatly respects her for being honest instead of pretending for the sake of appearances.
