* The [[BigBad true villains]] of the [[AWrinkleInTime Time Quartet]] series by MadeleineLEngle are The Echthroi. Beings who want to spread nothing on spiritual level, destroying not just life and matter but ''souls'', and ruining all existence from beginning to end. Their "true" form is described as being like a gash in existence or a streak of Nothingness which is so terrible it causes 'reality' to scream, even in space.

* In a [[Stanislaw Lem]] story (probably from The Cyberiad) a [[Mad Scientist]] creates a machine which eliminates from existence everything that starts with a certain letter, and it gets more void-y from there.

* TheFearMythos features the Quiet, which is perhaps the most dangerous of all the Fears. It is a vast, sentient nothingness that devours entire universes, and one day it will arrive in ours...

* ''VideoGame/StarCraft'' Dark Templar / Nerazim draw psionic power from The Void (essentially, space itself), as opposed to the Khalai Protoss, who use their own HiveMind / {{Instrumentality}} link for power. Void-based abilities apparently include cloaking, trapping targets in a "Void Prison", and (for Zeratul, at least) short-range teleportation.

* In ''Manga/Brave10'', Isanami is the [[spoiler:Brave of Darkness.]] Despite the name, the power she has at her disposal is closer in function to this, rotting everything in the vicinity and turning it all to nothingness.

* WD (Wingding Gaster) has these in ''Ask Frisk and Company'', but doesn't use them much, as by his own admission, they're dangerous and unpredictable, just as likely to harm as to help

** Louise's aligned element is named "Void" and she uses it to blow things up. It also covers some AntiMagic, which fits the "Void" theme better, and illusion magic, which doesn't.
** Another void mage [[spoiler: Tiffania]] has a spell that can wipe out short term memory.

* In the ''[[Franchise/{{Bionicle}} Mata Nui On-Line Game]]'', [[BigBad the Makuta]] makes himself out to be affiliated with "the Void", and being the [[AnthropomorphicPersonification embodiment of the power of destruction]]. This was all that was known about him for a while, but later story material revealed he had just been bluffing. Though this wasn't a complete lie, as his [[CastingAShadow power is Shadow]], which ''is'' seen as the absence of light, he ''did'' turn himself into a giant sucking vortex at one point, and he ''does'' greatly enjoy destruction.

* ''LegendOfTheFiveRings'': Void is the fifth "Ring", as well as [[InfinityPlusOneElement the most powerful]], but amusingly, it's not this trope (it's really more like "spirit," or what have you). Instead, we have [[EldritchAbomination The Lying Darkness]], which empowers assorted ninja and the like in their efforts to steal the names and identities of good guys and bad guys alike. The only way to destroy it was to ''name it'' via a ritual - once it had a name of its own, it could no longer ''be'' the Lying Darkness, since it now had a truth attached to it.

* 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.
