* Any user of Cosmo in ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' can be this should they want it, as even the weaker ones can easily punch with the strength of an artillery shell. Then we have Lizard Misty, who one-shot ''Mount Fuji''... And ''he's nowhere in the league of the '''really''' strong ones''.

* On the subject of ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' games, ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'' gives us [[spoiler:Estelle]], whose powers consume so much aer that they could indirectly lead to the destruction of the world. They're also ''lethal'' to the Entelexeia.

* The Hero from ''LightNovel/MaoyuuMaouYuusha''. Easily the most powerful being in the world, perfectly capable of wiping out whole armies, cities, and mountains by himself with little to no effort. One of his companions mentions that he's so powerful that he's effectively completely removed from humanity in term of capacities.
* Shiba Tatsuya, from ''LightNovel/TheIrregularAtMagicHighSchool'', is able to use one of his powers to replicate the effects of a antimatter bomb at will. [[spoiler:It is a magic that can decompose matter into energy. It is directly decomposing matter down into energy and so there is no loss of energy on this reaction, so the energy released from one drop of water, a paltry 50 milligrams of matter, is equivalent to 1000 tons of TNT]].
* Ikaros, from ''Manga/HeavensLostProperty'', initially appears to be a simple, weak "Pet Class," but is actually the Uranus Queen, a extremely powerful Angeloid that possesses multiple weapons, such as [[spoiler:Artemis, a MacrossMissileMassacre/BeamSpam attack, Apollon, an energy bow with the power to destroy the entire nation of Japan at full power, and Hephaestus, a colossal space warship. Also, she is able to fly at Mach 22 and has an energy shield that can block her own Apollon]].
* ''Anime/NeoHumanCasshern'': Casshern from this show and ''Anime/CasshernSins'' is this, able to destroy countless enemies without breaking a sweat and is credited with ''killing life itself'' (well, [[RuleOfSymbolism the personification of life]], but whatever). It comes to the point where he has to ''actively try to get himself killed''. This is all PlayedForDrama.

* From what we've seen of their abilities in ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'', any First Class Goddess or Demon can probably qualify, especially without their limiters. Furthermore, anyone who obtains a wish can potentially ask for the destruction of the world.
* One of the best-known examples is the eponymous ''Manga/{{Akira}}'' and his fellow Numbers, complete with an opening scene of [[TheTokyoFireball a mushroom cloud destroying Tokyo]]. And that's just in the first thirty seconds.
The Hero ultimate example is probably Akira's successor, [[MindOverMatter Tetsuo]], proving that the Japanese government didn't learn a thing the first time around.
* ''Anime/AquarionLogos'': The titular mecha can destroy all of reality with its heroic counterpart able to literally punch a reality eating black hole monster to death.
* The Colossal Titan and Armored Titan,
from ''LightNovel/MaoyuuMaouYuusha''. Easily ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', are the most dangerous beings ever known and the greatest threat to humanity's survival. Their appearance ended a century of peace and safety, effortlessly destroying the gates of Wall Maria. Over the next year, a combination of [[EatenAlive Titan attacks]], starvation, and a government-mandated culling resulted in 260,000 people dying. Then it's revealed that [[spoiler:they are actually humans with a LovecraftianSuperpower and were [[ChildSoldiers 11 and 12]] years old]], respectively, when they wiped out ''20%'' of the human population.
* ''Manga/BakiTheGrappler'' has multiple people considered this through ''sheer [[CharlesAtlasSuperPower martial arts ability]]''. Most notably is Hanma Yujiro who has been named "the one and only Brute Strength Country", with the USA having made a pact of amity to him. Through Barack Obama.
* ''Anime/{{Beyblade}}'' 's third season G-Rev arc involves [[BigBad Boris]] happily assuming his new Person of Mass Destruction Brooklyn is going to help him TakeOverTheWorld. Unfortunately for everyone, Brooklyn turns out to be AxCrazy and far more interested in [[EarthShatteringKaboom destroying everything]] than following the EvilPlan.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** All Shinigami Captains and Lieutenants are required to have 80% of their power sealed away when travelling to the World of the Living and must receive special permission to release this limiter. If they don't, their very presence alone can warp the souls of the humans around them. During the battle for Karakura Town, Shinigami scientists had to find a way to teleport the whole town into another dimension just to allow the captains and lieutenants to fight to protect it. Otherwise, the Shinigami would have destroyed what they were trying to save. It still almost failed: when one of the boundary pillars collapsed, the real and fake towns began to merge and the destruction Komamura caused affected the real town as badly as the fake town.
** Yamamoto is far and away
the most powerful Shinigami in the Gotei 13. His Shikai alone is enough to wipe out an area many times larger than Karakura Town and even other captain-class characters either have to gang up to fight him or have to use well-prepared strategy to limit his power before they fight him. [[spoiler: His Bankai turns out to be ThePowerOfTheSun, a power that cannot be activated freely as the very act of being in use will destroy Seireitei ''by accident'' if used for too long.]]
** The Espada and
the world, perfectly Fracciones are so powerful, they can function at the level of captains and lieutenants. As a result, their power levels and the destruction they can levy more than equals that of their Shinigami counterparts. In fact, the top Espada are individually more powerful than individual captains and need to be fought several Shinigami versus one Espada. The protective fake version of Karakura Town wasn't solely about protecting the humans from the Shinigami, it was to protect them from the Espada as well.
** The Stern Ritters are extraordinarily powerful individuals,
capable of wiping out whole armies, cities, and mountains by himself curb-stomping even captains without having to stretch themselves into using the full might of their own power. As Quincies, they've been at war with little the Shinigami for a thousand years, but have become particularly aggressive since the Shinigami instigated ThePurge against them 200 years ago. [[spoiler: In less than ten minutes, 16 Stern Ritters cause just under 3,000 casualties in the 6,000 strong Gotei 13, steal five bankais, obliterate Seireitei, and lose only five Stern Ritter in the process.]]
** Yhwach, leader of the Vandenreich, is the Quincy equivalent of Yamamoto. The Shinigami[=/=]Quincy war appears
to no effort. One have begun with a conflict between Yhwach and Yamamoto and escalated. Yhwach is far beyond the power level of even his companions mentions Stern Ritters. [[spoiler: When he and Yamamoto clash a thousand years after their grudge first began, Yhwach steals Yamamoto's bankai and [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill obliterates]] him, meaning that not only does Yhwach have his own power, [[OhCrap he now has Yamamoto's power, too.]]]]
** Thanks to his very colorful heritage, Ichigo is much more powerful than most characters in this manga and the factions in the story work constantly to either use him on their side or neutralize him. His power has been vulnerable to his resolve in the past, lampshaded late in the manga when he irritably observes to an enemy
that he's so powerful getting fed up of villains thinking that the way to defeat him is by shaking his resolve. [[spoiler: It's revealed in the final arc, his own power has been working against him, too: what he thought was his Shinigami power was actually his Quincy power suppressing his Shinigami power and only allowing the Shinigami to manifest in drips. In other words, he's effectively completely removed from humanity in term of capacities.
* Shiba Tatsuya, from ''LightNovel/TheIrregularAtMagicHighSchool'', is able to use one of his powers to replicate the effects of a antimatter bomb at will. [[spoiler:It is a magic that can decompose matter into energy. It is directly decomposing matter down into energy and so there is no loss of energy on this reaction, so the energy released from one drop of water, a paltry 50 milligrams of matter, is equivalent to 1000 tons of TNT]].
* Ikaros, from ''Manga/HeavensLostProperty'', initially appears to be a simple, weak "Pet Class," but is actually the Uranus Queen, a extremely
much more powerful Angeloid that possesses multiple weapons, such as [[spoiler:Artemis, a MacrossMissileMassacre/BeamSpam attack, Apollon, an than even previous arcs depicted him as.]]
* In ''Manga/Brave10'', Isanami's [[PowerOfTheVoid darkness power]] is extensive and none-too-choosy about the victims in its radius.
* Victor of ''Manga/BusouRenkin'' is significantly smaller in radius than most Persons of Mass Destruction, but more deadly: thanks to his [[PowerIncontinence always-on
energy bow with the power to destroy the entire nation of Japan at full power, and Hephaestus, absorption powers]], he would likely kill every human being within a colossal space warship. Also, she kilometer or two if he stayed in one place for more than an hour. [[spoiler:Main character Kazuki is able to fly at Mach 22 and has an energy shield that can block her own Apollon]].
* ''Anime/NeoHumanCasshern'': Casshern from this show and ''Anime/CasshernSins'' is this, able to destroy countless enemies without breaking a sweat and is credited with ''killing life itself'' (well, [[RuleOfSymbolism the personification of life]],
immune, but whatever). It comes to the point where he has to ''actively try to get himself killed''. This is all PlayedForDrama.only because he's turning into a Victor-alike himself.]]



* In ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' we have Havoc, whose powers consisted of spontaneously generating vacuums for [[ExplosiveDecompression explosive results]] and a [[PowerAtAPrice remuneration]] of [[EatsBabies drinking the blood of children]]. There was pretty much no way she ''couldn't'' use her powers to murder tons of people.
* The Wretched Egg/Red Man/[[spoiler:Shiro]] from ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'' is this, managing to cause an earthquake powerful enough to destroy most of Tokyo. Also has the ability to massacre people with the wave of a hand.
* ''LightNovel/TheDevilIsAPartTimer'': When he goes all out, [[{{Satan}} Sadao Maou]] is so overwhelmingly powerful that even something as simple as a punch can be seen from ''outer space''.
* Guilmon from ''Anime/DigimonTamers'', [[UnstoppableRage when you piss him off]] and [[DeadlyUpgrade unleash the Digital Hazard]], resulting in a creature that could ''destroy the world simply by existing''. Subverted in that he was accidentally created by someone who didn't want a weapon of mass destruction.
* ''Manga/DragonBall'':
** Goku's Oozaru transformation is a threat early on. He destroyed Pilaf's castle in minutes and was only stopped because his tail was removed. Jackie Chun prevents any further tranformations for years by using a [[KamehameHadoken Kamehameha]] to ''blow up the moon''. (Kami restores it later, after ensuring Goku's tail won't grow back again.)
** Later on, King Piccolo levels a city, and after that, Piccolo Jr. one-ups Tenshinhan from the previous tournament by not only destroying the ring, but leveling the entire island it was on.
** ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' ups the ante. Consider that planet-destruction was a normal occurrence by the Saiyan Saga (Piccolo with the moon - a second time; Vegeta with Planet Arlia), and that every heroic character becomes exponentially stronger after that... Even [[TheWoobie Krillin]] could probably destroy a planet with a click of his fingers by the end of the Namek Saga, despite not even being a threat to Frieza-- which speaks volumes about just how powerful ''he'' is. Perfect Cell claimed to be able to destroy the entire solar system in a single blast with his energy, before Gohan stopped him.
** 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''.
** Broly takes it [[UpToEleven even further]], being capable of wiping out an entire ''galaxy''.
** By the time of ''[[Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods Battle of Gods]][=/=]Anime/DragonBallSuper'', era, Goku has reached [[PhysicalGod god-level strength]] and during his fight with Beerus, merely clashing of punches causes ripples through reality that shake up the '''entire universe''' and would've eventually '''destroy''' it. In addition, Beerus is shown to be capable of [[SneezeOfDoom destroying planets by sneezing]]. [[spoiler:Beerus' [[AlmightyJanitor servant/trainer Whis]] would be one as well, as he's stronger than Beerus and Goku ''combined'', but he also has far better control of his power and thus doesn't end up actually destroying anything.]]
** However the Universe 6 Saga reveals Zen'O (a.k.a. the [[GodEmperor Omni-King]]), the GuardianOfTheMultiverse, who trumps every character in the series. It's stated he's so powerful he's capable of one-shotting the entire [[TheMultiverse Multiverse]], consisting of twelve universes, if he wished. Whis reveals there used to be eighteen universes, before Zen'O destroyed six of them when he was upset. Fortunately he's a [[GodIsGood benevolent being]] who serves as an AllPowerfulBystander. [[spoiler: We finally get to see this at the end of the Future Trunks saga, with him obliterating the entire future timeline that was corrupted by Zamasu.]]
** Upon fusing with Goku Black - [[spoiler:who is essentially his body-swapped future/alternate timeline self]] - Zamasu could be considered one of these. Although he lost his immortality by doing so, his sheer power in one-on-one combat was potentially frightening. As well as besting Goku, Vegeta, ''Vegito'' and Trunks (that is, before any of them received outside help), he was still quite the threat even when he was on the ropes. [[spoiler: With his whole body destabilising due to Trunks' ''Spirit Sword'', Zamasu's last-ditch attack was to consume the (future) Earth's atmosphere and rain a civilisation-destroying airstrike on the entire planet. A barrier from the Supreme Kais was all that stopped the heroes from being flattened.]] ''Literally everything else on Earth'' - buildings, people and all - was destroyed. In the end, Goku called in Zen'O and had him [[spoiler: ''destroy the timeline'' so that he, Vegeta, Trunks and the rest could use the distraction to ride the time machine back to the present before it collapsed]] and erased them from existence.
* Ifurita of ''Anime/ElHazardTheMagnificentWorld'' is one. However, she's far more level headed and self-controlled than most examples.
* The diclonii from ''Manga/ElfenLied'' are a borderline example; through their spreading of TheVirus that propagate their species and their powerful psychic abilities, they're a very real danger for humanity (especially due to the {{masquerade}})... However, most are ''already'' shamelessly homicidal due to horrible abuse and maltreatment, and the GovernmentConspiracy treating the few diclonii they don't cull as lab rats do not improve matters.
** Lucy also gets steadily less borderline as time goes by in the manga, and eventually ''disappears'' by the end of it all, where her vectors become so numerous and massive, she can [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt wipe out all of humanity]] from a single location.
* Gildarts from ''Manga/FairyTail'' wields the "Crash" magic, allowing him to destroy pretty much anything he touches. Unfortunately for the people of Magnolia town, he often lets his mind wander while walking, and fails to pay attention to things like walls, houses and buildings, thus leaving a trail of destruction behind him as he benignly plows through them. When the townspeople catch wind of his return, they hastily activate a mechanism that essentially ''changes the town's layout to give him a straight path to the guild.'' He also counts as a HandicappedBadass, due to having lost some of his limbs and a few internal organs to a black dragon that even '''''he''''' couldn't defeat.
** Zeref is an even better example; he's TheDreaded for a reason. Not only is he capable of [[WalkingWasteland Death Magic]] on a scale that turns an entire forest into desiccated, shriveled husks, but ''his'' Living Magic, which is used by other characters to basically create {{mooks}}, creates colossal, nigh-unstoppable {{Eldritch Abomination}}s that carve a path of destruction through entire continents. [[spoiler:And he wishes he could take it all back, preferably [[DeathSeeker by dying]].]] At least until his disgust with the world becomes so great that [[spoiler:he wants to [[KillAllHumans wipe out humanity]]]], that is.
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'':
** Almost any and all State Alchemists. [[ColonelBadass Roy Mustang]] [[PlayingWithFire burns down whole city blocks by snapping his fingers]]. [[SociopathicSoldier Solf J. Kimblee]] [[HavingABlast blows up neighborhoods by clapping his hands]]. [[LargeHam Alex Louis Armstrong]] [[DishingOutDirt rearranges the earth's crust by punching it]]. [[BadassMoustache Basque Grand]] [[WalkingArmoury transmutes entire buildings into weapons]]. [[ShellShockedVeteran Isaac [=McDougal=]]] [[AnIcePerson nearly buried Central City in a glacial layer of ice]]. It's worth noting that the Ishvalan civil war--which had been dragging on for seven years--ended within months of Order #3066 going out. What was the order? To [[HumanWeapon weaponize]] and send in the State Alchemists.
** [[BareFistedMonk Scar]] can deconstruct matter just by [[TouchOfDeath touching things]] with his [[RightHandOfDoom right hand.]] This includes [[YourHeadAsplode human brain]] [[CruelAndUnusualDeath tissue.]]
** [[BigBad Father]] takes the trope up to the next level; he is so powerful that he is able to [[spoiler: ABSORB GOD, and create a sun in the palm of his hand.]]
* Once the two sisters come together to form ''Anime/{{Genocyber}}'', ''nothing'' is left standing after their rampage.
* A running theme in ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' is keeping the title character from getting bored, since as an immature and easily-fed up RealityWarper, she has the potential to destroy the world as we know it (without consciously intending to) and remake it into something more entertaining. Several factions within the series make it their goal to prevent this, whereas others actually want it to happen.
* Ikaros, from ''Manga/HeavensLostProperty'', initially appears to be a simple, weak "Pet Class," but is actually the Uranus Queen, a extremely powerful Angeloid that possesses multiple weapons, such as [[spoiler:Artemis, a MacrossMissileMassacre/BeamSpam attack, Apollon, an energy bow with the power to destroy the entire nation of Japan at full power, and Hephaestus, a colossal space warship. Also, she is able to fly at Mach 22 and has an energy shield that can block her own Apollon]].
* The Tribe of Heroes in ''Anime/HeroicAge'' was a race composed entirely of BloodKnight {{Kaiju}} who nearly wiped themselves out in a massive civil war that obliterated entire ''star systems'' in the crossfire. As punishment, the Tribe of Gold (the gods of this particular fictional universe) sealed each of the five surviving members of the tribe into the bodies of members of other tribes. These individuals, called "Nodos", possess incredible powers (like super strength and the ability to survive in hard vacuum) even in their normal forms, and can also call upon the Heroes within them to transform into NighInvulnerable {{Kaiju}} capable of annihilating entire armadas without breaking a sweat.
* Shiba Tatsuya, from ''LightNovel/TheIrregularAtMagicHighSchool'', is able to use one of his powers to replicate the effects of a antimatter bomb at will. [[spoiler:It is a magic that can decompose matter into energy. It is directly decomposing matter down into energy and so there is no loss of energy on this reaction, so the energy released from one drop of water, a paltry 50 milligrams of matter, is equivalent to 1000 tons of TNT]].
* In ''LightNovel/IsItWrongToTryToPickUpGirlsInADungeon'', certain elves play this role as back-line mages; they can cast spells that can destroy a whole army of monsters in one go.



* Hotaru Tomoe from ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', a.k.a. Sailor Saturn, the senshi of destruction and rebirth, is a perfect example. Able to destroy a planet at will, and just about anything by sacrificing herself in the process.
** In ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon,'' [[spoiler:Princess Serenity ''herself'' is the Person of Mass Destruction, caused by her being driven insane by the sight of Prince Endymion's death]]. In the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] and [[Anime/SailorMoon original anime]], [[spoiler:she has the potential to be this but is generally a Person of Mass Healing]].
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** All Shinigami Captains and Lieutenants are required to have 80% of their power sealed away when travelling to the World of the Living and must receive special permission to release this limiter. If they don't, their very presence alone can warp the souls of the humans around them.

* ''Manga/BakiTheGrappler'' has multiple people considered this through ''sheer [[CharlesAtlasSuperPower martial arts ability]]''. Most notably is Hanma Yujiro who has been named "the one and only Brute Strength Country", with the USA having made a pact of amity to him. Through Barack Obama.
* In ''Anime/CastleInTheSky'' the robot guardians of the titular Castle in the Sky certainly qualify. One of them almost manages to takes out an entire military base [[JustForPun single]]-[[NotHyperbole handed]], if not for Dola's interference and the artillery reprisal from the airship Goliath.
* In ''Anime/SandsOfDestruction'', [[spoiler:Kyrie]] is definitely a Person of Mass...well ''World'' Destruction actually. He basically has the power to revert anything (even the entire planet) back to its elemental sand. He was created by the gods specifically for this purpose, and his power becomes active whenever someone comes along who sincerely wishes the world would end.
* One of the best-known examples is the eponymous ''Manga/{{Akira}}'' and his fellow Numbers, complete with an opening scene of [[TheTokyoFireball a mushroom cloud destroying Tokyo]]. And that's just in the first thirty seconds. The ultimate example is probably Akira's successor, [[MindOverMatter Tetsuo]], proving that the Japanese government didn't learn a thing the first time around.

* Lina Inverse from ''The LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' has a spell that works like a tactical nuke, AND a spell that can undo reality itself. Every now and then someone, from a bandit chieftain to a demon lord, tries to command, manipulate or coerce a person with such powers to work for them; Xellos appears to be the most successful with that, because he does not try to coerce, blackmail or threaten Lina: he is in no way sincerely nice to her, but he IS nice.
* In the series ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins'' [[spoiler: Meliodas, in his backstory, wiped out the kingdom of Danafor single-handedly when he lost control of his powers in the past]].

to:

* Lina Inverse from ''The LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' has Mahoro of ''Manga/{{Mahoromatic}}'' is an extraordinarily powerful RobotGirl who wields a spell [[{{BFG}} huge pistol]] and can rip apart HumongousMecha with her bare hands. She was created specifically to battle aliens. The trope of her creators [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer treating her like crap]] is notably averted, as everyone really likes her and are friendly to her, and the fact that works like [[spoiler:the more she uses her ultimate weapon, the shorter her lifespan is. Has a tactical nuke, AND major part in parts of the plot, where using it could kill her. It eventually does.]]
* Several people in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' qualify. Just about any powerful mage could probably take out
a spell good chunk of a city with little trouble. ''Then'' you have the ''really'' strong guys, such as Jack Rakan (accidentally blew up a mountain), Fate (pretty much obliterate an entire city sector with the flick of his wrist), Evangeline (beat the crap out of Fate when they fought), and Nagi (who beat Evangeline with no trouble at all). But the most ridiculous example is Asuna; her AntiMagic [[spoiler:actually caused a FloatingContinent to crash, and nearly destroyed the entire Magic World. Even worse is the fact that she didn't intend to do that; other people are capable of harnessing that power.]]
** In-Universe, many people believe Queen Arika to be one of these, thinking she caused a FloatingContinent to crash. [[spoiler:She's actually taking the blame for Asuna]].
** [[spoiler:Chachamaru]] also counts now that's capable of summoning a KillSat
that can undo reality itself. Every now take out an EldritchAbomination.
* The Otome of ''Anime/MaiOtome'' are thinly veiled analogs for [=WMDs=], complete with a "SOLT" conference based on the real world "SALT" (Strategic Arms Limitations Talks)
and then someone, from a bandit chieftain issues similar to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. The main Otome also have the added danger of being volatile young women in the middle of a demon lord, twisted LoveTriangle, so you ''know'' there's going to be trouble. One of the girls involved in that triangle ([[spoiler:Nina]]) snaps and ''literally'' tries to command, manipulate or coerce a person with such powers to work for them; Xellos appears to be destroy the world in the last few episodes.
* The Hero from ''LightNovel/MaoyuuMaouYuusha''. Easily
the most successful powerful being in the world, perfectly capable of wiping out whole armies, cities, and mountains by himself with that, because he does not try little to coerce, blackmail or threaten Lina: he is in no way sincerely nice to her, but he IS nice.
* In the series ''Manga/TheSevenDeadlySins'' [[spoiler: Meliodas, in his backstory, wiped out the kingdom of Danafor single-handedly when he lost control

* All the minus in ''Manga/MedakaBox'' certainly count [[spoiler:with the exception, apparently, of Shiranui]]: Kumagawa can revert everything to nothingness([[TheEndoftheWorldAsWeKnowIt including the FRIGGIN' WORLD]]), Shibuki can open long-gone scars (and that includes damage done to structures of buildings... [[FridgeHorror Just guess what happens when she goes to a recently rebuilt or reformed one and uses her power...]]), Mukae has the power to corrode things with her bare hands (even the air!) and she uses it to melt away an ''entire school building'', and last but not least, Gagamaru, who can move any kind of injuries he would suffer to another random person... Luckily, he was never hit by something like a falling plane or an explosion of some sort--at least, not that we know of.
** Then we have the Not-Equal Ajimu Najimi, which, with her some quadrillion skills, is the closest thing to a god
in the past]].manga. [[OhCrap Unfortunately, she is the main antagonist.]]
* ''Stink Bomb'', the second story in the ''Anime/{{Memories}}'' anthology film, is about a chemist who swallows a tablet, thinking that it's harmless cold medicine. Unfortunately, it turns out to be an experimental drug that makes him emit clouds of poison gas. (It also gives him immunity to most conventional weaponry.) What makes this Person of Mass Destruction particularly dangerous is that he has ''no idea'' that he's emitting all this poison, and is on a delivery mission that will take him straight into a major population center.



* ''Anime/NeoHumanCasshern'': Casshern from this show and ''Anime/CasshernSins'' is this, able to destroy countless enemies without breaking a sweat and is credited with ''killing life itself'' (well, [[RuleOfSymbolism the personification of life]], but whatever). It comes to the point where he has to ''actively try to get himself killed''. This is all PlayedForDrama.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'':
** All of the Eva pilots are capable of absolute destruction of the world, made worse by the fact that they're all particularly emotionally unstable fourteen-year-olds. They regularly seem to defeat monsters capable of destroying the human race (leveling cities is child's play)
** In one episode [[spoiler: Shinji actually melds with his Evangelion and is able to successfully destroy an angel ''when his Eva was completely out of power''.]]
** Also, in ''End of Evangelion'' Asuka manages to completely destroy a massive army's offense and almost manages to [[spoiler: destroy the mass-produced Evas in under five minutes.]]
** In ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'', Shinji becomes one ''by accident'' when he [[spoiler: triggers a Near Third Impact from his sheer determination to save Rei. Although Kaworu manages to stop it with the Spear of Longinus, it still kills most of humanity and does even more damage to the Earth's biosphere.]]
* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** Whitebeard is definitely an example of this. His [[spoiler:earthquake]] powers were once described as being enough to [[spoiler:destroy the world]]. [[spoiler: And then [[OhCrap Blackbeard causes a tsunami, make an entire]] ''[[OhCrap island]]'' [[OhCrap tilt on it's side,]] ''[[OhCrap splits it in half]]'', [[OhCrap and collapses one of the largest buildings in the world.]]]]
** Mermaid Princess Shirahoshi [[spoiler: can summon and speak to Sea Kings, some of the most powerful and intelligent creatures in the sea. And these aren't your run-of-the-mill Sea Kings that the heroes punch out on occasion, these are [[{{Kaiju}} Sea Kings so big they could effortlessly swallow a battleship whole]]. This ability also makes her the ancient weapon Poseidon. So all she needs to do is call out and [[http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140925235059/onepiece/images/a/aa/Shirahoshi_Summons_Sea_Kings_as_a_Child.png these guys]] will show up and eat up whatever she might want them to. Good thing she's kind of a peaceful girl.]]
** Seems to be requirement to advance to [[BadassInCharge admiral]] in the Marines: Sakazuki is a [[ConvectionSchmonvection living volcano]], Borsalino can level cities with FrickinLaserBeams, [[AnIcePerson Kuzan]] can freeze entire islands over and finally Isshô can summon '''[[GravityMaster meteors]]''' to crash down on the battlefield.
** ''One Piece'' is a series where you do ''not'' need to have superpowers to be a Person of Mass Destruction, because the {{Charles Atlas Superpower}}s are ''that'' extreme. Take the world greatest swordsman, Dracule "Hawk-Eye" Mihawk, who can chop up armadas and ice mountains alike with no real effort (and [[RazorWind without even needing his sword to touch his target]]), or Vice-Admiral Garp, who in a flash back offhandedly mentions ''crushing mountains'' as a training exercise, and has visibly thrown iron balls the size of battleships around with little effort.
** 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.]]
* ''Manga/OnePunchMan'': The Heroes Association naturally has more than a few, like Tatsumaki, who can lift an entire city's worth of rubble to throw at a metropolis-sized mothership, or Genos, who can incinerate entire city blocks easy. But the epitome is the titular protagonist, Saitama, who ''[[http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11112/111128182/3964039-7967148121-39640.png split the goddamn atmosphere]]'' when he actually threw a somewhat serious punch at someone.
* Taken a bit less seriously in ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' (obviously) with Hunny-''senpai''. After Japan's Secretary of Defence watched him [[CurbStompBattle beat the ever loving crap out of his father]] (who was supposedly the greatest martial artist of their great martial arts family), he asked Hunny never to fight in public again, lest other countries believe Japan was making a Weapon of Mass Destruction (i.e., this trope). At the time Hunny couldn't have been but 15 or 16.
* A MadScientist creates [=PoMDs=] in ''Out Code'' (no relation to ''Code: Breaker'' aside from pyrokinetic main characters), including a guy who's basically [[Anime/YuGiOh Seto Kaiba]] with ComicBook/{{Magneto}}'s powers (but weaker) and causing several people to [[BodyHorror weep and sweat acid]].
* Mewtwo of the first ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' movie, despite not being human, is definitely a Person of Mass Destruction. This is made all the more apparent by the fact that in some translations his birthplace is listed as [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Mile Island]]. His power is so great the he was able to create an unnaturally huge hurricane that would've eventually wiped out all life on the planet aside from those on his island in the eye of the storm ''just by thinking about it and twirling his hand'', then dissipated the storm just as easily after his HeelFaceTurn. Note that he was in no way focusing his full power on the storm at any time, and in fact kept expanding it even while controlling hundreds of individual Poké Balls, taking on his ancestor Mew in a psychic battle (in which Mewtwo had the upper hand), completely dominating the mind of at least one human, ''and'' psychically suppressing the abilities of every other Pokemon on the island. Afterwards, he then telekinetically lifted every single person and Pokémon on the island--easily over a hundred individuals weighing several tons in total, and again without any noticeable strain--erased their memories of the entire thing, and teleported them--again, ''en masse''--to a port several miles away. It's a good thing he wanted to "prove himself" before his purge--had he been more efficient, he probably could have easily wiped out humanity in an afternoon at most.
** To further put this in perspective, a similar storm was generated in the second movie, but only after the three legendary birds had been fighting all-out for some time. Each of these three combatants, by the way, are implied to be so powerful that they are able to change the climate of wherever they are ''just by existing''--and Mewtwo equaled their combined power without even trying!
*** Said birds (Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres) and Lugia, who shut down the storm in that movie, all have weather control as explicit abilities. Mewtwo does not. He was duplicating it using telekinesis. Yes, that means he's better than several OlympusMons in their specialization while faking that ability with another ability entirely. Be very afraid.
** May be a coincidence, but his powers glow the exact same color as Cerenkov radiation.



* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'':
** Ranma's final opponent is the Phoenix Emperor Saffron. If his maturation ritual is completed successfully, he becomes a living "power plant" to Mt. Phoenix and all its people, constantly shedding light and heat without the slightest effort. If something goes awry, though, he loses control of his power, becoming psychotic, and releasing his energy as raw flame and beams capable of vaporizing mountains. As one character put it, he's like "a flamethrower without a safety valve."
** Most of the [[FanNickname Nerima Wrecking Crew]] qualify as well, who have been responsible for excessive destruction to the city.
** Ryoga in particular, whose SuperStrength, NighInvulnerable nature, and [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength having little control over his own strength]], causes him to leave a trail of destruction wherever he goes. Not to mention his [[FingerPokeOfDoom Bakusai Tenketsu]] that allows him to blow through rocks at ease. At his max power he can generate [[KiAttack Shishi Hokodan]] that is a SphereOfDestruction larger than the whole school.
** Ranma has learnt a fair share of destructive techniques, such as the [[KiAttack Moko Takabisha]] but his most potent one is the [[BlowYouAway Hiryu Shoten Ha]], an extremely powerful tornado that turns an enemy's strength on themself. When using against Kuno, Mousse, Haposai, and Principal Kuno, it created a giant twister that shredded everything nearby. When used against [[PhysicalGod Saffron]] it was strong enough to literally shatter his body.



* Ryner Lute of ''LightNovel/TheLegendOfTheLegendaryHeroes''. He has the power to blow people up, cause things to implode, and completely disintegrate things in a matter of seconds, simply by thinking about it. And yet, [[BullyingADragon people ''intentionally'' try to piss him off and provoke him]]. Real smart, huh?



* The Otome of ''Anime/MaiOtome'' are thinly veiled analogs for [=WMDs=], complete with a "SOLT" conference based on the real world "SALT" (Strategic Arms Limitations Talks) and issues similar to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. The main Otome also have the added danger of being volatile young women in the middle of a twisted LoveTriangle, so you ''know'' there's going to be trouble.

** Seems * #01 is hinted to be requirement to advance to [[BadassInCharge admiral]] this in ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}'', as those in the Marines: Sakazuki know are ''absolutely terrified'' of what would happen if she were to act. Her neutrality is a [[ConvectionSchmonvection living volcano]], Borsalino can level cities with FrickinLaserBeams, [[AnIcePerson Kuzan]] can freeze entire islands over and finally Isshô can summon '''[[GravityMaster meteors]]''' to crash down on the battlefield.
** ''One Piece'' is a series where you do ''not'' need to have superpowers

Take only thing preventing the world greatest swordsman, Dracule "Hawk-Eye" Mihawk, who can chop up armadas and ice mountains alike complete destruction of the Capital, as [[BloodKnight Karasuba]] would go into a frenzy at the chance to fight her.

* Lina Inverse from ''The LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' has a spell that works like a tactical nuke, AND a spell that can undo reality itself. Every now and then someone, from a bandit chieftain to a demon lord, tries to command, manipulate or coerce a person with such powers to work for them; Xellos appears to be the
most horrendous feats of grit and strength; caused the massive upheaval between a deep cavernous temple all the successful with that, because he does not try to coerce, blackmail or threaten Lina: he is in no way sincerely nice 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, her, but he destroyed the top half IS nice.
* All
of the Tower major-level paopei in ''Manga/SoulHunter'' are capable of Justice with two uses of Gear Third (the first made some serious destruction, but none match this trope as well as Nataku, the Tower shake a little...and Human Paopei (long story). And then there's ultimate BigBad [[spoiler: Jyoka]], who is so ridiculously powerful that was just by knocking it takes a massive steel door down). As for after CombinedEnergyAttack from the TimeSkip, ''gods themselves'' to take down.
* Ryoko from ''Manga/TenchiMuyo'' fits here, at least in her original OVA form, since she is listed as destroying several planets in her past. An honorable mention should also go out to [[spoiler:Tenchi himself, as when his godself manifested in OVA 3,
he nearly destroyed the massive ship Noah by using ALL THAT EXISTS.]] Give him his most powerful attack. Keep in mind due, he doesn't mess about. For that Noah was in collision course with Fishman Island matter, every OVA shows that when Tenchi manifests the Light Hawk Wings, he can tell the laws of physics to take a hike and worked have destroy almost certainly destroyed it were it not for anything. OVA 2 shows him rescue 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 other characters from inside the event horizon of a black hole by simply ''breaking it''. Remember that form split an entire city into two slabs a black hole has the mass of a star.
* ''Manga/TowardTheTerra'' has the Type Blue [[PsychicPower Mu]], who are capable of single-handedly destroying starships
and forced them upwards into stopping beams from [[EarthShatteringKaboom Planet Killers]]. Finally, the air. It'd be damn hard Mu have enough of FantasticRacism and [[BewareTheNiceOnes declare war on humankind and society controlled by computers]]. The only thing inhabitants of next attacked world can do, is to argue it now.]][[OhCrap observe]] how their planetary defense is massacred by 7 teenagers.



* ''Stink Bomb'', the second story in the ''Anime/{{Memories}}'' anthology film, is about a chemist who swallows a tablet, thinking that it's harmless cold medicine. Unfortunately, it turns out to be an experimental drug that makes him emit clouds of poison gas. (It also gives him immunity to most conventional weaponry.) What makes this Person of Mass Destruction particularly dangerous is that he has ''no idea'' that he's emitting all this poison, and is on a delivery mission that will take him straight into a major population center.
* As a "Rynasapien", Kurau from ''Anime/KurauPhantomMemory'' can potentially wipe out entire populations. Her sense of morality prevents her from doing so, but unfortunately other Rynasapiens feel less restricted.
* A running theme in ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' is keeping the title character from getting bored, since as an immature and easily-fed up RealityWarper, she has the potential to destroy the world as we know it (without consciously intending to) and remake it into something more entertaining. Several factions within the series make it their goal to prevent this, whereas others actually want it to happen.
* The diclonii from ''Manga/ElfenLied'' are a borderline example; through their spreading of TheVirus that propagate their species and their powerful psychic abilities, they're a very real danger for humanity (especially due to the {{masquerade}})... However, most are ''already'' shamelessly homicidal due to horrible abuse and maltreatment, and the GovernmentConspiracy treating the few diclonii they don't cull as lab rats do not improve matters.
** Lucy also gets steadily less borderline as time goes by in the manga, and eventually ''disappears'' by the end of it all, where her vectors become so numerous and massive, she can [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt wipe out all of humanity]] from a single location.
* In ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' we have Havoc, whose powers consisted of spontaneously generating vacuums for [[ExplosiveDecompression explosive results]] and a [[PowerAtAPrice remuneration]] of [[EatsBabies drinking the blood of children]]. There was pretty much no way she ''couldn't'' use her powers to murder tons of people.
* Victor of ''Manga/BusouRenkin'' is significantly smaller in radius than most Persons of Mass Destruction, but more deadly: thanks to his [[PowerIncontinence always-on energy absorption powers]], he would likely kill every human being within a kilometer or two if he stayed in one place for more than an hour. [[spoiler:Main character Kazuki is immune, but only because he's turning into a Victor-alike himself.]]
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'':
** Ranma's final opponent is the Phoenix Emperor Saffron. If his maturation ritual is completed successfully, he becomes a living "power plant" to Mt. Phoenix and all its people, constantly shedding light and heat without the slightest effort. If something goes awry, though, he loses control of his power, becoming psychotic, and releasing his energy as raw flame and beams capable of vaporizing mountains. As one character put it, he's like "a flamethrower without a safety valve."
** Most of the [[FanNickname Nerima Wrecking Crew]] qualify as well, who have been responsible for excessive destruction to the city.
** Ryoga in particular, whose SuperStrength, NighInvulnerable nature, and [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength having little control over his own strength]], causes him to leave a trail of destruction wherever he goes. Not to mention his [[FingerPokeOfDoom Bakusai Tenketsu]] that allows him to blow through rocks at ease. At his max power he can generate [[KiAttack Shishi Hokodan]] that is a SphereOfDestruction larger than the whole school.
** Ranma has learnt a fair share of destructive techniques, such as the [[KiAttack Moko Takabisha]] but his most potent one is the [[BlowYouAway Hiryu Shoten Ha]], an extremely powerful tornado that turns an enemy's strength on themself. When using against Kuno, Mousse, Haposai, and Principal Kuno, it created a giant twister that shredded everything nearby. When used against [[PhysicalGod Saffron]] it was strong enough to literally shatter his body.
* Once the two sisters come together to form ''Anime/{{Genocyber}}'', ''nothing'' is left standing after their rampage.



* Ifurita of ''Anime/ElHazardTheMagnificentWorld'' is one. However, she's far more level headed and self-controlled than most examples.
* Mahoro of ''Manga/{{Mahoromatic}}'' is an extraordinarily powerful RobotGirl who wields a [[{{BFG}} huge pistol]] and can rip apart HumongousMecha with her bare hands. She was created specifically to battle aliens. The trope of her creators [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer treating her like crap]] is notably averted, as everyone really likes her and are friendly to her, and the fact that [[spoiler:the more she uses her ultimate weapon, the shorter her lifespan is. Has a major part in parts of the plot, where using it could kill her. It eventually does.]]
* ''LightNovel/KyouranKazokuNikki'' has Gouykouou, whose mere presence on Earth could make it violently explode if he doesn't actively suppress his power. Thankfully, he's the nicest guy anyone will ever meet.
* Several people in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' qualify. Just about any powerful mage could probably take out a good chunk of a city with little trouble. ''Then'' you have the ''really'' strong guys, such as Jack Rakan (accidentally blew up a mountain), Fate (pretty much obliterate an entire city sector with the flick of his wrist), Evangeline (beat the crap out of Fate when they fought), and Nagi (who beat Evangeline with no trouble at all). But the most ridiculous example is Asuna; her AntiMagic [[spoiler:actually caused a FloatingContinent to crash, and nearly destroyed the entire Magic World. Even worse is the fact that she didn't intend to do that; other people are capable of harnessing that power.]]
** In-Universe, many people believe Queen Arika to be one of these, thinking she caused a FloatingContinent to crash. [[spoiler:She's actually taking the blame for Asuna]].
** [[spoiler:Chachamaru]] also counts now that's capable of summoning a KillSat that can take out an EldritchAbomination.
* Ryoko from ''Manga/TenchiMuyo'' fits here, at least in her original OVA form, since she is listed as destroying several planets in her past. An honorable mention should also go out to [[spoiler:Tenchi himself, as when his godself manifested in OVA 3, he nearly destroyed ALL THAT EXISTS.]] Give him his due, he doesn't mess about. For that matter, every OVA shows that when Tenchi manifests the Light Hawk Wings, he can tell the laws of physics to take a hike and destroy almost anything. OVA 2 shows him rescue the other characters from inside the event horizon of a black hole by simply ''breaking it''. Remember that a black hole has the mass of a star.
* ''Manga/DragonBall'':
** Goku's Oozaru transformation is a threat early on. He destroyed Pilaf's castle in minutes and was only stopped because his tail was removed. Jackie Chun prevents any further tranformations for years by using a [[KamehameHadoken Kamehameha]] to ''blow up the moon''. (Kami restores it later, after ensuring Goku's tail won't grow back again.)
** Later on, King Piccolo levels a city, and after that, Piccolo Jr. one-ups Tenshinhan from the previous tournament by not only destroying the ring, but leveling the entire island it was on.
** ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' ups the ante. Consider that planet-destruction was a normal occurrence by the Saiyan Saga (Piccolo with the moon - a second time; Vegeta with Planet Arlia), and that every heroic character becomes exponentially stronger after that... Even [[TheWoobie Krillin]] could probably destroy a planet with a click of his fingers by the end of the Namek Saga, despite not even being a threat to Frieza-- which speaks volumes about just how powerful ''he'' is. Perfect Cell claimed to be able to destroy the entire solar system in a single blast with his energy, before Gohan stopped him.
** 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''.
** Broly takes it [[UpToEleven even further]], being capable of wiping out an entire ''galaxy''.
** By the time of ''[[Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods Battle of Gods]][=/=]Anime/DragonBallSuper'', era, Goku has reached [[PhysicalGod god-level strength]] and during his fight with Beerus, merely clashing of punches causes ripples through reality that shake up the '''entire universe''' and would've eventually '''destroy''' it. In addition, Beerus is shown to be capable of [[SneezeOfDoom destroying planets by sneezing]]. [[spoiler:Beerus' [[AlmightyJanitor servant/trainer Whis]] would be one as well, as he's stronger than Beerus and Goku ''combined'', but he also has far better control of his power and thus doesn't end up actually destroying anything.]]
** However the Universe 6 Saga reveals Zen'O (a.k.a. the [[GodEmperor Omni-King]]), the GuardianOfTheMultiverse, who trumps every character in the series. It's stated he's so powerful he's capable of one-shotting the entire [[TheMultiverse Multiverse]], consisting of twelve universes, if he wished. Whis reveals there used to be eighteen universes, before Zen'O destroyed six of them when he was upset. Fortunately he's a [[GodIsGood benevolent being]] who serves as an AllPowerfulBystander. [[spoiler: We finally get to see this at the end of the Future Trunks saga, with him obliterating the entire future timeline that was corrupted by Zamasu.]]
** Upon fusing with Goku Black - [[spoiler:who is essentially his body-swapped future/alternate timeline self]] - Zamasu could be considered one of these. Although he lost his immortality by doing so, his sheer power in one-on-one combat was potentially frightening. As well as besting Goku, Vegeta, ''Vegito'' and Trunks (that is, before any of them received outside help), he was still quite the threat even when he was on the ropes. [[spoiler: With his whole body destabilising due to Trunks' ''Spirit Sword'', Zamasu's last-ditch attack was to consume the (future) Earth's atmosphere and rain a civilisation-destroying airstrike on the entire planet. A barrier from the Supreme Kais was all that stopped the heroes from being flattened.]] ''Literally everything else on Earth'' - buildings, people and all - was destroyed. In the end, Goku called in Zen'O and had him [[spoiler: ''destroy the timeline'' so that he, Vegeta, Trunks and the rest could use the distraction to ride the time machine back to the present before it collapsed]] and erased them from existence.
* Almost any and all State Alchemists in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. [[ColonelBadass Roy Mustang]] [[PlayingWithFire burns down whole city blocks by snapping his fingers]]. [[SociopathicSoldier Solf J. Kimblee]] [[HavingABlast blows up neighborhoods by clapping his hands]]. [[LargeHam Alex Louis Armstrong]] [[DishingOutDirt rearranges the earth's crust by punching it]]. [[BadassMoustache Basque Grand]] [[WalkingArmoury transmutes entire buildings into weapons]]. [[ShellShockedVeteran Isaac [=McDougal=]]] [[AnIcePerson nearly buried Central City in a glacial layer of ice]]. It's worth noting that the Ishvalan civil war--which had been dragging on for seven years--ended within months of Order #3066 going out. What was the order? To [[HumanWeapon weaponize]] and send in the State Alchemists.
** [[BareFistedMonk Scar]] can deconstruct matter just by [[TouchOfDeath touching things]] with his [[RightHandOfDoom right hand.]] This includes [[YourHeadAsplode human brain]] [[CruelAndUnusualDeath tissue.]]
** [[BigBad Father]] takes the trope up to the next level; he is so powerful that he is able to [[spoiler: ABSORB GOD, and create a sun in the palm of his hand.]]
* Taken a bit less seriously in ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' (obviously) with Hunny-''senpai''. After Japan's Secretary of Defence watched him [[CurbStompBattle beat the ever loving crap out of his father]] (who was supposedly the greatest martial artist of their great martial arts family), he asked Hunny never to fight in public again, lest other countries believe Japan was making a Weapon of Mass Destruction (i.e., this trope). At the time Hunny couldn't have been but 15 or 16.
* A MadScientist creates [=PoMDs=] in ''Out Code'' (no relation to ''Code: Breaker'' aside from pyrokinetic main characters), including a guy who's basically [[Anime/YuGiOh Seto Kaiba]] with ComicBook/{{Magneto}}'s powers (but weaker) and causing several people to [[BodyHorror weep and sweat acid]].
* Guilmon from ''Anime/DigimonTamers'', [[UnstoppableRage when you piss him off]] and [[DeadlyUpgrade unleash the Digital Hazard]], resulting in a creature that could ''destroy the world simply by existing''. Subverted in that he was accidentally created by someone who didn't want a weapon of mass destruction.
* The Tribe of Heroes in ''Anime/HeroicAge'' was a race composed entirely of BloodKnight {{Kaiju}} who nearly wiped themselves out in a massive civil war that obliterated entire ''star systems'' in the crossfire. As punishment, the Tribe of Gold (the gods of this particular fictional universe) sealed each of the five surviving members of the tribe into the bodies of members of other tribes. These individuals, called "Nodos", possess incredible powers (like super strength and the ability to survive in hard vacuum) even in their normal forms, and can also call upon the Heroes within them to transform into NighInvulnerable {{Kaiju}} capable of annihilating entire armadas without breaking a sweat.
* All of the major-level paopei in ''Manga/SoulHunter'' are capable of some serious destruction, but none match this trope as well as Nataku, the Human Paopei (long story). And then there's ultimate BigBad [[spoiler: Jyoka]], who is so ridiculously powerful that it takes a CombinedEnergyAttack from the ''gods themselves'' to take down.
* ''Anime/{{Beyblade}}'' 's third season G-Rev arc involves [[BigBad Boris]] happily assuming his new Person of Mass Destruction Brooklyn is going to help him TakeOverTheWorld. Unfortunately for everyone, Brooklyn turns out to be AxCrazy and far more interested in [[EarthShatteringKaboom destroying everything]] than following the EvilPlan.
* Gildarts from ''Manga/FairyTail'' wields the "Crash" magic, allowing him to destroy pretty much anything he touches. Unfortunately for the people of Magnolia town, he often lets his mind wander while walking, and fails to pay attention to things like walls, houses and buildings, thus leaving a trail of destruction behind him as he benignly plows through them. When the townspeople catch wind of his return, they hastily activate a mechanism that essentially ''changes the town's layout to give him a straight path to the guild.'' He also counts as a HandicappedBadass, due to having lost some of his limbs and a few internal organs to a black dragon that even '''''he''''' couldn't defeat.
** Zeref is an even better example; he's TheDreaded for a reason. Not only is he capable of [[WalkingWasteland Death Magic]] on a scale that turns an entire forest into desiccated, shriveled husks, but ''his'' Living Magic, which is used by other characters to basically create {{mooks}}, creates colossal, nigh-unstoppable {{Eldritch Abomination}}s that carve a path of destruction through entire continents. [[spoiler:And he wishes he could take it all back, preferably [[DeathSeeker by dying]].]] At least until his disgust with the world becomes so great that [[spoiler:he wants to [[KillAllHumans wipe out humanity]]]], that is.
* The Wretched Egg/Red Man/[[spoiler:Shiro]] from ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'' is this, managing to cause an earthquake powerful enough to destroy most of Tokyo. Also has the ability to massacre people with the wave of a hand.
* ''Manga/TowardTheTerra'' has the Type Blue [[PsychicPower Mu]], who are capable of single-handedly destroying starships and stopping beams from [[EarthShatteringKaboom Planet Killers]]. Finally, the Mu have enough of FantasticRacism and [[BewareTheNiceOnes declare war on humankind and society controlled by computers]]. The only thing inhabitants of next attacked world can do, is to [[OhCrap observe]] how their planetary defense is massacred by 7 teenagers.
* All the minus in ''Manga/MedakaBox'' certainly count [[spoiler:with the exception, apparently, of Shiranui]]: Kumagawa can revert everything to nothingness([[TheEndoftheWorldAsWeKnowIt including the FRIGGIN' WORLD]]), Shibuki can open long-gone scars (and that includes damage done to structures of buildings... [[FridgeHorror Just guess what happens when she goes to a recently rebuilt or reformed one and uses her power...]]), Mukae has the power to corrode things with her bare hands (even the air!) and she uses it to melt away an ''entire school building'', and last but not least, Gagamaru, who can move any kind of injuries he would suffer to another random person... Luckily, he was never hit by something like a falling plane or an explosion of some sort--at least, not that we know of.
** Then we have the Not-Equal Ajimu Najimi, which, with her some quadrillion skills, is the closest thing to a god in the manga. [[OhCrap Unfortunately, she is the main antagonist.]]
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'':
** All of the Eva pilots are capable of absolute destruction of the world, made worse by the fact that they're all particularly emotionally unstable fourteen-year-olds. They regularly seem to defeat monsters capable of destroying the human race (leveling cities is child's play)
** In one episode [[spoiler: Shinji actually melds with his Evangelion and is able to successfully destroy an angel ''when his Eva was completely out of power''.]]
** Also, in ''End of Evangelion'' Asuka manages to completely destroy a massive army's offense and almost manages to [[spoiler: destroy the mass-produced Evas in under five minutes.]]
** In ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'', Shinji becomes one ''by accident'' when he [[spoiler: triggers a Near Third Impact from his sheer determination to save Rei. Although Kaworu manages to stop it with the Spear of Longinus, it still kills most of humanity and does even more damage to the Earth's biosphere.]]
* From what we've seen of their abilities in ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'', any First Class Goddess or Demon can probably qualify, especially without their limiters. Furthermore, anyone who obtains a wish can potentially ask for the destruction of the world.
* #01 is hinted to be this in ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}'', as those in the know are ''absolutely terrified'' of what would happen if she were to act. Her neutrality is stated to be the only thing preventing the complete destruction of the Capital, as [[BloodKnight Karasuba]] would go into a frenzy at the chance to fight her. A flashback reveals her to be able to [[spoiler: sink aircraft carriers]] with a single blow, hinting at just how powerful she might actually be.
* The Colossal Titan and Armored Titan, from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', are the most dangerous beings ever known and the greatest threat to humanity's survival. Their appearance ended a century of peace and safety, effortlessly destroying the gates of Wall Maria. Over the next year, a combination of [[EatenAlive Titan attacks]], starvation, and a government-mandated culling resulted in 260,000 people dying. Then it's revealed that [[spoiler:they are actually humans with a LovecraftianSuperpower and were [[ChildSoldiers 11 and 12]] years old]], respectively, when they wiped out ''20%'' of the human population.
* Most S-ranked fighters from ''LightNovel/SeikenTsukaiNoWorldBreak'' are considered this. [[spoiler:Moroha Haimura also included, but as unofficial. However, his power is so immense that almost anything else his classmates in the Strikers unit do pales in comparison, such as against the fortress metaphysical in episode 6.]]
* In ''LightNovel/IsItWrongToTryToPickUpGirlsInADungeon'', certain elves play this role as back-line mages; they can cast spells that can destroy a whole army of monsters in one go.
* ''Manga/OnePunchMan'': The Heroes Association naturally has more than a few, like Tatsumaki, who can lift an entire city's worth of rubble to throw at a metropolis-sized mothership, or Genos, who can incinerate entire city blocks easy. But the epitome is the titular protagonist, Saitama, who ''[[http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11112/111128182/3964039-7967148121-39640.png split the goddamn atmosphere]]'' when he actually threw a somewhat serious punch at someone.
* ''LightNovel/TheDevilIsAPartTimer'': When he goes all out, [[{{Satan}} Sadao Maou]] is so overwhelmingly powerful that even something as simple as a punch can be seen from ''outer space''.
* ''Anime/AquarionLogos'': The titular mecha can destroy all of reality with its heroic counterpart able to literally punch a reality eating black hole monster to death.
* In ''Manga/Brave10'', Isanami's [[PowerOfTheVoid darkness power]] is extensive and none-too-choosy about the victims in its radius.

* The WesternAnimation/DisneyAnimatedCanon has a few examples..

* Galacta Knight from the ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' series is renowned as the galaxy's greatest warrior, whose power was so overwhelming that he had to be sealed away.

[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Merlin, Lord of Chaos]]) is a low-key and intelligent twenty-something computer engineer. But if you push him hard enough, you'll discover that under that exterior is a superhuman sorcerer who's good at improvisation, can call on the two greatest sources of power in the known universe, can kick the ass of most beings even without magic, and as a last ditch option, can summon elemental chaos to utterly obliterate everyone and everything within the target area.

** Special mention also goes to Tenma Yato, the second strongest Hadou God after Hajun. His power os so great, his Law constantly holds the multiverse inside a time-stasis field or else the world would immedeatly collapse, should time ever flow normally again, as he has so much spiritual mass that it would be like a "thin paper" (the multiverse) to support a mountain (Yato). The scale of Shinza Bansho can't keep up with Yato, even at the bottom of those on the "Almighty Domain" of Shinza. It is stated at the end that Yato has enough power to curbstomb all characters in the setting minus Hajun, which he could barely defend against.
