* Takahashi-Sensei wrote a short story in the early 1970's (with many of the plot elements later ending up in ''UruseiYatsura''). In this tale, three alien races all decide to blow up Earth for their own reasons and launch tiny planet-busters, all of which end up in the same person. Then they discover each other and compare notes. The Horrible Truth: Their planet-busters all work by different principles, and if they go off together in one person, they will literally destroy the universe. So the aliens all set about making sure nothing bad happens to the person with the Doomsday Devices inside him, resulting in an age of galactic peace and unity.

* ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}'' has two examples:
** The Paradox Core is a giant PACT space station that can destroy entire systems by collapsing a star into an artificial black hole. [[spoiler:The Solar Alliance reverse-engineers a downscaled version called the Tactical Paradox Warhead, a bomb capable of blowing up a planet.]]
** The Sharr’Lac is an [[LostTechnology ancient Ryuvian dreadnought]] that can destroy everything within a half-lightyear radius via a powerful energy pulse. [[LivingRelic Sola]] reveals that there used to be entire fleets of similar ships, and that they could potentially destroy the universe if they all fired at once. To prevent this, the Ryuvian Emperors installed safeguards so that only a daughter of the royal bloodline could activate a Sharr’lac, [[PoweredByAForsakenChild at the cost of her life]].

* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress''. Build your own doomsday machine. Envelop the world in fire and water and then mix them both and bury the world under a bed of obsidian. The type of doomsday device you make is limited only by your imagination and how many pathetic minions you kill trying to build it. The most infamous example would be Project "Fuck the World" of {{Boatmurdered}}, which flooded the surface map with magma.

* The "ICBM" mod from the Voltz Mod Pack for ''{{VideoGame/Minecraft}}'' features several powerful bombs and missiles you can craft, including an Antimatter bomb which destroys literally ''everything'' in an 100-block radius. In previous updates it could even destroy the normally indestructible Bedrock.

The DoomsdayDevice is the crowning achievement of any self-respecting OmnicidalManiac and MadScientist. He is usually in the process of creating one at all times, dreaming of the day he can use it to TakeOverTheWorld.
