** The Aedra sacrificed a large portion of their divine power in order to create the mortal world. They were originally many in number, but only 8 survived the creation of Mundus. (And depending on the story, even they did not truly "survive," but they [[GodIsDead are dead]] and "dreaming the are alive.") These 8 are known as the "Divines" and would become the primary deities worshiped by the [[SaintlyChurch Church of the Divines]]. Their sacrifice has [[HaveYouSeenMyGod left them weak]], and thus they prefer [[MysteriousWays a lighter touch]] in dealing with the mortal world, most often acting through mortal agents.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' offers several deities who created "creation" itself and then created the mortal plane, Mundus. To note:
** Anu and Padomay. "Twin brothers" who are the {{Anthropomorphic Personifications}} of the primordial forces of [[OrderVersusChaos "stasis/order/light" and "change/chaos/darkness"]], respectively. The series' primary CreationMyth states that their interplay in the great "void" of pre-creation led to creation itself. Creation, sometimes anthropomorphized as the female entity "Nir", favored Anu, [[DrivenByEnvy which angered Padomay]]. Padomay killed Nir and [[EarthShatteringKaboom shattered the twelve worlds]] she gave birth to. Anu then wounded Padomay, presuming him dead. Anu salvaged the pieces of the twelve worlds to create one world: Nirn. Padomay returned and wounded Anu, seeking to destroy Nirn. Anu then [[TakingYouWithMe pulled Padomay and himself outside of time]], ending Padomay's threat to creation "forever". From the [[PiecesOfGod intermingling of their spilled blood]] came the "et'Ada", or "original spirits", who would go on to become either the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedra or the Daedra]] depending on their actions during creation. (Some myths state that the Aedra come from the mixed blood of Anu and Padomay, while the Daedra come purely from the blood of Padomay).
** One of these spirits, said to have been "begat" by Padomay, was Lorkhan (also [[IHaveManyNames known by many other names]]). Depending on the version of the myth, he convinced/tricked some of the other et'Ada into helping him create the mortal plane, known as Mundus. (The races of [[OurElvesAreBetter Mer, or Elves]], generally believe this was a cruel trick that robbed their ancestors of their pre-creation divinity while the races of Men believe it was a good thing, releasing the spirits from eternal stasis.) Those et'Ada who sacrificed large parts of their being to create Mundus became known as the Aedra ("Our Ancestors" in [[ClassicalTongue Old Aldmeris]]), while those that did not participate became the Daedra ("Not Our Ancestors"). For his treachery, the Aedra [[GodIsDead "killed" Lorkhan]] and tore out his "[[CosmicKeystone divine center]]" (heart), which they cast down into the mortal world he helped to create. His spirit then wandered Mundus, occasionally taking [[GodInHumanForm physical mortal forms]], known as "[[EternalHero Shezarrines]]" after Lorkhan's Imperial name, Shezarr.

** Ultimate Reed Richards also creates a pocket universe, one that's positively utopian... then tries to sue it to replace the real world. Oh, and he's actually called 'The Maker'.

* Myth/ClassicalMythology has several gods responsible for different aspects of the world. For instance modern humans were created by Prometheus... who is generally considered to have done a poor job (because he had to throw something together at the last minute after his co-creator used all the good traits on other animals).

* In ''VideoGame/TerraBattle'', the world is dying and you lead a band of adventurers to seek The Maker, who lives in the world's core, to save the world. Then halfway through you find out the true identity of the Maker: [[spoiler: A gigantic, sentient, living spaceship called Animata. It burrows into planets, collect DNA from the living beings, then use them to create its own creatures.]] It sustains itself by absorbing life energy of its own creations, sometimes through a sacrifice. The reason why the world is dying is because Palpa, the sacrifice, has not been sacrificed yet, thus not providing it with any energy.
