There is the leader and then highly important gods of water, air, and death (usually considered a Trinity).

Mathematically speaking, if A = C and B = C, then logically A = B.

Strangely the "4 elements" of Classical cosmology is not actually all that common in the Indo-European cultures (where you would assume it would be every where). The Gaels had a nine fold system for example called The Elements of the Duile. But the classical elements thing seem to have stuck in the brains of every one as the "pagan model".
Trinities of deities are quite common (though not the three fold "mother maiden crone" thing many people assume either). Pairs are common to the Indo-European cultures as well, divine "twins" are all over the place.
