* ''Literature/VillainsByNecessity'' depicts a world in which the heroes have defeated the forces of evil and been allowed to run through the world unchallenged... essentially upsetting TheBalanceOfGoodAndEvil in the ''opposite'' direction. As the forces of light continue to spread unchecked the laws of physics twist; nights are shorter and shorter, free will slowly starts to disappear, and a group of villainous cutthroats decide to unleash the SealedEvilInACan before the world is "Sublimated." Sublimation will involve the world being ''consumed'' by light and wiped out, along with everything on it. During a spiritual vision, one of the [[VillainProtagonist villains]] even observes that such an event could threaten the stability of other worlds and lead to a cascade effect, potentially bumping this up to a higher level of destruction.

* In ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank'', [[BigBad Chairman Drek]] tries to do this ''twice''- first with the [[BigBulkyBomb Planet Buster Maximus]] to destroy Hoven, and again with the [[FrickinLaserBeams Deplanetizer]] to destroy Veldin, the latter being used to blow up his new planet ([[KarmicDeath and him]]).

* In ''When Worlds Collide'' by Philip Wylie and Edwin Balmer, the Earth is about to be hit and destroyed by the larger of a twin planet. Fortunately the smaller planet is drop-in replacement for Earth. The story (which arguably is the ur-creation that gave rise to stories like ''Film/FlashGordon'' and the many similar tales that followed), revolves around the attempt of a group of scientists to build a [[TheArk pair of rocketships]] to escape a world facing destruction.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has [[spoiler: the Cluster]]. It's a [[spoiler: gigantic, inseperable fusion, comprised of billions of Gem shards]]. It's currently incubating in the Earth's mantle, and if it forms, it'll crack the planet open like an eggshell. Fortunately though, Steven and [[spoiler: Peridot]] managed to stop it. By talking to it and encouraging it to make friends with itself. Yup.

* In the season three finale of the 2012 ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'' series, the Triceraton Empire comes knocking and prepares to destroy Earth with the Heart of Darkness, a device that creates a black hole that will engulf and annihilate the planet. Despite New York's most powerful heroes, mutants, and crimelords assembling to fend off the invasion, a betrayal from Shredder results in the crew failing to stop the Heart of Darkness before it activates, and thus the entire supporting cast is sucked into the ensuing black hole to their deaths, along with the rest of Earth. It takes a CosmicRetcon six months in the making to go back in time and avert this.
