* Koro-Sensei of ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'' destroyed almost all of the Moon prior to the story beginning. Whatever he did, it rendered the Moon into a permanent crescent. What he did was eventially revealed late in the manga: [[spoiler:nothing. What actually destroyed the moon was an experiment involving a mouse infused with antimatter cells GoneHorriblyWrong. Koro-sensei didn't destroy the moon, but took the blame to hide the truth behind his origins, which is another related matter]].

* SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker tries to draw a giant smiley face on Gotham using an [[KillSat orbital laser]] in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker''. Not just an act of cartoonish evil, as amongst the landmarks to be destroyed in the smiley face would be a hospital where Terry's girlfriend is recuperating, Terry's house where his mom and brother are, and Wayne Manor.

* The 2002 Remake of ''[[Film/TheTimeMachine2002 The Time Machine]]'', after some [[SarcasmMode bright spark]] decided to mine lunar caverns with nuclear weapons, by 2037 the the moon's orbit has become disrupted and leaving the Earth barely habitable for the next several aeons, signalling the end of all human civilisation and major technology. When Alexander see's the moon again in 802,701, it is shown to have been split into several chunks and surrounded by an asteroid field of former debris.

* Averted with ''Film/{{Moon}}'', a film set on a mining operation on the moon. The mining takes place on the dark side of the moon, as an example of ShownTheirWork, since defacing the side of the moon facing earth would have untold effects on local wildlife.

Want to send a message to the whole Earth that you're awesomely powerful, and probably egotistic and evil, too? Or maybe you just want to show to absolutely everyone how much you care for your beloved like [[Anime/EurekaSeven in the main picture]]? Just fire up your biggest laser cannon or longest-range missiles and use them to deface the Moon by blasting your face or [-INSERT YOUR MESSAGE HERE-] onto it. After all, the Moon has no weather or pesky tourists to mess it up... so any mark left on it, even if it's just etched into the dust, will probably remain there until the Moon itself is destroyed. Your message will be set in stone, pardon the [[{{cliche}} cliché]].
