* Clarke and [[StephenBaxter Baxter's]] book ''The Light of Other Days'' describes an enormous asteroid that's going to collide with the Earth; large enough that the heat released will more or less sterilize the face of the Earth, such that only the most basic bacteria can survive. It eventually transpires that [[spoiler:this had already happened once, billions of years ago, and the civilization that existed then hid away the life that would eventually evolve into us]].

* The Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse featured a prototype Death Star and the ''[[ComicBook/DarkEmpire Eclipse]]''[[ComicBook/DarkEmpire -class Star Destroyer]], both of which mounted a powered-down version of the Death Star's famous WaveMotionGun from ''ANewHope'', which could "only" "crack the planetary crust" and would likely result in something like this.

** Special mention to the IronWarriors short story "The Heraclitus Effect", in which Honsou uses an experimental ''agricultural aid'' to hyper-accelerate the growth of remnant Tyranid growths on [[spoiler:Tarsis Ultra]] - out of ''spite''.

* The eventual fate of Earth in Creator/IsaacAsimov's ''Robots-Empire-{{Foundation}}'' novels, due to gradually increasing background radiation, which starts as a Class 0 event and gradually rises up to this level. It takes long enough that everyone eventually moves out into space.

* When the Death Star uses its laser (at minimum power setting!) in ''Film/RogueOne'' on [[spoiler: the Holy City of Jedha]], the resulting blast sends a shockwave through the mantle that sends the ground ''peeling off the moon's surface''. The entire surface of the moon was probably ravaged as a result and won't be habitable for probably thousands of years without major terraforming efforts.

* The FinalBattle of JohnCWright's ''Literature/WarOfTheDreaming'' is expected to result either in this or Class 4 event. For obvious reasons, not many people want it to happen.

* Frank Herbert's Franchise/{{Dune}} series, as well as the sequels by Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson include the Obliterator weapon. This weapon was stolen from the Machine Empire by the Honored Matres and used in a SaltTheEarth retreat across the galaxy. They later use an Obliterator against Arrakis in an attempt to destroy the natural source of Spice and a number of their enemies (including Darwi Odrade, Sheanna, and Duncan Idaho). In the Dune sequels, the Guild Navigators use an Obliterator against Richesse at the behest of the Honored Matre rebels to cripple the Bene Gesserit. Although the use of the Obliterator destroys all life on the planet, it's later revealed that a number of the worms of Dune knew that the attack would come (being possessed with prescience thanks to Leto II) and survived the attack by burrowing deep into the planet's crust.

* The "Destinations" setting in [[HeroSystem "Post-Apocalypse Hero"]] takes place after a solar flare sterilized the Earth. [=PCs=] are among the few people who were far enough below ground to not be vaporized. Oh, yes, the total absence of plant life not only cuts down on food options but could thoroughly hose oxygen levels if you can't find a way to fix matters.
