* Kratos from ''VideoGame/GodOfWarIII'' can be interpreted as a ''much'' darker version of Christ; A man born of a mortal mother who tore down the established order of tyranny and then gave hope to the world.

* Roger Smith in ''Anime/TheBigO''. His primary weapon is a HumongousMecha, and the setting is a city. Said giant robot also travels via underground rail system and causes massive damage to roads and buildings ''just by appearing''. Every episode inevitably features an enemy which only The Big O can defeat. The Military Police chief Dastun understandably isn't particularly happy whenever the Big shows up.

* Most chases in ''VideoGame/DriverSanFrancisco'' end with you using a semi truck, bus, what ever you shifted into to ram into the target from the oncoming lane.

* 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]].

* ''Film/LoadedWeapon1'': hangs an enormous lampshade on this in the opening scene. Emilio Estevez's cop-on-the-edge breaks up a convenience store robbery, destroying the store in the process. While misunderstanding the proprietor's yells of dismay as thanks, he takes the time to let them know the microwave he was using to heat his snack is broken.

I'm rearranging the film entries in alphabetical order.
* ''Film/{{Hancock}}'' ** One of Hancock's first scenes is him rescuing a car from getting run over by a train...by derailing the train and causing millions in damage. While all the bystanders are yelling at him for the completely unnecessary damage, Ray is the one to point out that even though there was an easier way, he still ''saved his life''. --->'''Ray:''' So ''thank you'', Hancock. Thank you for saving me. ** While his damage is ''usually'' tolerable, it's rarely (if ever) necessary. Even taking off and landing tends to cause small amounts of damage. He eventually learns to control himself, and ''then'' he has a fight that almost destroys downtown.

* ''Film/TeamAmericaWorldPolice''. After killing 4 terrorists, Paris is a burning wasteland. They do, however, get called out on it by the [[FunWithAcronyms Film Actors Guild]], who don't approve very much of the team's destructive tendencies when dealing with terrorists. There's also a protest staged outside the team's headquarters in Mount Rushmore [[spoiler: after terrorists destroy the Panama Canal in retaliation for Team America stopping another attack in Egypt[[note]]And of course, this trope is definitely in play during that scene, as the team ends up accidentally destroying the Sphinx in foiling the terrorists[[/note]].]] * ''Film/VanHelsing'': In his very first scene, Van Helsing accidentally smashes Notre Dame's Rose Window to pieces while fighting Mr. Hyde. His superiors later remark that though his results are good, his methods attract too much attention, resulting in Van Helsing being a HeroWithBadPublicity. -->'''Van Helsing:''' With all due respect, it was Mr. Hyde that did the shattering.

* ''Film/TeamAmericaWorldPolice''. After killing 4 terrorists, ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra'' has the Joes not only wreck Paris is trying (and sort of failing--they stop it, but not until it's already done a burning wasteland. They do, however, ''lot'' of damage) to stop Cobra, they get called out on it by ''banned from the [[FunWithAcronyms Film Actors Guild]], who don't approve very much of the team's destructive tendencies when dealing with terrorists.
