* Sho, the protagonist of the ''{{Guyver}}'' anime is encased in a gravity-based Sphere of Destruction as protection during his TransformationSequence. The villains use this to their advantage in one episode, handcuffing Sho to his girlfriend in the knowledge that if he transformed, the sphere would annihilate her.

* In ''[[LyricalNanoha Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha]]'', these make up most of the attacks of wide-area spell users like Reinforce and Hayate. Even [[WaveMotionGun Starlight Breaker]] was turned into a city-wide SphereOfDestruction in the hands of Reinforce. * Used in ''CodeGeass R2''; [[spoiler:the nuclear-sakuradite weapon FLEIJA causes everything within 8000 meters to cease to exist, surrounding objects are affected by the rapid expansion of air due to the initial explosion and also by the rapid vacuum effect caused by the collapse of the sphere.]] Picture [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_8nBeRJ0KWv8/SLLSSDCM5NI/AAAAAAAACG0/5pSF3g6-erw/s320/02.JPG here]]. * Used ''a lot'' in ''DragonballZ'', especially in the video game adaptations. Sometimes you can apply a [[InactionSequence few cubic feet of air]] for the people who [[KiAttacks shoot these blasts]].

* Several jutsu in ''{{Naruto}}'' have a similar effect:

* Masamori's Zekkai is a tiny SphereOfDestruction in ''{{Kekkaishi}}''. * One of [[spoiler: Kuma]]'s powers, especially Ursus Shock in ''OnePiece.'' In his case it doesn't seem to vaporize anything, just knock out all of the people and leave most of the architecture still standing, despite being an explosion of compressed air.

* A strategic-class attack spell, banned by international treaty, in ''ScrappedPrincess'' causes this. When used on a seaborne target, the spell leaves a bowl-shaped hole ''in the ocean'', which quickly becomes a devastating tsunami. * Firing the [[WaveMotionGun Angel Arm]] in ''{{Trigun}}'' has this effect both at the target and, if used at a high enough power, at the point of origin.

* {{Zeorymer}} [[spoiler: and Great Zeorymer]]'s Mei-Oh Kougeki. * Spoofed in the first five minutes of ''{{Nichijou}}'', when [[RobotGirl Nano]] [[CrashIntoHello runs into a random schoolboy]]. While it certainly ''looks'' impressive, the end result is just Nano and the boy getting stuck on different roofs (although Nano could easily get down [[ShrinkingViolet if she weren't so timid]]), and a bunch of small items being thrown around the town (most of which end up falling on [[FieryReadhead Yuko's]] head).

* ''{{Slayers}}'': Lina Inverse's ultimate spell worked much like this; everything inside the Dragon Slave's blast radius is devastated, while nothing outside of it is even touched. So did pretty much every other destructive spell in her repertoire for that matter.

Added DiffLines:
* The Dark Elves' grenades from ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'' is both this and WeaponsThatSuck. Incredibly nasty, it's powerful enough to eliminate a NighInvulnerable SuperSoldier in a single blow.

Added DiffLines:
* Some sufficiently large explosions in ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriorsGundam'' will do this. Most of the pertinent examples are [[LimitBreak SP attacks]], such as the air based attack for the Gundam Double X, which fires a blast into the ground that causes an explosion at ground level--in space you can see that it's actually a sphere.

* ''RaveMaster'' has one in it's prologue. In an odd use of the trope, the explosion does have some affect other than destroying everything inside of it. Apparently the sheer force of it's destruction created a storm around the circumference of the blast, which has been going for 50 years by the time the protagonists find it.
