Little Miss Almighty
And the goddess said, let there be a Dancing Theme.

Since most people imagine God as a bearded old man, the natural antithesis of this expectation would be having the supreme ruler of the universe be a young girl instead. Creators will sometimes do this to subvert a viewer's expectations, especially in works heavy with Epileptic Trees and Mind Screw.

Compare Divine Race Lift, Goo Goo Godlike, Little Miss Badass.

     Anime & Manga  

     Comic Books  

  • In The Sandman, the Lord of Chaos, Shivering Jemmy, manifests as a young blond girl with a balloon.
  • The ultimate conclusion of Lucifer: Yahweh retires by Lucifer's suggestion, and Elaine Belloc takes His place.

     Fanworks 
  • A Growing Affection has The Reaper, the goddess of Death. She appears as an unnaturally cute girl of no more than six years. And she doesn't even take offense at Naruto's accidental blasphemy.

     Film  

  • Cafe was a movie about a coffee shop that took place in a world as a computer program. The chief programmer was a teenage girl.
  • Alanis Morissette is God in Dogma, while she is more like a young adult woman, her childlike mannerisms are clearly meant to evoke this trope.

     Literature  

     Live Action TV  

  • On Angel, Wolfram & Hart's conduit to the Senior Partners would sometimes manifest as a sweet little girl
  • God took the shape of an elementary-school girl a couple of times in Joan of Arcadia.
  • Supernatural: Lilith, arch-demon and de facto ruler of Hell while Satan is imprisoned, seems to prefer possessing little girls. While not God, she's at least as powerful as some small-g gods in the show.

     Music  

     Tabletop Games  

  • It is implied in Demon The Fallen fluff that the Old World of Darkness God is a girl. Since the Fallen are pretty much the only still-living beings who have actually seen God at the dawn of time, their word can be trusted.
    • Since the vast majority of the Fallen are still really, really pissed at God, don't put too much stock in their word.
    • God also has an evil sister named Oblivion, short for "The Grand Maw of Oblivion." Grand Maw wanted to create her own universe, and saying that she "failed" is not putting it strongly enough. Now she and her "offspring" spend their time gnawing underneath the afterlife until the end of the world.

     Video Games  

  • Eternal Daughter: Player character Mia is a demigod.
  • Not technically a god, but the Fairy Queen in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker manifests to Link in a child-like form. And then hits on him.
  • Moriya Suwako from Touhou.
    • And hey, Kanako Yasaka, why not, even though she's not as young-looking. Reality Warper Yukari Yakumo also may qualify. She's not God. But she might as well be.
  • Yune from Fire Emblem:Radiant Dawn should count.
  • Taken to the extreme in Ar tonelico series. Humans (and more) live in three gigantic towers that are also massive computers capable of potent magic. The Administrators of the towers are all little girls, especially Frelia.
    • However, they aren't Goddesses in the literal sense of the word due to actually getting their names from three Goddesses that lived millennia prior to them, and the fact that they are considered as such due to keeping the Towers, the last safe haven for life in Ar Ciel, functioning. However, a few of the personae of the Planet Ar Ciel (which are the actual creators and maintainers of said planet and all life on it) do fit the definition.
  • Oracle Of Tao has Ambrosia, who for much of the first game is oblivious that she is God's avatar (she's about 20-30 though). This creates an odd situation, since she was literally sending herself on a quest. Later on though, she accepts being God fully, and the current version of God gets reincarnated so that Ambrosia can have a life with Nevras while her mother can have a life with God.
  • A sort-of inversion: In Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, Lucifer appears as a little blonde girl in white dress, calling herself "Louisa Ferre."
  • Ingrid of the Street Fighter series (though she debuted in Capcom Fighting Jam) definitely counts. It's implied that she is the creator/true owner of Bison's Psycho Power (and by extension, Rose's Soul Power) and she seems to be Immortal, with the power to Time Travel at her leisure. Supplemental materials for Street Fighter X Tekken also credits her as the creator of Pandora, the god-like object that everyone's fighting over.
  • Elizabeth from BioShock Infinite effectively ascends to godhood the moment the Siphon is destroyed. While she is not almighty, since she is forced to operate within the limitations of constants and variables, by the end of the game, she can manipulate those variables and thus tweak the entire multiverse in any way she pleases. Exemplified by this exchange between her and the cynical, daredevil badass of a Player Character (which takes place even before her apotheosis):
    Elizabeth: Booker, are you afraid of God?
    Booker: No. But I am afraid of you.

    Visual Novels 
  • Hanyuu of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni is the true identity of Oyashiro-sama, and she takes the form of a young girl, appearing no older than Satoko or Rika.

     Webcomics  

  • minus. isn't really confirmed to be God in the comic - just a girl with limitless unexplained powers.
    • But she does create the Afterlife, and is shown to run it whenever she isn't busy having fun.
  • An old, discontinued webcomic, Acid Reflux, had a little deity girl get her own (used) universe as a present. Her name, of course, was "God". Much humor occurs when she's sucked into said universe, a sort of high fantasy pastiche.
