Though fighting god is a common enough trope in certain parts of gaming, especially Japanese role-playing games, the Twitter account, titled “Can you Attack and Dethrone God?” is actually inspired by a recent Fox News segment in which the goal of “attack and dethrone God” was wrongly attributed to the Weather Underground, a now defunct radical leftist movement from the 1970s.

Some of the games the account lists include Persona 5, Breath of the Wild, and Super 3D Noah’s Ark.

As many started pointing out on Twitter when the phrase went viral, killing god is more or less the plot of a bunch of popular games, from God of War to Final Fantasy VI.
