Fixed Warcraft III entry (World tree was clearly stated to be only damaged, not killed.)
* FantasticNuke category: in the final mission of ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'', Furion decides to mount a final DesperationAttack using a booby-trap on the sacred Mount Hyjal, with the elves' World Tree as bait. The massive explosion results in the destruction of thousands of night elven spirits, the death of the World Tree, and the loss of their immortality, [[TheExtremistWasRight but it works]].

* The Earthling Cruisers from StarControl carry fire-and-forget homing nukes and point-defense laser systems as standard. The nukes are leftovers from a previous war, stored in underground 'Peace Vaults' for about fifty years. Worth noting that the other races of the Alliance were ''very'' pleased to see that Earthlings had a large supply of nukes lying around; most of them had dismantled their nuclear arsenals long ago, but now they were facing an enemy against whom a powerful weapon like a nuke would be quite handy.

* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': Discussed. [[spoiler:Both District 13 and the Capitol have nukes trained on each other, but mutually assured destruction of all humanity keeps them both at bay.]]

* Considered several times in ''TheSalvationWar'', many more if the thread discussions are included. [[spoiler:A nuclear weapon ends up being used to vaporize the angelic Incomparable Legion of Light.]]

->''We're going over there, and bringing the most lethal killing machine ever devised. We're capable of launching more firepower than has ever been released in the history of war. For one purpose alone: to keep our country safe. We constitute the front line and the last line of defense.''

* In the ''Literature/StarshipTroopers'' novel, certain soldiers are occasionally armed with tactical nuclear rockets. They're drilled extensively to "get their money's worth" out of their use.

* In the ''Literature/StarshipTroopers'' novel, certain soldiers are occasionally armed with tactical nuclear rockets. They're drilled extensively to "get their money's worth" out of their use. They are also taken so seriously that weyeballing an attack with a ''simulation'' of one (the actual payload was a smoke grenade) instead of waiting for a targeting solution, and accidentally catching one of his teammates in the simulated blast earns Johnny a ''very'' real flogging.

Moved from Nuke Em. A bit of redundant information, but I can't bring myself to delete "three-day kung fu vampire throwdown".
Added DiffLines:
* In the ''TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness'' [[TheEndofTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Gehenna]] scenario, this is the [[TabletopGame/MageTheAscension Technocracy]]'s answer to the [[PhysicalGod Ravnos Antediluvian]] rising. Well, OK, it was repeated applications of [[{{Magitek}} Prime-enhanced]] spirit-shredding nuclear warheads, followed by the three most powerful Kuei Jin alive throwing down on Ravnos for several days while underneath a hurricane created by their powers to block out the sunlight, followed by the Technocracy focusing the power of the sun on Ravnos ''five times over'' by using multiple redundant orbital solar mirrors, at which point -- already completely exhausted of blood by his three-day kung fu vampire throwdown and having been repeatedly nuked in both his immaterial and his material body -- Ravnos finally turned to ash and died.

* ''Film/TheAvengers2012'': During the [[spoiler: Chitauri invasion]] at the climax, an OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness sends a nuke at Manhattan (technically they sent two nukes, but that was only because they were GenreSavvy enough to know that NickFury would blow one of the planes up) rather than let [[spoiler: the aliens]] spread to the rest of the world. [[spoiler: They actually saves the day when IronMan [[RelocatingTheExplosion redirects it by physically dragging the bomb to the alien ship instead]]]].
