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


[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* 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.


[[folder: Fan Works ]]

* The ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'':
** It's explained on a few occasions, but the basic story is that [[TopGod the Four Elders]] and their children (the Alicorns and Draconequi) crafted the universe, with the Alicorns setting up the Big Bang and it being implied Destruction set it off. [[TimeAbyss Celestia]] was annoyed it'd take a long time for life to evolve. The individual deities apparently created various species at some point after that. This is also a circular process that has happened over and over: the universe lives out it's lifespan, beings in it moving on to their afterlives, until finally Heat Death happens, at which point Entropy devours the dead universe to make room for a new one, which the Elders take the time between to set up the foundations for the next universe.
** "The Rise of Tirek", Tirek's OriginStory, is basically this for the world as ponies know it, as [[spoiler:Tirek destroyed [[ThePrecursors the Centaur]] civilization and drove them to extinction, after which the ponies were uplifted by the Rainbows of Light and Darkness, leading to the present civilization.]]


[[folder: Film ]]

* ''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.


[[folder: Literature ]]

* ''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.
* ''Literature/TheMagiciansNephew,'' The sixth book of ''Literature/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]].


[[folder:Live-Action TV]]

* ''Series/{{Lucifer 2016}}'': Lucifer tells his therapist how the universe was created, couched in terms she'll understand. Apparently the actual Big Bang was caused by God and Lucifer's mother having sex ("You never knew how appropriate that term was, did you?"), and then they built a house called Heaven and filled it with their children, the angels. Then their father started spending all his time in the garage working on a project called "humanity," while their mother became cold and emotionally distant. Lucifer got in an argument with his father and got kicked out of the house, and then a few thousand years later his mother got thrown out as well.


[[folder: Webcomics ]]

* 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.


[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* ''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.
--> '''[[UnreliableNarrator Pinkie]] [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness Pie]]:''' [[CreationMyth ...And that's how Equestria was made!]] [[MindScrew Maybe on the way home I can tell you the story of how I got my cutie mark! It's a gem!]]
