"I'm your Venus, I'm your fire, at your desire."—Shocking Blue, Venus
Thalia: Wow. Apollo is hot.Thalia: That's not what I meant.
Percy: He's the sun god.
When the gods are divine in their beauty as well as power, they've earned the right to be called a Hot God.
Invariably, a Love Goddess is always a Hot God. Note also that several goddesses (from a multitude of pantheons) were seen as befitting of the Lady of War/Hot Chick with a Sword/Hot Amazon archetypes, so it seems divine power may be telling of how attractive power is.
- The goddesses of Ah! My Goddess.
- Zeus of Saint Beast is every bit as good looking as his Angelic Beauty harem.
- Kamisama Kazoku is quite possibly full of them.
- Haruhi Suzumiya.
- Father in Fullmetal Alchemist after 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 Pantsing, the anime had him keep his old man voice while in that form.
- Hanuman from The Return of Hanuman has a Heroic Build, which might be the reason a squirrel is really attracted to him.
- God (played by Alanis Morissette) in Dogma could count as one. Jay mentions when She kissed him, he popped a semi.
- 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.
- Percy Jackson and The Olympians, being based on Greek Mythology 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.
- The Valar in The Silmarillion. In their case they're 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 Ermine Cape Effect. They choose whether to take a masculine or a feminine body depending on what suits their personality.
- Dweia from The Redemption of Althalus.
- Pretty much every single God ever in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess.
- In season 6 of Supernatural, 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—"
- Aphrodite/Venus may as well be the Ur Example since it was kind of her main shtick.
- Other hot Greco-Roman gods were Apollo, Dionysus, Hermes, Hera, Ares and... well, most of them really.
- Babylonian: Ishtar
- Aztec Mythology: Tlazolteotl
- Egyptian Mythology: Isis, Nephthys, Bast. And Anubis, at least for the Furry Fandom.
- Finnish: Loviatar
- Norse Mythology: Sif, Freyja, Baldr. (Loki isn't bad-looking, but his tendency to change sexes when he feels like it and his personality issues are more attractive to modern admirers than to Old Norse believers.)
- Sumerian: Inanna
- Japanese Mythology: Benten
- Dungeons and Dragons
- Exalted: Luna is both a Hot God and Hot Goddess. (This is in a setting where Everyone Is Bi.)
- Scion has notes about how the few aversions in their pantheon handle it.
- This very wiki has a bevy of 'em with its Trope Pantheons, and they come in many different flavors (male, female, human, nonhuman, good, evil, etc.).
- Cosmos of Dissidia Final Fantasy.
- Depending on your interpretation, the superboss of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, Minerva, is strongly related to The Planet's consciousness, either being its physical embodiment or goddess. Here, take a look.
- Fire Emblem:
- Fire Emblem Tellius has Ashera, the Goddess of Order and Restriction. While she is only mentioned in lore in Radiance, she is actually seen in Dawn. Very beautiful, perhaps otherworldly so, but she's 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 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. Going through a few hoops (namely, recruiting her Dragon Sephiran/Lehran during New Game+) will reward the player with the benevolent Ashunera's return during the extended epilogue.
- In Fire Emblem Gaiden there were two warring sibling Dragon Gods, Mila and Duma: Mila was never seen, but Doma looked like an Eldritch Abomination. Both were given pretty good-looking human forms in the Gaiden manga. And then, in the Gaiden remake (Echoes): Mila was a Cute Monster Girl (basically, a tall and gorgeous woman with dragon tail and ears, a horn on her forehead, Anime Hair, etc.), while Duma's human form had Hidden Eyes but otherwise fitted in... and then DEFINITELY became this trope in the gacha game Fire Emblem: Heroes.
- Ys I & II feature Feena and Leah.
- La Pucelle Tactics has Goddess Poitreene.
- Asura and Inanna (who were based on Hindu and Sumerian gods, respectively) from Tales of Innocence.
- The Harvest God (a red-haired hunk) and the Harvest Goddess (who looks different in most of her incarnations but is still beautiful all the same) of Harvest Moon.
- Palutena of Kid Icarus.
- Medusa (the Big Bad) originally co-ruled Angel Land with Palutena until she was banished for her spiteful action towards humans. Palutena cursed her, transforming her into a giant, cyclopic, snake-haired monster, but upon defeat, she assumes a less hideous appearance. Her redesign in the upcoming Kid Icarus Uprising cements her as a Cute Monster Girl/Gorgeous Gorgon.
- Touhou: Suwako is more Cute God than Hot God, but there is the fact that Sanae is her great-great-great-...-granddaughter.
- Grune of Tales of Legendia turns out to be one of these.
- Muramasa: The Demon Blade gives us the pair of Fujin and Raijin. Fujin is more "Cute" than "Hot", while 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 softer side), it's a safe bet to assume that they're lovers.
- Mortal Kombat:
- Raiden, the God of Thunder, assumes the form of a very tall and very handsome adult man with a Nice Hat; his alternate costume in the DA/D/A trilogy ditches the hat, revealing Raiden to have a Long-Haired Pretty Boy mane of White-Haired Pretty Boy. In fact, he's one the prime sources of Mr. Fanservice among female fans of the series. In Mortal Kombat X he looks notoriously older than in 9, adquiring something of a Silver Fox charm.
- It's a bit of a stretch, but the likes of Fujin and the nameless Water and Fire Gods could also fit the bill. And after his cameos in the Mortal Kombat X Story Mode, Fujin definitely fits in.
- In Armageddon, the defeat of Blaze usually results in the victor being granted a surge of godlike power, but only a few of them actually become bona-fide gods. Rain and Taven (both demi-gods; they share a father in Edenia's protector god Argus) ascend to full godhood, whereas the younger Sub-Zero and Nitara respectively assume the form of an ice god and blood goddess. 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 his fellow Black Dragon clanswoman to be his wife (this backfires, as Kobra crumbles into ashes when Kira kisses him). The Elder Gods also turn Sheeva into a destroyer goddess in her ending. Liu Kang, on the other hand, defeats his former Mentors Raiden (now a vengeful god willing to protect Earthrealm at any cost) and succeeds him as protector god of Earthrealm. The last one happens again in Liu Kang's Arcade Ladder ending MK9, although Liu Kang ends up as a power-mad tyrant.
- In Mortal Kombat 11, Cetrion is pretty much Mother Nature as a Kombatant. She's also REALLY beautiful. In the Story Mode, Liu Kang fuses with Raiden and pretty much becomes a deity himself, and he's as handsome as before - if not even more.
- Althena and Lucia in the Lunar series.
- Any of the goddesses in Hyperdimension Neptunia. Especially former goddess Magiquone/Arfoire
- 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 Almalexia from Morrowind, 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 Vapor Wear.
- You can also download high-poly Almalexia mods.
- All the New Olympians at Whateley Academy in the Whateley Universe. 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.
- My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic
