** In the [[ScaryBlackMan Yokudan/Redguard]] pantheon, Ruptga, aka "Tall Papa", is the chief deity. He is sometimes associated with Akatosh, but the two are typically treated as separate entities. The biggest difference seems to be that Akatosh participated in Lorkhan's plan to create Mundus, while Ruptga did not "participate or approve" of Sep's (the serpentine Yokudan counterpart of Lorkhan) plan.

** Fitting the "God of Gods" version is Anu, who along with his [[TheAntiGod Anti-God]] "twin brother" Padomay, are the {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s 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).

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Akatosh, the [[DragonsAreDivine draconic]] God of Time, is the chief [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedric]] deity of the [[SaintlyChurch Nine Divines Pantheon]] fitting closely with the "King of Gods" version of the trope. It is said that he was the first being to manifest out of the raw energy of the early universe. To the [[OurElvesAreBetter Altmer (High Elves)]], he is instead Auri-El, the golden eagle god from whom the Altmer (and really all races of Mer) descend.
** In the old [[HornyVikings Nordic]] pantheon, Shor was instead the top god. Shor is the Nordic version of Lorkhan, the TricksterGod who convinced those who would become the Aedra to aid in creating Mundus, the mortal world. Doing so caused them to lose much of their divine power, and in revenge, they [[GodIsDead "killed" Lorkhan]], tore his still-beating heart form his body, and cast it down into the world he made them create where his spirit is forced to wander. To the Nords, Shor is a bloodthirsty warrior king, very fitting for their ProudWarriorRace. While many Nords would come to accept the Imperial pantheon (where Akatosh is the chief deity), many still hold Shor (and his DeityOfHumanOrigin incarnation [[WarGod Talos]]) in extremely high regard.

* ''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: ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' reveals that there ''is'' a king of {{multiverse}}, and ''his mere presence causes Gods of Destruction to freak out''. He also has the power to destroy ''the whole multiverse'', which he later proves.]]

* '''King of the Gods:''' Not that different from the rest of the gods, but he tends to have the benefits of AuthorityEqualsAsskicking in full effect. He's often applicable to YouKillItYouBoughtIt if someone challenges his title. See [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_of_the_Gods this]] article on {{Wikipedia}} for more info on these types.

* Near the end of Creator/RobertAHeinlein's ''Job: A Comedy of Justice,'' Lucifer - [[spoiler: in a desperate attempt to get Yahweh and Loki to stop screwing with reality over a bet -]] appeals to 'the Director' to mandate an end to the central character's troubles. [[spoiler: He mentions in an aside to the main character that the Director's powers are beyond his and Yahweh's, but that the Director is also not Top God.]]

** The [[EldritchAbomination Outer Concepts]] have their own Elder, Azerhorse, who is evidently one of the Draconequi Elder's sibling as the Outer Concepts are the Draconequi's cousins. Though unlike the other four Elders, it normally doesn't do ''anything'' and even created its children ''on accident''. There's a reason Havoc nicknamed it 'the Blind Idiot Concept'. [[spoiler:This is why its spawn have a collective MassOhCrap when it actually ''addresses them'' after being clopped off at how their role in Discord's endgame went and punishes them.]]

* War god Odin is also a king of the gods in Myth/NorseMythology, but when the Norns came the gods themselves [[YouCantFightFate could not escape]]. Odin had no problem with that. You may not be able to escape your fate, but you can meet it with valour. He apparently originally ''wasn't'' king over the Vanir (there were two groups of gods, the Aesir and the Vanir -- Odin was an Aesir), since there was a war between the Aesir and the Vanir, but stories taking place after the war (almost all of them) have him as having authority over Vanir as well.

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'' and ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasy'': The four Chaos Gods are forever battling to establish dominance, though none of them stay at the top for long (and don't ''want'' to, permanent victory would leave them with nothing to do). As they're basically emotion incarnate, this is done both by beating the other gods' followers and by the amount of sentient beings experiencing rage (Khorne), hope (Tzeentch), love/despair (Nurgle) or desire (Slaanesh) in the galaxy. Due to the amount of bloodshed constantly going on, Khorne is usually TopGod by default.

* [[Characters/PokemonGenerationIVFamilies Arceus]] from ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' is the strongest of the (non mega or primal) legendary monsters and said to be the creator of the universe. Furthermore, it spawned the Creation trio and pixie trio, both of which are considered gods in their own right, the former of which are themselves capable of creating and destroying a universe by themselves.
