* Wizards from the ''EnchantedForestChronicles'' have a variation on this. The ability only works on magical creatures and plants, because what they're actually doing is [[EnergyAbsorption stealing the magic from them]]. It mostly shows in the destruction of the titular forest wherever they go, and on dragons. That doesn't work very well because a side-effect makes the dragons start sneezing fireballs all over.

This is the PureIsNotGood version of the FriendToAllLivingThings. While a Friend To All Living Things causes animals to flock to him/her because of their sweetness and innocence, the evil energies of an Enemy To All Living Things causes animals to flee from them or, if he/she's powerful enough, ''die''. In that case, their energies can also cause [[WalkingWasteland plants to rot and decay.]]

* Mr. Mathew Chinnery, on ''TheLeagueOfGentlemen'', is a completely accidental version of this. He's not evil; he's just incredibly accident-prone, due to an ancestral curse.

* As part of his general campaign of frightfulness against the Roman Empire, AttilaTheHun ''claimed'' that everywhere his horse trod, the grass would never grow again. [[CaptainObvious Since he rode all over Europe and the grass seems to be doing quite well nowadays, it is possible that he was lying about this.]]

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, this is a trait of Hagravens, a species of flightless [[HarpingOnAboutHarpies harpies]] who were once mortal women that traded their humanity for access to powerful magic in a ritual that requires human sacrifice. Save for their [[BarbarianTribe Reachmen]] followers, who revere the Hagravens as matriarchs, the Hagravens seem to view ''life itself'' as their enemy. This [[ArchEnemy puts them at significant odds]] with [[PlantPeople Spriggans]], who are considered "[[GaiasVengeance Nature's Guardians]]" and are often found attacking Hagravens.

* [[BigBad The Grox]] from {{Spore}} are hated by all living things. In fact, habitable planets cause them to die.

* ''Film/RaisingArizona'': Leonard Smalls (the "Biker Of The Apocalypse") murders various animals that are standing alongside the road he's biking through with a severe amount of overkill (a double-barreled SawedOffShotgun blast for a lizard and ''a high-powered hand grenade'' for a bunny) on his EstablishingCharacterMoment.



* Elmyra in ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' utterly terrifies any FunnyAnimal that she encounters, as her attempts to "love" cute critters [[AndCallHimGeorge tend to cause extreme pain]].

* Elmyra in ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' utterly terrifies any FunnyAnimal that she encounters, as her attempts to "love" cute critters [[AndCallHimGeorge tend to cause extreme pain]]. She is such a horror that when her dead pets come back to life to get revenge, Elmyra's attempts at "playing" again with them (which causes further BodyHorror) and "clean them up" (which dissolves them on the sink) horrifies them and they ''try to kill themselves again to get away from her''.

* ''AgeOfWonders'' (and sequels) has a couple versions of this. A unit with the "Path of Decay" ability will kill tiles in its path, turning them to wasteland, while the spell "Darkland" will gradually produce the same effect on all tiles within your spellcasting range. This can have in-game impact, as certain races get economic and morale bonuses or penalties on certain terrain types.

* [[PowerGlows The Shining Ones]] of Creator/DavidEddings' ''[[Literature/TheElenium The Tamuli]]'' can cause the immediate decomposition of any organic matter they touch... most notably, living humans. This is the result of a very literal case of CursedWithAwesome, and since they're mostly rather gentle, they {{Wangst}} a lot whenever they actually have to use it. Fortunately, they've learned to control it, so it only activates when they want it to... while it's not stated outright, it's likely that when the curse was originally inflicted on them, it [[PowerIncontinence killed anyone they came in touch with]], other Shining Ones being the sole exception.
