* The Dark And Omnipotent Antithesis in ''[[FanFic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse Crisis On Two Equestrias]]''. Both Trixies note that technically she doesn't cast spells, she tears spell-shaped holes in the universe and magic rushes in to fill them. She can also tear open an hole and hold it open, creating anti-magic pockets where no spellcasting is possible.

* Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} takes place in an RPGMechanicsVerse where Void is one of the known elements, "the essence of lack or nothingness." Void is specifically an Aspect of destruction or obfuscation of knowledge and seems tied to [[PlaceBeyondTime the Furthest Ring]]. Heroes of the Void are also expected to [[{{Koan}} embrace nothingness to become something]]. The Heroes of the Void seen so far all have used (or will use) their powers for passive PsychicBlockDefense against scrying and omniscience. One Void player was turned into a blank slate with no interests, giving him the potential to be a RenaissanceMan. Unfortunately, his abilities (plus some encouragement from Meulin encouraging his StepfordSmiler nature) ended up driving him insane. The last of the three may be channeling it in her [[PortalDoor Fenestrated Portals]], which seem to cut through the timeless void outside the universe. Furthermore, her class as a Rogue allows her to steal an object's nonexistence, essentially [[RealityWarper giving her the ability to conjure objects from nothing]].

** Minmax, after finding a sword that replicates any inorganic substance it touches, [[http://www.goblinscomic.org/02072012/ caused it to replicate one of these oblivion zones]]. It can no longer change, but it can cut through anything, and nothing other than him can affect it-- to the point that when he drops it, it hovers in midair, impervious to gravity, until he decides to draw it, at which point a portal forms allowing him to grab it no matter how far away it is. (He named the sword Oblivious. Apparently, it's powered by [[AchievementsInIgnorance his inability to understand that it shouldn't be capable of existing]].)

** ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3869347/1 The Grey Templar 2]]''. It has others as well, like the BigBad sith channeling the Void to transform into a [[EnergyBeing Twilight Archon]], the canonical [[AllYourPowersCombined union of a high and a dark templar]]. Bear in mind, this fic was written years before ''Starcraft 2'' came out.

* TabletopGame/YuGiOh TCG: Several monsters' effects that simply remove cards from the field evoke this, such as [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Caius Caius the Shadow Monarch]], which removes a card from the game (and all similar variations of this effect), and [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Steelswarm_Girastag Steelswarm Girastag]], which sends a card to the grave. Both cards evade effects that protect cards from destruction, which is considered very powerful in the game.

* Introduced in Book of the Dead, ''TabletopGame/GeistTheSinEaters'' have the Pit Manifestations, which work by taking an aspect of the victim away. For example, using the [[BlowYouAway Cold Wind]] Pit robs the victim from the ability to breathe, [[PlayingWithFire Pyre-Flame]] Pit makes the victim unable to draw warmth from any heat source, Passion Pit sends the victim into a DespairEventHorizon. This is the most feared Manifestation to run afoul of, and the sheer ''wrongness'' of it [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique makes it a Synergy 7 sin just to use.]]

* ''AnimaBeyondFantasy'' presents Edamiel, a Beryl -godlike entity of light- who embraced oblivion and nihilism, and the Etrien Gnosos which is this trope with FaceMonsterTurn added; and played straight with Ildabaoth Veda (bonus points for being both a CreepyChild and a [[WhiteHairBlackHeart white haired]] pretty girl).

* A Black hole itself is anything but matter(unless you call being ''pure gravity'' matter), it is a region of space-time which can be entered but cannot be left. It has mass, momentum ('rotation') and electrical charge that defines its shape and how it influence the world around it. For all practical purposes entering black hole is CessationOfExistence and the way by which it is enforced (pulling in the fabric of space-time at speed faster than light) allows black holes to shape universe on galactic scale.
