Correcting a typo.
** Additionally, a DLC for the first game involved stopping a group of Batarians from dropping an asteroid on a heavily-populated human colony. This is also the first time players layed eyes on a Batarian. Not a very good first impression (story-wise, they've been in a state of UsefulNotes/ColdWar with the Systems Alliance for a few decades).

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', the aboleths responded to their puppet state of Aztlan getting too uppity by grabbing a meteor and dropping it on Aztlan. This proved [[GoneHorriblyRight way more potent than they'd intended]], killing a lot of aboleths as well. Ironically enough, given that aboleths despise gods, it turned out that the stone in question was capable of empowering mortals to godhood, which played a role in the origin of several deities, most notably Cayden Caillean (who took the Test of the Starstone while drunk and still has no memory of it).

* In ''NetRunner'', normally the corporation can target the hackers with goons and hit squads, which deal two or three damage out of the hacker's five live points. A corp willing to [[UpToEleven go that extra mile]] can use the card "I Got A Rock", which drops an ''asteroid'' on the hacker for [[NoKillLikeOverkill a total of fifteen damage]].

* [[BigBad Colonel Zarpedon]]'s plan, in ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'', is to destroy Pandora by using Elpis, its moon, as the candidate in order to decimate the ArtifactOfDoom hidden within the planet. The said plan involves using Helios' [[spoiler:WaveMotionGun]] in order for the moon to crumble, as its remains are hurled towards the planet. ** The plan failed, [[{{VideoGame/Borderlands2}} of course]], but it leaves a [[FallenHero terrible scar]] to the man who happened to save both the planet and its moon.

[[folder:Roleplay]] * ''Roleplay/DestroyTheGodmodder'': The [=UOSS=] was a gigantic spaceship summoned in the second thread. When it was destroyed, its chassis fell onto the Battlefield, killing almost everyone on it. [[/folder]]

** So why isn't this part of the "Moons" category? Because [[spoiler: [[InterfaceSpoiler Dalamud was never actually a natural moon]] - it was a colossal satellite constructed by the Allagan Empire (who else?) to harness Bahamut's aether as a power source for Syrcus Tower. Once it was brought down, it no longer supplied energy to the tower, and after several years, the tower's stasis field wore down, reawakening the last Allagan Emperor, Xande, and causing a big, brand new problem for Eorzea.]]

* In the ''Series/MonstersVsAliens'' episode "The Beast From 20,000 Gallons", an asteroid (which Dr. Cockroach has named [[FluffyTheTerrible Big Ned]]) is headed for a collision course for Earth. An attempt to blow it up with a rocket is complicated when B.O.B. ends up inside the rocket.
