* It's revealed in ''Series/Supernatural'' that [[spoiler: ''God can be killed''. It's just that because He is very important to reality, the latter would tear apart should it did. However, [[OhCrap this rule also applies to the Darkness]], who is even older than Him.]]

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3'' is a {{prequel}} to the series. If you kill a character who is still alive in the future, you'll be yelled at by your (future!) commander because you created a TimeParadox. If you choose the "No" option on the Game Over screen, it will also read "TIME PARADOX", because the Snake you are playing as in this one is Big Boss.
** Metal Gear Solid 5 also gives you a "Time Paradox" ending if you let Ishmael die during the prologue. [[spoiler: Given that Ishmael is the real Big Boss, this is kind of important.]]

* In the mythology of ''{{Suikoden}}'', Sword (a being that could destroy anything) and Shield (an indestructible being) got into a fight. When Sword struck Shield, both shattered into 27 pieces, the True Runes. And the Big Bang.

** The giant brass golem [[HumongousMecha Numidium]] was built by the Dwemer, an extinct race of elves commonly mislabeled as "dwarves" who were essentially [[FlatEarthAtheist atheists in a world where gods were very real]]. Numidium was essentially their refutation of the gods made material. Numidium had a nasty habit of causing Dragon Breaks because of this, such as the temporal toxic waste dump in Elsweyr where Tiber Septim's mages tried to figure it out after the Dunmer Tribunal gave it to him as a tribute, or the Warp In The West, where all the endings in Daggerfall essentially simultaneously happened and the temporal paradox was so straining on reality that a nuclear-like explosion occurred. Oh, and, during one part of the process, the Dwemer did... ''something'' that apparently pissed off reality, ending with every single one of them completely ''wiped'' from existence while keeping everything else intact. Weird things happen when you make a robot powered by the heart of a dead god.

* In VideoGame/Dota2, Nerif the Oracle's backstory involves one of these. A king used Nerif's powers of prediction to come up with military strategies. However, one day, rather than assure him of victory as usual, Nerif told the king that an upcoming battle "could go either way". The king interpreted that as meaning that he could win through his superior might, but in reality it meant that the battle would literally go both ways: reality bifurcated, causing the soldiers to simultaneously experience being alive and dead, victorious and defeated. As a result, everyone in the battlefield was driven to insanity by the incomprehensible paradox that was happening before their eyes, a paradox which started to rapidly spread throughout the universe. Nerif was quickly kicked out of his dimension and banished to our world, although by that time it was already too late to stop the crumbling of reality that was occurring in that dimension.

* In ''Series/TwelveMonkeys'', such paradoxes tend to occur frequently as a result of bringing two versions of the same object from different time periods into contact. These paradoxes tend to emit bright glows of light and have varying effects. The second season reveals that [[spoiler:the Army of the Twelve Monkeys are trying to [[TimeCrash collapse time]] using this method, by killing "primaries" with pieces of themselves.]]

* On ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'', this is [[BigBad Vandal Savage's]] master plan in the first SeasonFinale -- [[spoiler: using time travel to work in conjuncture with two younger versions of himself, he intends to detonate an Nth Metal meteor, causing an EarthShatteringKaboom, in three different time periods. The paradox resulting from the world being destroyed three times will cause time to collapse in on itself and rewind to AncientEgypt (when the meteors first fell and Savage was made immortal), allowing him to start over and conquer the world from the start.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': This is said to be the only way to kill Lord English, who is explicitly described as "immortal" and "invincible" with "the power to destroy absolutely anything". The paradox occurs when [[spoiler:Alt-Calliope turns herself into a black hole that sucks up the Green Sun, removing a large portion of Lord English's raw power and causing the section of the Furthest Ring he'd been putting cracks in to finally break apart into oblivion. At that point, Vriska uses the weapon she stole from Lord English, a weapon that can instantly defeat ''anyone'', effectively turning Lord English's "destroy everything" power against himself. It's not quite clear what the aftermath of all that was, but the heroes seem content that Lord English is truly, finally dead.]]

* In the third arc of ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', Beatrice says she'll use [[LanguageOfTruth red text]] to [[spoiler:deny the existence of witches]]. This results in a paradox which appears to destroy the entire Meta-World. [[spoiler:It ends up all being just a trick, though.]]
