* 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.

* Parodied in ''Webcomic/KongTower'', where this is described as the Sklodowska Reaction, and the professor describing it to his students has to lock the door and won't open it until he's assured they won't kill themselves trying to give themselves superpowers by exposing themselves to radiation.

* In ''ComicBook/XMen'', the exact cause of mutant powers are rarely discussed. In the 60's however, Professor X explained his powers as the result of his parents working on the first atom bomb. The Beast's powers have been explained as the result of his father being exposed to radiation, while Sunfire was born in Hiroshima on the day when they dropped the atom bomb. (Even the comic book series as a whole, back in the 1960s, used to bear the subtitle "children of the atom.") All of these explanations have later been either RetConned or completely ignored.

* In ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'', "crazy space radiation" seems to do a lot of, well, [[CaptainObvious crazy]] things, like grant superintelligence to dinosaurs and create "NASAGHASTS", malevolent astronaut ghosts. It's not surprising, considering how the comic is influenced by ''Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' and other '80s nostalgia full of this trope.
* Both played straight ''and'' parodied in [[http://www.asofterworld.com/index.php?id=530 this]] ''Webcomic/ASofterWorld''.
* ''Webcomic/{{Chiasmata}}'': Misanthrope, a friendly, social girl who is so radioactive that can't even be in the same room as anyone without some serious detriments to their health.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'', not only is the ship run on fusion, [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff200/fv00170.htm dislike of it is allowed to run to rampant paranoia.]]

* Parodied in ''Webcomic/TheNonAdventuresOfWonderella'', where Wonderella uses radiation to accelerate ''fermentation'' of some beer that she's brewing...radiation ''from her cell phone''. This naturally creates a beer monster, and then things get weird. Well, weirder.
