* ComicBook/{{Lucifer}} ends with [[spoiler: Elaine Belloc, the new omnipotent God]], choosing to do this, because having seen how the old way of doing things has gone wrong, and recognising that an omnipotent being should not [[ProtagonistCentredMorality be personally doing favours for individual people they personally care about at the expense of others]], the best way to avoid this is to merge with the universe rather than sit on high and rule it in a top-down way.

->''"The fact that we exist is proof that God is motivated to act in some way. And since only the challenge of self-destruction could interest an omnipotent God, it stands to reason that we . . . are [[TitleDrop Godís debris]]."''\\

* NeonGenesisEvangelion exposes this when it's revealed that [[HumansAreCthulhu humans are Angels]] who made themselves dominate the Earth, and driving all others deep underground. By extent, all humans are made of the same elements ([[AppliedPhlebotinum LCL]]) separated by their drive to be unique with the power of [[SentientCosmicForce AT Fields]]. The reason everyone seems normal is because [[PlatonicCave they themselves define what's normal]], unlike [[EldritchAbomination Angels]]. Children, preferably before adulthood, are the most likely to harness AT fields because [[ChildrenAreInnocent they don't know what reality is yet]].

-- '''Scott Adams''', ''GodsDebris''

{{Pandeism}} is a theological theory which proposes that a creator (not necessarily a 'god') created our physical Universe by ''becoming'' [[PiecesOfGod the Universe]]. This creator currently exists as an unconscious or otherwise nonintervening (unable to intervene) Energy sustaining all motion in the Universe. Various explanations have been introduced as to why this happened, mostly revolving around the creator needing to learn something through the human experience, or perhaps [[GodIsDead wishing to experience nonexistence itself]]. The latter is the device used in Scott Adams' book ''GodsDebris''. Variations also speculate as to our purpose, and whether the creator will ever go back to being what it was before, and whether we will have a part in that.

* {{Deconstructed}} in an absolutely [[NightmareFuel nightmarish way]] in ''DungeonsAndDragons''. [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Atropus, the World Born Dead]] is the remains of the Creator who sacrificed itself to create the multiverse. It's a planet-sized petrified zombie god-head that looks like it's perpetually screaming. It ''regrets'' dying to create the Universe as it has been [[AndIMustScream in perpetual dying pain ever since]], and is now seeking to return everything to it to end the pain... by bringing cosmic undeath to all. Whenever Atropus pass near a planet, People Do Not Stay Dead When They Are Killed, eventually turning the entire planet into ZombieApocalypse.
* This is the true nature of Primordials in ''{{Exalted}}''. They created Creation by contributing parts of themselves to the reality to be born. The biggest contributor of this is Gaia, who had nearly her entire body turned into Creation. Due to this, the Primordials can't leave this world. And if you ''somehow'' manage to [[KillTheGod kill a Primordial]], Creation will become unstable.
