* The SciFiChannel absolutely ''loves'' to use this as the solution to their [[DisasterMovie natural-disaster-of-the-week films]], even if it makes absolutely no sense. The sun spewing deadly flares that will [[CriticalResearchFailure ignite the Earth's atmosphere's supply of methane]] and burn up all the oxygen on the planet? Stop the burn with a nuke in the atmosphere. Planet-wide tempest surging out of control because some doofus unleashed an [[SealedEvilInACan ancient Sumerian storm god]]? Nuke the skies and cut off its power supply. ''The moon breaking up like a bad jawbreaker in a cataclysmic shower of meteors that will destroy the Earth?'' Take an A-bomb to its core and seal the cracks. It's official: nuclear weapons are the new [[DuctTapeForEverything duct tape]].

** At the end of ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'', Master Chief hand-detonates a nuclear weapon to destroy the Didact's ship.

** In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 1}}'', the BigBad can be nuked, or can be talked into nuking himself. Trying to kill him with guns results in the former. ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' adds a hand-held nuclear catapult, and giant monsters.
** The GNR radio quest is the straight-played example, where both the problem (giant monster) and the solution (nuke) are introduced at the same time. It's possible to kill the Behemoth without the Fat Man, but it's undeniably convenient.

** Well arguably a subversion -- the whole thing is started by underground nuclear testing weakening the Earth's crust, then a nuclear weapon used as a giant drill. [[spoiler:Then a H-bomb is used to stop the crack, but it's effect is limited.]]

* In ''VideoGame/PathwaysIntoDarkness'', HardLight projections of {{Precursors}} tell UsefulNotes/BillClinton and his cabinet there's an immortal SealedEvilInACan deep under the Yucatán crater in Mexico that's about to awaken in eight days, but that they won't reach Earth for two years. The solution? Send a commando team with an atomic bomb down to the bottom of the cavernous GeniusLoci generated by the slumbering monster's dreams, and blast it back to somnolence.
