A God or similar creates a world or similar. Unlike a CreationMyth, the creation is part of the actual story, not just its background.

In fantasy and mythology, this is sometimes the first chapter of the story, starting from the ''very'' beginning. Other times, it happens as a significant plot point in the middle of the story or as its end.

!! Examples

* In ''ComicBook/{{Lucifer}}'', two universes get created. Each creation get its own chapter detailing the process of creation.
* Inverted in the [[ComicBook/TheSandman Sandman]] graphic novel ''A Game of You''. A world is destroyed by its maker, but this act of uncreation is portrayed as inverting the act of creating it.

* ''Film/TronLegacy'' is very much about Flynn and Clu building a world together. This is ancient history when the story begins, but the flashbacks are frequent.

* ''The Last Question,'' a short story by Isaac Asimov, revolves around the question of rejuvenating and ultimately recreating the universe.
* ''Literature/TheBible'' begins with God creating the heavens and the earth.
* ''TheMagiciansNephew,'' The sixth book of ''TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' (in writing order - chronologically it's the first) has almost the entire cast witnessing as [[strike:Jesus]] Aslan creates the titular world.
* The first chapter in Creator/JRRTolkien's ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' is Ainulindale (The Music of the Ainur), the story of the creation of Middle-Earth.
* In Discworld/{{Eric}}, the main characters are magically thrown back in time and meet the Creator as he's making the Discworld. [[spoiler: ...and accidentally take part]].

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', [[spoiler:creating universes is the whole point of Sburb, and the kids' universe was created by the trolls' session.]]
* In ''Webcomic/AliceAndTheNightmare'', professor Dymond starts her history lesson with telling the students the creation story of Wonderland, even name-checking the trope.

* ''WesternAnimation/TitanAE'' ends with the heroes using the Titan to create a new world, a home planet for mankind to replace the one they lost in the DownerBeginning.
* [[CloudCuckoolander Pinkie Pie]]'s story of how she got her cutie mark, in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'''s [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E23TheCutieMarkChronicles twenty-third episode]], parodies this trope upon its conclusion.
