*** By way of illustration of the commitment of the US military to this plan: At the time of the Japanese surrender, a third atomic bomb was being loaded for transport at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico. It was planned to be dropped on Tokyo a week later. When the surrender notice came in, the shipment was stopped.

** ''Manga/JacoTheGalacticPatrolman'' introduces the Galactic Patrol's Extinction Bomb, capable of killing off any life form on the planet. It's used if the danger on the planet is ''that'' bad... Or whatever is attacking it is unstoppable, as [[MercyKill this quick death will be faster and less painful than the attacking enemy murdering everyone]]. When he came to Earth to deal with an impending Saiyan invasion, Jaco had orders to use it if the Saiyan was too strong (that is, an adult as opposed to a child)... And he admitted it would have killed ''only'' the Earthlings, as the Saiyan are immune.

** Despite unleashing the power of Vegito and Trunks somehow harnessing the power of the Spirit Bomb, Zamasu ''still'' won't go down and threatens the ''multiverse'' by merging with it itself. This forces Goku [[spoiler:call in the Future version of the God of Gods Zen-O, who decides this universe is just too corrupt and just ''eradicates'' it.]]

** Back in the original ''Manga/DragonBall'', Pilaf realized he could never take over the world with Goku around (or, using the Dragon Balls, ''keep it''), so he resorted to track down the rice cooker where [[SealedEvilInACan the Demon King Piccolo had been sealed in centuries before]]. King Piccolo is an AxCrazy CardCarryingVillain with more power than anyone in the world was known to have at the time, and if he got back his youth he'd become even ''stronger''. King Piccolo being called a Demon King for a reason, [[EvilIsNotAToy his reward to the Pilaf Gang for freeing him and helping restore his youth is to force them to jump from their own airship without parachutes]].
*** Muten Roshi's original plan to deal with King Piccolo had been to recover the Dragon Balls, including the two Piccolo had already in his possession, and wish him dead. Upon witnessing Piccolo ''swallowing'' his two Dragon Balls [[GenreSavvy specifically to prevent such a trick]], Muten resorted to the [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Mafuba]], the same technique that had sealed Piccolo away, fully knowing it would kill him and seal those Dragon Balls away with the demon.

** The ''Wicked God Cards'' [[note]] ''Devil God Cards'' in the original japanese. [[/note]] from the Spin-off Manga ''Manga/YuGiOhR'' were developed as a countermeasure against the Egyptian God Cards, with each ''Wicked'' monster being able to counter its ''Egyptian'' counterparts effects. Though conceived by [[GodzillaThreshold this purpose]], they were never created out of fear they would be misused as the first set of God Cards, though eventually, the main villains of this story would end up having them created to use against Yami Yugi.

** In the Dressrosa Arc, Doflamingo is forced into this when Luffy and crew shatter the {{Masquerade}} that he had been using to keep control of the country while maintaining his underground deals as TheDon of perhaps the entire world. He can't let the truth get out, so he uses his Devil Fruit's ultimate technique: the Birdcage, imprisoning the entire island and letting nothing in or out. But that's not the extent of it: in order to ensure that nobody ever learns the truth, he plans to ''kill everyone on the island.''

* Interestingly, in Manga/OnePunchMan, it's the antagonists who frequently have to cross the point of no return when they realize how freakishly powerful Saitama is. It never works, [[VictoryIsBoring to Saitama's dismay.]]

** Dr Genus, leader of the House of Evolution, unleashes as his last card his most dangerous creation Asura Rhino, a powerful but extremely unstable mutant that he had kept locked after deeming it a failure. The only reason Asura Rhino lasted more than 2 seconds was because Saitama wasn't really all that focused on the fight.
** Boros, the leader of the alien invaders, and easily one of the most powerful being in the galaxy, was forced to use a technique that drastically augmented his strength at the cost of the shortening of his lifespan during his battle against Saitama and threw him at the moon. Saitama "simply" jumped back to Earth without a scratch, so Boros followed by his ultimate, planet-busting attack... Which Saitama dispelled with a single blow, which shockwave actually killed Boros.

** Ordering the creation of the SPARTAN-II program was considered this by ONI Command. The Insurrectionists on the colony worlds commonly used coordinated terrorist tactics in order to forcibly declare independence from the UEG. The UNSC Navy and Marines weren't able to keep up, even though they had far greater numbers, due to the collateral damage that a large scale military intervention would have been caused. Thus, kidnapping and manipulating six-year-old children into sociopathic walking tanks was considered preferable to the potential loss of innocent life that a drawn-out civil war would have caused.

*** [[TheCorruption Chaos]]. A cult uprising is one thing, but if daemons are rampaging around at will, the world may be past saving. Even if the Imperium managed to cleanse the planet, the taint of Chaos would remain, like lingering radiation [[{{Dissimile}} that's also sentient and teaches people how to build dirty bombs]]. As Literature/CiaphasCain, [[note]] THE HERO OF THE IMPERIUM [[/note]] notes, the problem with destroying a planet in the grip of Chaos is that past a certain point the world isn't quite physically ''there'' anymore, so the best you can do is try to quarantine it.
