* In Fanfic/TheSagesDisciple, Team Caster is this. In their wake, they have left at least two burning buildings, one dead body, three concussions, 18 dead Assassins, and significant psychological stress. This is not even taking into account the ripples that have occurred as a result.

* While most Assassins in the AssassinsCreed universe are precise and direct in their actions, there are some exceptions.
** Ezio Auditore in AssassinsCreedRevelations once set off an incendiary bomb to a cave city in order to carry out an assassination attempt. It went off without a hitch...never mind the hundreds of deaths by smoke inhalation and razing of the town.
** Jacob Frye in AssassinsCreedSyndicate is very single minded in his pursuit of the templars. And as such, causes a LOT of damage in going after their ranking members. His list of destructive deeds include Derailing a train, burning down a medical facility, causing the collapse of Medical regulations, throwing transportation in London into chaos and under the thumb of gangs, crashing a carriage, and most famously, nearly collapsing the British economy just by killing the bank president and causing it to close temporarily.

* Quite common in the FinalFantasy series, but reaches its apex with Zidane in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''. Pretty much every city and location Zidane visits gets spectacularly trashed at some point, earning him the title of the ConsoleListOfJRPGCliches law, "Zidane's Curse." [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], with some irony, in that he's actually [[spoiler: designed to be a harbinger of destruction]].
* One of the few grey areas in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' was Chrom's father waging a war against the ReligionOfEvil Grimleal in Plegia to stop their actions. However loss of soldiers in the war led to recruiting of peasants, leading to no one farming his lands, [[SerialEscalation leading to]] widespread starvation in addition to not destroying the Grimleal, and likely damaging Plegia as a whole. Later in the game, a conqueror from another continent, Walhart also tries to exterminate the Grimleal, but makes enemies with the entire continent, and also fails. [[spoiler: Walhart's supports reveal he was manipulated by hidden Grimleal in his army. One wonders if the same happened to Chrom's father?]]

** Taken [[UpToEleven]] in Dragon Ball Super, when Goku's fight with [[PhysicalGod Beerus]] was causing planets all over the universe to be destroyed as a side effect. The fates of any living creatures on these planets were never mentioned, although later in the series, the Kaioshin did say that the universe only had 28 inhabited planets left, [[InferredHolocaust so yeah]].

* The protagonists in the Dragon Ball franchise often try to avoid this by fighting in uninhabited areas, but it doesn't always work. One notable example in the original manga was when Majin Buu deflected a ki blast fired by Goku, which then hit the Earth and wiped out 10% of its surface. Babidi even [[WhatTheHellHero called him on this]], pointing out that he had just killed a huge amount of people he was supposedly trying to save.

* Agni, the protagonist of ''Manga/FirePunch'' is this by default, due to being a basically immortal being thats been set on fire with special flames that don't go out until the victim dies. As he can't die, he's constantly on fire. However, that property still applies to anyone and anything he touches, so he tends to cause a lot of collateral damage.
** He even [[spoiler:accidentally burns down one of the last major cities in the world due to being punched so hard that he flew through multiple massive apartments, setting each one on fire as he passed. By the end of the battle, the entire city has been burned to ashes with very few survivors.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' Its often used for comedic reasons. Rick has destroyed the earth once to help his son roofie his crush and couldn't have cared less. He doesn't even fix his destruction he just leaves that universe and goes to a new one where a version of him did fix it. Takes down the galactic government by changing the value of their currency. This leads chaos to ensue after the president of earth for the galactic federation commits suicide when rick makes their currency worthless. In the same episode hetelports the citadel of ricks into the gaklactic federation causing many mortys and ricks to be killed in the process. all so he can get his hand on more teriyaki szechuan nugget sauce from 1998. Morty destroys an entire police force to save a gas based alien and then ends up killing it at the end of thee episode when it says it will come back with more of its kind to destroy all carbon based life. This means all that destrucction was also meanuingless. The entire series epitomizes this trope. The devil says rick is worse than him when it comes to destroying things. some even argue he detroyed earth another time in the begining of the pilot episode
