* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'': Glassing - bombarding a planet with plasma until the whole surface turns into "glass" - is capable of this, but it takes a lot of energy to do, so the Covenant mostly just do partial glassings (which are still often enough to pull off a Class 6).

* The eponymous rings of the ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'' franchise are components of a weapon that causes this on a galactic scale. They were used once in the BackStory to stop the Flood from consuming all life in the galaxy when [[GodzillaThreshold all other strategies failed]]. The main plot of the first three games concerns preventing it from happening again.
** That's not entirely true. Halo doesn't kill every living being. The halo array essentially fires a giant wave of radiation that targets specific cells in the nervous system, as that is how the Flood gain control of a body. There's no evidence that Halo affects plantlife or foliage, and some species lacking a nervous system or unable to be used as biomass may survive. It is possible that Hunters, which are essentially a pack of worms working together as a single being, may survive the firing array, as it's impossible for the flood to infect them.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', there's Starfleet General Order 24, which allows a captain to effectively blast a planet clean of life. Kirk invokes this in the episode "A Taste of Armageddon" when the people of Eminiar attempt to force him and his landing party into a suicide chamber of sorts as part of a treaty towards a neighboring planet in a disturbing alternative to war. The Eminiar leader, Aman 7, is forced to rein on this idea when he realizes Kirk ain't bluffing and, thankfully, Kirk doesn't go through with it.

* In the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' Splat book Elder Evils, this is the most likely worst case scenario for Atropus, the World Born Dead. Should the players lose, his evil necromantic influence would turn the game world into a lifeless husk overrun with the undead.

* This is what ultimately happens to the world in ''WolfsRain.'' That is, [[spoiler: before Kiba dies and Cheza's seeds create paradise to press the reset button for life on Earth.]]

* This is what's going to happen to the Magical World (population: 1.2 billion) unless the heroes Save! The! Day! in MahouSenseiNegima. Specifically, [[spoiler:when the magic sustaining the world (which is on Mars in AnotherDimension) fails, the entire population will be dropped onto the very much uninhabitable surface of Mars. Did I say entire population? I meant 67 million because all of the natives of the Magical World are part of the same spell and don't actually exist apart from it.]]

* In ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', [[spoiler:the Anti-Spiral's defense system]] sets the Moon on a collision course with the Earth. Our heroes calculate that the impact will strip away the earth's crust, causing everything to die: if not from the impact, then from the superheated gasses released. It would cause the earth to become completely uninhabitable for at least a full year. [[spoiler:Our heroes save the day, of course.]]

* ''VideoGame/RadiantSilvergun'' starts with a stone monolith known as the Stone-Like awakening and releasing a blast of energy that kills absolutely everything on the planet. Four humans aboard the ship ''Tetra'' escape into orbit and return a year later due to running out of supplies. [[spoiler:These remaining humans die too.]]

* In ''VideoGame/Homeworld'', [[spoiler:the planet of Kharak is bombarded with Low Orbit Atmosphere Deprivation weapons shortly after the Mothership makes its first hyperspace jump. From what we see, these weapons ignite a planet's atmosphere, ''setting the whole surface on fire.'' The bombardment is so thorough that anything living on Kharak was sure to have perished, if not from the massive conflagration then from the lack of a breathable atmosphere left in its wake.]] This prompts the Kushan to press onward with their journey to search for their home.
