* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'', the prologue mission ends with the BigBad, [[RenegadeRussian Colonel Volgin]], stealing a DoomsdayDevice from a Soviet research base, then destroying the base with an American nuclear warhead. In an interesting take on the trope, this turns out to be less for covering up his involvement and more for framing the United States -- by making it seem like the U.S. is supporting his military coup, the Soviet government becomes less likely to believe America when they offer to help.

* In ''Film/ReturnOfTheLivingDead'', the last survivors call the military for help and are assured they will take necessary steps... [[spoiler:not to save them though. Apparently standard operating procedure for this kind of event is to ''napalm'' the affected area. This fails brilliantly as the fire just kicks more of the zombifying chemical into the air, to then fall as acid rain on an even larger area.]]
