'''Percy:''' He's the sun god.\\
'''Thalia:''' That's not what I meant.
-->-- ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians''

When the [[OurGodsAreDifferent gods]] are divine in their beauty as well as power.

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, HotAsHell, and FlamingDevil for a Hot God's infernal rivals in looks.

JustForFun/NotToBeConfusedWith [[Webcomic/SweetBroAndHellaJeff something that you put jelly on]]... except in very ''specific'' [[{{Fetish}} fantasies]]. Or SexGod, although the two can overlap. Contrast GrandpaGod, the one with the long white beard.



[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
%%* The goddesses of ''Manga/AhMyGoddess''.
%%* [[JerkassGod Zeus]] of ''AudioPlay/SaintBeast'' is every bit as good looking as his {{angelic|Beauty}} [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys harem]].
%%* ''Anime/KamisamaKazoku'' is quite possibly full of them.
* [[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 ''Manga/FushigiYuugi''. When they're in their human forms, that is.
* [[spoiler:Ultimate Madoka]] from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''--demonstrated with [[ImpossiblyCoolClothes a gigantic, gorgeous dress]] and [[RapunzelHair extraordinarily long hair]], to work around limitations of the art style and because [[IncorruptiblePurePureness she's too pure for overt sex appeal]]. (Though she does, bizarrely, have a CleavageWindow.) [[spoiler:Demon Homura]] from ''[[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion Rebellion]]'' takes a [[{{Stripperiffic}} more traditional approach]]. Both are very popular in fanart despite being {{Walking Spoiler}}s.
%%* All of the [[Franchise/SailorMoon Sailor Senshi]]. ''All'' of them. Well, okay, not Chibi-Moon yet, but she'll get there. Eventually.
* Just to mention any deity in the ''LightNovel/IsItWrongToTryToPickUpGirlsInADungeon'' falls into this trope. The most obvious example is Hestia, who became a British-tabloid-reported sex god, and Hephastios, who has undergone a ''serious'' Beauty Upgrade, which included a GenderFlip and changing (now) her disability to an eyepatch.
%%* Bishamon and Yato from ''Manga/{{Noragami}}''.
%%* The whole point of ''VisualNovel/KamigamiNoAsobi'' -it's a CrossoverCosmology [[HaremGenre harem]] of gods in a magical high school.
* ''Manga/MakenKi'': The flashback mini-arc between chapters 51-53, reveals Himegami's mother, Yatsuno, was the [[spoiler: Eight-headed Orochi]] of legend in human form. She was such a hottie that Oousu [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c051/3.html couldn't take his eyes off her body]] and was [[LustObject determined to bang her.]] He eventually succeeded and fathered [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c051/12.html their two children.]]
* ''Manga/UchiNoMusumeNiTeODasuNa'': Applies to Athena and her sister, Artemis, who first appear to be superheroines, but are later revealed to be the actual Greek goddesses of legend (chapter 9). Which makes Athena's daughter, Clara, a demigoddess, since she was fathered by a mortal. All three are portrayed as nubile and [[LeotardOfPower scantily clad]], with Athena being [[StacysMom acknowledged in-universe as a MILF]], who's [[HelloNurse constantly lusted after]] and sexually assaulted by Blowjob's forces.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/BlackMoonChronicles'': [[spoiler:The Oracle]]'s true form is a nubile bald woman with shining skin. She also hasn't experienced earthly pleasures for several millennia and wants to make up the time. Cue threesome between the goddess, Wismerhill, and his succubus girlfriend.
* ''ComicBook/TalesOfTelguuth'': Lazalla Zal, mistress of the moons, is a beautiful goddess who was summoned by the ancient wizards of Zalazille so she could become their mistress. [[spoiler:In the thousands of years since then, she's aged quite a bit though.]]

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''Fanfic/IceIceBaby'': The four gods are all extremely attractive in their own divine ways, but Idris Elba, the god of paternal hotness, is certainly considered to be the most heavenly looking.
* ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': Rayana is Goddess Empress of Avalon. She is a very bustier, long-haired FieryRedhead. Magic, Love, Beauty and Motherhood are some of her domains. She is so hot even straight women need a cold shower after seeing her.
* ''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.
* ''Fanfic/TheGreatAlicornHunt'': At least three of the now-alicorn Mane Six are this trope:
** Rarity gets a spotlight wearing a [[SexyBacklessOutfit backless]] [[PimpedOutDress gown]] in Chapter 12, and later makes boys swoon just by doing a [[HairFlip mane-toss]] in Chapter 51.
** Fluttershy is this trope taken UpToEleven:
*** It's given note that she used to be a former supermodel, and a fashion magazine has her in a ''lingerie shot''.
*** A guard being teased for the butterfly logo on his armor (due to being inducted into Fluttershy's PraetorianGuard) only needs a photo of Fluttershy and said fashion magazine to be ''envied by every guard in the bar''.
*** A recruitment criteria for said PraetorianGuard of hers even exploits this trope: they had to get [[BodyguardCrush soppy looks on their faces when she walks past them]].
** Rainbow Dash tries to exploit this trope by (clumsily) flirting seductively to Mach One in Chapter 49. Unfortunately for her, [[EpicFail her target is not of legal age]] ([[YoungerThanTheyLook although he looks the part]]). The first lines of the next chapter say it the best:
--> '''Narration''': "Mach was a touch bewildered as to what had just occurred. One moment a smoking hot she-alicorn had been purring at him from an inch away, so close he could smell her body wash (Mountain Racer Sport scent, if you must know), the next there had been an earsplitting scream and a flash of light, and now she was on the opposite side of the room, squared off and hyperventilating in panic."
* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', has several examples:
** [[{{Hunk}} Thor]] and [[PrettyBoy Loki]]. It also has [[GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave Frigga]], [[ChickMagnet Fandral,]] [[AmazonianBeauty Sif and Athena.]] In addition, there's Harry, [[ShesAllGrownUp who's getting all grown up]] and people are noticing, [[spoiler: Diana,]] who's mentioned as being a pretty girl and on course to become absolutely stunning. Considering that she's [[spoiler: Wonder Woman]], this is hardly surprising.
** Both Harry and [[spoiler:Diana's]] future good looks are confirmed in a brief PlotRelevantAgeUp.
** Considering it's basically been acknowledged that all the pantheons exist, this probably applies to all those it does in mythology, too.
** And of course, there's [[AlphaBitch Amora the Enchantress.]]
* In ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'':
** Played straight with [[spoiler:Asuka]] -whose body is described as spectacular, heavily muscled and incredibly womanly- and with [[spoiler:Misato]] who was a beautiful human woman and becomes even more voluptuous after ascending to godhood.
** Subverted with [[spoiler:Reigle,]] Goddess of Decay. [[spoiler:Shinji]] thinks that she's beautiful, but everyone else thinks she looks like a half-rotten corpse.

* [[CelibateHero Hanuman]] from ''Animation/TheReturnOfHanuman'' has a HeroicBuild, which might be the reason [[SmittenTeenageGirl a squirrel]] is really attracted to him.
* God [[spoiler:(played by Music/AlanisMorissette)]] in ''Film/{{Dogma}}'' could count as one. Jay mentions when God kissed him, he popped a semi.
* The Muses from ''Film/{{Xanadu}}'', including Kira.
* ''Film/OneTouchOfVenus'' has the titular LoveGoddess played by classic screen beauty Ava Gardener. Every male who encounters her is stunned by her beauty.

* ''[[Literature/TheElricSaga 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.
* ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'', being based on Myth/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 ''Literature/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.
** Melian, specifically. In his ''Quenta Noldorinwa'' Tolkien stated "Melian was a fay. In the gardens of [the Vala] she dwelt, and amongst all his [Thingol's] folk, none surpassed her in beauty[...]". Indeed, she is so beautiful, that even Luthien Tinuviel, the ''most beautiful of all the Elves'' was not as beautiful as Melian.
* Dweia from ''Literature/TheRedemptionOfAlthalus''.
* In ''Literature/{{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 Literature/{{Branion}} series was named [[TheMagnificent Alexius the Fair]].
* Aphrodite in Fred Saberhagen's ''Literature/BooksOfSwords'' trilogy is not merely extremely beautiful, but appears to whoever sees her as whatever that individual viewer's ideal of female beauty is.
* [[PhysicalGod The Returned]] in ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}'' (not real gods, but close enough and worshiped 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.
* In ''[[Literature/TheBelgariad Belgarath the Sorceror]]'', Belgarath recalls that Torak was quite beautiful back before the Orb of Aldur burned off half of his face.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Pretty much every single God ever in ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' and ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess''.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''
** In Season 5, Dean hits on an incredibly hot woman in a red dress at a hotel. She turns out to be the goddess, Kali.
** In season 6, [[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—
* ''Series/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 no 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.
* Although he doesn't appear in the episodes, [[Characters/MCUThor Thor]] is referenced as such in ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD''.
** In the pilot episode, when Ward mentions he doesn't think Thor and Asgardians are [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens actual gods]], Maria Hill quips that Ward hasn't seen Thor's arms.
** In "The Well", Skye calls Thor dreamy. When Coulson admits he's handsome, [[TheStoic May]] interrupts and [[InsistentTerminology flatly states that no, he's dreamy]].

[[folder:Myths and Religion]]
* Myth/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.
** Sumerian: Inanna, who was basically the same goddess as Ishtar.
* Myth/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 she was the boring, sane one.)
** The ancient greeks believed that beauty is actually a manifestation of divine favor or divine lineage. Hence why many demigods tend to be rather good looking and have women/goddesses (or in the case of the rare female demigod other gods) falling love at first sight.
* Myth/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.
* Myth/EgyptianMythology: Isis, Nephthys, Bast. And Anubis, at least for the UsefulNotes/FurryFandom.
* Finnish: Loviatar
* Myth/NorseMythology: 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 [[MouthStitchedShut mouth was sewn shut]] and he tore out the bindings.
* Myth/JapaneseMythology: Benten, Amaterasu, and [[BigBeautifulWoman some renditions]] of Ame-no-Uzume.
* Myth/CelticMythology: Aengus Og, the love god of the Tuatha De Danaan, was THE {{Bishonen}} amongst a tribe known for pretty men.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''
** Literature/{{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)]]
** TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms: Angharradh, Corellon Larethian, Sune, Sharess
* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'':
** Pathfinder has [[http://cdn.obsidianportal.com/assets/183166/Shelyn-art.jpg Shelyn.]]
* ''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}}:
** Slaanesh, the divinely beautiful and seductive Chaos Power of lust, desire and sensual excess. Slaanesh can assume a form of any gender (male, female, hermaphroditic, or androgynous) at will, and whatever Slaanesh chooses, it will always be an androgynously, supernaturally beautiful and alluring form... though since Slaanesh embodies hedonistic lust rather than love, its forms have a perverse UncannyValley effect and are almost as horrifying as they are beautiful. Devoted followers of Slaanesh are often rewarded with a fraction of this power. It's been stated that Slaanesh prefers masculine forms, though if it's like his daemons, it might be masculine on the left side and feminine on the right.
** The Emperor of Mankind (who was effectively a PhysicalGod even if he denied being a true deity) was a golden-armored superhuman with long hair and classic chiseled good looks. Then the Heresy happened.

[[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.).

* Gwynevere, the Princess of Sunlight, in ''VideoGame/DarkSouls''. [[AbsoluteCleavage Her cleavage is bigger than you are]]. [[GiantWoman 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://www.ffelement.com/finalfantasy/ff8/gf/siren.jpg Siren]], [[https://johnbarre.files.wordpress.com/2016/07/final-fantasy-x-ffx-hd-wallpaper-set13-bevelle-21-aeon-shiva-pose-model.jpg?w=640 Shiva]], and [[https://res.cloudinary.com/lmn/image/upload/fl_lossy,q_80/f_auto/v1/gameskinny/3f0a72f4cbfdfe5ec499b47deea1e157.jpg 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/FinalFantasyXII'' has Ultima, one of only two female Espers. Although she's a CuteMonsterGirl, before her fall from grace, she radiated a divine light that dazzled everyone.
* ''VideoGame/AgeOfMythology'' contains portraits of many gods and goddesses from all over classical mythology, most of which are attractive and scantily-clad.
* The Greek goddesses in ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'' are hot and in some cases (Aphrodite especially) the scenes involving them are NSFW.
* ''Franchise/FireEmblem'':
** ''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. The player should [[GuideDangIt through a few hoops]] (namely, recruiting her [[TheDragon Dragon]] Sephiran/Lehran during a NewGamePlus), and as a reward the [[GodIsGood benevolent]] Ashunera will return during the extended epilogue.]]
*** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia'' (and by extension [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Awakening]] Naga is depicted as a [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/fireemblem/images/c/c5/NagaFE3.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20100815045732 handsome giant man]], however this is subverted as Naga is actually a [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/fireemblem/images/5/5d/Naga_Awakening_Sprite.png/revision/latest?cb=20160430025616 a beautiful]] female Dragon, and [[AGodIAmNot not a god at all]].
** Also in the Akaneia series, ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden'' has the goddess [[http://fireemblem.wikia.com/wiki/File:Doma_and_Mila_(Manga).jpg Mila]] who is depicted as a beautiful woman; [[TheGhost according to the statues of her and the manga adaptation anyway]]. Oddly her brother Duma appears as a cycloptic undead dragon, though the Manga adaptation depicts him with an attractive human form. The ''Gaiden'' remake ''Echoes: Shadows of Valentia'' [[https://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fireemblem/images/3/39/Mila_Echoes_Art.png/revision/latest?cb=20170412140340 confirms this]] ''AND'' [[https://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/fireemblem/images/9/9a/DumaHalf.png/revision/latest?cb=20170601080443 gives Duma's human form]] the AdaptationalAttractiveness treatment.
* ''VideoGame/{{Ys}} I & II'' feature Feena and Leah.
* ''VideoGame/LaPucelle Tactics'' has very well-named Goddess Poitreene, whose name derives from a French word for breast. She usually takes the form of a multi-winged blonde angel wearing next to nothing.
* 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 ''VideoGame/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 ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' 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.
* ''VideoGame/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, the goddess of love and beauty in ''VideoGame/{{Lunar}}'' series, is admired (often lecherously) by [=NPCs=]. Players too, as evidenced by an winning entry from an old Creator/WorkingDesigns haiku contest: "''Heavenly bodies / Eyes gaze upwards in rev'rence / Goddess in a thong''"
** The heroine of the sequel, Lucia, is in some [[EpilepticTrees ill-defined way]] a counterpart to Althena and is similarly admired.
* Goddess Ilias from H-Game ''Monster Girl Quest'' may be a [[JerkassGods deceitful]] [[LightIsNotGood genocidal]] lunatic, but she is still VERY easy on the eyes. And of course, some of her scenes are NSFW.
** Not to be outdone, her rival and resident dark goddess Alipheese I fits the bill, and she's a CuteMonsterGirl to boot (natch).
* Any of the goddesses in ''Franchise/{{Neptunia}}''. ''Especially'' former goddess [[EvilIsSexy Magiquone/Arfoire]].
** Averted with Magiquone in some games where she is merely a mortal instead of a goddess.
** Note that the goddesses are mostly hot when they are in their goddess forms. Most of them are rather cute than hot in their human forms, but their hotness level increases a lot after their transformation.
** The CPU Candidates on the other hand are not really hot, but just cute (still plenty of {{fanservice}}), even after they transform.
* [[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.
** The Titans, the {{Top God}}s of the setting, are generally depicted as, basically, really enormous humans in a mix of the Norse and Greek pantheons; as with the source material, beauty, or at least rugged handsomeness, is the exception rather than the rule. (Except, naturally, [[FallenAngel Sargeras]].) Sargeras apparently ''used'' to be an example, but his fall to darkness [[EvilMakesYouUgly came with an evil makeover]] (his skin split open and started spewing flame).
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'':
** Dibella, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedric Divine]] Goddess of Beauty, logically plays it straight. She is typically depicted as a voluptuous and attractive female. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', she is [[MsFanservice topless]].
** Almalexia, the Dunmeri [[PhysicalGod Tribunal deity]], is described as one of the most beautiful beings on Nirn in-universe. She also tends to wear {{Stripperific}} outfits and VaporWear, which do not hurt her case. She appears in-person in both ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'''s ''Tribunal'' expansion and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline Online]]''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Persona4}}: Golden''. [[spoiler: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.]]
* As a general rule, goddesses depicted in ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' games are this, as drawn by Kazuma Kaneko. A lesser amount are hags of varying kind with the occasional TokenMiniMoe. As for males, there's a goodly amount of HeroicBuild and {{Bishonen}}, though as a rule they are quite a bit uglier than their female counterparts.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* In the webcomics by Creator/AGnosis, most of the gods are this, but Dionysos more so than others. [[http://a-gnosis.deviantart.com/art/Lysios-Lenaios-503484537 Yes, he's a guy. He's just that pretty.]]
* 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}}''. 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: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 Literature/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.
* Subverted in Webcomic/SweetBroAndHellaJeff: The trope is mentioned by name, but it's actually a misspelled hot ''dog''.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Eris from ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'', the goddess of chaos. Blonde and with a curvy body.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' has a woman known only as The Daughter, the physical embodiment of the light side of the Force. A slender beauty clad in [[GoldAndWhiteAreDivine white and gold]], with an [[PhosphorEssence angelic glow]], [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair green hair]] that seems to float in the air behind her, and AbsoluteCleavage on top of that.
* The Avatar on ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' tends to take the form of an attractive human. So far, all the known Avatars (Wan, Yangchen, Kuruk, Kyoshi, Roku [[IWasQuiteALooker in his younger days]], Aang [[SheIsAllGrownUp as an adult]], and [[BoobsOfSteel Korra]]) have all looked pretty damn good. The Painted Lady and [[spoiler:Yue the moon spirit]] could also be considered examples.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' - Princess Celestia is a PhysicalGod who raises the sun. She's also drawn in such a way that indicates she is meant to be a radiant beauty among the pony folk.
** Within the fandom, however, Princess Luna is typically considered the more beautiful of the two, which may partially be due to her EnsembleDarkhorse status.
