** Frieza destroys Planets Vegeta and Namek, Gohan blows up the Makyo Planet, Cell blows up King Kai's planet while trying to destroy the Earth (although it ''is'' worth noting that King Kai's "planet" is small enough for you to walk around in less than three minutes), and Earth isn't the last planet destroyed by Kid Buu.

** Frieza is the first character who built his reputation on being able to do this, and we've confirmed that he destroys Planets Vegeta and Namek, Gohan blows up the Makyo Planet, Cell blows up King Kai's planet while trying to destroy the Earth (although it ''is'' worth noting that King Kai's "planet" is small enough for you to walk around in less than three minutes), and Earth isn't the last planet destroyed by Kid Buu.Buu.
** The noncanon NonSerialMovie villain Broly had his movie opening with the aftermath of him destroying ''an entire galaxy'' when he flew into a rage.



** The God of Destruction, Beerus, is the strongest planet buster in the series—especially apropos since planet busting is his job as it relates to preserving room for growth in the universe. [[spoiler:He's strong enough to completely destroy an entire galaxy at full power, if not more.]]

** In ''ComicBook/TimeAndTimeAgain'', Dev-Em the Daxamite activates explosives planted in the Earth's moon that are rigged to explode and destroy the moon. Saturn Girl stops the countdown with only a few seconds to spare, but the Linear Man, who realizes that the moon's destruction is the only thing that can send Superman back to his own time, shows up to resume the countdown, and it explodes, taking the Linear Man and all the people living on the moon with it.

** Even then, [[SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale the explosion would look painfully slow by sic-fi standards.]][[note]]The speed of the explosion would be about 25,000 miles per hour, while the diameter of the Earth is about 8,000 miles[[/note]] To achieve an explosion as fast as that of Alderaan, it would take a far more ludicrous amount of energy.

* In ''Film/GodzillaVsDestoroyah'', it's revealed that Godzilla's heart is a nuclear reactor. When Birth Island erupts and exposes Godzilla to a bed of radioactive materials, he absorbs too much and begins to undergo meltdown. Unfortunately, his self-destruction will ''cause the next Big Bang and take the entire universe'' with him, sending scientists and the military scrambling for a way to prevent it. Things get more complicated when Destoroyah arrives on the scene, making Godzilla's meltdown occur faster and become more powerful due to his rage at Destoroyah's actions (mainly killing his son). [[spoiler: Thankfully, though, the military, utilizing tanks with freeze rays, manage to avert the explosion, but his radiation still makes living in Tokyo a death wish. Then his son is revived by a life-force transfer and he makes Tokyo habitable again.]]

* Can be invoked by the player in the Nintendo3DS AR Games. When playing with the globe, all you can do is spin it around by shooting it at different angles. However, shooting it repeatedly causes it to start turning red. Should you keep shooting it beyond that state, it ''explodes'' into a million fiery pieces, leaving behind a message that says "Take care of our planet" and is accompanied by creepy doomsday-like music that shifts into a sad melody.
