* ''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.

** The Imperial Defense Grid is ''the'' nuclear option; the details are kept secret, but its purpose is to defend ''Creation'' against wholesale invasion.

** The Imperial Defense Grid is ''the'' nuclear option; the details are kept secret, but its purpose is to defend ''Creation'' against wholesale invasion. One lone Dragon-Blooded soldier managed to crack its defenses and gain control in one of Creation's most dire moments. She became the Scarlet Empress because nobody wanted to screw with her after that.

** From the same era, the original ''[[TheBardsTaleTrilogy BardsTale]]'' games had a spell named ''Gotterdamurung''. The four-letter codeword used to cast it? "NUKE."

* ''[[Literature/InheritanceCycle Eragon]]'' [[spoiler: Literally. Any sufficiently skilled magic-user can create a nuclear blast by uttering "Be Not" in the ancient language, converting their mass to energy. This is how the Rider Thuviel killed Glaerun of the Forsworn and turned Vroengard into {{Mordor}} so Galbatorix wouldn't find the hidden cache of Eldunari and dragon eggs.]] It's also how [[spoiler: Galbatorix tries to pull a TakingYouWithMe after Eragon and the Varden have beaten him in the climax.]] Angela can seemingly also do it, but vows not to unless there is absolutely no other option to win a battle.

* In the early days of ''Anime/{{Macross}}'', the good guys used "reaction weaponry" which were [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial not nuclear weapons in any way shape or form]], instead being [[{{Handwave}} officially antimatter weapons]]. Later series, either not having to deal with or outright ignoring the NuclearWeaponsTaboo, have been more open to out-and-out using nuclear weapons as part of the setting.

** ''Discworld/ReaperMan'' we get to finally see one up close. It was powerful enough to destroy an entire [[spoiler: living]] city.
** Pratchett was in fact formerly a scientific journalist specialising in nuclear physics, so his books are full of in-jokes about the subject.

** ''Discworld/TheLastHero'' gives us Agatean Thunder Clay. Cohen the Barbarian and his Silver Horde fill a fifty-pound keg with the stuff and plan to deliver it to the gods. Such an explosion would not only blow up Cori Celesti, but also erase the Discworld's magic field. And with no magic, there would be no Discworld.

* In earlier Zelazny's series ''Dilvish the Damned'' Dilvish escaped from hell with the knowledge of several highly destructive dark spells. Unfortunately they are [[AwesomeButImpractical way too powerful]] and devastate an area as large as a city. He refrains from using them most of the time for much the same reasons.

* ''VideoGame/MinecraftStoryMode'': The Formidi-Bomb (AKA the "F-Bomb") is a powerful explosive developed by Soren considered the only thing capable of destroying the Wither Storm. [[spoiler:While it's capable of severely damaging the Wither Storm and blowing it to pieces, the heroes fail to grab the command block in time, thus causing it to quickly reform.]]

* 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...
