* ''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.

Her uncle Dalinar, who is himself staunchly religious, greatly respects her for being honest instead of pretending for the sake of appearances. Dalinar himself starts drifting into heresy by the third book as he discovers how far off the mark the Vorin faith's teachings are.

* Seen every now and then in ''TabletopGame/{{Eberron}}'' concerning the [[CrystalDragonJesus Church of the Silver Flame]]. Occasional Dark Six cults might qualify as this within the Sovereign Host.

* Seen every now and then in ''TabletopGame/{{Eberron}}'' concerning the [[CrystalDragonJesus Church of the Silver Flame]]. Occasional Dark Six cults might qualify as this within the Sovereign Host. The Sacred Spark is unusual in that they worship ''both'' one of the Sovereign Host and one of the Dark Six as two sides of the same coin, and so are seen as heretics by most devout of the Sovereign Host ''and'' the Dark Six[[note]]many devout Vassals ''do'' occasionally send prayers in the direction of one of the Dark Six -- it is suggested the two were originally one pantheon, at least insofar as people worshipped them -- but not on the order of actual worship.[[/note]]

* In ''VideoGame/PathOfExile'', Elreon was banished for his heretical views, notably that thaumaturgy isn't inherently evil and Vol was an idiot for trying to destroy magic. The Templar player character is also derided as a heretic, though the nature of his heresy is vaguer.

* In ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'', heretics can be found in the sixth circle of Hell. Their punishment is to lie in flaming tombs. The ones we see are there because they were Epicureans, which was considered heresy because Epicurus's deistic beliefs (he thought that the gods lived far off and paid no attention to mortal lives, and that [[CessationOfExistence the soul died with the body]]) contradicted major points of Christian doctrine.

* In ''Film/{{Kenau}}'': what a lot of Dutch people are, according to the Spanish. The persecution 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.
* ''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.

*** Actually subverted in the case of the Nerevarine prophecy -- while the Temple considers it a folk superstition and persecutes the Ashlanders who believe it, when you actually show up and start fulfilling the prophecy, you get a letter from the local Archcanon. You see, they're not sure if you're a legitimate reincarnation of St. Nerevar ... so they're going to do their damnedest to try and kill you, as a sort of test. If you really are the Nerevarine, something so petty as a full inquisitorial process could hardly keep you from fulfilling your prophecies, now could it?

* Roa from ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' got excommunicated for becoming a vampire on his quest for immortality. He then got excommunicated [[UpToEleven by the vampires]] for reasons unexplained.

TheHeretic is a traitor to TheChurch and/or its {{Canon}}. Most commonly, he was once a member of its congregation or even its [[GoodShepherd clergy]] but got officially excommunicated for propagating beliefs that go against TheChurch's official dogma. Often, the Church sends out [[KnightTemplar Knights Templar]] to [[KillItWithFire Kill Them With Fire]] along with [[BurnTheWitch witches]]. Just being a heretic doesn't mark you evil by default: A heretic to a SaintlyChurch is often ChaoticEvil, but a heretic to a CorruptChurch or a PathOfInspiration may well be a DefectorFromDecadence.[[EvilVersusEvil Or just as bad as them.]]

** 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]]...which in and of itself [[NiceJobBreakingItHero did about jack shit]] since the Chaos Gods [[AnthropomorphicPersonification only need people to feel emotions to gain power]], and all it did was leave some of the most powerful of his warriors either ignorant or underestimating their insidious ways until it was too late. 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]]...
