A typical Chaoskampf, which is a weather god's battle against a sea serpent, representative of the clash between order and oceanic chaos.

Yahweh was the national god of the Israelites, originally a warrior god with origins outside of Canaan. As the Israelites moved from polytheism to monotheism they began to ditch the Canaanite gods, and during this period Yahweh absorbed attributes of the gods El and Baal-Hadad. From El, the head of the Canaanite pantheon, he absorbs bull imagery and the character of an aged, wise god (as well as his wife Asherah). From Hadad, he gets storm god imagery, including the myth of Baal's struggle against the dragon Lotan (=Leviathan).

[edit] Now with variants:  Indra v. Vritra, Susanoo v. Orochi, Thor v. Jormungandr
