* ''{{Manga/Bleach}}'' takes it even further[[spoiler:, with the Shinigami creating a dummy of Ichigo's hometown to prevent Aizen from turning the whole town and its inhabitants into the Royal Key. The original plot of the town is temporarily placed in Soul Society. However, Aizen is able to reach the real town after curbstomping the Shinigami (and of course, much of the dummy town turned into rubble). Several people are killed when Aizen walks through town, but thanks to Ichigo's intervention (via Facepalm of Doom), not much of the real town is lost. And to think most of the town's population had their souls sucked away by Yammy]].

*** A season 2 episode of ''Mighty Morphin''' has a conveniently empty PLANET. When the Rangers need to get the Mcguffin to transfer powers to new Rangers they go to the deserted planet. It's deserted to avoid InferredHolocaust when Zedd ends up blowing up the entire planet.

** This trope is becoming increasingly averted in recent seasons, most notably in PowerRangersMegaforce, where the fights and monster attacks are clearly shown taking place in populated areas.

* Twice in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'': When [[spoiler:Doomsday]] crash-lands on an island, MissionControl makes sure to mention that it's uninhabited. Then Batman takes the fight to the abandoned docks of Gotham. Of course, it might all be for moot since MissionControl fired a nuke ''directly above'' the cities...

* Twice Three times in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'': When [[spoiler:Doomsday]] attack Metropolis and is spotted up on top of Lexcorp's tower, the news reports how fortunate it to be night time, because the citizens are at home and not at work. Moments later, it unleashes an energy wave that heavily damages numerous [[SubvertedTrope lit-up skyscrapers]]. Later, it crash-lands on an island, Striker Island, which MissionControl makes sure to mention that it's is uninhabited. Then Batman takes the fight to the abandoned docks of Gotham. Of course, it might all be for moot since MissionControl fired a nuke ''directly above'' the cities...Gotham where he fought Superman earlier.

* In ''[[VideoGame/InazumaEleven Inazuma Eleven 2]]'', [[ItMakesSenseInContext the aliens come down and suddenly attack Raimon Jr. High with soccer balls of mass-destruction]]. Their assault on the school happens in the middle of the day, and students can be seen in the cutscene walking about the campus, indicating it must be either school hours, or the very least not too long after the final bell. Despite this, the entire school seems to be miraculously empty, as it's blown up and crumbles.

* When Yamato explains that you'll be shooting down the massive Septentrione Alioth in ''VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2'', it's pointed out that this will surely kill anyone in the city of Sapporo, where it will crash. Yamato then reveals that everyone in Sapporo is ''already'' dead, due to the demons. Maybe not so "convenient". [[spoiler:And maybe also not so "empty" -- it's suggested that Yamato was lying to make sure everyone was on board with the plan, since the alternative was to let Alioth destroy the tower holding back the Void. When confronted about this, he explicitly refuses to clarify one way or the other, since the outcome was the same either way.]]

* Two episodes of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' feature massively destructive bending duels: one between Aang and Zuko; and one between Aang, Zuko and Azula, which raze two abandoned villages to the ground. Justified since, with a hundred-year long war, some villages are bound to have been deserted.
