** Then we get to the Buu Saga, by which time not only has every heroic character become so much stronger, Goku almost shakes the planet in two merely by TRANSFORMING into a Super Saiyan 3, and Buu begins to tear holes in the fabric of reality merely by screaming. Buu could also produced an energy ball capable of destroying the Earth ten times over within ''seconds''.

* Alex Mercer in ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'' is another one of the "possibly an accident" variants, as resulting from a virus. In a CrapsackWorld filled witn murderous military fanatics, zombies, and other twisted unholy abominations, he is considered by far '''the''' most dangerous thing out there. And for very good reason. Thanks to the powers granted by the Backlight Virus, Alex is essentially the perfect killing machine. He's [[LightningBruiser incredibly fast and immensely strong]], [[ShapeshifterWeapon can transform his body parts into deadly weapons]], and has incredible [[HealingFactor healing]] [[FromASingleCell powers]] that make him virtually unstoppable. His most dangerous ability, however, is that he can [[TheAssimilator consume anyone he comes across]], [[VoluntaryShapeshifting taking on their appearance, voice, and memories, allowing him to flawlessly impersonate them]]. [[ParanoiaFuel He can be the person right next to you and you'd never know until it was too late]]. There's a reason why Blackwatch gave him the codename "Zeus".

** This was taken further in the {{Elseworld}} story ''ComicBook/TheGoldenAge'', in which GreenLantern witnesses the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and, realizing that his power is on par with the atom bomb, puts his ring away and retires in the belief that no human deserves to wield such power. His reluctant return at the end of the story to combat the archvillain is his [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome shining moment]], and one of the few times in or out of continuity we truly see how much Alan Scott means to Franchise/TheDCU.

** Recently, the Avengers are worried that her son, [[ComicBook/YoungAvengers Wiccan]], might follow in her footsteps. The worst he's done is put a few baddies into temporary comas, but that was enough to make them uneasy. Of course, part of the reason they're uneasy about it is because he ''didn't mean to do it''. He took out twenty guys, all armed with guns and nukes, as a ''knee-jerk reaction'' to his boyfriend being in danger. He wasn't even aware of what he'd done until afterwards. And then it turns out that he's [[spoiler:the [[PhysicalGod Demiurge]], who, at his peak, is capable of stepping outside of the multiverse and rearranging it to his liking]]. On top of ''that''...

*** Jean's children by Scott, [[ComicBook/RachelSummers Rachel]], [[ComicBook/XMan Nate]] and ComicBook/{{Cable}}, all qualify. Rachel is, at base line, nearly omnipotent, with psychic powers on a cosmic scale and the Phoenix is specifically noted as liking her. Nate is arguably even stronger, having been created by Sinister as a LivingWeapon to kill Apocalypse and was estimated as being as powerful as Jean was as the Dark Phoenix at the age of seventeen, later being stated as capable of going toe to toe with the Sentry by Norman Osborn. At his peak, his telekinesis was so strong that it was described as [[RealityWarper 'reality warping']], he lived in mortal fear of accidentally rewriting reality in his sleep (and once, flattened Quito, Ecuador, from most of three thousand miles away, in his sleep) and he wandered in and out of the time stream and up and down the multiverse at will. Cable, meanwhile, is usually inhibited by the Techno-Organic virus. When he's not, he proved capable of holding up an island with his telekinesis while fighting the Silver Surfer. He lost, but only after giving a very good account of himself.

* That goes even more for Franklin Richards. The son of Reed and Sue of the Fantastic Four is, at his full potential, one of the most powerful beings in the universe, able to warp reality on a wider scale than even ''any'' Phoenix host. A psychic PowerLimiter was placed on him to keep him from, well, rewriting reality in his sleep, so at any given point he has PsychicPowers that vary in scope depending on the era (or alternate future version.) Without it, he's created entire realities. ''Every'' other Marvel character on this list takes this kid ''very'' seriously.

To adequately describe the casualty rate that Mark can inflict from THE ATTACK ALONE (not factoring in all the deaths from various infrastructure failures that result from the attack and cut-off supply lines making aid impossible) one researcher uses the term "Mega-deaths". At one point, he is traced by the Richter Scale vibrations he causes with his attacks! They are very graphic in the images as well.

* One Post Crisis Batman comic had a one shot TragicMonster appropriately named "Bomb" who had the power to create small explosions at will from an unknown distance and was unstable, thus if jarred would involuntarily explode with the force of 3 or 4 thermonuclear warheads. The "tragic" part comes from Bomb just being an gentle young woman who has powers she can't control.

* The KamenRider franchise contains several individuals who could be this. One of the most notable ones is KamenRiderKuuga , who actually viewed his growing powers with some worry. During the mid-point of the series when he was dealing with a power up to his basic forms, he unleashed his newly upgraded supermove on a monster. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rQgvNaDlGU It created a devestating explosion roughly two miles in diameter]]. After that, Kuuga had to work with police to get any monster he needed to unleash that move on to isolated areas so as not to hurt anyone. The truly scary part? He gets at least ''two more upgrades'' before the series is done, with exponential rises in power. It was theorized by some that without the extreme self control Kuuga exercised, he could have devastated the entire world.

** However, [[TheHero Monkey D. Luffy]] himself puts everyone above to shame by dealing some pretty amazing feats of damage even before he had discovered Haki or his gear abilities. And that's just for starters. Throughout the anime, Luffy's gum gum attacks combined with his super strength enabled him to TOPPLE WARSHIPS with his bare hands. e.i. ripping the bow off a ship in order to use as an impromptu weapon [[spoiler: albeit while under strengthening hypnosis]], drop kick and sink a tooled up battleship with ease, rend the mast off another ship and impale it upon a monstrously huge whale and to date one of his most horrendous feats of grit and strength; caused the massive upheaval between a deep cavernous temple all the way to the surface city plaza by rapid punching somebody through countless layers of bedrock all the way through to its surface! On the Enies Lobby Arc, he destroyed the top half of the Tower of Justice with two uses of Gear Third (the first made the Tower shake a little...and that was just by knocking a massive steel door down). As for after the TimeSkip, he nearly destroyed the massive ship Noah by using his most powerful attack. Keep in mind that Noah was in collision course with Fishman Island and worked have almost certainly destroyed it were it not for the Sea Kings who stopped it, who themselves remarked on how powerful Luffy is. [[spoiler: Oh, and there is Gear Fourth Luffy: his most powerful attack in that form split an entire city into two slabs and forced them upwards into the air. It'd be damn hard to argue it now.]]
