* One AlternativeHistory of WW2 has the first nuke dropped not on Japan, but on Berlin, to hasten a German surrender and decapitate the leadership. The story ends on Hitler trapped in his Bunker as it fails to withstand the impact of a weapon it wasn't built to counter.

* ''WatershipDown'', the TV series, inverts this as a positive version for the heroes, after Hazel manages to get the other males to do their bit digging their new burrow with the doe, Blackberry. At one point, all the gang is working on one area when the ceiling partially collapses. However, no one is hurt and the rabbits find that the accident cleared away much of the material to create a very nice great hall for their burrow.

** [[spoiler: Then in ''Film/{{Spectre}}'', [[BigBad Ernst Stavro Blofeld]] does this to the [[MonumentalDamage abandoned MI6 building in London]] to kill Bond after some {{Evil Gloating}}. Also combined with an attempt to [[PyrrhicVictory ruin Bond's life if he survives]] by [[KillTheCutie trying to kill Bond's]] {{girl of the week}}, which if it succeeded, would have [[RecycledScript been reminiscent of]] {{Casino Royale}}. As the building comes down, you can see the {{Oh The Humanity}} on the faces of other MI6 characters such as M. Somehow, Bond still escapes to bring down Blofeld's escape helicopter. ]]
