** The "planet killer arms race" featured in the Franchise/StarWars EU, in which every planet-killer has to be somehow bigger and badder than the last, is one of the most-cited reasons why some fans consider several fair-sized chunks of the EU [[FanonDiscontinuity non-canonical and ridiculous]]. This was only really happening in the nineties, when Bantam had the license. Nearly all of the Bantam superweapons were [[JediAcademyTrilogy Kevin J. Anderson's]] doing. He put at least one in each novel except in the Literature/YoungJediKnights series. Del Ray, for all their perceived faults, mostly uses this gimmick with the [[Literature/NewJediOrder Vong]], who possessed and often were Planet Killers themselves.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series' primary CreationMyth, the interplay between Anu and Padomay (the GodOfGods [[AnthropomorphicPersonification personification]] of [[OrderVersusChaos "stasis/order/light"]] and TheAntiGod personification of "change/chaos/darkness", respectively) led to "creation", sometimes personified as the female entity Nir. Nir favored Anu, which [[DrivenByEnvy angered Padomay]]. Padomay killed Nir and "shattered" the 12 worlds she birthed. Anu then wounded Padomay and presumed him dead. Anu salvaged the pieces of the 12 worlds, putting them together to create one world: Nirn. Padomay returned and attempted to destroy Nirn, wounding Anu in the process. Anu then [[TakingYouWithMe pulled Padomay outside of time]], ending his threat to Nirn forever.
