* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'' averted this. The narration frequently informs how many people die during the battles among giant robots and robeasts and how much destruction they caused.

** In ''Halo:Ghosts of Onyx'' a special type of bomb called NOVA was detonated booby-trap style on a Covenant carrier. Along with vaporizing the carrier and the fleet around it, the NOVA also shatters a nearby moon and ''scorches 1/4th of the planet it was orbiting.'' By the end of it, there's little if anything left alive on the surface of the planet.

* In ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank2016'', late in the game, [[spoiler:Novalis gets blown up by the Deplanetizer]]. However, Clank tells Ratchet that ''everyone'' was evacuated before it happened.



* Spoofed/Averted in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie'' which ends with [[spoiler:the bomb destroying the thick glass bubble that has encased Springfield.]] The huge car-sized pieces of jagged falling glass have a suspiciously small effect on the town and its citizens, with the sole exception of [[spoiler: Dr. Nick, who dies horribly.]]
-->'''[[spoiler: Dr. Nick Rivera]]''': Bye, everybody!

* ''WesternAnimation/MegaMind'': It seems like Mega Mind and Metro Man have an unwritten rule about damage, but when Titan/Tighten goes on a rampage - even tossing an entire ''skyscraper'' at Mega Mind, the trope is subverted, as Mega Mind's Brain Bots are repairing the city after the day has been won.

** ''Series/{{Daredevil 2015}}'' shows that the Chitauri invasion caused significant damage to Hell's Kitchen. Subsequently,[[Creator/VincentDOnofrio Wilson Fisk]] is able to gain a stronghold in the neighborhood. In the first episode of the show, [[Creator/BobGunton Leland Owlsley]] says "[[OpportunisticBastard Heroes and their consequences are why we have our current opportunities]]" referring to the damage caused by the battle. In the same episode, Matt Murdock remarks to Karen Page that "the world watched half of New York get destroyed", though this appears to be hyperbole since the Chitauri appeared to confine the battle to Midtown Manhattan and didn't go into any of the other boroughs or Jersey City.

* The ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' movies play this trope both ways. It's averted between the two films:The death of [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever the giant Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man]] rained splodge over most of the city (and its inhabitants, and cars) and resulted in the devastation and demolition of several buildings; by the beginning of [[Film/GhostbustersII the second film]], the Ghostbusters had been bankrupted by the subsequent lawsuits. But then it's played straight elsewhere in the films - at no point in either of the films (or the 2009 video game) is it confirmed that ''anyone'' has died from an encounter with a ghost. Considering some of the things we've seen the ghosts do (such as ghost driving vehicles - poorly), human casualties were a very real possibility.

* ''Film/{{Transformers}}''
** The first movie. Very strange logic on the part of the army to take the Allspark into the middle of downtown Los Angeles when a horde or psychotic giant alien robots plus the good guys' jet fighter air support, was destined to converge on its location. The ensuing battle destroys a huge number of buildings and who knows how many innocent bystanders. But the situation was so desperate that it [[GodzillaThreshold was the only option.]]

* Averted in Creator/SergeyLukyanenko's ''[[Literature/LineOfDelirium Emperors of Illusions]]''. A former Imperial planet once attempted to secede from TheEmpire, asking the [[BirdPeople Alkari]] for help. TheEmperor sends a fleet to pacify the colony, which engages the fleet sent by the Alkari in the vicinity of the planet. This vicious battle results in debris continuing to fall from orbit for decades. Not that the colonists mind, as nearly all of them were massacred by mercenary squads sent ahead of the Imperial fleet as punishment.

* It's just as well that the prevailing winds were not blowing when Chernobyl exploded. If they had been, the radiation would have blown south over Kiev, making that city uninhabitable. Although the explosion ruined large swathes of Belarusian and Ukrainian countryside, caused the abandonment of one town, Pripyat, and has caused cancer in many people, the city escaped largely unharmed.

Although the explosion ruined large swathes of Belarusian and Ukrainian countryside, caused the abandonment of one town, Pripyat, and has caused cancer in many people, the city escaped largely unharmed. The danger is still present, though, as large wooded areas were likewise irradiated. Most of those trees are now dead and dry. Forest fires are now a real threat, once again raising the possibility of radioactive smoke blowing into a populated area.

** In "Enemy at the Gate", a larger-than-normal Wraith hive ship blows up in low Earth orbit. In fact, the nuclear blast appears to vaporize the ship. There is an incredibly bright flash, and then nothing. No consequences for Earth either. Then there's a giant Ancient city-ship crash-landing in the San Francisco Bay.

* Partly averted in Creator/VladimirVasilyev and Creator/AlexanderGromov's novel ''Antarctic-online'', in which the titular continent inexplicably finds itself in Central Pacific, while the islands that used to occupy the area find themselves near the South Pole. While the novel largely focuses on the political consequences of a continent that nobody wants suddenly becoming prime real estate, there is plenty of talk about the ecological consequences, such as many coastal cities being flooded in the near future as the result of the melting Antarctic ice cap (this is handled, more or less, realistically - it's stated that the process will last for millennia given the sheer amount of ice). There are immediate effects, though, such as tidal waves hitting the coasts from the sudden shift, and the numerous Polynesian islands, stuck in the Antarctic Circle, to evacuate. The world's nations wish to blame somebody, and the blame falls on the newly-declared sovereign Antarctic nation. Many nations demand reparations from Antarctic representatives, even though the continental "jump" was not their fault.

* Averted in Creator/MikhailAkhmanov's novel ''[[Literature/ArrivalsFromTheDark Invasion]]'', where the destruction of the alien mothership's computer causes its autonomous modules to crash and explode, while they were suspended above Earth's major cities, destroying countless historical artifacts and killing millions of people. However, this is still viewed as a victory, as the aliens were planning on enslaving humanity. This also serves to drive humanity to the stars in the later novels of the series. In all fairness, though, 40 million people is still a little low, given that these modules were filled with {{Antimatter}}.

The only HandWave we get is a mention that the explosions were surprisingly small and were mainly limited to several miles in diameter.
