* ''Anime/HeartCatchPrettyCure'', a usually happy-go-lucky magical girl series, has one. When the true BigBad, Dune, arrives, he promptly curbstomps the heroines, kidnaps the lead's grandmother, regains his full power and turns Earth into a massive desert, the only survivors being the main heroines [[spoiler:and the people whom they purified from being monsters.]]

** ''Episode of Bardock" ends with Frieza destroying the planet Vegeta and marveling at the destruction he caused. The same event is depicted in "Cooler's Revenge" from Cooler's perspective, "Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan" from Paragus' perspective and is the opening scene to the first episode of DragonBallZKai.
** In "Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan" planet New Vegeta is destroyed by the Comet Camouri with the heroes escaping in the nick of time.



** ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'' [[spoiler: basically repeats this sequence with Freeza destroying the earth after it's absolutely clear that Vegeta has beaten him. Unlike on Namek, he doesn't drag things out, but the ensuing destruction is still quite spectacular, as we see the ground cracking beneath the heroes' feet, volcanoes starting to erupt everywhere, and a good 30-second CGI shot from outer * Franchise/PrettyCure:

** The ''Anime/UnicronTrilogy'' version does it a bit differently: he generates sort of a suction that causes a planet to be ''torn apart'' as it's pulled toward him. By the time it reaches him, the planet is in chunks small enough to be pulled inside the (relatively) small circle on his body. [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Image:Unicron_eats_blizzard.jpg Ouch]].

* The appearance of Bahamut Prime in FinalFantasyXIV. Near the end of the original game, One of the antagonists, Nael Van Darnus, sends one of the moons on a collision course with the planet. As the moon reached closer and closer, the moon egins to break apart until...[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39j5v8jlndM this happens]].
** Even better yet, this cutscene was the last thing any player of FinalFantasyXIV saw before the servers were cut for good. So in a way, [[Bahamut's rampage completely destroyed the entire first world of FinalFantasyXIV.]]

* OlderThanFeudalism: Literature/TheBible's Literature/BookOfRevelation is one huge Apocalypse Wow: disasters unleashed on the world, the Four HorsemenOfTheApocalypse, the rise of TheAntichrist [[note]]or at least "the Beast", the word "Antichrist" is [[BeamMeUpScotty avoided in the text itself]][[/note]], the final battle of Armageddon, the last judgment, a visual tour of New Jerusalem... Evidently, the TropeNamer and the TropeCodifier.

* A lot of the more destructive cards in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' show the spectacle of what's going on, especially the "[[KillEmAll Wrath effects]]".
