** In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansTroubleInTokyo'', Raven laments the fact that nobody in Japan drives [=SUV=]s... Nevermind that all the people are probably lamenting the fact that their expensive cars are being used for FiveRoundsRapid.

* This trope, or rather the lawsuits that resulted from this trope, is the reason for the "forced superhero retirement" in the beginning of ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles''.

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Parallel Works 6'' has an alternate Gurren-dan defeating their Beastmen oppressors in an incredibly BadAss way, but at the very end of the short, the ersatz Simon (who is an older, ordinary bloke in this version) is distraught to find that they have completely decimated his hometown in the process.

* In ''Film/DemolitionMan'', Spartan is nicknamed that because of this trope. A reporter asks Spartan why he felt it necessary to destroy a multi-million dollar mall to rescue a child whose ransom was a mere fraction of that cost; hearing it, the girl answers, "Fuck you, lady!" which Spartan deems a good answer.

* Lara Croft has never been particularly kind to the surrounding infrastructure, but the [[VideoGame/TombRaider2013 rebooted]] [[VideoGame/RiseOfTheTombRaider series]] turns it UpToEleven. Be it natural formations that took aeons to form, Japanese WW-II-bunkers, Soviet installations or ancient ruins that have weathered the passage of countless centuries, almost all of them will inevitably crumble into smoldering piles of rubble within minutes of her arrival on site. The amounts of infrastructure and irrecoverable historical legacy Lara routinely destroys on her adventures are staggering. Granted, much of it is caused by her enemies in their attempts to kill her, but another large chunk is definitely her own fault.

* The main goal of the ''VideoGame/JustCause'' series: you destabilise the governments of various rogue nations by blowing the crap out of their property. Most of this property also being ''used by civilians'' (such as water towers and power generators) isn't even lampshaded, hilariously.
** Notice how ''Red Faction: Guerrilla'' and ''Just Cause 2'' have VERY similar premises?

* In the episode of Disney's ''WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries'' that introduces clean freak inventor Mechanicles, the villain attempts to destroy a village. The heroes' attempts to stop him end up forcing the villain to unleash his HumongousMecha beetle to attack the village. As a result of the following battle, the village is demolished. Hilariously {{lampshade|Hanging}}d by the village elder.

* This also applies to the "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_Liberation_Front Animal Liberation Front]]" and the "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_Liberation_Front Earth Liberation Front]]", too. Both groups are fighting for a good and just cause, however, caused in their actions often greater property damage negligently or intentionally. Although sometimes referred to these groups in the United States as a terroristic, not a single case is known in which by one of the groups a human would come to harm.

Added DiffLines:

* The aversion of this trope becomes a plot point in ''Fanfic/DoingItRightThisTime'', as a couple of significant StationsOfTheCanon not happening ''and'' the Pilots not making as many rookie mistakes (what with [[PeggySue not being rookies]]) creates a budget surplus that enables Unit-04 to be brought online much sooner.
