* In an [[AvertedTrope aversion]], Lina Inverse from ''{{Slayers}}'' is ''called'' "[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Enemy of All Who Live]]" due to her... rather destructive temper. She displays none of the signs of this trope apart from everyone running away when she starts to cast a spell, and given that many spells in Slayers-world tend to be highly destructive [[FireBalls and]] [[IncendiaryExponent usually]] [[StuffBlowingUp explosive]] this is probably a good idea no matter who's casting them.

* In the ''TabletopGame/DarkSun'' setting, every single wizard is an example of this trope; they drain life from the plants around them to fuel their magic. Some learn to limit their destruction so as not to cause permanent damage. Most... don't. The most powerful example of the latter is the Dragon (not to be confused with the [[TheDragon trope of]] [[ThisTropeIsNotAnExample the same name]]), which consumes animal as well as plant life and whose depredations are largely responsible for the ravaged state of the Dark Sun world.

* The Blighter Prestige Class in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', which is the anti-Druid. One of the first powers they gain is the ability to cause deforestation, and they are required to do this every single day to gain their daily spell allotment. They also have stunted casting and need to have a number of Druid levels that can't do anything. The class is quite infamous for being very poor.

*** Casting this and looking for an anthill is a sure way to annoy a DM.
**** Nothing easier than that, rule 0: every colony is one creature.



* Elven vampires in the ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' setting are cursed with the Black Thumb, which kills plants on contact. However, while small plants die instantly, larger ones take a few hours, and trees take about a week, the vampire feeling the pain they suffer as they die. Unfortunately, touching a tree is a requirement for their [[TeleportSpam tree-stepping]] ability, [[MortonsFork which they must use to avoid death]] if [[ContractualBossImmunity reduced to zero hit points.]]

* Elven vampires in the ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' setting are hated and feared by woodland animals, who flee from them in terror, a cruel fate for someone who was so loved by them in life. Even worse, they are cursed with the Black Thumb, which kills plants on contact. However, while small plants die instantly, larger ones take a few hours, and trees take about a week, the vampire feeling the pain they suffer as they die.

* In ''{{GURPS}}'' the disadvantages Frightens Animals and Lifebane.

* In ''{{GURPS}}'' the disadvantages Frightens Animals and Lifebane. Frightens Animals is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Lifebane is essentially the uncontrollable ability to kill any life that comes within a certain radius, as long as it's small enough. For example, grass and mosquitos would be affected, but not a centuries-old oak tree or an elephant. This sounds like an advantage on paper, but because it's hard to keep up TheMasquerade when grass is dying wherever you walk.



** Interestingly, since the Chaos Gods are always wrestling with their duality, Nurgle is ''also'' a FriendToAllLivingThings. If you can get past [[ThePigpen the smell]] he's actually a pleasant entity to deal with, and encourages his followers to act the same way ([[AffablyEvil albeit evilly]]). Despite his corrupting and destructive nature, Nurgle sees himself as a ''creative'' force in the universe. Kind of hard to imagine since he is the god of disease and corruption, but when you break it down he's just singleminded: Nurgle loves life. '''''All''''' life. [[BodyHorror Bacteria]] [[ExactWords are alive]].

* This is the "blessing" conferred upon Princess Belladonna in the seventh ''VideoGame/DarkParables'' game. Anyone she injures, even slightly or accidentally, will die.

* [[TheDeathOfSuperman Doomsday]], who was an attempt to create the UltimateLifeForm via granting him the ability to die and come back to life with the ability to adapt to whatever had killed him and dumping him on the savage pre-historic Krypton. The suffering of dying and resurrecting countless times has given him an instinctual hatred for all life and he thus considers even the smallest and most harmless creatures as threats to be killed instantly.
