If the situation was already disastrous beforehand and he can't possibly make things that worse than they already are, then he's justified through the GodzillaThreshold. Sometimes this is the result of SummonBiggerFish. A WillfullyWeak character may become one and often after a WorldOfCardboardSpeech.

* The ''LightNovel/DirtyPair'' could give [[Franchise/{{Metroid}} Samus Aran]] a run for her money, 'cuz they've destroyed just as many planets as she has, in the line of duty. Which is how they got their name. And no, [[BerserkButton they do NOT take kindly to being referred to as such, to their faces!]]

* In the comic book tie-in to ''Movie/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'', the Autobot Blazemaster revels in this. While working with the human soldiers of NEST, he opts to engage a Decepticon within a city. When scolded by the NEST commander, he complains that he's a soldier doing a job, and collateral damage is an expected outcome in battle. The commander retorts that by being reckless and not even bothering to try to minimise said collateral damage, he's made their jobs harder because people will be far less likely to report things or offer assistance in future. Blazemaster blows off the criticism, but is horrified when a Decepticon approaches him and tries to recruit him, pointing out that fulfilling a mission while not caring at all about anyone or anything who gets in the way is a very Decepticon attitude.

* In ''ComicBook/MonstersUnleashed'', Kei Kawade can summon monsters powerful enough to take on giant aliens that clash with Thor and the Totally Awesome Hulk. Naturally, when you summon dozens of monsters that can each level cities, there's a ''lot'' of collateral damage. By the sequel series, the government has acknowledged this, having Damage Control keep tabs on Kei to prevent him from intervening in anything less catastrophic than a nuclear meltdown or a swarm of giant bees in order to stop Kei from accidentally wrecking the cities he's trying to rescue.

** It should probably be mentioned that the resource in question was a liquid that made a Transformer invincible to laser fire, to the point that even shots from Omega Supreme, a giant Autobot with a BFG for an arm, were totally ineffective. In addition, Beachcomber discovered the resource first but chose to hide his discovery from his comrades in the hopes of not turning the meadow into a battlefield. Understandable, but less forgivable is the fact that when the Decepticons discovered the resource independently and quickly used it to gain the advantage in battle, Beachcomber selfishly continued to keep quiet. It was only through the effort of other Autobots that they discovered the meadow and turned the tide. It apparently never occurred to Beachcomber that [[BigGood Optimus]] [[TheHero Prime]] would have rather taken steps to safeguard both the resource ''and'' the meadow. Because of this, there are a number of fans who look upon Beachcomber as a coward, hypocrite and traitor for being willing to let his fellow Autobots die to preserve the meadow, and being too stupid to realise that if the Decepticons won, the entire planet would be strip-mined.

* PlayedForLaughs in the British superhero spoof ''ComicStrip/{{Bananaman}}''. Per a hero with "the muscles of twenty men and the brains of twenty mussels," he'll often save the day but comically destroy anything he gets near in the process. The police have a guy whose whole job is patching the holes in the wall Bananaman makes whenever he shows up to help them.

* A possible solution to the infamous Giant Alien Spiders event in ''VideoGame/FTLFasterThanLight'' is to launch a boarding drone through the hull of the station being menaced by said creatures. This takes care of the spider problem, but angers the station's crew due to the damage caused, causing you to receive a meager reward. One alternative is to avert the trope by sending another type of drone in through the airlock instead.

* Lagann of ''Fanfic/HowToDrillYourWayThroughYourProblems'' has a nasty habit of causing huge amounts of property damage whenever he fights. Some times it's unavoidable, like when he summoned Twinboekun to fight Uber and Leet's Titans, or when he fought Lung. Others, such as the time he decided to blow up ABB warehouses with drills to show the cops where they were... not as much.
