** In issue #867, after raiding another world, Comicbook/{{Brainiac}} shoots a missile at the star which it orbits. The sun blows up and the shockwave obliterates the planet.
** And later Brainiac tries to blow Earth up, too.

* In ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' story ''Comicbook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton'' Krypton is seen exploding in the background during Kara’s flashbacks. In the modern version, when Superman and his companions travel to Apokolips to rescue Kara, Batman rigs five hundred Hellspores to blow up unless he inputs the deactivation code. One of them is able to blow a hole down to a planet's core leaving a firepit. Five hundred of them would turn the planet to ashes.
* In ''Comicbook/WarWorld'' a large number of planetoids explode when Franchise/{{Superman}} and Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} fight alien warlord Mongul's star-sized weapon satellite. Warworld itself explodes when Superman reprograms its computers.
* In ''[[Comicbook/{{Supergirl 1982}} Supergirl Volume]]'' #21 the alien race known as the world-seeders nearly blow Earth up while trying to kill Kryptonite Man.

* ''Literature/{{Aeon 14}}: Destiny Lost'': The government of Bollam's World has been using a multi-Jupiter-mass gas giant as a helium-3 factory, using ArtificialGravity to keep it from collapsing into a brown dwarf. When these generators are destroyed by a rival government in an attempt to destroy the protagonists' colony ship ''Intrepid'', the gas giant is converted to a gigantic thermonuclear bomb. That's not the crazy part. The crazy part is that the upper layers suddenly exploding all at once acts kind of like a multi-stage nuclear device in its own right, [[UpToEleven compressing the lower layers beyond density limit to create a black hole]]. As for ''Intrepid'', they're thrown clear by the shockwave and survive because of some AppliedPhlebotinum.

* Probably named for Heinlein, the series ''Series/{{Andromeda}}'' had Nova Bombs. How powerful were they? Well, the Andromeda carrying 40 of them was enough to send resident badass and proud warrior race guy Tyr into a fit because it was enough firepower to conquer an empire. The bombs cause stars to go super-nova, and can be volley-fired into black holes to turn them into white holes.

* Crichton's wormhole weapon on ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' could easily destroy planets, and sizeable chunks of the galaxy, were it ever deployed in warfare.
** Peacekeeper Wars shows that it's more than capable of destroying ''the entire universe.'' And Crichton isn't gun-shy.

* The threat of this trope happening is part of the premise for ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom''. Koro-sensei already destroyed 70% of the moon, and if Class E can't kill him within a year, he'll do the same to Earth.
