* ''VideoGame/TheTalosPrinciple'': [[spoiler: On finishing the game, the simulation is deleted, which is depicted as everything disintegrating and falling apart. [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome It's quite terrifying, to say the least]]]]. ''Road to Gehenna'' show the same event [[spoiler: from the perspective of one still inside, if you choose to stay behind]].

* In the original ''Videogame/PlanetSide'', the Bending that caused the breakup of Oshur continent into 4 islands and scattered the rest of Auraxis across the cosmos culminated in a massive meteor storm across the planet as an unknown voice initiated the "bend sequence". When the game shut down after 13 years, the world ended in a cross-empire party around Ishundar's 'stonehedge' as meteors rained down and the ground shook as the shut down timer approached.

** ''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 space]]

* In ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'', after defeating the Mother Brain and successfully making it back to your ship, the camera zooms out, showing massive cracks in the surface of the planet Zebes, which are apparently even visible from high orbit, before the planet is reduced to space debris. There is a secret sidequest at the end where the last surviving natives of Zebes escape with just moments to spare.
** SR-388 in ''MetroidFusion'', the Biological Research Laboratory space station plummets into the plant and self-destructs, wiping out both in a titanic EarthShatteringKaboom. Planet Phaaze in ''MetroidPrime: Corruption'', with added drama with the Galactic Federation fleet trying to escape in time. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in ''MetroidPrime: Echoes'' with the destruction of Dark Aether, we only get a space view of the half-visible Dark Aether fading from Aether.
