**Parodied in the third Mobile Suit SD Gundam short where both Gundam and Zaku accidentally cause one while competing in a survival marathon for the olyimpics. The credits seem to indicate only the Colosseum was ruined.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' movie, it looked like Numbuh 1 was going to do a heroic version of this with the moon on the captured-by-evil Earth, but it instead just fired the sizable treehouse-ish moonbase, the KND's headquarters. [[spoiler:The villain shrugs it off too, but the [[GambitRoulette real plan]] was to bring the KND's LaserGuidedAmnesia device down to Earth to use on him]].

* In the '80s remake of ''Film/FlashGordon'', Ming the Merciless is sending the moon spiraling down into the Earth. It doesn't get there, but it gets close enough that things must have been pretty messed up.

* ''VideoGame/MegaManX5'' has Space Station Eurasia hurtling towards Earth as a major gameplay element. While allowing the space colony to crash into the Earth [[NonstandardGameOver does not end the game outright]], doing so not only locks you into the BadEnding; [[LostForever you will no longer be able to play as Zero as well]], [[spoiler: due to him going [[BrainwashedAndCrazy "Maverick"]] from the resulting impact]]. Even though the Maverick Hunters canonically destroyed it, the leftover debris still has an adverse effect on the planet.
