* ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' had a limited-run {{Sourcebook}} written as an April Fool's joke called ''The Rifter 9 1/2''. One of the gag articles was written as a TakeThat against [[{{Munchkin}} power gaming]] and PowerCreepPowerSeep known as "Giga-Damage." It was described as a new game mechanic, weapons that literally do 1 million times the damage of regular weapons in the game. The writer suggested that one way to handle this is to have any normal item hit by a Giga-Damage weapon is not only vaporized, but never existed at all. He goes on to explain how he used a Giga-Damage weapon in his game to destroy a piece "[[ChristopherColumbus of the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria]]"[[note]] No, that wasn't written wrong. The writer himself seemed to think that Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria was the name of one ship. Of course, the fact that said writer is something of a BookDumb idiot was a running gag throughout the book[[/note]] and that is how he was able to become the Overlord of Illinois.

* [[ComicBook/WonderGirl Donna Troy's]] (again) {{Retcon}}-ed origin involved her being cursed by a character called the Dark Angel to live [[DiabolusExMachina a life full of pain and suffering]], with her life being restarted and erased from the world's memory --again-- when Donna was at her lowest. (In the most recent case, the death of her ex-husband and son, coupled with the loss of her powers). Hippolyta (the Wonder Woman at the time) and her Teen Titans teammate Wally West (Franchise/TheFlash) remembered her due to being outside the timestream when it was rewritten, and Donna was restored to her previous form, complete with powers (because they used Wally's memories to restore her, and he remembered her best with her Wonder Girl powers).

** [[EldritchAbomination Entropy]], as the AnthropomorphicPersonification of Heat Death, is capable of erasing anything from existence at will (at least as long as they're in her [[DimensionLord domain]]). Most notably, she did this to [[AbusiveParents one of her children]] when [[UnPerson ___]] talked back to her. She's even capable of erasing the other [[TopGod Elders]], just they're capable of willing themselves back ''into'' existence due to being on the same plane as her. She does this to her husband Havoc, the AnthropomorphicPersonification of Mass Hysteria, on a regular basis to the point it's described as being equal to one member of a bickering couple shoving the other one.

** In the Finale Arc, Discord battles the heroes by [[LiteralSplitPersonality splitting himself into his various character assets]]. [[spoiler:Goatcord, who represented his insanity, gets erased when Scootaloo wraps her cape, which was a gift from Entropy and has some of her power, around her hoof and literally punches him into Oblivion.]]
