** In "Marge vs. the Monorail", Mr. Burns stores nine drums of nuclear waste in a single tree, causing some of the tree's branches to turn into purple tentacles and a squirrel inhabiting it to gain EyeBeams and a long prehensile tongue, both of which it uses to its ecological advantage.

''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' movies aside, this is not a particularly common trope in UsefulNotes/{{Japan}} as, due to WorldWarII, the Japanese are much better acquainted with the effects that atomic radiation has on human physiology than most. In fact, the Japanese {{Kaiju}} genre (which includes ''Godzilla'') was known for highlighting the negative effects of radiation, rather than the positive effects we often saw in American fiction of that era.
