->'''Thalia''': Wow. Apollo is hot.\\

'''Thalia''': That's not what I meant.
-->-- ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''

When the [[OurGodsAreGreater gods]] are divine in their beauty as well as power, they've earned the right to be called a Hot God.

Invariably, a LoveGoddess is ''always'' a Hot God. Note also that several goddesses (from a multitude of pantheons) were seen as befitting of the LadyOfWar[=/=]AmazonianBeauty archetypes, so it seems divine power may be telling of [[PowerIsSexy how attractive power is]].

Of course, gods are supposed to be models that concepts are based on, so whatever concept they represent is one that they have, a thousand times more than any mortal could. So it would be a no-brainer that a goddess of love - or beauty, fertility, marriage, or pretty much any concept related to human interaction - would have unearthly beauty.

See the related AngelicBeauty for the divinely beautiful on the lower end of the cosmic totem pole. Consequently, see HornyDevils and HotAsHell for a Hot God's infernal rivals in looks.

{{Not to be confused with}} [[SweetBroAndHellaJeff something that you put jelly on]]... except in [[FetishFuel very]] ''[[FetishFuel specific]]'' [[FetishFuel fantasies]].

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* The goddesses of ''Manga/AhMyGoddess''.
* [[JerkassGod Zeus]] of ''SaintBeast'' is every bit as good looking as his {{angelic|Beauty}} [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys harem]].
* ''KamisamaKazoku'' is quite possibly full of them.
* LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya. [[EpilepticTrees Maybe]].
* [[spoiler:[[BigBad Father]]]] in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' after [[spoiler:he absorbs Truth and becomes a god, and winds up looking almost exactly like the {{Bishonen}} main brothers and the young version of their father. Perhaps to discourage {{Draco In Leather Pants}}ing, the anime had him [[VocalDissonance keep his old man voice while in that form]]]].
* Suzaku and Byakko in ''FushigiYuugi''. When they're in their human forms, that is.
* [[spoiler:Ultimate Madoka]] from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', specially noteworthy because [[spoiler: Madoka is supposed to just have GenericCuteness as a human, but becomes straight-up ''gorgeous'' when she ascends to godhood.]]
** [[spoiler:She and Demon Homura]] from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion''.
%%* All of the [[Franchise/SailorMoon Sailor Senshi]]. ''All'' of them. Well, okay, not Chibi-Moon yet, but she'll get there. Eventually.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comics]]
* Very, very many in the comics pantheons. In fact, unless they're specifically designed as ugly, they'll be this.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* ''FanFic/TheTwilightChild'': Princess Cadence is mentioned as having the sort of beauty that would "turn even the most intelligent, witty and urbane being into a smiling, dribbling mess on the floor even on an average day". This statement is proven by a scene several chapters earlier when Shining Armor meets her for a Hearts and Hooves Day date, and is momentarily rendered speechless when he sees her.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* [[CelibateHero Hanuman]] from ''TheReturnOfHanuman'' has a HeroicBuild, which might be the reason [[SmittenTeenageGirl a squirrel]] is really attracted to him.
* God [[spoiler:(played by Music/AlanisMorissette)]] in ''{{Dogma}}'' could count as one. Jay mentions when God kissed him, he popped a semi.
* {{Xanadu}}
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* ''{{Elric of Melnibone}}'' stories. The Lord of Law Donblas the Justice Maker and Arioch, a Lord of Chaos.
** Arioch can take many forms, not all of which are appealing.
* ''PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'', being based on GreekMythology and all. The gods have the power to change into whatever they want to look like, but special focus is given on the total hotness of Apollo and Aphrodite.
** It's mentioned that Aphrodite's appearance is different to all who look at her, conforming to that particular person's "idea of true beauty".
* The Valar in ''TheSilmarillion''. In their case they're [[OurSpiritsAreDifferent spiritual beings]] and when they walk among the Children of Eru they regard their bodies the way the Children of Eru regard fine clothes-as something to put on to impress others. In effect their bodies are a kind of ErmineCapeEffect.
* Dweia from ''TheRedemptionOfAlthalus''.
* In ''{{Everworld}}'' pretty much all the gods are described this way, but [[LoveGoddess Aphrodite]], [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Ganymede]] and [[TwoFaced half of]] [[NightmareFetishist Hel]] are particularly notable. The Valkyries are also described as "not so much beautiful as flawless."
* One of the historical [[GodEmperor semidivine sovereigns]] in Fiona Patton's {{Branion}} series was named [[TheMagnificent Alexius the Fair]].
* Aphrodite in Fred Saberhagen's ''BooksOfSwords'' trilogy is not merely extremely beautiful, but appears to whomever sees her as whatever that individual viewer's ideal of female beauty is.
* [[PhysicalGod The Returned]] in ''{{Warbreaker}}'' (not real gods, but close enough and worshipped as such in-universe) are all very physically attractive. It's ultimately revealed that this is because all Returned actually have VoluntaryShapeshifting powers that they're generally unaware of, but that causes them to subconsciously turn into idealized versions of what they looked like as humans prior to ascending.
* Jesus gets this from Naomi Tiberias in the Dramatic Audio version of the Literature/LeftBehind book ''Glorious Appearing'' when she comments to Chang Wong on how handsome He is.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Pretty much every single God ever in ''HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' and ''XenaWarriorPrincess''.
* In season 6 of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', [[spoiler:Castiel]] is acting as God and makes numerous appearances around the globe. One parishoner describes him:
-->We all saw him. No beard, no robe. He was young and… and sexy. He had a raincoat—
** In Season Five, Dean hits on an incredibly hot woman in a red dress at a hotel. She turns out to be the goddess, Kali.
* ''JoanOfArcadia'': Cute Boy God
* On ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer,'' [[GodInHumanForm Glory]] is an evil hell-god in the form of an attractive blonde woman. And she knows it.
* On ''Series/{{Angel}}'' [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans Jasmine]], one of the PowersThatBe incarnated in our universe, had a magic beauty that hypnotized anyone who saw her. [[spoiler:[[GlamourFailure Unless her blood mixed with yours]], in which case you saw her true face]].
* In one episode of ''Series/{{Charmed}}'', after the Titans were released (who were know slouches in this department themselves,) Leo turns the Charmed Ones into Greek Gods to combat them. They were never directly addressed, but Piper seemed to be Hestia, Phoebe was Aphrodite, and Paige was Athena (with a little of Ares's bloodlust thrown in.)
* Many Goa'uld from ''Series/StargateSG1'' tried to [[InvokedTrope invoke this trope]] with their choice of hosts to the point that on several planets being SoBeautifulItsACurse was really a curse.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Mythology and Religion]]
* [[MesopotamianMythology Babylonian]]: Ishtar is the TropeMaker. There isn't really an UrExample that can be defined because it was probably a local god, and writing had not been invented yet.
* [[ClassicalMythology Aphrodite/Venus]] had this as kind of [[LoveGoddess her]] main shtick. She is probably the TropeCodifier because she's what most people today think of when you describe this trope.
** Other hot Greco-Roman gods were Apollo, Dionysus, Hermes, Hera, Ares and... [[TheBeautifulElite well, most of them really.]]
** Hephaestus' claim to fame is that he was the only real aversion among the Olympians. (Hestia might've qualified, but we don't really know--hardly anyone depicted Hestia's appearance, as she was the goddess you worshiped ''constantly'' because her domain was so important, but didn't have any cool stories because [[GoodIsBoring she was the boring, sane one]].)
* UsefulNotes/AztecMythology: Xochiquetzal ("Beautiful Flower"), goddess of youth, prostitutes and musicians. As is for the thus inclined Xochipilli (translated both as "Prince of Flowers" or "Noble Flower"), patron god of homosexuals and male prostitutes.
** Tezcatlipoca was also regarded as one of these, often described as the most youthful-looking and handsome god.
*** One custom of the Aztecs involved selecting a particularly attractive young man to become an ''ixiptla'', "doppleganger" to the god, for an entire year. He would act as Tezcatlipoca's earthly incarnation over its course, be lavished with food and gifts and finery, taught to play music and sing. During the last 20 days of this year, he would be wed to 4 beautiful women (also ixiptlas of the 4 goddesses that were Tezcatlipoca's wives) and be able to lay with them as often as he wanted. On the final day of the year, he would be stripped of his riches, drugged, ascend a temple while breaking a flute on every step of the way, and finally sacrificed. The ceremony would start all over again the following day, as a new ixiptla would be chosen as a replacement.
* {{Egyptian Mythology}}: Isis, Nephthys, Bast. And Anubis, at least for the FurryFandom.
* Finnish: Loviatar
* {{Norse Mythology}}: Sif, known for her beautiful hair; Freyja, the "most beautiful woman" and a fertility Goddess; Gerd, ''also'' the "most beautiful woman"; and Baldr, who isn't a God of beauty but was well known for his [[{{Pun}} radiant]] beauty. [[VoluntaryShapeshifter Loki]] is this as well in some recountings, though presumably less so after his mouth was sewn shut and he tore out the bindings.
* [[MesopotamianMythology Sumerian]]: Inanna
* {{Japanese Mythology}}: Benten, Amaterasu, and [[BigBeautifulWoman some renditions]] of Ame-no-Uzume.
* [[CelticMythology Aengus Og]], the love god of the Tuatha De Danaan, was THE {{Bishonen}} amongst a tribe known for pretty men.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''
** {{Dragonlance}}: [[http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/ova-9.jpg Takhisis (human form)]]
** Elven: Eilistraee, Hanali Celanil, [[http://www.peldor.com/modules/fort9/selene.jpg Lolth (human/elf form)]]
** ForgottenRealms: Angharradh, Corellon Larethian, Sune, Sharess
* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'': Luna is both a [[GenderBender Hot God and Hot Goddess]]. (This is in a setting where EveryoneIsBi.)
* TabletopGame/{{Scion}} has notes about how the few aversions in each pantheon handle it.
* TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} and TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}} has Slaanesh, the divinely beautiful and seductive Chaos Power of lust, desire and sensual excess. Slaanesh can assume a form of any gender at will, and whatever Slaanesh chooses, it will always be a supernaturally beautiful and alluring form. Devoted followers of Slaanesh are often rewarded with a fraction of this power.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:TV Tropes]]
* This very wiki has a bevy of 'em with its Pantheon/TropePantheons, and they come in ''many'' different flavors (male, female, human, nonhuman, good, evil, etc.).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Videogames]]
* Gwynevere, the Princess of Sunlight, in ''DarkSouls''. [[AbsoluteCleavage Her cleavage is bigger than you are. Literally]].
* Cosmos of ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy''.
* Depending on your interpretation, the [[BonusBoss superboss]] of ''VideoGame/CrisisCore: VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', Minerva, is strongly related to The Planet's [[TheLifestream consciousness]], either being its [[AnthropomorphicPersonification physical embodiment]] or goddess. [[http://images.wikia.com/finalfantasy/images/6/61/Minerva.jpg Here,]] [[http://images.wikia.com/finalfantasy/images/4/45/Minerva_Artwork.jpg take a look.]]
* Several of the Summons in the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series could qualify, with [[http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100618194422/finalfantasy/images/c/c6/Siren_silent_voice.png Siren]], [[http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120504032953/finalfantasy/images/d/dd/Shiva_ffx.jpg Shiva]], and [[http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20121215201605/finalfantasy/images/6/6d/Garuda_(FFXI).png Garuda]] being the three most people remember. This only works though if you assume that the Summons in the various Final Fantasy games represent actual Gods. ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' rejects this notion, though ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' accepts this as actual {{Canon}} inside the game, and as WordOfGod. Though in the case of the known Hot God from Final Fantasy XIV, she would sooner rip you to ribbons on her talons than look at you with any romantic interests. It is also interesting to note that of the three mentioned above, Siren is the only one whose name is actually derived from a female mythological entity, and she is by and large the least popular of the three.
** By the above logic, Terra Branford of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' probably qualifies for this trope under the sub-category of Hot Demi-God as she is [[spoiler: the daughter of the Eidolon Maudeen, born to a human woman.]]
* ''VideoGame/AgeOfMythology'' contains portraits of many gods and goddesses from all over classical mythology, most of which are attractive and scantily-clad.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius'' has Ashera, the Goddess of Order and Restriction. [[TheGhost While she is only mentioned in lore in]] ''Radiance'', she is actually seen in ''Dawn''. [[spoiler:Very beautiful, perhaps otherworldly so, but she's [[GodOfEvil evil]]. This is explained by the backstory: When the Goddess of Dawn Ashunera became so overcome by her emotions in response to the warring nations of the world, she accidentally summoned [[TheGreatFlood a calamitous deluge]] that wiped out most of the world. In order to prevent this from happening again, a grieving Ashunera discarded her emotions. Ashunera became Ashera (who retained her original self's maturity), while her emotions manifested as Yune, the cute, childlike Goddess of Chaos and Transformation. [[GuideDangIt Go through a few hoops]] (namely, recruit her [[TheDragon Dragon]] Sephiran/Lehran during NewGamePlus) and the [[GodIsGood benevolent]] Ashunera will return during the extended epilogue.]]
* Similarly, in FireEmblemAwakening we get to take a look at [[spoiler: the Divine Dragon Naga]]. [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/Naga_(character) She looks like this]]. [[spoiler: Kinda subverted in that she claims not to be a Goddess, but she's still seen as such by humanity.]] Additionally, [[spoiler: in at least one universe [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/Tiki her also beautiful daughter Tiki]] becomes this when she takes her mother's place.]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Ys}} I & II'' feature Feena and Leah.
* ''LaPucelleTactics'' has Goddess Poitreene.
* Asura and Inanna (who were based on Hindu and Sumerian gods, respectively) from ''VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence''.
* The Harvest God (a [[FieryRedhead red-haired]] [[MrFanservice hunk]]) and the Harvest Goddess (who looks different in most of her incarnations but is still beautiful all the same) of ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon''.
* Palutena of ''KidIcarus''.
** {{Medusa}} (the BigBad) originally co-ruled Angel Land with Palutena until she was banished for [[HumansAreBastards her spiteful action towards humans]]. Palutena cursed her, transforming her into a giant, snake-haired monster cyclops, but upon defeat, she assumes a less hideous appearance. [[http://images.wikia.com/nintendo/en/images/1/18/Medusa_Uprising.png Her redesign]] in ''Kid Icarus Uprising'' cements her as a CuteMonsterGirl[=/=]GorgeousGorgon.
** [[spoiler:Phosphora also qualifies, as does Amazon Pandora.]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'': Kanako qualifies. Suwako is more Cute God than Hot God, but there is the fact that Sanae is her great-great-great-...-granddaughter.
** Yukari may not technically be a goddess, despite being older than the land of Gensokyo itself and every bit as powerful as the actual gods, but she is ''quite'' attractive.
** Shinki is HotAsHell and "[[BossSubtitles the God of Makai]]".
** And side-manga ''Silent Sinner in Blue'' mentions that the rabbits find traditional Shinto god Lord Daikoku[[note]]aka Oogoninushi no Mikoto, who saved the legendary White Rabbit of Inaba[[/note]] very handsome.
* [[spoiler:Grune]] of ''VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia'' turns out to be one of these.
* ''MuramasaTheDemonBlade'' gives us the pair of Fujin and Raijin. Fujin is more "Cute" than "Hot", while [[AmazonianBeauty Raijin]] plays this trope completely straight. Given their interactions in the story (notably, he being one of the few people who can bring out her [[{{Tsundere}} softer side]]), it's a safe bet to assume that they're lovers.
* [[MortalKombat Raiden]]. He assumes the form of a handsome adult male with a NiceHat; his alternate costume in the ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombatDeadlyAlliance DA]]/[[VideoGame/MortalKombatDeception D]]/[[VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon A]]'' trilogy ditches the hat, revealing Raiden to have a {{long|HairedPrettyBoy}} mane of white hair. In fact, he's one the prime sources of MrFanservice among female fans of the series. It's a bit of a stretch, but the likes of [[VideoGame/MortalKombatMythologiesSubZero Fujin and the nameless Water and Fire Gods]] could also fit the bill.
** In ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombatArmageddon Armageddon]]'', the defeat of [[LivingMacGuffin Blaze]] usually results in the victor [[SuperEmpowering being granted a surge of godlike power]], but only a few of them actually become bona-fide gods. [[VideoGame/MortalKombat3 Rain]] and Taven (both demi-gods; [[DivineParentage they share a father in Edenia's protector god Argus]]) ascend to full godhood, whereas the [[VideoGame/MortalKombat2 younger Sub-Zero]] and [[VideoGame/MortalKombatDeadlyAlliance Nitara]] respectively assume the form of an ice god and blood goddess. [[VideoGame/MortalKombatDeception Kira]] is transformed into a goddess of death at the behest of Kobra, who demands the Elder Gods to make him Lord of the Realms and give him [[MinionShipping his fellow Black Dragon clanswoman]] [[UnholyMatrimony to be his wife]] (this backfires, as [[KissOfDeath Kobra crumbles into ashes when Kira kisses him]]). The Elder Gods also turn [[VideoGame/MortalKombat3 Sheeva]] into a destroyer goddess in her ending. Liu Kang, on the other hand, defeats his former {{mentor|s}} Raiden ([[CameBackWrong now]] [[DarkerAndEdgier a]] [[DarkMessiah vengeful god]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist willing to protect Earthrealm at any cost]]) and succeeds him as protector god of Earthrealm. [[spoiler:The last one happens again in Liu Kang's Arcade Ladder ending ''[[VideoGame/MortalKombat9 MK9]]'', although Liu Kang ends up as a [[DrunkWithPower power-mad]] [[FallenHero tyrant]].]]
* Althena and Lucia in the ''{{Lunar}}'' series.
* Any of the goddesses in ''{{Neptunia}}''. ''Especially'' former goddess [[EvilIsSexy Magiquone/Arfoire]]
* [[VideoGame/WarCraft The night elf goddess Elune]] is depicted (at least in the RPG book Shadows & Light) as an attractive night elf female with very little clothing.
* Technically averted with [[PhysicalGod Almalexia]] from VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind, who is too low-polygon to be considered any kind of hot, but in-game books really do describe her as an example of this trope. She also wears VaporWear.
** You can also download high-poly Almalexia mods.
*** Because it's [[SkewedPriorities really important]] when you're being [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomped]] by a [[MadGod psychotic goddess]] that she shouldn't be an ''[[BeautyIsNeverTarnished ugly]]'' [[MadGod psychotic goddess?]]
* Huge spoiler warning for [[spoiler: ''VideoGame/{{Persona4}} the Golden''. Marie turns out to become this if you get her to rank 10 social link, defeat her bonus dungeon, and get the True Ending. Turns out that all the major Bosses were fragments of the original Izanami: Marie is the Human part of Izanami and inherits all the power once they are all defeated.]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Several in ''Webcomic/BratHalla'':
** Frigg doesn't look a day past her 30s.
** The goddesses of beauty competing in the Pantheon Games
** Hel. But [[{{Squick}} only from the waist up]].
** Sif [[ShesAllGrownUp becomes one]] in storylines set in the future.
** Balder is a male example, seeing as he's a god of beauty himself.
* Agni from ''Webcomic/{{Kubera}}''. [[IncrediblyLamePun Punnily enough, a fire god]].
* Though she was mentioned above under TableTop [=RPGs=] she deserves special mention here as well due to her inclusion in the ''{{Webcomic/Drowtales}}'' comic's creation myth. Here, Sharess did not start off as a Goddess, but through her own actions in the story she becomes a Goddess to her people, even if she doesn't actually control their fates or anything of that sort. She does however sort of Ascend to a higher plane [[spoiler: When she transfers her Aura to the Nether Planes to battle the Nether Gods which enables her to close the various portals to the Nether Planes that were plaguing her people at the time. Once in the Nether Plane she shatters herself into shards, the most recent of which, according to a Daydream Story, is essentially a Goddess for the people in that world who can manipulate the very fabric of reality in that world by simply wishing it to be manipulated.]]
** Also of note in the same webcomic is the Vloz'ress Ill'haress Kharla'ggen whose aura is so massive that she is essentially a Goddess herself. Unfortunately she has a High Sorcery that turns people into inanimate objects that are still alive. And she is just insane enough to use it liberally to create her infamous doll collection.
*** Being elves, both ladies are naturally exceedingly hot by human standards. Though in Kharla's case it is questionable since the reader never really gets to see her face, except for when she was really young.
** Other Drowtales candidates for Hot Gods include Sha'sana [[spoiler:(arguably the oldest living entity in that world as of Pre-Timeskip)]], Ash'Warren [[spoiler:(Arguably the second oldest living entity in that world as of Post-Time Skip, and also the single strongest Empath in the entire story, and thus possibly the only power-check on Kharla.)]], both of whom have absolutely massive auras rivaling Kharla's, Khaless [[spoiler:(A Demon of unknown max-power-levels)]], Kiel'ndia [[spoiler:(only person to achieve what is termed the Safe-Taint without Snadhya'rune helping them, and arguably just as powerful as Khaless but for the polar opposite reasons, and the only person who has managed to TAME a [[EldritchAbomination Glutton Demon]]...)]], and of course Snadhya'rune herself [[spoiler:(the Chessmaster and evil mastermind of the entire series, possibly not very powerful in her own right, but she is smarter than everyone else in the series (except possibly Sha'sana), including her mother who was the reigning Empress of the Unified Drow Kingdoms before she was forced to abandon her own body for a slave's in order to escape.)]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Originals]]
* In ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'', Artemicia and Hivena, the Goddesses of Healing and Love, are very beautiful.
* All the New Olympians at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] in the WhateleyUniverse. The avatar of Aphrodite, in particular, likes to use her beauty and lust aura to manipulate men. Fey, as one of the Nine Queens of the ancient Sidhe would count too.
* Averted in SweetBroAndHellaJeff: The trope name is mentioned by name, but it's actually a misspelled hot ''dog''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Princess Celestia from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is not only drawn more aesthetically pleasing than the rest of the cast, but also [[WorldsMostBeautifulWoman appears to be the ideal of equine beauty]] in Equestria. It can be inferred that similar standards apply to the other princesses.
