probably since the evil being doesn't suit the God's fetish, they'd be too disgusted to lay their hands on it.

if it's a hot mama, I feel the Zeus will gladly pour his thunder with MOTIVATION.

What is a god, but of your own imagination?

Ps. Trying to sound profound but instead sounding like a hillbilly moron.

Also, those who can, work, those who cannot, supervise. Think the gods like your regional manager and you will know how that feels.
More like those who can, supervise, those who can't, work. All about that perspective.

They have a fetish for watching humans get dirty. If a human gets dirty enough and manages to survive, they get invited to a big orgy in the sky. Like other animals, the gods want to breed with the fittest specimens.

Somethings not mentioned.

The gods have two or more factions and a god can lose power if their domain is invaded. Thus forcing them to home sit.

They are extremely long lived. So much so that time has just distanced them from having a hands on approach. They literally can't care anymore, because every time they get attached, that something eventually dies.

They are lower gods, and upper management prevents them from interfering.

The world's mana can't sustain their physical bodies anymore, so they exist as a disembodied entity.

The gods were never real and it's just a lie by the church to shortcut knowledge and/or use the heroes as soldiers.

What would be some good reasons that gods would empower a Hero and send them to fight rather than just smite the evil being themselves?
They can't walk on mortal grounds, their sheer aura will destroy the world. Hence they choose heroes.

Gods, and many other beings, exist on a other concurrent plane. We on the physical and them on the astral. Both planes have access to the mana plane. Through this plane the Gods interact with the physical, and us with the astral. Hero’s are blessed by the gods.

From most light novel I’ve read, the reason is usually they can’t go there themself because of the God’s rules. It prohibits gods to interfere with the mortals.

If you're looking for an excuse to use a hero instead of a god because that's how it's always done, don't. Let them interfere as much as you like.

If you're just curious, a lot of other people have given good ones.

But I guess one that hasn't been mentioned, is that it's for the sake of the Hero? The god prefers for people to live their lives to the fullest- something that most Isekai protagonists weren't doing before they were called.

That excuse goes out the window if anybody else lacks a motivation though, since they could have just as easily picked that person to be the Hero instead of summoning someone from another world.
