** The Louvre was burned to the ground as a birthday present for Murderface after he declared all the art in it stank.

** The Sphinx ends up beheaded after a performance in Egypt, when cats start going berserk and jumped on the button that turned up the bass, the vibrations causing the Sphinx to break apart. It's seen being repaired at the end of the episode, only for the sarcophagus containing Toki's dead cat to fall on it, crushing it.

Added DiffLines:

* In the ''Comicbook/GreenArrowRebirth'' storyline "Rise of Star City", the villains, discussing their plan to remould Seattle in their image, explain how every city has a heart, and if you cut that out you demoralise the populace. Cut to the Space Needle collapsing.

Added DiffLines:

* Downplayed in ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe3'', not only does the 'Hollywood' Sign only gets partially (and not Roland Emmerich like) by Bratt's robot, the Capitol Records Building (named the World Records Building), while it does collapse, we only get to briefly see the top part of it fall onto the ground. As for the rest of Hollywood? It's sadly offscreen.

* ''Series/DesignatedSurvivor'': The U.S. Capitol Building is blown up in a terrorist attack during a State of the Union address, which decapitates the whole government so severely that the 11th person in the line of succession (the character of the title) is sworn in as President.

** ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert'' has a {{cutscene}} of the Eiffel Tower getting nuked if you fail one mission as the Allies, and another cutscene of a Soviet air strike levelling the Parthenon.

** ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert'' has a {{cutscene}} of the Eiffel Tower getting nuked if you fail one mission as the Allies, and another cutscene of a Soviet air strike levelling the Parthenon. Also, the Soviets are shown blowing up the Acropolis of Athens during their invasion of Greece. This highly upsets General Stavros, who vows revenge on Stalin.

In fact, in order to rebuilt its monuments a painting of the city dating from the XVIII century was used as a model.

* The Bolsheviks destroyed Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Savior in order to make room for the Palace of the Soviets, a totally epic structure which would have been the tallest building in the world at the time. They got as far as digging the foundation, but WorldWarII intervened and derailed the project. Construction wasn't resumed after the war and, eventually, they just filled in the foundation with water to create a giant swimming pool. After the fall of the Soviet Union, the cathedral was reconstructed and today exists as it did before communism. Incidentally, this is the cathedral where Pussy Riot staged their famous protest against UsefulNotes/VladimirPutin.
