* ''VideoGame/NightInTheWoods'' gives us [[spoiler:the Black Goat, a creature "as black as the space between stars" that lives in a hole in a long-abandoned mine. Unless sated with human sacrifices, he will bring destruction upon the town.]]

*** While sometimes treated as one of the Protogenoi, in some Greek cosmogonies, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaos_(mythology) Chaos]] is treated as the first god. It's also one of the closest things to an EldritchAbomination found in classical mythology, representing formless matter and a sort of timeless, shapeless emptiness. While it's not atypical for natural things to have a divine personification in Greek mythology, the idea of the primordial nothingness being alive just seems ''unwholesome''.

* The Abrahamic God is this to all other religions according to the Bible, going so far as identifying idols worshipped by man as actually lower devils.
** 1 Corinthians 10:20
“But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.”
** It is also a misconception that the Abrahamic God needs any sort of prayer or belief to exist or work, being the I AM THAT I AM, the self-existent one.

* In ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' there are the Elders, the {{Top God}}s who are the parents of the rest of the Pantheon. They're implied to be so ancient that they've seen the universe be born and die multiple times, and plan out the next one to come when it dies. They are also TheOmnipotent and so powerful even Discord fears them and they're so immense they can't manifest inside the mortal universe fully without destroying it by their sheer presence. Thankfully, all five are either benevolent or neutral in nature. They are:
** Fauna Luster, the Goddess of Life, Beginnings, and Empathy. She's known as the Mother of All Things as every single soul is born from her. She ''is'' the Alicorn's domain, but could also be called Pre-Life. She's also Celestia and Luna's mother.
** The Father of All Alicorns, the God of Existence, Wisdom, and Truth. He literally ''is'' Elysium, the resting place of all good souls. He's also Celestia and Luna's father and Fauna Luster's husband.
** Havoc, the God of Mass Hysteria, Fear, and Survival Instinct. He literally ''is'' Tartarus, the resting place of all wicked souls. He's also Discord's father.
** Entropy, the Goddess of Heat Death, Nothingness, and the End. She literally ''is'' Oblivion, the resting place of all those who have been erased from existence. She's also capable [[RetGone erasing anything from existence]] with but a word, and appears to be the most feared of the four due to her power and temperament. She's also Discord's mother.
** Azerhorse, the God of the Unknown (or at least fear of it). He's unique as he's the TrulySingleParent of the [[EldritchAbomination Outer Concepts]], a separate pantheon from the Alicorns and Draconequi's who's main purpose is to make sure mortals don't tamper in things beyond their capability to safely explore. He's also the sibling of one of the Draconequi Elders, as his offspring are their cousins.
** [[TopGod Something]] ''even higher'' than the Elders that ''created'' the four main ones at least is alluded to, not referred to by name. However, she has no bearing on the story and never appears as a result, merely mentioned in passing by Havoc in a discussion by the Elders.

* The Unexplored-Class Materials of ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign'', who represent the fundamental laws of the universe that even gods must follow. For example, they are the reason that Cronus is fated to be killed by Zeus. They are all female, and each of them is associated with a particular color. The Red-Eyed Lady, Wicked Green Woman and Spirit of the Fluttering Yellow Gills are above most of the remaining Unexplored-Class, while [[TopGod the White Queen]] stands above even them. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, the White Queen is also evil. Prior to the start of the series, she forced the other Unexplored-Class to submit to her, giving her complete authority over the entire universe]].

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series has [[GodOfGods Anu]] and [[TheAntiGod Padomay]], the {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s of [[OrderVersusChaos "stasis/order/light" and "change/chaos/darkness"]], respectively. In the primary CreationMyth, their interplay in the great "void" of pre-creation [[TheMaker led to "creation" itself]]. Creation, sometimes anthropomorphized as the female entity "Nir", favored Anu, [[DrivenByEnvy which angered Padomay]]. Padomay killed Nir and [[EarthShatteringKaboom 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 [[OurGodsAreDifferent the Aedra or the Daedra]] depending on their actions during the creation of Mundus, the mortal plane. (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).

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has the C'tan, ancient gods that feed on the lifeforce of stars and predate all sentient life in the universe, and thus the other main gods in the setting [[GodsNeedPrayerBadly who are born from the dreams and emotions of sentient beings]]. Rather than being defeated by the younger gods as is typical of this trope, most of them were instead wiped out [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters by the army of undead robot soldiers they created to help them get rid of the new gods by killing the lifeforms that sustained them]]. Oops.

** The eldest of the gods born from the Warp, the Eldar Pantheon, were doomed by the hubris and hedonism of their own followers. The murderous depravity and debauchery of the Eldar birthed the Chaos god Slaanesh. Slaanesh then slaughtered most of the Pantheon (Cegorach fled into the Webway, Issa was "rescued" by the Chaos god Nurgle, and Khaine was shattered by Khorne).
