* In the ''Anime/SailorMoon'' anime, Sailor Saturn is theoretically capable of destroying the world just by bringing down the tip of her weapon. Thing is: she's a ''protagonist''. So in the anime, she only ever ''starts'' doing this as a threat against certain {{Big Bad}}s but someone always has to stop her. In the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]], she actually ''does'' destroy the world, just once, at the end of the Death Busters arc. Since this is ''Sailor Moon'' and the main character has "reviving people and/or planets" explicitly as a power, it recovers. The manga also notes that Saturn slumbered during the Silver Millenium until the Talismans carried by Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto awoke her after the Moon Kingdom's destruction, causing her to also destroy the remnants of the Kingdom and allow a new world to be reborn (along with herself and the other Outer Senshi).

* In ''Film/TheMolePeople,'' the protagonists accidentally discover a subterranean civilization descended from the ancient Sumerians and end up destroying them by unintentionally inspiring their ServantRace of mole-men to violently rebel. This is actually a pretty common setup in many "jungle pictures" from the 1940s and 1950s: a group of well-intentioned scientists and explorers stumble upon a LostWorld that's been chugging along on its own just fine before these big dumb white guys showed up, and promptly inadvertently bring out its catastrophic end.

* ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'''s plot is entirely made of this. [[spoiler:The protagonists were tricked into activating the Luna Tower, causing the Eclipse and destroying half the population of Weyard just because they were railroaded from a {{Fetch Quest}}, and their only way of breaking through helps activating said tower without their knowledge. The only way to stop it is by activating the Apollo Lens. It turns out that the Eclipse is just another step to the antagonists' plans; the power of the Lens is what Alex and the Tuaparang forces actually sought for; and the former wants to use it on himself for his own benefit.]]

* ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' protagonist Samus Aran tends to leave the space stations or planets she visits in ruins or [[EarthShatteringKaboom as clouds of debris.]] It's not always her fault - her enemies like to rig their bases to explode if she conquers them - but if Samus shows up in your neighborhood, things are either really bad or about to get worse.

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}: Mystic Square'''s plot is kicked off by a demonic invasion, which prompts the protagonist to travel to the magical world of Makai to put a stop to it. At the end of the game she meets Makai's HotAsHell [[AntiAntiChrist goddess]], Shinki, who tries to explain that [[DesignatedVillain the demons]] were merely ''[[GoodAllAlong tourists]]'', but she's still drawn into a fight with the heroine. In the battle that follows, Shinki's attacks reduce the surrounding section of Makai into a flaming ruin... and once she's beaten, Shinki and the protagonist [[DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu sit down for tea]] [[DefeatMeansFriendship and make up.]] Fortunately, Shinki's status as Makai's [[RealityWarper creator]] means that presumably the damage she caused wasn't permanent. Unfortunately, the whole encounter [[ShootTheShaggyDog doesn't stop more demon tourists from poking around Gensokyo.]]

Midgley is believed to have unintentionally done more damage to the environment than any other person in history. In fact, environmental historian J. R. [=McNeill=] argues that he did more damage than any other single organism, human or otherwise, in history!
