Added DiffLines:

* Two from the ''Animation/TheMindsEye'' series. In ''The Gate to the Mind's Eye'', the sequence "River of Souls" shows some type of weapon destroying a world implied to be Earth. From ''Odyssey into the Mind's Eye'', the sequence "Volatile Planet" shows a much slower version of this as a small spacecraft is trying to escape.

* In SergeyLukyanenko's ''Literature/ALordFromPlanetEarth'' trilogy, quark bombs are relatively small spheres. One is fully capable of starting a process of total subatomic fission that is impossible to stop and consumes a planet in a matter of minutes. Even small chunks of the planet can re-start the process on another world if they happen to make it that far. Luckily, the bomb has to be delivered by ship, as teleportation renders it inert. After only two uses, it was banned by the entire galaxy. The only safe way to dispose of the bomb is to take it to a very remote area of space and blow it up.

** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E12NightmareInSilver "Nightmare in Silver"]]: The soldiers stationed on [[AbandonedAmusementPark Hedgewick's World]] have a planet-buster bomb, which the orders are to use in case of Cybermen. Clara confiscates the detonator for the bomb, [[spoiler:and then, after the Cyber-army has turned up, the Cyber-Planner calling itself "Mr. Clever" destroys the detonator. Also, Captain Ferrin, who could voice-activate the bomb, was killed by a Cyberman earlier. Fortunately, there's still a way for the bomb to be activated -- dwarf Porridge is [[KingIncognito actually the Emperor]], and he can activate the bomb. Everyone still alive on the planet is transmatted to the Emperor's ship before the planet blows, which it does spectacularly.]]

* In the first ''[[VideoGame/RatchetAndClank2002 Ratchet & Clank]]'' game, the villainous Drek needs to remove a planet in order to give his man-made world the perfect orbit. Drek's tool for achieving this goal is the appropriately named Planet Buster. The weapon does produce an Earth Shattering Kaboom, but not on the planet you'd expect.

Drek's tool for achieving this goal is the appropriately named Planet Buster. However, Ratchet steps in and foils this plot before it can be launched, and so Drek attempts the same scheme ''again'' with an orbital laser called the Deplanetizer, with Ratchet's homeworld in its crosshairs. The weapon does produce an Earth Shattering Kaboom, but not on the planet you'd expect.
