added paperinik and ben 10 omniverse examples
Added DiffLines:
* PaperinikNewAdventures presents in Pikappa the Evronian Empire's Planetary Coolflamizer. What it does is pretty simple: in an instant, it drains an entire planet's worth of creatures dry of their emotions, winning the Evronians billions of Obedient SlaveMooks and a [[EmotionEater giant reserve of food]].

Added DiffLines:
* Ben10Omniverse has the Anihilaarg, a device created by the [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens Contemelia]]. It can destroy an entire Universe (containing multiple dimensions and timelines) with [[BigRedButton ridiculous ease]]. [[spoiler: It can also create an entirely new Universe when activated in the middle of nothing.]]

* In a way, Serpenterra from ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' was this - a many meters high Zord in the shape of a Chinese dragon that had enough firepower to obliterate a planet. It was probably a good thing Lord Zedd couldn't keep the thing charged properly or the Rangers would have had ''problems''.

* In the "Turtles in Space" arc of ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003'',Professor Honeycutt never intended his teleportation device to be a super-weapon, but ''two'' warring empires saw the potential for it to be one, as they could use it to teleport nuclear bombs into the cores of planets.
