** The Lion, a machine specially built to hard-shutdown Europa's most powerful ([[AIIsACrapshoot and craziest]]) artificially intelligent fortress, has been given something of this treatment as well - it's more like a Fantastic {{EMP}} Nuke though.

** A new move in VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndUltraMoon, [[spoiler:Light that Burns the Sky]], is basically this. It's exclusive to [[spoiler:Ultra-Necrozma, being its Z-move]], and the end result of the move is a massive explosion.

* ''Literature/TheFirstLaw'' trilogy focuses around [[Villain protagonist the Wizard Bayaz']] quest to obtain an ancient, forbidden artifact in order to defend The Union against his rival, Khalul. The artifact in question is a source of great power, forbidden from use for its' destructive power, and using causes people to vomit and makes hair fall out. DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything?

** The Bloodline Curse that ''Changes'' revolves around might count. Take a member of a bloodline, the younger the better, and perform a powerful ritual to kill every living relative they're descended from. In theory, this would only kill a handful of people, but when Harry [[spoiler: shoves the most recently changed vampire of the Red Court in place of the intended victim]] it annihilates an entire subspecies of vampire in one shot.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' lore, he greatest warriors of the ancient Yokudans ([[{{Precursors}} ancestors]] of the modern Redguards) could use a sword technique known as the Pankratosword. Using it, these warriors (known as [[MasterSwordsman Ansei or "Sword Saints"]]) could "cut the atomos." They claim this is how Yokuda sank beneath the sea, and it is dangerous enough that even the [[PhysicalGod Dunmeri Tribunal deity, Vivec]], backed down when Cyrus threatened to use it[[note]]This was a bluff, and Cyrus did not know how to do it.[[/note]]. [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique This technique is now forbidden]], and quite possibly lost to history as a result. Its use is said to be why most of Yokuda, the original homeland of the Redguard, sank into the ocean. ([[UnreliableNarrator Though other sources state that this is unlikely]], and that the Redguard people left Yokuda to escape much more standard problems, such as a corrupt government.)

* ''TabletopGame/StrikeLegion'', has '''WAY''' too many to list. Most weapons carried by PowerArmor or [[HumungousMecha frames]] would qualify as WeaponsOfMassDestruction in most other settings, if they aren't capable of outright blowing up a planet.

* In ''Podcast/MetamorCity'' the world's equivalent to World War II ended with the Allied powers using an incredibly powerful spell whose details are still classified a hundred years later to vaporize the heartland of the aggressor nation. Killing millions of people and opening a mana rift that has left the area uninhabitable to ordinary humans ever since. Though it's been overgrown by a strange jungle of new organisms since then.

** "Be Not" does "not" convert the entire caster's mass into energy (such a spell would not result in classic nuclear fallout). It simply unmakes the caster down to atomic/subatomic level. As a result the energy equivalent of a nuke is released (similar principle to fission reaction). If anybody ever figured out the words needed to start complete matter to energy transformation (i.e. words for "dissolve" which would work to the logical limit) they will probably end up annihilating Alagaesia by accident while testing the spell.
