* ''Series/MacGyver'': At the end of "Legend of the Holy Rose", the Temple of the Holy Rose collapses, burying all of Ambrose's miraculous artifacts (although Mac and the GirlOfTheWeek are outside at the time and so do not have to flee through the collapsing temple). Mac speculates that Ambrose had intended this to occur all along.

* Used ad nauseum in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. By the time an episode is nearing its end, you just know that the whole place Batman is currently at is going to collapse or get destroyed in some contrived way.

** If anything, ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' is worse and moves this into outright trope abuse. It's almost assured that the final setpiece will explode into flames somehow, regardless of whether or not it makes any sense. Trying to make a drinking out of this trope '''WILL''' kill you.

** [[spoiler: Then in ''Film/{{Spectre}}'', [[BigBad Ernst Stavro Blofeld]] does this to the abandoned MI6 building in London to kill Bond after some {{Evil Gloating}}. Also combined with an attempt to depress bond if he survives by [[KillTheCutie trying to kill Bond's girlfriend of the week]], which if it succeeded, would have [[RecycledScript been reminiscent of]] {{Casino Royale}} . Somehow, Bond still escapes to bring down Blofeld's escape helicopter. ]]

* In ''Film/JupiterAscending'', the headquarters of Balem's corporation, located on Jupiter, begins to be demolished because the "grav-hull [was] ruptured," and "[t]he gas was reacting to the stockworks", due to Caine's vessel having punctured the barrier around the planet and crashed into several structures. Maybe it was a bad idea to establish a base of operations that could be completely destroyed by a small vessel entering the atmosphere.
