* Practically every single Pelican dropship in the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series. In fact, there's only one level in the first game in which an aircraft does not crash. Because that level doesn't feature any aircraft.

** Forerunner installations have a tendency to get destroyed in spectacular fashion, often courtesy of the heroes. Heck, the Chief blows up [[spoiler:Alpha Halo]] ''twice''!

* In-film example - ''TheParty'' begins with a location shoot where actor Hrundi Bakshi (Creator/PeterSellers) is inadvertently, and repeatedly, messing up shots. A large fortress set has been rigged to explode, but before they can set up to shoot it, Bakshi goes to lace up a sandal, and rests his foot on the detonator.
* Any main building in a RogerCorman film from his Poe-adaptation years can be expected to go up in spectacular flames by the end. One notable exception, Film/{{The Tomb Of Ligeia}}, has it destroyed by a flood instead. Corman later said that he chose a flood only because he was tired of ending every film with flames.

* [[MonumentalDamage Any remotely recognizable building in a global disaster movie.]] ''Film/IndependenceDay'' was notorious for it, while the director later return to even greater MonumentalDamage in ''[[Film/TwentyTwelve 2012]]'' seemed to take the most glee in this.

** ''SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', made by the same group that made TNBA, had even more explosions (since Superman couldn't simply arrest most of the [[MonsterOfTheWeek monsters/aliens/mutants/technofreaks.]])

* ''RatchetAndClank'': Ratchet has a problem with destroying spaceships for no discernible reason. He's [[AcePilot capable of handling them just fine in a dogfight]], and they don't seem to have mechanical malfunctions, but even [[WordOfGod Insomniac themselves]] have admitted that ''they don't know'' why he crashed that first one. And considering half of the game's fun comes from StuffBlowingUp, it's not surprising he and his RobotBuddy Clank have left more than a few places in worse shape than they found them.
