* The tabletop RPG TabletopGame/{{Hackmaster}} has a spell named Fireball: Nuclear Winter.

* TabletopGame/MageTheAscension had a set of items called selective mines. Each of them looked like a large landmine and when properly activated, would totally devastate everything in a large radius - except for a small group of people selected by the user. Handy.

* The apocalypse in TabletopGame/{{Deadlands}}: Hell On Earth came about with ghost rock bombs, nukes made with irradiated GreenRocks. The physical destruction from a "city buster" is fairly limited, but it then releases a storm of damned souls that kill everyone within a 100-mile radius.

* The Carronade or Hex Cannon from ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV'' is one of the more blatant examples seen of the trope. It is powered from the pain and sorrow and despair of human sacrifices who are ''tortured to the point of '''insanity''' first'' and are explicitly selected based on their connection to the target (yes, you're reading this right; it's a FantasticNuke that ''literally'' runs on NightmareFuel).

* ''Literature/TheAscendantKingdomsSaga'': The Great Fire, a ribbon of green fire from the skies sent by Merovenian mages that destroys the manors of the nobles of Donderath, including Quillarth Castle, the fortress of King Merrill, killing most of them. It's left as a RiddleForTheAges whether the mages who sent the Great Fire secretly intended to destroy tame ''hasithara'' magic by killing off the remaining Lords of the Blood, causing ApocalypseHow, or if it was an [[GoneHorriblyWrong unforeseen consequence]] of something done for purely military reasons.

*** Although never stated as 'Ultimate Incantation' like the previous three (and rendered in Latin), Terra Findens (Tearing Earth) is for all the intents and purposes their [[DishingOutDirt earth]] [[LavaAddsAwesome elemental]] equivalent.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': It's revealed in the episode "Monster Reunion" that [[spoiler:the corruption experienced by Gems such as Centipeetle is actually the result of a vast attack released by the Diamonds as they abandoned Earth; the attack is implied to have caused all Gems left on Earth (with the exception of Rose and those she protected) to go insane and devolve into monstrous versions of themselves]].

* In TheGoneAwayWorld, things are portrayed as made by two parts - the physical matter that constitutes them, and the information about what the matter is supposed to be. At some point in the recent past humanity has created Go-Away Bombs, mass-destruction warheads that remove the information while leaving matter intact, and promptly waged planetary conflict with them. As a result, most of the world is drowning in Stuff - nondescript dust-like matter without information, which will latch on the first source of such information it can find in order to represent itself in reality. It just so happens that the most florid source of such information is human thought, and since most people who venture in Stuff-rich areas are hoping desperately it doesn't shape itself into hideous monsters, well...

* ''Literature/SecondApocalypse'': Earwa is largely locked in a MedievalStasis, but the Inchoroi, a race of star traveling aliens, have the Tekne, advanced science that created their sky-ark and their various weapons. When fighting against an Inchoroi army of [[LivingWeapon weapon races]], Kellhus discovers a "golden coffer" in Dagliash, set there as a trap. He recognizes the danger almost immediately and orders the Great Ordeal to flee. Several characters witness the mushroom cloud that follows. Many men are killed in the explosion, and more die from the fallout.

* Sergey Yurchenko's works:
** ''Harry Potter''/''WarHammer 40k'' crossover fanfiction ''School Daemon'': the eponymous daemon Morion tells the inner circle members of the Tzeench's coven he founded that while making and using a nuke takes a lot of muggles, the magical equivalent, e.g. the rite that sunk Atlantis, can be performed by a single wizard.
** ''Neon Genesis Evangelion''/''WarHammer 40k'' crossover ''Paths of Black Crystal'': the Exterminatus rite used by the Empire's High Inquisitors. This magical version works on a much smaller scale, though, just about covering a single city, and can be survived given a rare chain of events.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'':
** ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' introduced something that would later be dubbed as "Infinity Energy" in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]]''. [[spoiler: It was originally used by the King of Kalos, AZ, 3000 years before the events of ''X and Y''. Much like nuclear energy. It was first used as a weapon to end a war. Violently. Later on it was explored for more peaceful purposes such as being an energy source.]] The most horrific part about Infinity Energy is that [[spoiler: It's actually made from [[PoweredByAForsakenChild the life energy of Pokémon]]. Thousands of Pokémon were sacrificed to power AZ's nuke]].
** To a lesser extent. Victini is a mythical Pokémon that can create an infinite amount of energy in its body. This would make it a highly sought after Pokémon.
