It isn't Evil in either sense, or even a Jerkass God. It is simply insane. Its mad throes create and destroy in equal measure, leading to untold chaos. That there is a universe at all is usually due to it being Sealed Evil in a Can, dormant, or so damned god random that it's been less destructive over the past few aeons.

Expect the Nietzsche Wannabe to consider it beyond good and evil, or that it follows Blue and Orange Morality that anyone can understand... if you just gaze into the abyss of madness long enough.

    The Gods Must Be Crazy... is actually a film! Welp.
    • The protagonist of The Gods Must Be Crazy assumes this is why a Coke bottle falls out of the sky into his primitive village, having never seen a Coke bottle before.
    • Monstrous Regiment: Nuggan, despite being dead, manages to effectively behave in this way, forbidding babies, the color blue, and other absurd things.

    The Gods of Chaos from Warhammer/Warhammer40000, especially Tzeench. All Chaos Gods are liable to randomly turn their followers to gibbering piles of tentacles, or give their followers or daemons seemingly random tasks, but Tzeench turn it up to eleven. He's an insane Chessmaster who is contantly weaving extremely complex schemes that more often than not contradict eachother, and that ultimately have no point at all (scheming is what he does and his goal in itself. It is said that if he ever got his plans to completion, he would stop existing).
