* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'': When the League ends up in a dictatorial Earth in "The Savage Time", one of the things that's immediately different -- besides big posters about the LEADER and stormtroopers asking for papers -- is how the Daily Planet newspaper headquarters has gone from having a rotating globe at the top to a big hand ''holding'' the globe.

* ''AustinPowers: The Spy Who Shagged Me'' plays with this trope when Dr. Evil picks up a giant globe and starts dribbling it like a basketball. Given the fact that he was on ''Series/TheJerrySpringerShow'' at the time he did it, it's likely that he did this [[RefugeInAudacity mostly to be crass]], especially when his words right before dribbling it is shouting "The World is Mine! The World is Mine, you [bleep]!"

* 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.

* 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.)

* 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).
