* Creator/RolandEmmerich loves this trope: ''Film/IndependenceDay'', when the aliens use their {{Kill Sat}}s on the major cities. The degree of destruction in ''Film/TheDayAfterTomorrow'' is so extreme that it feels more like GaiasVengeance. Also the entire second half of ''[[TwentyTwelve 2012]]''.

* Lampshaded in CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs, where an announcer says that "the storm seems to follow a strange pattern, where it is attacking the world's most famous landmarks first, and then moving onto the surrounding area."

* In ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'' we see the effects of the hate plague unfold in three different cities. Something of a subversion for the whole gentleman spy genre in of itself as it actually shows the beginning of what is actually a terrifying way for the world to end, rather than it being stopped with seconds left on the countdown.
