* Emperor Palpatine was this in ''Literature/StarWars''. Aftermath: Empire's End reveals that he ordered Gallius Rax to implement a contingency plan in the event of his death, during which Rax would take control of the Empire and lure it and the Empire's enemies to the planet of Jakku, where he would detonate the core and wipe out both, leaving the galaxy to rot. Rax was then to establish a new Empire in the Unknown Regions. [[spoiler: Rax is killed before he can accomplish this, but he does pass on the second part of the plan to Admiral Rae Sloane, who uses it to establish the First Order in the Unknown Regions.]]

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' has an unusual twist on this trope; the Evil Forest that your airship crashes into after the introduction turns to stone after defeating its core. In a subversion, one of the Tantalus bandits doesn't make it out in time. That was Blank. [[spoiler:[[ He got better]].]]

* ''VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh'' inverts the trope. Jet's first encounter with a Seeker (a powerful attack program) is in an archaic mainframe computer. The Seeker can't run on the old machine and periodically stalls out. Jet needs to defeat it to ''keep'' the old mainframe from collapsing.

* Justified in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}; Palaces are created from the distorted worldview of the people the Phantom Thieves target. Defeat the target, steal their Treasure (source of corruption), and the whole place comes crashing down. Which is a bit of a problem for the protagonists.
