I was thinking of a trope I might call inadvertant paganism or polytheism. My example was how in the Brendan Frasier version of the Mummy, Imhotep essentially has god-like powers, and the movie seems to suggest the reality of the Egyptian pantheon. If the audience gave this some thought, they would realize that this conflicts with their likely Judeo-Christian beliefs, but no one ever seems to bring this up. The trope basically refers to scenarios where within a seemingly real-world setting, the gods of mythology exist. Examples?
