* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' includes a fantasy version of this. Baar Dau, a moonlet originating in Oblivion, was stopped from impacting the city of Vivec by the god Vivec. It hovered over the city for centuries as a prison for heretics. After Vivec disappeared and the stop-gap measure implemented by the Temple to keep it in orbit was destroyed, the moonlet resumed its fall as though it had never stopped. Vivec (the city) was destroyed, the Red Mountain erupted, the mainland of Morrowind was devastated by tsunamis, and to this day, the crater/bay that now lies where Vivec used to be still has its waters boiling.
