Added DiffLines:

** In ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' the player can choose a dialogue option joking that they'll run through a heavily irradiated area in their underwear in the hopes of gaining superpowers. Doctor Amari feels the need to remind the [[PlayerCharacter Sole Survivor]] that this would only kill them, though there may be a few players out there that did so anyway.

* And industry wasn't far behind either. There were plans for a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear-powered_aircraft nuclear powered bomber]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NS_Savannah cruise ships]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_marine_propulsion#Merchant_ships merchant vessels]] and the nuclear powered car mentioned below. [[ScienceMarchesOn We learned more about radiation]] and most never left the planning or prototype stages.

This outcome was averted with the US Navy, which has a sizeable fleet of nuclear-powered submarines and aircraft carriers.

* [[GaiasVengeance Gaia]] loves to subvert that trope: {{UsefulNotes/Chernobyl}} has become [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4923342.stm a wildlife haven]]. On the other hand, the (perception of the) level of radiation released in the mind of the public is very different than the reality and the animals aren't necessarily going to worry about the level of radiation anyway. It was only after the first few weeks after the disaster that wildlife began to thrive in Chernobyl, after the radiation levels dropped. After that, the radiation was still dangerous for humans, but not for animals- most animals have much shorter lifespans (about ten years or so), and thus do not have enough time for the radiation they've absorbed to turn into cancer. That's not to say that there ''weren't'' mutations in the animals (see ThatOtherWiki's [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chernobyl_disaster article]] for an example image; beware of BodyHorror), it just simply was not as widespread as fiction or popular perception would have us believe. You still can't eat any animals there.

* The {{Roguelike}}, {{Elona}} has Etherwind, which starts blowing every 3 months, and unless you find shelter, induces [[BodyHorror horrible mutations]]. As opposed to normal mutations, which can be good or bad.

* The "Frei" line of spells in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 1}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' are described as "Nuclear Fire" and cause extra damage to enemies who are weak to debilitating physical status effects.

* The Hierarchy in ''UniverseAtWar'' love radiological weapons. This may be because radiation heals purebred hierarchs, and they get to use the dead and dying indigenous population as zombies.
* The TEC in ''SinsOfASolarEmpire'' never leave home without a truckload of nukes for siege purposes. The Marza dreadnought can also be upgraded to re-purpose one for ship-to-ship warfare. Their superweapon, the Novalith Cannon, fires a massive, high-yield nuclear bomb at their hapless enemies' planets. One shot reduces the planets' population by 90%, and makes the rest die of radiation poisoning, two completely sterilizes the planet and makes it unusable for 5 minutes in real-time, which works out to several weeks game-time.

* Used in ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'', as a [[GRatedDrug G Rated]] FantasticDrug. Mira gets addicted to phasing through nuclear cores, which ups her power and speed to somewhere in the range of Superman and Flash. Though I suppose this could also be a subversion, as she suffers radiation withdrawal, complete with unkempt hair, dark circles under her eyes, and general creepiness.

* In Creator/IsaacAsimov's Literature/{{Foundation}}, everything good is atomic. The kingdom of Anacreon is seen as horrifyingly barbaric for their burning of fossil fuels.
