The reaction to a [=PoMD=] is often [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer fear, anger, and hate]], which may cross over into [[BullyingADragon outright abuse]]. Despite this, they are as equally likely to be a {{Hero}} or a {{Villain}}, depending on whether they believe WithGreatPowerComesGreatResponsibility or MightMakesRight. A person of mass destruction is more likely than normal to undergo SuperpowerMeltdown at some point, channeling the fear of losing control of a conventional weapon of mass destruction, as with an EmptyQuiver situation.

** [[SorcerousOverlord King Sombra]] demonstrates the ability to warp an entire kingdom with his BlackMagic in a matter of seconds. And not even '''''two Alicorns''''' can prevent him from just making the whole place vanish as a contingency. Furthermore, he's also an ImplacableMan against virtually everything except for ThePowerOfLove. And even worse: It's heavily implied that uninterrupted control of said kingdom and its special AmplifierArtifact would inevitably set him on the path to doing similar things to the rest of Equestria as well -- which is reinforced by his BadFuture sequence in the Season 5 finale (including one moment where he generates an almost '''''mountain-sized''''' wall of DarkIsEvil crystals to defend himself against Princess Celestia's troops).

* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'' has [[BigBad The Phantom]] (a.k.a. [[spoiler:Detective Bobby Fulbright('s imposter)]]). In the very beginning of the game, he bombs an ''entire courtroom'' just to destroy a tiny piece of evidence against him. And it's one of his past crimes that ultimately caused the "Dark Age of the Law" (an InUniverse DarknessInducedAudienceApathy era where defense attorneys, prosecutors, etc. are more distrusted than ever).

* Kyrie of ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'' is ''really'' called the [[spoiler:Destruction Code]]. Appropriate, because he can literally [[spoiler:turn everything in the world into sand]]. And he almost does before ThePowerOfLove says otherwise.

* Kyrie of ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'' is ''really'' called the [[spoiler:Destruction Code]]. Destruct. Appropriate, because he can literally [[spoiler:turn turn everything in the world into sand]]. And sand (not that he wants to). [[spoiler:And he almost does does, before ThePowerOfLove the Power of Love says otherwise.]] Morte is far more keen on destroying the world, and given [[MadBomber the number of bombs she carries and how much she loves to use them]], she almost counts in her own right; if she ever figures out how to activate Kyrie's destructive powers on command, ''she will''. [[spoiler:Luckily for the world, by the time she ''does'' learn the phrase that controls Kyrie's powers, he's managed to change her mind on that whole "destroy the world" thing.]]

*** ''DirgeOfCerberus'' shows Vincent (especially in his Chaos persona) and top level Tsviets like Wiess qualifying as this.

** 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 TheDCU.
