* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' the entire city will sometimes be conveniently empty when the Titans fight. This is a good thing, as anything is fair game for the Titans to use as a weapon in battle, from cars to street lamps. The most {{egregious}} example however is in Season 4 finale "The End (Part 1)" when Cyborg lifts an office building and uses it to smash Plasmus through two other buildings.

** Infamously played straight in ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'': "Thankfully, no one was hurt." On an island populated by sentient, talking locomotives who regularly smash into things and run off the rails, it would be absolutely ''astounding'' if no one has actually died from a rail accident yet.

** Infamously played * Played straight an astounding amount of times in ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'': "Thankfully, no one was hurt." On an island populated by sentient, talking locomotives who Locomotives will regularly smash into things and run go off the rails, it would be smash into buildings, and absolutely ''astounding'' if demolish anything in their path, but no one has actually died from ever seems to be seriously harmed. Sometimes they even crash into ''occupied'' buildings and everyone gets out without so much as a rail accident yet.black eye.

* Discussed in ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia''. During a training simulation in an empty building, Bakugou is berated for using a blast that blew a large hole straight through several floors. Since the buildings in real-life villain attacks will most definitely ''not'' be empty, heroes should cause as little property damage as possible.


Added DiffLines:

** ''Film/JusticeLeague2017'': The climax takes place in a Russian town that was abandoned after a nuclear meltdown happened 30 years ago, with a few people just recently moving back nearby. This allows for plenty of destruction with minimal collateral damage or danger to civilians.

* Subverted in ''Anime/ReCreators'' when Mamika fires off her Magical Splash Flare in the real world, where people were ''definitely'' present. [[spoiler: It's played painfully straight when she fights the Military Uniform Princess in the middle of town, where [[FantasticNuke her last blast]] barely raised an eyebrow despite being shown to destroy the buildings they were centered around.]]]
