* The logo for ''TransformersArmada's" "Unicron Battles" arc has the titular villain cradling Cybertron. Granted, it's less effective here because Unicron is slightly smaller than Cybertron, but still.

* [[ComicBook/TheSpectre The Spectre]] has done this on multiple occasions, both in literal and figurative senses. However, he's an odd heroic example of the trope, shown to be protecting Earth rather than dominating it.
* In [[ComicBook/AllStarSuperman All Star Superman]], one of the covers shows Supes himself holding (well, it's sorta floating there) the Earth. Benign example though, as he is fondly observing it.

* After starting up the original ''VideoGame/{{Strider}}'' ArcadeGame, you're presented with [[http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130529072714/strider/images/6/60/MeioArt1.png this artwork]] of [[BigBad the Grandmaster]] scrolling upwards while holding the Earth in his hands and [[EvilLaugh laughing evilly]]. This image became representative of him, and has been recreated in some of his later cameo appearances (like his card in ''Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3''.

* Taken literally in one of the ''SuperFriends'' shorts. An alien being named Colossus is a giant who looks like a Viking -- a Viking who's taller than the planet Jupiter. He picks up the Earth between thumb and forefinger, and puts it in a bottle as a souvenir. (Apache Chief has to defeat Colossus by saying "Inekchok" over and over until he grows to be the same size, then wrestling with him. While thus distracted, Superman lifts the Earth out of the bottle and puts it back in its proper orbit.)

Added DiffLines:

* The US government's [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Total_Information_Awareness "Total Information Awareness" project]] logo featured a globe bathed in rays emanating from an eye-in-the-pyramid. The way this symbolism highlighted the [[BigBrotherIsWatching Orwellian overtones]] of the project [[NotHelpingYourCase turned into something of an embarrassment]], and the program was ended (though with most of its functions continuing under different names).

* In early 2014, the TheWyattFamily (a heel stable in the WWE) began using the song "He's Got the Whole World In His Hands" during their feud with JohnCena to accentuate the Wyatt stable characters' gimmicks as a psychopathic cult leader intending to rule the WWE by fear and brute force. Multiple times, Wyatt Family leader Bray Wyatt would begin singing the lyrics to the spiritual in an evil manner; other times, [[CreepyChildrenSinging a children's chorus]] all dressed in brown cloaks and wearing lamb masks was brought out to sing the song, in an attempt to intimidate Cena before his matches against Wyatt.

* In ''{{Persona 3}}'' and ''Persona4Arena'', Akihiko Sanada's Persona Caesar invokes this motif: it carries a broadsword in one hand and a model of the Earth in the other. Unlike most examples, though, Akihiko is never depicted as anything other than unambiguously heroic, if obsessed with becoming the best he can at what he does. "[[ToBeAMaster The Man who Lusts for Power]]," indeed.
