God Male Deity

A god is a male deity, in contrast with a goddess, a female deity. While the term "goddess" specifically refers to a female deity, the plural "gods" can be applied to deities collectively, regardless of gender. The Greek and Roman pantheons were ruled by Zeus, and Jupiter.[1][page needed]

When ancient Egyptian religion developed closer to monotheism, it was Amun, a male god, who rose to the most prominent place.[2][need quotation to verify]

War gods, like the rulers of the pantheon, could often be male, such as Ares/Mars, Kartikeya and Toutatis.[3][page needed]
