* ''MetroidFusion'' is all about how Samus' actions in ''Metroid II: The Return of Samus'' were by-and-large a big mistake, because now she's got to deal with a threat that the Metroids were keeping in check. Also a bit [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop warped]], in that Samus solves the problem by [[spoiler:''blowing up planet [=SR388=]'', thus making everything else native there, besides the Metroids she already wiped out, go extinct as well]] (though it's implied that in the years since Samus destroyed the Metroids, the X Parasites had grown out of control and overwhelmed the planetary ecosystem, meaning most of its species would have been extinct already).

* Used in ''{{Vintergatan}}'' -- the mission in the first installment was to gather lifeforms from other worlds which could help clean up the pollution on Earth, so Earth could be considered for admission into the intergalactic council. The protagonists did, of course -- [[FridgeLogic though never bring up what sort of an effect this would have on the ecosystem.]]

Added DiffLines:

* It may be unintentional, but there is a ''subtle'' one in ''VideoGame/{{Civilization}} V'': desert cities can build a solar power plant instead of a nuclear plant, but they [[MutuallyExclusivePowerups can't have both]]. The two plants have the exact same effect, but nuclear plants consume Uranium and solar plants don't -- meaning that building solar plants helps you save limited resources. (Astute tropers will notice that said resources will be devoted to [[NukeEm bombing other Civs]]. Well, we said ''green'' aesop, not ''pacifist'' aesop).

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'':
** Subverted in [[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS1E3TheAsset episode 3 of season 1.]] Quinn is a villain who uses ecologically unsafe methods such as strip mining to make his fortune, but in the end it is little more than a side detail. [[spoiler:Doctor Franklin Hall]] is ultimately the threat of the episode, and tries to kill everyone (including Quinn) because he knows Quinn can't be trusted with his new technology.
** Parodied in [[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS3E13PartingShot episode 13 of season 3.]] In the middle of a serious mission, Fitz complains that the Russians clear-cut an entire forest for their base, muttering "No wonder the planet is dying." Hunter, [[SkewedPriorities who is in the middle of a life-threatening mission at the time]], asks Fitz if he got around to watching that nature documentary Hunter lent him. Coulson, a little bewildered, has to bring them both back on track.
