* ''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.

* In the "Project Spoilsport" episode of ''Series/TheGreatestAmericanHero'', America has a secret nuclear launch system which, 24 hours after a nuclear attack, will automatically launch 30 randomly-chosen [=ICBMs=] at our enemies. It accidentally [[spoiler: deliberately]] gets tricked into thinking such an attack has occurred.

The eponymous "Doomsday Machine" from ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', an ancient, almost impervious, save for its ''Main/WeaksauceWeakness'', planetoid sized tube of neutronium which fires a beam of pure antiproton and which literally eats planets for breakfast.

** ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' centered around Eggman trying to get the Chaos Emeralds to power the Eclipse Cannon, which had world-destroying properties. [[spoiler:Things went FromBadToWorse when it turned out it activated another program that turned the ''entire ARK Space Station'' into a Doomsday Device by initiating a ColonyDrop.]]
* ''{{Singularity}}'' has the E99 Bomb, an explosive device the size of a football that represented {{Stalin}}'s answer to America's military superiority. In an AlternateHistory, Nikita Khruschev deployed it against the US East Coast in a preemptive attack. There was no more East Coast after that.
* One of the songs in ''MegaManZX'' is even called ''Doomsday Device''. It's a pretty awesome track. Have a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UWkxTmGcyw listen.]]
* In ''{{Within a Deep Forest}}'', your goal is to stop a bomb designed to freeze the entire world. There is a time machine in the game. [[BadFuture Guess where]] [[SlippySlideyIceWorld it leads]]?
* Played for laughs in the web game ''MastermindWorldConquest''. If you succeed in holding off the unending waves of enemies long enough for your Doomsday Device to succeed, you manage to destroy the world, narrowly getting away in your spacecraft... only to realize that you never thought about [[AndThenWhat what to do next]]. You are then presented with options ranging from flipping off Earth's rubble to giving a BigNo because you forgot to bring Cheesy Snacks.
** Similarly in the game ''EvilGenius'', the player builds his secret HQ and accumulates resources to build any one of a number of Doomsday Devices. The game in won when the player has managed to avoid all the heroes and Secret Agents and actually conquer the world.
* In MetroidPrimeHunters The Alimbic built the Omega Cannon to stop the monster Gorea, but decided against using it for fear that Gorea would be able to mimic the cannon's power. In the game proper the Omega Cannon is the only thing that can harm the otherwise invincible Gorea.
* In the {{Nasuverse}}, the alchemists of Atlas are said to possess a rather large stockpile of {{doomsday device}}s, built to fight back against whatever they predict will end the world. And, later, against their previous {{doomsday device}}s which are now part of how the [[TheWorldIsAlwaysDoomed world will end]].
* ''EVEOnline'' actually has a weapon called the Doomsday Device, used to wipe out fleets of ships. Later it was updated to act as a [[WaveMotionGun Giant Frickin Laser Beam]] to target and destroy large ships such as [[TheBattlestar Capital Ships]] or [[TheMothership Titans]].
