** In the episode "Marabounta", Jeremie tried to create a virus that would destroy XANA's monsters, using [[BigGood Franz's Hopper's]] journal and basing it off African army ants. At first the huge blob-like monster seemed to work, attacking and devouring XANA's minions. Then something went wrong, and it tried to attack Aelita. Jeremie realized too late that her connection to XANA was causing it to mistake her for one of the monsters, but by then it was out of control and growing larger by the minute, threatening to consume all of Lyoko. (Leading to one of the most chilling scenes of the series to date, Yumi trying to protect Aelita, only to be devirtualized when she was EatenAlive by the thing.) Fortunately, XANA, who at that point needed Aelita alive to complete his plans, [[EnemyMine instructed his monsters to help the heroes]], and due to the brief alliance, they bought enough time for Jeremie to program and anti-virus that eradicated it.

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "[[Recap/FuturamaS6E17Benderama Benderama]]", thanks to an invention of the professor's that can make two half-sized duplicates of an object using its original mass. Bender integrates the device into himself and starts making half-sized duplicates of himself by eating random objects. Each of the duplicates has the same ability. Eventually the replica-Benders become small enough to manipulate atoms directly and start consuming the planet's mass. Eventually, though, the quintillions of nano-Benders get fed up with humans and leave the planet.

* Hostile nanoswarms are so common in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' that there's standard-issue tactics and equipment to stop them; people worried about nanobot infection drink nanotech-fighting chemicals to control them, "nanofilm" is routinely employed to control rogue nanobot swarms, and worst comes to worst, the nanobots will be isolated by ubiquitous AI with gravity-control technology. %%If anyone knows what the employer's name is, feel free to add it in.

** The comic does point out one of the biggest weaknesses of nanobots: Extreme heat. Even when they have evolved plasma shielding, any reasonably dangerously level of heat will overwhelm any defenses the nanites have and cause their inner workings to warp and fail. If a gravitic-enabled AI isn't around to help, it's common to bust out the plasma weapons on wide spread to handle hostile swarms. For bonus points, most PowerArmor in the setting can handle fire without too much difficulty, so you don't even have to worry about your own men.

* In the ''Tales of Tomorrow'' episode "Red Dust", space explorers who've just visited a once-populated world overrun by Red Goo discover the pink crystalline "dust" has infested their ship as well.

* In the ''Series/{{Stitchers}}'' episode "Two Deaths of Jamie B", the eponymous victim was trying to make nanobots to clean up oil spills and accidentally programmed them to recognize the wrong kind of organic molecules, so that they specifically target living things. Fortunately, he figures this out before they are released and shuts the project down. Unfortunately his boss is StupidEvil enough to want to restart it as a weapons project.

* Virus Bombs of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' work on a similar principle to the Red or Black Goo scenario noted above. They utilize something called the Life-Eater virus, which consumes everything organic on a planet and leaves behind massive, highly flammable gas clouds. A follow-up series of incendiary missiles ignites a planet-wide firestorm that scours all life from the surface, leaving nothing behind but lifeless rock. The Imperium uses them in dire situations when [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt a problem can only be solved by destroying a planet]]. For added NightmareFuel, note that the Life-Eater is absolutely in the [[EldritchAbomination Chaos God]] [[{{Plaguemaster}} Nurgle's]] wheelhouse.

They utilize something called the Life-Eater virus, which consumes everything organic on a planet and leaves behind massive, highly flammable swamps and gas clouds. A follow-up series of incendiary missiles ignites a planet-wide firestorm that scours all any remaining life from the surface, leaving nothing behind but a glowing, lifeless rock. The Imperium uses them in dire situations when [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt a problem can only be solved by destroying a planet]]. For added NightmareFuel, note that the Life-Eater is absolutely in the [[EldritchAbomination Chaos God]] [[{{Plaguemaster}} Nurgle's]] wheelhouse. Many of those who have the authority to use these world ending protocols have wisened up, and will prefer to use a [[EarthShatteringKaboom Cyclonic torpedo]] instead.
