* In ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', Karthus the Deathsinger joined the Order of the Tallymen of Kindred (a collection of gravediggers, pyre-builders, corpse collectors and carers for the dying who follow [[TheGrimReaper Kindred, the incarnation of death]]) and rose to become quite prominent in the order. Once he decided he could learn no more about death from mortals, he traveled to [[IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace the Shadow Isles]] and transformed himself into an immortal lich who trapped the souls of his victims in an undead state like himself, making him an abomination to Kindred, to whom unnatural prolonging of life beyond one's time is the greatest evil.

The word "heretic" is from a Greek word meaning "to choose," so a heretic can be thought of as a person who chooses his own path. Christian theologian Irenaeus popularized the word heresy in the Christian world in his anti-UsefulNotes/{{Gnostic|ism}} tracts. Multiple heretics often form a {{Cult}}.

The word "heretic" is from a Greek word meaning "to choose," so a heretic can be thought of as a person who chooses his own path. Much like YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters in the political realm, those whom the Church labels "heretics" often claim that they're actually "reformers" or "purifiers". Christian theologian Irenaeus popularized the word heresy in the Christian world in his anti-UsefulNotes/{{Gnostic|ism}} tracts. Multiple heretics often form a {{Cult}}.

** On that note, Shion and Jin, who both are likely to have extensive ties to the Ormus religion - physically beat the crap out of '''ThePope''' at the end of ''Episode II''.

* In ''VideoGame/MedievalIITotalWar'', regions where your faith isn't overwhelmingly dominant may spawn Heretics, or even convert a Priest you have stationed there to heresy. Since Heretics spread heresy and cause religious unrest, it's a good idea to have your Priests subject them to trials and [[BurnTheWitch burn them at the stake]]. If you're Catholic and you ''don't'' deal with Heretics, ThePope will send [[DemonicSpiders Inquisitors]] to your lands to start examining family members.

* In ''VideoGame/CrusaderKings 2'', characters can adopt a variety of historical heresies. They tend to be loathed by anyone from the main religion, and imprisoned and forced to convert back. Unless a very powerful king adopts the heresy...

** Ironically, the Imperial Cult was founded on the teachings of Lorgar, Primarch of the Word Bearers and the ''first'' Primarch to fall to Chaos -- the very first heretic.

[[folder:Film]] * 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.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''[='s=] [[ChurchMilitant theocratic]] [[TheEmpire Imperium of Man]] has a saying: "light your way in the darkness with [[BurnTheWitch the pyres of burning heretics]]." The civil war that almost destroyed it after its founding and put the GodEmperor on life-support is labeled the HorusHeresy, there's an entire Ordo of the [[StateSec Inquisition]] devoted to rooting out heresy, and being executed for heresy is [[EverythingIsTryingToKillYou just one of the many ways to die in the 41st millennium]]. Some would say this can be [[{{Flanderization}} exaggerated]] into an overused {{meme|ticMutation}}, but that would be- "HERESY!" '''*[[BoomHeadshot BLAM]]*'''
