* The MarvelUniverse has the [[http://marvel.wikia.com/One-Above-All_(Multiverse) One Above All]], who is the collective AuthorAvatar. It's above every other CosmicBeing and [[PhysicalGod god-like]] creature in the setting. [[MeaningfulName Of course]].
* The DCUniverse follows a similar route with the Presence.
* In the MarvelUniverse some particularly powerful demons and magical entities are worshipped as gods, or even God, by other beings who are themselves worshipped as deities and have the power to back it up. Shuma-Gorath, for instance, has relied on numerous gods and demons to do its bidding and has a massive power difference to back it up. Mephisto and Sataanish, demons who in their own realms are nigh-omnipotent, are said to be like "mice in a great temple" compared to even one of Shuma-Gorath's ''weaker'' forms. It is the ruler of literally hundreds of universes and worshipped in thousands more, so the fact that it is a GodOfEvil makes its power particularly worrying.

* ''{{Exalted}}'' '''used''' to have Theion, Divine Tyrant of the [[OurTitansAreDifferent Primordials]], the beings that created the gods, but then the Exalted [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu killed some of them and crippled the rest]], letting the Unconquered Sun become the King of the Gods.
* In ''{{Dragonlance}}'', Highgod is the supreme being analogous to Yahweh who created the other gods.

** Most of our knowledge of the Germanic pantheon comes from Iceland, the last Germanic region to be Christianized. Scattered fragments and reports from Christian scholars in earlier pagan Germanic regions suggest that, like the Greeks, many Germanic peoples saw their Thunder God, (Thor, Thunor, Donar), as their chief god.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'' loves this one. Some planets have a God, then there are their bosses, the four Kaioh (Kings of Worlds) that rule over the four galaxies, the Dai-Kaioh that leads the four Kaiohs, the four Kaiohshin (God Kings of Worlds) that are over the Kaiohs and rule over the four quadrants of the Universe '''and''' the afterlife, plus their boss Dai-Kaiohshin, making this dude a King of Gods of Gods of Gods. And then ''Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods'' revealed that the Kaiohsin and the Dai-Kaioshin are the Gods of Creation balanced out by the God of Destruction. The God of Destruction also has a mentor who is much stronger and it is revealed there are twelve universes, a God of Destruction for each. [[spoiler: ''Dragon Ball Super'' reveals that there ''is'' a king of multiverse, and ''his mere presence causes Gods of Destruction to freak out''.]]

** Later works muddle the picture somewhat [[spoiler:with the implication the The Great Will is a separate kind of deity all of it's own that is ruling the Amala Multiverse while YHVH is just the Great Will's most well known avatar. ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVFinal'' even implies that the Great Will is actually benevolent and that YHVH is a rogue element. However, problematically, the Great Will ''doesn't'' have the ability to remove YHVH from his seat...]]

** It got worse when it's revealed in ''TheThanosImperative'' that Shuma-Gorath is merely one member of an ''entire pantheon'' of these things called the Many-Angled Ones.

* The Judeo-Christian God could be considered a god of gods [[CallARabbitASmeerp if you consider the angels and demons as lesser gods, which would make the Archangels as kings of the gods.]] Early Jewish thought seemed to consider ''all'' gods as being real, but all except Yahweh are evil impostors, with Yahweh being the one true god. Later though, in Jeremiah, God only refers to some of the gods as actual creatures that he will punish, like Amon, while most, like Chemosh, are idols based on someone's imagination. Orthodox Christianity Sacred Tradition confirms that other (pagan) gods are merely disguises for demons, though it states that our (humanity and angels) task is to ''become gods'' through obedience to God and atonement, which allows Him to do that.
