* A deliciously silly ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' fic on the BioWare boards [[http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/97/index/1132093/1#1147841 here]] has Alistair as DM resort to this after a staggering amount of player stupidity from Morrigan, Sten, Wynne, and Oghren. "Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies" is actually the title.

* The previous DM is ''Manhua/InfinityGame'' did this to his world by wiping out everybody except D.D./Trishia, an {{NPC}}, but mostly because he was insane and bored. [[spoiler:This killed the players, who were in the game at the same time, in real life]].

* ''TabletopGame/TheApocalypseStone'' was a Second Edition ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' module deliberately designed for [=DMs=] that wanted to do this, in preparation for starting over with Third Edition. In it, the players steal a MacGuffin that triggers the end of the world. They can undertake quests to prove they are worthy to [[HeroicSacrifice die heroically]], but in the canonical ending, can't really do anything to prevent the world from imploding. However, the book included several cop-out scenarios to save things at the last minute in case the DM gets cold feet (or is being threatened with death himself...)

* [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment The Spoony One]], in his ''WebVideo/CounterMonkey'' series of videos, tells of a ''{{TabletopGame/Shadowrun}}'' campaign that had gone so far OffTheRails, that he was forced to do a TotalPartyKill to bring everyone back down. Spoony even suggests doing this once the party gets too rebellious, if only to remind them [[RuleZero who's in charge]]. To give the reader the reason why it went so bad, the [=PC=]s brutally murdered a few museum guards and ''janitors'' all because they were too stupid to wear masks after bungling through an easy heist at a public museum. Spoony was so disgusted by them he had to bring in "falling rocks" from a completely different game [[note]]the Cyber Psycho Squad from ''TabletopGame/Cyberpunk''[[/note]] and kill them as they tried to escape in the sewers.

* In TabletopGame/{{Werewolf}}, a merciful moderator will usually have himself be the first night's victim just to keep the game going for the players. However, if they choose, they will be part of the game, with the "Moderator" card. Per the rules of the game, their card is kept hidden just like everyone else. Should a majority vote be cast to lynch the moderator, it is within the moderator's authority to [[TakingYouWithMe kill off everyone who voted to lynch him]].

* In Nox, casting the spell "obliteration" destroys everything on the screen. Note that the player cannot move while casting the spell and there is no way to get out of range before it completes its task. In the single-player campaign, there is no real reason to cast it other than pure furious spite and frustration at a level's design.

* The magnificently awful tabletop RPG ''TabletopGame/{{FATAL}}'' has for the highest level caster ''job'' the spell F.A.T.A.L., which kills everything on whichever horrible planet the game is set... obviously including the caster and his fellow party members. Now, if only all their campaigns started that way...
