Since most people imagine God as an bearded old man
, naturally the antithesis of this would be having the supreme ruler of the universe be a young girl instead. Creators will sometimes do this to subvert a viewer's expectations, especially in works heavy with Epileptic Trees
and Mind Screw
Compare to Token Deity
for other unlikely gods, and Goo Goo Godlike
for other improbably powerful kids.
Anime & Manga
- In The Sandman, the Lord of Chaos Shivering Jemmy manifests as a young blonde girl with a balloon.
- It is implied in Demon: The Fallen fluff that the (old) World of Darkness' God is a girl. Since the Fallen are pretty much the only still-living beings who have actually seen God at the dawn of time, their word can be trusted.
- An old, discontinued webcomic, Acid Reflux, had a little girl get her own (used) universe as a present. Her name, of course, was "God." Much humor occurs when she's sucked into said universe, a sort of high fantasy pastiche.
