* An unusual example in the ''Literature/NightfallSeries''. Myra burns her own book so that the vampires wouldn't get what they need. She hates doing it because she loves books and considers this the greatest story she has ever written.

* In ''Videogame/{{Tyranny}}'', Kyros the Overlord's Law includes a ban on any knowledge Kyros deems dangerous. The Sages flouted that Law by hoarding forbidden knowledge in the Vellum Citadel. When the forces of the Disfavored and the Scarlet Chorus failed to dislodge the Sages through conventional means, Kyros got fed up and responded with a rather extreme example of this trope: they had the Fatebinder unleash the Edict of Fire on the Citadel, which reduced the entire region into a blasted hellscape that would continue to burn as long as forbidden knowledge remained within the Citadel's walls.

* "Welcome to ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'', where bad comics burn." Usually Linkara only metaphorically burns comic books, but he has done it literally a few times to comics that were especially bad.
