* In the intro to ''[[VideoGame/ShadowOfTheWoolBall Rise of the Wool Ball]]'', the cat leader shatters the protagonist's planet into three larger pieces (plus a lot of debris floating around), so as to easier strip it of its natural resources. [[spoiler:Luckily it's pieced back together in the ending.]]

* ''TabletopGame/{{Runepunk}}'' has the land in which the story takes place actually shifted into a pocket dimension. No-one rightly knows if the land has simply been torn out of the world or the world has been destroyed.

* After [[EarthShatteringKaboom blowing up a planet]], you can colonize the resultant asteroid field in earlier games in the ''SpaceEmpires'' series. You are unable to colonize asteroids any more as of [=SEIV=]. Note that you can also create planets in the games, and you can accidentally ([[VideogameCrueltyPotential or intentionally]]) create a planet out of the asteroid colony.

* The Age of Spire from VideoGame/MystIVRevelation: According to the [[AllThereInTheManual supplemental materials]], it was a planet whose magnetic core became unstable, which repelled large chunks of metal (and lots of attached rock) right out of the planet. Enough time has gone by that the collective gravitational attraction of the chunks towards the center has reached equilibrium with the magnetic repulsion, long enough that the giant floating fragments have enough gravity to have an atmosphere and even some flora.

** Despite the above, many asteroids qualify as shattered worlds since it's thought they're the remains of larger ones destroyed on impacts with others. Such an example is the asteroid [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/8_Flora Flora]] and its "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flora_family family]]". Meanwhile, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4_Vesta Vesta]]'s most conspicuous feature is a ''huge'' crater (actually ''two'' craters) that occupies most of its southern hemisphere and whose responsible impacts expelled to space some of Vesta's mass.
