- “Usually the good Lord works in mysterious ways... not today. This here is sixty-six tons of straight up, H-E-spewing divine intervention! If God is love, then you can call me Cupid!”
- “If had known you were going to bring up religion... I would have counseled a less contentious topic.”
A religion is a set of tenets and practices, often centered upon specific supernatural and moral claims about reality, the cosmos, and human nature, and often codified as prayer, ritual, or religious law. Religion also encompasses ancestral or cultural traditions, writings, history, and mythology, as well as personal faith and religious experience. The term "religion" refers to both the personal practices related to communal faith and to group rituals and communication stemming from shared conviction.

Triad is a human religion founded by the self-proclaimed Dasc Gevadim. The followers of Triad believe that everyone harbored three internal lives, and believed you could reach spiritual transcendence by linking the three.
- Main article: Covenant religion
The Covenant (later Covenant Loyalist) religion, given no specific name, is a polytheistic religion that centers around the belief that godhood is a state attainable by mortals and that the Forerunner attained such a state through activation of the Halo Array, which sent them on their Great Journey to salvation. Originating as the belief system of the San'Shyuum, it was eventually adopted and, to an extent, modified by the various races that would later join the Covenant, with the most devoted new members being the Sangheili and the Jiralhanae. It would continue even after the end of the Covenant as the Sangheili faith, although modified by recent revelations concerning the true purpose of the Halo Array.
The Forerunner religion, its name unknown, was a polytheistic religion based on the belief in Precursors, god-like creatures with the power to travel intergalactic distances and accelerate the evolution of intelligent life. It is implied that the Forerunners believed the Precursors had given them the Mantle, a source of Forerunner authority, and believed they gave it to Humanity.
